One of my favorite restaurants and visiting Atlanta had to make a stop, absolutely love the rib eye - perfectly cooked rare and the salad alone is worth the visit friendly waiter - attentive but not overbearing. The night before thanksgiving it was slow but everything was top notch - can't speak to bar or drinks but food is great... More

Hi Denise, I'm sorry to hear you didn't enjoy your dining experience. To address your concerns one at a time: all our food is fresh, never frozen and made fresh daily. Our chicken breasts are marinated for 48hours in fruit juices, soy sauce and other items; we don't offer a free birthday dessert, but if you join our e-club- we... More

Got a reservation for the same night without a problem. Fantastic salad that is worth the visit by itself. We ordered prime rib and a marinated sirloin with sides. Everything was excellent, including the service. I have been to this restaurant in Charleston, SC., Lawrenceville, GA. and now this one and all are top notch!

That was what my husband said when we got in the car after eating lunch here. Trust me, he's had lots of bad lunches because he's from Ireland. I think it had probably been 8-10 years since we had been here now I remember why. We went shortly after they opened however long ago that was. I figured how bad... More

Liked the atmosphere here but fell a little short to impress me in service and quality of food. The prices were a little high for the value. The best thing of the evening was the honey butter crossiant. Across the board average.

We met family there to celebrate a birthday. The portions are large, and everything was delicious. Service was great on a Saturday afternoon.
