It's very simple and not really much to get into. The bottom line, the food here is terrible on all levels. Service isn't great either.

I love this place. It's laid back, kinda biker barish, but the food is seriously good. Who ever is in the kitchen knows their stuff. Whether it is a sandwich, beef stroganoff, a burger or the special of the night, it's closer to high end food than the place looks. Beware, there is smoking inside but there is plenty of... More

I was walking solo along the Belt Line (a must-do if you're visiting Atlanta) and with the warm night I was in the mood for a beer and something to eat. The Highlander is close by and has almost a biker bar vibe inside and casual eating outside on the patio. Today I chose to be on the patio. Part... More

I've been here many times over the years and it's consistently remained a great place to spend time with friends on a weekday or even to enjoy a drink before seeing a movie next door. On the last two visits, we enjoyed the great weather on the patio, the service was great and so was the food.

Been going here on and off for close to 20 years and I hate to say the service has just gotten lazy as hell. the food is still awesome and I have some great memories of the place, but when I wait 1 1/2 for my food and my drink glass stays empty for 20+ mins while our waitress spends... More

5 stars for what it is. Best non-Asian/non-Hispanic late night food (after 11) in Atlanta I know of and very reasonable. Suburbanites, do not be put off by appearances. The staff and clientel are above average in both sophistication and friendlyness. But they do not look like your neighbors.

Good quality ingredients, made from scratch. Only go when the weather is fine though, as inside is choking with a heavy pall of cigarettes. Outside dining is the only choice if you don't enjoy all your food seasoned with salt, pepper and burnt tobacco. That's too bad, because the place has could be much more appealing if they would kick... More

Our "go to" spot. A dive bar that serves up fried food and burgers and yet has amazing 5 star chef specials. Great mussels and pasta dishes. By far the best veggie burger in ATL. Never had a bad meal yet. Staff is ubbur friendly. Drinks are poured good and strong.
