Classic Louisiana Cuisine

If you're looking for warm, inviting service and delicious classic Louisiana seafood, McKinnon's the place to go. Service in so many restaurants has gotten too rushed and casual. McKinnon's is traditional and respectful, the way many restaurants used to be. Looking forward to our next visit!

I have grown to truly love this restaurant. Its not new or chic but it is like a step into a time capsule for some of the best taste of french cajun/creole outside of the pelican state. I love the food but the weekend bar scene with karoke of the 40-70s is such a refreshing chain. The owner Azid and... More

You can always depend on the crew at McKinnon's to deliver the freshest and best tasting food to your table. A great place to take a first time guest or for a special event. It's one of the restaurants that you can actually hear the people you are with talk and have a good conversation. Don't miss this one.

We were in Atlanta for a business meeting and did not feel like getting the car out of the parking deck to find a place to eat so we asked at the front desk and they recommended Mckinnons Louisiana Restaurant. It was a short walk and we were pleasantly surprised with the overall experience. The staff was attentive and knowledgeable... More

We started at the bar for a few drinks before our meal. They have a piano player and "gentle" karaoke. It's very relaxing and sets the mood for dinner. They have a regular following with many guest having come for years and years. I was part of a group of five (two couples and a single). I had the soft... More

I would but my husband and I frequently eat in New Orleans, and had high expectations for this restaurant. First thing that was disappointing, was finding out of the prefix $45 menu which was not clearly advertised prior to reserving our dinner this evening. Secondly, the service was very slow, and waited nearly an hour for our entrée to arrive.... More

I live near the restaurant and have seen it several times but never tried it. Back in December 2014 I invited some friends and we went to the restaurant. Although from the outside it looks very simple, the inside is very elegant, and comfortable. We had appetizers and different plates, paired with a nice wine, and everything tasted delicious. Service... More

We went to this restaurant yesterday night Jan 11, 2015, wanted to enjoy some Louisiana Food. What a horrible mistake. The service was good but the dishes were overprized and sooo bad. I had a crab cake au gratin for $22 or more my friend had fish and my other friend took gombo with crab cake for appetizer. Seem like... More

Excellent "cajun/creole" food in upscale Buckhead location. Though I know the area very well, I somehow missed this place which I learned had been there for over 30 years! The actual location is deceiving and one could easily see how it is missed if you gravitate more towards the trendy, cosmopolitan ambiance and vibe. DO NOT be confused (though it... More

This place is high on my list of visit-again restaurants. This time, we took friends along, and enjoyed seeing them enjoy some of our most favorite dishes (the Chicken Liver appetizer, the Grouper Louisiane, Snapper Oscar etc). It was a little too warm in the dining room this time, but the live music coming from the bar area definitely distracted... More
