Our server, Michael, was fun and he took perfect care of us! Two of us got mahi-mahi, and it was really good; the beet salad could not have been better. However, the other two in our group ordered the 'famous meatloaf', and were not impressed. It wasn't bad, just nothing special.

Of the many times I've been to the Buckhead diner this was the slowest service. The food was excellent as always. We were celebrating a friends daughter's 17th birthday. I had the mahi-mahi with tomato grits and it was perfection. My friends had the salmon, the fried chicken, the ahi tuna salad and a burger. They no longer serve the... More

Veal meatloaf need I say more? It was great. Glazed baby carrots and green beans. My water glass never had a chance to get empty. The food was great and the service even more. This is where I will be eating in Atlanta from now on.

Looks like an old fashioned diner from the outside, totally surprised by the inside. Upscale wood and chrome accents through. Waitstaff dressed more like a upscale steakhouse than a diner. Eclectic mix between local comfort foods, deli, diner and entrees. If you're lucky you get the waiter who is quite entertaining with his classic southern drawl and a unique commentary... More

It looks like a traditional diner from the outside. But the inside is upscale looking with dark wood colors and classic lighting. We had reservations and were greeted by a very friendly hostess who seated us immediately upon arrival in a booth. Our server was very friendly and attentive. My partner and I split two delicious appetizers - the Thai... More

This is a place that requires a reservation. The term diner makes it sound casual, but it's quite elegant. The food and service is pretty good.

Gleaming classic diner offering diner food with a gourmet twist. It's got a great selection of sandwiches, entrees and daily specials. It's reasonably priced with attentive service. The portions are ample, I opted for comfort food, tomato soup and a four cheese grilled cheese sandwich; it was perfect and more than I could eat. Put this place on your list... More

I get the opportunity to dine at the diner about every two or three years or so for the last 15 years give or take...and they just continue to do it right. I have never had a bad meal...and the service is always stellar and exemplary. Servers constantly fill water and tea glasses....and in passing, always seem to check in... More

The veggy plate was excellent and my wife had the halibut which was also very good. The calamari appetizer is also recommended. The waiter was a lot of fun. Very nice decor. Not the cheapest place around, but worth it.

A birthday celebration for two, my husband ordered Fish and Fries, delicately prepared, and delicious. I ordered Steak and fries, our waiter, Christopher, helped me decide this choice among three options and I was extremely glad. The steak was a 'hangar' steak, prepared, cooked to order and served with a mustard dipping sauce. The steak was full of delicate flavor,... More
