“Great southern food in a very nice environment”
Reviewed July 26, 2012

White table cloths and nice decor provide a nice than normal backdrop to food options that warm the stomach and please the palate. Nice for business or couples. Have been there several times and will again.

“Wonderful food & dependable service”
Reviewed July 22, 2012 via mobile

Although the location is not quite as convenient as some of our other favorites, we never pass up an opportunity to join friends at Hattie's. The service is excellent, the food is wonderful, and the staff make every effort to ensure your experience is a good one. I highly recommend the fried green tomatoes, and the lettuce wedge is also a great choice. Or,as one of the men at our table remarked, "you can't go wrong with anything wrapped in bacon.".

“Southern Cooking at Its Best”
Reviewed July 10, 2012

Hattie's Restaurant is located in Dallas' Bishop Arts District and provides diners with a high-quality "Southern-Style Dining Experience." The menu includes a variety of items traditional to "Southern Cuisine" that are difficult to find in the Dallas Area. Our "dinner for two" consisted of crab cakes, a warm blue cheese slaw, shrimp and grits, and the meat loaf and mash potatoes dinner. We "cleaned our plates" and enjoyed every bite of our dinners. Unfortunately, were too full to sample one of the delicious desserts included on the menu.

All items were beautifully plated, cooked to perfection, and certainly representative of "the best" in Southern Cuisine. Sarah, our waitress, helped with our selection of menu items and was most pleasant. She and others at Hattie's added greatly to our enjoyment of the meal and made this dinner a memorable dining experience for us.

After our dinner at Hattie's, we are looking forward to returning for a Sunday Brunch. For this and future visits to Hattie's, we will be sure to make reservations and suggest that others who wish to visit this restaurant and enjoy "Southern Cooking at Its Best" do the same.

“Upscale Southern class”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

Love the varied menu with a Southern twist. Hattie's proves you don't have to deep fry everything to offer Southern charm.
