Great Experience – I had the opportunity to dine at 5 Seasons Brewing Westside last evening. When it was mentioned that we were going to eat at 5 Seasons, I was very skeptical. I have never heard great recommendations for this restaurant. I was asked to have an open mind. And I'm glad I did. From the time we walked in the service was prompt.
We struck up a conversation with one of the managers (sorry, name escapes me) who was sitting at the bar. He was very knowledgable about the wines, beers and menu. He even took us on a tour of the kitchen (impeccable) and banquet facilities. We were both very impressed.
We sat at the bar for dinner and had an incredible time. I ordered the sea scallops and wedge salad. Both were incredible. My friend had the Halibut Cheeks and it was outstanding. The prices were very reasonable.
I would definitely take the time to stop by and enjoy a great meal and beer or wine. I'll definitely be back!
Not Good for Parties – NOT GOOD FOR LARGE PARTIES!!!! This past Saturday we had a group of 18 reserved for a party. Reservation was made 2 weeks in advance. The table was ready when we arrived but NOTHING and NOONE else was. We had to go to the bar to order drinks. I literally had to flag down the bartender to take my order and he only had 2 people sitting at his bar - he was just talking with a coworker. Once we sat down we had to ask someone to come take our order and it ended up being the bartender who didn't know too much about the menu. Out of Duck. Out of Grouper. Oh my! It was unbelievable. Good thing that we were all friends and a pretty laid back group or it could have gotten real ugly. When food finally came it was ok. Not great and nothing I would go back for. When bill came we were charged for 2 pitchers of beer more than what we had ordered. I mean come on people - get it together!!!!
Unknown Gem – Be adventurous and try their unique menu with ostrich, alligator, rabbit, antelope, venison, sweet bread and more. They also have normal food - buffalo wings, calamari, bean burgers - that are also delicious.
They only serve beer that they brew on premise, which are delicious. Great wine selection and accommodating staff.
Check the place out, they do live music, tapas on Tuesday, and more.
Good location – 1/31/2010...update!!!! This time the stinky mop smell was gone, the service was great (good job Alex) and the food was very tasty. The fish tacos were yummy and the sweet potatoes fries outstanding. I will go back 'cause between the yummy food and the good beer, this is a fun place to hang out!!! 1/18/2010 Walked in, the place reeked like old and very dirty dish water. Just a bit of an assault to the senses. It had also been raining and it appeared that there was some sort of leak in the foyer. Traffic cones were pretty unattractive. Get out a mop for crying out loud. Went on a Sunday afternoon and the place was dead but I can imagine that on a busy night it's really noisy. They had a great and kind of unusual selection of home brews. Refreshing to see someone taking a chance. Food was better than I expected particularly the clam po' boy, cole slaw and potato salad. Did have to wait a bit for the food which seemed odd considering there were about 15 people there and this place is pretty big. If these people fixed whatever the problem was in the foyer and the really nasty smell, I'd go back for sure.
Atlanta's popular brewing co. gets a warehouse upgrade. – In Short
What better place to put a brewery than in a warehouse space in the industrial Westside? The third location of this popular suburban brewing company certainly looks and feels the part with high ceilings, exposed brick and a dude-approved rooftop patio. Daily beer specials are scrawled on a towering blackboard above the bar and some--like the espresso stout--give a nod to the ‘hood by using coffee brewed by neighboring Octane. The menu (like the other locations) is straight weird as hell. Antelope burger, apples on pizza, Thai curry dishes at a brewery? It seems as if every selection has a strange twist providing no safe choice for the un-adventurous. It’s a beer bar that’s replaced fries with foie gras. Despite its unusual menu, selections come out decently-executed, giving reason to change up the normal beer-n-burgers routine.
Trendy Location, Tasty food! – This place is pretty cool. I went here on a whim (and recommendation from my nail salon Nouvelle which is right across the street). My friend and I had a late lunch on the patio. I had the pork ribs with a side of sweet potato fries. I really enjoyed the house made bbq sauce and the coco-butter that came with fries. The food was definitely fresh and our waiter, Jesse, was knowledgeable, helpful, curteous and friendly. Im sure I'll be back whenever Im in the neighbourhood.
SLOWWW FOODs – The food at this westside location is very good. The organic offerings are mixed in interesting combinations and are usually delicious. The interior is slick but a little bit loud due to all the metal surfaces. The outdoor dining is nice with the deep porch. We've been twice and both times the service was pretty slow. Takes the "slow food" concept in a direction that may be unintended.
