Popped in here after the SEC game Saturday night December 2, 2016. Michael was our server. Loved the grilled cheese and tomato soup, other entrees and Michael! Highly recommend for comfort food served classy.

Even at midnight, the white-shirted waiters and white tablecloths are waiting to welcome and take care of patrons. The espresso is strong and fragrant. The cakes defy gravity. Not huge and noisy. This diner is almost cozy. Thank you.

Just had dinner on Friday night. Fantastic! The service is so quick and so thoughtful and everything on the menu that I have had is simply delicious. Definitely get the fried calimari (sweet/hot sauce--so good!). All of our entrees were even better than they sounded on paper (which was already mouth-watering!). Finally, the wine list is amazing--not a whole lot... More

Real milkshakes, great drinks, and yummy food. Blue cheese chip appetizer is huge, and you will not leave hungry. We went on a Sunday early afternoon, and the place was packed. Valet parking, too.

Buckhead Diner is really a misnomer. The place looks like a stainless steel diner from the outside but once you walk inside you feel like you've been transported to a different age. The food and service is excellent. It's unfortunate that almost anyone believes that they can provide service in a restaurant. At the Buckhead Diner the servers are professional... More

I have always loved this place, but hadn't been in years. So happy to find they are still cranking out great food! We ordered the Maytag blue cheese potato chips, Mac and cheese tots and sweet Thai chili calamari to start. All were fantastic! We especially liked the peanuts with the calamari sauce. I ordered an old favorite, the veal... More

First, the term "diner" is a misnomer in this case. While the decor may be diner style, the food is clearly not. This is clearly not your average diner or diner food. The first clue that you are in for something different is being met with valet parking. I went here with business friends who had heard good things about... More

Visited the Buckhead Diner again after a 6-month or so lapse. Normally the restaurant is buzzing with energy, usually crowded. Not on a recent Friday night.. several empty tables, which sort of set the stage for minor disappointment. Wait staff was prompt and gave good information. Cocktails and wine very good, but entrees a little disappointing. Unusual for the calibre... More
