Amazing service from the moment we walked in. Our server Pablo was OUTSTANDING. The food was beyond delicious. The chicken is a must have; perfectly cooked and seasoned. Will def be back when we’re in ATL again.

Food and service excellent, but despite having made reservations 48 hrs in advance for a "standard/inside" table, our table wasn't ready when we arrived. We ended up sitting on the patio - where the heaters beat down on us like the midday Miami sun. When we asked to have them turned down, the only accommodation was for them to raise the plastic curtains to the street. It was less than ideal - half my head/face was baking the entire meal. Again, food and service helped make up for the crappy table, but we won't be back anytime soon.

Exceptional server attention. Such a pleasure to dine with a professional and friendly, knowledgeable staff. Salmon cake special was absolutely delicious! Pear salad was perfection! Shrimp and grits was as delicious as ever. Such an energetic, romantic restaurant that stands the test of time magnificently. Thank you Michael for introducing yourself to us as the Manager. We appreciate all of you.

Truly fantastic and thoughtful service! Pablo (if I recall his name correctly) provided one of my most memorable service experiences to date!! And the food is also unmatched; Shrimp & Grits, Fried Chicken, Waffles, Fried Green tomatoes are a few of our favs!! Not to mention the biscuits and apple butter!! THANK YOU for consistently being the best!!!

Great customer service + great food + great company = good time. The restaurant closely followed social distancing (empty table between parties, wait staff wearing masks, even claimed to sanitize the pens, accepted card payments only) and health standards (sanitizer station on empty tables). Enjoyed being out and felt safe. Fried chicken with greens and mashed potatoes=4.5 stars. Chicken and waffles=4.5 stars. And fried green tomatoes=5 stars.

A very odd experience at a Midtown tradition. Very loud or even louder than usual .. Covid seating arrangement creates all 6 tops which makes for a strange physical experience (seems like this could be more thought out).
Wait staff did not listen carefully to orders and we had a mismatch .. which was fixed. But the service seemed begrudgingly offered after the mix up.
Starters were good .. salads overdressed and portions on the mains are considerably smaller. But it tasted ok not great . Desserts were underwhelming... I’d pass on them.

Some things can’t be helped with Covid but keeping your food quality should be a top concern while trying to make it through tough times.

My only suggestion is to make authentic southern cornbread that does not contain sugar since it is supposed to be a Southern cuisine restaurant. And add small jars of a southern jelly such as Mayhaw would make the biscuits even better. You could sell the jelly as well!! Mho
Otherwise lunch was excellent!

The food was wonderful! The person (manager with the blonde hair) that seated us sounded very passive aggressive about the closing time, although we were aware prior to walking in. Andy was our server and he was very nice and accommodating!
