My husband and I stumbled on 5th Ivory without even knowing it was a bar and restaurant. From the outside, it may not instantaneously look like much. At first, it looks like you grandma's house with it's wrap around porch and traditional home charm. This was enough to intrigue us to enter. I am so glad we did! What a hidden gem of midtown Atlanta.

First if all, I have to give a huge shout out to Cam, the head bartender and waitress who runs the place. She is as down to earth and sweet as you can get. She will make you feel at home.

Although 5th Ivory specializes in a classic throw back feel to when side cars were the drink of choice and piano players ruled the scene, it is contemporary and fresh. Nothing about the place is pretentious. The cliental is a mix of young and old. This bar has a different live piano player every night, making the place soothing for a drink with you partner or an event with friends. The bar area takes up the downstairs area while the restaurant is upstairs. This is perfect for a quiet dinner, and then a chance to mingle after.

The food: hands down among the best southern food I have had. The menu has an assortment of salads, sandwiches, and southern favorites, but the fried chicken and chicken pot pie stand out. The prices are extremely reasonable ($7 to $10 for most entrees) and the dessert choices just seal the deal.

If you are looking for a quiet night out with an elegant piano backdrop, great drinks and delicious food at a reasonable price, 5th Ivory is a must try. Just a humble and amazingly relaxing joint in the center of midtown.

Found this little gem when we were invited to a wine dinner there. Everything about it was excellent. Great food, great atmosphere, and most excellent wine.

An old victorian house converted to a restaraunt. 2.5 blocks from the fox theater. Self parking or valet, a public lot on the corner of sixth opposite the restaraunt on fifth. Park there and cut thru lot to the Fifth. Then on to the FOX of after the FOX for a drink and munchies. The fried chicken is great. Very clean, nicely appointed interior. Friendly staff. Worth the time to check this place out. Not a big dinner plate, this is a small plate place. But soooo good. I'm going back for more!

The appetizers are really very good. Many are southern standards but updated for the better. Valet parking available. Restrooms upstairs and down.

My husband and I had tickets to the Fox Theater and wanted eat before the show began. Living an hour away and with Friday traffic in Atlanta we decided to leave a little early and find a place to relax and unwind, good thing we did. We arrived at the Fifth Ivory to find that we were the only ones there, which turned out great. We were sat in the downstairs dining area which is very small and imitate with a fireplace, dark wood trim and floors and dark curtains surrounding a large bay window perfect for sitting at watching outside. The waiter was amazing, spoken which just added to the ambience. We were so impressed with the place that after the show we came back to have a night cap and enjoy the piano area and bar, both of which are great. We can't wait to go back in the warmer weather to sit outside in the huge front porch and people watch while the music plays.
