Sports bar with good food in Atlanta?

Hi - I will be in Atlanta this weekend for work and am looking for somewhere good to go watch the SEC championship game on Saturday afternoon. I prefer to avoid all of the other "tourists" good food and will drink anything from Miller Lite to Opus One. I'm staying in the Buckhead area but will have a car and also am familiar with MARTA. Please help?

  1. Try Dantanna's in the shops around Lenox.

      I second Dantanna's - great steak's and fish.. but make sure you get there early.

      Taco Mac is a chain that, depending on the location, has good bar food. They specialize in wings and hundreds of different types of beer.

      Both have websites.

    2. Not a sports bar, but I caught the end of the Alabama/UGA game several weeks ago at Tastings wine bar in Decatur. It was after dinner (at Cakes and Ale), and I was drinking beer instead of wine. But they had a good selection with a sorta maddening card-based system for trying the different offerings. I didn't hear any complaints from the part of the gang that actually ate.

      The thing I remember is the big hi-def flat-screen behind the bar. It might not be as jammed as a real sports bar, and there are lots of good food/drink places in Decatur if you wanted to eat after or whatever.

      1. Oh, and I forgot Hudson Grill... they are a new chain around here as well. Their food is better than Taco Mac.

        They have locations in Brookhaven - which is near Buckhead, and one at Perimeter Mall.

        1. There is Zuffy's on Buford Hwy. The food is very good. They have lots of TV's.
          Have a great time!

          1. Thanks for the suggestions all - Dantanna's was packed so we wound up trying Hudson Grille - also PACKED - then on to Twist. Not a sports bar, per se, but they have TV's so it worked. The food was not very good but the service was so we had a good time!
