Tucked away in Peachtree Hills, Treehouse Restaurant and Pub has long been my go-to spot for Sunday brunch. The eggs benedict are delish and the mimosas rid me of any hangover symptoms. But lately I’ve been pleasantly surprised to find that Treehouse is no one-trick pony. The dinner menu is also sure to please.
After a work happy hour recently, the B.F. and I were in search of some place casual but tasty to grab a bite to eat. Having been a longtime fan of their crab and artichoke dips, I suggested this cozy spot.
The bar area was crowded for a Wednesday, though it wouldn’t take much to fill the space (it’s about the size of my bathroom.) We sat downstairs in a spacious booth, next to the fireplace. It was a bit noisy with the combination of the heavy rain and Treehouse’s tin roof, but that’s all part of the atmosphere.
We started the meal with the crab dip—warm and meaty and served with tortilla chips. For dinner I was torn between the salmon entrée and the creamy Treehouse pasta. In the end the comfort food won, and the Treehouse pasta didn’t disappoint.
Drenched in a tomato cream sauce, this penne pasta with spicy grilled chicken is the ultimate dish for a rainy, cold night. I added a side of their hand-cut fries to share with the B.F. and left with my belly full and leftovers for lunch the next day.
The B.F. settled on the jerk chicken breast, served with black beans and rice and fried plantains. The chicken was juicy and tender, with a fair amount of jerk rub. I’m not a huge fan of jerk seasoning but even I had a few bites of this dish. His portion was huge as well, leaving him with lunch for the following day too.
For those not in the mood for an entree, the burgers at Treehouse are some of Atlanta’s best, and their California chicken sandwich, served with guacamole and jalapenos, should not be missed.
Prices at Treehouse are reasonable, ranging from around $7 for appetizers to around $15 for entrees. Desserts are all under $5 and the flourless chocolate cake is worth a trip alone.
Serving a variety of salads, sandwiches, entrees and even pizzas, Treehouse makes for an ideal date night, as the expansive menu is sure to have something to please even the most finicky of diners. Treehouse also has a decent selection of wine and beers, plus a full bar. In the spring and summer the patio is the ultimate spot to sit back and enjoy the weather, and they even let you bring your pooch.
Treehouse maintains a neighborhood bar/restaurant feel despite it’s location less than a mile from busy Peachtree Street and is the ultimate casual, come-as-you-are dinner spot.
Treehouse is located at 7 Kings Circle Atlanta, GA 30305
Treehouse is open daily for lunch and dinner and features brunch on Saturday and Sunday from 11 am to 3 pm.
