Lobster Fried Rice

OMG!!!!! My lobster fried rice was so good until I ordered one to take home for later. The fried lobster tail was tender, juicy and mouth watering. The host checked our temperatures, hand sanitizer at the door, and the tables were spaced out for social distancing. Trying to find time on my calendar for another visit. I will try the lamb chops.

Suspension Cake

This is a very delicious light red velvet and cheese cake combo that melts in your mouth without the greasy after taste that most cakes leave on the tongue. Very well made dessert! Make a perfect finish to the meal. Everyone has got to try his.

Seafood Curry

Order this dish for my birthday to go. Due to the corona pandemic I was feeling a little blue, but this delicious and healthy Seafood Curry dish brightened my spirits and taste buds. Absolutely delicious, it was like 5 star dining at home. All I can say is WOW!!!

Lobster Wontons

Which dish haven't I tried is more of the question! I love this menu. Each dish has an incredible flavor profile that I haven't been able to find anywhere else. My top choices are the lobster wontons, crab fries, sweet and sour ribs, fried chicken, and toasted pound cake. And the staff is sooooo amazing! If you haven't been you're missing out!

Deviled Eggs

Easily my new favorite must-order each visit item on the menu. The beef is tender, the egg is perfect and the sauce on top sets it off. I could order 3 of these as my entree and be happy.

Lobster Macaroni & Cheese

I tried Poor Calvin's for the first time with my girlfriend back in February for our first date. Also this was my first time trying mussels which I highly recommend Poor Calvin's if you're looking to try some! Their Lobster Mac and Cheese is *Chef's Kiss*! The Lobster fried rice is bomb too! It has a little kick to it that makes it the perfect flavor. Also the seafood spring rolls are a must order each time!! Make sure you get the sauce! Needless to say i've been back multiple times since my first date.

Lobster Fried Rice

Let me start by saying the curbside service is second to none during these challenging times. James was amazing with curbside recommendations, service and a 'to go' delivery to my back car seat consistent with the great experiences I've enjoyed while dining at Poor Calvin's. The chef's Lobster Fried Rice remains extremely flavorful. The lobster tempura travels well. After arriving in Peachtree City, I opened my containers and the lobster was still crispy. The Sweet and Sour baby back ribs were amazing. My Peach Cobbler Empanada was delicious as James promised. Even after the commute and dinner it remained a crispy pastry and I had all kinds of wonderful extras to top it off. Bravo team Poor Calvin's!!!

Lobster Fried Rice

My boyfriend and I came across Poor Calvin's about three years ago and it is by far my favorite restaurant in Atlanta. I go there for all special occasions, the entire experience is incredible. The service is some of the best I have ever experienced and is always consistent. Not to mention the food! The Lobster Fried rice is my go-to, but you have to get an appetizer. The menu rotates seasonally I believe, and Calvin does not disappoint! A super eclectic restaurant with a unique ambiance that you will not be able to stop thinking about.

Crispy Fish Curry

The fish had a perfect, light and fluffy (not greasy) crust. It is light and flaky on the inside. Then when it's topped with the flavorful curry it is out of this world! Creamy, sweet and a little spice. Try it!

Seafood Curry

Curries are one of my fav dishes and I get them all of the time. The seafood curry was so savory and sweet at the same time. I don't know what they do differently in the preparation, but this was outstanding! Every bite had maybe four different kinds of seafood in it. It was so incredible!

TOM YUM SOUP

Calvin's takes 1st prize. No? Start off with his version of Tom Yum soup, loaded with squid & shrimp & an original spice blend that will turn your head. Unlike any Tom Yum you've had before

TOASTED PANDANG POUND CAKE

The most amazing dessert I have ever had. I mean that truthfully. The pound cake is nice and warm with great seasonal fruit on top. The ice cream on top kind of melts into the toasted pound cake as your eating it, making the experience so much better in your mouth. This is literally why I continue to come to Poor Calvins, besides their great service and drinks.

Lobster Wontons

These wontons combine the most devine crunch of a wonton with the most delectable lobster filling and the most scrumptious sauce to tie it all together. It is absolute perfection and my husband and I are obsessed!

Lobster Fried Rice

We have been fans of Poor Calvins for years; all the way back to dining before the liquor license was obtained. The Lobster Fried Rice is a classic, a staple, a must have for your first visit, or your 10th visit. The service, the culinary skills , the bar service never ceases to amaze me. When asked by visitors to Atlanta what restaurants are a must try, PC is in our Top 5!!

Prik Kingh Smoked Duck and Shrimp

The smoked duck breast is unlike anything I've ever eaten before. I'm talking the CRUNCHIEST skin, SUCCULENT meat that cuts like butter, the perfect ratio of JUICEY fat, and a beautiful SMOKEY bacon-like flavor that perfectly compliments the bed of SWEET pineapples, cashews, and FRESH vegetables that the bird is delicately laid upon. This yumminess is dressed with a DELICIOUS coconut curry sauce that makes me want to lick my plate clean. All I can say is - YUM!
