The Buffalo Pork Rinds and The Salmon dip were so delicious. Our entrees were good too, but our appetizers set the tone for sure.

The Pig and Pearl was ok. The service wasn’t stellar but it wasn’t bad either. The food was pretty good and the restaurant space was average. I’m not sure if I would go again but my mom enjoyed it

It is a good place to eat some barbecue outside in Atlantic Station, but it's not very impresive. The ambience outside is simple and probably noisy. The food was actually very good and it had a very good variety. The service was good, it could be improved since some things were forgotten, but mainly good service. We would probably go again another time that we visit Atlantic Station.

I was very impressed with the restaurant. The food was amazing. It was my daughters birthday and everyone was accommodating. We had a party of 6 but made a reservation for 4, they pulled tables and were eager to help us. The staff was kind and the food was hot and fresh. My family would defiantly go back.

We were seated and sat there for 10 minutes waiting for someone to even come over and say hello and acknowledge that we were there. We ended up leaving. No one even stopped us or tried to apologize. We were clearly not important. I couldn't rate the food, so I just gave it 1 star, because I couldn't fo forward without a rating. The restaurant was also very dark.

I took my aunt there who is in her 80’s, she ordered the brisket and really liked it. I order the chicken, with Mac n cheese and baked beans. The Mac n cheese wasn’t that great. The server was nice and even took the time to take a picture for us.

Waiter apologized for the long wait for service and everything we ordered he stated there were only 3 servers and he had 2 large tables. The wait was so long to get the ticket and leave my husband had to go up to the server and ask for the bill and stand at the desk and pay because we were ready to leave. Also the crab cake was dark/brown overly cooked. No water was brought to the table under we were half way done with our cocktails and meal. “Oh and i asked to ask for the water”. On the reservation i made In the special notes provided i added that it was my birthday. Not once did any employees mention it and my husband started to one of them that it was my birthday and we didn’t get any response. ( maybe she was the manager- older white lady with sandy gray hair). Overall i wouldn’t return and wouldn’t suggest anyone i know go there. Good business is always about the customer experience and this is not an experience i would suggest.

The food was old, microwaved, boiled to death and completely un-eatable, the drinks were not mixed correctly, and worse of all the service provided by management was insulting and demeaning to myself and my entire family. We were hurt to have chosen this restaurant for our Easter dinner particularly among other great restaurants in Atlanta. If even remotely thinking of this place, think again and run far from this place.

I have already recommended this location to so many people. The brunch i had on Easter Sunday was INCREDIBLE. I got the crab cake benedict and my husband ordered the fried chicken sandwich. Service was also great as they accomodated us moving inside due to colder weather. I will definitely be coming back soon. Thank you!

We ordered two alcoholic drinks both of which were too terrible to drink. We left full glasses on the table. We were told by management that they could add sweet and sour to try to improve the taste. We drink just enough to know that it would have made the flavor profile worse for each drink. One bad drink could happen occasionally, but two! Then we were not even offered a nonalcoholic beverage as an option. Poor service, mediocre food. The place was basically empty and will likely follow the path of its predecessors in that location.... CLOSED!

We chose to eat here based on my mother in law staying in atlantic station for work. The concept was decent, but unfortunately the food just wasn't anything to write home about. The best things we ate were the oysters(don't require cooking) and the soup of the day(random). The waitress was the best part of the experience, she was very attentive and tried to make suggestions. I ordered the trout entree that came on top of grits that were honestly hard for me to even see. Overall, there are SO many better places to eat and I highly recommend heading down the street to JCT instead of stopping here.

We will definitely try again. My first experience was great, but this recent visit was a bit less than par. The Fried green tomatoes were all batter with no tomatoes. The peel and eat shrimp were great! The Service was off to a good start, but our waiter missed checking on us the latter part of the meal. We believe it was because we came in right before the lunch rush.

It was a mix of a special occasion and a friends get together. The staff was super nice and super accommodating. We originally had a reservation for 6 but when it came down to it we ended up having 13 people at the brunch. The staff not once complained or had a shift in attitude. It was my second time there and it was better than the first. The owner was there and super amazing to work with! HIGHLY recommend!

I've loved this restaurant since I happened upon it after seeing a movie in Atlantic Station. Since then I've planned three birthday celebrations for friends and countless business meetings at The Pig & The Pearl. The food is consistently delicious, the staff is always kind and efficient, the bottomless mimosas are perfection, and their $5 cocktail menu never fails.

From tender rib tips to their fresh caesar salad, you can't go wrong with their menu...now we just need them to bring the creamed corn back! *wink*

My daddy enjoyed his Father's Day brunch their and I'm sure I'll be back sooner than later!

Went to Pig & the Pearl for Father's Day. They have a good selection of fresh oysters and have a decently varied menu of seafood and barbecue to satisfy different members of your party's tastes. With that being said, the bartender and bar in general created a lot of noise that made conversation difficult, and the bathrooms were in an absolutely deplorable condition. I would likely choose one of the many other restaurants in Atlantic Station should I ever go back.
