Greenwoods has been a family favorite for years. Huge portions, great atmosphere and fabulous pies keep us coming back.

Went here for lunch today and was very pleased with the good. At first I thought the prices were a bit high, but the portions they give you are massive. Take some home! I had the shrimp and grits, my wife had 4 vegetable sides. All were delicious and the shrimp was very fresh. Took a sampling of 3 pies... More

I put this restaurant on my bucket list of places to eat in North Atlanta over 18 months ago and this past Saturday while on a trip to Woodstock we took a detour to the Roswell area. I remembered the restaurant and its name and looked it up on Tripadvisor again to verify it was still a top rated restaurant.... More

Went there with family for dinner. They brought out plates of corn muffins - don't eat too many because when the meal comes out you will get stuffed quick. I had the meatloaf with broccoli casserole and coleslaw. Nothing to complain about. Food was fresh and portions are plentiful!

I'm Southern born and raised and this is great. No, they don't cook their vegetables to death but that's a good thing. Had catfish which was as good as I've ever had, super collard greens and great sweet potatoes. The corn muffins were great as well. If you want a real no holds barred Southern experience, this is it. I... More

After all the glowing reviews we decided to give this place a try since it's right down the street. Let me just say we were FAR from impressed. I grew up in south GA so I am familiar with "southern food" and this isn't it. FOOD: The green beans and black eyed peas were crunchy...they need to be cooked much... More

From the exterior ( and the grounds ), Greenwood's says "Crunchy" ! Once inside, the menu offers rather plain "Southern" cooking...but wonderful cooking it is. The imagination and chef;s talent of the daily specials more than balance the regularity of the daily menu. Wow, what flavors ! Who would have expected great crawfish cakes ( or lump crabmeat cakes )... More

This is our favorite all around restaurant in an area that is blessed with great restaurants. The fried chicken, pork chops, and side dishes are wonderfully fabulous. Also if you see seafood on the specials board, go for it. The grilled grouper, sea bass, and crab cakes are always fresh and the taste great, even compared to restaurants on the... More

I've never been a fan of Southern cooking, but Greenwood's changes my attitude no matter what I order. The plum duck is my favorite dish. Can't get it anywhere else in the area and the price is very fair. But other dishes are also excellent. Best fried chicken in town, plus trout, catfish, and daily specials. The food is abundant...

Love this place. We've been dining here for over 20 years. Great fried chicken, crabcakes, fresh veggies, trout with lemon chive butter sauce. Really, everything is great. Friendly waitresses. This is where we take guests for quality southern dishes. And don't forget the coconut cream pie.
