Upscale diner

Great service and classic 50's diner venue. Diverse menu and not as you'd expect for a diner with no conventional burgers and fries available! Prices a little higher than expected. If there was such a thing as a 'fine dining' 50's diner this would be it! Great staff and enjoyed the visit

This is no ordinary diner as a Jersey girl knows diners. The food here was delicious and the service was five star quality. I was very impressed with their brunch menu and look forward to returning to try dinner.

Visited on a very rain soaked Friday night - lots of people in the waiting area but not enough seating for those who were waiting - a good sign we though Took an additional 20 minutes after meal booking time to be shown to our seats. The food was good but nothing really stood out but the cocktails on the... More

We ate here on a Friday evening. It was packed but we had reservations (or call ahead seating). It was two adults and one child. My niece enjoyed the steak from the kids menu, and we enjoyed the Kobe Beef Hotdog. It was the first I heard of a Kobe Hotdog, but enjoyed it.

The diner offers variety of local food and the service is really good and friendly. We had the pork chops as recommended by our waiter and it was really good. There is plenty of free parking just outside the diner.

Great atmosphere. Great service . . . . . . though we did wait a half hour for our reservation. And the food is always wonderful.

The Buckhead Diner is always excellent. I've eaten there when in Atlanta a number of times. The ambience is lovely, and the specials are quite special. The meatloaf is a feeling of heaven. So are the steaks. You cannot go wrong choosing the Buckhead. Many years ago, one of their chefs came to Greenville, SC. It was sensaitional.

While this has Diner in its name it is rather "fancy". I know we were little underdressed (tshirts and shorts) they treated us very nice. Food was wonderful. Very nice place

We stop here almost every time we're in Atlanta, most recently as we were driving through and felt like a relaxed lunch. My husband had the "blue plate special," a very tasty hanger steak sandwich, and I had an entree-sized salad with thin slices of chicken breast, grilled but still very moist and flavorful, and a lovely mix of beautiful...
