After stopping here for dessert on my last visit my husband and I decided to try it for a late lunch. Again one side is valet parking and the other self parking. We were able to get in without a problem and had no wait for a table. The place is very upscale and the prices reflect that. I had... read more

I haven't been here in a while but I enjoyed it as much as I did a few years back. The Diner has been around about 30 years. The treat, if you don't mind the fat, is the heaping mounds of freshly made potato chips that is drizzled with melted blue cheese. To die for. I had their tuna nicoise... More

For we northerners a diner is normally a not so fancy in and out fast place to eat with a menu listing ata least a couplle thousand items and a cake cooler at the entrance.....the Buckhead Diner is by no means part of that mold. In fact, it is one of the finest restaurants i Atlanta and has been for... More

Ate dinner here with several colleagues. Not your typical diner - very sleek and shiny. Very professional and courteous waitstaff. Menu has a wide variety of items. Had a very nicely done pork chop. Will not disappoint.

We were looking for a place for later dinner and the man at the hotel front desk told us..."why don't you try Buckhead Diner..?". The place was really nice with a 60's atmosphere.....with a 2015 excellent service. Food was pretty good even if I still think that 15.50$ for a "vegetable platter" was way too pricy !! If you decide... More

Tried this restaurant based on reviews of other diners. I agree that the food was very good here and I knew it was an "upscale diner" but the service and noise level were really not suitable for a dinner out at any type of restaurant. My "priority seating" reservation was obviously worth nothing as we waited about 30 minutes until... More

Read reviews for this place prior to arriving and had put it on the list for definite eats. Our hotel was actually right across from it and from the outside I just wasn’t feeling it. I wanted to go somewhere else but we went through the reviews again and decided since you judge a book by its cover, we gave... More

We have dinned here for many years. This upscale dinner serve great comfort food with a southern touch. Service is always perfect and fried chicken and the meatloaf is winners. Always make reservations to make sure your party gets a table at this classic Buckhead restaurant.

A great combination of comfort food, an extensive menu, and Southern hospitality go a long way to make the patrons feel welcomed and satisfied. Fried chicken is only served a few time a week. Worth calling to find out exactly when. Burgers are well conceived combining ground beef, brisket, and short ribs. Add your favorite cheese and dig in! Sometimes... More

The best part about the Buckhead Diner were the appetizers we ordered. We had the truffle deviled ham & eggs and the calamari. It was as delicious as it was beautifully presented. Desert was also amazing. We had their signature banana cream pie. It was so very good! I had the ham & fontina grilled cheese. It would have been... More
