I had the spicy shrimp. As noted on the menu, it is heavily seasoned with black pepper. It was pretty good, but I'd get something different next time. We had the fried crawfish tails, and those were really good, as was the cheese cake. The service was excellent, and friendly. Definitely worth a visit.

I normally don't like cajun cuisine. But I have to admit that I was very pleasantly surprised by my meal at McKinnon's. My meal which consisted of red bean soup, salmon with corn/aioli relish and bread pudding was scrumptious. The service was professional and friendly. The only minor negative was that they had no beer on tap.

This was our 3rd visit, and we were not disappointed. Don't be fooled by the strip mall location. You are personally greated, and the dining room is intimate. The wait staff was attentive, but not intrusive. We ordered the grouper and the soft shell crab, and were very pleased. We also look for local restaurants that offer more than any... More

I love McKinnon's. From the elegant ambiance, to the owner, Aziz, who personally greets nearly every guest most every night of the week, to the wonderful menu options, this restaurant is great. It's a little "old school," and I mean that in the most complimentary way. If you want a warehouse-style restaurant that is so noisy you can't carry on... More

We're visiting ATL & was looking for a seafood type restaurant, so we decided on this place. The service was great! The food was average, there was nothing great about the food. They were kind of skimpy with their fried oysters, 4 oysters for 10 bucks however, they were really good!!! The Ginger Crusted snapper w/orange jalapeño sauce was more... More

Was recently in Atlanta and was walking about the BuckHead section and saw a sign that Creole Cajun Cuisine. Decided to view the menu and saw that there were many treats I don't usually get to see in New Jersey. Went to dinner the following evening and had an excellent meal and experience.

We have eaten here many times. I have always been satisfied with the food, the selection, the service and the presentation. They make sure to treat you as friends in their house, coming to your table to welcome you, to check on you, and to see if there is anything more you need, and this is in addition to your... More

Loved the service and atmosphere. Most of the food was very good. I didn't love the stuffed eggplant casserole though.

In a recent get-away trip to Atlanta-Buckhead, we found this restaurant on Trip Advisor. We were looking for good cajun food and boy did we find it. We loved this place!!!! The food was SO good. It was Friday night and they had some folks singing in the piano and it was an absolute joy to see and hear.
