Local institution serving fare like fried chicken & coleslaw in an unpretentious space; cash only.- Google
"I got the shrimp and grits, which were OK, just lacked any seasoning."
"For Southern comfort food this is by far my go to place!"

You wanna step back in time with some old-fashioned service, good southern food and servers with character? Try the Colonnade! Each time I get a new server- I am impressed with their personality and stories I hear. The southern food is basic - but good and hits the right spot- not your guts with fat, salt or heartburn. No checks or plastic- ATM is at the front. Notice- a lot of the customers are um, a little on the experienced side- which tells me the place will keep you coming back for more if they have been coming back this long- and they can still take it. Give it a shot.

I'm from Michigan! my thought was good southern cooking would be everywhere in the south...No so! This place was recommended by a little old lady at another restaurant, and now I go back every time I'm in Atl. Last time I was there, I took a whole group of locals that had never they are regulars!

This place almost looks shady from the outside, but don't let that discourage you — the chock-full parking lot will give away that this is a restaurant well worth visiting. Delightful appetizers, fantastic Southern Fried Chicken (in very sizeable portions, consider splitting one between two people or taking some home with you), excellent desserts and a nice selection of beers, wines and cocktails. All served family style in 60s decor combined with attentive, professional and enthusiastically friendly service.

The Operating Owner Jodi Stallings is a RACIST, no person of African American descent should ever eat here. The food was less than lukewarm and below "poor-fair". When I complained about the quality of the food, she removed the uneatten food, billed me for the total and when I asked her to discount because I did not eat it, she called the police. She yelled at me the entire time, totally unprofessional. The BBB of Atlanta, GA was contacted concerning the matter.

I have always been a fan of the Colonnade, but this past Saturday was disappointing. We were seated right away (arrived about 4:30pm), but waited and waited until a waiter came by and asked if we had yet been waited on. He went to find our waitress and came back saying she was AWOL, so he took care of us. He did a good job. The second problem was the food. Two in my party ordered the fried catfish, which they have had before. The fish was bad/inedible. Our waiter took their order for the fried chicken instead and brought it right out. The manager came over and apologized for the fish stating "I'm sorry. sometimes this just happens depending on who we get the fish from." This was not reassuring. I got the shrimp and grits, which were OK, just lacked any seasoning. (I took the leftovers home and put some Creole Seasoning on them which did the trick.). The fried chicken is pretty good, but again is a bit bland. Needs salt and/or seasoning! If I want to eat low salt or "healthy" I would go somewhere else, but I go to Colonnade for good Home Cookin! Please Colonnade, start adding seasoning and find a better vender to get your fish!

took a long time to get our drinks. took an even longer time to get our food. It wasn't the worst food just not very good at all. very bland. no kids menu. the kids got chicken tenders which they wouldn't eat. they actually tasted pretty bad I didn't even mind the kids not eating those. we normally go to folk's for southern cooking and we should of this time. better food,better service,better price

I love the food of the Colonnade!! The fried chicken is delicious and being of African American decent I have very high standards for this dish. I also really enjoyed the shrimp because I had it as a to go meal and it still tasted great when I got home. I would recommend this establishment to anyone truly wanting to enjoy Atlanta history!
