  • "I have now been there 3 times and it does not disappoint. The food is very good for the price. The atmosphere is a lot of fun with the piano bar. The piano man is fantastic! The service is on the relaxed side but if you are not in a rush then they will take care of you! This is a great local find, a true gem!!! I can't wait to go back again..."

  • "I reserved a table and asked for a private table making them aware of my plans to propose after dinner. They did an amazing job accommodating my wishes in every regard, it went perfectly even the piano player played an Elton John song first (Her favorite artist :-). They even sat us at a huge table despite a huge waiting line soon afterwards and located us where we could hear the piano player easily who was excellent as well. My now Fiance' was so happy with everything and we will dine there every June 7th each year from now on. You cannot go wrong bringing your special peeps here to dine because the food is great and reasonable considering the quality. The scallops and grouper were excellent."

  • "Went to Adam's for Mother's Day with hubby kids (ages 19 & 22). Started out with bread served with a variety of flavored butters which we all loved. Then She Crab Soup which was out of this world! I had the scallops served over risotto and spinach - delicious! My husband and kids all got filets. They were all very pleased with their steaks as well. To top it off, we even had dessert (which is unusual for us) - We all shared so we could all have a taste - bread pudding, creme brulee and chocolate mousse were all delicious. Unfortunately, our table was by the front window and as the sun was setting, it was glaring right onto our table which made it a little warm but other than that it was a very pleasant & comfortable atmosphere.

  • "We celebrated our anniversary in a very quiet, secluded area in the restaurant. Went early to avoid the crowds. Service was awesome - (Lance) and the food was Great. They even brought us a complimentary dessert - Ice cream with Scotch :) ... Owner checked in with us and everyone was so friendly. Highly recommend for any occasion. Pricey but WELL WORTH it "

  • "We dined at Adam's for Mother's Day and it was an AWESOME experience! First, we had to change the reservation time at the last minute (just hours before) and they were VERY accommodating. Upon arrival, they sat us immediately. The waiter Matt was great - very nice and attentive. The maître d' Shaun was WONDERFUL! He came over to our table several times to check on us, and took the time to have a conversation with my elderly grandmother (including using a few German phrases - her first language). Then, proceeded to serve her a dessert of her choice "on the house". It was a GREAT dining experience, all the way around! We will return and tell friends."

  • "My first time at Adam's -- and I will go back. The atmosphere was fun and exciting. It was clean, food was amazing, service was world class. Usually when I order food at any restaurant, there are problems with requests. My chicken was exactly as I asked for it, tender and delicious. The cheesecake was homemade with pureed blueberry sauce -- divine! I will go back again and again."

  • "This restaurant is amazing in all ways, the chef gets a big Thank you from me and my wife, the food is cooked perfect, the Piano bar was fun, you can interact, bar is a great social hour. but what was truly amazing was the desert and staff. the crème Brule was probably the best thing I have ever eaten, and the staff went out of there way to make our dinning experience the most memorable. I will take ever chance to go back to this restaurant with all my family and friends in tow so they can experience the deliciousness...... "

  • "I was excited to try this restaurant after reading reviews and talking to friends. The food was great quality, the service was excellent and the ambiance was perfect! The piano man was belting out oldies but goodies and 2 hours flew right by. What a great find in Buford! Can't wait to go back soon : )"

  • "Recent Saturday night visit found Adams busy but not slammed. Bar is always great but the two barkeeps seemed rushed to service everyone and were slow on refills and bringing the check. Meal brougt perfectly cooked filet. My trout was cooked beautifullyl but sauce was soooo salty I had to scrape it off. Waiter was knoweledgeable but kept making excuses for the kitchen being overwhelmed. It did not seem that busy with several empty tables in view. Adams has so much potential to be great. Chefs and manager need to step up quality control. For the price, I expect more. "

  • "We absolutely love this place. Adam's is as good as any Buckhead restaurant without the Buckhead prices. The filet is one of the best I have eaten anywhere in the country. I hate to write such a good review because I don't want it to get too busy and lose the ability to have Adam's as a last minute choice, but for the owners they deserve a packed house because they put out a great product. The piano player also makes the place, he keeps it upbeat and lively. Definiately give the place a try and it will become your favorite too!"

  • "Drove up from Buckhead so it was around 45 minutes. Food was good and service was exceptional. They did a great job of making sure we were pleased with experience. We were!"

  • "This is truly a hidden gem, an intown class restaurant in downtown Buford. The filet is amazing, it is the only thing I order when dining there. We enjoy going in for drinks, desert and fun upbeat piano music on the weekends. It is awesome to have such a great place 10 minutes from the house."

  • "Wonderful food, especially the fried green tomatoes, flavored butter and bread and bread pudding to rival my husband's grandmother's. Their was a very talented singer/piano player on 3/7/14, but the music made it a bit difficult to have a conversation without having to raise our voices so we could hear each other. Overall, the experience was very good, but a bit pricey, which is why I would recommend Adam's for special occasions."
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "Having eaten at this restaurant many time I was not disappointed by the food or waiter service, they were fantastic as always, but I was very disappointed by the hostess at the front. I specifically requested a booth as always but was told when I arrived that it was unavailable only to look at the empty booth for the next 90 minutes while my party ate their meal at a very crowded table. She seemed more interested in talking with her friend than actually looking at the computer to see my reservation."

  • "Adam's is a gem in the heart of Buford. The food is excellent, the service is impeccable, and the bartenders are very skilled at making drinks. The Gorgonzola Crusted Filet Mignon was outstanding - cooked to perfection with a wonderful blend of flavors. If you go on Thursday, Friday or Saturday night, you'll get to experience the piano player. He's a very talented performer who knows a wide range of music and thoroughly engages the patrons. This is my new go-to restaurant."

  • "I wish the seating had have been a little less crowded. There was a table very close to our left and right and when the server came to the table to our right, it was a bit uncomfortable because his back was to us and very close."

  • "Fried green tomatoes, mushroom soup, shrimp pasta all marginal. Apple tart with ice cream good. Speak easy downstairs uneventful (may have been too early). Might return late night for piano but nothing else."
