I am so happy that the upstairs dining room is available. This will hopefully help cut down on wait times for walk-ins and open more slots for reservations. The seafood omelette is a favorite along with the chicken and waffles.

Very popular restaurant with a cool vibe. Our waitress was very professional and kind. Food was good but not outstanding. Good variety of beer and wine but not huge list of mixed drink options. Small dining room so did get a bit noisy. Bright decor and lots of light.

Found the Corner Grille several years ago on a trip to see friends. Now, each time we fly into or out of Atlanta Hartsfield we plan a meal at the Corner Grille. Chef/Owner is a Hoosier by way of New Orleans and he brings all his upbringing to his twist on comfort food.

I mean...yes. Fried green tomatoes..get it. Lightly sweetened ice tea (perfect by the way) ...super good. Really like our server, she was seriously great. The space is super groovy as well. I really liked the small feel in open space.

I took my brother there for brunch. He had the shrimp and grits and ate every last morsel. I had the spinach omelet with potatoes. I give it a 3.5 because the sauteed spinach was not seasoned the potatoes could have been seasoned better as well. I will go back again but try a other dish.

The hospitality of the staff was great. The restaurant was clean, professional, kid friendly, and not too congested while we were there. They do tend to get busy very quickly, so it’s best to go early, especially on weekends. Waiting for our food seemed to take the longest. Then, waiting to checkout took just as long. However, the food was hot, fresh, and delicious. Not a bad experience.

Service was excellent. Need more non-alcoholic beverage options. Tea had a weird taste.

Starters were not very good, too much breading and lacked seasoning. Entrees were very good.

Went for a business meeting/ dinner and it was pouring down raining. Because of the great service and atmosphere we were there almost 3 hours and didn’t even know it. Hyacinth our waitress was awesome. She made great wine recommendations that we liked individually and that paired well with the meal. The calamari was delicious as well as the salmon. We weren’t going to get dessert but Hyacinth recommended the Corner Square.... OMG!!!! I almost hurt myself! It was so good!!! Everything was outstanding...Definitely will be back for a date with the hubby and maybe sit upstairs:-)

My wife and I were seated in the upstairs dining room after a long climb up rather steep stairs! During our meal, that was quite nice, a waitress carried on a long conversation with another dining party. It was rather distracting. Also, our waiter did not supply a clean fork to us after each course. When prompted, he had to give us napkin wrapped sets of silverware from an adjacent table. Do you not have a supply of clean forks on the second level?

The server, Hyacinth, was very sweet, patient and helpful. Also the hostess, Jessica (?? Can’t remember her name) was lovely. She was very professional and accommodating when we were stuck in traffic attempting to get to the location on time. She also provided insight for pushing back our reservation time when I realized I would not be able to make the schedule time. The food was excellent! Flavourful, perfectly seasoned and delicious! The ambience was quiet and with nice quiet jazz playing in the background and candles. My kind of place for a romantic dinner. To top it off the wine was wonderful!! A new favorite! We will return.

I had the blackened red snapper with tender baby broccoli over a bed of wild, herb rice! I'm not even a foodie and I just had to describe that for you. I've never been here - seems like it may be one of the places in College Park to see and be seen. Great meeting spot too, if you don't mind talking a little loud.

Our table was set up b4 we got there and our waitress (Hiacin ?) was wonderful. We decided to splurge on the appetizers and made a meal with that, along with salads, seafood gumbo and the beignets for desert. My fav appetizer was the quesadillas, along with the fried green tomatoes. The calamari, onion rings and shrimp/corn fritters were good too. Will have to try this place out for brunch/breakfast. It was a good choice for us.
