The service was awesome as well as the food. The cup we had for our water was made out of metal and boy did it keep it cold :). The biscuits were warm and wonderful, I wish I would've been able to take some home!! The only down side is it

We went the day after Thanksgiving. The food was fabulous and the service was great.
I read the reviews and thought about not going. We were glad we went because it was a great evening.

I loved this restaurant! The whole premise was built around Scarlet's Aunt Pitty Pat. There a plenty of pictures from the movie Gone With The Wind too. I had Pork Tenderloin with curried Peanut Sauce which made my mouth do a happy dance!! It was topped with a curried peanut sauce and fresh peanuts. Also on my plate was a
sweet potato and apple dish that was to die for! I wish I had the recipe. My friend and I shared desserts so we could have more than one type. The Georgia Peach Cobbler and the Bourbon Street Bread Pudding were indescribably delicious!! If you are in Atlanta, you've got to eat here, I promise you won't be sorry.

Tucked away in downtown Atlanta, it's sometimes easy to miss Pittypat's Porch. But when you're in town - visiting Pittypat's is a MUST! They are easily the best restaurant in the Atlanta area if you are looking for traditional Southern cooking. The salad bar, the entree, the bread, the speciality drinks... everything is excellent. My favorite is the Bourbon Bread Pudding... you have to save room for dessert at Pittypat's! The atmosphere is great and the service is always second to none! Take the time to find it - it's a dining experience and I NEVER go to Atlanta without making time for dinner at Pittypat's Porch.

We went to Pittypat's Porch on August 31, 2010. This was a return to great memories for us. All of our trips to Atlanta included this restaurant for many years. We were immediately greeted by a host who found the perfect table for the two of us. The menu was explained in detail. All of the staff smiled, took care of us, and acted as if they were genuinely concerned and happy about us being there. And...the live music from the piano just topped it off!!! Even he looked up from the piano keys to greet us. The food was perfectly prepared along with the presentation. Totally out of this world!!!! We were constantly being monitored by the staff to make sure that we had enough of everything. This is a great place to eat, relax, and/or entertain. If we lived in Atlanta, we would have to go at least three times a month!

I don't understand the reviews on this place at all... This restaurant was great! If you like Gone with the Wind you'll definitely love this place.

The decor is very southern as is the ambiance...

Our waiter was great considering the place was PACKED and they were understaffed. We were in no way in a hurry so we didn't care.

To drink I had their moonshine punch which was very good!

For an appetizer we had Fried Green Tomatoes and they were so good! I could have just made a meal out of those! For dinner of course had to try the fried chicken and it came with yummy cornbread, muffins, or biscuits of your choice, mashed potatoes and gravy and a trip up to the sideboard which had a spread of several different Southern Salads. It was terrific!

To top the night off we had a piece of their Classic Pecan Pie which could have been legally termed a candy bar it was heavenly!

If your in Atlanta definitely check this place out! It's a great place to eat if your looking for a little bit of Country in the City!

Whoa, I forgot about this place. It's one of the first resturants I tried when I first came to Atlanta.

It is a bit difficult to find, since it is tucked away across from the Westin - so it is best to slow right going west on Andrew Young and watch your right until you see the sign. FYI, I am not sure if there is free parking.

When you come in, you are greet with a nice Southern, Antebelum environment (could be a good or bad thing, depending on what side your ancestors were during the Civil War and whether they were owned or not). From there, you walk downstairs and then get seated.

The food is quite good, AFAIR, no complaints with the service.

Damn I am surprised how badly the previous reviews slammed this place. I used to go here as a child with my very Southern mother when the Peachtree Plaza was just built.

I think this place is great if you are looking for good Southern Food in a very pleasant piano player filled surroundings.

Calling this place touristy is funny since it is surrounded by chain restaurants and is located in a very touristy area. Of course this place is touristy, but that still doesn't mean that it isn't good and it isn't like their web page says ' an Atlanta institution'.

I had a great time here. The restaurant is full of last century kitchen implements and pictures of the cast of Gone with the Wind. I agree that it is tasteful, but bordered enough on camp to inspire me to do my best Ret Butler, Scarlet O'hara, and Sally Cato (Auntie Mame) impressions. The waiter put on his best Southern accent too. (The Scarlet O'hara punch helped fuel my inspiration no doubt too).

The sweat potato biscuits were to die for. You must have some with your obligatory helping of corn bread. The pecan encrusted Cat fish fingers and the black eyed pea cake appetizers took me back to my childhood travels to my relatives in Charleston. I loved the fried chicken and the Savannah crab cakes that reminded me of what my mother used to make when she felt like cooking and not ordering out.
We finished our meal with some very good pecan and key-lime pie. Overall a very satisfying experience. Yeah I am sure if you are a local Atlantian you are way too 'sophisticated' to admit you would like this place, but if you are a tourist this place should be on your list of places to eat.

I know this is an Atlanta institution so I had to try it. It's way too carb heavy for me. Lots of fired food, as you would expect at a Southern restaurant.

After reading about this restaurant, I couldn't wait! There was not a hoop skirt in sight, the restaurant was nearly empty but all who entered were stacked on top of each other in a small section with huge sections of the restaurant vertually empty. The food was good but was certainly not southern. Our service was terrible but in fairness I can say other waiters looked more capable than ours. We had to repeatedly ask for drink refills (very small tea glass). We had to repeatedly ask for bread which was cold. My biscuit crumbled in my hand...Southern Cuisine! ...I think not ! The atmosphere was nothing special and the experience very over priced. The only thing worse than the price was the parking. Would definitely not recommend.

PROS: food was good
CONS: too expensive, bad service, terrible parking

This is a great restaurant. It has the ambience of the old south, particularly the "Gone with the Wind" south. There are rocking chairs that you are invited to sit in while waiting for a table. The area where the rockers are looks down into the main dining area. The main dining area itself looks like a set from the movie with a few newer conveniences tucked in here and there. All entrees come with Pittypat's sideboard - a fantastic bar of all different kinds of salad. Don't load up on the salads though because the entree is generous. You also get breads and vegetables with your entree. I had the Aunt Pittypat's Filet. It was excellent, tender and tasty.

Unless you have a big budget, this restaurant is mostly for special occasions. You do get what you paid for though. The quality of the food and service is awesome. Parking can be difficult since it is right in downtown Atlanta.

Pittypats has been in downtown atlanta since the 60's and it is by far the best food you will ever eat. The salad bar full of gourmet foods is a real treat the chicken salad will melt in your mouth.
Go easy with the bar because the main course is alot of food.
Many different types of choices including southern fried chicken,venison, filet mignon.....
Extremely well versed servers and atmosphere.
Not to pricey. approx $100 for two with drinks.
Well worth every penny and then some.

Located next to the Peachtree Plaza hotel. There is parking available next door.

Editorial from

Aunt Pittypat was one of the characters in "Gone with the Wind." Always at the point of fainting, she kept her smelling salts constantly at the ready. This restaurant, named for her, purports to capture the feeling of a Southern porch set…
