Grant Park
About the restaurant
Grant Park's Best Kept Secret! A true neighborhood bistro located in Historical Grant Park home to Zoo Atlanta. Historic L.P. Grant Park is located in the southeast quadrant of the city approximately one mile from the gold dome of the state capitol building and six blocks south of I-20. The park is bordered by Boulevard SE on the east, Atlanta Avenue on the south, Cherokee Avenue on the west, Sydney Street on the north and Park Avenue and Berne Street on the northeast. Placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1979, Grant Park is the result of a gift of 100 acres to the City of Atlanta to be used in perpetuity as a public park. Lemuel Pratt Grant, donated the land and immediately began to subdivide and sell lots around the new park. The surrounding residential area grew up around the park and boasts more than 2,200 late 19th-century and early 20th-century homes and commercial structures.

Always a solid experience here which is why we chose to celebrate a birthday here. The card signed by the staff is such a special touch. All the dishes were amazing. The Adult Mac n Cheese, Philly Cheesesteak, goat cheese cheesecake were stand outs!

South Main Kitchen is a great choice for a great meal! I brought my dad for Father's Day, and the brunch menu was so diverse. Our server was amazing and made some great suggestions as we were deciding what to eat. If you are there fir brunch, I recommend the deviled eggs! They are delish! We will definitely be back here again.

We got there at 9:00 EDT. The time for our reservations. The restaurant was only about 10% occupied. We were met with the bar tender who turned out to be our server. He was friendly and seemed knowledgeable. They had non-alcoholic beer which has been my gauge of customer care for the past 6 years. I did look at the wine list and it was impressive. My wife had a salad with shrimp, my daughter had a bowl of soup and a side salad. Both proclaimed them delicious. On our server's recommendation, I ordered the Brazilian beef. It was rare, as ordered, with a great great presentation. The flavor was good, but slightly chewy. I chalked that up to eating way past their normal time. A great find, we will be backI

About the restaurant
Since 1997, we've been striving to please our guests, whether they’re looking for old favorites, seasonal creations, small plates or an introduction to new wine. We’ve adapted our style to reflect current food trends as well as the way our guests want to eat. So while there’s a selection for those who want to splurge on entrees such as the signature Ahi Tuna, New Zealand Elk or NY Strip, there are plenty of other options including gluten-free and vegetarian selections along with weekly wine features. Cheers!
