Take Me to The Shed- Again & Again!!!

When I wrote my first restaurant reviews two years ago it was The Shed at Glenwood Park, at that time it was attempting to discover its identity; the community of Glenwood Park was mostly vacant space as the economy was heading into the tank, but somehow time and perseverance can be quite magical. Now Glenwood Park is a bustling neighborhood with new condos being built, and owner Cindy Shera’s dream of creating a really hip restaurant/ bar where people can come to relax is a reality- it’s so happening. The concept that the Shed has become fills a niche in the ATL dining community that is too often lacking; it’s a place where one can simply order a few sliders, a beer and chill; or enjoy a classic memorable meal with friends.

Chef Lance Gummere is the genius in the kitchen; his talents are obvious. Stretching the palate experience by incorporating the freshest available ingredients with a twist that is only Lance’s. The Crystal Farm Butternut Squash Soup is pureed African squash with a touch of local wildflower honey cream, whipping cream and just a splash of housemade Tabasco pepper sauce- love that sneaky warm feeling it gives. The seared then braised Berkshire pork belly is the best I’ve had in this town. The tasty morsels of pork are simmered for 8 hours in a chicken stock that's reduced to glaze this tender succulent meat. The pan-fried chicken liver bacon bruschetta is absolutely stunning- the gaminess of the liver is rounded out but the smoky Benton’s bacon flavors and a zesty housemade mayonnaise; I was not a fan of chicken livers until I had these. My favorite of the larger plates is the Pork Dumplings. The pasta-like dough is filled with diced onion, oregano, and ground pork, topped with a thick red wine braising reduction, and served with shiitake mushrooms and a grainy mustard- don’t miss this comforting dish. Watch out for a goat or wild boar dumplings.

The Shed offers some outstanding recession buster deals that showcase Chef Lance’s abilities. Wednesdays are $3 slider nights. The fantastic Pork Schnitzel slider is a pan fried breaded cutlet that has a dab of housemade pear jam. Simplicity rules with the Fried Heirloom Tomato that’s served with a dollop of Sweet Grass Diary goat cheese. An alternative to a burger is the Chilled Roast Beef slider that’s has a tangy horseradish sauce and a housemade potato chip- nice crunch.

This American Bistro in this upcoming section of ATL has become a “go-to” destination eatery. It has a bit of everything one wants in a restaurant in today’s market. Perfect to get with friends or to escape on that long overdue date night. The Shed is waiting for you again and again.

East Altanta Neighborhood Gem

Last night my boyfriend and I experienced our first dinner at The Shed and it was absolutely refreshing. The service was top notch!! Chris, our server, was full of personality and made great recommendations.

We started with a small plate of braised rabbit which I wasn't too fond of in thought, but it was flavorful and the biscuit melted in my mouth. If you go there you must try the Blueberry Margarita which is a great alternative to the traditional Latin beverage. It was Wednesday night so we bit the bait and tried the $3 sliders....they were excellent. We had the scallop, mozzarella w/ basil pesto, and pork sliders...all were delicious.

This has definitely been added to our weekly rotation....great job last night Chris and Lance. Monica and Mel were pleased!

Great space and better food

I've only been to The Shed once, but everything about the visit left both my wife and me intent on coming back. First off, I never take a nice restaurant having its own free non-valet parking for granted, so I want to make sure and mention my appreciation of The Shed's convenient self-parking. Once you get inside, the decor is cozy and the seating is not overly crowded - also something I never take for granted these days. The menu offers something for everybody from top to bottom. The antipasto platter is a great starter. The sweet potato ravioli, while a small portion, is unbelievably good. For dessert, I recommend the homemade ding-dong. It is...well...let's just say....WAY better than a regular ding-dong!

Our go to place

Feels like fine dining, but very affordable. The food is great, the space is open and charming, with great staff. Even though my husband enjoys their great selection of wine and beer, once a while he'll can't resist their $2 PBR on draft.

Was great until my husband & I both got ill after eating t!!

We were so excited to have this place so close to our house. Most other restaurants in the area only offer bar food and it was nice to have a nicer option. We went all the time and a few weeks ago my husband and I got terribly ill. We had decided not to hold it against The Shed because things happen and we did not feel like it was thier fault. We called to let them know and warn them before other customers called w/ similar complaints.. The manager apologized and said she would sent a gift certificate which never came. I don't need a ""free meal"" but it seems since we are good customers and she promised to send it that she would do so in order to keep us as customers. Next time I want a good meal I will drive the extra mile into Inman Park....not worth being deathly ill for 48 hours.

Warm, Inviting, Charming

We were greeted by Cindy on our very first visit and sat in the dining room. The menu was new to us so we gave it the once over and decided on the whole fish for my wife and the fish and chips is what I had. My wife had a perfect martini, but I was looking for a glass of wine. Our waiter was very knowledgeable and made a suggestion. I am not a big fan of what he suggested, but to assure me he stated he would buy my glass of wine for me if I did not like it. I have to give credit it was a very good selection (can not remember what it was, but a rather earth red).
The second time we visited we sat at the bar and had an even better time. I was in the mood for some beef so I had the Steak Frite, and my wife went with one of the Prix Fix which consisted of free range chicken and butternut squash. I had tried to make butternut squash a few months earlier and could not get it quite right. I really enjoyed what the Chef had done with it, and made a comment that I would love to know how he had prepared it. Well before I knew it the bar tender had said something to him and he came over and told me to step over by the (open) kitchen. Chef then proceeded to show me how he prepared it, and stated that if I had any other cooking questions at all to just ask and he would be happy to offer some suggestions.
I would say that my wife and I are regulars up there now (try to go at least once every other week), and we have yet to have a bad experience.
I have read all the reviews of this fine restaurant, and I have to say I think some people just still don't get it. The food is good, not over done, over thought, over sauced, it is just good rustic pure taste. The one year is coming up and we will be attending and hope that their are many more to come.

Excellent all around.

The owner and staff at The Shed @ Glenwood are excellent. My husband I and used to frequent the restaurant about 1-2x/week when we lived close by. It is always comfortable, food is fresh and there is always something new on the menu. Restaurant is great for large groups. We had my son's Baptism brunch at the restaurant (group of 20) & it was fabulous! We selected our own menu that was printed specifically for us, the tables were set & 1st course was ready as soon as we entered. They are very accommodating, and the experience was great for everyone there. I also love the fact that my 1 year old, who is just starting to eat table food, can eat off of our plates, since the food is from local farms &/or organic. Also like that I can take a 1 year old to such a nice restaurant. I'm not into ""child friendly"" chains like Macaroni Grill and Olive Garden, so having a restaurant that I enjoy that welcomes children is simply great.

Eggghh...its ok....Feels like their still working out kinks

Nice new spot...needs time to develop character, but will be a challenge since its in a regentrified area and all surroundings are noveau. Food was decent, by no means stellar, oysters didn't seem so fresh, as one of the dozen was stank. Pizole was more like vegtable soup then Pizole, Charcuterie was highlight of the meal, very good and original. Bartender has background working for Atlanta corporate restaurant groups and pours glasses of wine like it....was just waiting for a jigger the way she was eyeballing the pour and nonetheless it was light still. I know their trying to get themselves to profitablity, just never like it when they try to do it be being miro-manager pours. Understand the concept of value and people come back. Will try again later perhaps, but I'd say 2.5 out of 5 stars for now

Amazing staff, wonderful food

My wife and I were so excited about our trip to ""The Shed"". This was our first time at The Shed and certainly won't be our last!! The Shed was so inviting and relaxing, beginning with the staff who were eager and professional. We were seated promptly and indroduced to our head waiter who was impressive with his knowledge about the menu. We started off with cocktails, I chose the ""Perfect Texan"", a tequila and fruit juice blend that set my socks on fire!! Man was it good! I had two of them. My wife chose wine, a cab that she claims comes close to topping her list of favorite wines. After cocktails, we chose Roasted beet salad with Goatcheese and grilled peaches. I ate half of the beets as my wife does not care for beets, but I had to fight her for the grilled peaches!!! Chef Atwood, may I please have the receipe? Our main course was the handcut NY strips for both of us and they were perfectly cooked and presented along with the truffled fries ( you have to try these) and the corn grits which were the best we have ever had and we are grit experts! Okay, we are both full, content and impressed and our waiter comes over to tell us about the desserts. We could'nt resist. We ordered the fried banana split which featured homemade ice-crream which was soooooo good, both of us enjoyed it together. At that time, I wanted to request a Walker so I could make it to my car, but my wife said no, so I had to extricate myself from the table and walk to the car on my own, only to return early the next morning for the farmers market and breakfast which was simple bacon and eggs for the two of us, but let me tell you, the bacon was smoked, crisp and abundant, and the eggs were cooked like my wife likes them which after years of practice, I still can't get it right. We will return on our next trip to Atlanta. We enjoyed the friendly, relaxing atmosphere of ""The Shed""

Great fresh from the farm ingredients

I've been there a few times and love the food and the neighborhood. It is great to have something of this quality on the ""Southside"". The tempura vegetables are to die for. They really work to make sure your experience is great.

Really Enjoyed It!

Walking in to the restaurant, we didn't know what to expect. I had heard many different things about The Shed and decided to check it out. My friend and I were greeted immediately with a smile. We were sat promptly and enjoyed every minute of our experience from start to finish. The Margaritas were great. The wine selection was really interesting. The food was delicious, but most of all the service was spot on. I noticed you could spend a little or alot. They had a burger I will go back and try next time. We shared a few of small plates and then a couple of desserts...The cookie plate is to die for. The server told us about the saturday market and brunch and invited us to some wine tasting they were having. I was really impressed. Jeans and tshirt or suit and tie. The Shed is one of my new favorite places to go!

A Little Dissapointing...

With a new restaurant opening in Glenwood Park, I was excited and hopeful. My dinner was, however, a bit like the development itself--a little dissapointing. I LOVE the concept (from farm to table), but I wanted more from the food. Aside from the amazing grits, everything was a bit bland or greasy. Our server was great--friendly if not knowledgeable, he made the experience enjoyable.

We will definitely give it a second chance...we'll see.

Wanted to love this place

If it says ""No Pretension"" in the description you can bet there will be some pretension. I really wanted to like this place and I hope it succeeds because I live within walking distance. I visited 3 times. The first was about a week after opening. I attributed the staff's mistakes, nervousness and so so food as just opened jitters. The one thing I remember having had a too strong goat cheese flavor, normally I love goat cheese but this was just too much.

The second time I was with a more attractive group of diners and I swear we were fawned over. I think our waiter gave us the exact location where our cerviche had spawned. Don't get me wrong, I love the farm to table concept, I just don't want to hear someone yammer about it for 20 minutes. I heard so much about it that I can barely remember what I had. I do remember my rootbeer float being unremarkable. It's the one thing the waiter didn't talk up so maybe it had flecks of silver and sasparilla from virgin forests?

The 3rd visit - the restaurant was finally half full and I couldn't hear myself think. All around me I heard...""What?"" ""Huh?"" ""This one is pretty good"" ""No, I don't eat cerviche...I said I don't eat RAW FISH"" My friends and I resigned ourselves to a conversation free meal. Luckily you could hear the staff waxing poetic to their other tables about the pedigreed food. Please stick some pillows or something in the ceiling. It's just too loud. The timing with the kitchen still hasn't been fixed. 45 minutes is too long to wait for an entree. We could have been in and out in 45 minutes but instead we sat for 2 hours. The ribs were pretty good though.

I will give this place another chance. I'd like something like this to survive in the neighborhood. I'll wait 'til the weather cools off. Maybe by then the staff will be less overzealous with flowery (and yes pretentious) menu descriptions.

Casual Atmosphere, Seriously Fine Food, Great Prices

There was certainly a buzz around the neighborhood when we learned that Cindy Shera, most recently of Twist, was going to open a restaurant called The Shed at Glenwood. Inquisitive (read nosey) neighbors that we are, the streets were humming with conjecture about the style of the restaurant, the food that would be served and the way it would be run. I began to feel a sinking in my heart because I thought The Shed at Glenwood would become a dining experience that we could afford only on special occaisions. This was especially true when the decor started to come in, which everyone was describing (from looking through windows) as elegantly restrained.

I was completely surprised when we went to eat there for the first time and every time since, because the atmosphere is relaxed to such a point that I?d feel comfortable in flip flops, or a suit, but the food is definitely upscale without being fussy. Chef Daniel Atwood, recently of Prime, manages to put together an ever changing menu of high quality, farm to table food using time and labor consuming techniques that are usually reserved for the starred places, or a French matriarch?s kitchen. His braised pork shank simply melts away from the bone and has subtle flavors that tease the palate into guessing what they are, but comfort in their familiar depth. Likewise, he brings us seafood so fresh I keep looking for a tank in the dining room. I particularly love the whole fish, which changes according to the chef?s whim, and is roasted over their wood burning grill. The steaks are cut to order, and we always delight in the ever changing ceviche that puts the flavor of the seafood forward and not the marinade.

What I don?t understand is how they can do this and keep most of the entree prices in the teens and low twenties. Not far off from the place down the street thas uses frozen fries.

Go to the Shed to enjoy top quality food, proessional service, and great food without pretension or high expense.

Has it's good points

The decor is minimal and a little sparse. Gives off the impression of casual dining but the menu is more upscale. The oysters and potato gratin were delicious but the fondue appetizer was average and the scallops were too salty to really enjoy as they were perfectly cooked. The waiter and the bartender were very attentive and helpful. The bar looked like it would be a good place to relax for a drink. Maybe I would go back because I do love Glenwood Park and it is great that they have another restaurant in that area. Although Vickery's would be my first choice in comparison.

Great food and service in a fabulous neighbourhood

My wife and I have eaten at The Shed on several occasions and have enjoyed it throughly each time. From the pork shank to the whole fish, each dish has been cooked to perfection and served by a very friendly wait staff. This side of I-20 historically has had awful restaurant choices until now. Even though Glenwood Park has been slow to fill their retail the choices they have made are far better than any other retail area close by.
Over time Glenwood Park retail will definently be a destination just like Virginia Highlands,Little Five Points etc...

Good...could be great.

First off; kudos to The Shed for being one of the very few (and I mean 2 or 3) retail businesses trying to make something happen over at Glenwood Park. Seeing as much of the retail space is still available well over a year after it's construction, The Shed should be commended for their pioneering spirit. It's a shame the developer didn't have a clue in how to entice more businesses to set up shop in what could potentially be a really cool part of town. I digress. The space is cool; simple but sophisticated (sans the pre-requisite flat screen TVs in the bar). The menu is great, I imagine, for meat-eaters; vegetarians get to flip a coin for their bill of fare. The food is above average and their wine/beer selection is commendable. It was a Friday night and the restaurant was full, but not packed by any means. With about 70% of the tables seated the service was oddly slow. Main entrees arrived roughly 35-45 minutes after ordering them. All in all we'll give it another go, but organization in the kitchen is seemingly needed.

Great addition to the neighborhood

This new restaurant captures the neighborhood perfectly, relaxing atmosphere with clean, well made food. We started at the bar for some refreshing cocktails and good conversation with the bartender, Roberto. They have a daily libation, a drink special that seems to fit the season and the mood, a gazpacho martini was the creation for the day. Not being huge gazpacho fans we opted for our drink of choice, scotch on the rocks. We moved to a table to get down to the business of dinner. The Shed has a full raw bar, complete with oyster choice from the East and West Coasts and a daily cerviche special. I choose the scallops cerviche and the husband had the panzenella salad. The cerviche was well prepared, being the citrus freak that I am I added a little more lime juice for more kick. The salad was fresh and delicious. The wine list was a little lacking, it seemed somewhat predictable and common. I imagine that it will evolve as the restaurant evolves. As for the entrees, the husband tried the Kobe-style beef burger with the truffled fries and I had the lobster ravioli with squid ink in the pasta. I really liked the pasta; the portion was rather large made it made good lunch leftovers. The husband liked the burger but thought the fries were slightly under cooked, but the truffled salt made up for the underdoness. We were quite full by the end of dinner so we skipped dessert, even though they sounded delicious. I am looking forward to watching The Shed grow and welcome it to the neighborhood.
