We use to love this place. The welcoming staff, the warm dinner rolls, filling portions.. the portions have seemed to shrunk... My side of broccoli had 3 broccoli steems ! Yes three pieces of broccoli as a side- I use to get a full cup..
My husband said the same thing about his fries. The sandwiches have seemed to be decreased as well. We have never left this place without left overs,( even when I was pregnant we d have left overs) we left hungry !
Still has a beautiful river view and cold beer...

Wife and I had the new York strip steak. Very good. The restaurant looked and had an expensive feel but without the price. Top notch waiters. Will be going back.

Steak was overdone and dry. Had to return a dish as there was hair (hairs) in the dish. Also, wrong sides were delivered.

I can't ever recall having a steak so bland, no seasoning and so dry that I should have poured my water on it. Waitress was very nice though

My experience with Buckhead was great. Got seated quickly and the food was very good and our waitress was very on the ball. My problem is with open table. Every time I book with open table they come back wit( after I have been at m6 reservation that it is not point eligible. When I book the reservation I even clicked the add to my points box. This has happened to me every time but once in the last six months. Twice I just gave up and did not get points. Please figure this out

I love going to Buckhead for dinner. We visited for my fiance's birthday this past Saturday night. I honestly wish they were better accommodating for those with food allergies. They don't even have an allergen menu available in house or even online. Which was very disappointing to a mom with a 1 year old with bad food allergies.

Great food at a great price. Loved the huge dinner rolls dripping with butter and their signature honey butter made them even better. The salmon was perfectly done, the Strip was a perfect medium rare. Adrienne, our server was very attentive. Love the rustic lodge decor and the spectacular view on the river!

Had reservations and requested a table. Took almost 30 minutes after arriving to get seated after numerous same size parties were seated. Get to our seats and it was in a half booth/table, which was uncomfortable and cramped. This was the reason we requested a table. Service was subpar compared to the service we've had in the past. Waitress seemed to care more about the very large groups compared to ours. Seemed she knew she would get more tips from those tables. Very disappointed with this visit.

Overall things were good. The special was overrated this time, I love vegetables but this time there was too much and overshadowed the fish. I didn't realize the special was actually $2 more than the non-special version, not worth $15... done with that. Next time I may actually try the regular dish. Pretzels and rolls were a bit over baked this time.. quickly go hard on the outside. Lastly, I consider myself a great tipper (above the 20%, however the servers tip WILL be affected if I am NOT offered dessert, which occurred on this visit. Fried Green Tomatoes - YUMMY!!!!

The restaurant is lovely. The views of Cincinnati are absolutely amazing. The ambience of the restaurant was inviting. My friends and I had a wonderful time. My fish, which was fried, was a tad mushy and lukewarm but the flavor was terrific. Our server was great. She tended to our every need and made sure we had a good experience.

I was pleasantly surprised with this restaurant. The service was good and the waitress was nice and not too pushy. The best part was the food. The food came from the kitchen extremely quick considering the place was almost packed. The food was very good also. Must try the Blue Cheese Cole Slaw. Best I've ever tasted!
