My wife & I have been privileged to travel very extensively. Last night we have one of the best meals, if not the best ever at a restaurant, at Glen-Ella Springs Inn Restaurant in Clarksville, Georgia! I had Scottish salmon with sweet potato soufflé and fresh broccoli florets garnished with red bell peppers. The salmon was marvelous, perhaps perfect. The... More

5-STAR DINNER and 5-STAR SERVICE!!! Try the SHRIMP and RACK OF NEW ZEALAND LAMB. They also have a great FRENCH ONION SOUP!!! Worth the drive for dinner even if you are not staying overnight at the B&B.

We go to Glen-Ella four or five times a year. This is a great place for any special occasion. The drive to Glen-Ella makes it special with the short trip down a dirt road. When you get there you know it's special.

The restaurant does require reservations. We arrived early but we were seated anyway. Our waitress was pleasant and talkative. My wife order the grilled chicken with carrots. I requested the pecan trout with carrots also. The waitress brought bread for us to nibble on. The meal arrived in a timely manner. The food was fresh and delicious. The service was... More

We had dined here many times and the menu, wine, chef and staff are excellent. The trout and the lamb chops are my favorite. If you stay here breakfast is included. We have always had wonderful meals.

My husband an I stayed at the Inn for 3 days and enjoyed a scrumptious gourmet breakfast each day and also had a fabulous dinner in the restaurant. The food at Glen Ella is always perfectly prepared, unique and very memorable. We enjoyed each of our meals immensely and would highly recommend both the inn and the restaurant highly.

We had breakfast after spending the night and it was delicious! We were served inside the dining room, but many were seated al fresco overlooking the beautifully landscaped lawn and garden. Scrumptious blueberry pancakes, bacon, and fresh fruit were my personal favorites!

I would go more often, if the roads were paved. This is very good food, served well. Prices are high but worth it. The service not fast, but not too slow. I enjoy the place,very rustic. If I'm driving my ML I don't like going down gravel roads so much. The Northeast Georgia Mountains never disappoint. Nice place! Pasqually "The... More
