Diner Reviews
  • "Buckhead Diner has always been consistent in food, beverage and service."
    Dined on 4/14/2014
  • "Whenever I'm exhausted by the rush to hit all the newest, trendiest restaurants in town, I know I won't be disappointed at the Buckhead Diner. There's enough variety to please a lot of different palates and the food is well-prepared and nicely presented."

  • "Although not a regular reservation, but a priority seating notice, we were seated immediately upon arrival at the appointed time. The food was good, but I was most pleased with the service by the staff. The main course was not served three minutes after the salad was served, but more appropriately, the empty salad plate was removed before the main course was served. The waitress also knew correct wine etiquette for presenting the bottle. It is unfortunate many restaurants do not train the staff about how to serve wine. I never had the opportunity to pour wine, the staff kept an eye on the level in the glass. If the noise level had been lower, it would have been better, but then it was a Saturday night with a full house."

  • "Great food as always. Kale salad was awesome. Wine list could have been better. Service was not what I have come to expect from Buckhead Life Group. Waitress was not on her game."

  • "Stopped for an early dinner. Wife loved the chips with Maytag Blue Cheese, while I enjoyed the Calamari with sweet chili sauce. My wife's Asian Noodle Salad, her previous favorite, the reason we came, has changed. Apparantly, the noodle texture is different, changed the taste of the meal for her, a disappointment. My Ahi Tuna salad was great. Of course, the white chocolate banana cream pie was wonderful."

  • "Buckhead Diner continues to deliver consistent great quality food. The a iambs is energetic and the decor classic. It is warm, inviting and delish. After this visit I ask myself why it took so long to return?"

  • "Looking for a relaxed spot near the Buckhead hotels to have dinner with an out-of-town guest. Buckhead Dinner turned out to be a very good choice. They have a diverse menu -- lots of attractive choices, something for everyone. Enjoyed chips with blue cheese, good wine & beer choices, and Chicken Cobb Salad was fresh & huge. Service was friendly and attentive. Manager stopped by to check on us and greeted me by name. Valet service relieves concerns about parking in Buckhead."

  • "Food was delicious. Noise level was a little elevated for my family's liking. The service was acceptable but I was expecting more from a buckhead life group restaurant. Empty water glasses for 5-10 minutes, little things like that. But overall it was a pretty good dinner."

  • "We really enjoyed our dining experience. Bryan the waiter was great, and the food was as delicious and fresh as all of the fine dining of the Buckhead Life Restaurants. Barbara"

  • "We love Buckhead Diner. The food is wonderful, service outstanding and we always have a great experience while dining in this restaurant. First class."

  • "Priority seating is not a reservation. We waited for 20 mins past the time booked. Buckhead diner does not take reservations and claims it is clearly stated in the Open Table booking. I reread what is stated on the booking site and sure enough it says priority seating reduces the waiting time in half. A lesson learned by me."

  • "The food was excellent as always, but I did make a reservation for 7:45. We arrived and were told it would be 20 min, We were finally seated at 8:40. This caused us to miss a later event for my girlfriends birthday. The staff was very nice in their birthday wishes, but I made a reservation in order to be sure we wouldn't be late for the rest of the nights events and ultimately we were. I understand the Buckhead Diner is a very busy place, but I don't think they should take reservations if they can't honor them."

  • "The Kale Salad with grilled salmon was amazing. One of the best lunches I have had in quite some time. We all shared the blue cheese potato chips prior to lunch - sinful but delicious! I don't get to the Buckhead Diner enough - its always good and always reliable. The service was spot on. Cant go wrong here!"

  • "Went with a large group and was seated immediately despite a few missing people from the group. The server was slightly disorganized but the food was excellent."

  • "We always ask to be seated in Brian's section. He makes it so much fun. The food is excellent and all the servers are good but Brian keeps us in stitches. This place is amazingly good no matter what."

  • "Really like the food and the atmosphere, the service is always tops. I like that you can customize the meal if you do not like the side the entrée comes with, you can choose something lighter. My only gripe would be the need to do valet parking during the week. Seems overkill."
    Dined on 3/18/2014
  • "Looking at the other reviews made me to take my friend. When, I got there, it appeared to be more of an upscale diner. The tables had white tablecloths. However, my food was ok at best. I had sent my steak back because it was too rare. The Asiago potatoes were tasteless. The breadsticks were hard as rocks. My friend had crab cakes which were ok, but I've had better. The service was ok. Our server was so nervous, he knocked over my Mimosa. Then when the manager presented the check, which I paid using the Buckhead Group Giftcard, she presented the check in front of me and guest, pointing out and circling, the total bill, my remaining balance, and that I owed taxes, because the card doesn't cover that. I was appalled!"

  • "Service was fantastic. Once they realized (from opentable) that is was our anniversary, they went out of there way to give us one of the best seats in the house. Loved it!"

  • "I had always heard about The Buckhead Diner, but had never eaten there. The service was great, everyone was friendly and so nice. The food was delicious, especially the blue cheese chips!!! I can't wait to go back. Great experience!"
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "Big place, servers were very friendly and attentive. Liked the white jackets. The food was good, if a little rich. We had homemade potato chips and blue cheese. Very rich. The filet came with a potato purée. Very rich. All in all, it was interesting."

  • "We live in Alpharetta, when we have special occasions, friends in town, or we want a special evening out, we always consider going into town to the Buckhead Diner. It is our most favorite restaurant in Atlanta."
    Dined on 5/12/2013
  • "Buckhead diner is not the best place in town by any means, but it does what it sets out to do well: it is convenient, the food is good (not great), the service is efficient and friendly; and it is priced pretty fairly. I probably would choose another place for a nice dinner, though it's one of the better places where you could feel comfortable taking kids. As a lunch spot, however, it is one of my regulars."
    Dined on 3/12/2014
  • "Priority seating is a great feature. We were on time, and we were seated immediately while others waited in the lobby. It was a very busy Tuesday night, so the servers were moving about the restaurant quickly. It was almost like watching a performance. The food was delicious with unique flavors. The noise level was energetic, but not distracting. We will go again."

  • "Is there one Buckhead Life restaurant that is not sensational every time all the time? I think not. Waitress (Laurie) was attentive, determined to please and with a great personality . Dining room manager constantly in the room checking on each table and helping the staff . Buckhead Diner is not to be missed for a great evening with great food and service ."

  • "I LOVE THE ATTENTIVENESS OF THE STAFF . I HAD 3 DIFFERENT PEOPLE ENQUIRE IF ALL WAS WELL. GET THE BEET SALAD , VISUALLY IT'S A WORK OF ART AND RIVALS THE TUSCAN SALAD WHICH IS DA BOMB! GREAT BLENDING OF TEXTURES AND TASTE…THIS IS .MY FAVORITE OF ALL BUCKHEAD LIFE RESTAURANTS."

  • "This is our favorite place to meet business guests from out of town. With the varied menu they have the option of a full dinner or a light meal in a relaxed atmosphere. It has never failed to please."

  • "The Buckhead Diner is a favorite of ours, but we rarely make it to the area as we live south of the airport, "outside the perimeter" for the in-town snobs. My sister flew in from Dallas, Texas to help my husband and I celebrate our birthdays which are a week apart. We had friends join us and experienced our usual ,wonderful meal there. Our servers were fantastic, we never even had to look around to be attended to. The wine and cocktails were just right. We all enjoyed the Maytag Chips, of course. Can't wait until my next excuse to dine at the Buckhead Diner."

  • "The best hamburger I have had in a very very long time from any restaurant just amazing, so juicy and flavorful even cooked at medium well the best flavors. Also had the spinach artichoke fritters very very tasty and good. we, also had the Mac and Cheese tots and very tasty perfect amount of cheese and pasta very good addition to the appetizer menu actually so good the person I was with took order home. the s'mores dessert was very very creamy chocolatey good . Worth the calories. Our Waitress was very very helpful, friendly and informative. She made our experience much more pleasant and enjoyable, but I must say every staff member we encounter were extremely friendly and helpful. Plan on going back in the very near future."

  • "My wife and I had heard many rave reviews about the Buckhead Diner through the years so we had high expectations about the food and service. We were not disappointed at all. We were joined by our daughter and son-in-law who had been to the Diner several times. We enjoyed drinks at the bar while we waited for our booth, and then had an excellent meal. My wife and I had the corned beef special, our son-in-law had the famous meatloaf, and our daughter went with the vegetable plate. Our waitress was great. The Diner seemed to filled to capacity, but the "energetic" noise level did not prevent us from having a conversation during dinner. We are eager to return to the Buckhead Diner."
