The Atlanta Journal-Constitution's John Kessler describes The Pullman as a bar for twenty-somethings once they're all grown up. It's a place where parons can "share a few pints with friends, as well as a place to park your stroller while [they] do it." The food is good and the portions are large, maybe even defiantly so for a gastropub. Kessler recs the barbecue ribs with peach glaze and a sweet potato and plantain hash as well as the Sriracha wings but mentions that service can be shaky and the beer selection could be better. The restaurant serves food past midnight most nights and gets two-stars from the AJC.
