    First time at this location and I honestly prefer Buckhead or Vinings. The noise level was really loud in doors. Food was consistent and good. I think they should offer ranch dressing for salads; beyond that no complaints. Parking is also not included and cost $9 at nearby deck for about two hours.

    Food and service were, as always, excellent. Best fried chicken I’ve ever eaten. I wish they’d take it off the menu so I would not feel like I was missing out by ordering something else.

    Our compliments and gratitude to our waitress, Dorian. Her attentiveness, candid recommendations based on comments we made to her, her warmth and humor made for a very special dinner out. She even heard discussion of our anniversary and surprised us with a treat at the end of our meal. We will come back next time we are in town- for the food and will ask to be seated at one of Dorian’s tables!

    Tip to older eaters: sit on the outside patio, which is covered (and heated in winter, fans in summer). It is too loud to sit inside and converse. Food is great, service is outstanding. I had a peach salad which was delicious. Shrimp were overdone and cold, but the staff brought me some more and took the charge off the bill. That is first-class service.
