do not go during afternoon – i went during the afternoon,around 2:30,and the service by Brian was bad ,I waited 25 minutes for a burger and I saw the maneger doing a shot while i waited for a meal..will not be back..
Great place for relaxing – I came here for a friend's birthday party recently and absolutely loved it. Didn't try any of the food but the cocktails and bar selection were wonderful. It's a great place to go and chill and the laid-back atmosphere really made the whole night enjoyable. Although there was a good-sized crowd, none of us felt crowded or overwhelmed like you do in a lot of places. The best part was I didn't smell leaving like a bar (smoky and gross). I highly recommend this place to anyone!
Would not recommend... – I went here a few months ago and found it very gross. The smell inside the place was very stale and the food was not good. I ordered crab cakes and there was hardly any crab and they were really greasy. I like the patio but there are better places you can go.
Give It Up! – Twenty years ago, Vickery's was the place, and the Crescent area still is, but not Vickery's. The quality of food, drinks and staff has severly gone down hill. Hey guys, make it over, it could be great again!
Best Patio in Atlanta – I love Vickery's! I could sit on the patio & drink Cosmos (they come with this sidecar thingy!) every afternoon if my liver would let me. The service is usually right-on and personable. I always order the gazpacho (it's perfect!) and the summer caprese sandwich. Go for late lunch or dinner.
Yummy, Huge Portions – The rib-eye was a little over-cooked, but still delicious. Huge portions! None of us could finish our meals. Very attentive service. Patios was nice to sit in all evening, and server didn't rush us. We wanted to share a dessert, but the selections were not appealing.
Jerk Chicken Sandwhich & Plantains! Yummy! – Vickery's is a great place in Midtown for lunch. The menu is very well rounded and the environment is pleasant. They have a great front patio, perfect when the weather is just right. I would recommend the Jerk Chicken Sandwich and Plantains. It comes with their own specially made mayonaisse that has a fruity essence. The onion rings are phenomenal - very skinny and perfect to eat with your fingers.
Deadly serious cocktails steal the show at this kitschy Crescent Avenue grill. – The Scene
This is one of Midtown's favorite stopovers for happy hours, Sunday brunches and third dates. The brick patio is prime real estate; in colder weather, revelers pack the bar and the cozy booths situated next to the fireplace. Laid-back servers offer solid menu recommendations, and bartenders pour serious cocktails for the often boisterous crowd.
Vickery's is something between a bar with an inventive menu and a casual restaurant with outstanding cocktails. The Caribbean- and Low country-influenced menu features a mix of pleasing dishes like savory black-bean cakes and creamy shrimp and grits. Pastas are best avoided, but sandwiches, dressed-up burgers, spicy bar snacks and salads--especially the Cuban Reuben made with a mojo-marinated chicken breast and a Caribbean tuna steak salad--are solid, cocktail-friendly choices
FANTASTIC – The Vickery's is one of the best restaurants I've been to in Atlanta, or otherwise. The service is great, the food is phenomenal and the drinks are very strong. We liked it so much, we had our wedding reception there. Again, a wonderful time and our out-of-town guests were ecstatic about everything. Try to grits or the sandwiches. Great for casual dining, large groups or dates. I love this place!
Go casual, you'll be fine. – Arrived at 6:30 before an ASO concert. A few people in the bar. First attempt to seat us was in the brightly lit booth area in the back at a two-top.
Two other patrons in the room. What the picture doesn't show is that there is a very nice wine room with low light, fireplace and nice cozy atmosphere behind the bar. Asked to be seated there. Again, 3 people at one table - all others empty. Sat us at a two-top stuck between the fireplace and wall with me facing an empty back room (Party coming in at 7:00). Did I mention that we were dressed nicely and they weren't busy? Obviously, we left. A shame, because we had a decent experience twice this past summer. If you arrive with lowered expectations, then perhaps, you may be surprised.
