Had a great experience on New Years Eve. The atmosphere was festive, service was awesome. We had a great meal. Received an appetizer, complements of the kitchen which was super tasty (Fried Calamari). I would go back.

As a long, long time patron of the Buckhead Life family of restaurants, and the Buckhead Diner particularly, I was saddened this evening by mediocre service, average quality food and a feeling of generally uninspired dining. So disappointed.

Food was amazing. Blue cheese nachos , calamari, Mahi-mahi. Coffee cake with cinnamon ice cream. Our waiter Ryan was a hoot. Knowledgeable of the menu, FUNNY! Ask for him when you visit. I got some great one liners from him. This place is going to be in my list every time I visit Atlanta.

This was our first time visiting the Buckhead Diner. We were greeted and sat promptly. We had the calamari as our appetizer. My wife had the Coffee Rubbed pork and I had the Chef's Special which was pork tenderloin over sautéed spinach. The appetizer and entrees were outstanding. Afterwards we enjoyed the famous white chocolate banana cream pie with coffee.... More

First let me say that the wait staff was very good. My first impression though was the dirty white jackets of the staff. I was at this restaurant 10 years ago and it was phenomenal. Food, cleanliness, everything about it was good. This time the food was sub-par. Nothing great about it. I had the burger and it was just... More

This was my first visit to the diner. When I pulled up I loved that they offered valet services. They're was a wait time of a bout 5 minutes which was perfectly fine and I expected it because it was New Years Day. I ordered the opened face Salmon BLT and it was delicious! My friend ordered the Grilled Cheese... More

I only enjoyed 50% of my dish. The service was also slow/mediocre. Out of the 4 people in our party no one was really impressed and doubt we would come back here

Nice place to eat. Cool vibe. Looks like you're dining in an old rail car. Staff is attentive. They bring lovely breadsticks and mini jalapeño corn muffins to the table. We've had the blue cheese kettle chips before, and they are decadent! You can order a half size order, but they only deduct about $2 from the full price. My... More
