    The Crabby Shrimp Burger at Watershed on Peachtree is almost a crab cake sandwich, but better. It’s a crab cake with chunks of shrimp in a patty, on a bun, served with a big slice of ripe tomato and remoulade.

    Seafood mélange (shrimp, scallops, crawfish, and crabmeat in a bowl with bacon); pain perdu with apples, pecans, apple butter, and candied bacon; buttermilk biscuits with homemade preserves.

    A half bird ($14.50) comes with two biscuits; order a la carte extras like custardy mac and cheese (arguably the city’s best) and a seasonal green vegetable like Brussels sprouts.

    A large selection of very fine cuisine, and occasional celebs.

    I was very happy with my eggs and the biscuits were just right. The menu seems to have something for everyone. Kale salad is beautiful, and shrimp and grits are yummy!

    Went there for the fried chicken. It was good, but not worth the price. Felt as though we were intruding on staff as we had children.

    We had a lovely dinner experience at Watershed. We dined on the patio and enjoyed a drink at the bar before we sat down for dinner. The bar tender was very pleasant and they have a nice wine selection. Dinner included the vegetable plate, stroganoff and a chicken special all of which were good. Then we moved on to the chocolate cake and hot milk cake and they were a yummy end to the meal. Our server was very friendly and approachable. Would definitely return.

    Went to Watershed for an early Sunday Brunch . All 4 of us ordered something different and we all agreed it was quite good. I had the cornbread French toast with a blueberry syrup which was amazing. Small jazz band played which added to the ambience. Liquor is served after 12:30 on Sunday and reservations are recommended as it gets busy.

    We live in Buckhead within virtually yards of Pricci’s. So, the 4 of us load up and drive down Peachtree on a Friday night to dine at Watershed. The restaurant is pretty quiet for a Friday night at 7:30. We are seated in a unique booth and start with drinks. I have grown fond of selecting a couple of wine that are available by the glass and tasting a splash and then ordering a bottle/s for the table. I told our waiter of my selections and he informed me just order the Zinfandel because he considered it much better. So, we ordered wine, cocktails and starters. Everything about the service was in slow motion. We then ordered dinner, my vegetable plate was exceptional but my wife’s scallops were horrible. The overriding issue was it took almost an hour to get the entrées. We did have three different wait staff tells us they were “plating are meals” over a 15 minute time frame. All I wanted to do was get the hell out of that restaurant. In general, food was on average with terrible service. I drove past Pricci’s, The Fish Market, and many other fine restaurant for sub-par dining experience.

    Have heard a lot of great things about this place, finally got to try it on my birthday. I got the fried chicken which was juicy and delicious and the perfect sized portion. Enjoyed the biscuits and got mac and cheese on the side - also wonderful! We had cocktails which were also good. Our server was nice but afterwards I realized that I had never heard a server say "No" to requests as much as we did there...I asked if it was possible to get all white meat with the chicken - response was no. My husband asked if he could swap the grits that came with his flounder for another veggie - response was no. But other than that, this place has a wonderful ambience and the food was great!

    I sat at the bar for a weeknight dinner. The bartender was knowledgeable...I followed all of his recommendations (for appetizers, dinner, drinks AND dessert) and was not disappointed at all. The servers and bartenders were friendly, attentive and full of nightlife recommendations. They were not intrusive, but made me feel like I was an old friend. Each course was delicious...but my favorite would have the be the delicious cocktails--strong and unique. The décor was beautiful, the restaurant was not too loud, the food was wonderful, and the service was the best part.

    Sunday brunch is with Jazz, this time a trio: trumpet, bass, and banjo ... so sorta Dixieland Jazz. Food was trendy and Southern inspired. Portions were smallish and if you are picky ... well, you probably will find the food a bit odd. I had the cornbread french toast ... which fell apart when I touched it with my fork. There were just two small pieces, and some blueberry compote, disguised as syrup. Let's face it, it was just odd. But, hey, it is a trendy place. You have to go with the flow.

    I'm picky. I admit it. I like this restaurant's decor and location (easy on and off Peachtree Rd.), particularly for lunch, but the food is a little hit-or-miss. Starting with appetizers, we had the cornbread and the pecan pimento cheese log. The cornbread comes in 3 sticks. Slightly sweet, served with softened butter and honey. The pecan pimento cheese log was too hard to spread, but the flavors were good. The crackers served with the log are too soft to really enjoy with the pimento cheese, so we left half the log. I love pimento cheese, but I would pass on the log in the future. My dining companion had the meatloaf special and enjoyed it, but picked at the collard greens, which were not up to snuff. I had the pork sandwich. It was very very strange. It wasn't all country ham and the other meat was a fatty mystery. It claimed to be pulled pork" but it was jus a couple slices of country ham and the mystery meat. That the cheese was gooey is the best compliment. I kept trying to like it (the buttered, fried bread surrounding the odd interior ingredients is quite good), but walked away noting "never again." The fries were okay. There was some odd flavor from the oil. Not sure what they are fried in. I'd skip those again next time too. So, next time I'd try something else, but not sure I would make it my go-to spot for a business lunch in the future.

    We dined here on a Friday night before a birthday celebration the next day i.e. we did not want to disturb our kitchen. This was a first visit and from the friendly greeting by the valet parker to the careful table selection by the hostess and a birthday greeting from the restaurant we were made welcome and before selecting our food were already comfortable with the experience to come. We chose a regional specialty for our appetizer the tomato pie and it was light, on a flaky crust and topped with red and yellow tomatos along with fresh herbs; just delicious. Next my wife enjoyed the trout with farm fresh vegetables noting that the serving was enough for two. The salmon cake special caught my attention and the two meaty cakes were served on a bed of fresh spinach and to accompany i ordered the miniature egg plant which was perfectly grilled and tender. For beverages we chose a white Burgundy with was excellent. I plan to add this restaurant to my regular list!

    The family treated me to the Jazz Brunch on Father's Day. I really enjoyed the beignets for the appetizer and my main course was tasty. The food portions are good and the band was a nice touch. A little pricey but worth it if you like quality food and service.

    Started off with great cocktails (martinis were only $5!!) and wonderful appetizers. The Spring Vegetable Tart was memorable and the Deviled Eggs the best I've ever had and I don't particulary care for them normally. I had hoped to have the Fried Chicken but it wasn't the right day for that. All of our dinner entrees were very good though. Topped it off with the Milk Cake for dessert. We had a very personable server that made the meal even more enjoyable. All in all a great dining experience.

    I was one of the first patrons in line when it opened for lunch on Wednesday May 4, 2016. I read that once the fried chicken is gone... So I planned to be there early and it worked, despite Atlanta traffic. I met an older woman who was after the fried chicken also. A most pleasant, knowledgeable, refined lady. She gave me info about other fried chicken choices in the city. She sat at her table and we chatted in between bites. She received her fried chicken first, though my order was placed first which is the reason for the 4/5 stars. Crispy,tender, juicy, well seasoned. All that! I had the spring vegetable tart as an appetizer. Buttery, flaky crust with crisp colorful vegetables. Magic. I shall return!

    I took my mother to this restaurant because we wanted to try something different. I had been hearing great things about the fried chicken and this restaurant did not disappoint. I love southern comfort foods and this food was delicious. The fried chicken and mac and cheese were great. I am sure they have some other great items on the menu.

    The decor was beautiful modern layout with large bar area, sitting right on Peachtree. Wide variety of wines at medium to expensive range. Southern recipes prepared by a skilled chef. We will definitely return!

    Our Watershed birthday dinner was not worth spending $250 on. I will not return. I have been there 3 times and for the money, it is a no go in the future. The catfish was over cooked, the waitress was surly, the outdoor table was warped so your drinks would tip over. You can cook a $34 steak better at home. The chicken dumplings were ok. If you must go, the best part of the night was the crab dip with nice toasted bread, a beer and the ability to sit on Peachtree Street in lovely weather. The food was just not good for the cost. They should lower the prices and season the food.

    Urban industrial decor, friendly service, and yummy choices make this a great lunch choice. Lining up along the southern food spectrum with some classical touches makes this a fun eating experience For example today's special was meatloaf, mashed potato and greens, How much more southern could that be?.Juicy flavorful meatloaf with an inspired brown gravy. makes a great casual business lunch with food to comfort and charm.

    Had to wait for a table but it was well worth It! Great bartenders at the bar in the front of the house---Marvelous martinis! Had great steaks in the restaurant and all three of us enjoyed the atmosphere, food, and wait staff---super personality on the waitress---felt like a member of the family! Make reservations ahead of time---especially for large groups as there were four large groups the night we were there.

    They were the pioneers of "updated Southern" cuisine, but sadly have become rather bland. Went for the Tuesday night catfish fry. Well cooked, but almost no seasoning or flavor. Fries were overdone and hard- and what they call a hush puppy is a WHITE FLOUR tasteless concoction that only looks like a hush puppy. Did they hide the spices in the kitchen? I am sorry to say JCT kitchen does a much better version of this concept. Decor was nice. Service was good. Otherwise, meh.

    Came here while in town with a group of friends. The atmosphere was really cool. You kind of feel like those cool people in the background of commercials. The staff was very friendly. I had some amazing dirty martini that had blue cheese stuffed olives. My shrimp dish (that I don't remember the name) was to die for. Delicious and spicy. We had such a great time at this place that we probably wouldn't have left if they stayed open later. Will definitely come back next time I'm in Atlanta.
