This a an Atlanta diamond! I think one of the best restaurants around!
I don't understand the reviews on this place at all... This restaurant was great! If you like Gone with the Wind you'll definitely love this place.
The decor is very southern as is the ambiance...
Our waiter was great considering the place was PACKED and they were understaffed. We were in no way in a hurry so we didn't care.
To drink I had their moonshine punch which was very good!
For an appetizer we had Fried Green Tomatoes and they were so good! I could have just made a meal out of those! For dinner of course had to try the fried chicken and it came with yummy cornbread, muffins, or biscuits of your choice, mashed potatoes and gravy and a trip up to the sideboard which had a spread of several different Southern Salads. It was terrific!
To top the night off we had a piece of their Classic Pecan Pie which could have been legally termed a candy bar it was heavenly!
If your in Atlanta definitely check this place out! It's a great place to eat if your looking for a little bit of Country in the City!
This is a fun place to visit with a group of people. The fried chicken was very good as were the sides.
Whoa, I forgot about this place. It's one of the first resturants I tried when I first came to Atlanta.
It is a bit difficult to find, since it is tucked away across from the Westin - so it is best to slow right going west on Andrew Young and watch your right until you see the sign. FYI, I am not sure if there is free parking.
When you come in, you are greet with a nice Southern, Antebelum environment (could be a good or bad thing, depending on what side your ancestors were during the Civil War and whether they were owned or not). From there, you walk downstairs and then get seated.
The food is quite good, AFAIR, no complaints with the service.
Our waiter was phenomenal – We really enjoyed the food and the atmosphere- but our waiter was phenomenal- thank you so much!
Damn I am surprised how badly the previous reviews slammed this place. I used to go here as a child with my very Southern mother when the Peachtree Plaza was just built.
I think this place is great if you are looking for good Southern Food in a very pleasant piano player filled surroundings.
Calling this place touristy is funny since it is surrounded by chain restaurants and is located in a very touristy area. Of course this place is touristy, but that still doesn't mean that it isn't good and it isn't like their web page says ' an Atlanta institution'.
I had a great time here. The restaurant is full of last century kitchen implements and pictures of the cast of Gone with the Wind. I agree that it is tasteful, but bordered enough on camp to inspire me to do my best Ret Butler, Scarlet O'hara, and Sally Cato (Auntie Mame) impressions. The waiter put on his best Southern accent too. (The Scarlet O'hara punch helped fuel my inspiration no doubt too).
The sweat potato biscuits were to die for. You must have some with your obligatory helping of corn bread. The pecan encrusted Cat fish fingers and the black eyed pea cake appetizers took me back to my childhood travels to my relatives in Charleston. I loved the fried chicken and the Savannah crab cakes that reminded me of what my mother used to make when she felt like cooking and not ordering out.
We finished our meal with some very good pecan and key-lime pie. Overall a very satisfying experience. Yeah I am sure if you are a local Atlantian you are way too 'sophisticated' to admit you would like this place, but if you are a tourist this place should be on your list of places to eat.
Worst restaurant experience of my life – My family and I went here for the first time on Mother's day 2010. My mother really loves southern food. The restaurent was running a special where mother's eat free. The food's quality didn't match it's price. My mother couldn't even finish her fried chicken, which is her favorite treat usually. We asked our server if we could use 2 free dessert coupons my father had. She said yes. She returned after she brought us the desserts (to go) and our bill and said the manager wouldn't let us use the coupons and the Mother's day promotion together. I went to speak to the manager having faith that they would honor what the server had told us. I went to the woman at the cashier and began to ask if she was the manager and she cut me off stating they couldn't use the coupons. My server saw this and redirected me to the manager. He was a very old gentleman sitting in a chair so I approached and knelt next to him and began to explain my problem. He also cut me off stating they would not honor the coupons. The coupons, by the way, had no disclaimers stating that they could not be combined with any other offers nor did they have any kind of expiration date. I restated that I thought he should honor what his server had told me and he cut me off a second time stating that he could not "give away the house". Our coupons were for 2 free $6 desserts. He began to tell me he was going to give me a choice when I thanked him for his assistance and decided to go back to my family and just leave. As I walked away he began shouting at me about how he couldn't give things away etc etc etc. I stopped listening. He was completely unprofessional and was not conducting his business with integrity. All this was topped off when they convinced my sister to initial on my father's receipt where he had given a $30 tip on top of the 20% gratuity placed on our check of 6 people. My father clearly didn't see the gratuity already taken. He had to go back in the restaurant to correct this after we had already left the building and my sister told him what happened. All in all, this was the worst restaurant experience of my life.
High Quality! – The food at Pittypat's was the embodiment of great Southern food. The service, atmosphere, and food were all amazing! I cannot wait to go back!
2xcellent! – Pittypat's Porch is loaded with southern charm and excellent food!The mashed potatoes were amazing, and the meats were cooked to perfection.
If you love southern cooking DON'T go! – The decor's upscale Cracker Barrel but the comparison stops there.
Our waiter was in-attentive & aloof. Appetizers were NOT good. Blackeyed pea cakes were more like unseasoned pond sludge breaded & fried.
I ordered roasted venison. The cut was tough & tastless, covered in what was called a demiglace. NOT A GOOD CHOICE. My meal came with a salad (I found later it should have been a trip to the salad bar). The waiter brought salads to the table and said "I put ranch on it, I hope that's ok" turned and left. The salad consisted of canned chichen salad, canned three bean salad, celery, and lots of ranch dressing.
Please never make the same mistake we made. Stay away!
