We were at the square on a Saturday evening for dinner, and afterwards listened to live music, walked with our 2 year old, and had ice cream. It is a great family and community gathering place.

Hideous tile, ugly lights. Nothing goes with the other. Lovely old courthouse obscured by big gazebo-like structure. Could not see band that was trying hard to entertain-they came out on steps so the few that could fit in front of the "stage" might be able to see them. Stage blocks front of courthouse AND faces the wrong way! Thought this... More

If you're in Decatur, stop by the square. It's surrounded by local spots like The Brick Shop, Squash Blossom (women's clothes and accessories), and The Square Pub. Spend an afternoon seeing the sights and getting some good eats!

A true community gathering place. Surrounded by three pubs and many other eating and drinking establishments, the historic courthouse and the site of many community festivals and events. Walk to a host of other local places or public transportation (MARTA) right underneath can take you to many other area attractions.

The Square of Decatur is the focal point of the village. It contains the gazebo where there are free concerts in the summer, the historic courthouse and of course the square with its unique water feature and statues - it holds many festivals throughout the year. Surrounding the square are dozens of eclectic shops, pubs and restaurants. The Decatur MARTA... More

This fabulous little city is riddled with restaurants and pubs. Great, safe (as best we can tell!) and a fun place to walk around, find something to eat and/or drink. So much so, that we decided to go here for our 1st year anniversary and just pick a place according to what we stumbled upon. We found a "pub" with... More

In the more than a decade that I've lived in Atlanta, I've enjoyed going to Decatur Square many times, often to meet friends for drinks or dinner at the many restaurants that surround the square. Like other reviewers have noted, parking can be an issue but it's great the MARTA station is right there as well. Of all the great... More

Lots of good restaurants, not enough parking. Good place for people watching. Some good pubs for adult beverages.

This area has many nice places to dine and drink. The environment is friendly to just walk around and look in shops then take a break for a coffee or a cocktail. the MARTA runs under the park which makes and interesting twist to an old fashion style city square.
