Our group had a great time sampling each other's dishes. The fried chicken was good, cornbread, collards, salmon croquettes, and sweet tea. Parking- a little hard to find a space. Desserts were great also.

Great food, Southern Style was the word of the day. Lots of fun to try a variety of Southern style food in a traditional old fashioned tea room. Chicken was fab, as was everything!!

The food was good. Particularly the smothered chicken and cornbread. Oh and the strawberry shortcake for desert was awesome.

An Atlanta traditional that lives on. Service is impeccable. Best sweet tea in the city. Fried chicken is a must. Butter peas and hoppin John are excellent. Parking can be tough during peak lunch hours.

Food was so-so. Chicken tenders were tough. Mac and cheese and sweet potato soufflé was excellent. Our waiter was good but we overheard other waiters complaining about a couple of big parties that were coming in. Very unprofessional.

I suggest you go to their web site and see if they are open. This place is really out of the way for tourist and it gets full quickly with lines of people, however they move people in quicker than I thought. I am from Los... More

Since it is downtown, business casual would be appropriate. No ties, etc. just be yourself and enjoy.
