Restaurant Advice Needed?

My parents will be coming to visit and I am looking for a restaurant with great food and good portions and a casual atmosphere. I live in the Northeast suburbs of ATL. Any place around there but also toward the midtown area is great too. I need to expand my horizons.

  1. Curious. What do you mean by "good portions?"
    Are your parents paying? How much do you want to spend? That will make a big difference in your choice.

    1. Swallow at the Hallow in Roswell may fit the bill. Good size portions and large pies for dessert. They often have live music making for a fun atmosphere.

      1. Try The Colonnade, or Mary Mac's Tea Room.

        1. Greenwood's on Green Street in Roswell is modern southern food in large portions with some of the best pies in the area - directly across from the commonly owned Swallow at the Hollow, which has very good bbq.

          1. I too like Greenwoods---if you like Itailian Id try Alfredos off Clairmont--its been there forever and serves authentic southern Italian mostly,and always take home lots of food.They tend to get crowded so Id make a reservation--Im from the Bronx and its very close to the real Italian id get there
