A disappointing experience – As I'm reading through these reviews about the service at the Righteous Room I find myself wondering: "Where were these amazing servers tonight?!?" Our server ( a lady with short, dirty blonde hair) was absolutely miserable. As some point during our meal, she just said to hell with decent service and started slamming plates down on the table and ignoring us. We're not needy or rude. It was kinda busy... but by no means busy enough for her to stop using her words. The food is great and I may try it out again if this experience wears off, but be forewarned : good servers are hard to come by and the Righteous Room missed its mark with this one.
Great Service. Relaxed Vibe – Perhaps I’m biased because it’s within walking distance to my place, but The Righteous Room is one of my favorite spots to hang out. The bartenders are friendly and I’ve always had good service. The barbecue sandwich is delish, as is the hummus. The jukebox is fantastic, and while there is no dance floor, no one minds if you break out into dance in the middle of the place. (I’ve seen it happen.) If you’re looking for a laid back atmosphere, stiff drinks, and great music, you can’t go wrong here.
Great Late Night Snack Spot – Killer guacamole with a kitchen open to 12am on a monday night, a rare find.
Great food, pretty poor service – If you've heard of this place, you might have heard something like "this used be one of the best hangouts in Atlanta like 10 years ago" or something like that. I'm not sure if it's the influx of fratboys/yuppies, so much as the general influx in the whole city. I will say that it's become pretty standard for the service to absolutely suk. It's not uncommon to see 2 or 3 employees doing shots while half the bar is glaring at them, waiting for their check or their order or something. The jukebox can be painfully loud too.
coolest birthday ever – I was in atlanta for a short weekend and circumstances were odd... my friend took me to the righteous room. it was in a great spot, near a theatre and across the street from a buiding i was told was once owned by al capone...? either way it was trully genuine and appreciative service, delicious food and the best juke box i have had the pleasure to play in a long time... The bathroom walls are strewn with attempted poetry and artwork, something to see. the owner patrick was especially attentive, generous and charming. loved the spot, wish i lived there...
Righteous Bros. Jukebox & Hip Bar Grub! – Last night after leaving the Plaza Theater, for my retro movie house fix, we went next door to still one of the coolest little joints in town, with one of the best jukeboxes, anywhere. We ordered a couple of cold ones, from one tatooted out dude, who was just cool and very nice. My fave here always, is the big sloppy grilled cheese, and I have them put a couple of slices of bacon on. Talking about the ultimate comfort food. Cheese, cheese, and more cheese. My buddy had the veggie burger, while turning up his nose at my bacon. But we both got down on those onion straws. Killer jukebox, loudly playing the Righteous Brothers, "You've Lost That Lovin Feelin". And I always loose that feeling, when I walk out the door, of this little hip, cool spot on Ponce!
This funky Titan of the Atlanta bar scene wins big with a solid beer list, great snacks and a killer juke box. – In Short
An unlikely strip mall storefront gives way to this perpetually dark, clove cigarette-scented alcoholic underworld that's stocked with do-it-yourself furnishings, a funky bar and a jukebox. A regular spot for both after-work drinks and late-night pub grub, stars like Pink and Butch Walker blend in with the locals at this dark little joint. Known almost as much as a reliable snacks place as it is a watering hole, the Righteous Room is a nearly perfect continuum of good beer, respectable hard liquor pours and intelligent revisions of the usual bar food offerings. At the heart of the menu are dishes that are just healthy enough but without the kind of tricked-up vegetarian leanings that get in the way of a mildly self-destructive good time. Big winners include the self-proclaimed fatty grilled cheese, the hummus or salmon quesadilla and a very respectable burger. The onion straws are fantastic.
All Hail the Righteous Room! – All Hail the Righteous Room. They have an amazing jutebox, and clientel who use it to its potential. The service at the RR is dead on the money. They just don't miss a beat. The manager great. And the food wonderful. Best salad in town. How 'bout the black-eyed-pea chili? Brilliant! You can even get a decent glass of wine.
service sucks – Great drinks, but some of the females that work there need to not be in such a bad mood all of the time.
good for a low-key night – It was girls night out & someone suggested this place. We were a little disappointed at first, b/c it's nothing special for a girls-night-out. . but the food was yummm & the drinks were reasonably priced. Not the place to go for a HOT night on the town, but definately a place to go and just chill out.
