“Overpriced, but solid.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 June 2014

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.

“Worst place for breakfast”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 May 2014

Lousy lousy lousy breakfast. Eggs are flat generally brown on the edges and they never try to correct. No more chances

“Don't go to Public House /J Christopher's by Roswell square”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 February 2014

We went for brunch and found Public House food to taste more like bad cafeteria food.
I had the burger and it was a thin, frozen patty. It reminded me of ones served in grade school. I would be embarrassed to serve it if I were management !
Others in my group ordered waffles topped with strawberries . It was a sad display of a small waffle with less than one whole strawberry . This was a $ 70 brunch for four persons who had 2 coffees and 2 waters .
There are PLENTY of other places to eat in the area. Do not eat here.
There is a J. Christopher's on 92 near Crossville Rd that is better

“The go to place for breakfast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 November 2013

I just like the breakfasts here. Good food, good service. Regret disagreeing w/previous review but this is much better than Cracker Barrel (and I am a CB fan). J Christopher's does breakfast right.
