    Yesterday evening , my husband and I dined at the SCK location on Crescent Avenue. It was our first visit there since we hosted our daughter’s high school graduation luncheon there 20 years ago. Because we had tickets to an event in Atlanta, we wanted to have an early dinner in the area. We were seated promptly and our server, Pablo was attentive and very kind. For starters , we enjoyed the barbecue shrimp and a basket of bread. I chose one of my favorite dishes , Caesar salad with fried shrimp. My husband tried the same but with grilled chicken. As a surprise courtesy, Pablo gave us a complimentary banana dessert. My compliments to the staff, chefs, and Pablo for the positive, 5 star dining experience.

    It was our server’s first day on his own, which happened to be Easter Sunday, and he did an absolutely fantastic job. Everything was replenished when it needed to be, he was proactive, and not pushy. Really well-done especially on a very busy holiday, and that should be said and read before reading below. The friend chicken was delectable, as usual. My only critique—which was significant—was the water from the collard greens was literally fork deep (enough for the tongs on the fork to be submerged) and it took away from the best part, which was the delicious fried chicken and grits. But, this being the only meh experience I’ve ever had from many meals in over a decade living in Atlanta, I would absolutely still recommend SCK Midtown, and will eat there again next time I’m visiting Atlanta. Still a great dining experience.

    Excellent service, fantastic food, great experience over all. A bit slow for things to get to table, especially drink orders, but other from that it was really great. For sure will return.

    Party of five we were crammed in a small table for four. Our server was rude and short with us. The noise level was very loud. This place was  recommended to us. Very disappointed.

    I left the table for three minutes to use the restroom and by the time I got back my table had been cleared with someone completely new sitting at. Incredibly rude and poor treatment.

    Great wines by the glass and a good pour. Cocktail was meh. Biscuits/muffins were cold. We ate at 6:45 pm on a Saturday night. The chicken livers were amazing. Just turbo delicious. Our waitress recommended the mahi mahi and should have stuck with my original thought of trout. Mahi mahi had no flavor at all (trout would've been fresh). The zucchini that came with it was tepid, at best, and WAY overcooked. Best part of the dish was the little piece of fried kale. My mahi mahi was also way overcooked but i didn't send it back. My partner doesn't mind overcooked fishand we both ordered the mahi mahi so we swapped. But the zucchini had been prepped before dinner service and then poorly heated. And again, for both of us, the zucchini was WAY overcooked. Gross. Service was pretty good except that our mains were a bit lukewarm. I think they sat for a while. But our server was knowledgeable but very very busy. Servers need less tables or more runners. It was our first anniversary, which we put on the reservation and neither the host or server acknowledged it. We'll probably go back, since it's 3 blocks away from our condo, but it was not the best experience. Maybe pick a less busy time?
