OMG I was so excited when one of my clients told me that McKinnon's had crab claw fingers. I rushed down there the next day and had three ample portions of them. I was in my glory for I haven't had them since I was in New Oreans and these were much better. The claws are not overly breaded and... More

A long standing Atlanta staple, McKinnon's is often overlooked when thinking about an evening out. Sad, because it has a menu that makes you think you're in New Orleans and the food is very good. Couple that with friendly, attentive servers and you are in for a pleasant evening.

Owner Aziz, his family and staff offer some of the best personalized service and a standby Classic New Orleans menu- Fish is always fresh and classical prepared. Right in heart of Buckhead, easy from hotels and a good, quiet venue for memorable dining experience

Dark and dirty feel to the atmosphere. Food was sub par at best. Atlanta has lots of great restaurants don't waste money here.

I have a colleague from NYC that loves this place; wants to go there every time he comes to town. It's a solid local place; you wouldn't know it from the exterior though. It's a reasonable walk from most of the Buckhead hotels. It's not flashy but the service is excellent and the food is very tasty. They have a... More

No matter how many times you visit Aziz and his staff treat you like a first time diner. The food is always fresh and the bread pudding dessert is one of the best in the city. It's a restaurant you don't want to miss.

The food and the atmosphere were not what I expected. Don't expect to find the level of cuisine that you'd get in New Orleans. Cocktails are okay, but overpriced. I won't go back again. However, the Bartender was very pleasant. I ordered my food to go because there were only a couple of guest there and I didn't feel comfortable.... More

I was on the way back to my hotel and looking for a place to eat. I saw the sign for McKinnon's. To be honest, I almost kept going, but I really wanted some good Creole cooking. The entrance to the place looks very deceiving. The outside looked run down, but the inside was a five star restaurant. The wait... More

First time here but will definitely go back. We met another couple for dinner. Aziz (owner) treated us all like family. We felt special all evening. The service and food were impeccable. The atmosphere is romantic and quite. There was entertainment at the bar and the music was lovely. We were catching up with friends so we stayed in the... More

This place is a rare breed in the heart of Buckhead - old school. Started in 1972, it still has that old world feel, with low ceilings, a wooden bar and ambiance of history and a throwback to when both Atlanta and Buckhead were much smaller. The food is consistently fabulous. "If it ain't broke, don't fix it is what... More
