Thumbs Up! – I really love Melton's Blue Ribbon Fries and Better Burger. I see to it that I drop by Melton's once a month, coudn't go without having a taste of old style beer and burger.
Unassuming retro pub slays it in the right places. – In Short
Don’t let the fact that this place smells like a cafeteria circa 1985 deter you from entering, you’ll be pleasantly surprised. A hidden Emory haunt, Melton’s is no style, all substance. Sure, it seems like period piece from a decade you’ve been trying to forget (read: not a good first-date place) but the bar food is outstanding, namely their chicken finger basket. Lightly battered strips and crispy waffle fries will sucker-punch Southern fave Chic-fil-A, especially after a few pints. A zesty condiment they deem "blue cheese sauce" comes with half the items on the menu, and while it tastes nothing like blue cheese, we can guarantee you’ll lap it up. Sandwiches are massive and nachos get baked in the oven to crisp up the chips a bit. The cheapo late-night menu and nightly drink specials are merely a bonus.
Casual atmosphere with good food and beer – My family has been going to Melton's for years and we find it consistently good. It is very family-friendly, but in a low-key way. My kids say that Melton's mac n cheese is the best anywhere. The staff is friendly and many of them have been there for years. The food is good and there are always several different beers on tap. There are a couple big screen TVs for watching sports. It is just an easy, neighborhood spot that won't cost you an arm and a leg.
Best Burger in Metro Atlanta – Forget the Vortex! Melton's burger is the best in Atlanta. The waffle fries with the "mystery" dipping sauce are a perfect match for the burger. The service is always fast and friendly and the food is always fresh and hot.
consistent food, friendly staff – this place is family-friendly (a pro or a con, depending on how you feel about children) but my bf and i always belly-up to the bar and hope that tony, mike or carrie will be behind it. the menu is simple, consistent bar fare. i only wish they served liquor as well. there are so many regulars that it takes a while to become one here, but once you are, you can expect exceptional service over the standard good service they always give. every time we go in, it feels like the staff is happy to see you. where does that happen anymore?
Best cheeseburger in town! – I bought a condo in the neighborhood about 5 months ago and during the search my realtor turned me on to Melton's. The cheeseburgers are fantastic as are the Irish nachos. The service is usually friendly, though the staff can be a little clique-ish.
Great food and friendly customer service – I love Melton's! I have been going to Melton's for years for great food and a wonderful atmosphere. The beer selection is devine and the staff will always help you out with the extensive list of bottles and drafts. I almost always go in the evening because the crowd is more relaxed. I get a negative vibe from all the nurses that grab lunch there. You can hear them compaining from the table over. Try the Buffalo tenders and you won't be disappointed.
basic food with basic service – everytime i try this restaurant, the wait staff is engrossed in their personal conversations and not particularly interested in providing excellent customer service. the food is basic, as is the atmosphere.
Great food, great suds – Big menu with tons of delicious options, big beer selection with seasonal choices, big screen TVs for enjoying a game, big patio, three big dining rooms . . . Melton's has it all for a place that looks so small. Comfortable atmosphere and good service add to the experience. Overall thumbs up.
Great Neighborhood Bar – We've been going to Melton's for years. Yes, the food is consistently good, BUT...we're ready for a change in the menu. Take a clue from the U Joint, Corner pub, Brick Store. It's getting to the point where everything tastes the same. Prices are a little high, too, compared to other places, but hey, Melton's has a monopoly because of its location.
Great and affordable beer list, good service, but stay away on the "Kid's night". Sorry, but I can't take listening to screaming brats when I go out for dinner.
Oh yeah, Tony is the BEST waiter! He makes the experience worthwhile!
