  • OK so it was a Monday night but this was not a good experience. It seems you pay a premium to dine with the live music or you can dine away from it without the premium. The music was completely soulle...  more »

  • The only good thing about this place was the tea. The food is nasty and gross, service is slow but the decor is nice.

  • We heard great jazz playing on the speakers outside so we walked in to find a great band playing in the back of the room. The waiter immediately informed us that we could only watch the band in the back room if we paid a cover (no biggie) AND ordered an entree. That would only reserve us a table for 2 hours, for which the band would be playing 3 more hours. We ended up sitting in the front and watching the band through a chained fence of sorts. We had two drinks (whiskey and a mixed drink) which totaled to $25. Very expensive drink prices. Great atmosphere. Can't speak to the food as we did not try any.
  • Excellent restaurant! First time ever going and was well taken care of. The waiter was very nice, explained the menu well and was always checking on us. I had the chicken and I'll say it was the best chicken I ever had in my life! Huge portion and a fair price. If your ever hungry while in ATL do yourself a favor and stop at the Juke Joint you'll be well satisfied and be able to enjoy a GREAT atmosphere!
  • An unpleasant experience that caused me to cancel my reservation and send them this email: "Making a reservation with Sweet Georgia's Juke Joint left me feeling like, as a customer, I did not matter. Before the lady on the phone even asked my name, she was more interested in telling me "the rules" than anything else. I told her it was a wedding rehearsal dinner...I was offered no "congratulations", no "thank you for choosing to spend your special evening with us" or something to that effect. It was as though it didn't even matter to her, as long as I understood the "rules" I am happy that Sweet Georgia's Juke Joint stays SO BUSY that you have to limit people to 2.5 hours just to keep up with the demand. But in the long term, you will NEVER grow your business by making customers feel like they are just not that important OR that they are an inconvenience to you and your operations. I was told twice that you do not force people to leave if they stay past 2.5 hours, however, the comments on the review section for Sweet Georgia's Juke Joint tell a different story. When I questioned the 2.5 hour policy, I was repeatedly told WHY the rule existed. Over and over again it was explained to me. But NOT ONCE did anyone take the time to look at it from a PAYING CUSTOMER'S perspective. And it is probably one of the most CRASS things I have ever been told while trying to make a reservation. I can totally understand "suggesting" a 2.5 time allotment, but a RULE? Especially when I and my guests were prepared to spend in the neighborhood of $1000 with you guys for one evening. I'm disappointed because I have been to Sweet Georgia's Juke Joint once before and the food was delicious and the service was great. The jazz band was an added plus and as a former musician, I have NO problem paying the $5 for the entertainment fee. Maybe for a less formal event when I don't have friends and family from out of town visiting, I might consider patronizing your establishment again. But after the cold, uncaring way I was treated by your associate and general manager today, I do not have confidence that my guests will have an enjoyable experience at your establishment. You sound like you are already too busy to be concerned with our little group and I feel more comfortable dealing with establishments who APPRECIATE my business."
  • Man, I love this place! The food is excellent and the live entertainment is equally as awesome! The atmosphere is energetic, warm and comfortable. Another great perk is the valet service which is available the second you pull up to the establishment. The location is a doorstep away fom the Westin Hotel.
  • I love this place even though the service from my waitress was horrible. The live band and atmosphere made up for it. I recommend you try it at least once and come hungry the food is pretty awesome as well. I had the Color Purple cocktail with the Pulled Pork mac n chees and collard green plate.
