You certainly get what you pay for at Buckhead Grill and Bar. The atmosphere is intimate, the food delectable, and the service outstanding. The dim lighting off set by the gentle glow of tea-light candles and the hunting lodge motif create a warm, relaxing place to dine. The menu was top dollar, with an acceptable selection of dishes. My steak was cooked to perfection (which is sometimes hard for a restaurant to do when you order "medium well") and melted in my mouth! The steamed veggies I ordered as a side were great also, not too crisp and not to limp. (Sometimes you order "steamed" and what they really mean is "death by sauna") The complimentary bread and, what appeared to be freshly whipped, butter were a meal in and of themselves and hard to push away! Our waiter was careful, attentive, and respectful. Our food arrived piping hot and our glasses were never empty. He also suggested a number of movies and things to do in the area before we departed. (All this on a holiday weekend!) This is a great restaurant to take that special someone for Valentine' Day, an anniversary, or to just have a romantic, peaceful dinner.
Great Staff Great Restaurant My fiancee and I have eaten here for special occasions many times. The staff is excellent and really make you feel at home. The meal was so good. The last time we were there, my fiancee and I were the last ones in the restaurant and the staff encouraged us to take our time, drinking our bottle of wine, and eating our dessert, instead of rushing us out the door. We never got any feeling that as soon as we left they would be closing up, although we knew it to be true. A true gem of an establishment. This is by far my favorite place to go in Columbus!!
We were here a little over a year ago, when going to my son's graduation from boot camp at Ft. Benning. We'd heard from locals it was good, if catfish & good down home southern cookin' was what we were after (it was). We got back here late one night after dropping my son off, and they were about to close. They graciously let us in and served us a DELICIOUS meal! The hushpuppies were to DIE for - we even took some back to the hotel and ate them cold w/coffee for breakfast. Truly THEE BEST meal I had the entire 4 days we were in Columbus!
