One Eared Stag Ratings and Reviews
I looked up best brunch in Atlanta and saw this restaurant, so decided to try it. When we got there, we were a tad late for our reservation but no one was at the hostess stand for a good ten minutes. Once she finally arrived, it took another 5 min. to be seated. It took a while to get our beers because they ran out of clean glasses but other than those things, it was pretty good. I got the chef's breakfast which was super cool, a bunch of random small portions of meals (I think there were like 7 different small meals, each like 3 or 4 bites). Spent $75 including tip, 2 meals and 2 beers. Seems like a lot for lunch but the chef's breakfast was $25.
So delicious I want a cookbook with all the recipes! Carolina gold rice with crab, whipped chicken livers, farro and artichoke salad, green tomato gazpacho...I could go on. Great for sharing. Also love the old-style ambiance, like home ought to be. Three thumbs up for One Eared Stag!
Long story short, we ended up leaving after waiting to be served for more than 10 minutes after being passed over by multiple servers only to be served by someone who, after we expressed our frustration on our anniversary, said, "Well, what do you want me to do about it?" We ordered a drink and after another five minutes someone else came over and said that our previous server had low blood sugar and could no longer serve us. I don't doubt that and I hope they're okay, but the damage was already done and we decided to leave. Atlanta is full of outstanding restaurants with extraordinary service, so we can easily find other places to dine, but I would think that restaurants would notice this about the scene and keep their game up every second of every day. One Eared Stag lost us that evening and we probably won't ever go back. Take a hint OES, treat everyone with respect and we'll treat you the same way. Pass us by and so will we.
My friend and I dined at the one eared stag on July 26th from 8pm-9pm. Upon entering the restaurant we were greeted by the server who was very efficient in getting us to a small two person tiny table. We politely asked if we could have a bigger table and her body language and expression seemed as though she didn't like us asking to be moved to a bigger table. We like a lot of room as we planned to order wine, multiple appetizers and of course entrees. We were then greeted by our server who was very efficient and friendly. Great food. I wish that we were poured a wine sample before making a decision on our wine. Instead we were brought out a full glass of wine. Also, I was a little surprised to see a charge for kitchen staff on my ticket. In all of my worldwide dining experiences, I have never seen a restaurant charge for kitchen staffing. Overall, this is a nice restaurant with very good yet very expensive food.
Menu - no substitutions. ever.
If you try to stay away from red meat/pork this is not your place
Hot Chicken "sandwich" was ok. but that's all you get. a CONCRETE piece of toast and hot chicken on top. no side. nada.
Tons of flies inside. We killed 3.
I'll skip this place next time.
Small, quality menu which focuses on unique riffs on what could be more of the same ole, same ole - and it elevates it. Every dish exceeded expectations, and in the future, I would easily come out of my comfort zone because I know whatever landed on the table would be great.
Solid liquor selection. First rate, even. Had some challenges with a Sazarrac, but that was corrected to produce one of the better ones. Makes me wonder what the original challenge was.
Dining room is a bit loud for comfort. If your table is larger than four, you're gonna have trouble having meaningful conversation over 4' away.
All in all, a solid choice. I'd be happy to come back. Especially for lunch, as that hot chicken was otherworldly.
Good food but very bad service. The waitress was not welcoming (we arrived at 11am opening for brunch) and did not explain any aspect of the menu nor did she really seem interested in being there. Throughout the meal she was inattentive and also removed my plate before I was finished eating my food. When we asked to have the check split she tried to refuse but eventually begrudgingly did so after I insisted. I've eaten at OES a few times and this was disappointing since the food is so good.
What a wonderful place! Had a business dinner there while in town for an industry event and everyone enjoyed the well thought out menu and great drink selection. The waitstaff was very helpful in selecting dishes that would appeal to our multiple tastes. I hope to get back to One Eared Stag and Atlanta again soon to keep trying other dishes!
The food was pretty good but the service was terrible. The person greeting was seemingly having a bad day. Not a good first impression. She continually rolled her eyes at me and sighed as if in disgust when I asked to be seated in the dining room instead of the front room. The wait staff although pleasant was painfully slow. Will not be in a big rush to return.
One Eared Stag is a cute, fun neighborhood restaurant. The decor is pleasant and it has it's own personality. -There IS a one eared stag over the bar. The menu offerings are interesting and the flavors of our selections were okay, but not stellar. I would try it again if I'm in the area.
Found OES via yelp and it had good reviews. It is about 20 mins from down town in Inman Park. It's a great break from franchises. Pork loin with dumplings was very good as was the quail. Dumpster salad and beer appetizer was delicious. Server Tim was top shelf. Move the various mounts on the walls: stags, elk, kudu, spring bok. Looking forward to our next visit.
I took a few employees out, trusting other reviewers recommendations. The menu offered us lots of interesting and unusal taste treats. We loved the salads we tried, the cheese plate was amazing, and the duck egg was very savory. The special burger had me envious after our plates arrived, but everyone was very happy with their meals and their drinks.
Overall, this place is one that I will revisit. I absolutely loved the food. We went with the cheese plate and followed that with the limited-quantity fried chicken dish (family portion). The availability of family portions makes this an incredible value and the meal was delicious. The service left so much to be desired. We made an RSVP for 9pm and when we arrived, the employee experience made us feel as if we were a burden to be served by them. I hoped that feeling would fade over the course of dinner but as time neared to request the check, it was clear this experience was cemented in the evening. Despite the lackluster of enthusiasm by the team working this particular evening, I would gladly return for the great menu options. I recommend this restaurant, just have tough skin and focus on the ambiance and entrees.
