Pittypat's Porch Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
I had eaten at this restaurant before and it was very good. This time I was in town for a large convention and the place was in chaos it did not matter if you had a reservation for not. The hostess would disappear for 20 minutes and leave the front unattended. I had to still wait 40 minutes for a table with a reservation even thou we could see the restaurant was virtually empty. When the hostess did appear she would ignore the guests and answer the phone and well to say she was rude to the guest is an understatement she was the queen of attitude for sure. The food was very good and our waitress was excellent but, overwhelmed. I would skip this unless it is a rainy Tuesday night maybe no one would show up.
Been a while since going to a place missing the mark this far. 1st not clean. Table was sticky enough we tried not to touch it. Floor also bad. Food was medium but disappointing for $25 dinners. Cornbread burned, out of several items. I had set up the evening with my wife and friends, it was embarrassing. Lots of good choices in Atlanta. Skip this one.
I first ate here in 1967 when they opened. Love the food, salad bar, bread, and the ambience. The service is prompt and friendly. The only criticism is the sour faced little black lady who took us to our table. My wife looked at me and said what did we do wrong. We made a reservation and showed up on time. She is the opposite of the rest of the professional and friendly staff.
We had a great server who told us exactly what to get and he was right....fried chicken, ribs, shrimp and grits and a hurricane. Locals had warned me not to come here because it is a tourist trap but we were pleasantly surprised. Wished we could have sat outside--downstairs felt more like a cafeteria.
Found reviews on Pittypats online and thought it would be a fun place to try out while we were in the city for a volleyball tournament and because my wife loves Gone With the Wind. The place has a neat history of being a funeral home prior to becoming a restaurant in the 60's. Its pretty cool to walk in off a busy Atlanta street into what looks like an old southern plantation house. The food was good but not great. Salad bar was the highlight to me (try the pickled watermelon rine!...) We had the fried chicken and mixed grill(chicken, beef tenderloin, pork medallions over mashed potatoes) for our 2 entrees and my daughter had the standard chicken tenders and fries. We shared a peach cobbler for dessert. Being from the south myself the fried chicken was average but the price was way above average. Total bill for 2 adults and 1 child was $98 (including 2 Hurricanes from the bar). Again food was good, place is neat and your not gonna eat there often. Worth a visit if your in the area and have the budget for it.
Convenient location and within walking distance to downtown businesses & hotels. Overall food was good. Disappointed in selection on sideboard (salad bar) - very limited. No complaints on quality of food but seemed a bit overpriced. Restaurant itself (décor) could use a facelift.
Enjoyed first visit to Pitty Patties. Would like to visit again just to sit out on the porch on a nice evening. I had a reservation, was seated promptly and it was moderately busy inside. We were seated in big open seating area. My one thought - the food is excellent, service adequate and noise levels not too bad, however, why don't they use white table cloths? It would make the place even more schnazzie ala one of the restaurants along the waterfront in Savannah (historic). I did like the live piano player. That was a nice touch. And a very perfect Filet. Thanks Pitty Pattie - would recommend.
The restaurant was decorated in theme...loved the rocking chairs. Overall the food was good, although while my meat was warm, the rest of my dish was cold. Very interesting and unique food, and certainly in theme. Food and drinks were pricey though. Fun place to go once, but not sure I would go back.
This restaurant was recommended by a friend and maybe at a busier time and with a group of people it would have been more fun...it was a very quiet Sunday night and it was just my husband and I and the food wasn't that great and very small portions so I just wasn't impressed and will not be recommending it.
I had been to this restaurant annually over the past few years but it has really gone downhill. They used to have a great salad bar which made it worth the trip but the food items on the bar were far less than years past. Great ambiance but overpriced food. I will be looking for another "go to" spot in Atlanta for my yearly visit.
I made reservations for my daughters birthday. It was supposed to be a fun occasion but it turned out to be a disaster! There were 5 of us and we were seated at a square table right in the middle of people passing by. I asked if we could be moved to a round table to our left. I was told no because it was involved in a larger party that was coming in. So we were moved to the back of the restaurant in the corner like we were being punished. Things went downhill from there. I did ask again about another location and received the same excuse. When we left the restaurant approximately 2 hours later the table we had originately requested was still empty, no one had ever occupied that table. I am 70 years old have always lived in Atlanta and had always wanted to eat at your restaurant but I will never eat there again.
Great ambiance and amazing food. Our waiter was very knowledgeable both about the food and the building itself. Some of our favorite things were the pickled watermelon rind at the side board, the shrimp and grits, and the fried chicken. Everything we had was so good, and we left stuffed. My only regret is not saving room for dessert. We'll be back for sure!
Pittypat's Porch was so much fun! It is a creative themed Southern restaurant with an amazing, fun staff. Recommend reservations! We were in town for an international conference and there were several large groups that showed up without reservations and we jumped straight to the front because we had one, but everyone got themselves a table. The staff moved as quickly as possible to accommodate all guests and had amazing fun while doing it. Highly recommend just for the experience.
Diner at Pittypat's Porch was a disappointment. The interior of restaurant is old and needs repair (perhaps the attempt was to create a "rustic" atmosphere but in my opinion they failed). The service was ok but the food was ordinary, although good sized food portions. Perhaps Pittypat's Porch can be best described as an ordinary casual restaurant. Because of its history, I expected more.
Food was pricey although very delicious, you will definitely leave stuffed. Only downside to the meal was the screaming young children everywhere and the woman watching some kind of singing video (for 15 minutes) on her phone at a loud volume with no regard for those of us at surrounding tables. However, you can't fault the restaurant for her poor behavior, although the staff might have said something to her.
Good service from the energetic hostess to the helpful waitress. The music from the piano was lively and fitting for the ambiance of the restaurant. The bartender also made a good drink. The issue was the food. To flaunt quality soul food and turn out cold fish, flavorless chicken and cold sides, there is lies a problem. I would return, but ONLY for a drink at the bar prior to going to eat elsewhere.
