Well I'm glad I asked if they have anything hoppy. They don't really promote there in house beers very well. But the belgian gold was quite tasty. The taste and color did not match the name! This beer was a triple. Once again not very good managment. The service was sub-par.But what a great place to hang out under the trees!
With some new managament and some employees with some pride instead with a chip on there shoulder this place could be very nice beer paradise. The appetizers were ok not enuff chips to finish the salsa or cheese dip!

I want to like this place more, I really do, but a brewpub that only has three of its own beers on tap really cannot get too high a mark.

Cavernous pub, with two large bars and scads of outdoor seating. Dog-friendly outdoors with lots of patrons taking advantage of this on a sunny day in Piedmont Park.

Nice sushi bar area, but didn't really want to try sushi while sitting outside on an 87 degree afternoon.

This place can get really crowded on a nice day, so keep that in mind.

5 guest taps to go along with their own three brews. Not much in the way of variety. Guiness was the only dark beer available. Sweetwater 420 also flowing.

Food was good. We tried two different chicken sandwiches and both were well prepared. Sushi we saw looked nice and folks seemed to be enjoying it.

The real downer of the trip was after we got home and realized the server had stuck an extra 12 bucks on the check - after we tipped 25% on a $35 tab. Call to the pub was met with deaf ears. Oh well, lots of other good places to drink.

Finally made it out to this brewpub...

Atmosphere is awesome - it's got a great view of the downtown Atlanta skyline and is right next to Piedmont Park with tons of outdoor seating. The inside is cozy with a fireplace and a decent amount of seating, but if you go and it's over 50 deg F outside there's no reason to go inside.

Quality is good. All beers I ordered came in room temperature, unmarked pint glasses with good amounts of head.

Service is good. It was pretty busy when I was there but everything came out pretty quickly. I didn't ask about beer but I did hear her describe their IPA as similar to SNPA, not entirely true but it makes sense for the majority of non-beer geeks.

Selection is solid. They had about five of their house beers on-tap along with the usual (macro) suspects in bottles.

Food was very good. I had the seafood dip and was pleasantly surprised.

Value is good. Draft beers were only a dollar when I was there, but I'm sure they're more than that normally.

Overall this place is worth a visit if you're in town and near Midtown/Buckhead. I'm excited to spend lazy Saturdays here during the summer.

Conveniently located near Piedmont Park in midtown Atlanta, the Park Tavern is easy to find. Parking is adequate, but the lot itself is not paved so it is rather rough. When you enter, the interior is quite inviting - dark but not dim, with simple and rugged decor and furniture making for a nice, laid-back atmosphere that says "comfy neighborhood tavern." Noise level is a bit high, but not unbearable and not too raucous. There are a few TVs, but the sound was off when I visited - apparently they save TV noise for a major event such as the Super Bowl. There is ample seating so the Park Tavern can accommodate a small, intimate gathering or a fairly large one. Waitstaff are alert, helpful, and well-trained. The beer is not terrific, but the Park Tavern is well worth a visit.

Part of a large park, outdoor tables offer a good relaxing place to have a beer or something to eat when the weather is suitable. Parking is plentiful as it is also for the park. It is important to know to enter downstairs as it was lcoked upstairs. There is a moderate sized bar and some tables inside. Their own taps plus 3 regular macros. The beer was so-so though the unfiltered seasonals, an IPA and a porter, were worth having. Brian is a younger brewmaster, and with a cask and experience, the place will pick up beer-wise.

Okay, everytime I visit Atlanta I make it a point to come here. I like the fantastic view, the neighborhood and the general hunting-lodge atmosphere of the place. A few days ago, on my wife's birthday, we went there and ate dinner. I had the salmon, she ordered the chicken whatever. I drank all 3 house beers, including a very fine pilsner and a great porter. Park Tavern seems to be the "red-headed stepchild" of brewerys in Atlanta...undeservedly so. The place is good, the food is good and the beer is good. Be fair and give it a try.

Park Tavern lures people in with its great patio, featuring a stunning view of the Atlanta skyline and the vast expanse of the park. The crowds are laid back and fun and most are getting thoroughly sloshed in the afternoons.

Park Tavern offers about 4 brews of their own at any given time. After many, many visits I offer one recommendation: skip them all. I've yet to have even a decent pint from there. Their poor excuse for a belgian golden lacks any hint of complexity, tasting like nothing but apples and flat seltzer. The pale ale has a metallic aspirin off flavor. Its as if the beer is more a gimmick or novelty that they treat as a feather in their cap. The brewmaster deserves a slap in the face, as he clearly doesn't even sample his own product.

Other than their dreadful brews, they offer BMC, Hoeggarden, Bass, and Stella. Stick with one of the those. Food is average, but pricey. Burgers aren't bad and they offer a mediterranean sampler that's tasty. Service is slow as our president doing a math problem.
