Buckhead Diner - PRIORITY SEATING
Loved the atmosphere—it was definitely a cool place!
The food was okay. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a neat place to eat.
Our dinner was good but not memorable. They tried to seat us right behind the hostess station as you first walk in when there were plenty of other tables available. The staff was too eager to clear our table. One grabbed our wine glass as he scooted by (which still had wine in it!). Another grabbed the bread basket before we were done. The crab omelet was not a traditional omelet but cooked eggs folded over with crabmeat stuffed in between. I would not get that again. The grits were delicious and the best part of the meal. The banana/white chocolate pie was huge and we took half home. This was our first time at the diner and we might try lunch and see how it goes but will probably pass on dinner again.
Wheaton was an excellent waiter
I eat at the Buckhead group restaurants quite often, they seem to struggle getting the steaks cooked properly. Maybe I should stop ordering them! They do try to make it right but it does put a damper on the mood of our dining experience. Also the menus were dirty, nasty!
Best experience I have ever had at Buckhead Diner. The server, Hendrix, was perfection. W
The food was good and the service was excellent. The gnats flying around was disconcerting.
It is the best gourmet diner in the 50 states . Top notch food ,great diner atmosphere , priced affordably for family dining . You can even bring a date there and she will be impressed.
I had dinner at the Buckhead Diner with my daughter recently. It was as good as ever.
We had another great visit to the Buckhead Diner. The food and the service were great as always. My husband had a burger and fries, while I had the grilled cheese and tomato soup for our entrees. I love the way that they make the grilled cheese, it is really different and so good. For dessert my husband had the chocolate cake and I had the Sticky Toffee Pudding, both were amazing.
The restaurant isn’t what it used to be. Had a really odd smell too.
Excellent as always! Great variety on the menu and excellent service. Dine with just appetizers or a meal or both. The food is delicious.
Always a good experience. I love the dinner comfort food options with a Buckhead Dinner flair. The gumbo was fantastic and the filet was cooked perfectly. Awesome.
Our waiter, Hendricks, was great. Large portions. Good food. Nothing fancy, but tasty! Only complaint is that they make you valet park when my car was just steps away from the door. Overall, good experience.
Excellent as usual, great food service and ambiance!
We had a very good dinner and our server, Brain, was excellent. Three had the salmon BLT and one had the vegetable plate. The potato chips and milk shake were especially delicious.
We have been using our summer Buckhead Life cards for years and have enjoyed our experience. We have been to all the Buckhead Life restaurants and have our favorites. We made a reservation for 645pm on Open Table, arrived at 640pm and checked in. There was no indication on open table that this was a priority seating reservation. We waited almost 45 minutes for a table. We were repeatedly told the company line; "we are sorry for the delay, we understand your frustration, la dee da dee da!
This wait was unacceptable. I would rather know that I am signing up for priority seating rather than a reservation beforehand so I can make an informed decision. I would not have come to dinner if I had known what I was getting into.
The food was good. The bar looked way better this time than it did last year. The service was great.
The Buckhead Diner was fabulous!! We were seated right away with no wait. Esence was our server. She was really personable and went over the menu. I had the scallops and butternut squash risotto which was outstanding. My husband had the Fried Chicken and Mac & Cheese which he just raved about. We really enjoyed our entire meal from food to wonderful service. We look forward to dining again soon!!
Just not the same old BHD. We were seated promptly and then waited 15 minutes before seeing our waitress. Ordered our beverages and then waited another 10 minutes for iced teas. Had to ask for brunch mini-muffins and for refills on our drinks. Not sure what’s changed but clearly something’s different.
We had a family dinner for 8 that grew to an unexpected 9. The restaurant was very accommodating, the service was excellent and the food was delicious. I highly recommend Buckhead Diner!
The service was good but the food was expensive and somewhat disappointing. The crab cakes were delicious as usual but the price is expensive-$30 for 2 crab cakes, mashed potatoes and just ok green beans. This dish use to be served with mashed potatoes and asparagus. The meat loaf was disappointing. The taste was bland and served with mash potatoes and green beans. Not so excited about returning.
Their veal mushroom meatloaf is outstanding as well as their shrimp/chicken gumbo soup! And don’t miss the shrimp egg rolls. This restaurant continues to be the best”Diner” ever invented!
This was so much fun. Not the diners we grew up with. A mile above. Great food and service. Would definitely go back.
Always a treat to eat at the diner
My food was good but I was swatting away 4/5 fruit flies throughout my meal. I also had a very long hair in my salad.
This place is consistently great food and service. With that said, be prepared that this is not a "reservation" in the traditional sense. You may have to wait during busy hours even if you use Open Table.
Well - we didn't really get priority seating... had a significant wait. BUT management made up for that by taking extra great care of those of us who got caught in the crunch. Complimentary beverages, apps, and extra attention were offered to offset an unexpected rush hour or two. There were some mis-steps in the service, but somehow they all ended up working out for the best. And the food, as always, was delish! It was great that what could have been a nightmare actually ended up to be a very pleasant dinner!
I enjoy and appreciate Open Table. I have always had a good experience using it.
I was disappointed in Buckhead Diner. I believe it is a little overpriced. I am not a real fish lover,
so the menu was not so appealing at lunch time. I have lived in Atlanta my entire life and Buckhead Diner has always been a favorite of mine. This time not so much.
Mentioned to the host we were celebrating two bdays and waiter never acknowledged the bdays.
We really like the ambience, the place, the atmosphere of Buckhead diner. During this last visit it was a little bit cold/high in the air conditioning and also there was a not so good smell in the place we were near the window so we believe we couldn't enjoy the full experience all the time. But it was very good food as always. I believe we can give it another try.
The service and food were excellent. Our waiter Darron took care of us very well. We both got great cocktails, the meatloaf, a glass of wine, and split the award winning banana pie. Fabulous! Only the parking attendant’s service was lacking.
Our food was very tasty however I had the steak with Ramen noodles and the steak was a little chewy.
We have been to Buckhead Diner several times over the last few years and one thing we have noticed is an odd smell like dirty water in the dining room. Our server was very friendly and helpful. The food was a bit bland--seasoning could use a review (and I don't like spicy food) We had eaten at Bistro Niko not long ago and felt the value was better there, nice size servings and better choice of offerings
The wait, even with priority seating was longer than expected but it is a popular restaurant. Our waitress was outstanding- friendly, attentive, helpful - and the Ford was also outstanding - veggie platter, hanger steak and the veal meatloaf, yum! - except for the filet my daughter ordered. It was WAY over cooked. Unfortunately we didn’t know until the end of the meal when she didn’t finish it. The waitress was very gracious and gave us a couple of free deserts (which were also fantastic). Great dinner spot - just expand a wait and don’t order the filet!
Long wait for main meal restaurant extremely busy managers were very helpful
Excellent food & service! Great place for dates and special occasions! Everyone is so nice and very professional! Great menu!
As always, Buckhead Diner is pleasure to dine at. Great menu, excellent food preparation, polished service. Many great restaurants lose there edge over time. Not Buckhead Diner. It retains all the goodness I recall when I first dined there when it opened.
They could not bring hot cup of coffee. The breakfast dishes were very mediocre.
Mike was so much fun! He really is a big reason we come back! Loved his gift of deviled eggs to the table too! We will be back soon and we will order the deviled eggs!!! Our compliments to the chef... crab cakes were over the top... and the service wonderful. It’s become my favorite place to bring out of Townes.
great food and service. paying $2 to park at lunch when no one is there is a little too much
