Pretty Cool

I've been here a few times after seeing new movie releases in the movie theater in the same shopping center.

They smoke inside - which doesn't really bother me even though I am not a smoker. The place is very laid back, with a very diverse crowd and you can hang up at the bar and make some buddies.

Favorite bar in Atlanta

Has been and always will be my favorite bar in Atlanta! The staff is great,food is good and the drinks are strong.
The day regulars and the night regulars always make it interesting and if you know them you know them for life.. When the Highlander parties it parties like there's no tomorrow.

#1 dive bar, great food, loud music

this is my fav late night place to hang out and grab dinner or a quick/cheap (pbr pitchers) beer. the hot spinach salad is delicious. ive also had the burgers, veggie quesadillas, and mozz cheese sticks. all very good. the best part is they serve food very late so if you are looking for a really tasty good late night snack, this here is your place. also, the staff and decor is slightly punk/goth but it shouldn't bother you too much unless you are trying to ""see and be seen"" (this is not that kind of place). also, don't go if you aren't into dive bars and can't handle very loud music blasting while you eat.

Great room,..good bar food....other then the ridic TV viewing...ugh

Legendary joint here in town, mostly living off past accolades for food, but still a solid spot for ""really bad for ya"" food. Salty bartender, but palatable, so no need to gripe about them, as they take pride in it.
Will go back, but please, please, do not show the flippin Aninmal planet channel on the 50 inch big screen while eating and trying to socialize. I know this isn't exactly a sports bar, but gimme a we really need to see when ""wild animals attack"" during a hungover weekend lunch.....geeeeezzz...ugh. If they still don't cooperate and change it, then simply eat on the patio and the point is moot.

Good beer selection, obnoxiously rude bartenders

Been going here for years to play pool before a movie at midtown art. Beer selection is decent and hole-in-the-wall atmosphere is well-done.

The other night however, went for a drink before a movie. Ordered a Smithwicks and it was flat, watery, and tasteless. They clearly needed to change the keg. The bartender mocked me and told me I didn't know sh*$ (been a waiter and bartender for many years) and after quite a bit of haggling poured me something else.

Tatortots and chicken fingers were smashing good for bar food (make you get the honey mustard dip with it). With all the bars in atlanta, the highlander is unremarkable albeit its dirty, loud, and raucous atmosphere.

Nice patio and good selection

so if you are not open minded nor easy going then dont go to the highlander. we went on a fall friday evening, sat on the large patio, and had great food. the crowd was very mixed, a little biker, a little country, and a little yuppy. the menu had a lot of sandwiches and pub grub. we had grilled cheese and tater tots, which were great! we will definately return.

Nice Chill Spot!!!

Me and my boyfriend go here all the time and we enjoy the atmosphere and the people. At first I was a little nervous about going because we're African-American and the crowd there is majority caucasion, but after I got the feel for it, it was easy for me to relax. They have numerous of tv's, and arcade games (we love playing the ice hockey game). On Tues. they have ""All you can eat"" crab legs for $20!!! and the customer service is pretty average. You have a choive to sit outside or inside. The atmosphere is pretty dark but it's a nice place to chill w/out all the noise and the large crowds. This is our #1 place to go when we just want to relax. The pitcher of beers are very cheap (PBR:$6:50)!!! I don't drink but my BF does, so I usually get the lemonade or a glass of water.

Cold Beers, Good Music, No BS

I just moved to town and went to this bar on a whim before a movie. It was great. People of all types, strong crowd of regulars (the true sign of a good bar), and rock and roll music. I didn't try the food or the arcade games, but I'll definitely be back often. It sure beats some of the other poor excuses for bars around here.

Some of the other reviews give the impression that this place is ""intimidating"" or ""scary"" or a ""dive"". I did not get that vibe at all. In fact, just the opposite. I definitely felt comfortable and welcome here. I guess people who are uptight or rich might not like the Highlander, but that's fine by me!

Changing my review from bad to decent.

I was very hard on this place the first time around. Since that review, I have moved to Midtown. My friends and I like this place on the weekdays. I first drank at this bar on a Saturday night. The difference between the two evenings is incredible. The music during the weekdays does not cut through your brain. The place is quieter and attracts a more neutral crowd. Playing Drunk, which is just a form of Bingo, is great on Monday nights. The Drunk announcer keeps the game exciting and is really cool. The service is great, and the people are funny. During the weekends this place may attract some people who are a bit more annoying. The people are a gothic type people, who seemed to be a bit washed up, and the music on the weeked, is way too friggin loud. I love loud music, but to the point where I can't here the people next to me seems a bit excessive. The place has its positives and negatives, but overall this place is a nice relaxing place, and remember I feel that this is the case only on the weekdays.

Wannabe Douchebags who can't fit in anywhere else

hmmmm..... The pitcher prices are not bad. The bulk of the staff is ok too. As far as the people who hang out there.... well, it's your basic strip mall-gone-south-fare. It's not hard to open a place that caters to 30-something washed up goth kids. I mean, there is a f-ing football game playing on the big screen for f-s sake and a bunch of tattooed old people playing bingo. Fun times! Who loves gay? Mid town does. Take it there!

Anyways, the food is ok bar fare, the service is a ""mediocre"" at best. But what bar can't fry up some mozz cheese sticks? But wrapped in pasta? Novel! Amazing!

As if midtown needed anything gayer?!?!?!?!?!

What about rockabilly tattoos? Got
