Cypress Pint and Plate is a decent pub. I don't always want a $10 cocktail or a $20 entre. I just want a pint and some good food. Their fish and chips are some of the best in the city. Their new range of sliders are great for a small bite. They've got a buffalo chicken, a meatball, a shrimp po-boy and a battered fish. The patio is nice and the interior is simple. There's a separate side area for large parties inside. The prices are good, especially the food. Cypress is full of locals.

When Cypress Street Pint and Plate finally opened I happy to find we had a great local eatery in Midtown. Nearby Ecco and Eno are great, but I don't always want a $10 cocktail and a $20 entre. Sometimes I just want a decent pint and some good food and thats what Cypress Street has. It's like an American Pub. The ceasar salad is great, the wings are really good and the meatball sliders rock. Their fish and chips are some of the best in the city and their chicken Picatta Sandwich is a real crowd pleaser. The best thing about it? The Fish and Chips are only $9 and most of their Sandwiches are only $8.00. They've got a dog friendly patio which is rare in midtown. You can always tell if a place is good by the number of locals that visit, and you can tell that this is a true neighborhood bar.

I tried this restaurant recently for the first time. It's a beautifully designed space, but the food was quite poor. My medium-rare burger came out well-done, and my wife's chicken sandwich was obviously a frozen, reconstituted patty similar to McDonald's - she couldn't eat it. The beer list is only ok. The service was acceptable, but disappointing (if not surprising) that no one bothered to ask whether we were happy with everything ... We won't go back. There are many, many better options for good pub fare and beer in Atlanta.
