Fodor's Review

For traditional Southern food—fried chicken, ham steak, and turkey with dressing—insiders head to Colonnade, a local institution since 1927 and a magnet for gay men and the elderly. The interior, with patterned carpeting and red banquettes, is a classic version of a 1950s restaurant.

Southern cooking - with a full bar

Join the "gays and grays" at this Atlanta institution. Good food offering the Southern classics. Almost like eating at mama's - but mama probably didn't offer a full bar to go along with her fried chicken and southern veggies. You may have to wait on Sunday afternoons after church, but it's worth the wait and the people watching is an enjoyable pasttime. The mix is of the regulars, the older set that grew up eating at the Colonnade and the young

professionals living ITP (inside the Perimeter). Some folks don't care for the Colannade but the repeat business keeps it busy and and are thankful that the Colannade keeps on going with very few changes.
