Gordon Biersch Brewery Restaurant
3242 Peachtree Rd NE, Atlanta, GA 30305
The food and the beer are good. And the happy hour crowd is a virtural sampling of the surrounding Buckhead young professionals. While the culinary offerings are quite good, the service leaves much to be desired. Working nearby, I've spent numerous lunchs, dinners and happy hours at this place and bad service has become a running joke among my coworkers.
490 E Paces Ferry Rd NE, Atlanta, GA 30305
Top notch restaurant. A swanky, modern mid-town feel in the middle of Buckhead. Everything from the salad to the entree, to the desert were outstanding. I had the oppournity to sample several dishes and they were all great. The portions are on the small side and the prices are on the higher side of moderate. But overall, it's well worth the experience. This is a great place for a nice romantic dinner for a special occasion.
Five Paces Inn
41 Irby Ave NW, Atlanta, GA 30305
If you've got friends in low places, then this is the place for you. The feel of 'Five-Paces' is definitely that of a hole-in-the-wall dive bar and the crowd will remind you of a 1990 UGA fraternity party aged appropriately for 2002. But overall, it's a great place. The bartenders are the best in town and if you take the time to get to know some of the locals, you just might have made a friend for life.
Golden Buddha Chinese Restaurant
1905 Clairmont Rd, Decatur, GA 30033
This is a great little chinese restaurant. There is nothing exceptional about it that makes is top-10 on anyone's list, but if you are looking for good food, good service, and reasonable portions at a reasonable price, then this is your place. Lunch is quick and a great place for a relaxed business dinner.
Sushi Mania Restaurant
3855 Peachtree Rd NE, Atlanta, GA 30319
Good restaurant and fast service. Food is good and reasonably priced. Very convenient if you live in the north buckhead, brookhaven, chamblee area. The crows here are almost non existant, so if you are waiting 1-1.5 hrs for food at Soto, this might be worth a 5 min drive north on Peachtree.
