Bare Bones Steakhouse
Featuring PRIME RIB in addition to our regular menu.
Bare Bones is a classic steakhouse. We are located in the Bona Allen building in downtown Buford, Ga. You will experience the feel of the old saddlery and harness making shops that once occupied this space. We have a traditional restaurant and bar and also offer a comfortable lounge and additional space.
Fri, Sat 4:00 pm–10:00 pm
Sun 4:00 pm–9:00 pm
Best steak ever!!!
Excellent food and service! Even though the prices are high, the food was well worth it. Made reservations and was seated right away when we got there. Our waiter was fantastic and the wait time for our meals was fairly quick considering how busy they were. It was quite loud in the restaurant, but that was no fault of the restaurant. They had large groups seated around us and that contributed to all the noise. All around a great restaurant and would definitely recommend going there.
Bare Bones never fails to disappoint. We went for my husbands birthday and everything was perfect, as always. Amanda, Our server, took excellent care of us. We celebrate all of our special occasions here — it’s one of our favorite places to eat.
Great place. Very good food. Awesome atmosphere. Incredible steaks.
Food and service were outstanding. We went there two days in a row. The first night was at a company function sponsored by my wife work. The second night was with friends. The downside is that my wife has Celiac disease which we advised the waiter. She got sick both days
We love Bare Bones! Best steak around!
This restaurant is always on point!
Great food, great service, I highly recommend this restaurant.
This was my 2nd visit. Learning from the first time, I made reservations which in this case was for 2.
It was a special occasion for a close friend: was looking forward to a great meal and talk as it may be a very long time until I get to come here again- and with this person for that matter. The meal was great- the talk, not so much.
We were seated at a simple table in the middle of the room, among huge tables with large groups of cheerful patrons speaking loudly. When we were presented with this table- we politely asked for a booth (they have large and small ones..). We were advised that booths are for 3 or more (which seemed strange as we just passed small booths with just couples in each..).
We deliciously ate ourselves into oblivion, but it was very annoying to not have any personal space and ability to talk (which was a point of our get together). We couldn't have any conversation at all. The service was very good- however it was just among many different persons.
The steak of the day is a good value (in relation to the general cost of a meal here): you get a steak and 2 sides for $29. Beyond that, it is ala carte. However, when spending $35 for a prime T-Bone is it REALLY too much to expect a single side dish with it? I know this place is not Longhorn, but c'mon.
Looking forward to another visit at some point and highly recommend the place for a special occasion.
Birthday dinner for our son. Paid for desserts and then got a free one for our son’s birthday. Not sure why the server didn’t tell us about that prior to ordering one.
Never disappointed in Bare Bones. Excellent service always, superbly cooked and great value.
Best steaks we have ever tasted! Service was impeccable. Great for special occasions.
Exceptional service, friendly staff and amazing food. Will definitely come back.
Birthday dinner and it was grear
Great Steak!! Had the ribeye and it was cooked to perfection. Pimento Cheese appetizer was the bomb! Had the fried okra and r topped sweet potatoes as shareable sides. Our server was very attentive and on spot to meet our every need.
Although it is a little pricey, the experience is worth it. It is one of the best restaurants to eat a great steak in Northern Georgia.
Food was really good and our waitress was spot on in her service. Great little find in downtown Buford.
The food is always exceptional!! As well as the service. It is a favorite of ours!!
Love this place!! Have gone a lot!! Love this place!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Enjoyed the Sunday dinner. Lamb chops are great. My wife loved her steak, it was cooked just right.
Incredible food, and the best service we have had in a long time. Great dining experience!!
Food and service are always great here. We celebrated a Christmas party at Bare Bones. Wait staff was super friendly and offered great suggestions.
Love this restaurant! Great food and service. Thoroughly enjoyed our meal!
We really like to go there!
Best steak ever! Service was great! Will definitely be back.
Birthdays for three of the four in our party! Excellent service!! Georgia/Alabama game was on...the reason for the noise level being a little louder than normal.
Food was fantastic and atmosphere was vibrant
This was our first experience at Bare Bones. Our food was absolutely to die for and delicious! We highly recommend this restaurant. We will be back and hopefully will make this our restaurant for special occasions, date nights and celebrations.
We have been to Barebones a number of times. The food, service and atmosphere are all outstanding. You cannot a better place for dinner.
The food was creative and exquisite. The onion rings with the honey drizzle, red pepper flakes and grana cheese- indescribably delicious. Steaks seared to perfection with cool red center and tender enough for a butter knife. Chopped kale Caesar salad so original and delicious. You can tell everything is made fresh. Oh and the desserts! Banana foster with crem brûlée crackle and brown sugar ice cream! Seriously? Too good for words. Excellent wine selection and our servers were so knowledgeable about the winds to help us make the best choices .
great food cooked to my spec. great wait staff. definitely not inexpensive, but worth the price.
Wife and I went for our anniversary and it was nothing short of outstanding. As usual, the food and steaks were cooked to perfection. The service was top notch. After finding out it was our anniversary, they gave us free desert with our meal and to take home as well.
Looking forward to going back very soon.
Great food and service! Best prime rib and their steaks are fantastic! Love the side options too.
Good service, steaks were perfectly cooked. Fast service. Will definitely be back again. My new favorite restaurants...
Went to celebrate a birthday. I ordered Prime Bone in NY Strip medium rare for $39.
I could not eat most of steak because it was filled with white cords and gristle. I could not chew most of it.
I showed waitress Amanda parts I could not chew. She said she was sorry. Also, I ordered $8 wedge salad. It was delivered as a pile of lettuce covered with dressing. I could hardly see the lettuce. It was not a normal wedge of lettuce. Also, I did not order my steak blackened, it was delivered blackened on both sides. My wife ordered the Prime NY strip steak medium. It was OK, she said.

Great food and great service made for a great evening for my wife's 50th Birthday celebration with our family.
If it were not for the gift cards we received, we probably would have never tried this restaurant because of having to purchase your items individually. My husband and I ended up ordering the steak of the day plate thinking it was a NY strip so it couldn't be that bad. The steak had little to no flavor and was not tender like you would expect a NY strip to be. The asparagus was bland, but the desserts were phenomenal. We will probably not eat here again.
Great meal with wonderful service.
Great food , excellent staff as always
Food was good as well as service. I would say the price of drinks was a little steep compared to most places for a basic bourbon drink.
