Kevin Rathbun surprised folks when he located in a warehouse setting in Inman Park but now its a standard bearer in the city. The menu runs the gamut & the sides are rich - in a good wat. Don't miss out on the banana peanut butter pie - my favorite dessert in the city
Very memorable dining experience! Rathbun's has a great dining atmosphere. I was in the area for a fundraiser event and had the chance to dine here. Very unique menu and atmosphere was awesome. Well worth it!
Best Food In Town – Rathbuns is by far my favorite restaurant in Atlanta. Very diverse menu offers a lot of different tastes to choose from. I suggest the Georgia salt an pepper shrimp. AWESOME!
Excellent Food and Service – Great meal and atmosphere. This is definitely the restaurant to visit from chef Kevin Rathburn. He really gets this restaurant right and love Krog bar next door, its a fun late night place. I have never ordered a bad thing off the menu and the staff is very attentive. The portions are just the right size. love visiting this place with out of town guests!
A minus – Aside from the fact that I wish they would add some more options to their menu (quite limited), Rathbuns is a wonderful restaurant! Great ambiance, flavorful food, attentive staff. The portions aren't large but just enough if you order a 3 course meal
truly wonderful. – I certainly loved the taste of their food. You could tell it was prepared from fresh ingredients and it was served in a very appetizing way.
enjoyed it a lot – I am always adventurous when it comes to tasting different types of food. My sister and I tried this restaurant and I was satisfied with the food they served us. It was very rich in flavor, and the ingredients that they used were fresh. We absolutely liked their service because the attendants were prompt in providing our orders. It was indeed a very rewarding experience.
Fantastic experience each and every time! – After several visits, me and my husband have had great food, and service is impecable each time we go. I work in Inman Park, and it's always a breeze even to pop in after work and hang out at the bar and have a few small plates. In fact, just about each time we go, we have appies and small plates because the choices are impossible to pick just one. Ask for Alycia to be your server and you will always leave with hands down some of the best dining you will ever have. Whether it's questions about specials, wine or whatever she will have you covered. And after you go, walk across to Krog Bar for after dinner drinks. Very cool bar indeed! I will keep going back time and time again always.
There's not much to say that hasn't been said already – Kevin Rathbun is one of the all-timers in Atlanta food in my mind and his signature restaurant is one of THE best the city has to offer. I've yet to try a dish there that wasn't masterfully crafted. The space is fantastic. The service is friendly and knowledgeable. And every dish is as well executed as you'll get anywhere.
You aren't going to go wrong with any choice at Rathbun's, but if I had to pick a few personal favorites I would say start with YaYa's eggplant steak fries, but be warned they come as a hefty portion - just right for a group of 4-6. As far as entrees, I love the flat iron steak. I would say stay away from the brisket, but not because it's not good (it is), but because if you wanted brisket you would have been better off going to someplace with plaid tablecloths and a smoker in the parking lot.
For me the side dishes are the most memorable part of a Rathbun's meal, and they are what put my love for this place over the top. The charred corn with gouda is unbelievable. The cauliflower mash is spectacular. And the four cheese orchiette (read: mac-n-cheese) will knock your socks off.
Dessert? I can't help you there. I always order way too many sides to have room for sweets at the end, but I'm sure everything is fantastic!
Practically Unbeatable – Possibly the best American-style restaurant in the southeast with one of the best chefs the ATL has to offer, Rathbun's sits unassumingly in a former warehouse near the end of Krog Street in the Old Fourth Ward. Minimalist yet charming decor is nearly forgotten as soon as the menu arrives. Creative, shareable small plates like sweet potato fries with powdered sugar shows Rathbun's playful side while "second mortgage" large plates show off his culinary chops. Do yourself a favor quickly scoop some friends and check out the best Atlanta has to offer.
YUM! – Excellent service and friendly bar staff. This continues to be one of my all time favorites in this city!
