A must stop when in Atlanta. I have typically gone to the Midtown location. The one in Buckhead is just as good.

yummy food & great service!! but my goodness it was hot, temperature wise inside! Also, we were seated in a very undecorated/side room part of the restaurant which didn’t quite match the ambiance of the rest of the restaurant. Overall happy experience!!

We had a drink at the bar while waiting for our table. The bartender, Alex (I might be mistaken on the name), was very informative about the menu and she was very hospitable. Once seated, it took several minutes for the server to arrive. Once the server finally arrived, service just went downhill. I worked in the industry for a very long time, and this type of service is unacceptable.

The food was amazing and our server was just lovely. Food and service were top notch.

The decor inside is so dreary. No view. Seemed cold and lifeless as opposed to cozy and warm.

Fantastic southern fare, great service and ambiance. When we first sat down, it was very loud. Our server came in and immediately said the music was too loud. He went and asked for the music to be turned down and everything was great after that. The biscuits and cornbread are amazing. The fried chicken (which we ordered on the side!) was delicious, and I am a fan of the shrimp and grits.

Birthday Celebrations are amazing. From their rewards program I earned a free birthday meal and a dessert. Of course, you must show your loyalty throughout the year! Service was relaxed formal, four different seating options (upstairs, outdoor, formal dinning, and bar) allows any type of occasion.

Overall nice - had a global team in town and we were introducing Southern food. Trainee waiter was nice but needs to be taught how to uncork a bottle of wine & the lead server needed to check in more. Left $$ in my wallet

The food was extremely bland and was nothing to write home about. The ambiance was good, low lighting and pretty quite. Truthfully, I would not go back or recommend this place to friends as the food was extremely lackluster and tasteless. ESPECIALLY the fried green tomatoes...yuck!

Always love this place. Brunch was excellent. That brisket Benedict is a win and a brûlée banana bread pudding for dessert?? How can you go wrong. Thanks for another great visit!

The waiter was pushing to turn the table. We only needed a few hours for the dinner meeting but the pressure to order and move on was annoying.

Fantastic! We were late for our reservation on Valentine’s Day. We called to let them know and they held it.

Upon our arrival, they correctly assumed who were were and were very gracious. They treated us like arrangements bing family members and as they took us to our primo table by a window, they told us to relax, it’s okay we are late and that a drink will help us do just that.

Our server was knowledgeable, friendly, engaging and present, but not intrusive. The food was as described and delicious.

The team concept worked well as multiple team members delivered our meal. Management was clearly visible and frequently walked through the dining room. They briefly engaged with each table and made it feel like they were engaging with old friends.

Celebrated a friend's birthday for lunch. When making reservation asked for a nice "quiter' table which, we got. We ordered a glass of wine and waited a short while to order. Our waiter was very pleasant and didn't seem to mind. The food was delicious - the Ceasar salad with fried chicken = delectable! The restaurant is very nice looking, but it does seem to get noisy when crowded. Ask for a table in the room by the driveway - that room seemed a little less noisy. I look forward to going back soon.
