A dramatic lakeside setting invites cocktail sipping, but the food and service don't add up to dinner.

The Commons Restaurant Restaurant Review

: Adjacent to the 36-hole Stone Mountain Golf Course sits a clubhouse open to the public. While it's a good spot for a pre-dinner cocktail and maybe an appetizer (the crab cake is nice) as you watch the paddlewheel boats ply the waters of the park's lake, any thoughts of dinner should take you elsewhere. Badly in need of fresh paint plus a waitstaff that hasn't a clue about service, this restaurant charges serious prices ($20s for most main courses) yet delivers a wine list that has little to offer, especially by the glass. Stick to simple fare, such as prime rib. Entrance to Stone Mountain Park is $8 per vehicle unless you have an annual pass, which costs $35. Enjoy the park, but bring a picnic.

The service was bad but the food was good. I was with my son - we arrived for lunch at 1:30 on a Saturday. No hostess was in sight. Finally after about 5 minutes, we were led to a table where we waited for at least 5 more minutes for a waitress to take our drink order. It took at least 5-10 more minutes to get the drinks (water and coke). We placed our lunch order and waited at least 20 minutes. The waitress did not come back to check on us. Finally the food came and my son's order was completely wrong. My salad arrived but without the dressing. The waitress wisked away my son's order and we waited another 15 minutes for the correct order to arrive. At that time, the waitress brought the salad dressing. We had to ask for the catsup to go with the fries. The waitress did not come and check on us throughout the entire meal. We will not be returning.
