OMG!! We live in the surrounding neighborhood and have not visited this restaurant in a LONG time despite the fact that we frequent Atlantic Station regularly. WHAT a mistake we made! The food is FAB...you just CANNOT get Southern BBQ now in the Midtown/Metro area now that cheap pizza and Chipotle Mexican fast casual have taken over the market along with Starbucks yuppies and granola/kelp fanatic eaters who ride electric scooters and are too lazy to cook at home. Enough said...

Food and value are normally great, but service can make it break the experience. Today my companions food was too salty to eat, but our server never came back to check on us so she ended up just taking it home. My previous experiences were good, but today my server was not.

Good ole-fashion BBQ with a modern flare! Get the Mac and Cheese! Not sure if they run a special on oysters every Monday but they were $1 and my boyfriend loved them.

My drink order was wrong. Asked for a Moscow mule and got a mojito instead. We got the seafood platter that was advertised by Atlanta Eats instagram. It was good, not great. Was served a seafood salad instead of the blue crab claws that was on the menu. Didn’t live up to the hype.

We celebrated a birthday. The staff was great, the food was great. There were times where it took a minute to get a beer. But it was busy so we weren’t upset or worried about it. Overall an excellent time.

Went in for brunch with the wife, kid, and one of her friends. Our waitress was great but the food off the brunch menu wasn’t the greatest. Portion size was small for what you pay. Most of the ingredients in all our dishes were frozen. The skillet was pretty much a bed of soggy tatter-tots in what was a mix of cheese sauce and something else. The meat that was in the dish was probably leftover from a few days ago. Dry and tough and it seems they tried to save it by drowning it in bbq sauce.

This was a great find. It felt a little expensive for lunch but we definitely got our money's worth. The brisket was incredible and the smoked Mac and cheese is delicious.

The first time I attended the establishment i couldn't stop thinking about. The food, the service an staff were on a scale of 1-10 a 12. But this time the food was not as delightful the mac & cheese was greasy and the rib tips were not as tender as i remember. Overall it was tasty just not best I've ever had like my first visit was.

Food was cold and terrible. Over cooked green beans that had strings in them. Turkey I ordered seemed like it was cooked three days ago. Barbecue sauces are awful, way to sweet. Mac and cheese had a good flavor and texture but, everything on my plate was served to me cold. This is a popular place as a raw bar hopefully the oysters are better but, I do not eat oysters so I will not venture to find out. I was here with my children who wanted to take me out for my birthday so, I just politely smiled and nodded. Had I been here with anyone else I would have sent the food back and not paid for it. It was that bad!!!!!!!!!! I normally do not complain but, this place is terrible and the prices are even more terrible. Will not visit again.

Great food, great service, great location.

We had the pulled pork platters and my daughter had the vegetable platter. Every single items was delicious: pulled pork, Mac and cheese, greens, potato salad, baked beans, broccoli, green beans, corn bread, deviled eggs, and sweet tea.

The service was excellent and the location was very easy to find in Atlantic Station.
