Eatery with WWII-themed decor & view of the runway serving beer cheese soup & other American dishes.
Spent the time dancing and outside most of the night. Ordered fries..they were yummy shoestring fries, seasoned well and salty. I'd like to try more food. Will definitely go back to do so. I liked the dancing. Music choices were everywhere, which was kind of good. Dance floor wasn't too crowded.

Great food with a fun atmosphere! I took my family for a nice dinner and the kids loved the food and watching all the planes and jets take off and land. Our server Denice was amazing and all the food was delicious. The chef even came to confirm my child’s allergy and ensure us he would make sure we were safe! It was a great evening and we will return especially to check out some of there fun events!

A unique restaurant that has great food, great views of planes landing and taking off, plus an amazing ambiance that highlights our aviation history. Take your family, enjoy the trip through the bunker on your way to the table, enjoy all the pictures and history adorning the walls, and have a wonderful meal to top it off.

The food was awesome I loved the burger and fries. Ice cream was really a great delight with chocolate syrup on top! Also...being able to watch planes was quite entertaining.

Upscale oyster bar & cocktail lounge featuring globally inspired seafood & custom drinks.
No reservation needed for a Monday night party of two. There’s a parking deck very close to the restaurant ($7/hr). There were two ladies at the front who were all smiles and so pleasant. They even wished us a pleasant evening/dining experience. All the food was delicious! We ordered baked oysters, al la carte fresh oysters, fry bread, radicchio salad, coconut rice and the lobster roll, which is more of a slider than full size bun but still filling. Total was around $153 not including tip. Our server was Brill and he was ABSOLUTELY AMAZING. Gave a thorough description of the menu, was precise and quick with service. You can tell he very experienced and gave great table side banter throughout service. The customer service alone is reason to come back for every occasion. Every single person was so warm and genuinely courteous and it truly made our night. Amazing food, impeccable staff and breathtaking atmosphere. Thank you guys so much for 5star service and unwavering high standards. See you again soon!

Our server Taylor provided friendly and attentive service. She even helped arrange some shade for the late afternoon sun on the upper patio. Oysters were superb as expected! Snapper crudo was very nice with the fresh strawberry flavor. Coconut rice keeps me coming back again and again!

This place is absolutely fantastic! My partner and I have visited multiple times. Yesterday, we made the choice to enjoy the outdoor seating. Our main reason for coming here is the delectable Lobster Roll. We both savored the lobster roll, while I indulged in a refreshing regular mimosa and a delightful sunrise drink. The atmosphere, attentive waitstaff, and every aspect of this establishment captivated me completely. I also like that the water didn't taste like tap water, but more like filtered refreshing water.

THIS PLACE is such a vibe. It quickly turning into one of my regular spots. They always have the best seafood. Curated drinks and friendly staff with good suggestions. I highly recommend the broiled oysters, branzino, mussels and lobster roll. A 10/10 for me.

Delicious! Everything we ordered was good! I had the collar fish to try something new and it was amazing☺️. We also ordered the fry bread (yummy), coconut fried rice ( vegetarian but very umami), and salt and pepper squid (great app) and they were all delicious. Great first date spot or girls night out but also a great option to just call in and pick up when you get a craving 😋. I’ll be back!

This 1945-era institution draws locals & tourists for Southern comfort food in a homey space.
Let me start by saying all the good things you heard about Mary Mac's Tea Room are true. This place is incredible. We were greeted right away and had the best server ever. Tried the chicken livers which weren't my favorite but that's not their fault. I'm sure if you like liver, it would be great. The collards and corn bread were delicious. My shrimp and grits were fresh and tasted perfect. So many good things to try here and the location just drips with history. Highly recommend!

Saw this restaurant while watching an episode of Atlanta Eats. I really liked the atmosphere of this establishment. First let me say there's plenty of parking behind the restaurant. When you arrive it doesn't look big from the outside but it bigger than you think inside. There's plenty of rooms for seating and each room has its own individual name. The food was delicious and the service was great. When you get seated you'll notice pencils in the middle of the table alone with paper with different sections. You fill out each section per course to avoid errors. I like that concept, the food came out fast, hot and delicious. I would definitely recommend this restaurant, good vibes also a place to bring family and friends.

When you step through their doors you’re stepping back in time. So much history comes across in every room. We were immediately greeted by our waitress who explained their unique way of ordering. I couldn’t begin to explain but pay attention, we were gazing at all the historic pictures and really didn’t get it at first. There was a large party having a birthday that kept us entertained with their fancy hats and singing waiter. We had to have the chicken and fried green tomatoes. If I’m being honest the chicken was okay but the sides were amazing. It’s a total must stop when you’re in Atlanta and I’m definitely going back next time we’re in town.

This was an awesome dining experience! First you have to appreciate the deep historic legacy this place has. The food was delicious, a blend of southern soul and high dining in terms of service and presentation. The place wasn't too crowded, but as we were leaving, there were crowds flowing in. Just mentioning this to be prepared if you decide to come during a busy time.

An absolute must go. This location is a well-preserved piece of history that feels like a warm hug. The food epitomizes southern comfort and the selection is vast. Each room has a unique feel to it and each time you visit, you will learn something new. My party and I went all in and ordered appetizers, mains, and dessert. The peach cobbler was to die for! The servings are bountiful and each time I go, there are plenty leftovers to bring home. Despite being an historical southern food location, there are a number of vegetarian options on the menu. Don’t leave without trying the mac n’ cheese!

Louisiana meets Vietnam with boiled or fried seafood, plus stiff cocktails & a playful atmosphere.
My boyfriend and I came after work. That was the first time I tried raw oysters, I was surprised because they tasted really good. Even though it's not a live oyster, the taste doesn't disappoint. And also we ordered boiled snow crab. I was very happy with their service, especially with Chris. He helped and taught us how to open the snow crab shell to make it easier to enjoy. Thank you.

I had driven past this restaurant at least 50 times and never been in. It’s very cute inside and the food was incredible. I went two weeks ago and have been thinking about the Po Boy ever since. Will definitely be going back! My husband and his parents really enjoyed the seafood boil they got. Everyone loved the fried oysters!

Found this place on google maps, then reserved a table on resy. Arrived early on a Sunday and was accommodated by the wonderful attendant. Service was a fast, food was great. The server could use a bit more training, but she could’ve also been new. She was extremely nice. I had the half shrimp meal and my partner had the shrimp burger. Everything was delicious.

Been here a handful of times. I am thankful for the easy bike rack access. I love the combination of Asian and Cajun flavors. Filling portions. This time they ran out of papaya salad which is one of my favorite Thai dishes. The mixed greens were a poor substitute. The crab claw dip was heavenly. The andouille on my rice and beans was cooked too hard. The Zombie #2 was delicious. I highly recommend this special place!

We visited Bon Ton from out of town during our stay in Midtown. We started with half a dozen raw oysters, which were just what you would expect. We then had the Bon Ton bowl with the braised meat and carrots as well as the 5" Buford Hwy hot fried shrimp Po boy and this is when the food became truly unique and stood out. A fantastic blend of Vietnamese and Cajun fusion! Both dishes were served with a side of hot sauce with dried shrimp, seafood flavors, and chilis. Definitely worth a visit if you're in Atlanta!

Hilton Hotel staple serves Pacific Rim dishes in a lively space with kitschy, tropical-themed decor.
Stopped in to eat during DragonCon. The hostess stated it was reservation only but that there was a table available between reservations if we didn't mind eating and not lingering to talk. We agreed. I had the Asian salad, and their known for Mai Tai. Both were really good. My friend had the Salmon and that too was very good. The atmosphere was friendly along with the staff, even with how busy it was. Went back again and had the fried rice, and it too was really delicious. A great place to eat.

Hostess was not ready for work when we got there she was watching some show and acted as if we disturbed her. She was aggressive when she throw down the menu’s really defensive in attitude. I didn’t like it. I get it, we came 45 minutes before you closed😒😪big deal, you’re not cooking or serving. Hence why I gave you a 3* for service, if Tiffany wasn’t our server it could have been less. TIFANNY= Customer Service What an amazing individual, her product knowledge was on point, she told us about the history of the company, how the meals were prepared, she made our drink recommendation, she was just on top of things. She was legit humble and willing to take care of us. The ambiance was great, combined with the decor and the Tuesday night live band this was the place to be tonight. The meal was worth every dime. We definitely will be back!!!!

We are big Tiki bar fans! Been looking forward to this one for a while. Loved everything during the whole experience. The service, atmosphere, drinks and food were excellent. Whether you’re a tiki fan or just looking for a great date night Trader Vic’s is an institution and we will be back!

We had a trader vics in Chicago when I was a child and it closed down! My brother is obsessed with tiki stuff and came upon this restaurant! Same restaurant that was in Chicago. We ate there on Friday I had the curry vegetable and added shrimp! It was one of the best meals I've had in a very long time. Server was so so. Had my first mai tai there because they're the ones that actually came out with the drink Food is a little pricy but that's everywhere! But the atmosphere as well makes the price also worth it! There house made Peanut butter is on top We liked it so much that we booked for the next night! Better service but I would have done the scallops and not the salmon! Can't wait to come back

Fondue restaurant chain offering heated pots of cheese, chocolate or broth for dipping & cooking.
We went to the Melting Pot recently just before going to the Fox Theatre to see a show and we were very impressed with the entire evening. I was not sure about the whole concept at first but once the four course meal began I was much more comfortable with the process. The food was great and the atmosphere was perfect. We will definitely return soon.

We visited this location for a late Valentine's Day dinner. Neither of us had been to The Melting Pot in ages. We chose to get the Bigger Night Out meal. Overall, we had a fun and tasty experience. Our server was friendly and helpful. Surprisingly, one of my favorite food items was the Caesar salad. And, their house wine and garlic seasoning was very flavorful. It is a nice spot to celebrate a special occasion.

I haven't been to The melting pot in 20 years. I took my wife or three year anniversary to the Atlanta location and it was absolutely magnificent. My server Brian was attentive to every need and I didn't have to ask for anything. The management can came by the table and introduce yourself and ask if we needed anything else for the evening. It was well worth $160 I dropped with tip on dinner.

This is a nice place to dine basically you're boiling your own food in a pot of broth. The front desk attendant Zerry escorted the table. The server didn't engage much until the end although I did hear her converse with another party. This was my first visit I was expecting a warm welcome, friendly communication and smiles the only person I encountered that seem to have great customer service which is the main reason gave a 4 was on behalf of the guy Nathan his spirit and concern to ask how is going so far? Are you enjoying your experience? Can I get anything? The last time he walked by he said I glad that you came. We need more of this kind of vibe in the field dealing with customers. Kindness , great customer service and quality products will always keep customers growing and coming back!

Eclectic bar/eatery with graffitied walls making tacos & other casual bites from around the world.
Big wings, definitely worth the price. However, they gave me bleu cheese vs ranch and it made me 😥. It just wasn't the same...

I went here with my mama and brother. I ordered the chicken strips which were dry, very crunchy and a little burnt by they did not taste completely horrible. My mother got wings sauced two different ways and thought they were pretty good. My brother got a wrap that he enjoyed. Overall, really nice staff and environment. The food was a little hit or miss but the portions were really good.

this definitely give Tulum vibes . beautiful atmosphere ! the food was great ! the wait time was 20 mins . 30 mins for a drink! 30 minutes for the appetizer 45 minutes for the food. the waitress was fairly new but apologetic. the parking attendant hunted us down to tell us to pay $20 or to be booted while the owner stared ☺️ we arrived before our reservation, the restaurant wasn’t even open , the attendant was no where to be found. he looked extremely rough. so we paid him and left .

The tacos and chicken tenders that I consumed were delicious. I dislike the gratuity policy even though my food was To-go and I was there by myself. Great Customer Service, but I think your best bet is to use CASH here so they won’t be able to overcharge your bank..
