Get the Rack of Lamb!

Order the Rack of Lamb! All the other entrees are good. The Lamb is GREAT! Everything I had was wonderful and it is such a beautiful and historic Inn. I love driving on the dirt road to go out and have an elegant dinner out. Fantastic place to eat.

Everything was delicious! The beef tenderloin was tender, juicy and flavorful! The portion sizes were just right.

Glen-Ella Spring is hands-down the BEST restaurant in North Georgia. The food is always better than the time before... how is that possible? The atmosphere is somehow comfortable, yet elegant. The Macadamia Chicken is always our favorite, but I'm never disappointed when I try a new selection. The owners strive for nothing less than perfection.

Off the beaten path but well worth the trip. A beautiful setting that takes you down a country road to a peaceful setting surrounded by woods and green fields. The food and service is outstanding. We have eaten here several times and would recommend anything on the menu. We would suggest you book a night at the inn to truly... More

Glen-Ella Springs Inn and Meeting Place is a must-visit Northeast Georgia destination. Chef Bill Wilder works in concert with a great staff under the leadership of innkeepers Ed and Luci Kivett to create a memorable experience.

We stayed at the Inn and booked a Romantic Getaway Package which gave us a $70 credit for the restaurant each night. The first night I had the trout and my husband had the lamb. Mine was perfect and his was 'just ok'. Saturday night we both had the beef and it turned out to be one of the best... More

Great service, reasonable wine list. Filet was as good as you'd get in Buckhead! Cozy atmosphere. Fish was not as good as the beef - I'd stick with land creatures.
