My husband and I ate here recently on a short trip to Atlanta. We were in a bit of a hurry as I only had an hour break from a business meeting, it was Sunday afternoon around 12 so I was a little nervous. The staff was amazing and got us in and out in plenty of time without us... More

Had food and drinks here tonight. Boss covered the food, while the team paid for individual drinks. Food was okay. Jambalaya Pasta was mild, not spicy, with not a lot of sausage, crawfish, or chicken. Quite surprised by the "entertainment charge" that was almost as much as the drink. Most places just include this in overhead. Go figure. Not terribly... More

I called and made reservations through Veronica. Please realize you have a 15 min grace period to seat your tables. Several guests were late and I appreciate the fact that the hostess worked exceptionally hard to get us all seated in the same area. The band was great!!! We all got in party mode and danced to several songs before... More

Great entertaining music - different each night. Wonderful southern food. Had the fried chicken with creamed kale and fried green tomatoes - so good! You must go if you are in the area!

Couldn't Believe how hard it was to find barbecue at Atlanta airport. Several of the places had closed. Found this one by mistake. But, it hit the spot. Not perfect but not bad. What they got right? BBQ sauce with the right amount of sweet, tang and smoky heat. Collard greens and good service. What they got wrong? Decor was... More

Great restaurant for southern comfort food. Had a jazz band playing and the drink menu was great. Great location to walk to if you are staying downtown.

We spent a lot of our time looking for a place with authentic Southern food and finally found it at Ray's. We had the shrimp and grits and it was delicious. Definitely recommend this place if you love Southern food.

Wonderful place! Excellent live music! Incredible southern offerings! Highly recommend the shrimp and grits. Give their moonshine a try too! Met the owners... they are warm, down to earth folks. If you are in Atlanta, stop on by!

We made reservations for an early dinner. The food was very appealing to the eye...but lacked the flavor I was expecting. I had shrimp and grits. It was very pretty to look at but the grits were TOO thick! The shrimp were not seasoned. There was a small amount of gravy around the edge and it had no flavor. There... More
