    The grilled cheese is made with four types of melted cheese on Parmesan-crusted egg bread. It’s sturdy and oh so good. Follow up with their James Beard Award winning White Chocolate Banana Cream Pie. Read more

    Crab cakes were good but everything was soaked in butter. For a $20+ entree just expected a little more subtlety and differences in flavor. Phenomenal service though, Brian was great!

    Oh my god. Famous Veal Meatball with Fresh Pasta...winner. I loved their Corn bread a lot before entrée. Little pricy but that worth it to come back.

    The small kale salad with apple, cranberry and almond was very good for a light-ish lunch.

    Order the Organic Chicken Sandwich on Pretzel Bread. OMG its the best. Try not to OD on the corn bread before your meal...but you WILL because they are delish!

    This place rocks. You expect it to be like a Denny's diner from the outside, but that immediately goes away the second you walk in the door. Great atmosphere and wait staff. The homemeade chips with b

    Try the White Chocolate Banana Cream Pie - And James Beard award-winning too. Base is what I'd call a shortbread crust. Soooo divine!
  • Dolores H.
    Beautiful interior (and exterior) but food just a bit boring and overpriced in the way it is at most Buckhead Life owned restaurants are. They were awesome in the 90s but that was a while ago.

    The ribeye was delicious. Melt in your mouth. No steak sauce needed. We sat on stools by chefs and watched them cook.

    Brunch is only on Sunday, but they will serve you a fried egg, bacon and grits even at lunch on Saturday (Justin is great!)

    I love this place but just had a Ceviche that wasn't good. Almost no fish in it. Try something else. Specials are usually great.

    The Bloody Mary was disappointing, possibly the worst I've had anywhere. Also, pass on the 'Best Wine Cooler Ever'. I do recommend the 'Siberian White Russian' and the 'The 18th Hole Arnold Palmer'.

    For a very well-known and respected restaurant, our service today was extremely disappointing. Our server David seemed very uninterested. Asked for no tomato and received tomatoes on my sandwich.

    Maybe it's a southern thing but I've never ate at a diner where they serve hamburgers but don't have french fries. I ordered hash browns but it wasn't the same thing.

    Usually love it here. Don't have the ceviche. It's maybe 2 tiny pieces of squid and a lot of fruit and chips. Big rip off.
