First time at Corner Grille - saw it on Atlanta Eats and it looked interesting. Many new restaurants that we try are "okay" but not ones we would return to. However, we will most definitely return to Corner Grille!

Our server, Liberty, was engaging, entertaining and attentive. We had a couple of local brews along with the shrimp fitters, Maryland lump crab cakes and blackened Grouper. The Grouper was a hearty piece of fish and was cooked to perfection, as were all our other items. I highly recommend this place, especially if you're staying at one of the airport area hotels. Top notch!

While looking for a place to eat while staying at an Atlanta airport hotel, we found The Corner Grille and it now is one of our favorite restaurants ever. The food was among the best we have ever tasted starting with the chicken, shrimp & sausage gumbo. That was followed by amazing crab cakes and Cajun pasta, topped off with beignets. Our server Alexis was friendly and professional helping make our evening even better. We may plan a trip back to Atlanta just to eat here again...it's that good. A new favorite at the top of our list of favorites. Don't miss The Corner Grille.

This was our first visit to the Corner Grill in College Park. Liked everything about it -- the food, service, location, decor. However, they did not have beignets!! The main reasons we picked the restaurant for dinner. We were very disappointed. Hopefully, next visit, they won't have run out.

It was nice. The area isn't that great. They won't seat you until all your party has arrived. It was a little smaller than I expected but we didn't have a large party. The food was okay. I got the catfish and shrimp. The catfish wasn't fried as hard as I usually like and the batter was falling off the shrimp. The fries were average. Pricing wasn't outrageous. Our server was friendly. I don't have any major complaints about this place. I probably won't be back anytime soon but not because anything was wrong, I just don't live in the area.

We were in Atlanta for a family wedding and staying at an Airport hotel. We arrived late the day before and were convinced that we were going to be stuck eating dinner at some chain restaurant. Doing a bit of Open Table research led us to find The Corner Grille. So happy that we took the time to research.
Amazing, authentic Cajun and Southern offerings. There were eight of us in the group. Several had the Chicken & Waffles, others had the Shrimp & Grits, and one had the Salmon Club. All raved about the food. Paired with a choice of local craft brews, this is a place that we will definitely visit anytime that we have more than just a layover at Hartsfield Airport.

I thoroughly enjoyed my dining out experience at The Corner Grille. It was highly recommended and was a great spot for Saturday brunch. The service was excellent and seating was very prompt. The mimosas are to die for, and the seafood omelette special was simply delicious. I will definitely revisit soon and highly recommend this place to my friends and family!

We enjoyed our dinner at the Corner Grille . Close to the airport , wonderful food a great place to wait out the traffic . Plan to do it again.
We flew in at 4:30 off the plane at 5 didn't want to suffer through the traffic . The Cornet Grille is the perfect solution . Wonderful menu and wine selections . recommended !

The wife and I was kind of disappointed we though we was going to a moderate high end Resturant but Corner Grill was anything but high end. A hole in the wall would be more accurate the receptionist met us at the door and just said follow me and took us to the far wall for settings but left and we sat for about four minute before our waitress showed up I tried to tell her that we had open table reservation but the blank look on her face told me she had no idea what I was talking about. She asked us what we wanted to drink we both ordered ice teas with lemon. At this I wanted to lease but my wife said since we drove all the way over here let's give them a chance the food might be good. Boy was that a under statement, the best part of our meal was the Caesar salads the wife had the Cajun pasta which had soo much pepper you could not taste the shrimp or the crawfish she had to send her dish back to the kitchen to be toned and when9 it came back she could not tell the difference she the waitress the best part one dish was the bread. My dish was no different, I had the blacken ribeye without the blacken seasoning with mashed potatoes and the veggie medley the steak was cooked as I asked but it was warm not hot the mash potatoes had a taste to them that I could not recognize so iDisk not eat them the veggies were kind of good except for the Brussels sprouts they were not cooked. The waitress can and told us that they had run out of lace tea and they weren't going to make anymore , who runs out of tea. I had a glass of wine which was surprisingly good so we paid our check and tipped the waitress and left to never return

The wine and beer selections du jour were exceptional, and the server knew what to pair them with without being didactic. The po-boy (done with shrimp for a $1 upcharge) was huge and delicious, and the shrimp and grits rivals anything the good local competition puts out (sorry, I don't have a Southern grandma to compare it with). It was quiet for an early dinner on a Tuesday with a friend from out of town with a plane to catch. This is going to be my go-to restaurant for friends on a long layover, because it was just a solid Southern cooking joint steps from the MARTA and seconds from the airport. I'm so glad I found this place because it beats anything on Camp Creek Parkway! Price was totally reasonable and service was unobtrusive, warm and knowledgeable.

I've dined at The Corner Grille a few times. The food is typically good and the environment--though a small restaurant--inviting. Despite having reservations, we had to wait 10+ minutes for our table. It took an unreasonable amount of time to place our order and receive the meal. We were told that was because of a "large" party in front of us though we arrived before and was seated before the "large" party. I ordered the grilled Mahi-Mahi which was way overcooked and ended up being crispy. I will continue to patronize the restaurant but not in a rush to return.

Seated early, which was nice. It seemed clean and trendy. Pleasant greeting by hostess and waitress. Average prices for the quality of the food. My steak was tender and flavorful. My husband lived the trout, which was a large portion. Our only complaint was the loud talking of the other guests. They were actually screaming. We couldn't hear each other and it was very disturbing. We left as soon as possible.
We were meeting someone who was coming from the other side of town and this was a halfway point for all of us. I saw that the reviews were positive and we liked that there were Cajun items on the menu. Our waitress, Vanessa, was superb. The food was superb. The only thing I didn't care for was the noise level. It's a very small place and there was a very loud table which carried through the whole place.
OK for a small get together
Overall it was a nice place to eat. The noise level is very high, but it is a very small place, so you have to expect that. I would recommend it to friends, but not for a large get together. Waitress was very cordial and accommodating. I will return for future very small gatherings.

Their take on the calamari was different but still good in its own right. The shrimp and cornmeal fritters were also very good. The ran out of the shrimp and grits, bummer, but the blackened fish made up for it. Overall a good place with good food that we plan on visiting again.
Once again Open Table came through as we were traveling and had no idea where to go. After exploring Atlanta and having just moved to an airport hotel for an early flight we were hoping we wouldn't have to go far for a good dinner. As airports are not known to be located in the hub of great food districts we were not sure we could find anything decent. The Corner Grill came through. My sister and I shared a Bleu Bird salad which was a meal in itself and excellent. For dinner we had the Chicken & Waffles, Shrimp & Grits and Cajun Pasta - everyone of our meals were amazing and the table was very quiet as we delighted in every bite. Chris our waiter was adorable and eager to please. I highly recommend The Corner Grill even if you are not staying at the airport!
Great service; inattentive hostess
Great server, lazy hostess. When we arrived the evening of April 24th it was late and the restaurant was pretty empty. We waited for someone to seat us for several minutes. At one point a young lady who we later discovered was the hostess came out from the back, looked at us and turned around and went to the kitchen. One of the servers saw us waiting and came over to seat us. As we were being seated, the hostess returned , looked at us again and walked away. She never apologized or acknowledged us. If the server had not seated us we have left and not returned.
The young man who took his time to seat us was also our server.Excellent job....and our tip reflected our appreciation.
Thanks to him we will return again....in spite of a lazy hostess.
