Buckhead Diner - Priority Seating
Great EveningI am a nut for service and Megan was outstanding.
We got the round table I requested. I did not realize my reservation was really priority seating. My confirmation used the term reservation and priority interchangeabley and the terms are not the same.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMHappy BirthdayWe took my 17year old out for his birthday. The food was great. The staff all wished him a happy birthday. They even gave him a candle on a piece of desert. He was so happy!6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways GreatShared a wedge salad, wife had flat iron steak special, it was outstanding. I had shrimp and grits that were one of the best ever. Shared brownie sundae for dessert, could have eaten several of them. Only issue is with drinks at any Buckhead Life restaurant. They are without a doubt the weakest of any bar or restaurant in any city I have ever seen. For $9.50 you should get some alcohol. When you only have one and pay in the market range for a drink at a fine restaurant, it should be representative, but they are far from it. They work hard on their food, but the drinks are sorely lacking in value and taste. Have learned my lesson and will go with wine or beer in the future.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMDuring the TornadoWe had a wonderful dinner, comfy and cozy inside while 2 tornados came through north Atlanta.6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst time dinerThe wait staff was excellent and every member of the staff we spoke to was outstanding. The food was excellent. I got the hanger steak, and my wife got the open faced salmon sandwich. The grits that came with mine were the best I have ever had. Both excellent choices. The only thing that rubbed me the wrong way was the priority seating wait. So they don't take actual reservations but we still got sat after another couple that came in after we did. We made our "priority reservation" for 7:30 and these guys come strolling in at 7:50. Who knew that all you had to do was complain to get what you want... I understand the restaurants urge to keep their customers happy, but it didn't sit we'll with me.6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing customer service!!!Diner...this is not! It was very upscale and pricier than a regular diner. The place was packed on a Thursday evening! There is $2 valet parking and free parking across the street or on the side of building. We were eventually seated at a booth but it was terribly humid n hot, as if we were sitting outside. They moved us to another booth that was great. The waiter was ok, but slightly forgetful and not as attentive. However, the hostess and manager were amazing!!! You can tell that this restaurant cherishes each and every customer. Customer service seems to be key to Even when we stopped other waitstaff to ask for something, they were polite and on top of things.6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMDon't let the booths fool you!This is a very classy diner with great food and service to match. I don't go often, but each time I have, it never fails to deliver on taste and quality.6/10/2013 12:00:00 AMBuckhead beautyValet park your car for $2 and enjoy a decades old Buckhead staple. Beautiful interior and great service compliment the upscale diner food. The malted chocolate milkshake is heavenly if you have enough room!6/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat serviceOur party arrived early. We were seated at the corner front table. Great spot !! Our server was on the ball too. Thx Buckhead diner.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMIncredibleIncredible Food

My first visit - will definitely go back!6/3/2013 12:00:00 AMHigh-scale DIner!Our family enjoys Buckhead Diner's reliably delicious food, friendly service and fun atmosphere.

The crowd was light, but the food and service were top notch. The manager stopped by twice to see how we were doing and to thank us for choosing Buckhead Diner.5/27/2013 12:00:00 AMawesomeOur waiter was Brian, he is the best waiter I have ever had at any restaurant in any state. And my family goes out a lot. He was hilarious, quick witted, kept us laughing, and very attentive. Not only did we enjoy our food but Brian made our experience that much better. If it wasn't for him it would just be another restaurant. The food was great but the experience was topped with a cherry because of him. I recommend the restaurant and Brian.5/27/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent and classyWe will be back for sure. An oldie but an Atlanta goody! Great for any occasion.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMStill good after all these yearsWe have been eating at the Buckhead Dinner since it opened in 1987 and have never been disappointed.

WE WERE VERY PLEASED TO BE SEATED AT A ROUND TABLE OF A SIZE THAT OFFERED AMPLE ROOM AND YET WAS SUCHE THAT WE COULD CONVERSE ACROSS THE TABLE! NO QUESTION, THE BUCKHEAD DINER SHOULD BE ON EVERYONE'S LIST AS A "GO TO" PLACE.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMBuckhead Diner ALWAYS Good.We have been going here at least twice a year for 20+ years and it never disappoints. A great food menu, drink menu and wait staff. Our only complaint this time is that our blue cheese chips were barely warm..but since this is first time in 20 years that our chips were not perfect we will be back. They have old fashion diner food and drinks as well as an upscale wine list, half bottles of champagne and an upscale menu. Seriously, if you have never been, you need to go, you won't be disappointed. Lunch, Brunch or Dinner, they are all good, trust me, I have been to all of them!!

This is a must visit dining experience if you're in Atlanta. Recommended to me by a local. We almost passed on it as it looks like an old Johnny Rockets on the outside. Inside - looks like a fine dining restaurant and the food backed that up. Outstanding!! Our best meal of the week in Atlanta4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways wonderful. Great foodAlways wonderful.

All the food was amazing and the service couldn't be beat!
We were celebrating my boyfriend's birthday a day early, and told our server. He brought out a banana cream pie complete with candles and happy birthday on the plate. It was such a kind gesture! It certainly made the night. Note: do not blow out the candles hard. I was covered in powdered sugar a coconut flakes!
