A classic on my “must do” list that I finally visited. Sadly, they were about to “re-close” due to the riots and so it was a bit sedate. The room is beautiful. Food is great. Service was A plus. Can’t wait to go back when Atlanta is back to normal!!!

Everything was delicious. I was a bit disappointed they had a limited menu, but completely understand the reason for it. I had the meatloaf which never disappoints.

I called to confirm they were open for dine in. They were. Walked right in at 1:30p on a Sunday. Perfect booth. Clean as clean can be. Only a few customers were spread out. Plenty of staff attending to our every need and more. The service was perfect. Very attentive. I know restaurants cannot make it with such a low customer count, but I did take advantage of it. My date (a birthday lunch) and I were doing hand stands over the service. Meal was perfect, let alone the banana cream pie for a birthday surprise. Totally not expected. So glad no one sang Happy Birthday!

Love this place and the priority seating always helps as well. They had a smaller menu but had all the best sellers on there and dinner and service were fantastic.

First time out after virus! Went to our old favorite! Very different Friday@7:45. Maybe even less than ten tables occupied? Can u imagine this?
Of course there was a riot going on in Atlanta? Also just a mile away at Lennox! We didn’t even know about it! The way we came and went
Did not go down Peachtree!
The food was good, we have a few things we always get! We know things will get back to usual!
That wasn’t the rub!
Left to go to car! Started to tip the valet! Mind you there was only about 5,6, cars!
He says that will be $3 ?? Are you kidding me! I would rather have given it to the kid?.
Might be a small thing but OVERSHADOWED the whole dinner!
Pano are you kidding me!

So happy to have this restaurant back open. The food was delicious, and there seemed to be maximum safety for the current conditions. The tables were far apart, all employees had masks, and there were bottles of sanitizer all over. Go and check this gem of a restaurant out!

A good job was done to enable social distancing to other guests, staff was wearing face masks.
Food was good as always, so a safe bet.
Stay safe all!

Food is no where near good, lemon drops on the other hand was. I always say there’s a first for everything. Dining here my very first time was also my last time.

Food was great as always. Our server however, was a rookie and it showed. The wine wasn’t served correctly and the removal of some items from the table was premature. She needs training.

There's something that just feels "right" about the Buckhead Diner. Whether it's the unique architecture of the building, or the great food and service, it's an excellent place to visit when in Atlanta.

We both had the fried chicken dinner special. It was nothing special and the chicken was greasy and not very hot. I was disappointed in the breading on the chicken—-it was really thick coating and with it not being very hot, it was a disappointing meal. The portion size was huge though!

The portion of pasta on the spaghetti & meatballs was very very small. The veal meatloaf was not seasoned & very tasteless. The only saving grace was the mashed potatoes. The blue cheese chips made us both so sick before bed. The dirty martinis were good & our server was very attentive.
