Dined at Adam's pre-theater. There were 8 of us. Our waiter was Sean (Shaun?) and he was fun, irreverent and enjoyable and excellent. Our drinks, food, and service were top notch in spite of a very busy evening at the restaurant. (Like I mean 32 prom goers near us & every other table in the place occupied). Our dinners included...

I have been to Adams several times and I would rate the food as very good. The service really struggles. This is perplexing because I love the atmosphere, food quality, and selection. The last two times I brought clients there with the expectations service would improve, and we were again dissapointed. Everyone loved the food, and the staff is attentive,... More

I recommend Adam's for the cuisine, excellent. But, also, the staff is super! They are attractive, kind and competent. The piano and singing on the weekends is a good addition to a nice night out.

I met some friends here and the food was amazing! I loved the filet! Cooked perfect! The singer was just so, so. Food was a bit pricey, so would go back for special occasion.

Pricey for food offerings. Claims to be fine dining but food is just OK. Nice atmosphere in downtown Buford.

We ate at Adam's for the first time on Valentine's Day. With our OpenTable reservation, we walked right in and were promptly seated by the front window. It was a nice view, being able to watch the hustle and bustle of downtown Buford (lol), but we didn't see much more of the restaurant because this section is separated from the... More

We enjoyed most of our food choices for dinner which included salmon and sword fish. The salmon was fresh and the sauce was very good. The sword fish also tasted fresh, but when we ordered it "blackened", we meant blackened seasoning and not burn it on all four sides making it the color black. You would think a chef in... More

This came highly recommended so we decided to celebrate my husband's birthday dinner. The staff handled the birthday terrifically. Our server Steve was a pro; attentive and informative. The salads were good as were the appetizers . The filet and the rack of lamb scored high . Unfortunately my sea bass had lots of bones and was saturated with butter... More

We visited the restaurant with a 9PM reservation for the $75 per person New Year's Eve dinner.
