Atlanta has many tempting options for Sunday brunch, but when it’s a downpour out you probably aren’t willing to travel too far, especially if you plan on taking Fido along. So if you’re in the North Atlanta area, The Family Dog makes sense. Although the...More

Great neighborhood tavern; waitstaff very attentive and friendly. Nice menu and beer selection. We tried the cauliflower buffalo bites and were blown away - now that's the way to eat that vegetable. Will be back next trip to ATL.

I came here for dinner with some friends and it was absolutely terrible. The table had a fairly extensive beer menu, but the menu is not reflective of what they actually stock. We ordered some beers, and the server seemed happy to oblige. Then, he...More

Some very friendly staff & one rude waitress. Live music was great and nice long bar with good seating.

This place has evolved as a restaurant and bar. Sadly after multiple reboots and even a new chef this place is still experiencing issues. We have had dinner twice now with the new menu and perhaps the execution needs more work and the staff needs...More

I think new ownership took over at least a year ago. The old team was so bad we didn't bother to try it again. Big mistake, the menu has totally changed. I am not anti red meat, but I tried the turkey burger for a...More
