We tried this restaurant for the first time on November 7. This is located in Smyrna village square. Parking is not easily accessible.
We were there for an event. The service was slow, very slow. When we did receive our food, it was cold. We had the tossed salad and the fried green tomato with jalapeno pimento cheese topped with a small amount of greens and a tomato chutney. The salad was overdressed. The tomato was delicious, but I would have loved to see more than one slice. Dinner was brisket macaroni and cheese, and vegetarian lasagne. The food was cold. I got my macaroni and cheese replaced, but the lasagne was cold and a mess. The portion size for the macaroni and cheese was small. Not good eats.


I have always enjoyed my time at Atkins Park Tavern... the ambiance is great. It's not dark like Ormsby's (it's sister property), but it does have an old world feeling with a great patio. It's located in Smyrna Market Village which is darling in itself, so this restaurant fits in perfectly. It's one of the best local spots to check out in Smyrna!

Atkins Park has wonderful modern southern cuisine including several New Orleans inspired dishes. The service isn’t the best but the food definitely makes up for it. If you’re a big cocktail person, be prepared to give instructions to the waiter. I’d advise sticking to just beer and wine. They also host an annual crawfish festival each Spring which is a lot of fun and not to be missed.

I have had several things here and they have all been good. Service is always good and the drink prices are reasonable. It's one of the best choices in the Smyrna Market Village and nearby area.

What's the fuss about?

Four stars for the atmosphere, 2 stars for the food.

I have eaten here twice (with a group) and have been completely underwhelmed.

The 2nd time I thought I would play it safe and get a burger. Who can mess up a burger?

It was dry as a bone, over cooked, and there was a fair amount of gristle.

I didn't finish it.

None of my friends ooh'ed and ahh'ed over their food either, so I can't figure out why so many people love it.

The restaurant itself is nice and enjoyable.

So So Experience

Judging by the reviews below, everyone loves this place. But, I had brunch with friends there the other day and I was less than impressed. Food was cold and service so so.....I will definately give it another try though.

Love this place!

My husband and I thought Atkins was a great place! The atmosphere was relaxed and the food was awesome. I got their special BLT and my husband got there buffalo chicken sandwich. Both were excellent, but what topped the experience was our dessert. It was a phenominal warm apple stuffed pastry on top of vanilla ice cream and swimming in caramel. Definitely save room for this! We highly recommend Atkins.

Great food and atmosphere

Went to Atkins Park for the first time this weekend with family visiting from out of town. We all loved the food- especially the mussels, pueblano queso, jumbayala, and burgers. We sat on the porch which was covered and heated and very comfortable despite the chilly temperatures. We will definitely return for the great food, drink specials, and relaxing atmosphere.

Great Bar and Great Food, Wonderful for Smyrna!

Smyrna is on an upswing right now, and Atkins Park Tavern is at the helm. Going out on a Friday night with friends here is a real pleasure. The food is delicious and exceptionally prepared, and the service has never let us down. Whether you order just a burger or a full entree, you will not be disappointed. My favorite entree is the Boursin Filet, and for lunch I love to get the Shrimp Po-Boy. This is DEFINITELY a place worth looking into if you are around Smyrna and looking for a great time and great food. I like to take clients for lunch here as well. Definitely recommend it, don't miss out!



Lovin' the fast food

Great service and good food at a fun place to eat. Love being greeted when we come through the door. Prices are great and portions are large.

I have eaten there twice and won't go back.

Most of the good reviews on this site are probably from people who live in Smyrna, where there aren't very many decent food options outside chains. The Virginia Highlands version of this place is a interesting bar with a good history. The Smyrna store lacks any of that appeal.

The food is expensive. The jambalaya is overspiced. The fried chicken is underspiced. The sides tend to be overcooked. The service is inattentive. Bottomline, if you're from out of town, drive into Atlanta.

Atkins Park is Awesome!

WOW! Atkins Park is clearly part of the changing Smyrna landscape and a wonderful culinary oasis to the area. Recently we stopped in for a late lunch and ate outside on the patio. The fountain across the street made for a pleasant cafe-like setting. Our server, Lauren, was prompt, pleasant and helpful. She informed us that the gumbo was spicy which only encouraged me to order a bowl instead of a cup. My partner ordered the meatloaf and I chose the hazelnut Greek stripped bass. Lauren confirmed that both were popular choices.

The gumbo was authentic to its Creole origins and validated Chef Hamlin?s Louisiana background and training. The Andouille and chicken flavors reigned supreme over a complex blend of supporting vegetables all held together in a medium rich tasting roux. Eating it was like taking a trip to New Orleans. ""Laissez les bons temps roule!""

The meatloaf was moist and tender and had a light texture and taste. The sweet barbeque glaze complimented this comfort food to a starring role. The bass was also delicious with just the right balance from the tomatoes, capers and artichokes. The fish was moist and flakey with a thin golden crust and a very subtle taste of olive oil. What a treat! The portions for everything were just right and so was the seasoning. Nether of us needed to use any salt or pepper throughout the meal. I was looking forward to my next visit to Atkins Park even before my check came.

Good food, good service.

Great food and service, we really enjoy their Sunday Brunch too. Only complaint would be the noise level sometimes gets crazy since the rooms are not carpeted. Otherwise, it's definitely a go...

User review by aussieyank

Finally we get to enjoy this great food prepared by Rusty in Smyrna. For those of you who haven't been to Smyrna lately, it is NOT your ""grandmother's Smyrna"" anymore. All of the restaurants/bars in the Market Village area have created a NEW SMYRNA and a place to see and be seen.

Dinner with friends

We had a Birthday Dinner last week at Atkins Restaurant. There were eight of us and we had a ball! The food was great! Everyone liked their choices. Our server, Heather, was over the top with wonderful service for each of us. The restaurant was clean and very charming. In fact, we are going back tomorrow to celebrate another birthday. What a great addition to the metro area.

A Little bit of Yummy in Smyrna

We were very pleased the two times we have dined there - first for brunch and then for dinner a couple of weeks later. The brunch menu had so many wonderful choices that I just couldn't decide. I was disappointed with the lack of hot tea selection, but the food was everything I was looking for. Service for brunch was helpful and attentive. Dinner was also filled with many good choices. My dining partners and I shared our meals and everything was good. Service was quite a bit slow at refilling drinks and coming by to check on us during dinner, but other than that it was an enjoyable evening. Great value for your money!

Horrible Owner

Myself, my husband and a good number of our friends loved this restaurant until we were in there one night and the OWNER (not just a manager) turned an evening of bad luck into a nightmare. Without going into all the details, we would chalked the evening up to them having an off night until we tried to have a civil conversation with the owner who was very curt, rude and down right mean. We didn't even want any kind of reimbursement all we wanted to do was simply point out their mistakes because I truely believe that if management doesn't know there's a problem it will never get fixed. The food was always very good (except the veal) but if you happen to have any problems with the service or the food good luck.
