The Southern Gentleman
Location: 3035 Peachtree Rd NE Suite A208

Food: Multiple visits have confirmed that the food at Southern Gentlemen is good. The ambience of this restaurant is romantic, yet also a perfect place to grab drinks with friends before going out on the town. Traditionally it’s known as a whiskey bar hints the name Southern Gentleman but they have a full menu for brunch, lunch and dinner.

My first visit here, I ordered the shrimp & grits a staple of the restaurant. The southern classic dish was made with gulf shrimp, sweet and salty New Orleans BBQ sauce, and peppered whole grain grits in a stew. As a huge fan of the traditional southern dish I was excited to try their spin with the bar-b-que sauce instead of the traditional tomato. It was actually pretty good. The grits were grittier than I would like, but the shrimps were big and plenty. The sauce which didn’t taste like bbq, helped to add the right amount of flavor to the dish. My only wish was for more grits. For the first time ever, I had more shrimps left than grits, which is a good problem to have. After having a good experience with the food ambience, and staff I ate here again for appetizers.

During a nightcap visit I ordered the PEI mussels, Vidalia onion crab dip, the bacon deviled eggs, and the corn fritters. The mussels were okay, and the toasted buttered sour dough dipped in the cream sauce of the mussels was delicious. My least favorite appetizer was the bacon deviled eggs, I just felt that there was something that was missing. Can’t quite explain what, but I desired more from this dish. But the corn fritters, and Vidalia onion crab dips are delightful.
