I looked at their website and thought it looked like a cool place to bring some out of town family members this past weekend. I was so wrong and embarassed. You website does not indicate that it's just a dirty little bar. The website comes across as a 'Cheeseburger In Paradise' but it's not even close. Wasted $125 bucks on avg food, dirty building and some weird manager dude that kept hanging around my table making sexist comments to everyone. Dump...avoid at all cost.

Pros: food

The food here is delicious. It's one of my wife and I's favorite local places. We can walk there so it feels like getting out of Midtown without having to drive! It is convenient to everything exciting in Midtown and very fairly priced.

Pros: PATIO

A great spot for a romantic dinner and also a girls night out! This place has an old city charm to it with a upscale diner kind of feel. You would never think the inside looks the way it does from the outside. Vickery's looks iike it use to be a house that they remodled. Great outside patio overlooking the Midtown skyline with a even better menu to go with it. I ordered their cheeseburger with macaroni and cheese. Their macaroni and cheese is so different with little pieces of pepper in it but is sooo good! I have also heard their tator tots are incredible! Centered right in the middle of Crescent Street, this is a great place for a dinner before a night on the town!

My first dining experience at Vickery's was twenty years ago. I just went back for dinner after years and was very disappointed.
It was a Sunday evening, and was ignored when I walked in the door. I had grab a menu and order from the Bartender. Sort of dirty, very smokey, and sad, for Vickery's is one of the last of it's kind in Midtown. The food was Okay, Salad and calamari, but nothing like it used to be.
I suppose the ever increasing number of other restaurants in the neighborhood has taken it's toll on an old classic.

Cons: Pretty much everything else.

If you are looking for somewhere to go to lunch in downtown Atlanta, you should try Vickery's. The food is fantastic. The service is prompt, professional, and friendly. The atmosphere is perfect for anything from a business lunch to a date. If you go, try the Cuban or the Fried Egg Sandwich. Both are fantastic. The prices are relatively low for the quality of food you are getting. Everyone should check this place out at least once!

This place just celebrated their 25th anniversary. I went to the party and it was rocking. These guys know how to have a good time. I have always gone for Sat/Sun bunch and just found out there is an all you can eat brunch for $10 and bottomless bloodies and mimosas for $15 more! Great atmosphere for business lunch during the week. I think it'd be cool for a private party but haven't done that yet! Oh yea....There's a new location in Glenwood Park too!

Met friends here for lunch and the house salad was fantastic--which says a lot for a house salad. The proprietor was hilarious and friendly. Sounds like this place gets hopping on the weekends.

Besides being hard to access, once you get in the restaurant, you realize it's a "happening" place and you can have a lot of fun people-watching (perhaps because it's downtown, the people who are downtown at night make a special effort to be there, and the energy is lively). There is a good presentation of the food, the wait-staff is professional, and you are there to have fun, too. With the great combination of food and drink and people, you will not be disappointed.

Seems things are back to normal at my favorite haunt from the Eighties.
I still love Vickery's even though it has changed.

Pros: excellent..... parking sux

This place has been around for years. It was unique for it's patio when Midtown was starting to be the place. We stopped by before going to the new Opera. Drinks were O.K. But what really bothered us, was our server/host, think his name is Tommy, doing shots while he was working. Seems like a fun fellow, but is this the right thing to do at work. Oh well.

Hmmmm....I'm trying to come up with the right words. Ah...well, the restaurant itself was cozy although a little smoky. Cured that by sitting in the back. It also appeared to be very well-maintained which was nice to see. The patio in front was cozy too. So why am I hesitating? I guess it was the food. Butter and liquid smoke and pureed sweet potatoes is all I can remember. To translate, the sauces were all very buttery, the pork loin which was nicely done was topped with peaches that were supposed to taste grilled but tasted very clearly of liquid smoke and they pureed the sweet potatoes. Why? Having sampled the food in England once I suppose I can see where this butter thing comes from but hey...help us out here. I could feel my veins clogging with each bite. And back to the pureed sweet potatoes. I kind of felt like I was in a nursing home. What happened to a good old fashioned mashing. So would I go back? Yeah, probably to sit out on the patio and have a brew or two. Or...better yet, stick to burgers or something more basic. Oh yeah, the waiter was a really nice young lady who was working hard.

I had lunch here on a weekday. I absolutely love the atmosphere-- the red vinyl booths are great, very retro! My server recommended the ahi tuna salad with asian ginger dressing. The salad was very good as was the quality of the tuna-- much better than I expected considering they bill themselves as a "bar." There was too much pepper on the crust of the tuna and the cracker/flat bread thing that came with the salad was hard to eat, but that's my only complaint.

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!

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.

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!

Pros: It's On Crescent Avenue!

Cons: Everything!

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.

Vickery's is a converted home in the mid-town area on Crescen Avenue, a short street parallelling Peachtree. The bar scene is mainly couples and groups -- not really a singles scene. At lunch, most patrons are diners. Vickery's has a diverse menu with healthy and unhealthy fare (Try the black bean cakes!). At evenings, the bar is hopping, but food is still the main order of business. Not many beers on tap, but good service make this a "try it" at least once kind of place. Parking is miserable, difficult, and expensive.

PROS: location

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.

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.

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!

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.

Just ate at Vickery's for the first time in many years and had the special - cuban pork loin - and lots of it. There were three huge pieces of pork, and though they were underdone at first, once the kitchen cooked out the pink it was quite tasty. I had leftovers for days. The waitress was very attentive. The outdoor dining was cozy, but when I went inside I wished my date and I had chosen one of the tall red leather booths.

Vickery's is one of my favorites when eating on Crescent St. The food is always good, the staff is great, and on the rare occasion you encounter a problem, a quick word to management solves everything. The best part is the location, sit outside on the patio in the middle of Midtown/Colony Square area, beautiful at night.
