We tried this restaurant last weekend. It was not so busy. We ordered an appetizer and it literally took 25 minutes before we say our server again; the food was at best okay, the service ruined it for us. We will give it one more chance at some point.
Pros: good food for a quick meal after a walk around the square. The bread pudding and coffee was awesome and the place was welcoming with tons of original artwork on the walls and tv monitors all over. <br> <br>Cons: very busy - hard to get the waitress for a coffee refill until you're almost or finished with your meal. They only had one waitress on staff the day I went. <br> <br>GH - grumpyhair dot wordpress dot com
with the addictive fish tacos you will be coming back anyway.....a lively joint with super service from the staff. great tunes, amazing key lime pie and tastey dinner specials. the folk art on the wall creates a nice touch as well. the defining reason the marietta square is making a comeback..check out their sister restaurant Simpatico, next door
Extremly rude service, I called to order lunch for my company. I explained to him who my company was and he thought I was soliciting him. He was extremely rude and in fact he hung up on me. I will take my order for 8 people and go elsewhere, I dont deserve to be treated the way the owner treated me here. My advice take your business someplace that values its customers.
Willie Rae's is a wonderful restaurant with a neighborhood feel. If you are looking for casual, consistant dining with items out of the ordinary this is the place to go. Their fish tacos are incredible, they are an appetizer but enough for a dinner. The art work by Lizzie is a great touch. I have gone several times in small and big groups and it is always a treat, not to mention the staff is always accomodating. The whole family is welcome. My friends from midtown even commented it was good enough to travel out of the perimeter for.
This is the cutest little restaurant! Everytime I go, I have the best time! The food is outstanding and the prices are very reseasonable, and you can also order off their next door neighbors menu as well, Simpatico (Italian). I love this place! The ambience is unbeatable! Come check it out, you will not be dissappointed!!!
Willie Rae's gumbo is divine! I eat it for lunch as often as possible. And next door, Simpatico is worth the drive to Marietta if only for their incredible wine deals. No Buckhead 300% markup here. and the food is always innovative and delicious. Servers are genuine and attentive. Get thee to the Marietta square!
