After only positive experiences at both the Sandy Springs and Alpharetta locations, I was as excited as every other beer- and food-obsessed Atlantan to have a 5 Seasons inside the Perimeter. But the initial reports were worrisome. People complained that the main room was deafeningly loud, and even more troubling, that the food was disappointing. The large room overlooking the intersection of Marietta Street and Howell Mill Road does have strange acoustics, and the service ranges from friendly to spacy to downright absent. But those flaws are easily forgivable when great food is on the table. Unfortunately, great food is hard to come by at this 5 Seasons location. Because even with the best ingredients in the world, care must be taken to preserve those ingredients’ inherent value.
New Orleans-inspired menu, drinks, and live music.
The new restaurant features such Cajun favorites as gumbo, crawfish and shrimp etouffee.
This Marietta seafood joint has one lengthy po'boy menu. Po'boys are served "dressed" and come with your choice of fresh-cut french fries or red beans and rice. The shrimp version is a monster of a sandwich, tightly wrapped in white paper, and measuring a foot in length. The shrimp are on the small side, but the amount packed into the sandwich makes up for this shortcoming. Don't forget one of the sauces, such as the lime-dill tartar.
