Buckhead Bar and Grill is an old-fashioned steakhouse, serving up delicious USDA prime beef, fresh seafood, all-natural poultry, and creative culinary twists on classic southern staples. The chef relies on locally grown organic produce, all-natural grass-fed beef, and free-range lamb to prepare the multifaceted meats and vivacious vittles featured on the menu. Whet a rasping appetite with the fried fresh calamari ($13) or jumbo-lump crab cake ($13) before moving on to more substantial fishy fare, such as the panko-encrusted Norwegian salmon ($26). Carnivorous cravings get speared with Buckhead’s savory selection of steaks, made with USDA prime Black Angus beef, including the maytag blue cheese 8-ounce filet mignon ($38) or the pepper-encrusted 10-ounce sirloin ($29). Green-eating grazers can choose from the wedge or caesar salads ($10 each) or the fire-roasted vegetable medley ($12). A selection of homespun sides, including whipped garlic mashed potatoes, stone-ground grits, and lobster bisque create the perfect complement to any flattery-loving meal. Indulge squealing sweet teeth with desserts like crème brûlée ($6) or homemade red-velvet cake ($6) plucked fresh from the February red-velvet fields.

Thick brocade curtains, soft seating, and ornate chandeliers cosset diners in an elegant atmosphere at Marie Livingston's Steakhouse. In 1992, the restaurant's matriarch and namesake parlayed years of menu-making into opening her own eatery, which she still runs today with her two daughters. Her sweet Alabama twang and gracious hospitality float through the air as she works both the front and back of the house, greeting guests at the door and ensuring each steaming dish and housemade dessert represents her name well. A secret-recipe steak sauce coats her selection of USDA Choice steaks and chops, all grilled over an open flame rather than a flat pan or a Senate subcommittee. And accompanying each are fluffy, family-recipe yeast rolls that have kept a stable of regulars coming back for more.
In a building once thought by many in the industry to be unsuitable for a restaurant, elegance enfolds guests and proves naysayers wrong. An entryway with a dome of distressed silver leaf and a vintage red sofa opens onto a dining area enhanced underfoot by marble and hardwood floors, and overhead by bright-red drop lighting. Black and cream flow throughout, with dark baseboards and crown molding lining the light walls, and large curved booths leading the eye to a black granite bar.
