    Be sure to check out some of the daily specials - they're usually VERY good. The Highlander was featured on Diners Drive-ins and Dives from the Food Network.

    The pot stickers are ridiculously good, the music selection is awesome and the drinks are well priced. Go in the Spring and spend a night on the patio or hit up the back bar for tunes and pool.

    Great selection of beers and excellent food. I highly recommend the Pasta-rella Sticks and the Jalapeno Corn Fritters. Those two items are enough to bring my back. The decor and music is great too!

    Tuesday AYCE crab legs. Service was great, staff on top of drinks, crab etc. Only downfall, smoke... I understand, just needs more ventilation, even on the patio. Will return, great food, cold beer.

    One of Atlantas best dives. Only downside is the smoke- it's thick and choking. Food and service are great.

    Love this place. I am on a mission to try everything on the menu. So difficult to decide what to eat. The property owners are a bunch of fucktards with their parkng though. They love to boit your car

    Service was horrible! Tabitha was the server and I'm not sure if she was just having a bad day or maybe she just doesn't like black people. I will never WASTE money here again!
