    The food was excellent, though a little pricey. I would not recommend the rack of lamb if you are super hungry. The prime ribeye; however, is very filling and "melt in your mouth" delicious

    Buckheads is always an enjoyable evening , food was great and service was excellent we were not rushed but well attended. We like that a dinner order is just that a dinner not a lone piece of steak on a plate and you have to order your sides as extras. Our only complaint was we wanted a 7pm reservation was told ( on open table) we could have a 6:15 or 7:45 reservation we took the 6:15 even though we would have to rush. The whole time we were there at least half the tables were open there was no reason we could not have had a 7pm reservation!

    While we always enjoyed meals at Buckhead's, with the arrival of other competitors in the Richmond area we started going to other high-end steakhouses and steakhouse chains in the area about five years ago. While none of them were bad, our recent meal at Buckhead's reminded us of the special character of that restaurant. Since we last went they've added prime beef, expanded their menu, and given the restaurant a 'facelift' that has made the restaurant a bit more elegant. Outstanding food, excellent non-ostentatious service, and a phenomenal (yet reasonably priced) wine list all at a reasonable price. We don't' plan to wait another five years for our next visit.

    We had an absolutely wonderful meal, a delicious bottle of wine, and our waiter finished off our evening with an amazing dessert with a candle in it! Totally romantic, special evening! My husband had never been to Buckhead's and afterwards he said that the meal at Buckhead's was probably the best he has ever had - from the lobster bisque to the dessert. He loved it all!

    I took my daughter there for her 18th birthday. We were seated first by a large group of at least 16 people and couldn't hear ourselves talk. We were asked to be moved. Then we were seated by the kitchen. There were many other tables that I felt would have been a better choice. After already being moved once, my daughter was uncomfortable being moved again. It was very loud by the kitchen and the waiters were constantly going by our table. I would not recommend that table for a nice dinner and/or experience. I also would not say that energetic is a good word for the noise level that we experienced .

    Buckheads has been RVA's premier locally owned chophouse for three decades, and a recent visit for our anniversary confirmed that it is still one of the finest in Richmond. My filet was superb. My wife attests that the Crab Imperial is the best she's ever had. The service was thoroughly professional. The wine list features an excellent range of vintages at diverse prices. We will definitely be back again and soon.

    My wife and I went to Buckhead's 6 years ago when we were in Richmond for the weekend. That dinner was exquisite! Fast-forward to this year and we decided to drive down to Richmond from our home in Stafford to dine again at Buckhead's for our 17th Anniversary. Once again Buckhead's did not disappoint us. Ambiance of our booth was wonderful - we could actually have a quiet conversation (unlike many modern restaurants). Our server was great. He was attentive without being overbearing and just the right combination of friendliness, yet completely knowledgeable and professional. The food, once again, was exquisite. We will be back again as it is well worth the drive for us!

    We had a wonderful experience at Buckhead's the other evening. We had steak fromage and steak au poivre; both were great, but my steak fromage was just a little better. Dessert was also really good with the bread pudding winning over the key lime pie. Wine options vary from $6 a glass to hundreds of dollars a bottle, so there is something for everyone's taste. The restaurant is in a strip mall, but don't let the outside sway you. This is a really nice restaurant with great food and service.

    Were looking for a new dining experience, and found to be quiet, excellent atmosphere for celebrating our anniversary. My husband's steak was very good and my crab cakes excellent. Sides were good, my potato cake ok, interesting, and the chocolate dessert with ice cream was excellent. Would go there again and recommend to others.

    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.

    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.
