Carmy:

Depending on your headcount and budget, there are many restaurants in Atlanta with private dining spaces that you can host your rehersal dinner.

We chose to go a super casual route and had our 20-person rehearsal dinner at Mykonos Grill, a casual Greek diner. It was one of our favorite restaurants to eat and everyone loved the food.

I think you can always keep the rehearsal dinner just for wedding party and will not have to spend too much money. I will be glad to recommend some restaurants if you can advise how many guests you are thinking about having at the rehearsal dinner and your budget.

you could also just do a backyard cookout or BBQ if you have the space for it.  I know of several friends (us included, although it was at our venue) that went that route and it was a really fun, low-key night.  And economical even if you had the BBQ catered.

do Maggianos! For a rehearsal dinner it is amazing because they do family style and can offer private dining. For the price per person, it’s a great deal!

We just booked our RD @ the Midtown location of Gordon Biersch Brewery. We get the entire upstairs (including private bar, pool tables and private room for the dinner) all to ourselves until 2AM! That way guests who are not invited to the RD can join us afterward for drinks. That’s my favorite part- I was worried about seeing people for only 5 minutes on the day of the wedding.

I 2nd Maggiano’s- we just had my sister’s graduation luncheon at the Cumberland location, and it was really nice. 

They were very easygoing about reserving the entire terrace for us, my parents hosted champagne (they set it out but didn’t serve it), and we brought in floral centerpieces to personalize it a bit.

The food was laid out family-style as mentioned before, everything was delicious, and the little lemon cookies they provide as dessert were great!

(Note: Cobb County doesn’t allow BYOB, but I believe the locations in Fulton County were willing to accommodate, with a corkage fee)

As an alternative, how about Mary Mac’s Tea Room?  I love it there, it’s a nice taste of Atlanta for out-of-towners, the food is tasty, and it’s casual!

Oooh there’s an amazing moderately to mid priced restaurant in (there’s 2) Duluth and Roswell area called Sugo!  One of our faves!

Fusion of Greek and Italian and amazing!

I second Sugo…they will also do family style for private parties, and are quite economical for a group (used them for a work funtion a few months back). Their food is wonderful, make sure you have their meatballs!

Not sure where your located but we are getting married at the Vinnings Club in Vinnings.  I found this italian restaurant called Scallinis on Cobb Parkway down the street from Cumberland mall, they are also affiliated with Provinos which has other locations around the metro area.  The have a set menu of 6 – 8 items, with dessert tray, salad, garlic, rolls and non alcoholic beverage for 19.95 per person.  This includes tax and gratuity.  If you want white linens it is $20.95 per person.  I believe the food is comparable to Magginos for half the price.
