Diner with cool class and great food!

This was the second time I dined at this "diner". This is a diner defined in loose terms as the inside is more like an upscale restaurant. I am originally from New York and this is quite a few grades above a typical stainless steel Greek style NY diner. Service is spot on with tablecloths and... read more

Coming from New Jersey, I admit I had low expectations of a diner, but the food was delicious and the service was great. This is a nice restaurant and most certainly not a typical diner! The grilled cheese and tomato soup was top notch. My kale salmon with grilled salmon was delicious. The salmon was perfectly grilled and very tasty.... More

Gosh, I guess I have eaten at this restaurant at least thirty times - and it is always consistently great. The food is ALWAYS superb - the service is ALWAYS superb. I wish every restaurant was this consistent. If I want a really good meal before or after a play/game/event - I know I won't be disappointed. I know I... More

We arrived late at night for a bite to eat and the staff was wonderful. The menu was a bit pricey, but it's Buckhead. However, the service and the food was wonderful!

My husband and I live in Atlanta and never stopped in to eat at this upscale diner. We have literally passed by hundreds of times. The bar staff are friendly and attentive. Great Martini. Anyway, I ordered the strip steak and my husband the veal meatloaf. My steak was overcooked, not the whole thing but half of it. I told... More

Best sandwich I've had in forever!! The bread was perfectly buttered and grilled. Both my husband and I loved this place. Good good good atmosphere. A little pricey but kinda worth it

We have visited this restaurant several times. They have a rather extensive menu, everything we have eaten thus far has been well prepared and the presentation is lovely. The service is attentive and friendly. We highly recommend this location.

In town for business, and was referred to Buckhead Diner after we struggled a bit to find a place that wasn't booked. Wanted something with a varied menu, drinks and good atmpsphere--- BINGO! So glad we went, and the food was great. Not a typical "Diner" for sure, with a great kitchen crew, very attentive servers and full bar. Would... More

The service and the food is very good. Great nostalgic diner look and feel but once inside it really is like an upscale rail car. The staff is awesome and attentive never leaving you wanting. I had the shrimp and grits on my last visit and they were delicious. The burgers are also wonderful. I've visited probably 5 or 6... More

Clearly the place to meet or be seen in Buckhead. Impressed with the service overall. When busy it's a little hard to get coffee. Which by the way is worth waiting for the coffee is fantastic. Breakfast was ok. I had the Buckhead eggs Benedict and it was enjoyable. My wife had the crispy chicken biscuit and Garvey. That was... More
