Great Diner

We found the Buckhead online and drove a bit out of the way to try it out on our visit to Atlanta. GREAT food! We had Mac and cheese tots for an appetizer which came with Bleu Cheese dipping sauce. My wife had the four cheese grilled cheese and I had a GREAT burger made from scratch.

We went here while in Atlanta for a dinner as a recommendation. The food was so good. We didn't have a reservation however, they asked my husband's name and when we were seated, they addressed my spouse by his name. We ordered the deviled eggs (truffle, ham and deviled egg)...oh so wonderful...I had a chocolate shake and for dinner my... More

We have been here at least once per year for the past 5 years. The staff is always great though this past visit we felt rushed and the pace of service was very random. Its a busy place and it seemed to me that they lost our reservation on record, so we waited, nearly 30 minutes past our reservation time.... More

This is a real ambiance place in a modern old diner with waiters in white jackets. The collard ham hock soup was one of the most flavorful I have ever had. The white chocolate banana cream pie was one of the best pies ever. Its great fault was its considerable size; it was impossible to stop long after one should... More

We immensely enjoyed the whole dining experience. Great relaxing atmosphere. The waiters wore white coats but not pretentious. There were patrons in cut off shorts ro dressy. My bay scallops melted in my mouth. My friend said the pecan crusted trout was the best she had ever eaten. We highly recommend it.

Wait staff has white coat and tie and are perfectly choreographed, delivering your timely meal with exceptional service. The menu is varied with unique and plentiful options. our food was great with healthy portions. My veal and... More

Went with my family and we all really like the food. Service was excellent and attentive. The only downside was the restaurant had an odd odor. It was very unpleasant!
