Sweet Georgia’s Juke Joint is the continuation of a deep history of music, food, drink and socializing in the South. Located in the former Macy’s building in the heart of downtown Atlanta at the iconic 200 Peachtree St. address, Sweet Georgia’s Juke Joint brings to the city a place to relax while enjoying live entertainment and exceptional cuisine. A per person entertainment fee will be applied to your bill. Historically, juke joints originated in the rural outskirts of many southern towns to give African American communities a place to kick back and unwind after a long week of work. Sweet Georgia’s Juke Joint represents diverse culture, featuring music across all genres and popular hits throughout American history. An imaginative menu makes Sweet Georgia’s Juke Joint a staple in Atlanta’s downtown restaurant scene and the allure of traditional juke joints is showcased in the restaurant’s design.

    The experience started w/ an EXTREMELY rude hostess. I called to confirm my reservation and she was SO short, demeaning and unprofessional. The exchange had left me wondering if I still wanted the reservation. If I’d not been here before I would not have gone. Once there the food was good but the service was horrible. The laxidazical server we had left us speechless. Not to mention he was training someone. I HOPE his flat affect doesnt rub off. Or at least it was flat with me and my partner???

    The catfish & grits were excellent along with a side of eggs. The pineapple mimosa hit the spot to top off the meal. There was enough food to fill you up or take some home.

    Beware of the $10 music fee that will be added to your tab…… for EACH person. This would not be a problem if you had the option and knew about the fee before going there and certainly before ordering food. Additionally, I’ve been here before and never has the food been of this low caliber. Once a favorite of mine, it has been deleted from that list. Caution!!

    I enjoyed the brunch but the highlight was the live music! Regina Troupe was the entertainment this particular Sunday. I think my favorite food is the fried chicken. Seasoned great. I'll definitely be back.

    It was a quick dining experience due to reservation time but I will say the food was decent, from what I had...There was a performer singing, so that added a little pizzazz, but to fully gauge, I would have to go again...

    Had a reservation didn’t get seated til 30 min later. Paid an entertainment fee then once seated the band took a break. Then greeted by the Worst ever server. Rude. Attitude rush our order even walked away in the mist of us ordering. Then we were told they close in an hour so it’s best to get the food to go. Worst vday dinner ever. Glad we know how to have a good time regardless b/c the service there SUCKED‼️

    I was here about a year ago. Entertainment on a random day in the week and the entertainment quality was night and day. Also calling me to make me pay $20 per person deposit for the entertainment fee… then showing up and the entertainment took about three 10 minute breaks during my one meal. It made sense that the show out was less than half capacity on Valentines Day. Lackluster ambience, food was good, but wasn’t an impressive date scene. At least not anymore

    Great food selections but I was a bit disappointed in the quality. Happy to have live music but did not expect to be charged an additional $5 for that. Quite loud so it made it difficult to have conversation. Service was great!

    The service was slow, the food was ok.. I had chicken and waffles. The waffles was too doughy and could have been cooked longer. The drinks were not on point. The band and ambience was great! I would only go back for the band.. since I can't just sit and watch the band without ordering something then I want be returning.

    Was excited to go there ..... it was a one man band and he was great . Took forever to get water and then a cocktail .... at least 20 mins ... then when we asked to place an order our waitress told us if we were in a hurry ... to order off the qrc code .... food came and it was cold and mediocre. Great concept and close to all hotels in downtown but either a bad night or a bad decision for us !

    The food was amazing. Chicken and waffles and peach cobbler. I had been drinking old fashioneds up and down Peachtree all week and they had the best I’d had. A little loud in there with the band but the band itself was top notch. So if you’re looking for a quiet, dark corner for two to curl up in this might not be for you. But if you’re looking for a place with amazing food and drinks and great entertainment with a cool vibe and friendly staff I would recommend checking it out.

    We were surprised at the $5 per person fee charged for the live music, although upon looking later found it on their website. There was not the option to eat at the restaurant in an area without the music. The volume of the music was beyond loud. It was impossible to have a conversation. It was actually headache inducing!When they turned it down, we actually were able to enjoy the band. The food was good tasting overall, but there were mishaps in the cooking of the ribs. The waiter was very pleasant and worked hard to make everything right. The suggested parking at 150 Carnegie is across the street and down a hill from the restaurant. It’s not a bad walk for those who are relatively fit, however would suggest dropping off anyone who has difficulty walking in front of the restaurant and then parking.

    Loved the ambience and the vibe of the place. The bartender and waitress were super friendly and gave great service. The hostesses at the hostess station were not welcoming. One never even acknowledged our presence. The other one who appeared to be in charge was very matter of fact about everything and offered no friendly smile which would have made the experience much better. The food was hit or miss. Loved the bacon wrapped shrimp. The catfish was very greasy. The fried chicken had some sort of a honey glaze coating that was interesting. The collard greens were good as was the peach cobbler. The music was fun and we loved the set up. You could see the music from anywhere in the dining and bar area.

    We had a reservation for 5:00pm. We arrived at 4:45. It was 13 degrees outside. The manager would not let us come in out of the cold to wait. A coworker asked her if we could come in and she said no. She did not come open the door until almost 5:10. Our waiter was very polite, and did a good job. The food was really good, but I will not eat there again.

    It took 40 minutes for both of my reserved parties to be sat. We arrived to our reservation early to ensure that we could at least be sat in proximity to each other. The first table was sat on time and we were told the next one would be set right after, but after waiting 30 minutes, the host said our table have been ready and they were just waiting for us. Please keep in mind that our party had sitting in the waiting area since 15 minutes prior to our reserve time and remain in the waiting area, sitting on a bench directly in front of the hostess. Finally, after having to ask, what happened to our table, the second half of our party was being seated. We were told that the other half was sat in VIP, and we couldn’t be sad over there because they were other parties that had reservations. After a lot of back-and-forth and having to get the manager involved, we were able to get all of our party set together. The part that irritated me the most was that we stayed until closing, and all of these so-called reserved tables that they claim taken were never filled. Not a single person showed up to sit any of them! My group had an amazing time because we have a great time everywhere we go, but the service received there discouraged, the majority of our party from even ordering food. We only got drinks and listen to the music. It’s disheartening to have family members come in town from out of state just to be treated like this. It just further proves what is known about the restaurant industry in Atlanta: great vibes, horrible service!

    The food was mediocre at best. My son had chicken and waffles which he liked and I had a decent burger. The ribs were tough and none of us would recommend them again. Also, there was a $10 per person “entertainment fee” charged in addition to our meal and an 18% gratuity (for a party of 4) that we weren’t told about until we were being seated. Our waitress never smiled or had anything nice to say. Basically, she took our order and served our food with no thank you or anything.
