Best Kept Secret in Atlanta – I've been going to the 57th for nearly 25 years now. As a child, everytime my gradfather (WW2 vet) came into town, we had to go have lunch here. As a kid, it was the coolest thing ever. Headphones so you can listen to the air traffic around PDK and all the airplanes taking off and landing. Later in life, I came here on a date and had a very romantic evening sitting along the runway. A few years ago, I learned that the place had closed and was heartbroken. When I found out earlier this year that it had reopened I was estatic! I became a fan again this year... the food is still A+ and the service is impecable, I had no idea the patio was so amazing. This is one of Atlanta's BEST patio! There is even a bar that opens right up to the outside from the inside... great idea! I was just there this past Saturday and the dance floor was packed. We had a really nice girl take care of us in the lounge. Her name was Asmara. As crazy as it was with all the people and dancing, we still had great service. The only thing I can suggest is to eat in the dinning room before you try and get your groove on on the dance floor!!! We had the full meal before and I suggest the lobster squares and the salmon/shrimp pasta. We had cheesecake for dessert which was amazing. (My husband had the beer cheese soup... he could have had a gallon!!)
Glad you enjoy coming to the 57th.... thank you for sharing your experience!
Wonderful Experience – A group of us went there for dinner tonight. The gentleman at the front desk was pleasnt and accomodating. The food, particularly the Calamari and the Ribeye were outstanding!! The service was attentive and the female manager that approached our table was sincere and pleasant. It was a wonderful experience... we will be back. Keep up the good work, and glad you have reopened!
Thanks for sharing your experience ! So glad you enjoyed everything!
We Were Bullied by the General Manager - Tricia Clancy – During a recent visit to 57th Fighter Group Restaurant our view of this place completed changed because our encounter with Ms. Clancy.
My son was looking at the model planes parked on the lawn and was herded away from there by Ms. Clancy like herding an animal, later she rudely demanded my son who was standing up looking at the fire pit to sit down; when I protested the manner of her speaking she told us to leave if we did not like their 'kids-remain-seated' policy.
I do not like the policy but they have the right to make whatever policy they see fit. My problem is with the messenger - Ms. Clancy, the General Manager, her tone of voice, facial and body gestures were condescending, to say the least. When I asked the name of the owner, she dismissed my question by waving her arms saying 'I have better things to do' and took off.
My 6-year-old son who was well behaved the whole time told me that the lady (Ms. Clancy) made him feel very bad. The customers surrounded us and the staff were quite sympathetic towards us. We got Ms. Clancy's full name, the owner's name from the staff and decided to leave. A staff requested another manager to speak to us and also suggested to seat us inside.
A manager came over to talk to us about the situation, since she was quite nice we were considering to be reseated until Ms. Clancy injected herself into our conversation; she shamefully accused my son running wildly on the runway, and me yelling at her. I told her she was unprofessional and disrespectful etc, and she tried to dismiss us by saying that we were making a scene. I only read about and saw on movie/TV of individuals smearing others with lies to justify their own faulty behaviors, to experience it personally is something heavy to take in, because it is not easy to explain to a 6-year old that a person with this type of quality can be 'the boss' of the place, and why she won even she was rude and lying and we had to leave with empty stomach.
We left and went somewhere pleasant to eat, and we taught our son that we left because we do not tolerate bullies, dishonesty will not prevail, we will share the bad experience with the owner and the rest of the world via Internet.
My family travels all over the world and we had never experienced this type of 'unkindness' from anybody at anywhere until this encounter at the hospitable south of United States of America. I wish the owner of this restaurant would work on improving the professionalism and communication skills of his staff.
Ridiculously Awesome Place – This place is awesome. It caters to everyone. HUGE patio, formal dining, casual lounge, great dance floor, DJ, authentic WWII artifacts, I could go on and on. The food is great. Even the chef came by the table to see how our meal was. The staff brought my husband and I champagne for our anniversary. LOVE THIS PLACE!!!
Thanks for sharing your experience! Hope we can create more memories in the years to come!
A great place for Thanksgiving dining. – Had Thanksgiving there with friends last year. Great food, great service and a wonderful atmosphere. One suggestion, in this economic downturn,it would be best to offer lower prices on entrees at night so that we could enjoy the restaurant more days out of the year.
Great tribute, great food – Great tribute, look for pictures of my Dad and his fellow AAF members of the 66th Fighter Squadron. Enjoyable experience, great food.
We were honored to hang your father's picture by our Veteran's "Wall of Heroes"!
Great food and adult atmosphere – This was always our favorite place to go to celebrate special occasions. We liked the atmosphere and appreciated not being accosted by children running free and causing distractions. We were very sad when it closed, but were extremely delighted to see 57th reopen and maintain its integrity. We are an older couple and appreciate having a special place to enjoy and dine in comfort. The service has always been good and the people friendly without being overpowering. The food has always be great and we have taken friends to 57th with us on occasion, and they were impressed with this particular restaurant.
Thank you for your comments. We are delighted to be back open and hope to help you celebrate many more special occassions!
Great Dance Place – I love the atmosphere in this place! It's a terrific dance spot with an superb DJ who plays EVERYTHING and most anything you want. Good dancers mix with everyday free stylers. Nice mix. Bartenders are also terrific.
The DJ plays every Thursday, Friday and Saturday. The Atlanta Blue Notes Jazz band plays every Sunday from 5-7 pm on the patio...Our bartenders are great!
so happy that kids won't spoil this great restaurant – so happy to hear that kids aren't allow to ruin one of my favorite re-opened spots. kids ruin patios, kids ruin great restaurants, and kids ruin my relaxed enjoyment with beer in hand of this great place. So sorry to the reviewer who wrote the bad review- how about you leave the brats at home and come join the adults in this grown up place.
great atmosphere, food pretty good- yummy cheese soup, good salmon, great nachos- amazing service and keeps the beers rolling and the brats at home!!
Thank you for the review. Look forward to seeing you again soon!
