With limited dining choices in Cornelia we decided to give Fenders a try and we were delighted. The 50s atmosphere was a great retro experience complete with oldies music at a comfortable volume. The food was very good, prices were a great value, and service was pleasant. We recommend this place to anyone stopping overnight.

Nice classic diner, well worth the slight detour from the main road if you happen to be driving though. Sweet tomato fries and deep fried okra were exceptional, but everything was pretty good. Nice atmosphere. On Saturday night the place was packed.

I have eaten here many times in the past years. The atmosphere is family friendly and you get good service almost every time you visit. Would recommend to someone visiting. A good hometown restaurant for anyone looking for a reasonably priced meal.

My wife, a friend and I had lunch at Fenders not long ago. I really enjoyed the decor. Our food ranged from good to OK. Service was a little erratic. Since I tend to have high expectations until those expectations are dashed, I have to say I was a little disappointed with the quality of food. Fenders had been so... More

My old friend Pete just moved back to town and wanted to meet for breakfast. Fenders new breakfast was the obvious choice since 1. They never disappoint and 2. Pete was a regular before he moved away. As always, another fine Fenders dining experience!!! Thanks Brandon!

We have eaten breakfast and lunch here many times. Breakfast is good with lots of choices. They have a different lunch special every day and all that we have tried has been excellent. The 50's diner decor is a welcome change. If you are in the Cornelia area and need a place to eat, don't pass up Fenders Diner.

If you are looking for a very good place to have lunch I very highly recommend Fenders Diner. The food was very good, the portions were large, the service was very good. We got there about 12:15 and the place was almost full, but we were shown a seat right away. The place stayed full all through our meal,and our... More

I am a local and eat here at least once every month or so. I highly recommend the sweet potato soufflé (Thanksgiving in a bowl!), Watergate salad (featured in Southern Living's cookbook Off the Eaten Path) and turkey and dressing! My best advice; get there early! They close at 8 during the week and 9 on Saturdays.
