On a previous visit, I had the delicious Pot pie (Chicken). I really wanted it again, but decided I was in a "beefy" mood for dinner. I had the Pot Roast this time. There is a large order, but I opted for the small order, which was ample for me. The beef is served on bread, smothered in a rich... More

Large bar and many tables with great views of the Ohio River. Outstanding service and great portions of food. Only negative is the price of craft beer. $6-$7 is quite high for a pint. But it seems more of the norm in this area.

We've been to Buckheads as a couple, with friends, with kids, and even with a large family group. If going request a window seat, it has beautiful river/city views, especially pretty at sunset! The food is good, I've liked everything I've tried. The price is average to a bit high depending on your choice. The service is average, nothing extra... More

My wife and I went to what was one of our favorite restaurants of all time to find out that the menu had completely changed. Not only did the menu change but the quality of the food seem to change along with it. The biggest example was the mashed potatoes, they are instant. (and not very good instant) My wife... More

We ordered a salad as a side with steaks. salad was good. One steak order was wrong which the waiter corrected, no problem. The big issue was the sirlion was... More

I visited Buckhead 3 days ago for a business luncheon with 2 colleagues, where we were treated to lunch by a vendor (total of 5 guests). I have lived in the area for several years, but never visited because the outside of the restaurant looks like a "special occasion" venue, and we've never had a reason to visit. So, the... More

I love the viewe across the Ohio River from Newport of downtown Cincinnati. And Buckhead has a great view. Food is OK. Nothing special. Food is maybe an Applebee's quality but not as varied a menu. Service was great.

Visited the Buckhead for lunch today. Wife loved their chicken salad, while I had a delicious bison/buffalo burger. Service was excellent. You will love the fresh rolls and honey & cinnamon butter. Their chips were a lighter choice instead of fries. Their menu selection is very large. Prices are reasonable for the value you receive. Ask for a seat with... More

I went here for the first time for my birthday dinner with family and we loved it! The food was great! We got potato skins and pretzels for appetizers and they were both amazing! My filet was very good! Tr atmosphere was very nice and the large windows facing the river make it very pretty. I will be making another... More
