Jack & Diane's Opens in Buckhead

Atlanta's newest restaurant is bringing together two of America's favorite pastimes‹sports and music. Developed by the owners of 10 Degrees South, Jack & Diane's, Genuine Food and Drink melds the best of both worlds as Atlanta's premier sports and rock Œn' roll bar in a vintage-inspired setting.

Located in the Chastain Square shopping center on Roswell Road in Buckhead, the 4,000 square foot interior of the restaurant seats 200 including the bar and cocktail areas. The 1,200 square foot patio adds tables and lounge seating for an additional 50 guests. The design team from Atlanta-based Wolf Design Group carefully designed the space to create a sophisticated yet energetic ambiance that perfectly reflects the gastropub's unique character. 

Throughout the sports and music haven, guests will notice vintage photographs and paintings of athletic and rock legends including The Rolling Stones and The Beatles. Open for lunch and dinner daily, Jack & Diane's serves American fare with a modern twist on favorite classic dishes.

The gastropub's menu has been carefully crafted by Derek and Diane Anthony, who are also responsible for all the culinary creations at 10 Degrees South. Not only does Executive Chef Diane Anthony preside over the menu at Jack & Diane's, which includes upscale bar fare such as gourmet burgers and hearty steaks, but she also inspired the namesake for this new venture. The name and concept, selected to pay tribute to both his strong family ties and his newly acquired American citizenship, were chosen by owner Justin Anthony in honor of his mother's love for rock music and the passion for sports exhibited by his grandfather Jack, a World War II veteran.

Taking another note from its sister restaurant, the Jack & Diane's signature cocktail list pays homage to the neighborhood feel of its heritage with drink names specially inspired by a handful of 10 Degrees South's regular guests. Also adding to the authentic sports bar ambiance of the eatery, the full bar offers guests a selection of 10 beers on tap.

$10 hamburgers at Chastain Square! Not in this economy.

Hey Tommy, go to McDonalds. You must not go out in Atlanta. That's normal during any economy.

While the service was great the food was okay. I had the fish and chips and the fish was not light and flaky as it should be. It was tough and heavy. The chicken pot pies were good as was the Kentucky dessert. The restaurant itself is very nice and easy to watch a game from any table. I hope the food improves as it is nice to have a new restaurant like this in the neighborhood.
