We used to have an exact restaurant by the same company, but it shut down in the early 2000's due to it being too close to the airport?!

While researching the Atlanta area, could not believe it when I found their website. After arriving in Atlanta and picked up our car rental, drove about 20 minutes to the 57th Fighter Group Restaurant. I had called ahead while we were driving and made reservations & we arrived around 8 pm. Received a table directly against the window for the 2 of us.

Same beer cheese soup & same identical bar, restaurant, layout, etc. Brought back bittersweet memories & really wished we lived in Atlanta to go to their brunch as we used to years ago. Had prime rib, beer cheese soup, and a salad, & drink & waitress provided excellent service.

Restaurant was busy with almost all tables taken, many with large groups.

We will definitely go again if ever in the Atlanta area!

We ate lunch today and our dishes were excellent! I had a cup of their Beer Cheese Soup. Very tasty! I also had their Reuben Sandwich. I highly recommend it for lunch. We love the music and the overall atmosphere.

8 of us went for the weekend buffet. (As in serve yourself.) Food no better than Shoney's, but 5x the price. Had to ask multiple times for empty trays to be refilled. Then they had the gall to add an 18% tip for the waiter to do nothing but bring drinks, which he was very slow at. Never again!

We've been to this restaurant several times over the past several years ... for brunch, happy hour, trivia and dinner. The quality of food and service has diminished with every visit and this last visit is, in fact, our last visit. Specific only to this most recent experience, the hamburger was almost inedible due to HUGE bits of grizzle, the fries looked appetizing at delivery but were cold almost immediately and disappointing. More than once we have sensed that certain beef items were "enhanced" with Kitchen Bouquet Browning Sauce or MSG ... definitely flavorful but artificial. They used to make decent nachos but have removed them from the menu. Prices for food and drinks are just over the moderate/reasonable level. The atmosphere is unique and cool--maybe go once for the novelty of it--but no reason to go back afterward. Neither the food nor service are compelling enough.

We went for a social event and had meatballs, quesadillas, hummus, and etc. Delicious! The drinks are worth the price. The atmosphere laid back and relaxed - Cabiny, Blast from the past, Vacation-like. We danced later in the evening. What fun!!! The DJ played all good songs. He was a crowd pleasing genius! A good mix from yesterday and today. AMAZING! I will definitely go back and recommend to friends...as a matter of fact I already started!
