Pricey for food offerings. Claims to be fine dining but food is just OK. Nice atmosphere in downtown Buford.

We ate at Adam's for the first time on Valentine's Day. With our OpenTable reservation, we walked right in and were promptly seated by the front window. It was a nice view, being able to watch the hustle and bustle of downtown Buford (lol), but we didn't see much more of the restaurant because this section is separated from the... More

Hello Bill, Thank you for your feedback! We always appreciate constructive criticism. Apologies about your Moscow Mule, if this happens again on your next visit, please ask your server to have the cocktail remade at no additional cost. Glad to hear you enjoyed yourselves and sadly you must have dined prior to 7:30 p.m., because the piano player started at... More

We enjoyed most of our food choices for dinner which included salmon and sword fish. The salmon was fresh and the sauce was very good. The sword fish also tasted fresh, but when we ordered it "blackened", we meant blackened seasoning and not burn it on all four sides making it the color black. You would think a chef in... More

This came highly recommended so we decided to celebrate my husband's birthday dinner. The staff handled the birthday terrifically. Our server Steve was a pro; attentive and informative. The salads were good as were the appetizers . The filet and the rack of lamb scored high . Unfortunately my sea bass had lots of bones and was saturated with butter... More

We visited the restaurant with a 9PM reservation for the $75 per person New Year's Eve dinner. I would like to start by complimenting the Chef and the support staff as the food was fantastic and each course was exceptional. We had to wait quite awhile at the front door with an explanation that people were not getting up from... More

Great place for a drink before a night out. The piano bar is amazing and speakeasy is a lot of fun. The food is above average but I enjoy the drinks more than the food.

Amazing food! I had the crab cakes as an entree and a side of seasonal vegetables and I was very pleased with my choice. My husband had the filet and mashed potatoes and all I can say is WOW! This says a lot considering I'm not a steak eater but the steak was absolute perfection! The piano was nice but... More

I'm a foodie and was just not impressed with Adams. We were offered dinner specials before drinks were discussed and our appetizer came out with the salad. I ordered the sea Bass and although the first few bites were delightful I could not eat the rest because of the richness. It was saturated in butter.

Hi Katie, We aim to please and delight with every bite, and we're very sorry for your recent experience. Sounds as though your server may need to be retrained on the proper greeting protocol. Your drink order should have been taken first, and your appetizer should have come separately from your salad. Thank you for your feedback. I will ensure... More

My wife and I booked Adam's Rest and Piano bar for our daughters rehearsal dinner and we highly recommend it not only for the quality of the food but for the price. Adam will work with you and your budget. The ambience is second to none from the paintings on the walls to the historic red brick walls. A class... More
