When you arrive at Bone’s, the building is very unassuming. With a simple awning and a small front drive, you might just pass it by. Trust me, you will be sorry if you do! But, as most fine dining restaurants, be sure you make a reservation.
There is a reason why Bone’s Steakhouse in Atlanta is always listed as one of the best restaurants in Atlanta, or for that matter the US. The place oozes an old school vibe. You almost expect to see the Rat Pack sitting in the corner drinking martinis!
I was in Atlanta for business recently, so my parents went along with me. A small family vacation, and it happened to be my mother’s birthday! There’s not a better birthday dinner than celebrating at Bone’s. They really make you feel special and important. Check out how they decorate the table below. So cute! I haven’t seen any other restaurant do this. Very cool.
I have been a customer at Bone’s for a long time, so I even have a profile on file. The General Manager just happens to have a connection with Kentucky so I contacted him before we arrived in Atlanta. He was so nice. He greeted us warmly at the door and showed us to the table. Our table was in the Dog Room, that’s where I like to sit. Portraits of regal dogs adorn the dark paneled walls. Glass wine cases and low lighting complete the ambiance. Everybody looks better in low light!
It was time to order dinner. For my appetizer I ordered the lump crab cocktail. The cocktail was served with both a cocktail sauce and a remoulade sauce. You can’t believe how firm and delicious it was. Fresh off the boat!
Soon after the starters were taken away and the crumbs were swept away, our main course arrived. Bone’s is a steakhouse, so I ordered steak. I can grill a good steak, but I can’t get the crust to turn out like professional grills do. The filet arrived, cooked perfectly and already portioned out for me (dad and I always split a steak). It was so tender I really didn’t even need a knife. The outside of the steak was perfectly crusted.
A birthday dinner wouldn’t be complete without a birthday cake! And at Bone’s they give you about half of a cake. Great for sharing, and it’s ice cream! Delicious!
The last part of the birthday celebration is my favorite. I’m sure you have gotten the connection between the name Bone’s and dogs by now. When you are leaving the restaurant you are presented with a cute little box to take home. Guess what it is? A box of cookies, shaped like bones!
Thanks to Bone’s we had a great birthday celebration for Mom. I would tell you how old she is, but I would have to kill you. Ha! xoxo
