“Great brunch - wonderful staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2014

On a rainy Sunday in June, there are fewer places more enjoyable than brunch at Old Vinings Inn. The staff were greatly welcoming, ascertaining that it was our first visit and giving us some history of the old place. The brunch menu looked good, and although they were out of our first choice (the beef hash), the chicken with biscuits and gravy was a great replacement. The cheddar grits were divine - thick and tasty. I'd recommend this brunch spot for eating with friends or family. There are a lot of post-Church diners, so although the dress code is "smart casual", on a Sunday you can expect to feel under-dressed next to the old Atlanta ladies in hats and bright colored suits. Charming and friendly place.

“Local Neighborhood Gem!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2014

Old Vinings Inn has to be marked in my book as one of the best places I've ate at while being new here to Atlanta! Customer service is ON POINT!! Made a reservation through open table, seated immediately! Greeted by the actual restaurant owner!! That was really cool yet not common! The drinks were made to perfection! The calamari appetizer is not like the average place! It comes tossed in some sort of Asian spiced sauce that brings a bit of a kick to it however not too much that would enable you to enjoy it! For the entrees we chose the traditional Shrimp & Grits along with the Southern Fried Chicken! Everything was priced pretty generously and the portion sizes were perfect! Would recommend this place to anybody who enjoys a nice traditional southern meal at an affordable price!

“Very good Southern food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2014

Great place to get some classics- grits, collard greens, etc, but they also have a few great surprises, like the lobster Mac and cheese appetizer. Omg is this good. Moderately priced $18-$30 per entree, and the server and greeter were both wonderful. The only issue I can mention is that the private party was extremely loud, and there was really no way to control the noise. Prob a great place for after work cocktails!

“Wow!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2014

Love this place for drinks after work! My coworker talked me into this and I'm glad he did! Staff is very personable and attentive, makes my specialty drink perfect! Hard to impress me, but Old Vinings Inn did a great job! I definitely recommend the fried green tomatoes and jumbo lump crab cake is a must!

“Country Southern Charm.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2014

This was a true Southern Cooking place. The food was good. We were in a hurry so we could not truly take it all in. All the food was good. The people were nice and the old rustic home gave it that nice Southern Charm. I am sure we will be back at some point.
