buckhead diner An Atlanta Icon CELEBRATING 30 YEARS

Time is not measured by clocks, but by moments.
"An American dining experience unlike any other, Buckhead Diner is truly an Atlanta classic. Join us where diner meets fine dining, with inventive and long-time favorite menu items, snappy service and retro style."


Walking into Buckhead Diner is like taking a nostalgic and whimsical step back in time. It's an iconic diner and true Atlanta staple, yet it's so much more.

Warm Blue Cheese Chips & Cocktail

From whimsical cocktails to tasty appetizers, such as their Warm Blue Cheese Chips made famous in 1987, Buckhead Diner is a must visit in Atlanta.

Sweet Heat Thai Chili Calamari

Another house favorite appetizer is the Sweet Heat Thai Chili Calamari highlighting roasted peanuts, red & yellow peppers, and topped with scallions.

If seafood is calling your name a solid bet is Buckhead Diner's Jumbo Lump Crab Cake filled with huge lumps of fresh crab, drizzled with lemon grain mustard butter sauce, and topped with house-made vinegar chips.

Hangar Steak with Fries

For the carnivores, nothing hits the spot quite like the Hangar Steak with Fries, char-grilled and served with maitre d' butter, & french fries.

Chili Spiced Mahi Mahi

For the seafood lover in you, we highly recommend the Chili Spiced Mahi Mahi with the seriously addictive smoked tomato grits, and fresh Hass avocado guacamole.

The best part of a classic diner experience is always dessert! The Creme Fraiche Coffee Cake with house-made Cinnamon Ice Cream is delighful.

Buckhead Diner is also pleased to feature their James Beard Award Winning White Chocolate Banana Cream Pie.

Clearly, we're not the only ones showing love to this Buckhead gem.
