No question, Atlanta is the food mecca of the Southeast. And no matter which neighborhood or meeting district you plan your meeting in, there are plenty of restaurants to impress your group. Here are ten great Atlanta restaurants perfect for group dining...



Trader Vic’s ($$$)

Mere blocks from the convention center, this international restaurant has something for everyone. Once business is done, make sure there's a round of the original Mai Tais!


Sweet Georgia's Juke Joint ($$)

This spot is the most happening jive joint in Downtown. With an abundance of Southern comfort food and some of the best live jazz and blues, there's no need to leave for anywhere else.


Sun Dial ($$$)

Located inside Westin Peachtree Plaza, Sun Dial is a locally-sourced luxury establishment. Its panoramic windows showcase the cityscape, and because it's situated adjacent to many major hotels, it's a great middle-ground for continuing business.

The BQE Lounge ($$)

It's no-frills and all chill at the BQE. There is something incomparable about sitting in an NYC-style lounge, eating distinctively Southern food and listening to soft R&B.


TWO Urban Licks ($$)

Known for their giant wood pit rotisserie, TWO Urban Licks is one of the premier establishments in Poncey-Highland. After some serious meat indulgence, attendees can walk off their food comas along Atlanta BeltLine, just steps from the front door.

South City Kitchen ($$$)

Southern cuisine (most notable their she-crab stew) is the mainstay of this charming restaurant, nestled between the historic homes of Midtown, with bustling nightlife and local gems surrounding!

Loca Luna ($$)

Latin American flair is abundant at Atlanta's premier tapas restaurant. Shareable plates are great for groups and afterward, your attendees can meander around Midtown and experience the nightlife.


Ani's Cafe & Bistro ($$)

Housed in a converted old home in Buckhead, this French Mediterranean restaurant is quaint but impressive. If it's nice out, request the patio—its charming ambiance will inspire your group (especially paired with wine!).

The Southern Gentleman ($$)

Located in Atlanta's fashion epicenter, The Southern Gentleman serves regionally sourced contemporary Southern cuisine where the bartenders have perfected the elusive mint julep in a surprisingly chic setting.

Antica Posta ($$$)

Bringing a bit of Northern Italy to Buckhead, guests can enjoy the best fish and vegetables Tuscan dining has to offer. Afterward, attendees can soak in the atmosphere at one of the many lounges nearby.
