Stopped for lunch. Our waitress was super nice. She explained what the lunch specials were and we went ahead and ordered. Food was awesome. Service was just as good. We will definitely be back on our next trip to Atlanta.

Very good food. Good for families too, the noise level is energetic, so children will not be a problem. Nice bar area too. Our server was wonderful. Lovely lady who knew everything about the menu. Her suggestions did not fail. My mother's veal was excellent,...More
