The long time popularity of this restaurant is a testament to its consistency and good food. It is always crowded and just the wait is a unique experience. There is a friendly bar where you can enjoy drinks until you hear your name and number announced over a loud speaker. The specials are posted on a black board as you... More

Since 1927, The Colonnade has delighted customers with great southern cooking! Their menu offers a wide variety to choose from and there is a nice bar area to relax while waiting for your table. They don't take reservations and don't seat incomplete parties. My longtime favorite entree is their Fried Shrimp!

Service initially was reasonably fast and cornbread and yeast rolls arrived quickly. I would rate them a B-. It took quite a while for... More

One of my top five in Atlanta. 15 or 16 differents types of fresh vegetables. Best fried chicken in Atlanta. On weekends they have prime rib which is the best in town. Great place and been here since 1927! Finaly started taking credit cards 6 months ago!
