Just a little heavy handed with some ingredients

It was date night and we decided to drive into the big city this time. Love all the BLRG restaurants so we chose the Buckhead Diner since my fiance had not been there. The decor is terrific and reminds you of the old diners, down to the sugar in a dispenser, water glasses from a different era, and... read more

Ok grille in out of way Peachtree location. Good choices, but alas no fried green tomato appetizer; should be a staple in Atlanta.

We have gone here twice to use up a gift card I got from a client. Same waitress both times... the soup and sandwich was delicious and filling. The salmon salad looked great my husband had. We ordered a dessert bc we saw one walk by... the first pie. Mine looked NOTHING like the others. Ours was a broken piece... More

You cannot get a bad meal here. We had the calamari, absolutely fabulous, one of the best I've ever had, the salmon BLT was cooked to perfection and scrumptious. The cod with Asian sauce was fabulous, and we had it with the mashed potatoes instead. The trout was also great.

Whether you're looking for Sunday brunch or a casual dinner, this is a great place. The omelette of the day never disappoints, nor do the shrimp & grits. Dessert is a must, even after brunch and you can't go wrong with the banana cream pie. Everything here is good.

From the outside this looks like a classic diner - lots of curving stainless steel and neon. But it is really a conventional restaurant little wrapped in the facade of a diner. You are not a real diner if you are not open for breakfast. And if there are no classic comfort foods on the menu. And if there is... More

We last dined at the Buckhead Diner two years ago. Our return was a pleasant experience (mostly). The food was very good (crab cake entree and sauté fish sandwich). The starter rolls (corn muffins and crescents) are tasty. The atmosphere is glitzy and attractive and usually loud. Service was a trifle slow and they messed up the fish sandwich by... More

Dinned here once before and really enjoyed it. Not so much this time. Service was not good and food was just okay. Will make a better choice in the area next time.

I had fish and chips and we shared a wedge salad. Split the wedge, because I swear we each got a regular portion. If not, I don't think an average human could eat the whole thing. The food is consistently good, and if you're careful on the menu, it's one of the few buckhead life restaurants you can get out... More
