We went on a Sunday around noon. We walked in and was immediately greeted. We sat on the deck. It was a beautiful view of the river and Cincinnati. Service was great and our meal came out quickly.

We had a table by the window with a nice view. Our service was great and so was the food. We stuck around after dinner and had a few drinks while enjoying the view. This is a place we will be back to.

The staff were friendly and the place was packed. Ordered our food and got it to go. The chicken tenders and the chicken Monterey was the best ever. I had a sweet potatoe it was so good. it was within walking distance from our hotel so it was convenient to take it back to the hotel and relax.

Food and service were just adequate. The Greater Cincinnati area is becoming a foodie Mecca but the new dawn has not shined its light on Buckhead yet. It is good down home American fare, but you won't impress your out of town visitors. Make reservations and ask for window table or deck, if the weather is warm enough. At the... More

I always love going to Buckhead Mountain Grill but today the service was awful. We waited to 2:00 to go to lunch after the lunch crowd was gone. It was still crowded but most of the people were outside, so we asked to be seated inside. We got seated right away and was seated by a window which we wanted.... More

The food is always excellent and the service is always good to great. We really enjoy the outside seating but sometimes it's so crowded that option is not available. Not an everyday kind of place, we reserve it for special dinners.

Visited here with coworkers for lunch. Our group of 7 was seated quickly & our meals were served promptly. All of the chicken dishes & burgers were devoured by all. The rolls w/cinnamon butter were a hit, but save the calories and skip the mac & cheese. The green beans were delicious.

Although we were seated right away, the service was very slow and took 20 minutes to be served drinks. It took even longer to get our appetizers and main meal. The whole ordeal took three hours for hamburgers! Would you believe they only serve well done hamburgers and steak. If you like any pink in your meat, forget it!

Thank you, Joan, for your feedback. I'm glad to hear that our service was prompt as you came in but I'm disappointed to hear the rest of the meal was unsatisfactory as this is not our standard. We will address your visit to our staff to re-iterate the importance of the quality service we strive to provide. Thank you again... More

Between the group, we ordered the salmon (excellent), chicken tenders ( white meat, huge portion), fried cod (good) and meatloaf (good). The sides we ordered were: mac n cheese (good), brocolli (excellent, fresh and not overdone), baked potato (good), and lima beans (awful - gooey sauce and tasteless lima beans), and creamed spinach (really awful, swimming in what appeared and...

You can't beat the view, especially on a bright, sunny fall day! The food is good, standard fare, and the atmosphere is warm and friendly.
