I have been to the General Muir for brunch and dinner before. Every visit is wonderful. The food is delicious and the service is grand. I highly recommend the burger stack.

Have been wanting to check out their new Burger Stack since a friend told me about it. Wish I had gone sooner! This definitely rates in the top 5 burgers, almost indistinguishable from Bocado, which I consider the standard bearer. Fries were perfect. My wife had trout, which she loved. Great service, surprisingly not crowded for a Friday night. Will definitely have this on a more regular spot in the rotation!

Did not know from their website that on Sunday and Monday nights, they have 'specials' and that is ALL they serve. I would think they would state this somewhere on their website when stating that Sunday and Monday's are special menus.

We really enjoyed our dinner - the Corned Beef sandwich and the Burger Stack. However, the glasses of wine poured , for $14 each, were skimpy.

Great burger, Reuben and they have the good handcut fries
House salad was big enough to share. And the cheesecake was probably the best I've ever eaten.

This is my favorite place to eat. I come here for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
The Friday night Fried Chicken dinner was so terrific. The chicken was tender and crispy with the thinnest, crackling of a coating and perfectly seasoned. The creamed corn was so fresh and so delicious.
The service is perfect. Everyone working at TGM seems happy to be there which speaks highly of the organization.
Thanks for a great meal!

The burger was outstanding and the poutine fries kicked some butt !
A late afternoon lunch with a friend who claims the General Muir burger to be the best.... it IS the best burger I’ve ever had.... my friend didn’t steer me wrong.

We were in town for a business meeting at our corporate headquarters and wanted something local and not a chain. It was a bit of a drive from the Perimeter, but worth it. Great Reubens and loved the cheesecake.

On Sunday they serve a spaghetti and meatball dinner with homemade spaghetti from Boca Lupo. It was excellent, one of the best I’ve ever had. That’s coming from an Italian American who was born and raised in South Philly.

I took my family to TGM's Sunday Night Spaghetti Dinner for Mother's Day this past weekend and was completely blown away! I've been to TGM for lunch many times before and have loved everything I've ever tried, but this was my first time going to the Sunday dinner. 3 courses for $17(!!!), it included: a small salad, a LARGE bowl of delicious spaghetti with the most melt in your mouth meatballs I've ever come in contact with, a garlic knot, and then to finish it off you get a yummy dessert that changes every week. I haven't been this pleased with a meal in a very long time and absolutely cannot wait to go back!

Loved the food! Great place to go if you are near Emory. Ambiance is relaxed & causal. I ate in the dinning area twice & at the bar twice. Would recommend eating in the dinning area bc the bartenders were rude.

Our meal was amazing! I had the seared trout that was prepared perfectly. My friend had
the reuben (with the works) which he enjoyed (he is from NY). He was very impressed. He also had the rice pudding that was like not other he had ever eaten! Nice atmosphere and
good service. We will return.

It was a Friday night, so busy as usual. We sat outside but the heaters kept the patio comfortable. We ordered the pastrami with chopped liver sandwich and full-on reuben, both of which were outstanding as usual. The sandwiches were large enough that we only ate half of each and left with lunch for the next day. Fries were cooked well and stayed crispy even when they started cooling off. Nothing to keep us from coming back in the future to this great neighborhood gem

Been to GM several times with the last two visits being very mediocre due to poor service. To begin, they should advertise that Sundays have a limited menu with a special Spaghetti/Meatballs 3-course menu with salad and dessert. My party stayed. Not crowded but service was slow. Took over 5 minutes for our server to greet us at our table. Once our order was placed, it was very hard to flag him down for more dressing, silverware, and water, as he poured wine and had conversations at other tables. Delivered cold fries with the corned beef and had to flag down another waiter to ask our waiter to come back to our table. Not very attentive to our needs at all. The food is very delicious but bad service, for me, trumps the food, especially when there are so many great restaurants in Atlanta where one can spend money.

Still one of the best burgers in town . Even better if you have it topped with a slice of pastrami. Maybe the size of the side dishes it is shrinking a bit, Or maybe I’m just really hungry when I go there .

Wow! The Pastrami and Corned Beef are made in-house and are simply mind blowing. The best I have ever had. Better than any NYC Deli, period. Both are exceptionally well paired with the house Creature Comforts Reclaimed Rye Ale. The Poutine was really good with the Corned Beef crumbles on it. Skip the coleslaw.

We dine at General Muir from time to time and typically have an enjoyable experience. It's not one of our few favorite go-to restaurants, but it's good and generally reliable. Our most recent visit was a family/friends gathering, and we forgot that the noise level could be quite high, which unfortunately somewhat diminished this experience. The smoked trout toast was particularly tasty. The duck, however, was on the tough side, which seems to be a risk when ordering duck in general. Even if you're not a big cheesecake fan, their NY style is a standout.
