The Zagat Review
A love of the outdoors inspires this Old Fourth Ward restaurant and bar serving up “fantastic” New American fare from a campfire-themed menu in lodge-like surrounds with a “legendary” BeltLine-adjacent patio and screened-in porches; a “good” selection of local beers and “balanced” cocktails adds to the “nice atmosphere.”

Walking in to the restaurant, I fell in love with the decor. A cozy campfire feel. My father order the fish and grits which was flavorful and perfect balance of creamy and spicy. I order the chicken and melon, which was presented remarkably. The chicken is smoked then fried but still one of my two pieces of chicken bloody. I told the waitress and she seemed nonchalant and informed me that it was the smoking of the chicken it was like that. Regardless of smoking, my chicken shouldn't be red and bloody. We still ended up paying for the whole dish even though only one was edible.

Love this place. They have a great atmosphere including a large deck, and "Grove" filled with games and plenty of seating. The smoked wings are incredible, and so is the Backyard BBQ Board. A few friends and I shared that homage to all things BBQ, and could barely make room for the Tropicalia. The place sits right on the belt-line, so if you can walk to it, that's an added bonus. Valet parking takes some time, but its worth it because the area is cramped. My only knock on this place is that they have a very limited dinner menu, so sometimes there is not anything I'm in the mood for, so I end up getting the burger. While the burger is delicious, I hope they continue to mix up the menu and offer more items. We will definitely be back.

This is a great place to stop by in the summer while taking a break from walking the beltline. Great drinks. I came for brunch and it was pretty good. The chicken sandwich was okay. Had better. The sticky buns were amazing.
