Justin's had a good run. I use to go to happy hour on Mondays, special events, etc. I actually only really sat down for a real dinner a couple times. haha Like someone mentioned, it probably couldn't compete with Frank Ski's. Out with the old, in with the new is the Atlanta way!

I think if folks see some of the reviews it looks like Justin's failed to perform on all levels from everyone of all races and backgrounds.

Overall, was not a very well ran establishment.

See some of the reviews:

Justin's - Atlanta, GA

Restaurants are chance businesses like all, they have a very high failure rate. You either hit a niche as a "very good" "very well ran" family individually owned restaurant or go out of business. With all the chains out there it is David vs., Goliath and it does not matter if your P Diddy or P Dribble.

If we make money it's illegal or we have a chip on our shoulder or we are new money. If we don't have money we're lazy, bringing down vlaue, etc....


Anyway Justin's menu was not all that, and DEFINETLY overpriced. I think they closed b/c no one went there anymore.
Spot on post.

No, but I was greeted with "Oh, I didn't know it was a snowflake party tonight.". We chose to spend our money elsewhere. People of all races tend to deny racism exists within their group. There is plenty of white on black racism, but the the black on white is rampant in this town. The difference is that one is politically incorrect and the other is not.

Apparently rude service, bad food, over pricing was something that most people regardless of color experienced there according to these reviews. Justin's Restaurant Inc - Atlanta, GA, 30309 - Citysearch

Did the host/hostess literally say that or was that the demeanor that they presented?
