We recently had the opportunity to try Buckhead's with friends. The steaks were good, perfectly cooked, but overall the food was just good. It wasn't quite what I was expecting from the reviews. The staff was extremely helpful and polite, service was outstanding. The atmosphere inside the restaurant is nice as well, it's dimly lit and what one may expect... More

I'm a picky steak lover because I often can cook a better slab of beef than even Ruth Chris'. Believe me when I say to you that this steak was one of the best I've ever had. The potato cake, veggies and side salad were fabulous too! What a great Richmond spot.

We went here for our anniversary and were very impressed. It sits in an old strip mall with an A C Moore craft store next door, so that was very underwhelming. One you enter Buckhead's you forget about the outside. Inside is white table cloths, soft lighting, music playing so gently you can have a private conversation easily. The staff... More

We were pleasantly surprised by our meal at Buckhead restaurant. It is located in a small strip mall. Once you are inside, the setting is warm and inviting. We both had steak which melted in our mouths. It was cooked to perfection. The wine list had a nice variety. The service was great. Would go back again.

I was lucky enough to visit twice in July. Each experience was equally unique but consistent. The staff is attentive, knowledgable, and eager to please. The wine list is extensive with both affordable and expensive options depending on your taste and budget. The filets are succulent, cooked perfectly every time, and are offered with several accompaniments. The Fromage is my... More

This place continues to be a hidden gem in Richmond. This was the second time I have eaten there and I will ALWAYS eat there when I go to Richmond. Great everything! Food, Wine, Drinks, Service, Atmosphere.

Really nice combination of food, service, and atmosphere. Extensive wine list. Ribeye and beef medalions/crab top quality. Bread pudding nice finish.

By far one of the finest chop houses I have ever been to. From the bar to the service to the level of food excellence there is none better in the fair City of Richmond.

Although it's often hard to get a reservation to Buckheads this is one of my favorite restaurants. I love the ambience. It's great for business or a romantic dinner. The steaks are awesome. Service is usually excellent but tonight we had to ask our waiter for a couple of thing multiple times and when all else failed we asked another... More

We have dined at Buckheads' a dozen times, or more, in the last six years. We went a few weeks ago for a treat for our teenage daughter. Our past experiences have always been good to very good. Last visit the food was, with the exception of the meat, mediocre at best. Having had very good servers in the past,... More
