The Nest Kennesaw
The food was amazing, and the service was very good. Staff was friendly, and they were able to seat a large party, containing many children, very well, and in an area where we could feel relaxed while we ate.
Food and service were amazing!
"Nest of gnats"
While we enjoyed the setting, the food, and the service, our meal was plagued by gnats. I'm afraid we won't be returning unless the weather permits outdoor seating.
Good food good service and beer menu is extensive. Only complaint I have is the place was swarming with gnats which was annoying and took away from the experience.
Great BBQ place and/or a Great place to grab drinks with friends and eat some great comfort food!!! The half order of Nachos is amazing! I tried three tacos and was delicious! Will be regulars!
The Nest was great! Southern barbecue type food and it was delicious. I grew up in Georgia and The Nest very well represents the South.
No Brisket and not communicated until we ordered. All 6 of us came for the brisket.
Great food! Great service!
Food and service were wonderful, highly recommend!
I’ve been here more than 25 times. Worst experience so far. Beer menu had 10 tapped out stamps and then the beers we ordered had kicked. The server said she thought there were more that were tapped but didn’t know for sure and didn’t offer to find out. Very disappointing for a place I recommend and frequent. Also please work on the fly problem.
We were recommended to this restaurant by a friend and we were very pleasantly surprised. We live near by, go into downtown Kennesaw a great deal but did not know that the restaurant was here. We enjoyed it so much we came back with a group of friends.
On a very hot day we sat outside but with the mesh shading and the misting fans blowing, we did not feel the least bit hot. It was very pleasant to sit outside and enjoy a great meal.
My friend and I went here because it was late, we just got back from a 3 hour trip, and wanted some good food and we were not disappointed. Our waitress was so sweet and honestly amazing. We got the Whole Farm and 2 banana puddings and it was so good we ate it all. Overall, it was just an amazing time all together.
Always a good meal and beer selection.
Great little local eatery! Love the pulled pork tacos and pimento cheese and chicken egg rolls. I like that you can order single tacos. I’ve tried them all!
Service was slow to get drinks and refills. Wings were wonderful.
Off the Brayan path, local.
Perfect place for date night or a night with friends! We loved it. Cutest place
Authentic BBQ. Great beer selection. This is a place you should visit.
Awesome restaurant! Everything we had was very good. My wife and I shared the big bbq platter that had ribs, brisket, pulled pork and chicken wings. We consider ourselves bbq aficionados as we were happy with everything. My daughter's sandwiches didn't have a chance! We will go again..
That place was so disappointed. Even we had reservation, stuff (two girls)gave us service so rude and disrespectful. They didn't set up the table we preferred by the window, had to wait 15min and not vy the window,next to toilet. Finally set the table but they never came to get an order even they didn't give us glasses of water. The place wasn't busy at all, but food came o the table too late, waitress was bad behaviour.We will never be back for sure.
All was great except it was too loud in the room to the right .
Great environment and great food. I was pleasantly surprised!
I enjoyed my meal at The Nest the queso and smoked wings are things you must try!
Ribs were dry... brisket was very fatty... deviled eggs were rubbery. Service was lackluster... noted “Special Occasion” in the reservation, and there was no recognition. Date night lasted 45 minutes. Dinner out before appetizers were barely started. Very disappointing.
The pork rinds are awesome!
Simply the best brisket and ribs. Good every single time!
The Nest is a quaint little restaurant. It was too cold for outside seating but I am sure that would be a great choice if it was warmer. Food was really good. We will definitely go back!
It is a great location for Happy Hour after work. The beer selection is excellent and the appetizers are good, especially the pork rinds. However, this trip was for lunch and I was not impressed. I had the pulled pork plate and tried all the barbeque sauces. None of them had much flavor.
Found this for a last minute get together and couldn’t have been better! Will definitely go back just to eat and hang out. Especially in warmer months great outdoor seating and in general one of my ATL favorites!!
It was okay. I was hoping for delicious!
The seating was cramped and the chairs very uncomfortable!! Was surprised that a casual BBQ place has $9 glasses of wine (all varieties)
Probably won't go back.
Food was great. Service was good. Restaurant was more casual than I thought it would be. This is a barbecue place with paper towels and metal plates. Good beer selection. Outside bar seating area looks like it would be fun but raining when we were there.
I was very happy that their handicap parking wasn't something thrown together like many restaurants in the area. I loved the ramp up and the option to take steps if needed. The deck was convenient and very well maintained. I didn't explore the inside of the restaurant, and I should have but that will be for another day. They were very quick with a response to my DM via Yelp and that to me shows attention to detail.
I guess my only gripe were the multiple dogs hanging out with their owner's. I understand its outside on the deck, but its a restaurant, not a kennel or your friend's house. If they aren't Service Animals, then leave them at home.
I will definitely be back but it will probably be at a different time.
Visiting the area - took a chance at this "neighborhood" place - SO GLAD we did - Pulled pork was EXEPTIONAL - MOIST - TENDER - FLAVORFILL - Fries - great taste - Baked Beans - very good flavor - had 2 beers - Milk Stout Loved it - - Choco Pumpkin good choice also - Sat on the porch - nice evening - will make sure to stop here on the next visit to the area
We took a 6 year old. He was handed a coloring page with a hashtag and he thought he was so cool being on the internet.
Then we ate and realized we were wasting all this important time in our lives on bad bbq. We know now how to measure.
The beer selection is great as well.
We will be back.
last August 2017 while we were there that they cud not get quality salmons special for us. Naturally we were disappointed but fish tacos were good. Others were mild spicy. Our server was awesome friendly.
I did ask first before to come over to eat cuz of dog friendly that I am afraid of dogs & rather not eat with dogs. They told me that dogs were required to be leashed all the time & outside on the porch only, no inside restaurant.
After we ordered our foods, a few minutes ago, we saw a male bringing his dog inside toward the kitchen. We were planning to tell our server to cancel the order immediately cuz we thought no dogs inside the restaurant but he left with his dog out immediately. We told our servers abt that guy with dog inside. She did tell him that he was not supposed to bring his dog inside cuz he wanted to show his cute dog inside the kitchen. that was not santisaty to have dogs in the kitchen. We appreciated our server to tell him not suppose to bring the dog inside. we enjoyed our very sweet server.
We had 2 salads with honey mustard dressing on sides, 1 fish tacos & 1 pull bbq brisket without bbq sauce due to hot spicy bbq sauces.
nice old 2 houses together with open middle porch. old fireplace.
We will not go back as we do not eat hot spicy foods.
We had a party of 10 and the staff and our server treated us welcome guests rather than a burden, which large parties can be. Easy to order and food was served fast and hot. Best of all...BBQ was terrific! Looking forward to going back.
Decent selection of beers on tap, but ran out of 1st beer selection (Dry County Namesake). Shrimp taco special was bland, and the "pico" was very watery and without flavor. Ribs were way over cooked and very very dry. Sauces (especially spicy) were good. Gouda Mac & Cheese was luke warm. The smoked chicken queso was really good and the best part of the meal.
Really good food! However, I will likely not go back until they do something about the flys. I have eaten both inside and outside and they are bad no matter where you eat at this place.
The food really tasted good. Pork rinds were fantastic! One exception: the youngster with us ordered a grilled cheese that wasn't really a grilled cheese. It was two pieces of Texas toast onto which the cheese sauce they use for the mac-n-cheese had been spread. Mushy and icky. My guests got huge portions of the brisket, but I got two small slices of chicken on Texas toast for a "sandwich."
The server was pleasant but it seems like she wasn't really into serving us and the environment was dirty. Condiment bottles on the table looked like they'd never been wiped off. Squished dead fly on top of one. Roll of paper towels had countless dirty finger prints on the top from other patrons as did the beer menu. Maybe there are better ways of providing these so that customers don't have to touch something dirty. This is the third (and last) time I've been here, and every time my first choice beer is not available. And, the beer is just too expensive.
Was considering making the Monday night trivia a regular plan with friends once it starts up, but no more.
