Had dinner last night. Part of Dine Around program. Was struck with difference in menu from other Buckhead Life group. Little more casual which I like. In talking with server, she especially liked the pastrami sandwich which I decided to order. Glad I did. It was very good and very filling. Wife had trout which also was very good. Friend... More

We stopped here briefly for takeout one evening in Buckhead. Part of the parking is valet for $2.00 and the other part is self park but not very many spaces. We came in and were told it would be a 15 minute wait. When I explained that all we wanted was a dessert for take out they directed us to... More

We went to the diner for their famous southern fried chicken on a Wednesday night. The fryer was taking a while to heat up so the manager offered us a free appetizer which we declined. Then the waitress came by with these delicious looking deviled eggs, again declined. The chicken came 30 minutes later and was perfect!! The crust was... More

Saw a lot of critical reviews, but we were impressed. Certainly not a diner. Place was mobbed. Reservations a must and you might still have to wait, but the bar is long and well tended whether your drinking iced tea or Long Island iced tea! Menu influenced by traditional diner offerings-I had the meatloaf for about $18. Service was good.... More

It was fun. We made our own experience the last time we were there by teaching the chef to make hot fudge ( my date's recipe). They were great sports and the whole kitchen staff were treated to hot fudge sundaes. Otherwise the food is acceptable and the prices are high for what it is.

We had a party of 4 adults. The food was excellent but a bit overpriced. I especially liked the grilled asparagus and it was pretty easy to duplicate at home

My husband and I returned to the Buckhead Diner after several years and were disappointed. The server was very nice except many of the old time favorites were no longer available. The selections they did have were not impressive.

Our family ate dinner at the Buckhead Diner while visiting the area over the Labor Day weekend. We eat there every time we come to the area. For us, it's a must visit. We love to start out with their homemade potato chips covered in hot, melty blue cheese! Service is always fantastic and the atmosphere is quiet. You must... More

The Buckhead Diner was recommended to us by several people. The server recommended the hamburger. It was unique in that I had never had a hamburger with an egg on it. It was okay but not great. My wife had a salad that was also okay. The ambience is actually better than the food. For food quality and price I... More
