The food was outstanding -- every main dish (New York Strip Steak, Crab dinner, and Shrimp) plus the vegetable medley and specialty potato was excellent. Extensive wine list as well.
Service was excellent.

We fell in love with Buckhead's. Mark and our server Rick went above and beyond to make sure we had a special meal. Steaks were cooked to perfection. Don't skip on the pan-seared scallops and pommes frites - both were stand out. For fine dining, Buckhead's is incredibly approachable with a cozy and relaxed atmosphere. We'll be back.

Somewhat disappointed this visit, it is the little things that make a difference whether the experience is good or great - Buckheads is good, where Ruths Chris, Mortons and Flemmings are great. OK, I am spoiled and expect to be treated as a lady - host didn’t pull my chair out for me and was blocking my husband so he couldn’t get over to do it, then was disappointed they didn’t have just plain iced tea (how is that not a staple?). I had told them when making the reservation we were celebrating a Birthday and Valentines, not even the slightest mention from the host or waiter or even asking if we were celebrating anything special - then when my husband got up to go to the bathroom the waiter comes and hands ME the check - sorry, I am old school, the gentlemen should pay or at the very least the waiter should have waited until both parties have returned to their seats and put it in the middle of the table. Food was good, but was grossed out when we got home and realized the waiter put all of our left overs in the same food container when we had two completely separate meals - prices are great - but again it is those little things when it comes to service and the customer experience that make them lackluster compared to the competition.

Don’t let the location fool you. The food and service is excellent. The noise level from the bar area and the restroom location keeps this from being a truly fine dining experience but not enough that I would not recommend it.

This was one of the best meal I have had in Richmond. The steak and sides were fantastic. The atmosphere was wonderful and it was quiet enough to have a conversation with people at your table. The desserts were very good. Great selection of whiskeys.

Nice evening out to celebrate my husband's birthday. This is one of our go-to places for special occasions and it did not disappoint. Not the least expensive place in town, but perfect for a celebration.

I have been meaning to try Buckheads since I moved to Richmond 15 years ago. I am not sure why it took me so long to try it out. The food was amazing. My wife and I started off with escargot. It was excellent. My wife had the Steak and Crab and I had the Scottish Salmon, both were exceptional. The amount of steak and crab on my wife’s dish was impressive. I was able to have my own medallion :). The steak and salmon were cooked perfectly. The wine menu is also very impressive. With the quality and quantity of food and the excellent service, we will definitely be back.

Our party waited at least 15 minutes after being seated before being waited on. The dining experience was very long. Took along time to get the apps then along time to get the main food. That is my only complaint. Everyone-6 of us- that commented it took too long. I also recommended this dining to a friend and they came the Saturday before us. It's funny that she said they had such along wait that they were offered a free desert. So it doesn't seem to be an isolated incident. We still loved it and would come back.

Best filet mignon I've ever had. Was so pleased to find a chop house where sides are not a la carte.
Disappointed there was no Shiraz by the glass; however, the Merlot was excellent.
Dessert did not let us down either. My daughter and I shared the Key Lime pie.

After spending the day visiting the VMFA, my husband and I took my mother-in-law to dinner at Buckheads. The location may seem a bit off-putting, but don't let that discourage you from going inside. The food is exceptional; the service was wonderful; the prices are very reasonable. Buckheads has an old fashioned decor, kind of neighborhood clubby, woody, English - very comfortable. Would highly recommend Buckheads.

The Beef here is amazing. Soft as butter. Cooked to temp exactly. The salad dressings were not outstanding. The Bernaise was a little blah. The potatoes (potato cake and the potato du jour) both good. The grilled veggies were great. Lets face it...you come to Buckheads for Beef and it never disappoints.
