And we  thought “location” was a real estate mantra. The Horseradish Grill takes that principle to the world of cuisine and, together, their location and the food they serve are a combination unsurpassed. Where West Wieuca Road emerges from crossing our beloved Chastain Park, right there on Powers Ferry Road, the Horseradish Grill awaits your pleasure.

Known as Atlanta’s oldest restaurant in continuous operation, the Horseradish Grill started out as a country store that fronted the owner’s 200-acre farm and orchards.

When Powers Ferry Road was widened in the 1930s, the original store came down. One of Langford’s descendants rebuilt the store. Langford began serving sandwiches and barbecue to golfers just completing their rounds at Chastain Park. The country store became a place to savor, right where the bar of the Horseradish Grill stands today. The relaxed décor we find there evolved from the country store, an equestrian theme introduced by an earlier owner, and from the Grill’ssense of what their guests desire.

That sense is nowhere better demonstrated than in the menu you’ll peruse at the Horseradish Grill.

Choose from wood-grilled grouper, trout, or salmon. Start with a variety of today’s favorite salads – Cobb, Caesar, wedge, or poached pear – or add chicken, shrimp, or salmon and make salad your main course if that’s your mood. Perhaps the imagination and sensitivity to please that underlies everything at the Horseradish Grill shows up best in their small plates offerings. From down-home to the Pacific rim they’ve orchestrated fried green tomatoes or shrimp &grits, spicy North Carolina style barbecue or even tempura-fried okra., Oh, and if the venison meatloaf is on the menu, we highly recommend you give it a try.

Tipping the hat to the country-eatery days, the Horseradish Grill has a blue-plate special for every day, Monday through Friday. Flank steak and fried trout are just a few of the comforts you’ll find. They seem selected to offer a combination of old memories and new. Not a bad take of what’s made the Horseradish Grill such a successful standby for so long.
