Great steaks!

Dined 4 days ago

Usually, I only have time to get a great carry out meal after a long day. And when I want to treat myself. But I took my out of town friends there for lunch and it was wonderful. The hostess was very professional and charming. Our waiter was also wonderful. My steak was perfection.

Birthday Dinner Success

Dined on April 26, 2016

The atmosphere was welcoming and elegant. Quiet yet so full of energy! Our waiters were prompt and very courteous! The steak was so tender it literally melts in your mouth while the baked oysters are to die for..... So are the crab cakes lol. I celebrated my birthday her and it was perfect, they even brought me out cheesecake on a happy birthday plate.. How thoughtful. At the end of this evening the manager came out to greet us and he even took pictures with us. It was a great experience I would totally recommend and visit McKendricks again😊

Admin Appreciation Lunch

vip
Dined on April 25, 2016

The food was out of this world! The steak was cooked perfectly and the bacon on the wedge was amazing! Kelly was our server and she did a great job. However, we had to wait almost 40 minutes for the salads to arrive, which was bothersome. And for lunch, the lighting was a bit too dark for daytime. Otherwise, a delightful meal!

Disappointed

Dined on March 26, 2016

The food was excellent, service a tad slow but very professional. The noise level is why this is just an average review. The restaurant was busy so the noise level may have been higher than usual. Given the expense of the meal, even though the food was superb, and the noise level, we will choose another restaurant like Bone's or Chops the next time.

Steaks

Dined on March 19, 2016

Steaks were delicious and cooked to order. I Had 8 oz filet medium rare & my husband had NY strip medium rare. Very tender. We shared two sides: au gratin potatoes & roasted brussel sprouts with bacon and shaved Parmesan--both very good. French onion soup & lobster bisque for appetizers. It was our first time dining here and it was my birthday. They brought me a complimentary apple cobbler with vanilla bean gelato. Coffee was smooth and very good. Our waiter was very attentive and checked back frequently. Courses were evenly paced. We went on a Saturday evening at 7:30 and enjoyed a leisurely dinner.

Best steak I have had in my 30 years in Atlanta.

Dined on March 19, 2016

We ordered three different steaks the bone in ribeye, the prime rib(served as a flint stone cut) and a filet. I ordered the ribeye but everyone else was very pleased also. Our server"Taco" was always around but never had us in the conversation time out zone. Superb service! Highly recommend....

I suspect McKendrick is just as good for dinner but I was there for lunch. Convenient parking and very pleasant wait staff made for a good experience. I always appreciate when the wait staff is aware of conversation and waits for an opening to provide service. Well done.

Loved it!

Dined on March 5, 2016

We loved our dining experience at McKendrick's! The crispy fried oysters and the baked oysters were a delicious start to our meal. We enjoyed the garlic spinach, sauteed brussel sprouts, and the lobster mashed potatoes tasted so divine they were practically sinful. The ribeye and the filet mignon topped with asparagus and lump crab meat were so tender the meat practically melted in your mouth. Thank you for making our anniversary even more spectacular with the fabulous food and impeccable service.

Wedding Anniversary!

Dined on February 28, 2016

We selected McKendrick's for our 29th wedding anniversary dinner with another couple. We drove up from south Atlanta and were greeted and seated right away. We had a wonderful meal that we all thoroughly enjoyed. I had been there before so knew that we needed to try the steak, Mac and Cheese and Key Lime pie. The service was attentive as usual. They provided a anniversary dessert for us at the end of the meal that was a nice surprise. We had a great night and the meal was well worth the drive to the north side of the ATL.

Awesome Food!!!

Dined on February 25, 2016

I was visiting Atlanta for business and staying out in the Perimeter Park area. I tried several restaurants in the area and decided to try McKendrick's. I absolutely loved the environment and the food was fabulous. I had the salmon with sweet chili sauce. The grilled vegetables were fresh and the baked sweet potato was heavenly. I'll definitely visit again when I'm in the area.

Have visited here before and always had the best service and wonderful food. This time the 24oz Porterhouse was a bad cut. It was full of tendons and too much fat. Our sever, at the 90's table, was above superb, as usual. He always makes you feel like your table is the most important in the house. If you want to impress a first date, this is your place in Dunwoody. Bring $250-$350 for a good time and plan on being treated like a billionaire.

Great experience!

Dined on February 14, 2016

We truly enjoyed our time. Our reservation was for 9:00pm. We waited another 10 minutes prior to being seated but it was a very busy night. We simply enjoyed sitting at the bar until seated. My boyfriend says it was the best steak he has ever had (cooked Med.). My salmon was cooked perfectly. The lobster macaroni was delicious and asparagus steamed perfectly as well. We were told the sides were enough for 2 people, however we still ordered separate sides to taste more. The asparagus was definitely large enough to share. Our waitress was great, and food was prompt. Overall I have no complaints about this place. We will definitely be back.
