Fair restaurant, do not eat the crab cakes, I am from Md , Chesapeake Bay Area, these are the worst I have had. Bread was ok , most food was average , nothing to keep me coming back.

Was recently in Atlanta and was walking about the BuckHead section and saw a sign that Creole Cajun Cuisine. Decided to view the menu and saw that there were many treats I don't usually get to see in New Jersey. Went to dinner the following evening and had an excellent meal and experience.

We have eaten here many times. I have always been satisfied with the food, the selection, the service and the presentation. They make sure to treat you as friends in their house, coming to your table to welcome you, to check on you, and to see if there is anything more you need, and this is in addition to your... More

Loved the service and atmosphere. Most of the food was very good. I didn't love the stuffed eggplant casserole though.

In a recent get-away trip to Atlanta-Buckhead, we found this restaurant on Trip Advisor. We were looking for good cajun food and boy did we find it. We loved this place!!!! The food was SO good. It was Friday night and they had some folks singing in the piano and it was an absolute joy to see and hear.

Visited again.. and still serving great food and drinks! The inside is a little like New Orleans Square - but really worth the visit!

My former supervisor Greg brought me here with his boss and a coworker last night with the words, "don't judge it by the outside, because this restaurant is unreal". He said this because there is a laundromat next door, so your initial impression is slightly questioning. The service I received here (and the food) however, was comparable to 5 star... More

The service is outstanding and very attentive. I found the food and drink to be only ok. I ordered a Manhattan straight up. Instead of being made with a dark cherry, it had a twist of lemon. It had a different flavor than what I expected. We each had fish for an entree. I had the grouper. It was ok... More

OMG I was so excited when one of my clients told me that McKinnon's had crab claw fingers. I rushed down there the next day and had three ample portions of them. I was in my glory for I haven't had them since I was in New Oreans and these were much better. The claws are not overly breaded and... More

A long standing Atlanta staple, McKinnon's is often overlooked when thinking about an evening out. Sad, because it has a menu that makes you think you're in New Orleans and the food is very good. Couple that with friendly, attentive servers and you are in for a pleasant evening.
