First visited the Buckhead Diner while working on "Driving Miss Daisy" on the recommendation of the producer and return every time I visit Atlanta. Took my daughter on the latest trip and we had the funniest waiter....whom had waited on me previously. The apps are great and we shared the scallops which were delicious. Try the potato chips with Maytag... More

A nice change of pace from Pano's other restaurants. Prices are reasonable and food is well prepared. Some of the dishes here, (like beet salad) outshine the same described dish at his other locations. Must be the difference in chefs. Very loud when crowded, but worth the visit.

My husband and I ate here during a recent stay in Buckhead, and this place did not disappoint! We're picky foodies, and the menu, décor and service was excellent! Very cool old style Art Deco lights and details, full bar, excellent service and the food.... wow. The blue cheese chips are truly crave-able - hot, fresh chips layered with fresh... More

I've ate at Buckhead Diner on multiple occasions, most recently for lunch. We booked a priority seating on Open Table for a Saturday but it was ultimately not needed. The inside of the diner has a classic art deco/art modern feel and the menu offers a wide variety. There were many seafood items on the many (I'm not a seafood... More

Very nice upscale diner. Not sure I can cover much other that has not already been described. I do want to mention that my wife's fitbit fell off while dinning here and they found it can gave it back to us. Very nice and thankyou. Also the adult milkshakes are always a treat.

We were in Buckhead and wanted lunch, so I thought "let's try the Buckhead Diner." My group thought we were going to a traditional diner. No, not quite. We asked the waiter for a recommendation on appetizers. He recommended two. We started with an order of the Tots stuffed with mac&cheese. Pretty good. Twenty years ago I had the other... More

I love their blue cheese chips and their fish filet sandwich. My husband had the grilled cheese and soup. I looked delicious. Next visit I will have the pastrami sandwich -- they looked amazing going by. Service was great like all Buckhead Life restaurants.

Had a nice lunch with family. The ham cheese sandwich was huge. My mom had the Cubano sandwich and it was a favorite. The milk shakes are made old style

Do not miss this place. It was fabulous !! Best burger ever & bleu cheese chips were wonderful. Not a typical diner- a bit upscale with lively Bar. Pretty good service for a big crowd.

The place was busy for a weeknight but can't figure out why. From the moment we walked in I knew there was a problem. The air smelled old and musty. Take a few more steps to the hostess stand and it smelled like day old fish. I wanted to leave but since I was the guest of honor for my... More
