Really a neat food menu especially for foodies. Best char grilled octopus I've had in some time. The shrimp sausage was also very interesting. And the beer menu was fabulous with a mixed palette of flavor profiles. Our server was outstanding making the whole experience wonderful.

The Wrecking Bar has become a favorite. The chef uses interesting flavor combinations and I have not been disappointed yet. While you might be put off by the name of an entree please don't let that keep you from trying something. The food and service is always consistently very good. Excellent beer selection as well as wine and cocktails.

Packed on a Saturday night, but there's fast turnover at the bar. Great beer and Bourbon variety and the menu is impressive. My friends and I snacked on grilled octopus (must try!) and the fondue. It's my second time eating/drinking here and I will definitely return!

Researched and found this place had a nice selection of beers. I am not a big IPA fan so I look for places that carry a variety of beer types. We stopped by on our way back to the hotel and were not disappointed. The place was crowded, had free valet parking and we were seated promptly. I tried the... More

Atmosphere is fantastic. Underground brick/stone building. Warm atmosphere with friendly staff and friendly locals. I asked for a food recommendation and 3 of the locals at the end of the bar all said I have to get the Pastrami. Bar tender also recommended the Octopus appetizer. Of course I had both. Both were easily the best I have ever had.... More

We stopped her on a Friday night (Dec 23rd) and thankfully we were able to find seating for 5 for dinner. We enjoyed our burgers but I thought I would be different and get the Pastrami. I sampled the burger but I think I was the winner of the night with the Pastrami. It was absolutely delicious. Would definitely recommend... More

Seriously, though. We passed Wrecking Bar on the way to Little Five Points planning to stop for a nibble and a sampler. We wound up trying every beer they offered and wanted to order every food item too. We contemplated waiting to eat until our way back so we could go again! The restaurant isn't huge, but it's charming as

My husband and I spontaneously decided to stop here one early evening just to enjoy a drink at the bar because we had always wanted to check it out, but we weren't hungry as we walked through the door, so we had no intentions of ordering off the food menu. Their variety of beers is outstanding! Hands down probably the... More

All I can say after my dinner experience is that the environs of the Wrecking Bar seems out of place for the Atlanta area. The earthy ambience seems back woods. Perhaps the brainchild of John Denver, this eating establishment could be better described as something from Colorado. Still, the laidback style of the staff made it easy to get comfortable....

The food here is pretty amazing, They do a lot of really good sides and meats. The beer is really on point with a lot of variety. It would be a good place to take an out of town friend or family. Be prepared to park on the street as the parking is pretty small. This is a really enjoyable... More
