We were there for over 90 minutes to get our entrees. 5 of the 6 entrees came out. My order did not come our until later. Also, I had requested a biscuit sandwich with a side of grits. First they came and told me they were out of grits. Next they came out and told me they had no biscuits. I ended up have a biscuit sandwich with a biscuit and no grits.

Nice place for a casual meal. Service is very attentive but not rushed and we sat as long as we wanted.
Food is always reliably good. This is a great neighborhood place to go when you don't really know what you want. Menu covers many types of food. @ of us had their fried chicken which is excellent although you might tell them to hold the gravy or put it on the side. The other items were the Saturday special prime rib and a very large well prepared bone in pork chop with delicious sauteed red cabbage.

Consistently delicious. We go to many new places and this is one of the few that we come back to again and again. The food is always perfect. Best bread pudding on earth. The only disappointment is that my husband and I are moving away so we won’t get to come here again unless we visit ATL.

Everything was good. The host was nice, the server was attentive, the food was great. The environment was inviting. Parking is key which was free. The establishment was easy to find. The prices were amicable.

I felt there could have been a little more variety for a dinner menu.

Waitress was very nice, but...

Service was very slow - took almost an hour to get our food - which was all brunch food.

They ran out of grits and told us 35 minutes after we ordered.

They don’t have real maple syrup, yet they show “‘maple syrup” on their menu.

Food, when it arrived, was fine.

Overall, not what I expect from a restaurant with a high 4’s rating.

Their brunch menu is fabulous! Lots to choose from, even for the non-southerners. I enjoyed the southern Benedict with pimento cheese and ham and added the blue cheese grits...which were amazing.

The only thing we had a problem with was the noise level. We were seated on the porch that was much quieted when we first arrived but then became very loud as other large parties with children arrived. We had guests from another country with whom we wanted to talk and the noise made it hard.

I have been here several times ever since it was Nancy G's. The food and service and ambiance are all very good and I would recommend it highly. I think it is very popular with the neighborhood. Only problem was when we went for lunch there was a bridge tournament going on in the shopping center and they took up all the parking spaces so it was very hard to find somewhere to park!
