Recommended by friends that used to live in Atlanta, I decided to give it a try early on a Saturday evening (5:30) and there was already a 1 hour wait for a table, so reservations are recommended. I got a seat at the bar and ordered their specialty, fried chicken. It was served with garlic collard greens and mashed potatoes. I don't normally care for collards, but these were exceptionally good and the fried chicken was excellent. It appears to be a historic home converted into a restaurant which added to the 'southern' ambiance. There is a relatively limited menu, but everything I saw coming out of the kitchen, looked really good and there seemed to be a lot of 'regulars' dining that evening.
Parking is a bit of a problem. The restaurant has a very small parking lot for employees only. Customers are left to limited street parking or several private paid parking lots. I parked in a lot directly across the street and paid $10.
The only restrooms are upstairs, so if stairs are a problem for you, plan ahead. I'm only rating this as 'Very Good', but it's primarily for the parking and value (I thought it was priced a little on the high end). I would go back, but I'll probably try their other location (Vining) to see if the access is better.
