Wow what a disappointment! From the atmosphere as we walked in without a warm greeting the host said we only have one hour and we must leave- 4 people having brunch on Valentine’s Day and that is how we are greeted!?! Then we received our food and it was average at best, nothing special or tasty. There are so many nicer and much tastier establishments in the Emory area, don’t waste your time here!
The food here is absolutely amazing. The deviled eggs are by far the best ive ever had. The cheeseburger is the best in Atlanta hands down. They are being extra safe during covid 19 and I really appreciate that. Oh and let me not forget to brag on the bagels as they are delicious.
great deli food and great coffee. service is hit and miss, but worth it if you're craving a great chicken salad or pastrami sandwich or a bagel with lox NYC style
Amazing service and great food!
Delicious brunch - we had the smoked hash, Reuben, and matzoh ball soup. The hot chocolate was practically a dessert.
Birthday dinner. Service was great but the kitchen was very backed up and we were there much longer than we needed to be.But our waitress was really attentive
The hostess at the Sandy Springs new location wouldn’t honor my reservation. She said all “Open Table” reservation were funneled to the Emory area location. She wanted us to wait 35 minutes. As bad as restaurants need business...I thought this was horrible.
Went for spaghetti night and it was delicious! Love that the meal comes with a small salad, a piece of garlic bread, and a small dessert. Service was attentive and kind but still made us feel safe. Also a very clean and socially distanced restaurant!
Covid precautions were the best I’ve seen! Thank you
Had a hankering for a pastrami rueben that had to be filled!
Loved every bite. The Bloody Mary and the cucumber salad were great compliments to my sandwich.
One of my favorite ATL restaurants
Amazing food. Staff were friendly. Prices aren’t the cheapest but I think worth it for a great deli experience. Service was ok, but it’s never as good as outside of covid time, but they did the best they could in the circumstances.
a real NYC vibe - brunch was great, and the options available served our group of 6 very well. Enjoyed the Pastrami Egg Sandwich, along with the latkes myself. the Avenue A was very good, though thinly sliced cucumbers vs chopped might make it a little better. Covid safety was good with most customers observing mask requirements until they were actually consuming food or drink. would definitely come again....
Love this place - they're patio is heated! Dogs not allowed on patio but a few spots are along the railing where you could tie a pup up to the railing on the outside. Reservations required for weekend brunch (might just be a covid thing)!
I have been going to the General Muir since they have opened. They always have a lovely staff. I have supported them all throughout the pandemic. In the last month, I have gone numerous times for dinner and the dinner portions have gotten beyond ridiculous. I experienced this with the brisket and most recently the roasted chicken. My roasted chicken literally had 3 bite size pieces covered with vegetables. Same with the brisket the week before. I have no problem paying $24.00 for the brisket but it was minimal. I so enjoy the restaurant but if the portions at dinner don't go back to normal, I unfortauly can't support the restaurant.
We ordered the French toast, vegetarian Ruben and French fries. The French toast has zero flavor, it’s just extremely sweet. They put the syrup/sauce on top so you can’t adjust how sweet. Did not finish the French toast. The Ruben was good... the beets were cut pretty thick, but it was still ok. I added mustard to make delicious. French fries were good and fresh.
TGM always delivers. I love their set menus for holidays. Their burgers are the best in town, and brunch is delicious and fun, too.
The General Muir has delicious simple food, complimented with amazing coffee. Their adaptation of Covid procedures, gives you the confidence to dine in a safe and relaxed environment! Their take out service and food is excellent.
We loved our bartender for Saturday brunch. She was a delight. Burger was on point! Drinks were good. Poutine is so good!!
Always great food and great service................
On a long drive it was nice to stop have a great Reuben, pickles and soup! Good deli food. Highly recommend!
Food and service both good. It was a quiet Sunday night.
10/10 recommend The General Muir and will dine there again.
Best bagels in Atlanta! Very serious about COVID prevention. Tables were very spread out. The food was great and can’t wait to go back! Highly recommend for brunch
Safe, clean and delicious. Wonderful meal and I’m so grateful for the amazing safety protocols.
Always a favorite of ours for years! The menu is classics done extremely well, with a little something for everyone! Brunch is our favorite here but we are yet to be disappointed with anything we’ve had
One of my favorites, always! Can't go wrong with anything!
Excellent precautions for the Trump Virus. It was great food, as always. Such good service. It was so nice to get out of the house on this beautiful day.
The service was excellent. The precautions they are taking to keep their guests and staff safe is much appreciated, some of the best I’ve seen in Atlanta. Food was phenomenal as always!
I absolutely love General Muir, it is a staple in our neighborhood, but have not gone recently due to Covid concerns. I am so glad I booked this dinner as the staff were so accommodating and made our dining experience lovely and very safe! Kudos to the management and staff.
Food was great, service was great. Second time visiting in 7 days
Lunch with friends. We meet there often.
Our server and the rest of the staff, including the food was awesome!
Sunday Night Spaghetti at The General Muir is the best deal in town! Dine in or take out. Great COVID precautions (like the green and red "buoy" for service!).
Great family meal & loved sampling everything from our pastry basket to go!
Excellent food and service as usual. Even during COVID, the staff were friendly and the environment was made to feel very safe and clean - tables were well spaced apart.
This was our first time at the General Muir. This was a lovely place. The drinks at the bar were excellent. The hamburger and fries were excellent. Only suggestion for me would be add lettuce and tomato. I added lettuce but then noticed their was no tomato. I love this place and will be back to try more meals. We also went next door and purchased bread.
Great place for outdoor brunch. They had good covid precautions (menu via QR code, server only coming when block turned, social distanced, mask on unless eating etc).
The wait staff made sure to make us feel safe and the outdoor seating was heated. It was a wonderful experience during this unprecedented time.
