The food is great, and the service is decent with knowledgable staff. But when they are full, the only place to wait is by the bar. Well, sort of... If the bar is full, then you are left standing in the waitstaff's main thoroughfare. Frankly, 20 minutes of uncomfortable shifting and making way while waiting for a table means either... More

We loved the atmosphere in this local restaurant. Our server was very attentive and the food was delicious. All four of us thoroughly enjoyed our entrees....don't miss the peach sald.

We were a group of 5 for Sunday brunch. The restaurant apparently is an Atlanta-area institution. It's also best known on weeknights for seafood, Southern style. The selection was good, the food tasty. It's a place I'd go to every 2-4 months or so.

Always consistent in its presentation and quality of food. Still the best patio dining areas in the city, outside or in their garden room. Very good bar drinks as well, including their signature Bloody Mary.

WAHOO! A Decatur Grill review I went there late last night wanting fried chicken, which I saw on the internet at Wahoo - Decatur. I eagerly ordered it. Ths entree was nothing like fried chicken represented on the internet. It was a real waste of time and money. The chicken was what is called "airline chicken" (half breast and half... More

I have been there twice. The first time I enjoyed it more than the second. I think that was because the food is good but not exceptional, and a repeat visit reveals that. Also, the place was busier and far more noisy the second time. The waiter was very good the second time. The trout is recommended. The gazpacho not.... More

We sat in the garden room which is really nice. Each entree has a wine pairing and I like that idea. The food was very good. My only complaint is for the high price the portions were VERY small. I got the grouper which was awesome but at $26 it was really about 4 bites of fish. That was disappointing.... More

I was here a few years ago and recently returned. I had the mussels to start, which are nicely flavored with peppers and a vinegar or hoisin sauce [I forget which]. As I said in the title, the starter was good, not great. For dinner we had salmon and ravioli. Same thing, good, not great. And portions were a bit... More

This is a great spot with lots of dining options. Outdoor garden, overflowing with lady banks roses and beautiful pots and urns, and indoor ease all work well together for this lovely venue for fabulous food, great wine list, all well served.

I was in Atlanta visiting colleges with my daughter. I had a craving for good fried chicken but to my chagrin many of the top rated places in Atlanta were not close by or some only served their signature fried chicken one night a week. So instead I looked for a restaurant with good TripAdvisor ratings near Decatur, where we... More
