A favorite with many of the residents, this deli serves guests in simple but comfortable settings. The General Muir is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner all week, with a special brunch menu served over the weekends.
I took my family to TGM's Sunday Night Spaghetti Dinner for Mother's Day this past weekend and was completely blown away! I've been to TGM for lunch many times before and have loved everything I've ever tried, but this was my first time going to the Sunday dinner. 3 courses for $17(!!!), it included: a small salad, a LARGE bowl of delicious spaghetti with the most melt in your mouth meatballs I've ever come in contact with, a garlic knot, and then to finish it off you get a yummy dessert that changes every week. I haven't been this pleased with a meal in a very long time and absolutely cannot wait to go back!
Our meal was amazing! I had the seared trout that was prepared perfectly. My friend had
the reuben (with the works) which he enjoyed (he is from NY). He was very impressed. He also had the rice pudding that was like not other he had ever eaten! Nice atmosphere and
good service. We will return.
Loved our meal and the bar and table service were excellent. Love the variety of choices. We will return and recommend.
Went for a special occasion family dinner. Really enjoyed the cozy atmosphere and small large plate selection. My favorite thing to eat was the deviled eggs and rice pudding for dessert. Classics, but unique and delicious!
Didn't realize Sundays' menu was "Spaghetti Sunday". Meal was good, but unexpected.
Incredible meal. My friends and I ordered many different items of the menu and all of them were superb. I highly recommend this spot.
Deli night on Monday was amazing!
Always consistent food and service. Friendly and knowledgeable staff. Best burger and reuben in Atlanta. Desserts delicious. We love love this place
Everything was very good but the price is very high for what you get.
It was a Friday night, so busy as usual. We sat outside but the heaters kept the patio comfortable. We ordered the pastrami with chopped liver sandwich and full-on reuben, both of which were outstanding as usual. The sandwiches were large enough that we only ate half of each and left with lunch for the next day. Fries were cooked well and stayed crispy even when they started cooling off. Nothing to keep us from coming back in the future to this great neighborhood gem
A little underwhelmed. Maybe expecting a little more. Service was fine, and food was good, but nothing was exceptional. Would probably give them another try.
Been to GM several times with the last two visits being very mediocre due to poor service. To begin, they should advertise that Sundays have a limited menu with a special Spaghetti/Meatballs 3-course menu with salad and dessert. My party stayed. Not crowded but service was slow. Took over 5 minutes for our server to greet us at our table. Once our order was placed, it was very hard to flag him down for more dressing, silverware, and water, as he poured wine and had conversations at other tables. Delivered cold fries with the corned beef and had to flag down another waiter to ask our waiter to come back to our table. Not very attentive to our needs at all. The food is very delicious but bad service, for me, trumps the food, especially when there are so many great restaurants in Atlanta where one can spend money.
It was great!
Still one of the best burgers in town . Even better if you have it topped with a slice of pastrami. Maybe the size of the side dishes it is shrinking a bit, Or maybe I’m just really hungry when I go there .
Came for date night, had been wanting to try a long time, nothing about the experience met expectations. Service was inattentive and slow. The food was not memorable.
Wow! The Pastrami and Corned Beef are made in-house and are simply mind blowing. The best I have ever had. Better than any NYC Deli, period. Both are exceptionally well paired with the house Creature Comforts Reclaimed Rye Ale. The Poutine was really good with the Corned Beef crumbles on it. Skip the coleslaw.
Worst menu I have ever seen at a restaurant. Very limited. Not sure how they stay open.
Burgers were delicious! A must try are the black and white cookies!
We loved the atmosphere, all the staff was courteous and helpful, the food was amazing! Cannot wait to go again!
We dine at General Muir from time to time and typically have an enjoyable experience. It's not one of our few favorite go-to restaurants, but it's good and generally reliable. Our most recent visit was a family/friends gathering, and we forgot that the noise level could be quite high, which unfortunately somewhat diminished this experience. The smoked trout toast was particularly tasty. The duck, however, was on the tough side, which seems to be a risk when ordering duck in general. Even if you're not a big cheesecake fan, their NY style is a standout.
Impeccable service and delicious food, as always!
Always a great time. We love taking friends who are new to the area here. The service is great and the setting is nice. Food is always top notch. The fried pastrami is the best!
We've dined at TGM since they opened and their excellent food quality is consistent for dinner and brunch. I appreciate that they change up the menu seasonally. The salads are always outstanding and out of the ordinary. The salad was larger than I remember which was perfect to share and made it more palatable at $12. However, I never liked (and still don't) the unisex bathrooms.
Best meal we have had in a long time- everything from the food, ambiance, service was excellent. Dreaming about the deviled eggs and rice pudding. Can’t wait to go back!
Surprised that the dinner menu is do limited. We had the pastrami and it was delicious... hot and super tender!
Terrible service, ate dinner at 5:30 and our entrees took 45 minutes to come out.
This is our go-to restaurant for all occasions. It never ceases to impress. It's special dinners are wonderful. A great place.
The husband wanted a good burger, and that is exactly what we got with the burger stack and fries. There are other interesting options on the menu, but we were in and out with our quick and simple burger pit stop. Service was fast and friendly.
Decent food, but empty atmosphere for a Saturday night. Food was decent but nothing special.
Great burger menu not very big and not good for kids
We ate on a Sunday evening and it was their Spaghetti Prix Fix Menu. I certainly didn't drive all the way from Jasper, GA to eat Spaghetti at a Jewish Deli Style restaurant. Fortunately, they had a Matzoh Ball Soup and Pastrami sandwiches on the menu too or it would have been a disaster. I had recently taken my Mom there on a Saturday and they were closed to the public for a Bat Mizvah.
Great Food! Loved the house soda!
This is our second visit and we enjoyed it even more than the first. Great service, well-prepared kosher or quasi-kosher cooking. Sunday night has a limited menu but still enjoyable.
The food was subpar and the service was worse. What waitperson delivers food and does not ask if you require anything else. I had to get up and go to the Kitchen. To seek what I wanted
It was my first time there. We ate on the patio and had a very nice time. There were people at other tables, but the spacing gives the feeling of privacy. The service was attentive and helpful, and the food was very good.
Always great food and nice service. This place has been a favorite for years now.
An absolute great experience from the minute we stepped in until we left. Fantastic service. The matzoh ball soup was rated a 10, as was the pastrami and the roasted chicken was excellent. My colleagues cannot wait to come back to Atlanta to dine here again and perhaps as one said breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Food was good. We were there on a Sunday night so it was a limited menu, but we still got what we wanted. What bothered me was the state of the restaurant. There was food littering the floor the whole time we were there and one of the bathrooms was totally destroyed. That inattention to detail is not good, especially on a night that was not busy.
Service was very bad...slow, indifferent, lack of care. Took forever to get wine and food to the table. Food was disappointing...soup returned, kale appetizer cold (probably because it wasn't delivered in timely manner), and fries not cooked properly. I doubt we will be back.
The corned beef was completely tasteless, like eating tender cardboard. The restaurant was listed among the top 50 restaurants in Atlanta by Atlanta Magazine. The food critic should be fired; he’s either corrupt or in competent.
Service was fine and ambience was okay. Still the food quality makes this the worst deli I ever experienced.
