We are big brewpub fans.While visiting Atlanta we have had many good experiences at 5 Seasons.Gordon Biersch, on the other hand, was an unmitgated disaster.A sign of bad karma was the valet parking attendant shooing us away because the lot was full.This was made more curious the sandwich sign in front that read ""immediate seating available.""In fact, the joint was empty.Our server, a friendly little thing, had little to contribute, advising that the ""pretzel coated tilapia"" was ""very popular"" and the Mexican egg rolls were ""nice.""Believe me, the food was not worthy of being on an Appleby's menu! More on that later.It appeared that the kitchen and wait staff were in a hurry to get home, though we sat down at the table at 8:00 p.m.No sooner had our drinks come that we had our appetizers.Before my wife could even ingest a spoonful of her crab and lobster bisque our entrees were delivered.Recognizing that our meals would languish under a heat lamp as we ate our appys (or being coated in saliva by the woeful wait staff) we did not send them back.When asked if the contemporaneous delivery of drinks, appetizers and entrees was how this dive operates, the waitress politely offered ""oh, I did not realize the entrees would come out so quickly."" The food is easy to characterize: industrial.My fish was no more than a dry filet coated in crushed nuts and bread crumbs that tasted like it had been prepared in a company kitchen many weeks earlier, frozen and reheated for me.Pretzel crust?Maybe I don't know what a pretzel is.The pizzas were, well, the kids picked at them if only not to waste food.My wife's fish and chips were dry and tasteless.Are you listening Mrs. Paul?Finally, this is a brew pub.So, what about the beer.The flight of beers was tepid and uninspiring as if on a Milwakee's Best brewery tour.During Ocktoberfest, yet.The bock beer resembled something served at a fraterninty party--the next morning.In short, Go to 5 Seasons and be grateful you did.
