One Eared Stag Ratings and Reviews

We came from NY and hoped for a great overall experience. The food was cooked perfectly and simply. The atmosphere is warm and relaxed. However, the service level from the various waitstaff was not great. Our server didn't really understand our wine choice, and she didn't respond quickly to requests even though the restaurant wasn't very crowded. Another server didn't seem thrilled to get us something we asked for. It didn't seem like a crew that enjoyed working together and for each other.
In general, when food is good, it's even better when served with a real smile.

I was excited to bring my partner for an early birthday celebration to One Ear Stag. Due to the volume of the restaurant because of an event at the bar, we sat outside. While our server was nice, he wasn't present. We did not receive updates on why our entrees took as long as they did. Apps came out before the cocktails. Plus the outdoor tables are small for the shared dining experience and small plates for the restaurant. While I'd go back to the restaurant because the food is still delicious, I'd be hesitant to do so for a special occasion.

Disappointing first visit. Twenty minutes to get seated with reservation. Our food took 50 minutes to get to our table following our order placement. Two meals sat awaiting pickup at the kitchen window for 20 minutes. Meals turned out to be nothing special after all the wait and definitely not worth the price. First & last visit all in one.

Went for dinner Monday, our server wasn't very knowledgeable about the menu and seemed pre occupied and wasn't very attentive. We ordered a few apps and wound up getting the fried chicken as our entree While everything else was on-point, the fried chicken was a low point while the meat was juicy the breading wasn't very crispy.

The food was really good, but the service was quite poor. If you have a lot of time on your hands and don't mind waiting around, then it is worth it for the food. Everything we tried was delicious, and so were their specialty cocktails!

Pretty decor and low key comfortable atmosphere. The brunch was amazing. Food was so fresh and delicious, especially the fresh cake doughnuts and amazing biscuits and gravy. Our hanger steak was cooked medium rare perfectly, and the scrambled eggs were just right. The drinks were great too - loved the red neck mimosa. They have some strong sweet tea, which we would have loved to have refills of, but didn't mind either way.

My boyfriend and I recently came here for a date night and had an absolutely outstanding experience. Our waiter was incredibly helpful and provided recommendations that we ended up choosing (and loving). The Pasture Hot Chicken was our hands-down favorite, but the other three small plates we ordered were all equally delicious, too. Additionally, the portion sizes were perfect.
Even though the ambiance and menu options are very trendy, each staff member we encountered was as friendly and helpful as someone you might expect to wait on you at a mom-and-pop restaurant. I have and will continue to recommend One Eared Stag to any friends or colleagues looking for a unique dining experience.

They definitely need something to dampen the echo. One woman halfway across the restaurant ruined the first half of the meal, although I don't know if that's her fault or the restaurants. Also when I went, their draft beer lines were not working, which was a bit disappointing. Overall the food was great and the service was exceptional.

The food varied from great (the burger is a must-try) to just meh (the Chef's special: the reason I chose that restaurant was not that great) and the service was extremely slow. Our waiter was nice and knowledgable, but only showed up about once every 15 minutes.
The end experience was just okay.

The Meatstick is a delicious burger that is not listed on the menu so you have to ask for it! Two grilled patties with cheese, onions and home made pickles. Ketchup I think is home made too. The special thing about this burger is the meat has beef and ground bacon... need less to say, Wooza!

I was taking my friend out for her birthday and she wanted a burger. I googled best burger in Atlanta and this was in the top 10 and open on a Sunday night. We both agreed, hands down, one of the best we had ever had. It is not on the menu but always on the menu just ask.

Food quality had great and value was appropriate until it came to service. I'm almost certain our waiter never bothered to smile, communicating to us that he would have rather been somewhere else. I understand we all have bad days here and there, but hospitality is driven by the ability to perform with consistent service quality despite external influences and circumstances. I was most impressed with the beer selection and the decor, top notch.

The food was very good. However, the waitstaff was not very pleasant and did not give off a welcoming demeanor.
Also, I went for brunch and ordered coffee, but the restaurant did not carry Splenda or equal. Just sugar in the raw.... Please do your customers a favor and order sugar substitutes.

This was our first visit to One Eared Stag and while we will probably go back...it's not a place we will want to visit over and over again like some places here in Atlanta.
The dumpster salad was wonderful as were our deserts. And while we both enjoyed our main courses...I will just say the menu or the server should have clarified a few things. The bronzini came out as the entire fist...head and all. So a lot of bones to pick thru. I had a perfectly cooked ribeye...which did not have the bone in...something I thought was always the case with ribeye. Again, both dishes were very very good...just would have appreciated a bit of a heads up on the difference in presentation I guess you would call it:)
Where they loose points completely is their drinks. We paid $12 EACH for a cocktail that was supposed to contain rum and I think tequila was the other one. It was presented in a old fashioned champagne glass and those hold perhaps 3 or 4 SIPS....I'd guess maybe 3 oz. Okay so let's try dealers choice on the coctail menu...same price you pick a "flavor profile" and let the cockatil master do their thing. We said rum and fruity...and specifically said like a Mai Tai. We recieved...at least in a rocks glass this time...rum, CRANBERRY JUICE????, and soda water with perhaps a splash of lime. Seriously???
Atlanta has the food thing right but we are noticing a lot of fails on the cocktail front and this one was huge.

Great environment and location.
Server was attentive and thorough.
Noise level was distracting; we were a table of 5 seated next to a table of 4 really loud individuals that made it difficult to have a conversation.

We learned of the One Eared Stag while watching a food network show which featured the hot chicken sandwich, and again on a separate show which featured the chefs choice breakfast. Both features were intriguing so we decided to include it as a destination during our visit to ATL. We weren't disappointed in the least, in fact, our expectations were thoroughly exceeded! Our server (Collin) was exceedingly attentive, and the chefs choice breakfast spread blew us away! It truly has to be experienced to be believed! Bravo!!!

I couldn't locate the restaurant, but the hostess gave me great directions. Many interesting items on the menu. Bre, our waitress, was knowledgeable about the menu and gave us good suggestions. Will, definitely, return to try a different dish.

Had peas, smelt, fried green tomatoes... they were all well presented but nothing stood out flavor wise... thought peas could use some brightness, smelt some crispiness and salt, tomatoes needed more of pretty sauce. Then we had the whole branzino and were wowed! Made experience. Was seasoned well and peas were crunchy, savory and just delicious!

The food was amazing. We had a pork chop and a meat stick (their version of a cheeseburger). The burger was probably the best I've ever had, yet still a burger. The pork chop was knock your socks off good. Mouth-gasmic! Even the green beans were seasoned and cooked to perfection. The staff was super friendly and even went to trouble of mixing up a special condiment for us. I will definitely be back for more.

After seeing this place pop up in several Atlanta magazines it was time to try it, and a nice restaurant to be reasonably kid friendly is a plus. We brought our 10 week old and had no problems with him sitting with us. We ordered wine and olives, solid starters, and then moved on to the hangar steak and feeling adventurous we opted for the braised lamb neck. We both agreed it was one of the best meals we'd had in Atlanta in a while, and selfishly considered not posting a review for fear that it gets overcrowded. For a high-quality farm to table meal this is a must.
The One Earrd Stag was on my must places to eat after reviews of the Meatstick. And it did not disappoint! Double meat delicious served on a soft warm bun with melted cheese and fresh homemade pickles. Highly recommend for those who are searching for the perfect burger. Big enough to share.
Don't forget to order donuts- eat them quickly before the sweet glaze hardens. These tasty treats were gone in 60 seconds.
Next visit I must try the black pepper biscuits and sausage gravy. The sausage is the best in Atlanta per my southern born mom who could not stop raving about how good it is.
Service... Happy faces, super accommodating and knowledgeable.
One Eared Stag delivered a gastronomy feast.
One Eared Stag menu continues to inspire and interest many diners including our out of town visitors from Niagara on the Lake region of Canada. A very attentive staff, great menu selection recommendations and nice visit from the chef. Definitely a place to visit over and over.
