“Good enough and quite pleasant”
Reviewed May 30, 2013

We sat outside on a beautiful Wednesday night. The porch was lovely. The food was fine: I had the grilled grouper (one of the evening's specials), which was cooked quite well. The only vegetables I could have, due to dietary restrictions, were cabbage and collard greens. The cabbage was okay, the collard greens outstanding: crisp, not overly seasoned. My husband had the duck with plum jam and enjoyed it. He enjoyed his blackeyed peas, but proclaimed the brown rice with gravy to be "instant" (meaning, the 10-minute kind). He ordered the cherry pie that he had first tried six months after his mother had died. At that time, the pie reduced him to tears because he said it tasted so much like hers. This time, the pie was okay. I had a glass of cabernet sauvignon that was quite lovely; he had a glass of merlot that he said tasted hot and acrid. So, overall, a nice anniversary supper, but not one which we need to repeat.

“disappointing”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

Our dinner was no where close to their reputation or my memory of eating there some years ago. We had wanted to treat out of town guests to southern comfort cuisine but honestly even the fried chicken was just not that great. the epic large portions of luscious pie were, frankly, flat. neither filling or crust anything special. it was a busy night so perhaps an off evening. Portions are gigantic.

“Overrated?”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

I don't know, lots of people love Greewood's. I guess i am just not one of them. Known for their southern hospitality and their fried chicken. That's about the only thing i really will eat there - and unless you are really into it, pass on the honey.

“Southern Comfort”
Reviewed April 4, 2013

We went on a Saturday night and hit things just right- the wait was only a few minutes. The seafood was great and the sides were reminiscent of the Old South, with some reduction of fat and calories. Portions were way past ample. By the end of the meal, we forced room for a three-way split of a slice of blackberry pie.

They also had a selection of great beers!

We'd considered a number of places in Roswell and this turned out to be the perfect pick. I don't live in the area and this turned out to be something special I couldn't get at home.

Nice work, Greenwood's.
