The owner came to our table near the end of our dining experience. He asked us how we liked the pie. We actually were not very happy with it and told him we had tried better but it would be fine for the night (and explained our reasoning).

Terrible experience, why the positive reviews? Veggies trasted canned, fired chicken was greasy. Service unacceptable.

Spoke to owner, I think he said his name was Bill. Not at all apologetic, very defensive. Said we we're crazy

Sunday meal turned out horrific. Restaurant was empty. Could not believe a 23 Zazat rating. Creamed corn and black eyed peas tasted like canned. Brocoli casserole was not good Fried green tomatoes were greasy with no distince taste.

Southern style just the way I like it! The fried chicken that is drizzled with honey...the broccoli casserole and creamed corn soooo good...and finish it off with Coconut cream pie!

They advertise how they have gone green but they dont recycle or even compost. Normally I would not care but they say they are a leader in going green.

Greenwoods has a fantastic, quaint atmosphere in Roswell. The food is the classic home cooking of the south with greens, mac and cheese, fried chicken, broccoli casserole, etc. All of it is freshly made and tastes wonderful! The pies are a must...even if you have to take a slice home for later on. The meals will fill you up with plenty of leftovers to spare.

Haven't been here in awhile cuz we moved--but now that I saw it online--I am going next week, I miss it so much. Everything is good , but way to big of portions so you should really share an entree and all the fixins with a friend or plan on taking left overs. Service always excellent. Somtimes long wait but sit and chill in the country ambience.

Love this restaurant. I guess that's because I'm a crab cake lover being from Baltimore, and they have the very best crab cakes in Atlanta. They are really Maryland crab cakes. So, it's worth a trip there just for that. And it's a nice, friendly family restaruant.

Don't forget Greenwood's simply because it's a long-lived restaurant. Bill is there everyday with his welcoming smile and fine attention to quality and service. The prices and quality are especially important in this economic time when entertainment monies are really budgeted. I like that Greenwood's is open for lunch everyday so that I can dine whenever I want and not be tied into any closing time (and still have plenty to take home in a "doggy bag" to have a light supper). Even though I'm a bulgur wheat/yogurt kind of person, the freshly ground hamburger which fills the homemade sourdough roll with all the trimmings AND a vegetable side or the tasty fried catfish fillets with tartar sauce made daily along with the two vegetable sides are impossible to pass up. Even my Southern mom says they are the best she has ever put in her mouth. By the way, with reference to one of your reviews, Greenwood's DOES take credit cards and DOES make sweet tea. I especially like the personable service--a respite from some of the pouty, can't-be-bothered servers you normally encounter--the continuing quality, the emphasis on organic produce and meats and all enjoyed in the beauty and serenity of the gardens. BTW, those are old hours. Greenwood's is open Wed - Sunday from 11:30 to 9:00 or 10:00 pm (sorry I can't remember exactly but I do know they don't close after the usual lunch hours).

Cons: Have to know where to park (like across the street at the other restaurant)/I wish parents would keep their kids seated.

Greenwood's is a great place to go with friends and family for a home cooked meal. The prices are reasonable even if no sharing meals is allowed. They have outside seating and good desserts!

I was raised on southern food; my grandmother could make biscuits like nobody's business and that was just the beginning. I won't say that Greenwood's rivals my grandmother's cooking, but they do offer a much more updated southern taste. I've tried a couple of different dishes there and each have been very tasty. They don't put on aires when it comes to presentation, but they don't need to with the tasty dishes they put out. The atmosphere is eclectic and this place is definitely worth a visit.

Pros: Good "Updated" Southern Food, Atmosphere, Desserts

Cons: None

.

I really don't get why people seem to think so much of this place: I definitely didn't care for the "Californian" take on classic Southern cuisine (although I think the owner is actually from Baltimore). They don't even serve sweet tea! How can you not have sweet tea at a restaurant that supposedly specializes in Southern food?

I wanted the shrimp and grits, but they had run out of that, so I had the fried chicken. I found the lemon pepper batter to be unpleasantly sweet: the honey was more than just an accent. I prefer a classic, savory crust on my fried chicken. My husband had the meatloaf, which he said was okay, but not great. The place was crowded and the wait was over 45 minutes to get a table.

The only thing really worth eating was the pie: I had the coconut custard pie, and it was fairly tasty. My husband had a slice of apple pie, and that was decent as well. However, good dessert is not enough of an incentive for me to return.

I can't say it's the worst meal I've had in the metro area, but it was one of the most overrated. I hate to say it, but I suspect that a lot of the reviewers may be transplants who just don't know what good Southern food actually is! I keep searching for a meat-and-three veg place that will match some of the little places in my home state of South Carolina; I've heard Matthew's in Tucker is good, but their hours make it impossible for me to get there. Overall, I found Greenwood's to be a disappointing experience.

Cons: Crowded and completely overrated.

This is the best southern cookin in all of the metro atlanta area!!! The plum sauce duck could make you cry but make sure someone at the table orders the fried chickin. The service is consistantly good and the veggies are right from Mr. Greenwood's garden lot of the time. Go ready to eat, the portions are huge. The only thing lacking is the wine list, with such a amazing dish as the duck i wanted to drink a nice bottle of robust Oregon Pinot Noir.The owner would in no way budge on a corkage fee.All around A+++

We could take my out-of-town, 91 year old aunt anywhere. We took the chance and treated her and ourselves to a first-time visit to Greenwood's. My wife and I are 49 ... my son 15 ... Aunt Tinnie 91. That's 204 years of eating experience at one table ... and we all agreed - it's the best ever ! Aunt Tinnie says "Thank You Greenwood's !"

Very large portions and quality home cooked food will bring you back. Fried chcien is the highlight and made to order. Meatloaf was kind of plain but the pork chops were huge and delicious. All of the sides, like pinto beans, broccoli casserole, mashed taters, and cornbread were rocking. The menu suggests to leave the kids at home along with other little quirks. A nice import beer slection and the wine list was good this casual joint. Go get some country cooking and see for yourself.

The two of us were told 30 to 45 minute wait when we first arrived. I thought this was nuts since there were so many people waiting. However, I had never been there before and figured it must be a quick turn around. An hour and 10 minutes later we asked how much longer. We were told 15 minutes. During this time, we saw large parties who had come in after us being seated. An hour and 30 minutes later, my companion asked the host why we were told 30 to 45 minutes when he knew it would be longer. The host was then extremely rude. We left, and went to Aqua Blue where the service was excellent. Can't tell you how the food is, but the service is despicable.

First thing's first. Don't come here expecting to find crayons, mac n' cheese, or hayseed stereotypes. That's not southern. This is real, fresh-cooked southern comfort food without all the nonsense. Granted, the place is a bit of a dichotomy: the garden and pop and folk art make it seem kid-friendly at first glance, but youre really better off leaving the kids at home (as they suggest on the menu). Also, its a tad pricy (for gargantuan portions) and they dont take plastic, so bring cash.

The chicken is fried to order. Coated with honey and cracked black pepper, its usually stellar. Pot roast has been terrible of late. I usually opt for the fishes, meatloaf, or potpie. Serious sides include FRESH applesauce, honest-to-goodness broccoli casserole, and collards. For dessert the monstrous slabs of fresh pie get the headlines, and rightfully so, but dont overlook the luscious ice cream made onsite.

It took over 2 hours to get in and out of there. One of us ordered fried chicken,the menu warns 30 minute wait, 30 mins turned into an hour. The fried chicken was not very tasty....the honey dripping all over it was strange. The chicken pot pie had two hard frizbee disks as the pie....one on the bottom one on the top. The shrimp and cheese grits were good, as was the meatloaf. The broccolli casserole doesn't have rice in. There is NO sweet tea here. Southern style cooking with NO sweet tea? Come on. Ordered pie...believe it or not, the pecan pie was so salty it couldn't be eaten. The list of homemade icecream is endless and the pistacchio was good. The one redeeming thing in the ill fated visit was the waitress bought our desserts to try and compenstate for our horribly long wait for our meal

The chicken is fried skinless in a flavorless batter with a spicy sweet sauce poured over it. As part of her witty introductuion the waitress introduced herself as Hiedi Ho and told our 8 year old son that "he could call her Hiedi or Hiedi Ho but don't call me Ho." We do not think that this is appropriate. The price was high for large portion of rather ordinary food.

Southern food without the grease, southern hospitality without the caricature. A little tough to find, but follow Mapquest to be rewarded. Prepare for a wait, but in good weather the patio and herb/wildflower garden makes that palatable. Also prepare for no greens salads--the small kitchen in this converted house didn't have the refrigeration room available. Nightly specials are usual fresh seafood; a great standby is the plum-glazed rotisserie chicken. Wine and beer list is thoughtful though limited. Bill Greenwood's usually in the kitchen and is unmistakable. Waitstaff is attentive and exceptionally friendly and relaxed--don't come here if you prefer stuffy, haughty prim-and-proper attendants. If you can, save room for pie--fresh fruit in season, chocolate cream, etc. I'd suggest splitting one slice among 3-4. Oh, and always bring cash or checks--they've never taken credit cards, but they will take promises to pay without question or without a hint of suspicion.

Okay the people voting for chicken are obviously insane. How could a chicken chain possibly produce better fried chicken than cooked to order joint? Greenwood's is by far the best in the city. Do not hesitate to try this quirky establishment. but be prepared to wait.

Greenwood's is the best restaurant around, period. No reservations, so be sure to get there early unless you want to wait (which isn't so bad - check out the antique shop across the street or Bill Greenwood's gardens). The portions are huge, so you're getting two meals in one. Their fried chicken is honey- and pepper-dipped and totally unique; shrimp and grits, a special, could feed four. Try as many veggies as you can (especially the creamed corn and the sweet potatoes) and take home a slice of pie if you're too full to eat it right there. You won't regret it.

Better skip lunch if you're coming here for dinner. Go ahead and skip breakfast while you're at it. Portions are huge and incredibly tasty. Plump shrimp and creamy grits are a wonderful combination. Sea bass and fresh vegetables are other tasty favorites.
