Buckhead goes smoke-free

BELLEVUE, KY (FOX19) - Buckhead Mountain Grill in Bellevue is now smoke free.

Company officials said in a media release that they received overwhelming requests from their patrons, so they made the decision to go smoke free, effective April 5.

A smoking ban in Campbell County that would have required restaurants to go smoke free was repealed earlier this year.

"Even though the smoking ban was repealed, we have decided to listen to our guests and what they want," said Angela Jimenez, general manager at Buckhead. "The numbers were staggering in the data we collected and we believe it to be in the best interest of our guests and our business to take the leap and go smoke free."

Buckhead is located at 35 Fairfield Avenue at Bellevue's river front.
