The occasion was Mother's Day and Graduation Day. Since we were out-of-town, we were positively surprised by the attention of the waiters and waitresses. The food was a brunch buffet with many familiar items, but also less familiar. The fish and meats were excellent. Everything was fresh and tasty. The room is large, but it was not that noisy. A small band with singer performed hits from the earlier part of the 20th century. Everyone seemed to be having a good time. More

Local motives is a really cute place that accommodated our party of 8 very well! The wait staff was very attentive and the food was fantastic! I had the orange waffles which were good. I’ll try the avocado toast next time, though! It was difficult to find any information about price or menu items online, but it was mostly reasonably priced. They also validate the valet parking, just remember to ask!! More

Great tasting food with a unique menu. Great service. The dining area could stand an update. The seats were run down and the paint job on the walls was uneven making the decor seem run down. The drop ceilings had water stains throughout showing white stains on the black painted ceiling; an eyesore. The service and taste of the food made up for the rundown dining room. I hope the restaurant repaints the walls and ceilings and replaces the armchair style seats so the decor can match the food and service. The parking was interesting. Lots of homeless and questionable individuals roaming about. Lock up your car and enjoy the meal. More

This restaurant has an amazing menu. There are plenty of options that will appease those who wish to try some local flavors such as shrimp the Belgian cream waffles, topped with fresh local berries and whipped cream, served with butter and syrup; the shrimp or the biscuits and gravy, made with homemade buttermilk biscuits, amazing flavorful homemade gravy, and topped with fresh chives. For the dinner menu, you absolutely need to order the fried chicken dinner that comes with mashed potatoes and chicken gravy. I also recommend these appetizers: Fried green tomatoes and the crab dip - both have amazing flavor and are local favorites! It is a little bit pricier than your average in-hotel restaurant, but the freshness and local flavors make it worthwhile More

I always get the burger and salad here. The patties are fresh-not frozen-which for me makes a huge difference in texture and taste. Side salad is always tasty. Service is spotty at times depending on how busy they are. It’s a hotel restaurant which to me ALWAYS means bad, super-slow service and ridiculous prices. But this one is usually pretty good and relatively quick. I go here a lot when I’m in town for work, which is often. More

Discover Downtown

Atlanta natives are hiding some secrets. Their beloved pimiento cheese, the pâté of the South, was invented in New York.[1] Can anyone prove that the first batch of fried green tomatoes was whipped up in Atlanta?[2] There are far more peanuts grown in Georgia than peaches[3], and frying was a West African innovation rather than a Southern one.[2] Traditional favorites still satisfy, but the Atlanta dining scene is enjoying more global influence than ever before. Buford Highway, which runs through the center of town, boasts 20 separate international communities.[4] As a result, you’re just as likely to find snow crab chawanmushi or mughlai paratha on the menu as shrimp and grits or fatback-fried catfish. Whatever you sink your teeth into, it will be served up with homey Southern hospitality.
