My family and I enjoyed another wonderfully memorable dinner with the good folks at Glen Ella Friday evening. It was my birthday so my girls took me to dinner. Outstanding meal.

Dined at the Glen Ella Restaurant for an anniversary celebration during the Christmas holidays. The historic inn was beautifully decorated and the meal was outstanding! Both entrees...trout and chicken...were beautifully presented with eye appealing sides...and so, so good! Our waiter was quite attentive and efficient and certainly helped to make for a delightful evening...we will definitely be back!

We had two meals in the restaurant during our stay at Glen-Ella Springs. The food was fantastic. My husband had the filet which melted in your mouth. I had the crab cakes. Don't leave without trying the risotto cake.

Worth the country drive to get here! Glen-Ella Springs is an amazing and historical dining experience and simply one of the best-hidden secrets in fine dining anywhere in North Georgia. The menu is second to none and the service (especially Mattie and Sherry) is 5-star quality as well. They can also host large parties and weddings and the atmosphere just... More

We continue to return to Glen Ella Springs Restaurant because the food is excellent. With fresh ingredients added to classic preparations, the items are delicious. The salmon dill corn chowder was the perfect start to a dinner before the fireplace. The shrimp and mussel pasta with a slightly citrus Alfredo sauce was outstanding. Will return again!

We stayed in the inn so we had breakfast here twice and loved the food. Breakfast was great, but the dinner was a true cut above. My wife and I both had the chicken, but I was able to sub out and get the yummy sweet potatoes. The service was exceptional as well. We appreciated our server Kelly's professional yet... More

My smokin' hot wife and I had a fabulous dinner last night at Glen Ella. We've enjoyed their fabulous food for 20 years and they never disappoint! We started with the Market Salad with goat cheese, candied walnuts and lemon poppyseed dressing. Simply perfect. For our entrees she had the Macamamia Entrusted Chicken and I had the Rack of Lamb....

Took my brother and his wife for dinner. They were so surprised to experience fine dining out in the woods with such beautiful views of the fall leaves. They loved the food and the atmosphere. When I want to take someone new to our area out for dinner I always chose Glen Ella. Wonderful evening had by all.
