We read about this bar downstairs from The Olde Pink House, in Southern Living. The ambience was exciting, soothing and jumping, all at the same time. The candlelight and the lovely furnishings and the staff were true Southern graciousness. We had a smattering of different menu items, each better than the last. Don't miss this stop on your Atlanta visit!

This is the underground tavern at the Old Pink House. This used to be an old cellar. They keep the lights very low, and we had to wait a moment for our eyes to adjust. However, the atmosphere, like the restaurant above, is fantastic. Staff is very kind and goes out of their way to help and have a conversation.... More

My husband and I visited on a Wednesday evening after trying to get in on Tuesday night around seven. It was really busy so if you don't want to wait for a bar stool or a table show up by 5:30-6 ....! Parking is on the street if you can find it close by....if you can walk , do it!... More

We went down after dining upstairs at the Olde Pink House for a nightcap. It is dark and moody but in a good way. They had a pianist and bass fiddle player performing which was enjoyable. There is a huge fireplace, a couch and some chairs to sit and hang out near the bar. You can also dine on what... More

I don't understand how this restaurant shows up As number eighteen in popularity of the trip advisor list. One of the finest dining experience we have had in a long time. The restaurant is also the pink house same menu a little more casual. I had braised pork shank collards and Mac and cheese the wife had fried pork chop... More

I have been spending my birthday at The Planters Tavern for the past five years. We just love this place. Upstairs at the Olde Pink House is too stuffy for us but Planters Tavern is much more our style. Dark, low ceilings, two fireplaces. Excellent bartenders, generous drinks and the same food at upstairs. You can't go wrong. We have... More

Planters Tavern shares a menu with the Olde Pink House, which is upstairs. Planters is in the basement and it is an awesome atmosphere. There are no reservations- so get there right at 5pm when they open. Our first attempt was unsuccessful despite being the 2nd group in line. The manager guy was very rude to us and told us... More

Great buffet if before 3pm with many southern style dishes. Don't pass up the 'pirates' tour when finished with your meal.

Worth checking out if only for a drink. Atmosphere is awesome. Food is very good. It is rather small and fills up early.
