I have been coming to this restaurant for around 3 years. I feel like this place is my home away from home. The food is really cheap for a sit down establishment with nothing on the regular menu over $10.99 and that is a shrimp basket. The portions are very good as well. When you are a regular customer you will occasionally receive free meal coupons either through the mail or in person. My advice for those who said they had bad service would to be to come during the week when the restaurant is less busy since the more crowded it is the longer food takes. Also any restaurant has high employee turnover so be sure to get a server like Jamar or Ouzan who has been there for a long time and that would improve your service as well. If you go on say a Wednesday though it is really intimate. They have Wii in the back room and regularly have concerts either through 99X or special events. On Memorial Day weekend there was a BBQ and blues event that was especially great. In the summer the patio is great especially if there is a breeze and in the winter they have a fireplace. One of the things I love most about it is when they have weddings and you can basically watch the wedding from where you are sitting if you are placed right. Depending on who is getting married the music is also usually really good on those nights. The restaurant is very inclusive and diverse. You can take your kids here and it is also very welcoming to GLBT people and is generally fairly ethnically diverse as well. If you are driving there is free parking and if you take MARTA it's very close to the Midtown station just walk to the end of the park right past Grady High School. The atmosphere is very casual and welcoming I never feel like I'm not dressed well enough to go there and never feel I'm looked down on as someone who is fairly working class myself.
If you ever want to grab lunch in the park then I definitely recommend going to Park Tavern! This place is so lovely that often times there are events here or even weddings! Rainbow Roll– $12.99- King crab, cucumber and avocado on the inside with salmon, tuna & yellowtail on the outside– I love that this sushi comes with three types of fish! It was really great & I would get this again! I ordered it with sweet potato fries (yes I know- what a weird combo) but I loved that I could get both in the same restaurant!Buffalo Wings (kicked-up)- $8.99-These wings are served with celery and blue cheese for dipping. I personally love spicy foods so I got mine “kicked-up”. Would definitely recommend!Drink deal:Park Tavern offers a deal that says “When it Rains, We Pour $1 Drafts!” Keep this in mind next time it starts raining in Atlanta! There are apparently exceptions to this deal but it helps to be aware of them through their facebook and twitter page.
I been to JR Crickets a couple of times at night. The environment is very casual and a not very loud. The drinks are good but they aren't strong. There is a frozen alcoholic bar which is nice in the summer. The food is average sports bar food. There are TVs you can see from any place in the restaurant that are usually tuned in to a game.The times I been to JR the service is extremely slow. The waitress are usually very friendly but it takes forever for someone to come to take my order and to receive your food so don't come if you're in a hurry. Given this, I will still return to JR because I like the feel of a lounge/bar but not overly crowded like a club.
The manager here was super nice! Our waitress informed us that almost all of the food items in the restaurant are made in-house including their ketchup and vinegar which I thought was impressive! We started with two drinks that I wouldn't plan to get again: Peachtree & Spring (tasted like straight whiskey) and Peaches & Peppers Sangria (tasted too herb-y to me but my friend liked it!) I recommend the tavern fries and double stack burger! Get fries instead of the mac & cheese b/c the mac & cheese was a little undersalted. The peanut butter pie which isn't always available was amazing- get it if you can!
Overlooks the beautiful area of Piedmont Park, but is still guarded away from just anyone walking through the park. They have food menu items for anyone and everyone to choose from including healthy, gluten-free, lower calorie, smaller portioned, larger portioned, vegetarian, American, Asian, bar food, sushi so much more. They have several bars inside and outside for everyone to get a cold beverage from. The outside patio is covered and can hold a very large crowd of people. The servers are knowledgeable and courteous.
Great little place for a casual evening. The atmosphere is very welcoming and warm, and there's a large outdoor space for when the weather is nice. Their food is on par with their neighborhood tavern theme (think pizzas, salads, or pot roast), but their cocktails are out of this world! I was really impressed with the Knock Knock Who's There one, which is made with rye, ginger, basil and balsamic! More details here: http://bit.ly/29H4GV5
This place is so fun if you're looking for a lively night out. My friends and I went here for my birthday after dinner and grabbed the mic for karaoke. We actually stayed late enough to shut the place down! Their drinks are nothing super impressive, but the staff there is fantastic. From the bartenders to the karaoke staff and band. It's always a fantastic place to begin or end the night!
This place is going to be my new spot. The outdoor seating overlooking Piedmont Park is like no other place i've been to. At fist i thought it would be really expensive since the decor was so nice and fancy, but the drink specials and food prices were extremely affordable. They have half price sushi every night at 10 PM! and it's delicious!
Park tavern is a great place to grab a drink or a bite to eat. It sits right on Piedmont park with a sky line view. The outdoor patio is nice when it's not so hot out.. They have live music on the weekends. Ask, when it rains beer is $1! They also have half price sushi after 10!
Try the king salmon bowl! I love to bring out-of-towners to this spot because of the perfect view of Piedmont park and midtown. The outdoor patio is great for dog lovers and sports fanatics. They don't have a great drink selection but I've never been disappointed with the food.
