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).

Dana is one of my very favorite people in the Atlanta restaurant scene. I learned she can smile with her eyes. The entire setup for covid is like their food: simple, everything you need, delivered seamlessly, a great match for what my stomach and psyche needed. A beautiful day and the outdoor seating was marvelous. GO.

We found this was a great place to have a small group lunch during Covid. We sat outside and they were very clear about the mask rules of wearing masks when not eating, Tables were set apart, the menu was brought up using a QRL code on your phone and after you were served, the wait staff only came when requested. Smaller menu but everyone enjoyed their meal. Service was fast.

Restaurant had a very thorough procedure for CoVid and although we appreciate the restaurant wanting to be mindful and put health safety to the forefront — it was still very complex for a simple brunch experience.

Bagels were 86 and for it being a restaurant staple that should have been one item that should have more replen especially when half of the menu is bagel based dishes. Our cappuccino and drip coffee from the bar was well made!

The servers and host were very helpful and we could tell that they are a passionate hardworking team and we really appreciated their service in making us feel welcomed and accommodated. Although we forgot their names, we hope they could receive recognition for being so amazing.

Overall it was a great experience:)

We attended the Sunday spaghetti dinner last weekend and eating at the General Muir was a delight. The instructions given before dining were helpful and created an understanding of the safety precautions that TGM has put into place for COVID. The food (as always) is amazing and the spaghetti dinner is a DEAL for $18.

Our waitress was very sweet but it was this young man who was so rude to my friend and I. I am not sure if he was the bus boy but He kept coming to our table and was irritated with us for no reason.

My husband and I went to The General Muir for the first time on my birthday because I love bagels and Jewish delis and their Coffee Drink of the Month for October is Pumpkin Spice Latte which is my favorite! When we walked in we were warmly welcomed by their hostess, she was so nice and upbeat, exactly how I want to be greeted at a restaurant! We had a reservation on OpenTable so we were able to be seated right away. Before seating us she thoroughly explained their COVID-19 protocols in place to keep their guests and staff safe which I greatly appreciated, I wish all restaurants were like that! Our server, she was so nice, warmly greeted our table with 2 glasses of water and 2 napkin rolls of silverware within 1 minute of us being seated which is excellent especially by restaurant industry standards, I wish all restaurants were like that! I ordered the Pumpkin Spice Latte and the Smoked Hash which was featured on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives and I was going to order a bagel afterwards depending on how full I was. My husband ordered the Bloody Mary and the Poutine and added Pastrami and Two Eggs over easy. Our drinks arrived fairly quickly. My Pumpkin Spice Latte was very good. My husband’s Bloody Mary was very good. Our food arrived very quickly. My Smoked Hash was excellent and every ingredient was cooked perfectly. It had orange peppers instead of red peppers in it which was a nice fall touch and my favorite color is orange so it was like it was made specially for me 😉! My husband’s Poutine was excellent and every ingredient was cooked perfectly. I was so full after I finished my Smoked Hash I did not order a bagel. My husband was so full from his poutine he could only eat half of it. We asked our server for our check and she returned very quickly with it. We didn’t have to tip because a 20% service charge was added to our bill, I wish all restaurants did that! It takes out the math/guesswork and it also weeds out all the bad tippers! We’ll be back again soon!

We’ve been dining in (on the patio) and buying since they reopened and the food is always excellent. They are strict about PPE (thank you).

Many places have sketchy takeout but theirs is always excellent. I will add that French fries don’t travel well from most places...

Their blackout chocolate cake is my favorite chocolate cake. 😁

I was very disappointed when I arrived at the restaurant and was given all of the “rules”. I was told there would be a 20% service charge added to the bill and if the restaurant got busy, we would be asked to leave after an hour. Immediately at the one hour mark, a waiter came to our table of 2 and mumbled something that I assumed to be the 2 minute warning. Shortly after, we were told it was time to leave. I will never patronize this restaurant again.

Love the place. But there is a time limit (one hour) as to how long you can stay for brunch because of its popularity. This is understandable but the maitre d’ came by like 30 mins into our brunch just to let us know that the hour is almost up. And she kept looking at our table every 5 mins after that. Makes for a very uncomfortable time there.

I had a very great experience recently. This was my first time eating there since COVID.

The restaurant and its staff made our recent visit feel very safe by spacing tables, limiting interactions with other guests (reservation system) and staff (digital menus and color coded table top block to indicate when service is needed).

The food as always was excellent (we both got the roasted turkey and matzoh ball soup). The staff were excellent and were thorough with busing and sanitizing spaces for next guests. Definitely a place I will choose to dine-in again with unlike other places that I still do takeout.
