Pittypat's Porch Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
We came to celebrate a late father's day with our family, as well as my husband's birthday, and we had a wonderful time. The server treated us like his own family, anticipated our needs, checked on us regularly, and had a wonderful attitude. The food was delicious (although not friendly on the waist)! The live music was excellent. and Their Moonshine Fruit Punch cocktail will knock your socks off!
To rsvp was best. The hostess and wait staff were great. Johnetta (sp) was phenomenal!! However, the online menu prices and the actual restaurant menu prices aren't the same. Paying $9 for soggy peach cobbler and no firm crust and a tablespoon of ice cream is unacceptable. Peaches and crust are a must. Price online was close to 6. Please fix that. Also there were fruit flies around the salad bar. Even then, the chicken salad and watermelon rinds were devine!
The crawfish dip was awful-there may have been 4 crawfish in the whole dish...and it was barely warm. The sidebar was very good--especially the watermelon rind pickles and Hoppin John salad. My husband had the fried chicken, which he loved. My shrimp and grits was exceptional...I'd go back for either one.
Initially, our waiter was great-friendly and attentive. We never saw him after our entrees were delivered. After waiting 40 minutes for our check, we asked another waiter for some help.
Excellent service before and after dinner. Your people were very helpful, courteous and accommodating to our needs. Food was excellent! Ambiance made everything special. My grandmother loved the old railroad/farm artifacts. Reminded her of her youth. My mother, whose birthday we were celebrating, enjoyed the live music and the Shrimp & Grits. Thank you for making this occasion special!
Celebrating a Special Occasion - Love the fact you can make reservations. Great Welcome, Service, and Food. The assortments of Bread Baskets were good however not enough for a big party, Waiter was accommodating with requests. Love the Salad Board. Great place for Southern Food. The restaurant provides discount parking Vouchers - Great incentive to visit this Hidden Gem!
We were disappointed. I had visited Pitty Pat's many years ago and enjoyed it. Wanted to go back to pleasant memories. This was not to be. The food was just OK. The surroundings have, regrettably, become somewhat shabby. Ceiling tiles needed replacing, banister needed painting, etc. Waitress was great, as was the company at the next table. Other than that it was quite forgettable.
We were in Atlanta for a convention and had made reservation six weeks in advance. The staff was overwhelmed by several large parties from the convention. We had to wait over a hour for our table. The atmosphere is unique and made the wait tolerable. The food was excellent, the drinks tasty. We want to come back sometime when hopefully things might be calmer.
I cannot say enough good things about the service at this Restaurant. It was a ridiculously crazy busy Saturday. Staff maintained sense of humor, attention to customers, and expected level of service. Our waiter Joe had a personality that added to the experience. He was fantastic! Tonia the receptionist was warm, funny, and greeted me by name at the end of my meal. Impressive! The food was good and the piano player was such a warm and talented person. It's worth the wait, worth the drive, worth the price!
Drinks and rocking chairs were the perfect start - atmosphere was a little loud at the table area - Serivce was slower than average likely due to how packed it was - the food was incredible and we loved our experience overall
We dined with you 46 years ago with my parents. Brought our son, daughter in law, grandson to
Show them where we had good food in Atlanta years ago. Looks the same inside and still great
Good. Hope to dine again with you before we leave Atlanta.
Great homecoming back to you.
We really enjoyed the exceptional service and good food, but felt it was priced too high compared to similar restaurants. The drinks were also pretty high and we had to pay for parking as well. Probably wouldn't return due to cost.
We waited for the restaurant to open. It does not open until 5 pm and we were going to get back on the road going home right after dinner. The restaurant is great and I am glad we waited. The food is great! The side board has a variety of items to fill you up before any entree is brought to your table. The chicken parts are huge! Everything is plentiful and you will probably have to take home a doggie bag.
Got seated right away a 7pm on a Saturday. Great service, prompt, friendly. Good for tourists that want to try "southern specialties"! Salad bar had many extras like pickled watermelon rind, whole okra, balsamic tomatoes, n sweet potato salad...
Fried chicken breast was dry, but wings were great (I'd guess dark meat would be good too). Ribs fell off the bone and crab cake was excellent.
I'd go again if I was with new tourists.
The most amazing thing about our dinner was the salad side-bar....very unique offerings, from chickpea salad, homemade chicken salad, pickled beets, pickled watermelon rind (and yes, that was good too), and Cajun macaroni salad. Excellent evening!
Good food, but bad service. Manager gave our table to her friends and seated us 45 minutes after our reservation. We had a large group, the waiter suggested an app platter for the table but didn't mention the $104 price! We would have been better off getting several small plates.We saw that happen at several tables around us, so beware.
The food was really good. Be sure to have the hopping john at the salad bar. It is beyond delicious. Walter was our waiter. The service was excellent. He took great care of us. Be sure to visit the next time you're in the ATL.
I was really disappointed with this restaurant overall. We came here as out of town guests, and I was immediately drawn in by the "Gone with the Wind" theme. The restaurant was anything but. Aside from a couple posters and a painting or two, you would have never known that the restaurant was supposed to go along with a theme. The food was mediocre and way over priced, and cleanliness and decoration left much to be desired. The staff, however, was very friendly and was the only bright spot in this experience. I came in very hopeful and excited, but left very disappointed and $100 lighter (for only 2 adults and a 6 year old).
Clearly a restaurant past it's useable service life. Crappy decor with little effort to tie the film to the decor. No table cloths, paper napkins and I'm spending $100!! Food was subpar the place was noise from overhead Muzak. A bad value. They could fix most of it and have a better experience
