I wish I went to this place during the week--I'm sure my experience might have been a bit different. Atlanta is a town that loves brunch; so much so that they are willing to pay exorbitant amounts for it. Atlantans are also willing to wait inordinate mounts of time for brunch--go figure. These are people that will honk violently at you if you are caught more than .05 seconds at a green light without moving. They will, however, wait hours for a seat at a brunch place without batting an eye.
J. Christopher is a chain only open for breakfast and lunch. While it is always busy, it is a veritable pile of chaos on Sundays. The Woodstock location is airy and clean. The service is friendly and efficient, if a bit frazzled. Again, this has been my experience on a Sunday--I'm sure this is not the case on Tuesday afternoon. Despite of the crowds of crying infants and overcaffeinated yuppies, the restaurant always offers delicious (if unoriginal) dishes served quickly and still hot. If you want farm-to-table handmade marmalades, J.Christopher is not the place. If you want an artisan frittata stuffed with hand-picked wild mushrooms, head to Midtown. If you want generous portions, efficient service, and a casual atmosphere, J. Christopher's is ideal.
Their prices are a bit high for their offerings, but the generous portions ensure that no one will leave hungry. Overall good quality in all aspects.
