Business lunch for 2, both of us had made reserviations via OpenTable for 12:15pm, but they couldn't seat us until 12:30pm. Service and the food was very good. The music was playing a bit too loud for my taste, but we were able to converse without shouting. I will certainly go there again when I am in town.

Was a great experience at Buckhead. We had a nice view of the river and our food was fantastic. The chicken fried chicken was out of this world. Great place to go.

We were in Newport for a friends' getaway. We picked Buckhead Mountain Grill for a birthday dinner. We couldn't have been more pleased. Food was excellent. The salad was amazing. Their dressings are homemade. We had steaks, fish and chicken. All were wonderful. We will visit again. Our server was Lisa, and she took great care of us! Highly recommend!

Once again this was a very good dining experience. We had a nice booth overlooking the Ohio River. Our server did an excellent job. Our food was tasty and hot.
Only drawback was the noise level. It was difficult to carry on a conversation. We left early and went outside, sat in our mini-van with our friends and enjoyed our visit for another hour and a half. We would have preferred to stay inside, order another drink and sit in the air conditioning.

Had a nice evening, it was a first date and sitting outside was very nice with a great skyline. Food was just ok, the fish and potato were not too warm but we both ate it anyway as we had another place to go. Thanks

The butter bourbon steak was crap. Undercooked then overcooked. When it came back the toppings were gone and it then had no flavor at all. Very disappointing.

Our waitress was excellent, and we were right by a window overlooking the river. The restaurant was very clean, and the food was not only excellent, but there was plenty of it. The happy hour prices were reasonable, and there were a variety of appetizers and drinks from which to choose. I had the grilled white fish, rice and creamed spinach. There were six of us, and each one had something different; everyone was pleased with his/her meal. We will definitely return!

The food wasn't bad, wasn't spectacular. Fair priced, service was Okay. The river view is probably the draw to this place. I wouldn't go there expecting to be wowed, but overall not a bad experience

I wear hearing aids, sat in a chair near my husband, and STILL had difficulty hearing him! I don't know if it was just the noisy conversations, or the music, or both...perhaps Buckheads should investigate noise reduction furnishings for its restaurants...it might encourage higher ratings and MORE GUESTS...at least happier ones!

After a long day on the river we decided to eat at Buckheads. The tea hit the spot and our server actually kept up with the four of us. My wings were very tasty.

After having friends and family share great reviews, we decided to give it a try and it was outstanding! We got seated before our reservation and service was quick and beyond professional. Tyler was our server and he was amazing and so personable. He shared it was his first week, but we couldn’t even tell! We will definitely be going back soon

Seated immediately at prime outside table! Wonderful host.... but it Went downhill from there. Waited quite a while to have a server approach us for drinks. Waited quite a while to get the drinks! Fortunately, the drinks were very good and nicely served. The dinner order not so much. One salad came long after the other two..... the steak was rubbery and swimming in something called bourbon butter which was unpleasantly sweet. I was charged extra for sour cream and bacon on a baked potato! The chicken entree was good but the mashed potatoes were heavy and dry. It’s a great restaurant usually -I go often and will go again - but perhaps Saturday night is a bad choice !!

I made a reservation on open table for 7pm and we didn't get seated until 8pm. Apparently the kitchen was backed up and the manager told the hostess not to seat anymore people. Totally unacceptable. Do not take reservations for a certain time if you cannot accommodate it. We were offered a free appetizer, once I begged to be seated outside to get out of the very cold bar area. The server and food were both good. Totally put off by the hour wait. That is why I gave 2 stars.

It’s not that our experience was bad- it was just uncomfortable. My bachelorette party of nine came to dinner at 6pm this past Saturday. It was VERY hot outside- but it wasn’t any cooler inside. We were so hot and uncomfortable the entire time we left as fast as we could. I had to change clothes due to the temperature and my sister was sick. I can without doubt say that it probably had something to do with how hot it was outside but there has to be something they could do to make it more comfortable? I’ve never been in a restaurant in summer where it was that miserable inside.

Ordered medium steak, it was over cooked to a well done, 2nd steak arrived after others with me had finished eating so I refused steak and asked that the meal be taken off my check. Others were with us and person ordered a burger cooked medium, it was also well done. Lady with us ordered unsweetened iced tea with lemon. She got sweet tea without lemon.
Will not return!

Great food, great river view, great service!!!
Casual relaxing atmosphere inside and outside, weather permitting. Inside noise level was very loud. The televisions need to GO away in the dining areas, much to distracting to diners when you are trying to eat and everywhere you look there is a TV. It’s hard to have a conversation with your guests when everyone is watching TV. Keep them in the bar area where they belong.
