Chef Ramsey would Have a heart attack!! 4/23/2009

We should have turned around at the door when we noticed the door propped open and the dirty tables first thing in the morning. The service was beyond horrible and the host/owner/waiter couldn't keep up with service because of his many breaks outside to smoke with the valet guy. The food was beyond terrible. They actually use Easy-Mac. Although I love Easy-Mac, I don't expect to be served it at a restaurant for those prices. The water actually spilled water on both the table and the floor and did not bother to clean either of them up. I JUST DON'T GET IT. WHY OPEN A RESTAURANT Pros: location Cons: Food, Service, Cleanliness more

Come Hungry, leave frustrated! 4/19/2009

Apparently, I visited this so called beloved spot on the wrong day, at the wrong time. I visited their new location on Piedmont (old location Monroe Dr.) When I tell you there was literally one person unsuccessfully managing a full Sunday breakfast crowd...and I mean fumbling between the hostess booth, waiting tables, and helping the kitchen...it was an utter DISASTER! I could only imagine the quality of food that had been sacrificed, the service that had been completely unprofessional...and the customers that left hot-headed and hungry. I even called to make a reservation and instead of the lone bartender telling me they were understaffed and the wait and service might be unusual, he said, ""See you soon."" As IF!? I called back just to say I'm never coming back. SO long A&G! Pros: Cute spot Cons: Nobody works there, you can't get service! more

Cute and Delicious! 12/24/2008

I love this place! Very cute and homey. I've been there several times and once for a rehearsal dinner. I've never been disappointed!\r \r You HAVE to try the fried green tomatoes! Pros: Ambience, comfort food done classy Cons: I really hate valet parking more

big improvement 7/25/2008

i totally disagree with the prior posting. i recently made my way back to agnes and muriel's and had a fantastic experience. the food was great...i had the bbq pork sandwich with fries...the pork was smoky and moist and it was topped with crispy fried onions. yum!! my friend had the crabcake salad. it was a really big salad, so she couldn't finish it, but she had every bite of crabcakes. the service was great too. i've been here in the past and the servers looked a mess...this is a hug improvement. also the cleanliness has com a long way. i'll be back! Pros: great food, great service more

New ownership means a lot to learn 6/27/2008

Agnes and Muriel's has always been one of my favorite campy soul food places to take out-of-towners...a boast which was recently betrayed by today's lunch order revealing a dry, diminutive fried chicken breast accompanied by desiccated and tasteless mac and cheese and overcooked ribs. What happened? This is not the A&M's that I so previously adored! \r \r What happened was new ownership, our server related. Though I expressed my disappointment over the quality of the food to him, the response was a suggestion I speak with management, to which I responded, ""You tell her."" (And if he did, I'll never know...she certainly did not personally investigate). It was only after I was told - some 10 minutes after I ordered - that the signature raspberry and peach cobbler had accidentally not been baked that I was offered two other desserts on the house - a gesture that earned the second star in my rating. That dessert, by the way, some sort of butterscotch cream pie, was likewise a disappointment: pure sugar and no flavor. To top it off, the coffee was bitter yet boring and obviously made some hours earlier.\r \r That being said, the server at least offered an attempt at an explanation, that the kitchen was unusually busy. Even so, any better restaurant would have made a more heartfelt attempt at reconciliation. With all the great eateries in Atlanta, there's no need in my book to offer the new Agnes and Muriel's a second chance, not unless the previous owners come back. If this is like any other day at the new A & Ms - busy despite bad food - its success is riding on the coattails of its predecessors. They better cook something up good real soon or that reputation will spoil faster than ground chuck in the hot Georgia sun. Pros: Same goofy but lovable ambience Cons: Dry, flavorless food more

Liar Liar 2/18/2008

I had some friends visiting from out of town and took them to this very cute restaurant. Two of us had been before. Of the two of us - they had taken my favorite item off the brunch menu and they had taken her favorite item off the menu (the macaroni bites). Fine. Okay. Streamlining for brunch (their busiest time, apparently) - I get it. However, I found it to be extremely rude that they told us specifically we could not get the items we wanted (and gave us a rather long explanation why not), yet five minutes after we order we see them carrying a steaming plate of the supposedly unavailable item to a table behind us. It was obvious that the other diners were friends of the staff because one of the cooks came to talk to them. more

Southern food at a fun spot 11/30/2007

This place is wild. We kind of felt like outsiders walking in, I felt like we missed a sign on the front door that says local only. Our waiter was friendly though, and once you have taste the food you don't care about anytihng else. I had my first taste of fried okra here and I have been trying to replicate the perfection of Agnes & Muriel's version ever since. The menu is a real southern menu, not cajun or creole, just real southern. I love it. more

Just good food! 8/2/2007

I have never had a bad meal at Agnes & Muriels. Every time I go I wonder why I do not go more often....the food is very tasty and the service is very friendly. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone! The atmosphere is fun as well! Pros: great food and service more

This Magnolia Is Wilted! Confused Service & Menu! 5/31/2007

We recently went to Sunday Bruch at A&M, the first time in almost ten years. What was once a hot spot, under the former owner Glen Powell and his best friend, is now a has been flower of high kitsch. Still crowded, with those who don't really know better, it's just mass confusion. The menu still has Southern sounding items, but nothing even close to The Colonnade or Mary Mac's. Food is served luke warm, messy, and just barely -well whatever. Don't get me wrong, you can still get a buzz with a very good Bloody Mary, Mary! Pros: Of Course, It's In Trendy Midtown! Cons: Southern(?)Food! Service! more

Good brunch 4/30/2007

The food is pretty good. However, it is a bit crowded on the weekends. The tables are really close together and its loud. Its hard to manuver through the place. I would not recommend it for parties consisting of more than 2-3 people. If you are going for brunch on Sunday, be prepared to wait. \r I did like the retro decor and the service was good! Pros: Good food, good service Cons: Crowded , cluttred , and loud more

Hip throwback has great southern cooking! 11/20/2006

Hip throwback has great southern cooking! This place is one of kind with its kitchky 60's & 70's Barbie-ish decor. But the food is worth the trip! Traditional southern fare with a flare. Greens and Okra are great. Desserts are inventive. more

Fun and Funky. 9/16/2006

This place is great to take anyone visiting the south for a funky twist on good southern favorites. The fried green tomato BLT is great and the shrimp and grits are not to be missed. Also try the coca cola baby back ribs since you are in coca cola land. The desserts are huge but so yummy you won't want to share. more

Dissapointed 2/12/2006

This used to be one of the better places in the city to eat. The exterior was interesting and retro and now looks like a junkyard. The last meal here was gross. The mustard chicken was so over sauced that it was inedible. The sides and appetizers were greasy. The staff is getting younger and less capable and seems bothered by the patrons, but the waitress that would criticize your selections and take your plate before you finished is no longer employed. The bloody marys are always good cheers to the barkeep! Pros: different Cons: bad food more

Late Lunch 8/10/2005

We had a late lunch there and it was very good. I had the Fried Tomato BLT and it was very good. My husband had the fried chicken and it was good too. We really enjoyed the sides. Fried okra is a must have! The server was inexperienced, but attentive and had a great attitude! The menu has a lot of options and it was difficult making a choice. We will go back! more

Sweet Potato Fries 8/6/2005

Nobody does them better. Add to that friendly service, delicious veggie plates, and one of the most fun atmospheres in Midtown. more

I bring all my out of town guests here 6/26/2004

Southern food meets yuppie, a little bit anyway. I am a Yankee who moved down to ATL. I bring all my guests here because the food has always been great. The servers are fun and friendly. The fried green tomatoes are, from what I hear, the best in town, however, from experience. The alcoholic drinks are not good at all. This place is a must! Pros: Great food, Great atmosphere, Reasonably priced more

love this place 3/28/2004

This restaurant is one that you search for. It has so much character. The buttermilk chicken is the best you will ever taste and the banana pudding is to die for. Try this place and you will love it. Pros: atmosphere, taste Cons: , tables to close more

Food has gone to hell 10/4/2002

Breakfat should be an easy meal - unfortunately unimpressive food, cute setting. more

It's just like home... 9/5/2002

Comfort food and southern dishes rule the day at this funky, cozy, I-used-to-be-a-house-now-I'm-a-restaurant. Try the veggie platter--you pick 4 sides and that's your meal. Simple, but brilliant. My favorite combo is the mac and cheese, fried green tomatoes, sweet potato fries and green bean casserole. However, the kitchen can have off nights--just like at home, some nights mom just wasn't in the mood to dazzle. But when the kitchen is ""on,"" which is most of the time, the results are worth it. Valet or park on side streets; don't park in the strip mall lot next door, or they'll boot you. more

Even the plates don't match 7/26/2002

It's like eating in a funky version of your grandmother's kitchen - and everything is delicious. The fried chicken is excellent, of course. Don't miss the noodle kugel and sweet potato fries on the side! Pros: good location, valet parking, gay friendly Cons: a little expensive more
