Vortex Bar & Grill

 5 star(s)  (05/15/2014)
“Have been eating at the Vortex (all locations) for years and it's always good! Sandwiches are huge, burgers excellent, sides always enjoyable and delicious - especially the tater tots. Not sure if the previous reviewer eats out much or not, but it is typical for restaurants to add an 18% gratuity fo... ”

Buckhead Diner

 4 star(s)  (05/24/2009)
“Good food and service but not the best place if you want to take the kids out to eat. I suggest going there for a dinner or lunch date.”

American Roadhouse

 4 star(s)  (01/01/2008)
“A fine breakfast/brunch place in a trendy neighborhood of Atlanta. Good eggs benedict, omelets, low-cal specialties. Friendly quick service. Parking behind restr.”

Vortex Bar & Grill

 1 star(s)  (08/20/2007)
“Wouldn't eat here again if my life depended on it. Food was good, but the postive comments end there. A few of my friends and I decided to try Vortex to celebrate a birthday. The waiter was very sarcastic and rude when we asked about items on the menu. We asked for separate checks and we were told i... ”

Morton's The Steakhouse

 5 star(s)  (12/27/2003)
“Excellent food! Excellent service. VERRRRRY expensive but worth it! Not for kids!”

Hard Rock Cafe

 5 star(s)  (07/24/2003)
“Great place for kids of all ages! The Hard Rock Cafe offers great burgers, salads and sandwiches for all appetites. I would recommend reservations if you have more than 20 people in your group and are wanting to attend when large conventions are in town. We waited 2 hours during the Lutheran Gath... ”

Houston's Restaurant

 5 star(s)  (03/15/2000)
“My wife and I visited your restaurant 3/27/00 somewhere between 12:30 and 1:00 p.m. We waited for about 30 minutes, and then we were seated. We ordered our meals and waited maybe 10-15 minutes more. While engrossed in conversation with friends, the waiter delivered our meals. I must say that it was ... ”

Hal's On Old Ivy Buckhead

 5 star(s)  (01/20/2000)
“I have visited Hal's many times over the years and the quality of food and service never varies, always great! Sufficient wine list, good selection of after meal cigars, enjoyable but not intrusive piano player. Try any veal dish and you won't be disappointed. I'd put their creamed spinach against a... ”

The Flying Biscuit Cafe

 5 star(s)  (10/26/1999)
“Excellent food!! I especially recommend the Flying Biscuit Breakfast (oven roasted rosemary potatoes, fresh turkey sage sausage, eggs, and a biscuit), and the Black Bean Quesadilla. They have food from healthy to decadent and all of it is good. Also try the Linzer cookies (raspberry) at their bak... ”

American Roadhouse

 4 star(s)  (10/02/1999)
“We go here all the time for great brunch fare, blue-plate items, salads, and a fun atmosphere for kids. Wait times can be long on weekends, but its worth it. Service is always with a smile, even if sometimes a little rushed. ”
