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.

Delicious brunch - we had the smoked hash, Reuben, and matzoh ball soup. The hot chocolate was practically a dessert.

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!

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.

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.

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.
