A-m-a-z-i-n-g!

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!

First restaurant ever that did everything with absolute perfection. After eating my Baked Brie, I was ready to cancel my entree and just eat more brie until they ran out. But the market salad came and I ate it's deliciousness in record time. Wife ordered the lamb and I the Beef Tenderloin so we could share each. The lamb might... More

You can't go wrong with this place! We were there for 4 days and everything that we had was good! Food always hot and fresh. The staff is wonderful and accommodating. There's even a cook book that they sell if you really enjoyed the food! I had to pick one up! Trust me, you won't be disappointed.

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.

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
