Rustuc finery in a beautiful mountian Valley

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.

Can't say enough great things about Glen-Ella. Love visiting the restaurant and the grounds. Wish I had know about this place 12 years ago when I got married. Best food, great service and you might just run into someone famous. We did our last visit there.

Top-notch food, top-notch service, and atmosphere to die for! Ordered the lamb and it was out of this world. Sit outside and look at the English gardens and sip amazing wine. A truly classy experience!
