What went wrong: they messed up our registration and split our party of 18 across two tables and we had to wait for them to fix it. What went right: the fried green tomatoes were the best I ever had. The portions were huge and the atmosphere was great.

While we were vacationing in Newport, we needed a place to eat... We read the reviews on many places to eat... Most the reviews on this place sounded mixed but we decided to try it anyways... I am more careful where we eat because of our 1 year old son. I don't want to go to fancy as not to... More

We came here for dinner because we had a Comfort Suites discount. They weren't crowded at all and we were seated immediately. Our waitress was friendly and attentive. We were seated next to a river view window which was nice. The food however was just average. Don't get me wrong, it wasn't horrible but I expected a little better.

We decided to have dinner on the river, so we thought we would try Buckhead. We placed our name for a table when we arrived, and they gave us a buzzer. We sat at the outdoor bar in the mean time. The bartenders were very nice!! After 45 minutes our bar tender said he was going to go see why... More

Food is very good and the location is excellent right on the banks of the Ohio River. Great bar area and the service was fantastic.

I came here for lunch since I got $2 off with my Comfort Suites key. I got the chicken fingers with mac and cheese and mashed potatoes. The chicken was good but the sides were just average. I really enjoyed the bread with cinnamon butter. My waitress was really nice and my food came out fast. I would go back... More

With a deck on the river it is the perfect place to be on a sunny day. That is it. The food was disappointing. We all had different dishes and they were either bad or underwhelming. I had the portabello sandwich and the mushroom itself was fine but the bun was so stale and toasted with pizza sauce on top;... More

Went here for dinner one night while on a getaway with my husband. Food was good and not overly priced. We sat outside on the deck to eat. The deck overlooks the river and has very pretty views. Would recommend and would go again

I've been to Buckhead numerous times and I've NEVER had a bad experience. I've been part of an intimate party, a work party, my WEDDING SHOWER was at Buckhead and they have never failed to impress me.

Ate here on a Sunday night. Was seated immediately, served promptly. There's a great view across the Ohio River of Downtown Cincinnati. Extensive beer selection. My wife had the grilled whitefish, cooked and seasoned very nicely. I had the sirloin steak, which was reasonably priced ($15.99) and sufficiently seasoned. Yes, we'd consider coming back here the next time we're in... More
