Our server was full of energy and ideas about which dishes we might like. We got the Veggie Platter, Mahi Mahi and their signature dessert, Banana Creme Pie. The atmosphere and ambiance are most conducive to one, or many. having a great meal. Hope to see you there on our next visit.

Buckhead Diner is a very popular place to dine but not so sure why all the hype. Went to lunch with a group from work and would say the food is more on the average side with very high prices. Was disappointed with the mediocre food quality and quantity for the price.

This has been a fine restaurant. I wonder if our experience last Sunday was an outlier. We dined at brunch. The restaurant had a faint smell of cleaning solutions when we entered. We were served by a waiter who wore a shirt that needed laundering and a tie that needed to be pulled up to his collar. He wasn't the... More

This place is special. Unlike any diner you will ever go to. The food is great, the service is great and the atmosphere is great. The blue cheese chips are a must! Every Atlantan needs to go here at least once!

This restaurant might have been a diner once but it's not your "typical" diner nor are the prices. The good was good and so was the service. The trout, mash potatoes and green beans were cooked perfectly, but the portion size for the price did not equate for "a diner". My guest tried the filet mignon (yes, filet mignon at... More

Very busy at lunchtime, but we were seated within minutes. Crowded around our table. Service was excellent. Food was excellent. Prices were reasonable. Go once and you will definitely want to go again!

The combo Art Deco diner/French bistro—the floors are a sophisticated black and white marble design and waiters wear white coats—functions much as the defunct Mortimer’s did on New York’s Upper East Side: local coffee shop hangout for the neighborhood’s well heeled gentry and the occasional celebrity drop-in—rap, sports, TV, and Hollywood stars here filming a movie. Although, truth be told,... More

Great food, fun staff and a place to go when you want to celebrate or just enjoy not cooking. Checkout the meatloaf, the house made chips, and the day specials.
