Editorial review from Citysearch 11/26/2012

I came here last Friday afternoon, and I couldn't have been more pleased! We arrived around 2pm, and were seated on the patio right away. The patio is covered, and is heated, with a Winter Ski Lodge theme. Quite unique, and definitely pleasant. They even supply pillows and blankets on the benches on the patio!\r \r We were greeted by a very pleasant server, who offered several unique cocktails, and we ordered The Bloody Best. It's literally a 32 oz. Bloody Mary topped with steak, tater tots, blue cheese stuffed olives, pepperoncinis, lemon, and lime. I was quite impressed. Not only was it amazing on the eyes, but it was actually GOOD. You can tell they didn't use cheap bloody mary mix!\r \r We started with an order of the Buffalo Totchos, which is a HUGE plate of tater tots covered with Buffalo chicken, blue cheese dressing, buffalo sauce, and blue cheese crumbles. They were AMAZING. My date and I had more than enough to share, and definitely felt like we got our money's worth.\r \r The next part is the best. My date ordered the Ahi Tuna Salad, and it was great. I tried some, and the tuna was flavorful, the salad was fresh, and quite delicious. I had the Southern Comfort Burger, and let me tell you. It totally lives up to its hype. It's a burger. Stuffed with macaroni and cheese. Topped with cheddar cheese, and this Southern Comfort BBQ sauce. The sauce was slightly sweet, and somewhat spicy. All in all, this burger was HEAVENLY. As it was served with a side item as well, I opted for the onion rings. THEY WERE HUGE. And quite delicious! The meal was so huge, I couldn't finish it. Definitely worth the money spent.\r \r Our server, throughout it all, was attentive, yet not obnoxious. He had several other tables as well, but our drinks never went empty. He offered us other drinks after we had slain that bloody mary monster, but we were quite tapped when all was said and done. A delight, all in all.\r \r The manager stopped by after we'd gotten our entrees to ask how everything was. She hung around for a moment, and chit chatted with us. She was quite personable as well. This place really seems to know how to impress!\r \r I will definitely be back to The Nook. This place has it going on! It's rare, especially in Atlanta, to find great food paired with good service that doesn't seem contrived and fake. This place is a rare breed. I can't wait to enjoy their Sunday Funday! $2 Mimosas! more

Really a review on the Dogwood... 4/19/2010

Okay, lets get something straight. This isn't really a review on Piedmont Park, it's really a review on festivals. I love Piedmont Park... and can't really come up with much (or well, anything) bad to say about it. But I have to be honest about Festivals. I don't get them. All the artist markets, good vendors, and expensive beer... I can't figure out why 30,000 people would really want to show up for this. Am I missing something? I'm happy I went to the Dogwood Festival over the weekend, but only so I know I can cross that off my list of things to do. There are so many people -- I'd rather just get a beer with a few friends on the porch of some casual restaurant. But maybe that's just me. Pros: Lovely park. Cons: Overcrowded festivals are not my thing more

No Better Place 2/24/2010

I love this park. Let me tell you how much time I spend there: a lot. I was there Friday night for over an hour. I got up Saturday morning and went back for an hour. I'm there several times a week after work for at least an hour each time. The ""Active Oval"" is my area, and the main place I jog. The dirt-trodden, gravel-laden surface of its track makes it easy on the knees for long runs. And if you get bored there, just venture out onto the track that lazily meanders around the entire park. \r This park is also great for people watching, as there is never a shortage of folks enjoying the park. It never fails that some quirky little guy or girl is galavanting around the park on roller blades, cute couples are enjoying picnics, families are strolling around, and people are walking their dogs. It's a veritable fun-fest, and it's hard NOT to be happy here. Just the other day a mom was pitching a whiffle ball to her son, and it came rolling down the hill to me. I threw the ball back to her and she said thanks, of course, because people are nice here. The surrounding neighborhood is great too--I love the way these people live. I spotted a couple and their kids on their front porch, finger painting and blasting Patty Griffin on the stereo. Once I was walking after a run and passed by an older woman--in one hand she had her dog on a leash and in the other, a large glass of wine. My kind of neighborhood.\r \r The park itself has so much to offer: a swimming pool, a track, a lake, a playground, tennis courts, a dog park, and of course plenty of green space for general outdoorsy merriment. \r \r It's impossible to be unhappy here. There's just something uplifting about being surrounded by people enjoying the best (and free) things in life. And perhaps it's the endorphis, but sometimes when I'm running around the park, I get so giddy I can barely contain myself. I look up, see those huge sparkling buidings over the treetops, and (seriously) want to go skipping around the track. So far, I've controlled that urge; but, if on your next visit you see a crazy lady skipping around the track, that would be me. Come skip with me. more

Nice park for people watching, go elsewhere for a dog park 12/20/2008

It is a great local park for a picnic or group gathering. It's a great place to people watch,too. However, you should be careful of the high number of serious roller bladers. Also some people might describe it as a dog heaven. I don't. The dog park at piedmont tends to have a mixed crew of owners. Some are mindful of their dog's behavior, but there are some that will go into the park with a known aggressive dog, un-neutered dog or dogs in heat. Some people do not watch their dogs while in the park. This can lead to many problems. Case in point--the chow dog that was attacked/killed a couple of months ago in the park. If you love your dog and want to go here, take a taser gun. more

Really Great Park 7/26/2008

Piedmont Park is like a little Central Park in Atlanta. There is a really great distance you can run. I also really love the dog park area. The park is always very clean and I always feel very safe running there. more

Best Park in the city of Atlanta 11/27/2007

This is a beautiful park for walking/jogging, sightseeing or picknicking. I personally do not like the fact that people allow their dogs to run around without leashers. If you are a dog lover - this is the place to see a fashion show of every breed of dog. There are plenty of benches and green spaces to spread a blanket, sit back, relax and enjoy the sights. If you have young children beware because there are plenty of gay/lesbian couples enjoying the park as well. more

Loved it. 11/9/2007

My boyfriend and I went to piedmont park around 11pm on a saturday. We were unsure whether or not the park was still open but it was. We didn't explore too far in the park because we saw some swing benches overlooking water before it got too late. I loved it though, very peaceful and quiet. It was the first time I went and I really enjoyed it. Hopefully one day I'll go again with my boyfriend when it's day time and explore a bit. more

The Epicenter Of Atlanta! 10/4/2006

Growing up in Atlanta during the 60's, the Sunday afternoon drive was a ritual. My parents would drive us through Piedmont Park, around the lake--Yes, back then you could drive around the lake. People of all races, backgrounds and sexual orientations, would all come together, for a Sunday in ""The Park"". And sometimes on Saturday's, we would go swimming in the pool. Phillip Law Olmstead designed the park, as well as Central Park in NYC. Today it's strickly pedestrian friendly, pets included, and continues to bring all Atlantan's together. It's the heart of the city! Pros: Heart Of City Escape, No Automobile's! more

It's the ""City"" Park 3/27/2004

All of Atlanta migrates to this park any warm winters day with walker and runners. An explosion of life and nature. Great open spaces and lots of people watching. Pros: EZ 2 get 2, always a cafe close, Great date park Cons: , Aggressive homeless, rolr blade/skate brds more

It's a pretty sweet park 8/21/2002

As a recent transplant to the Midtown area, a dog owner and a budding exercise acolyte, I'm fast falling in love with Piedmont Park. Good jogging/walking track, nice scenery, great view of the Atlanta skyline, cool pet area. And it's close to my home, mellow mushroom, the highlander...I haven't been excited about a patch of real estate since I was a young 'un exploring the woods across the street from my house (eventually developed into a mall, alas). more

Pooch Pub 8/8/2002

Favorite event: Bark in the Park--ASO's free dog-friendly concert. Also check out the roller skating jammers. more

a good overall park 7/26/2002

I like Piedmont Park because it has a lot available. Soccer fields, a public swimming pool, a little pond where kids can fish, running/cycling/rollerblading trails, and lots of area to just do whatever. It's becoming more family oriented and is a great place to take a picnic or something. more

Piedmont Park 7/23/2002

I live around the park, I chose it because it is the cool place to live. You can be yourself and have a good time. Pros: Great to rollerblade more

So many sights to see! 7/23/2002

Cenvenient to everything. Some areas are so new and beautiful. Constant renovations going on to make it even better! more

Keeps getting better 6/10/2002

Yup, the grass really is greener on the other side of 10th street. With the recent improvements to the park, it seems that every time I go, the place is looking better. Coming here on a warm, sunny afternoon to watch the city take a breather from its fast-paced life. more

My Favorite Place in Atlanta 5/15/2002

With its constant frenzy of activity, Piedmont Park is the true epicenter of Midtown. I relocated to Atlanta in July of 2001 and I'm so glad I made the decision to live near the park. It's not the kind of place that ""gets old."" It just keeps getting better. I only wish it was bigger and that Atlanta had more green spaces like this. more
