Finally made it over to Leon's last night, and was glad I did. Had heard concerns about wait times and food, but I did not experience that. We did wait for about an hour and change, but were able to have some frites (the dipping sauces are fun and good) with our first round on the front patio, which was enjoyable in and of itself. Definitely a different feel that than the local pub feel of BSP, this has a much more modern feel to it. The decor fits the crowd, which also a large blend. I found the service to be pretty much on par with BSP, which means to say, great. Attentive, knowledgeable, and friendly. Selection is more limited than the BSP, but is high quality. I came there for SW DIPA, but was impressed by the other offerings, as well. We all enjoyed our meals; good character to all the dishes. In the end, this place may be the best bargain in ATL. Great food, awesome beer, and all at very reasonable price. I am looking forward to coming back soon.

Visited Leon's for the first time this weekend. According to our waitress, Kathryn (who was absolutely amazing with recommendations and even took a beer back that I hated), these are the same guys that own The Brick Store.

The food was absolutely delicious. We had pub fries with all kinds of great dipping sauces, and the candied walnuts on the salad that I got must have been dusted with angel tears. They were out of two things that we ordered, but they brought us a free dessert to make up for it.

The beer selection is nowhere near as good as the Brick Store. The menu here is much more cocktail driven. However, the beers were decent if not rare. Combined with the service, food, and the totally rad Bocce court in the backyard, this is a fantastic spot.

met some high school friends at this joint. cool vibe - reformed antique store with a cool outdoor patio

tap selection was strong, but not groundbreaking - some standard (but great) belgians, founders reds rye, a terrapin, a southern tier or two, victory, new belgium and the like

food menu was thoughtful - a lot of small plates and sandwiches. We went with the calamari plate (nothing special), some frites that were paired with some great sauces and then I moved into the open faced brisket sandwich with a warm chickpea and cherry salad. overall, food was pretty impressive.

cool joint - right around the corner from the brickstore - decatur is a pretty solid hood

Had dinner at Leon's with my wife and an old friend, at his suggestion. What a great suggestion it turned out to be. The ambience was relaxed and cool casual. The service was outstanding and the young waitress was quite educated on beer, even offering recommendations with food pairings.
The food was outstanding. The roasted chicken and pomme frites were delicious. I enjoyed Terrapin Hopsecutioner on tap but their other selections ensured that I would be back to try them.
The prices were fairly reasonable, selection of beers was quite good and service was exceptional. A very pleasant evening indeed.

First time visiting Leon's and hope that there are many more visits to come.

We arrived at around 6:30 or so on a Friday evening, the place was pretty well full but there was no line or wait and was seated promptly. We choose to sit outside, since it was a nice evening and the place was pretty open to the outside anyway (all the windows and doors open). Seemed to be ample seating inside and out and had a good vibe going even though it was a bit early in the evening. The crowd seemed to have really picked up by the time that we left an hour and a half later. I didn't really get a good look at the interior, but I am sure that it is how others described it.

Upon being seated, we were greeted promptly by our server. As noted by others, the menus, both beer and food, are not overly extensive, which I view as a good thing for most top notch food places. As for the food menu, a nice variety of items to choose from. I had the burger and frites with a couple of Mikkeller East Kent Golding Single Hop IPA. The food was very well done and the frites were outstanding. As for the beer, the restaurant had a good list, not extensive as say the Brick Store, but they had a variety of styles to choose from.

The waiter was good, knew both the food and beer menu well and could talk very intelligently about the beers they had to offer. The prices were reasonable. Overall, as I noted above, I hope that this is the first of many visits to Leon's.
