    The food was perfectly prepared and delicious. If you can't find a wine that you like, then you are too picky! They were also very thoughtful. When making the reservation on OpenTable, I mentioned that it was our anniversary. They obviously read the comments as I did not mention it when we arrived. They provided a couples dessert at the end of the meal!

    This was my first time to Buckheads and I enjoyed it. I've been to all the top steakhouses in the area and it holds it own. The dark wood decor makes a classy ambiance, and the steaks have the expected flavor of high quality meats prepared in high temperatures. I love that their steaks come with sides and salad. I would go back again to try something else.

    Few restaurants are worthy of a meal in the $200 range for 2 people. But this one is. I cannot imagine why anyone would go to Morton's or Ruth Chris or any other steak house when Buckhead's is here. This is a special occasion restaurant for us due to pricing, but we love it every time we are able to swing it. The food is never anything but amazing. The Steak Au Poivre is my husband's favorite and the side dishes are always perfectly done. The bar is also very nice - great Cosmopolitans (although at $15 per they should be. that is a little over the top even for fine dining). I would say the only improvement on this spot would be the location. A strip mall is, well, a strip mall. Not too appealing. The food makes up for it!

    We liked the feel of the restaurant. It felt as if my date and I were the only people in the restaurant. Our wait staff was attentive, responsive, and knowledgeable with regards to the wines on hand - of which there are many to choose from. The Surf and Turf we ordered was tasty and wonderfully presented. The steak melted in our mouths. Cooked to perfection and very satisfying. Portion sizes were just right. My date and I were able to enjoy each our conversation as the noise level within the restaurant was practically non-existent. I would recommend Buckhead's for a romantic night on the town.

    My wife and I were in Richond for a quick get a way. We did some looking on-line and decided Buckheads looked like a good place to try. We were not disappointed. It was a Wednesday night, so it was not very busy. Our server was excellent, he was very attentive, had a sense of humor and made the meal even more enjoyable. Our steaks were cooked perfectly and desserts were awesome.

    Buckheads is the place we go to celebrate special occasions or just spend time with good friends. Food is incredible, service attentive but unobtrusive. It's one the few restaurants that carries my husband's favorite small batch bourbon and the wine list is impressive! Love this restaurant. Worth every penny!

    We went to Buckheads to celebrate my nephew's graduation from MSG school in Quantico and my birthday. The steak entrees were all cooked to perfection. We asked for a quiet corner and we were seated in a quiet backroom which gave the appearance of having our own personal dining room. The service was excellent and our server non-obstrusive. Desserts for all 3 diners were on the house in honor of our celebration dinner. I would definitely return to this restaurant. This is the place for special occasions.

    I was taken to Buckhead's for my birthday dinner. The service was wonderful..never had to ask for anything. The filet was so tender it would just melt in your mouth. My daughter had the crab cakes and she said they were the best she has ever eaten. Wonderful experience and even dessert to go ..on the house for my birthday.

    I had the surf and turf, my steak and lobster were both overcooked and tough...and the beef was dry. My wife had the filet, and hers was overcooked and dry as well. The wine was great and so were the mash potatoes...so that is the only thing positive I can say. Service was average at best.

    If you are tired of the chains give Buckheads a try. Great ambience, superb steaks. Only negative at all was that service was a bit slow but not ubearably so. Calamari was excellent, salad was fresh and crisp, New York Strip was thick, juicy and cooked to order. Wife and son were equally pleased with their ribeyes. Remains my favorite steakhouse in Richmond.

    The last time we visited Buckheads was 20 years ago. The main reason we haven't been there in so long is the price. We were celebrating a special occasion with friends and decided this is where we wanted to go. The food was exquisite and the server was very attentive but not overly so. The only thing that will keep us from returning again in the near future is the lack of "affordable" wines. There were very few to pick from that were less than $50 a bottle. We were able to find a wine that we all liked that was $50 a bottle, but our choices were limited. Overall, though, it was a fine dining experience in every way.

    My wife and I were traveling through Richmond and we always like to stop at local restaurants instead of the chains. Buckheads was definitely a nice surprise for us. Our steaks were awesome and cooked just right. Service, ambiance, wine list was all top of the line. What a great way to start off our vacation. Don't let the neighborhood center location fool you. This place has all the goods.

    Recently, we were looking for a solid local restaurant in the Richmond area to have a relaxing dinner not only on a Friday or Saturday night, but during the week as well and for those special occasions. We re-discovered Buckheads. The service from the time you walk in, to the time you leave is fantastic. We've have dined several times in the last couple of months and each time a different day and time and have had different items on the menu. It's all been terrific. The bar drinks are not watered down and the wine list is solid. The steaks are tender, the vegetables are fresh and the caramelized onions are just plain awesome. The salad is included in the price of the entree. The deserts are a good ending to the meal.

    Love Buckheads and, but last night was not a good experience. The waiter was not personable, overweight, and was unkempt. The special appetizer was seared scallops which I wanted as an entree and the waiter said I could. When my entree arrived there were three scallops rather than the 6 the waiter promised. I asked why and he said he was confused--that he hadn't realized I wanted two appetizers and that he could bring me another one! I told him it was fine. The other service was slow and we had to ask for things such as butter and salt & pepper. The other entrees were delicious--as always, and the other staff members were gracious and helpful. We will go back, but hope our next experience is the same as our past visits.

    The food was great and the atmosphere is very relaxing. Our waiter seemed bored (to the point of being annoyed ...while still being polite) and the service was slow (from beginning to end 3+ hours - which was fine for visiting and enjoying the good food); the waiter was polite, but indifferent and absent between delivery of various courses; the only part of the meal that was lacking was the salad which looked and tasted premade and sitting for a while - nothing exciting -- also contained mushrooms which I had told the waiter I was very allergic to at the beginning of our order
