Vortex Bar & Grill Restaurant Review

: Funky things of all sorts crawl the walls, creating a wildly goofy atmosphere: airplanes, skeletons on motorcycles, old license plates and a big moose head for starters. At both locations, the big, fat, juicy burgers are the main act. If burgers aren't your thing, you'll find good chicken, fish and shrimp options plus generous deli sandwiches. There are suds on tap galore and by the bottle, and lots of brands of Scotch whisky. Since Atlanta's no-smoking ban requires a smoking establishment to set an age limit, both Vortex restaurants may no longer admit persons under the age of 18. Also located at 878 Peachtree St. NE, at Seventh St., Midtown, Atlanta, 404-875-1667.
