Southern Cooking

There are many places where you can purchase a fried chicken meal. But if you want a real "Southern Fried Chicken" meal ~~ this is the place! Very quaint establishment - "rustic" it is. Yes, this is southern cooking at it's best. And the deserts -- save room because they are great !

We finally decided to try Greenwood's after many years of trying most other restaurants in the historic Roswell area. If you're a fan of southern comfort food, this place is for you. I felt the prices were a bit high, but when I saw the huge portions we received, I no longer questioned the prices. The fried chicken was amazing!... More

Greenwoods is everything you'd expect from an upscale Southern eatery. I've eaten on and off here for several years and it never ceases to amaze. Now that they accept credit cards (and have for a few years) the only drawback is the parking situation. I never get a spot right around the restaurant and am always afraid I'll come out... More

Wonderful ambiance. Lots of different rooms makes you feel like you're in the dining room of a house. Love it!! The fried chicken is amazing. And huge. It's worth going just for the fantastic leftovers.

We ate at Greenwoods for dinner. I love the ambiance of Roswell, and Greenwoods is no exception. The whole experience was lovely. We ate inside, but there was a couple of patios that looked great too. My dining companion ordered shrimp and grits. It was a giant portion, but the shrimp weren't as big as I would have liked to...

I love crab cakes and order them almost anytime I see them on a menu. Though frequently disappointed the occasional rewards leave me undaunted. I have made an unscientific study of crab cakes up and down the coast of Maryland and Delaware. But I have never had more perfect crab cakes than I enjoyed at Bob Greenwood's iconic Georgia restaurant.... More

It was a nice atmosphere and a variety of American food dishes. Wait staff was very polite and good at service. Deserts were good and the prices were moderate.

Lots of meat on the chicken.The honey carrots and sweet potatoes were very good. Served us corn muffins while waiting for our meal. We could see the pies... More

I recently attended an outdoor wedding at this restaurant. It was beautiful we went across the street to the yellow house to be served from this restaurant, the food was excellent and plenty of it. Loved the fried chicken and meatloaf all southern foods. Service and atmosphere was great.
