I was fan of "Yakitori Denchan" in Buckhead back in the late 90's. I was so happy to hear when Denise opened a new restaurant in Sandy Springs and it was a nice surprise that the restaurant was nothing like Denchan, except for some similar menu like "KARI KARI". If you are indecisive which draft to order, their sampler is a great choice. The food is Asian fusion and quite tasty. They simply serve you the great drinks and food. Prado mall has been renovated and the parking situation is improved, which is a huge plus!

5 Seasons has really stepped it up a notch with the arrival of Kevin McNerney from Sweetwater. In addition to some of the old favorites brewed by former brew master Glenn Sprouse, Kevin is brewing more hop-head friendly recipes such as Hopgasm. The food quality is comparable to the beer quality as well--there is no frozen deep fried "bar food" here! Just great food made with fresh LOCAL ingredients.

A lot of people say the portions are small but what they must not be aware of is that the food is expertly crafted, either locally grown, organic, or market fresh that day. Besides, when you order lamb for example, you don't get the whole lamb. It's not like a subsidized, industrialized steak operation. I guess what I am trying to say is if you prefer quantity over quality, go somewhere else for food. This is actually good for you food at realistically sized portions. There are no Big Gulp beverages or Steaks so big they're free if you eat the whole thing. Go to Friday's for that kind of stuff. Now that that is out of the way, I want to say the atmosphere is great. Very casual and upscale at the same time. The owners and managers are there and are friendly and will sit with you and ask how things are and it's clear they are genuinely concerned. The beer is adventurously designed and very tasty. They will definitely have at least one beer you'll love. I generally like all of them. There is also a full bar and a great wine selection. The patio is great too when the weather is agreeable. I highly recommend this place.

I was looking forward to the opening of the Five Seasons Brewery in the West End location, but all I can say now is at least they have decent parking - for Atlanta. The atmosphere is great, and the staff is very friendly, but what does a guy have to do to get a decent lunch around there? It took them two tries to get us the right appetizer and two more tries to get us the sandwiches we ordered. The food presentation was on par with Steak-n-Shake, and I can get better flavor from a "Sack-Full" at Krystals at 1:30 in the morning. No offense to Steak-n-Shake and Krystals, but I expect more out of a $14 burger than a dried up piece of meat on an average bun with a side of soggy, tasteless fries.

I was a bit disappointed with this place. The beer was excellent, but any of the entrées or specials are a rip-off. The food is really good, but the portions are small for what you pay. The pizzas are a much better deal. The service was also average. I'll go back, but won't be ordering any food over $10.

My family & I have been to 5 Seasons several times since they opened their Alpharetta location this year (in the old Buckhead Brewery building on Old Milton). I didn't know they had other locations, but I love this place. I literally want to try everything on the menu. They use fresh locally grown ingredients and everything we have had there has been wonderful. Highly recommended.

I have been a regular at this pub for about five years. They have some of the best brews I've tasted. They change out seasonally so there are always options for every preference. My personal favorites are Scotch Ale, Munich Helles, Cartoon Brune and Seven Sisters. Their food is also amazing - unique dishes made from organic vegetables and free range meat.

I have always had a pleasant eating experience at Five Seasons. If you plan to sit at the bar, beware.... There are a couple of bartenders that are just outright rude and non-responsive. I think their bar staff in Alpharetta is much more friendly....

This has to be one of the best places to eat in atlanta. The food is always great with staple menu and an always creative daily special menu. Oh yeah the beer, If I could I would swim in the tank and drink all the beer it is that good!! Also check out five seaons north on old milton pkwy.

Wunderbiers. OK, that is weak German, or pseudo-German, but this wonderful brewpub/restaurant has knock-out, no-nonsense beers and incrediblly fresh and inventive cuisine. The service is always great at the tables and usually excellent at the bar. I highly recommend this excellent brewpub.

I love eatting at this place. They have great tasting food at really good prices. Also, if you like beer, they have their own brewery (with lots to choose from). The service was excellent as well and a nice eatting environment..
