Over Easy Easy – Great food-if you like your over easy eggs with raw whites, and then being told your wrong for sending them back. I would have enjoyed my meal after my eggs were re-cooked, but no, my ego inflated scene kid of a server felt the need to inform me that for my future reference over easy eggs have runny egg whites……..really dude? Because Im pretty sure Im a classically French trained cook who just so happens to have cooked hundreds of over easy eggs to order…..and Im pretty sure anyone with any culinary knowledge would agree that over easy is just runny yolk. So for the sake of this review the service here may be horrible but the food Is decent over all. Ill be back here again, only next time ill just have to be too drunk to drive anywhere else.
good breakfast place – i like dropping by this diner for breakfast. they're open 24 7 and the place is relatively clean. However, I agree with the other reviews, the servers have a tendency to chat and ignore customers sometimes, which can get annoying if i'm in a hurry. they'll chat even as they ring up your check.
Great food, but HORRID service the last time I went. – The food that me and my friends had at the Majestic on Sunday 11/23 was GREAT... but the waitress was probably the worst experience I've ever had in a restaurant. Not only did she get my order wrong, she got my friend's order wrong, as well, and was never at the table long enough for us to say anything. She was short to the point of rudeness, threw silverware into the server station in what appeared to be a temper tantrum, and also LOST our to-go order. We watched another waitress TELL her about it, and she seemed to just not care. Thankfully, we weren't charged for the to go, but it meant I had to go to another diner later to get a burger for my friend.
When she brought our checks (we didn't ask, and we were actually discussing milkshakes when she slapped down the check before we could tell her we wanted separate checks) she accused us of leaving before paying, as well- when I thought I had to pay up front, as I had in the past. No big deal- but she was snotty about that ("Just because I said have a good night, it doesn't mean you're done, you have to PAY me.") and had another snit about us splitting the check. As if they didn't do that- I've been there numerous times and people have done separate checks before- of course, they usually let us tell them that before the check is brought.
Just the WORST service, ever. We didn't tip. I've never done that before, and I work in the restaurant business, myself.... but I just was not about to leave such a miserable excuse for a server any money.
I don't even think I'll be back, even though the food is great and the other servers have always at least been nice.
Best Breakfast in Atlanta – We've been going to Majestic Diner for years and love everything about it. Their breakfast, simply put, is awesome. They have a gyro omelette that is outstanding, their burgers are also a stand out, and their milkshakes are the best. If you are looking for good, down to earth food in an unpretentious atmosphere, Majestic Diner is your place.
Atlanta Landmark & Rite of Passage – Until you have had a late night and ended up at the Majestic you shouldn't call yourself an Atlantan. This diner is the place to be in the wee hours of latenighters of Friday and Saturday. It is also a wonderful breakfast stop on Saturdays and Sundays. Having said that, I have eaten at the Majestic at all times of the day and night and I've always left with a full belly and happy smile. The wait staff is excellent and capable of handling any situation because they already have. They make you feel right at home and their food is excellent. Everyone that comes to Atlanta or lives here should have a meal at the Majestic. A+++
Classic Diner – The workers are laidback but sometimes lazy (especially when it's not busy, they seem to get caught up in conversation). The food is good and reliable. OPEN 24/7!! It's comparable to waffle house except without the missing teeth and nastiness. I go here often and typically enjoy myself. If I spend 2 hours there getting fired up on coffee because of somewhat slow service, I never seem to be bothered by it. Whatever's good.
Majestic, It's all about the breakfast – People should not be confused. It is not high quality cuisine why you go here. It is the BREAKFAST, served all day everyday. This is the only place where I can find decent corned beef hash and cheese eggs, Yeah its on the cholesterol no no but after the club there is no place else that can give you chic greasy spoon type action. Better than you waffle house not quite an IHOP but it is it's own unique institution. Anyone who has an expectation that vegetables should be al dente' need to step up their game and go to a more upwardly mobile eatery around the corner in the Highlands area. This is not for you. But if you need good food at a good price , and you are on statins GO. It's a landmark and should be celebrated as such.
worst vegetables ever – vegetarians: all of the veggies are severely overcooked. Broccoli doesn't even look green any more, it's just a dark grey mush. Same with the Mac'n'Cheese. I don't think they've ever heard the term al dente. If you like vegetables to be cooked in a crock-pot, then this is your place. The rest of the food may be amazing though, I can't speak for that.
Great Atmosphere, Bad Omelette – Seriously bad Cheddar Cheese Omelette I had there last night...It was basically three eggs folded around five or so slices of cheese, lacking all of the finesse a good omelette requires. I didn't complain because, well, they were open and I wasn't driving anywhere else. Veggie burger is good, vegetable soup is actually vegetarian, and the atmosphere is thick with hipsters and the intoxicated. Oh yeah, the grits are good too...
Consistent excellent quality. Best breakfast in Atl. – I've been visiting the Majestic for over 20 years. It's always been good and fun, but over the past year or so it has become even better. The food is consistently fresh, hot and good. The management is gradually upgrading the place while keeping the old charm. You can't go wrong!
