The food and atmosphere were good. Service was so/so, but were with a group of 30 people. Not a real example of normal service

I recommend Buckheads very highly. I have been there on multiple occasion including celebrating a birthday, new years eve early dinner, and dinner before events. The cheese boulder appetizer is great. I have never had a bad dinner or anything but superior service. I would never hesitate to go or to recommend going for a snack or dinner.

We met with friends before game and the service was great. Had a great view of the river and fast seating. I see why you call ahead for a crowd. The food was great no plate went back. Rolls were good and food came out quick for Saturday. Will return. PS. I do not give 5 stars out very often.

Went last night for local fundraiser, made RSVP'S for 6pm. Seated right away with perfect view of Ohio River. Service was prompt and professional. Our waitress took food orders right at table on a tablet ( to cool), bread (hot and delicious) and salads right out followed by (my order) ribs! Yummy! Managers also keep an eye on the area... More

Our family had dinner here while in town for the weekend and we all really enjoyed the place and the food. We would definitely eat here again when we are back in the area.

Not happy with my dinner. Loved the view. Service was fine. Would go again but just get a hamburger. The grilled white fish was awful. Almost like it wasn't cooked enough. The others with me liked their food but there was so much food no one could eat it all. Not a bad thing

Great go-to place for a quick and tasty lunch. Plenty of free parking available. The buffalo chili is always delicious. Can't beat the view too!

Went here for a quick meal. The prices on the menu are reasonable and come with large portions. Very good service. This is in a great location right next to the river. I went in January and it was cold outside. I can't wait to go back in the summer when the outdoor patio is open.

We both ate the chicken on rice. It was a great dinner and highly suggest it. The appetizer was the chips and queso.
