Always consistent, always good!

You can always rely on Greenwoods to deliver delicious meals - great for eating on-site at the restaurant or to pick up. The fried chicken and rotisserie chicken never disappoint!

This is the place I go for the best fried chicken I've ever tasted. The portions are huge. An entire half chicken fried on the spot (you have to wait 30 minutes but it's well worth the wait) then coated with a pepper honey glaze. Comes with corn bread and two veggie sides - creamed corn was a little too... More

Iconic rambling restaurant located in old converted cottage. Serves old fashioned stick to your ribs food like meat loaf, pot roast, fried chicken with a choice of 2 vegetables and terrific corn muffins. Warm, attentive service makes you feel like you are part of the family. You have to try a piece of pie. Coconut cream as a favorite. Be... More

Great restaurant for larger gatherings, we had sixteen. The food is very good southern comfort food and is reasonably priced. The portions, fried chicken are enormous, they could easily be split for two. The service is friendly, very helpful but it takes 30 for the chicken, but it's worth the wait. Family setting and loud, as it's open. Very good... More

Went here with a girlfriend in the summer as everyone rants and raves about this place. I was very disappointed, I love vegetables, so ordered a veggie plate. Everything was so salty I could barely eat it. I also ordered a dessert, raspberry pie, it was so sickening sweet, I could barely eat that as well. I was so disappointed... More

We have been eating at Greenwoods for 25 years, and the quality of food has been consistent. I rate the seafood the best in Atlanta. I have had guests from all over the country that claim the crab cakes are the best they have tasted! The pies are awesome. The sides are uncommon, but all are home made and excellent.

We were lucky to find a table for 12 on the Saturday before Christmas, especially since calling late that afternoon. Very cute place with friendly employees and large portions. Recommend the grilled grouper and the veggies but their famous fried chicken has a honey based crust, so be aware of that. Duck was good. The catfish was terrible, so avoid... More

Everything on the menu is good, and the portions are solid. My wife typically gets the fried chicken, and I typically get the vegetable plate, but that is only half the story. Without qualification, Greenwood's has the best pies in Atlanta, by a wide margin. A piece is almost a quarter of a pie and easily can be split. But... More

Whether you're already in the northern burbs of metro Atlanta, or anywhere in the city, do whatever is required to get yourself to Greenwoods. But not just for the amazingly delicious food and the comforting menu choices, it's for the whole experience....the setting, the people, and the satisfying feeling of complete culinary bliss. From the minute you walk up the... More
