What the Food Critics are Saying

“People who eat out a lot and chase dining trends love this place. Chef Robert Phalen cooks with a kind of wit you never see anywhere else. He might place fried quail, guinea fowl, chicken and duck eggs on a plate, like something out of a Dr. Seuss illustration. He might top a marrow bone with smoked razor clams or roast a whole tuna collar that’s so big it wouldn’t fit on your Thanksgiving turkey platter. (Get it, if available). His crab risotto, which gets seasonal garnishes, might engender its own religion.” – Atlanta Journal-Constitution

“Very few things in life are served to you on a silver platter these days, never mind with an icy cold can of Schlitz malt liquor. Luckily, you can cross this one off your bucket list during Sunday brunch at One Eared Stag. The Chef's Breakfast includes four small portions of whatever the kitchen is feeling that morning. A recent rendition included fluffy pancakes slathered in duck liver butter and topped with crispy fried chicken; tender hanger steak tossed with springy greens; a coddled egg sprinkled with salty salmon roe; and a slice of seared pork belly on a bed of homemade kimchee with an egg sunny side up. Each dish is artfully arranged on a shiny silver tray with a regal-looking can of Schlitz smack dab in the middle. Actually, the Schlitz pairs surprisingly well, the crisp, bubbly drink cutting through all the richness.” – Creative Loafing

“Robert Phalen probably wishes that people would stop talking about his burger, but it’s his own fault for concocting something this addictive—and giving it such a provocative name. The meat is 80 percent grass-fed beef and 20 percent bacon, which adds an echo of smoke to two charred patties—all oozing between an airy bun from Alon’s.” – Atlanta Magazine

Ambience

The décor is eclectic, with painted white, exposed brick walls and plenty of taxidermy (including, the namesake one-eared stag above the bar). A long communal table runs through the center of the dining room, adding to the neighborhood feel. Outside, a small patio offers umbrella-covered tables for al fresco dining.
