Everything was simply great. The food, the service, the drinks, the atmosphere. We were a party of six and had 5 different entrees between us so we all got to try different things. Nothing was bad. The starters we tried, brussel sprouts, grits tots and the tuna were outstanding.

In our quest to find Atlanta's best burger we went to The Pinewood. Burger was awesome. They put bacon and cheese on the burger and it is cooked to perfection. Great cocktails as well.

I love this place. Went with friends who are local. The food was really great and the extensive drinks menu and liquor selections added to the charm. The staff are very nice, funny and knowledgeable.

We visited a few weeks after this restaurant opened and while the burger was good, the service was poor as might be expected with a new restaurant. Many years later, we decided to give it another try on a Friday night. While the restaurant was busy, it was not overly crowded. I watched as our waiter ran around aimlessly without... More

Stopped by here for a quick business lunch. Was suggested by a friend who raved about the burger. Wasn't busy which we were fine with. The decor was modern but a little cold. We didn't have any drinks but I noticed they had a lot of spirits on display and they were actually closing early for a private whisky tasting... More

Based mostly off of TA reviews we tried this place for the first time. Arrived about 6:30 on a Saturday night and sat at the bar. Not very crowded yet but it did fill up by the time we left. Service at the bar was good but not as friendly or engaging as we would have liked. We came for... More

My husband and I live in Decatur and enjoy walking to many fabulous restaurants and bars in the area. This place is a little further but we've enjoyed it before (mostly for cocktails) and wanted to give dinner a try again after a couple of mediocre experiences. The staff is very friendly and welcoming and the bartenders engaging, so no... More

Drinks and food are always good...had a rum drink that was incredible, not coming up with the name right now but it had cracked pepper on top. Typically get the cheeseburger, it's incredible. Went Tagliatelle Bolognese this time which did not disappoint.

Went there with couples and glad we did. They have an extensive cocktail menu. The dinner menu was not so extensive but exclusive. I had the best chicken and waffles dinner. My husband had the crispy chicken dinner and it was moist and delicious. The people at the next table had the smoked pork chop and it was two inches... More

The Pinewood is a neighborhood restaurant & bar that serves extraordinary cocktails and reinterpreted regional fare in downtown Decatur, Georgia. We appreciate equally the high-class and the home-spun, and we think a neighborhood hangout ought to be both. That’s why our menu features elegantly inventive dishes alongside creative comfort foods, all of them made from locally sourced ingredients. Our bar is stocked with not only the top-shelf spirits you’d expect but also house-made syrups, tinctures, infusions and sodas. Our service is friendly and gracious, our atmosphere both comfortable and refined.
