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, but very simple things like opening a bottle of wine, understanding what the specials are, knowing the difference between gorgonzola and mushroom sauce are a huge struggle. I really want to come back, but the service knowledge HAS to improve. You have accomplished the tough part, which is the quality of the food. I would recommend a basic training of the wait staff on the easy things.

I was downtown Buford and craving real food for lunch. Picked up carry out for hubby and myself. Best burger ever, huge with bacon, sautéed onions, cheese. Also got Philly Cheese steak that was equally as good. I think each entree was around $10 and well worth it Will go back and try one of there lunch specials Seemed like a lovely place for a business or relaxing lunch

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.
