With my family, we had brunch on Sunday at the Buckhead Diner. We arranged in advance for priority seating-meaning that we would be seated as soon as possible following the arranged time. That system gave us time to order a beverage at the bar and we were seated shortly thereafter. We each had different items from the brunch menu and... More

Enjoyed a lovey family meal in this famous Atlanta restaurant - has a large picture gallery in the entrance of celebrities who have enjoyed the service over the years. Interior is very cool and takes you back to a bygone era of luxurious steam ships and train locomotives. Great selection and interesting range of very tasty dishes is combined with... More

We were a party of five for dinner. As you walk into the dining car the atmosphere is great. I had the Southern Pan Fried chicken dinner with French fries instead of the Mac & Cheese. I have never seen so much food on a plate. The chicken was hot and cooked perfectly. The breading stayed on the piece and... More

Had a great experience on New Years Eve. The atmosphere was festive, service was awesome. We had a great meal. Received an appetizer, complements of the kitchen which was super tasty (Fried Calamari). I would go back.

As a long, long time patron of the Buckhead Life family of restaurants, and the Buckhead Diner particularly, I was saddened this evening by mediocre service, average quality food and a feeling of generally uninspired dining. So disappointed.

Food was amazing. Blue cheese nachos , calamari, Mahi-mahi. Coffee cake with cinnamon ice cream. Our waiter Ryan was a hoot. Knowledgeable of the menu, FUNNY! Ask for him when you visit. I got some great one liners from him. This place is going to be in my list every time I visit Atlanta.

This was our first time visiting the Buckhead Diner. We were greeted and sat promptly. We had the calamari as our appetizer. My wife had the Coffee Rubbed pork and I had the Chef's Special which was pork tenderloin over sautéed spinach. The appetizer and entrees were outstanding. Afterwards we enjoyed the famous white chocolate banana cream pie with coffee.... More

First let me say that the wait staff was very good. My first impression though was the dirty white jackets of the staff. I was at this restaurant 10 years ago and it was phenomenal. Food, cleanliness, everything about it was good. This time the food was sub-par. Nothing great about it. I had the burger and it was just... More
