Glen-Ella Springs Inn Restaurant

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.

Excellent food with knowledgeable service staff in a lovely old inn setting. We have witnessed garden weddings that could grace the pages of Southern Living. Always ask for the dessert offerings. Well worth the extra calories.

We had a dinner with our daughter there last night. We were greeted upon our arrival by the front desk. We opted to sit in the covered out door area. Ceiling fans were on and provided a perfect climate. The waitress (Hannah) did a super job in serving our table. The property is so well kept, in that, your eyes... More

Always consistent in serving fresh and delicious food in a warm and comfortable atmosphere. Glen Ella is our favorite local dining experience and the trout never disappoints...no matter how many times I order it.

My wife and I decided to stay put at the inn our first night ion the mountains and we were not disappointed at all. We had wonderful chowder and fresh fish dishes for dinner right next to a beautiful herb garden. The price was about half of what you would pay for the same in the city!

We had two wonderful nights at Glenn-Ella in June. My favorite meal is breakfast and this restaurant did not disappoint. Wonderfully presented and so fresh. I loved the breakfast casserole. Dinner was great, too. I had lump crab cakes with green beans and sweet potato. Delicious.
