This diner is a lovely place, sort of Art Deco and railroad diner car combined. The service is excellent and attentive. The food was unusual for a diner, more high end with prices to match. We ordered omelets, fried eggs and bacon, and eggs Benedict with heirloom tomatoes. All the food was well prepared and beautifully presented. Small complaints; English... More

Dined here several times. The food and service quality are at a high level compared to a "diner" in the north. It is a bit pricey for the food but not for the service level. We like it for lunch but there are more upscale places close by for dinner.

Went with friends to celebrate a birthday. Fortunately it was not a busy evening. They do not take reservations but phone ahead seating. We were seated almost immediately. I ordered a vodka drink which was tasty but very small. We ordered dinner after being told the specials by an attentive and informative server. The meals were delivered in a timely... More

We intended to have our anniversary dinner here and booked through Open Table. We know that Buckhead Diner doesn't take reservations - but this system gives you priority on the wait list. When checking in, we were told 20 minutes. After an hour and change, we were told we were 5th in line, and another 40 minutes. When we mentioned... More

Nice retro looking place. Classic diner menu. I had their excellent veal and mushroom meatloaf for $18.95. My son had the C.B.S. Burger at $14.00 plus $2.00 for the tasty fries. He also enjoyed the chocolate milkshake for $5.50. Total with tax before tip was $43.69. Staff are super attentive and friendly and come dressed in spiffy white classic diner... More

When you think of a diner, The Buckhead Diner is probably not what typically comes to mind. There is an upscale charm to this restaurant that starts at the hostess stand, where they ask for your name and address you personally throughout your dining experience. The menu features a wide variety of American cuisine, some of which is diner-inspired. There... More

The worst food I have ever had!!! I don't recommend to anyone! The service is very bad too! What makes you mad the most is the fact that you didn't enjoy the food and then your check is $$$$$$$

I wasn't greeted right away at the host stand so I took a seat at the bar and wasn't greeted there for 10 mins. But the Executive Chef came out, greeted me, took my order .... and MADE my night! The food was fabulous and I felt like a queen ... thank you.

This place is a diner, but they TRY to be upscale. The wait staff wears white shirts and ties, and the restaurant makes an attempt to be a fancy restaurant, but they just don't carry it off. Fancy diner is an oxymoron...in this case. Food was average, but the service was quite good. The place was a bit shabby as... More
