Buckhead Diner About Grid


  • "I'm not sure if it was because I had just flown in from Canada going 36 hours with no sleep but...when I sunk my teeth into that medium rare "Salute to the South" burger...no joke tears of joy formed in my eyes. The burger was so incredibly rich with juice and flavor melting around my taste buds reminding me that everything is going to be alright. The deep fried cheese balanced out this incredibly rich and soft burger with a crisp sharp strong taste. Every bite for was an experience and to be honest in was sad when the incredible taste roller coaster came to an end. Thank you for this wonderful moment."

  • "Having once lived in Atlanta and frequented the Buckhead Diner, I never miss the opportunity to revisit my favorite restaurant when in town. Our waiter Brian, a fixture at the diner for many years, remains superb. I always order the veal/wild mushroom meatloaf, but at his recommendation, I tried the flank steak. Absolutely superb! And to make my meal even more special, he brought me a slice of the meatloaf as well. Our group ordered the homemade potato chips w/blue cheese -- this remains as delicious as it was when I first tasted it over 20 years ago. Also superb was the white chocolate banana cream pie. For quality, value and service, you can't beat the Buckhead Diner. If you're tired of upscale, chain steak houses that look and taste the same across the USA, try the diner's unique, gourmet versions of diner classics in true retro decor. You won't be disappointed! And you'll keep coming back for more.

    Open Table Review from Steven P.

  • "This iconic Atlanta landmark has quite a reputation and I admit I was cynical. But this place far exceeds not only what I expected but what I hope for in a restaurant. It's called a diner but it isn't only diner food. The service is Nothing short of exceptional. I had the vegetable plate and it was amazing! Loved them all. The lump crab cake was all crab and very well done. We tried the much-raved about Blue cheese chips and they were delicious. Can't wait to go back!"
