I recently went to Cowtippers to grab a quick dinner. In spite of the friendly staff and fast service, I don't think I will be back. The food simply wasn't good. I ordered a chicken-fried steak with fries and sauteed onions. Nothing on the plate was good. The steak was massive (about 3 times as large as I expected for... More

I had the salmon and veggie kabobs, my husband had the flank steak, both were delicious. Service was awesome and they were playing good music!

Amazing atmosphere and we were so lucky to have a beautiful night and eat at one of the patio tables. The filet was mouth watering!

Chillax here. Patio or dine in it's refreshing to eat at a restaurant that doesn't make you pay for its fancy decor. Chicken Salad was huge and tequila delish. Delightfully great service! Well worth a quick lunch destination.

Nice place for lunch, decent food, large portions, with good service and great atmosphere. Caters to the LGBT community, but is certainly friendly to all, as well as being pet friendly. Good place for things like a chicken sandwich, burgers, pot roast sandwich etc as well as having larger plate dinner options available and absolutely wonderful bloody Mary's!!! DRINK MENU... More

We stopped in for lunch on a weekday. The place was very quiet, which was what we were looking for. The menu is very good, the food was very good, and the server was excellent. Decent beer menu too.

Cowtippers has been a popular eatery since the days it was converted from an Old Hickory House. Food quality is mixed -- very much depends on what one orders. The building and furnishing are dark and aging. Hamburgers are now in the $10-11 range (before tax and tip, of course) with one side! I think customers will continue coming, not... More

Cowtippers is a good choice for comfortable lunch or dinner. It has been an Atlanta Institution for the Gay Community Diners for many years, but is also enjoyed by everyone. Food is simple and well prepared. Sandwiches, salads and light dishes.

The atmosphere is very relaxed. Perhaps a mix of sports bar and bbq place feel. The server (Dean) was excellent. Everyone is very fast and professional. A daily special is offered and Dean offered some food tips based on what we were in the mood for. Went around 2pm on a Sunday and ample parking as well as seating was... More
