Sweet Georgia's Juke Joint Ratings and Reviews
The restaurant is conveniently located and easily visible from Peachtree St. The hostess was a little cold and short when we first entered the restaurant but improved as we talked to her more. This can also be said for our waitress who turned out to be awesome. I felt that we had to joke with them and convince them that it was okay to be nice and provide good customer service. The food was well seasoned and you received large portions which were both positives.
We sat at the bar on a Sunday for brunch and football. The service was excellent. The bartenders were very attentive to our needs. The food was fine. I had shrimp with grits and my husband had an omelet.The endless mimosas were great. We just wish we knew in Georgia you can not serve alcohol before noon.
Sweet Georgia's Juke Joint was a blast. The entertainment was excellent, and certainly worth the cover charge. the Bloody Mary was excellent, and the fried chicken was delicious. One of my friends said she typically never eats the skin of the chicken, but this was a rare exception! We went for Sunday brunch. The customers were there for a good time, and a good time was had by all. I found the staff to be very nice, not necessarily experienced. But their willingness to serve superseded their experience. My recommendation to tourists or first time visitors is to remember this is a Juke Joint not a 5 Star restaurant. Once you remember that, all is well! We found the price to be very reasonable.
Fun atmosphere with live music and southern classics like fried green tomatoes and shrimp and grits. While we were there a spontaneous conga line broke out and pretty much everyone in the restaurant joined in! There were lots of groups celebrating birthdays too. It is noisy but fun. The food was good, although it was heavy fare. The waitstaff was friendly, service was pretty slow. We went for a fun night out with entertainment and good food and we enjoyed ourselves.
I really enjoyed my experience at the restaurant. The live entertainment was awesome and the food was great. The chicken was not crispy like I like, but it had great flavor and it was moist. The peach cobbler was the best and I ordered two servings of Mac & cheese. I will definitely be returning To enjoy the live music. My server was patient with me and overall a great server.
I had a decent experience here. Parking is hard to find but the location is convenient and easy to find. The food was pretty good and the service was good. The place was a little cluttered and the owner should consider updating the chairs and tables because they are a little bit raggedy. There is a $5 per person charge added to the bill for the live band.... the band was just okay.
We expected a real southern flavor,it was not there. The chicken wings were a little large and slightly undercooked Not
cooked as requested “ well cooked, crispy. For the price of an entree with only one side is a little difficult to swallow. The peach cobbler was not a cobbler at all, it was a joke. Staff was a little too busy trying to wait and clear tables at the same time. This was my first visit and to say the least I was totall disappointed. Good luck and best wishes .
The atmosphere is unique and welcoming. I loved the upbeat Jazz band. Our waiter was very attentive and had a delightful personality. I ordered the fried chicken with Mac & cheese and collard greens. Excellent meal and outstanding flavor! My husband had the chicken and waffles & he equally loved his meal. The mimosas were flowing. No complaints here, all smiles. Going back this Sunday!
Our waiter was not too friendly. There were a lot of items left behind in the kitchen that we had to tell her that we did not get. So I guess that may have agitated her. The music was great. I have been there 3 times total and this one was the worst. Overall I enjoy bringing my out of town guest there for brunch and the music. Thanks, Vicki Ryan.
The atmosphere of the restaurant was fantastic and the food was delicious. Our party had a great time catching up. Classic Southern food with a twist, all of it very tasty. Moonshine and whiskey cocktails to be had in abundance. The peach cobbler is dangerous, so save room for it. The only thing diners should be aware of is there is an up-charge of $5/person during the live music portion of the evening. I'm not sure if this goes to pay the band, or what, but it seemed odd to me. Overall, a great restaurant in the heart of the city.
