Mollie B's is an experience! Warmly greeted and welcomed by all the staff, the restaurant offers an outstanding view of Atlanta's latest landmarks! The scope and size of the stadium are astonishing but the restaurant is comfortable and sophisticated. Food was delicious and the staff was quite attentive. I do suggest you make a reservation and in our case, I noted that we had a birthday girl with us to honor. The restaurant made a lovely presentation of a piece of cake for our girl and two staffers even sang. It was just such a charming touch and memorable for our friend. Go for the fun of the experience and enjoy a very special luncheon. In fact, I have been twice in six weeks for those very reasons to celebrate two special occasions. Hope to return soon! More

The food was to amazing. My absolute favorite so far was the fried deviled eggs. Large potions I had the fried chicken. Greens, Mac and cheese and candied yams so much food was able to take home. For desert I had the peach cobbler my sister had the salmon, mash potatoes and green beans she loved it. And her desert was banana pudding very good. I am mad at myself that it took so long to finally get there. Food was so good already made reservation again. Only thing is felt bad for the people who had their children with them the restaurant is only missing a children’s menu but you can order a platter and children can share it’s that much food. Oh and I had the Rum lunch made to perfection 😊 More

The drinks were very tasty and you will received the Southern Hospitality you expect in the South. I loved the fried chicken, very juicy and well seasoned and the drinks were divine. But the waffle wasn't very warm and a bit too chewy for my liking. Our server, Dai'Ja, was phenomenal and made it a very pleasant dining experience. More

I had my bday event here it was supposed to be at 11pm with a 15 mins grace period. However, I was running alil late and actually got there at 11:24pm and they still let me sit down with my party. Omg I had the best time of my life and so did my friends. The sections are small so if my complete party would of showed up there weren't have been no where for them to sit down. But the drinks was good music was slick on repeat but the crowd was lit . I enjoyed myself. And they do smoke in there so if your not a smoke be aware. More

We loved Big Kahuna's so much we went there three times, in the week we were there for work. Casual and fun environment. However, it was deliciousness of the food that really brought us back. Queso was almost drank from the bowl. The grilled chicken for the Cali Mex sandwich was cooked to perfection. Tacos were superb. They were super busy the Wednesday night we were there, and we could tell the staff was a little stressed, but we still felt they did a great job and the best they could. Will visit again in ever back in Atlanta. I never write reviews but had to, since I'm already missing the place. More

Menu online was out of date. See new menu (8/18) attached. They had the main restaurant area closed and only the bar was open. No hostess, but the bartender was able to have someone check me in for my reservation. I was 1 of 3 people there when I went in. I got the butternut squash ravioli with butter sage sauce. The sauce was a little heavy. Other than that, everything was great. Bartender made my specialty drink and it was perfect. More

Atlanta natives are hiding some secrets. Their beloved pimiento cheese, the pâté of the South, was invented in New York.[1] Can anyone prove that the first batch of fried green tomatoes was whipped up in Atlanta?[2] There are far more peanuts grown in Georgia than peaches[3], and frying was a West African innovation rather than a Southern one.[2] Traditional favorites still satisfy, but the Atlanta dining scene is enjoying more global influence than ever before. Buford Highway, which runs through the center of town, boasts 20 separate international communities.[4] As a result, you’re just as likely to find snow crab chawanmushi or mughlai paratha on the menu as shrimp and grits or fatback-fried catfish. Whatever you sink your teeth into, it will be served up with homey Southern hospitality.
