Tried this place after a couple of recommendations and liked the service, prices, & menu selections. We tried a bunch of appetizers and entrees and all agreed that the food was good and some dishes very good. A couple of dishes were over salted in...MoreWe appreciate you stopping in to dine with us!

The Rotisserie Shop

Reviewed By Donna S - Woodstock, Georgia

The Rotisserie Shop is the best! You walk in the door and you're welcomed. The service is friendly and professional. I went at lunch and there were two menus, the regular menu and a special one that includes items that will feed you in a hurry. Not being in a rush, I ordered the Hot Alabama Chicken Sandwich. My mouth has never been that happy! Rotisserie chicken (a mix of white and dark) with buffalo sauce (just spicy enough), fried green tomatoes and pimento cheese spread on a soft toasted bun. Oh my goodness! Can you get any more Southern? A side of corkscrew macaroni and cheese that melted in your mouth. This was the best sandwich ever. Am I going back? Are you serious.....I'm getting into my car right now.

Capers Restaurant & Bar

Reviewed By AnnCBowen

Had lunch here today and throughly enjoyed it !!! Our waitress was wonderful . My husband and I both had salads that were delicious. This location is sooo different from the former location, ( really like former location better ), this location seems a little random . It is in a strip shopping center and very unassuming from the outside, but very attractive inside . Highly recommend, hope to visit again soon .

Fish Thyme

Reviewed By BeejieT - Atlanta

We went to Fish Thyme for a celebratory dinner, and everything was fantastic! Amongst us we had the flounder, teriyaki salmon, blackened shrimp, and grouper sandwich, not to mention the calamari and crab dip appetizers. Everything was incredibly delicious and perfectly prepared. I would also recommend the garlic mashed potatoes or Parmesan truffle fries for your side... oh and the dessert..... creme brûlée, key lime pie, lava cake, all delicious. But the Chocolate Charlotte... oh my gosh (plan to share it- so rich!!). The best part of the whole thing is the more than pleasant staff and, especially, Julia - your whole night will be that much better if she is taking care of you!!

Trackside Grill

Reviewed By Donna M - Venice

I met a friend and former co-worker for a relaxing lunch. My family and I have eaten here often. The service was excellent! The atmosphere was peaceful. The pimento cheese appetizer was delicious! The salad was good. My friend said her burger was good. My salmon was not good. It was old and smelled fishy. I did not notice at first due to the strong salad dressing, so I had eaten half of the small piece. I asked our server to make the chef aware. The response was the chef said she was sorry. Most restaurants would have taken the salmon off my bill since it was an add-on. I did not say anything further because of my friend. The prices at Trackside are high. The quality of food should be higher. Therefore, I had a mixed experience and won’t be rushing back because there are similar options in the area.

Copeland's of New Orleans

Reviewed By snickerdoodle205 - Atlanta, Georgia, USA

Can only give this three stars because it took so long. We got seated within a few minutes of our arrival 15 minutes or so but once we got to the table we waited for our drink order then waited again for appetizer order. It took 30 minutes before the appetizer ever showed up at the table! After we had our appetizer the server came back to check on us - apologized for it taking so long and then brought us some rolls.
It was 48 minutes from the time we sat down before we ever got our food. Once we got it it was good. My husband ordered the jambalaya pasta and I had the shrimp and mushroom pasta. We had to ask for refills on our drinks several times. If the service had been as good as the food I would’ve been able to get this more stars. $45

Breakfast & biscuits

Reviewed By Bill O - Kennesaw, Georgia

First visit after recently moving to the area. No wait staff. Order at counter, pick up your own food, pour your own drinks, and clean up after yourself. On a positive note, the biscuits were good. I don't like being critical but I expected more based on high reviews prior visiting.

Marlow's Tavern

Reviewed By Maggie R - Bluffton, South Carolina

Stopped here for an early dinner. Ordered Moscow mules; however they were not served in copper mugs and seemed watered down. The Asparagus fries were okay. Lightly breaded and served with an unremarkable sauce. I had the tavern salad with chicken. The menu states it is served with a citrus dressing; however, it was a light cream dressing with no trace of citrus. The wine pours were carefully measured and unremarkable. Not sure if I will return. The waiter put the appetizer on the wrong bill, but we just left it as presented. I think $40 is a bit much for a watered down drink, salsa dandy small pour of wine.
