Buckhead Diner - PRIORITY SEATING
We enjoyed a leisurely paced reunion luncheon
The server was gracious, efficient and we never felt
pressed to finish. Loved the traditional setting and it lent a sense of the Atlanta I have enjoyed for decades.
I did miss the chips with blue cheese recently taken off the menu.
Love the lively ambiance at Bulkhead Diner. Our waiter was a trip and kept us entertained while taking care of us. The food was very good too! We did find the dining room to smell of fish that was being cooked in the open kitchen which was a bit unpleasant but other than that we had a great evening!
A very pleasant Sunday brunch. Food was very good and service was excellent.
We returned just for the sticky toffee pudding. I’m just saying. Wow.
We were early and then received email that we did not show... service was slow our poor waiter was sooooo busy.
Great Food is great and we had a really nice time
Great place to grab a casual bite. Good service and fast. Recommend priority seating if you get there after 6:00 PM. Valet parking is a must. All around good experience.
One of the most dependable restaurants in Atlanta.
Great first time experience!!!
Wow. This place was an amazing surprise. Great food and incredible service. Everyone enjoyed their food. The salmon was out of this world. Really!!! The waiter was a jack of all trades, which made for a wonderful customer experience. Will definitely return.
Was excited to see sauteed Bay Scallops on the menu. They came on a bed of risotto, but were overly salty, and I like salt! When I asked for some bread, the waitress said she had to check, since they were running low that evening. She eventually brought it.
My first less than excellent experience at Buckhead Diner. I'll give it another try.
Fun atmosphere/decor and food is traditional diner food w a twist. Desserts are FANTASTIC.
The food was gross our server was subpar and the call ahead did not benefit ud
Awesome food and 5 star service!
The service was terrible and it was apparent that the color of my families skin didnt seem to match well with the white tablecloths. Terrible experience...
We had a business guest that flew from Asia and took him here for dinner. We made a reservation to expedite our waiting time. We checked with the host at same time as a walk in, and they were told wait time without a reservation would be 35-40 min. At the time we arrived, 6:15 the waiting area was full, but moved fast. We were surprised as we saw several walk ins be seated as we continued to wait, even the one that checked in at the same time as we did was seated after 15 min. Wait. After 35 min had passed, We were the only ones left waiting and I checked again with the hosts. We were told we would be seated in a min. We waited another 10 min, and not a word of apology or even empathy from the host. At the table service was on the slow side, it took another 15 min to get drinks, and another 20 min for the server to check back with us to take the order. Once we placed our order, food came promptly and was very good. Again, not a word of apology from the server either. I know it was a busy night, but other tables next to ours managed by same server were getting much more attention. In general, we like the place and believe it may have been a service glitch mostly on the server, having many tables. The attitude of the hosts, however, was not acceptable from our perspective.
The food was excellent and the wait staff was even better! The only reason 5 stars not given is due to the host that sat us. He was quite rude!
I enjoyed meeting a friend for lunch at the diner. The food was very good. My only complaint is about the valet. I pulled up to the valet stand at 3pm on 3/9. The valet was very rude! Valet parking was $2.00 and I gave the valet 5.00. He took my money and did not offer me any change back. When I asked him for my change he replied “You can just take care of this when you leave. I work off tips.” Then, he slapped the five dollar bill and valet ticket in my hand. As a customer, I tip after a service is performed. This employee had not given me a ticket or parked my vehicle. However, the valet that brought my car back to me upon leaving the restaurant was very nice. I gave him a nice tip.
The place was great and the date was a bore
We had a great time. Took our grandkids for a special trip to Atlanta to go to 6 flags, aquarium and Coke museum. This was our initial meal in Atlanta and set a high bar.
Ask for Brian. Best waiter in Atlanta
Everything was excellent. A great dinner and concert with David Foster.
Our meal was good, service was great... it was very busy.. hard to hear
The Diner is ALWAYS FANTASTIC!
Bar, Service, Food....top notch!! We have our favorites and the Kitchen NEVER disappoints! Even small requests, they do without hesitation, which is greatly appreciated! Love the Diner, and know that we can count on it each and every time. An absolutely wonderful Dining experience, for regulars like us!!
The only thing, and merely an observation, certainly nothing that holds the restaurant responsible in ANY way, is how completely sloppy people dress to come to a very nice, well respected, iconic Atlanta restaurant. Braves hats, baseball clothes, and females that looked like they just washed their cars, or came from the gym. Appalling!! Shape up Atlanta, you should do better!!!
I’ve been here before, and normally the service is stellar. This time was different. The service was slow, my order was incorrect, and overall the experience was not what I expected for a $50 meal. I will go back, and I’m hoping I just caught them on an “off” evening.
I have dined here many times and the service was terrible. It took 20 minutes after being seated to get water, and while the meal came out quickly, dessert took another 30 minutes of waiting. I was under impressed.
Went there for a family birthday. Great food, cocktails and service.
Fun location. Consistent great quality food and service.
Great as always
Service is amazing- not your typical diner (upscale). Review the menu before dining. Full service bar.
Excellent food & service
Good food. Excellent service
Great place. Service was fair. Special of the day was very good.
We were there at 5pm so the noise level was low. The service was very attentive and the food was outstanding. The meals we had were crab cakes and mahi-mahi. The over the top banana cream pie was exceptional and enough to share. We’ll be back!
As expected service was great and food was enjoyed by all
Brunch was delicious and the server was great! She was friendly and efficient. We were seated early and had a great meal!
Wonderful food and service, as usual!
One of the people in our party ordered a burger with NO PICKLES. The burger was presented with numerous pickles. It was sent back advising what was wrong then a new burger was presented without pickles and onion. Onion was not requested to be removed. For that screw up, they do not get 5 stars.
We were all very impressed with Buckhead Diner and ease to make last minute reservation. Will definitely recommend to our Canadian travellers whenever they are in Atlanta - excellent! Thanks
