Pittypat's Porch Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
My fiancé and I stopped here on our date night to grab some food and just check out the scenery. The staff was very nice & friendly and made us feel at home, and the food was AMAZING!! If we had the money to dine here everyday we would Lol. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to everyone I know.
Service was excellent! From the moment we walked in we felt welcomed! Our waiter was Bo and he was extremely attentive and knowledgeable about the food and the property, great history! I came here for a business dinner, but I will definitely take the hour drive to come back with my husband, it's definitely worth it!
After quite a wait they finally brought it a bread bakery. The tiny biscuits were studio hard The knife wouldn't cut thru them. Got another bakery and the biscuits just crumbled from too much shortening. The food was way overpriced for what you got. I ordered the 3 piece chicken which came with a breast, thigh & a leg. I don't eat dark meat so it was a $4 in charge for all white, a breast & 3 wings for $28. It took all I had to eat it due to being to salty. This was my first and last time.
The piano player was a bit "over the top". Lots of flourishes at the beginning and end of every song and also too loud. Conversation was difficult once the piano started. To be fair...we were in the same room as the piano and I suspect the music wasn't as intrusive farther back in the restaurant.
Our server, Scott was exceptional. Overall experience was outstanding.
I was disappointed that my table was not ready at the time I reserved. We were seated 25 minutes after the reservation time. The food was good, but pricey. Three pieces of fried chicken over $30! Really. The piano playing added to the noise level so that voices had to be raised to be heard. Pretty loud. It's nice that there is parking next to the restaurant.
My husband is working in Atlanta on the new Falcon's stadium and I came down from our home in Missouri to visit. I found Pitty Pat's Porch online before I left home, and made a reservation, I am glad I did. The place was awesome, and the food was to die for, just like my grandmother used to make. We have already recommended the place to my husband's buddies who are working down here too. Our waiter George was really nice and very knowledgeable about the history of the place. We loved it and will go back if I come down to visit again before his job is finished.
This was my first time coming here tonight, but it will not be my last!! I was very impressed. A coworker recommended this place to me, and OMG im so glad i came. The fried chicken was delicious!! Terrence, the waiter, was absolutely wonderful!!! I can not wait to come back.
We were disappointed in the quality of the food. I think it has become more of a tourist destination than tasty southern food. Or maybe we just like Tennessee southern cooking style better! :-) Our son (10) liked that it was an old house in the heart of downtown Atlanta. He loves history. The staff was friendly and attentive. It is a large restaurant which is a plus for big groups.
We actually schedule anytime in Atlanta to be at this restaurant. In 10 years has never once disappointed in food or service. Would highly recommend anybody in the Atlanta area on a visit or special occasion to stop and enjoy the unbelievable food -service and historic ambiance
A group of us went there while in Atlanta for a conference. The food was absolutely fantastic. Our waitress, Cupcake, did a great job of splitting tickets and making sure we were all well taken care of. I lost my receipt and needed a copy for business purposes and they were willing to find it and email me a copy.
The food at Pittypat's Porch was amazing. I never had classic Southern cuisine before, did not know what to expect - the fried foods were light and delicious, and there were lots of vegetarian options, too. However, the most outstanding memory of Pittypat's was the service. From the moment my group entered, we were warmly welcomed and looked after. Our hostess and servers went out of their way to meet our every need. I hope to return to Atlanta for a vacation with my family someday, and Pittypat's will be a must.
This is our 3rd trip to Pittypat's Porch, and sadly, it will be our last. The quality of the food has gone down with each visit, and our service has gotten continuously worse, too. Our appetizers (fried green tomatoes) should be standard at any Southern Restaurant, but these were very poor. Honestly they didn't taste like fried green anything and were very pale in color. The side board was blah - and really lacking in any thing that really stood out. Our entrees were OK - nothing to get excited about for the price. My son in law had the salmon with "onion rings" on top - and I promise the onion rings were a very pale color and were still very crunchy. Was their fryer not working properly Saturday night? For a dinner bill for 4 people, bill totaled over $140. We should have gone to Ruth Chris' for that much money and had a great meal. We won't be back.
Made sure to try this during our visit to Atlanta for cheer. They were open during the day for lunch, which they generally are not. It was buffet style, so maybe not the same menu that we'd expected. Food was good, good collard greens and chicken and the peach cobbler was really amazing. Only issue was that we were charged a 20% gratuity for a party of 6, during the middle of the day, it wasn't crowded, and it was a buffet. The only thing that had to happen was someone bring us drinks. Didn't expect this for a buffet.
This was our second experience.....what a COMPLETE let down from the first..I understand it was a busy night but we had early reservations. The food was HORRIBLE...no season, overcooked, and flavorless. I WAS hoping for this restaurant to be my new favorite spot...instead it was my last visit.
This was awesome! The food was delicious and there was plenty of it. The salad bar had a variety of salads, and authentic southern items such as pickled watermelon rind.
The hostess and server were extremely professional and friendly. Will certainly go back!
Went in with high expectations for a wonderful meal only to be disappointed. The service was bad and the food even worse, the entire staff had attitude. We waited over an hour for our food even though the restaurant was not very busy. Don't waste your money, you can get better fried chicken at a fast food drive through!
