Good value and friendly, prompt, and very attentive service!

My sister and I walked into the diner expecting it to be, well, a diner. Nestled between concrete buildings, fancy shmancy eateries with valet service, and just a stone's throw from our hotel, it seemed the affordable option on the strip. Upon entering, we were pleasantly surprised to be greeted... read more

Rarely do we find excellent unique restaurants that we can only find good things to say about our experience. Buckhead Diner looks like a fancy diner architecturally, but it's a white table cloth kind of fare with white jacketed waiters. The steaks and seafood choices are excellent and all the food was tasty. The waiters we're professional and attentive and... More

We had a really nice server and the ambience was much nicer than what my friends and I expected. The side of salad was really great and the dressing was amazing but the rest of the food was underwhelming . I also got steamed broccoli and whipped sweet potatoes which were good. This is what my friends and I got.... More

We arrived in the Buckhead area in Atlanta last Saturday for a few days and we were looking for a place to have dinner. A friend who lives in the area recommended the Buckhead Diner. She did mention that it was not your typical diner but a very elegant place. We were there for dinner and we had a memorable... More

We went here today for a late lunch, early dinner. Food was wonderful and our waiter Brian was extraordinary. His recommendations were spot on. We enjoyed a wonderful meal and he made us laugh on several occasions. I would highly recommend this restaurant. This is not your average diner, it is defiantly more upscale. I enjoyed a crab cake and... More

I went here expecting a diner, the food is average at best, nothing special. The server we had was very nice but all in all a disappointment. The food is very overpriced.I was really fooled thinking it was a diner. I would never go back.

My husband ordered a fillet for full price but it was cut in half. Do not got to this restaurant if you are looking for... More

Try anything on the menu - you'll love it. And the service is great - Brian is a local legend to regulars...he should charge admission he's so hilarious!
