  • "Buckhead's always has fantastic food and our most recent visit was no exception. Filet was cooked exactly to order. Drinks better than usual. The waiter didn't rush us yet brought next course when appropriate."
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "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."

  • "Service and food was outstanding. Best filet mignon ever. Ambience was good, although seating could be a bit more comfortable."
    Dined on 6/17/2014
  • "The service was great however the food as only average at best. A little pricey but if food had been better it would have been worth it.The place is too dark, drab and dated. it really needs a makeover"

  • "We have been to Buckhead's several times over the years. On our recent visit, the food and service were both exceptional."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 6/5/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "My wife and I have been to Buckhead's twice and have not been disappointed. They serve great steaks and seem to take pride in getting them cooked to the correct temperature every time. Service was excellent, responsive and attentive without being intrusive. Good night. Would and will recommend to friends."
    Dined on 4/27/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 4/21/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 4/26/2014
  • "Buckheads is located in a not too appealing strip mall. Most of the people in our group drove past it the first time around. Once you step in, the restaurant posses old world charm but with an updated menu. Most of our group had steak or meat of some sort and all of them were perfectly cooked and tasted wonderful. Wine selection was extensive. Highly recommend for a special dinner."

  • "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. "

  • "Always a reliable, well prepared meal served with panache. One of our favorites for a special occasion."

  • "We went for my wife's birthday and found the experience to be worthy of the restaurant's reputation. We were greeted warmly, our server was knowledgeable, efficient, friendly, and he went out of his way to make sure our needs were met. Everything we ordered exceeded our expectations and it was a rare treat to be in an atmosphere that was quiet and elegant."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "We were celebrating two birthdays and the experience was amazing as usually. We come to Buckheads for special occasions and business visits. The service, food, and atmosphere is always amazing!"

  • "After sending my steak back twice and being disregarded, I decided to call it a night. Me and my wife decided to spend our Anniverary Dinner at a different Restaurant in Richmond. Will not dine at Buckhead's again. (Hondo's and Bookbinders are awesome choices)"
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "A beautiful dining experience including hot expertly prepared food. The dining room was filled with conversation among surrounding tables yet quiet enough to engage in a personal conversation without talking above the other customers. An evening to remember. The service was very professional. The best my wife and I have been subjected to in Richmond."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "We really had a great time dining in at Buckheads Richmond. The staff was very friendly and our waiter was awesome. He made sure we had everything we needed at all times. The food was out of this world and I am excited to say we will be definitely dining again, most likely very soon."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "My husband and I ate here with some friends we hadn't seen in a while. The wait staff was proficient and courteous and knowledgeable of the menu. The food was amazing, but the potato cake was not so world famous though; it was just a potato cake. The vegetables were extremely fresh and the steaks were definitely worth the money. I absolutely plan to go back."
    Dined on 3/9/2014
  • "our first time here....beats Shula's, Flemings, Ruths Chris, etc. The filet mignon with crab on top special was the perfect combo.....great suggestion from the waiter. Awesome! We will be back soon and have already started telling all our friends!"
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "The food and waiter were fine. However, it took over two hours, which was too long. The table behind us had a group of young intoxicated individuals whose antics over-shadowed our conversation."
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "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"
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "This restaurant would receive a 10 star rating if you had one. The service level from the hostess to the busboy was fantastic. The wine list is amazing and the food was unbeatable."
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "For a much better experience, head to Fleming's or Ruth's Chris. The wait staff was unfriendly and delayed (took 10 minutes to present us with a menu). The hostess sat us in a weird back room near the kitchen. I felt like it was 1962, if you know what I mean. I would not recommend this place. I was quite disappointed. It's an "old" Richmond gem, and I can understand why."
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "The Food was great!! Our steak you could cut with a butter knife! Our server was terrific, nice, and attentive! We were a little surprised at how expensive the meal was, We had surf and turf and that alone was 148$ However we had a gift card so we weren't totally devastated! LOL However, our bill at final 167$ and we didn't even have a glass of wine was a little sad."

  • "They have great steaks and offer wonderful specials too. The service was good. I had a problem with my steak but the server and manager was very quick to fix the problem. I was celebrating my birthday and I got to pick a dessert on the house."
    Dined on 2/21/2014
  • "As always the food was excellent and the service was attentive and professional. I have eaten here many times for business but this was for my anniversary. A perfect place for business or pleasure."
    Dined on 2/21/2014
  • "Buckheads remains our favorite steak house. It is quiet, serenely elegant, offers great food (centered on the steak crowd) and has one of the best wine lists around. And as great as the wine list is, it also allows me to bring my own wine ($25 corkage fee), so I bring some of the best from my wine cellar."
    Dined on 2/16/2014
  • "Thank you to the management, server and host staff for such an amazing, intimate, award worthy evening for my husband and I. You have set the bar high for us, and we are just trying to come up with MORE special occasions to warrant our return! Thank you again!"
    Dined on 2/16/2014
  • "Buckhead's if easily my favorite restaurant. The menu is limited; but what they do, they do well! The steaks are always cooked perfectly, the seasonal veggies are incredible, and the family-style side dishes are just fantastic. The dessert menu looks phenomenal, but I have never had the opportunity to order from it. The service at Buckhead's is just as lovely. This restaurant offers everything you expect from a high class steakhouse. A fair warning though: you will pay for the luxury here, with entrees between $35-50 per plate."

  • "My fiancée and I came to Buckheads to celebrate 10 years together. From the moment we walked in the staff made us feel welcome and appreciated. I have to admit, I am very selective about the beef I eat. The filet was the best I have ever had, cooked to perfection, flavorful, and fork tender. While Buckheads may be a bit more expensive than other steak restaurants, they make Schula's look/taste like fast food. My friends recommended this restaurant and they were right, service, atmosphere, and food are all wonderful. The next day I asked my fiancée what he wanted for dinner and he said "a glass of wine so I can relive last night's dinner." We will certainly consider Buckheads first when selecting a location for a special dinner."

  • "We had reservations and they took us at the correct time. However it was one and one-half hours later before we got our food. I ordered prime rib (which I assume was already cooked) and my wife got filet mignon and that didn't take long to cook that. My wife enjoyed her food but mine had no taste to it and it was served cold. I definitely would not got back. When we left there were open tables and people were standing at the front of the restaurant waiting to be seated and no one was taking care of them."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Simply put...we were extremely pleased with all aspects of our experience! Outstanding wine list! Great food! Great service! We even had the opportunity to meet the owner who was simply wonderful. Our waiter recommended the calamari to start and a glass of there house wine...both were outstanding! We ordered a filet and lobster tail to share...while both were delightful the filet was ages to perfection and melt in your mouth delicious! Our waiter then surprised us with a solid chocolate dessert that was to die for! We have lived in the area for a while and not sure why we had never tried this "Old Richmond" gem out before...we will return many times over!"

  • "I was impressed to find such a nice restaurant in a strip mall. As a restauranteur and restaurant consultant I understand how important reviews like these are. Everything was great but I felt this place has the potential to be extraordinary. The seasonings used on their scallop special and the julienne vegetables was outstanding. I ordered the Cowboy cut rib-eye. The meat was cooked to perfection however I felt the meat was not carefully picked. The meat was way to lean and over cleaned. I would definitely give this place another shot but feel the main entree item needs to be perfect! Otherwise the staff was friendly and the atmosphere was perfect."
    Dined on 2/11/2014
  • "My only comment is that they did not have all items listed on the menu available, i.e. I ordered the double thick pork chop and they did not have any so I had to switch to a steak."
    Dined on 2/9/2014
  • "Everything was above average. Service was excellent. The bill was a little less than the comparable steak houses that serve prime beef. Good restaurant. No complaints."

  • "While staying over for a business meeting at a local hotel, Buckheads was recommended. The hotel shuttled bus took us there as a service. They were unable to pick us up after dinner. The bar area was lively and the drinks were well-made. I have had better attention from a bartender; however, it was average. The waiter provided OUTSTANDING service. The food was OUTSTANDING. The night was great until it was time to go. We had to wait for approximately 30-45 minutes or longer for a taxi. I realized that the restaurant was located in an area where there is very little traffic. We were unable to reach the taxi company provided by the hotel. This was not the fault of Buckheads. Make arrangements to return to the hotel prior to dinner."
