Diner Reviews
  • "Unfortunately, we were seated near the bar and the noise level was extremely high---not from patrons but from staff. Our server was so busy talking to a bartender that we had to ask another staff member to tap him on the shoulder and get his attention for us to order (and we were only 4 feet away!) The bar staff were talking in loud voices and chatting with other staff the entire time we were there. They were having a party that we weren't invited to!"

  • "Our waiter was awesome very attentive to my girlfriend who was handicapped and celebrating her Bday. She definitely felt like a princess. The desk staff came over and engaged us offering to stack the seat so my friend could better reach the table. It was the perfect eve. Thanks"

  • "It's been several years since my last visit to the Buckhead Diner, and I looked forward to taking several visiting business colleagues there for dinner. The food was mediocre, not nearly as good as I remembered. Service was very good. Noise level very high making it difficult to discuss business matters. Some of the windows need coverings as at sunset the sun shines directly into the eyes of the diners, which makes the diners look ridiculous at resorting to wearing sunglasses at table in order to converse with guests as well as to eat. Overall, not an experience I will repeat anytime soon."

  • "This was my first time dining at the famous Buckhead Diner. And the blue cheese chips lived up to their reputation. I could have just dined on the appetizer but did try an entree which was also good."

  • "We have been eating at Buckhead Diner for many years and have never left disappointed. The food is always outstanding. Fresh and well prepared. Their wait staff and management is the best. "10" is the only number that fits this wonderful dining establishment."

  • "After two past not so mentionable visits, finally a good experience w/both food & svc at the Bkhd Diner. Lindsay, bartender, on point w/svc. Friendly & accommodating. Emily, our server, was friendly & attentive & saw to any needs. The trout & bbq eggrolls were good. The kale salad was good but yet again, always over dressed (3rd time ordering). Took it home & added at least 3 cups of add'l lettuce & still the entire salad wet. Not sure why they feel the need to overdress this salad when the ingredients stand on there own. But this was a refreshing change after the past two times we've visited the Diner in the past few mos. Sad that no one contacted us from BLGR after commenting twice on bad experiences at the Diner & once at Bistro Niko."

  • "I know it's Buckhead, but a valet requirement at a diner, with a large parking lot, seemed very strange and completely unnecessary. Maybe they get really, really busy? But we had brunch on Sunday at noon, and there was more than enough room for us to park ourselves. The food was very good - absolutely no complaints there - and the service was nice and professional, but overall it was a weird vibe for me. Couldn't decide if it was casual or formal, combined a few elements of both. A drink probably would have helped, but GA can't serve mimosas before 1230 on a sunday... It's a good meal, and I'd say price points are fair, but be sure you know what you're getting yourself into."

  • "We have visited Buckhead Diner on many occasions and have always found it well worth the drive from Powder Springs. The service is wonderful. The servers are available but they don't hover. The food is exceptional. This was our anniversary dinner and we thoroughly enjoyed it. They even treated us to a piece of their terrific Banana Cream Pie and wrote "Happy Anniversary" in chocolate on the plate. Love this place!!"

  • "We have been dining at the Buckhead Diner for years and love it. On this visit I used Open Table for my reservations and arrived on time only to be told they do not like to honor OT Priority seating and it would be 45 minutes for our table. What going on? We were seated in 25 minutes."
    Dined on 8/6/2014
  • "Disappointed that a reservation is actually just "priority seating." Maybe I should start making my reservation for 30 minutes before I arrive since they don't seat you anytime near your reserved time."

  • "I was trying the diner as part of the Summer Dine-a-Round. Reservations were not available for an earlier time, but the parking lot was over half empty?... Greeting was fair by the host. Once seated it took a long time for a server to come over and even longer for our drink order to be brought back to the table. We were finally offered bread at the time our order was being taken with no saucers to use. It was unusually long for our food to arrive considering the restaurant was not busy. Our server was not very attentive and didn't follow up well. The food was delicious but service was substandard for the Buckhead Life Restaurant Group. First impression was not a good one..."

  • "my favorite of the blgroup has always been the diner...until sunday when we experiencedthe following: very ordinary food, an order coming out incomplete, reaching to serve, lack of garnish on dessert, no help leaving the restaurant with my husband in a wheelchair, service that we could have gotten at chili's ...basically, the bhd has lost is special touches...we will not return"

  • "We heard about Buckhead Diner on TV and from friends so when picking a location to cerebrate my 29th birthday we decided on Buckhead Diner. Driving up to the place my first thought was.. what the heck is this?... I was thinking of a diner but not one that actually looked like a diner... my mood instantly changed. We entered the diner and then my mood went back up and I though.. this place looks pretty cool. Definitely don't judge a book by its cover, and once we finished our dinner with a milkshake, I wanted to do it all over again. We will be back."

  • "Overall we had a wonderful evening. The one item that I would mention is that there seems to be an "odor" in the restaurant which may stem from the carpet but there was a very distinctive smell (mold/mildew) that was prevalent. Outside of that, we had a great evening! Thanks. Archie C. Wanamaker"

  • "It has been a long time since dining here and glad to return. As good as we remember. I did not get my usual Blue Plate Meatloaf, but tried the Asian salad for something new and it was great. Also the Calamari app was one of the best I've had in a long time, very tender. And ofcourse to finish with the Banana Cream Pie, as good as always."

  • "We were hoping to enjoy small celebration dinner of our recent engagement and chose Buckhead Diner because we had heard good things and reservations were available on Open Table. We didn't realize that we would still have to wait more than 30 minutes (priority seating is NOT a reservation, just a priority over walk-ins). The hostess seems stressed and annoyed (not mean, just not attentive); we sat at a table near the bar which was fairly loud and there was a faint smell of dirty dishwater. The food was good, but one of the reasons we chose the restaurant from open Table was the crem brulee chocolate chunk dessert...which is no longer on the menu :( Our overall experience was very underwhelming (not horrible, just blah)."
