I have been going to Six Feet Under for 3 years now and, by far, this has to be my most favorite seafood place to dine. It's busy, a little noisy but the food is incredible. I am a fan of the Spicy Rat Toes, their Scallops & Shrimp in parchment is divine. Their Fish & Chips (yes..chips not french fries..are the best). I liked their Clam Chowder when they put the jalapenos in them but they haven't done that for a couple of years. BRING IT BACK, please!! All in all a marvelous place for seafood.

Went on a Saturday for brunch. Diners have a choice of sitting at the bar, sitting at one of the booths that line the southern wall of the restaurant, or one of the numerous high bar tables and chairs in the middle of the restaurant. The high bar tables seem to be popular for groups of 6 or more. The drink menu was substantial and the main menu offered standard fare. I was just disappointed that our meal took nearly 45 minutes for it to arrive. The fish and chips I had (three palm-size fish fillets) and the omelet my fellow diner had were unremarkable. Our waitress was nice, though, I came to the conclusion that it was understaffed and this could be why it took so long for our food to come out. One waitress to man all the tables of the restaurant and one person behind the bar: that certainly is a tall order. Kudos to both of them for holding down the restaurant.

When I first moved to Atlanta from my hometown, Toronto, I wasn't impressed with the music that's played in the clubs/bars. Worst of all, there wasn't much diversity at most of these places and the crowd was very clickish. As I met more and more people who shared similar tastes in music I got a better sense of where to go for that right type of groove / vibe that I was searching for. Behold MJQ Concourse, or as my friends and I refer to it as "MJ Queezy." A friend introduced me to this place a few years back, and at first glance this place is a little bit deceiving. It trips me out everytime when I bring a guest to the front door of this "underground" club. Shiiiet, if I could take a snapshot of people's reaction when they first see this joint. So, as you walk in through the "shack" that shrowds this underground club, you pass by various types of people all of which are there to genuinely just have a good time. While you're at the bar make sure to take a look around and enjoy the graphics painted on the walls. When your bartender gets your drinks, you'll find that they're inexpensive and the bartenders are pretty cool. As you walk around the bar to scope out the scene, there's no need to search for the vip section because at MJQ everyone is an equal. So for those of you who are looking for a place to pop bottles, and floss your ice this ain't the place for you. Now, to touch on the most important "goodtime" factor for me which is, "music." Coming from Toronto, my taste in music leans more towards the underground / Reggae / jazzy / soul / Dub / Rnb / conscious type. After a long work week, I want to go to a place that plays music that I can enjoy. On Fridays this place gives me that "fix." Their dj line up is on point, and their MC, Dres tha Beatnik, for the evening always gets the crowd hyped up. The women:men ratio could be better, although throughout the years I've seen it improve gradually. One thing to note is that, the women that do go on a Friday night, although not as many as one would hope, are for the most part bangin' and easy to talk to. So, to the women reading this please bring your girlfriends. Us guys that visit this place are genuinely cool dudes w/the intention of just meeting cool girls like you. Well, to summarize MJQ is a dope place. You can never go wrong with it.
