The best in north georgia in my opinion. It has been excellent everytime I've been there. My wife and I love it. Great food and atmosphere! Its an unforgettable experience. Down a dirt road, it appears to to be in the middle of nowhere. They also welcome you to explore the grounds even if you are not staying the night... More

Both dinner and breakfast offered nice choices, so everyone was able to find something they liked. I'm a big breakfast fan, so I wish there were some more egg options on the menu, but it was nice to be served a hot breakfast.

Wasn't quite sure we were on the right path trying to find this place, but it was worth the adventure! A beautiful setting with fabulous food, great service and good wine. I highly recommend sitting outside on the patio to dine so you can enjoy the beautiful yard and gardens. Follow the directions on the website, DON'T use your GPS.... More

Just got back from Georgia and tried Glen-Ella Springs for the first time. It was highly recommended by a fellow golfer I met in Clarkesville. I was pleasantly surprised at the selection offered; really gourmet style. The atmosphere left me a little disappointed as the place was a bit dark, woody and no "spectacular" mountain view, which I expected. All... More

Great meal This was our first visit - we will definitely return and would highly recommend anyone go. Our entire evening was faultless and the meal outstanding. My husband and I both had a 3 course meal and he had a glass of wine $85 total, this was well worth it. Excellent ambiance inside, table clothed tables, cloth napkins, fresh... More

Every meal we ate here (3 breakfasts and 2 dinners) was delicious and well prepared. It is a small, intimate type of restaurant with a limited menu, on the expensive side. The rack of lamb especially comes to mind, very tender so it just melts in your mouth. So expect the best, you won't be disappointed!

Our dinner was good, but I had expected a little better because of all the good reviews. The Inn is charming, a lovely setting. The dining room was very nice, and quiet! Our caesar salads were boring, then a lovely little sorbet came as a palate cleanser. My entree was the monkfish, but the tempura coating was limp and soggy.... More

I couldn't have asked for a better pre-Mother's Day dinner experience for my Mom. The food was impeccable, the ambiance was spot on and the staff were all very courteous and made my Mother feel like she was a dignitary!!! Thank you Chef and thank you Glen-Ella!!!
