I am new to Atlanta and went out to dinner with my parents. The staff was super friendly and showed us " yankees" true southern hospitality. The side board gave us an opportunity to try some traditional southern dishes and the staff kept us entertained. By the end of the night I was offered a job by the manager.

I took a group of 9 to Pittypats after attending a taping of Family Feud. Needless to say I was very disappointed! The restaurant seemed dirty...especially the bathrooms! The food was ok but nothing to go back for.
I had been there years ago and the overall experience was worth a second trip...it had been several years since my first two visits. No plans to go back!!!

I wanted to return after being there 35 years ago. The salad bar was excellent and the food was kept at the correct temperature. The dinners were good but I think a little overpriced. I think the stairs were a little hard to go up and down but was not given any options. Our service was outstanding.

Just because they're the oldest restaurant in Atlanta doesn't make them the best. The sideboard that comes with the entree is a buffet. Cocktails were average. Shrimp and grits were fine but nothing special. I do wish the chef would take the tails off. Staff at reservation desk was ethusatic and friendly l.

Forty yrs since I'd been here. Fried chick/potatoes were reported by my guests to be top notch. My food only ok.
Atlanta, now being the hip hop capital of the world, should really not have anything but a museum to glorify the pre-Civil War days.

This is normally our favorite restaurant but this time it was subpar. The service wasn't that great and the food came out Luke warm instead of hot like it normally is. Maybe we just had a bad experience this time. But the food is normally excellent.

Our trip was the first in nearly 40 years. It was not as good as I remembered. The salad bar was the best thing about the restaurant. Fried chicken was great! There was an odd seasoning in the fried green tomatoes, which I normally love, but the flavor didn't appeal to me.

My family and I were highly disappointed with the restaurant. When we arrived there wasn't anyone at the hostess stand to greet us. We were seated after there was an altercation with another guest and a staff member. Once at the table we received bread that was cold and we were given water but they never asked if we wanted any other beverage. The food came in good time and our orders were correct and hot the food just wasn't good. The menu prices were too expensive for the food to not be tasty. I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone we spent almost $400.00 for a group of 10 people and we didn't have a great experience.

I thought the poor service I received on my last visit was an anomaly, but it was repeated on my recent visit. The salad bar was sad. My fried chicken was tasty, my ribs were disappointing. The side vegetables were overcooked (even for southern cooking) and their signature bread basket was nothing special. The main dining room is in a basement room and is in need of a serious refurbishment. The whole vibe I got from the restaurant was tired and dispirited. For the price, there are better choices available for your dining dollars.

Make sure you give the hostess,Miss Jean, a big hello! She is efficient and bubbly. ...warmly welcoming! Then,go to the bar and see Eric the bartender. ..worth your while! If you are lucky, ask to have Omar as your server, but I believe he is going back to school.

WE had great service - our waitress was Denise and she was very friendly and welcoming. She gave us lots of information on Atlanta and Pittypat's. The food was delicious but a bit pricey to come in on a weekly basis. Great location and the atmosphere is awesome. Thanks for discount on parking too!!

Unfortunately it was awkward as staff were extremely concerned about getting out to protests that night at 9:30pm & so if they had explained that immediately we would have not stayed. We got there at 8:30 due to traffic as we live 2 hours away. Was supposed to be a great night out to celebrate birthday/anniversary. It was expensive & rushed. Food was ok not spectacular & pecan pie completely fell apart in a million pieces. :( disappointed as I ate there 30 years ago & hoped to have a great experience. :(

I brought 4 teenagers who had never experienced true southern fare. Our waiter Hamid was very patient and knowledgable explaining some of the food, ie grits.
The portions are quite generous and the food very good. We had to take doggy bags so as to leave room for the peach cobbler. This is a must stop while in Atlanta
