  • Buckhead Diner - Atlanta, GA -  Insightful

    Reviews: 2

    The Disappointing Diner
    Insightful (2 reviews)
    1/15/2011

    Ate at the Buckhead Diner today for the first time in years and wish I hadn't. While the place was clean, it looked tired. The service is still good but avoid the valet parking (it takes too long). The food is mediocre at best and when price is taken into consideration, its a bad value. However, if you are part of the insecure Buckhead crowd that is more concerned with appearance than substance, this is the place for you.

    A Wonderful Motion Picture!

    The Buckhead Diner at 3073 Piedmont Road is truly an Atlanta icon that precisely represents the early American fountain cafés of the Art Deco era. From the stainless steel and lacquered wood to the geometric lighting and cubism floor, this restaurant accurately characterizes this opulent style with a great deal of attention to detail. The menu offers a wide selection of moderately priced entrées as well as "snacks," soups, salads, sandwiches, desserts, and classic fountains. Despite the typical one-hour wait at dinner time, the atmosphere offers a very entertaining method of passing the time especially for those individuals who enjoy people-watching. And in keeping with the true Art Deco flavor of the period, the crowd also seems to unfold in front of you much like a classic film noir or stylish Hollywood drama emphasizing moral ambiguity and sexual motivation with more than enough femmes fatales and narcissist men to last you a lifetime. Although the food and service are excellent once you are seated and I highly recommend any newcomer to try their "famous" homemade potato chips, everything takes a back seat to the value discovered in watching the actors who frequent this stage. And if that were not enough, I think most observers will be equally delighted to witness the great demonstrations of diversity in costumes that have been popularized on stages, screens, and peep-show booths in countless reincarnations. So, take a friend and enjoy the show!

    It is soooo hard to find a decent place for dinner after 10PM in this town, but the Buckhead Diner kitchen is open late. Very good food, wonderful service. I really like this place.

    This is a great place to go for a business meeting or a special occasion. When my parents are in town, my boyfriend and I take them here and they love it. The pretzel sandwich is to die for!

    A great place to get a great meal. Convenient location, excellent variety on the menu. Quick service and more food on a plate than you can eat atone sitting. Prices well within reason. Most excellent dessert selection. If you want a truly great meal, this is the place to go.

    Good Stuff

    I have had mixed luck eating in this restaurant. I love the food, and the atmosphere, for the most part, but have had really bad service a time or two. We went tonight and had a great server, she had a big smile and was very good. I could do without the enforced valet parking, but I know complaining about that is a lost cause.

    We waited one hour for a table, but the food was very good. I would call ahead next time to reduce the wait. Why don't they take reservations.

    Decent Diner

    This diner wasn't all it was cracked up to be. The service was speedy but the food was so-so. I wasn't impressed w/the menu b/c it was pretty boring and when it arrived the taste was blah. I'll give it another try soon and maybe I can adjust this review!
