For steak try The Sundial. Awesome view of the city while you're dining and the restaurant slowly rotates so the view is always different. Food is good too, $$$ but worth every penny.

Umi is fabulous. If you don't mind trying something a little weird try their omakase; the chef will pick the best/freshest varieties of the day and make them for you. Tends to be a little more authentic too.

Bars and clubs, Wrecking Bar is laid back but not a place where a lot of kids go so I like it there. If you do want a little activity or live music try The Earl or The Vortex. The Vortex also has a "dick of destiny" that if you take a shot from the shelf in front of it you get a year of good luck. Pretty cool.

I haven't been to the one in Atlanta but I'm a fan of Chops Lobster Bar in Boca Raton for steaks.

Yikes I didn't hear about that. Sad, and it looks like they haven't started it back rotating yet either.

Fox?s BBQ featured on ?diners drives & dives?
Pretty good bbq.
Ted?s Montana Grill if you?ve never had buffalo it?s really good.
West egg cafe for breakfast
Highland cafe is also really good
Intermezzo cafe for deserts/ drinks

The Georgia Aquarium is pretty awesome. If tech stuff interests you the ?behind the seas? tour is pretty cool you can see all the equipment, labs, mobile vet office etc.. my wife and I also did the penguin interaction

Stone Mountain is nice. View from the top of the mountain, Hiking trails, train ride around the mountain, ?duck boat? ride

Botanical Gardens is really nice also

If you are into sports there is also the college football hall of fame


Not sure what is up with all the question marks... stupid app changed all my quotation marks & apostrophes.
