    It doesn’t get much more old-school Atlanta quite like an early supper of fried chicken at The Colonnade. When we say old school, we mean it, too. They’ve been serving Atlanta for nearly 90 years. Read more

    The Colonade has been serving classic Southern food since 1927. For a great deal on a plate of Southern hospitality, head to this soulful spot before 6:30pm for the early bird menu. Read more

    For an extra good deal, hit the early bird menu before 6:30 p.m., Monday through Thursday, and join a crowd that spans toddlers to seniors, all eager for a plate of Southern hospitality. Read more

    The best yeast rolls on the planet. Plus, all the classic Southern staples done to perfection -- fried okra, collards, fried chicken, pot roast, black eyed peas, cornbread, gravy.... yum!

    The Colonnade is my culinary obsession for over a year now. Just great Southern style food like grandma used to make. Fabulous Bloody Marys! And I love all the very friendly staff. Great place!!

    Oh so good. Great value, and the chicken is out of this world. Chicken Fried Steak blew my mind also. Just go, and soak in the people and the food.

    I love this place. Old time atmosphere, great staff and, most of all, great food. Oh, and great Bloody Marys. I try to go there every Sunday

    The fried chicken is the go-to order for generations of Atlantans. When you're looking for the dining equivalent of a comfortable old friend, visit the Colonnade.

    Been eating here for 30 years. Always good. Fried chicken is the best. Bar is great. If J is working, she'll make you a great drink. Manhattan straight up is my fav.

    Need somewhere to take grandma after church? This is it. Known for decades for its "gays and grays" and the best Southern food in town. And, yes, that's a strip club across the street.

    Good Southern Food; the fried chicken is very good. The chicken fried steak was on point, not heavily breaded and delicious

    Large shrimp + fried chicken (2 breasts, 2 wings!) = split half of each with a friend for a banquet fit for a king - top it off with hod fudge cake with peppermint ice cream - this place is the height

    Great food here and at a great value. You'll see lots of Lincolns and Cadillacs in the lot for lunch and before dinner rush. All the grey-hairs eat here.
