I'm a foodie and was just not impressed with Adams. We were offered dinner specials before drinks were discussed and our appetizer came out with the salad. I ordered the sea Bass and although the first few bites were delightful I could not eat the rest because of the richness. It was saturated in butter.

Hi Katie, We aim to please and delight with every bite, and we're very sorry for your recent experience. Sounds as though your server may need to be retrained on the proper greeting protocol. Your drink order should have been taken first, and your appetizer should have come separately from your salad. Thank you for your feedback. I will ensure... More

My wife and I booked Adam's Rest and Piano bar for our daughters rehearsal dinner and we highly recommend it not only for the quality of the food but for the price. Adam will work with you and your budget. The ambience is second to none from the paintings on the walls to the historic red brick walls. A class... More

Our visit happened at a time that would be unfair to judge a restaurant. However,I think they way a restaurant handles a catastrophe says a lot about the kind of establishment it is at the core. We are going to try them again. It really felt like a fun place.

Hi AndiT445, Thank you for your patience that evening. The kitchen hood stopped working properly so the evening did not go as planned. However, the issue has been repaired and we'd be more than happy to invite you to join us for dinner once again. Thank you for giving us another chance. More

Had dinner here for the first time on a Friday night based on an AJC article about the speakeasy down stairs. We found the service, menu, atmosphere, and the food, all to be lacking, particularly in light of the somewhat upscale pricing. We waited over 10 min to get ice water and a drink order taken, we had the fried... More

DMG383, I am sorry that you had an unpleasant dining experience. I've shared your comments with the management and the staff so we can improve our customer service and food presentation. The piano music can be loud on weekend evenings, so if you decide to join us again, there is no live piano music on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. Again,... More

I have had great meals and so-so meals here - same goes for the service. I suppose it all depends on the day of the week but overall, it isn't a bad local place.

Went with a couple of friends- the food was great- I had the encrusted filet. The atmosphere was enjoyable with the piano playing but two things made it less enjoyable. 1. It was very hot in the restaurant. Just sitting at my table I was sweating. 2. There were 3 in our party and they seated us in a huge... More

I have been to Adams several times now and each time is just another wonderful dining experience. The food is always fresh, tasty, well prepared, and reasonably priced. The bar is as great as the food and atmosphere. And, as always, the piano and piano player are awesome. Love the sounds of the 70s, 80s, and today's hits. I highly... More

What a gem! I should be thanking God everyday for having found Adam's. Consistently great food, great service, decent prices, good ambiance...who could ask for anything more? I seriously can't stay away. This has become a weekly thing for me. I always get the ribeye, whipped potatoes, vegetables, and a side of creamy Cognac mushroom sauce. The steak is always... More

My wife and I live not far from this location, but until last evening had not visited the establishment. What a surprise. Not too pricy but more on the high end.
