This was our second visit and every bit as good as the first one in June. Even without the piano player tonight, it was still a superb dining experience. The atmosphere is very romantic, the food was delicious, the and the service was outstanding. Erica, our server, was friendly, knowledgeable, and made oitstanding recommendations. We are passing through from another state, visiting family, and broke away from their dinner to eat here. It was so worth it.

We had made reservations for an anniversary dinner and were seated as soon as we arrived. The server was knowledgeable and the wait staff were right on top of things. We were served warm focaccia bread with an assortment of infused butters which were delicious. We ordered the lump crab cake appetizer to share and it was exceptionally good. Our entrees were the salmon and the scallops, both were tasty and filling. I cannot find any fault with the food we were served. The atmosphere was upbeat, due in part to the excellent piano player, but still relaxing. Only one negative, the hostess did not inform our server that this was a special occasion dinner and we had to tell him ourselves.

After a very poor experience at Speratas (where they didn't honor our OpenTable reservation), we had a comparatively great experience at Adams. The hostesses were welcoming, and guided us to a table immediately (they too were crowded, but found us space at the
plank'). The food - pork roast with mashed potatoes was great; the salmon with risotto a bit hot in the middle, but once cooled very good, and the atmosphere excellent. Above all else, the servers were friendly and efficient without being too bothersome, and the chef even came out to make sure the food was good. Great way to see UGA pull it out vs. Tennessee. Good discovery - we will be back!

This restaurant is so cute and as you enter you are seated in a dressy casual atmosphere. The staff is friendly and attentive. The chef has chosen so many delicious items and I chose the swordfish with mango salsa with orzo and grilled vegetables. Our table had to share some of the items because everything was so delicious. Steaks are delicious with about 4 sauces to choose, if you wish. The salmon was also delicious. As I said, the staff is most attentive but if you are fortunate enough to get James to help you, you have won the lottery. He is awesome and is very professional and efficient. We would definitely go here again. In closing, the piano bar is so awesome. You could almost visit for this by itself!

Adam's Restaurant & Piano Bar on Main Street in Buford, Georgia is an excellent upscale restaurant you would never expect to find in Old Town Buford. The atmosphere, the piano bar, even the menu are all much more than you would ever hope for. Mr. Adams always comes by to say hello and make sure everything was up to par. While waiting for your table, do not pass up the opportunity of sitting at the beautiful bar and have a before dinner cocktail. The entire evening at Adam's is a well worthwhile trip to Old Town Buford. EXCELLENT!!
