Sad to see what was such a wonderful restaurant in such decline. I have been visiting this Buckhead/Atlanta staple for years. Be it my wife and I's first date, the night I proposed, anniversaries, the night before our son was born or when friends and family come in town. The last time we went in was right before our son...

The food was good, but the waiter was irritating. I got the imression he was doing his best to impersonate Flo from the Mel's Diner TV sitcom from years back. It had been a long day... and I just wanted a nice meal with good service. Had this been a low level "hash joint", maybe the waiter's actions might have... More

Everything was satisfactory with staff. Entrees arrived and husband's food was quite delicious. Problem was with my meal. As i began to eat, I found that my chicken was raw in places and I... More

Every time I have been to the diner I have had a wonderful dining experience. I always go at lunch and rarely have had to wait if I go during the week. If I have to wait it is not long. I have found the food consistently good and only once did the waiter misunderstand my son's order. The food... More

This being in its location, it's restaurant group and quality, you expect the price to be high. However, some other places around and other bulkhead group restaurants are cheaper. That said, there are some fantastic dishes here and it's worth it just for the atmosphere.

Came here for dinner with friends as it's an Atlanta institution. First thing to hit was the smell of cleaning fluid and the. Sitting at the bar, waiting for a table, the air con vent is dripping down on us. Extensive menu, we went for veal meatloaf, fish & chips and the special, soft shell crab roll. We started off...

Mid week, dinner time and place was packed. The tables are very close to each other and by that it's a lot of noise. The wait staff very helpful and fast and the food delivery time was good consider the rush hour time. The food is very good and looks fresh, to bad for the hamburger bun that wasn't good... More

The Buckhead Diner is one of my top favorite restaurants in Atlanta. This trip was with 2 people who had never been and we all had a great experience. Seating was prompt, service was impeccable, and food was delish. I had a crab cake appetizer and a roasted beet salad. Everyone at the table enjoyed their choices.
