LOVE Buckhead's! I ordered a small Kentucky Hot Brown and their Blue Cheese Cole Slaw. Both exceeded my expectations. They make the best hot brown around. Our waiter was the best ever. Very attentive and friendly. We had a window view of the Ohio river and the experience was fantastic.

We were seated quickly and given a very nice view. The service was good.
We were very disappointed with the food! We have the whitefish which we were told was grouper. It was soft and mealy, like it had been frozen too long. The green beans were tasteless.
It’s a lovely place to enjoy the Cincinnati skyline but the food was mediocre.

Our waitress was very polite and attentive but the food was not so good. I ordered a ribeye cooked medium and it was very thin and cooked well done(tough and chewy). My husband got the sirloin cooked well done and it came out medium/medium rare in spots.

Food was delicious! Must try the Kentucky hot brown! We ordered the sampler appetizer, not much there for the price. Our waitress, Lisa, did a wonderful job. She checked on us often, and our beverages never went empty. A lot of guests waiting for a table at 6:45 on a Saturday night, the hostess seated us within 5 minutes of our reservation. We will definitely return.

We really like going to Buckhead but it will be quite awhile before we go back. My wife and daughter ordered burgers cooked medium. They were served very rare with cold centers. We brought it to the attention of the waiter and all he did was take off one diet pepsi. He said he couldn't discount the food. We were not looking for a discount, but he should have involved a manager.

Reservation was for 6:15 and we were seated before 6:30. We told our waitress we were dining before a play and were on a time schedule. She recommended several items on the menu that would be the quickest to prepare. There were 6 in our party and food was served promptly and waitress very attentive to our needs.

Was very crowded and noisy. They did accommodate a larger crowd than usual so I gave them 4 stars. Soup was way too thick and cold. Salads and chicken were good. Service good but waited for drinks a long time.

Christmas Eve dinner with our daughter and two young boys. We had 5:45pm reservations and our church service ran a bit late. We called to let the restaurant know and they understood. We arrived around 6pm but there was a note on the door saying closed for employee event. Since we had a confirmed reservation they seated us and everything was great. Food, service and atmosphere. All the employees were very pleasant and attentive There were other patrons being served so we did not feel rushed whatsoever although we felt a little guilty for being there knowing they planned to close at 6pm.

We had a very enjoyable dinner.

Thanks to all the folks at Buckhead for a pleasant Christmas Eve meal with family.

Best regards,
Bob Obermeyer

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.

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
