Went here for the Atlanta Science Festival comedy show and concert and thoroughly enjoyed it. It's a quaint old building with a full bar, pool tables, and a small stage upstairs. The kitchen was closed for renovations during my visit, but I'm under the impression they would typically have a full menu. Overall, a pretty fun spot.

I would never go there for breakfast lunch or dinner. Atmosphere and decor very lacking. But I go every year for the party when the ReBirth Bass Band from New Orleans makes its yearly visit. Standing room only, very few seats but who can sit when ReBirth plays

Spent the evening at Smith's Olde Bar for a nice dinner with friends and some live music outside. When we arrived we quickly figured out that Smith's was the HQ for the Bama fans here in Atlanta for the SEC Championship game. It was standing room only inside, very large with lots of room but full. We sat outside on... More

Went here for a Steelers game in Jan 2016. Great bar, great people, and a GREAT place to watch my hometown team. Didn't get any food, but it looked pretty solid. Even without the game that was on, it looks like it would be a solid place to hang out with multiple rooms, one for live music and a few... More

I went there for the music. That's it. Not the food(although i hear it's good) nor the atmosphere( totally funky stairwell), it was the awesome bands they have playing there that night.

Went there for the first time this week to support a friend's album release. They have great rotating craft beers on tap. Ok bar food selection. Our double burger was very good. Upstairs and down they had 3 new artists do an hour set each for 3 hours of entertainment for the $12 cover charge. They also have pool tables,... More

Went to Smith's Olde Bar for a light dinner last weekend. While I do really like the establishment from a bar and entertainment perspective, the food leaves a lot to be desired. Eating area was so dark, you could barely see......which may actually have been a good thing. We had a few appetizers (fried mushrooms were decent, but onion rings... More

We enjoyed seeing Corb Lund in the upstairs music room at Smith's Olde Bar. It's an old place that needs some up-keep done. It's pretty grungy and I think some of the clientele like it that way. The stage is set up great with easy coming and going. The bar upstairs is only partially stocked so you have to go... More

I have lived in the ATL burbs for 25 years and have always heard that Smith's was a great live music venue. I was not lied to. This was an awesome venue for music. The band I saw was in the upstairs room and I saw another band playing in a very small room off the main bar. Such a... More
