We were looking for a fun and easy lunchtime and Fender's Diner delivered! Fun music, great atmosphere, friendly staff, and yummy food! A little piece of America that makes you feel good and fills your belly! Both jkids (7 & 4) give it two thumbs up!! Get off the highway, forget the strip malls and boring food, and enjoy this...

After a family fun day in north Georgia, we dropped back in time to dine at Fender's Diner. A cool blast to the past upon entry to this classic eatery. There's memorabilia galore about ranging from pedal cars to telephone booths to hubcaps. You'll show your age if you remember have the items on display. The food is very good... More

Mom and Grandma must have been in the kitchen cooking up yummy dishes to satisfy my need for comfort food. Fun atmosphere, great service, delicious food.

This 50's themed diner has great food, including burgers, sandwiches, and also has southern favorites like turkey and dressing and meatloaf. The staff are friendly and fast. The restaurant is neat and clean and the 50's decor is charming. You can even order a REAL cherry or vanilla coke, if you like that kind of stuff. Good prices, good service,... More

This place doesn't just have good food . . . it's also a great experience where you feel like you're stepping back in time. The music really makes for a fun atmosphere as does the great decorations and powder blue color on the walls. My family members all enjoyed their food, including a Reuben sandwich, a chicken fried steak sandwich,... More

Home cooking. Everything is fresh made even the pies and cakes. Price for 2 was $20 with a desert. If you are headed to Gatlinburg on 441 it is one of the only food places so I would stop if I were you. Only a short drive from Hwy 441.

This is a very satisfying restaurant to visit. The decor is 50's styled and interesting to view. The staff and owners are great. They are popular and busy but consistently good. I've eaten most of their menu items and have never been disappointed. This place is a winner, you cannot go wrong.

A busy place usually means folks enjoy it, and that is why it is so busy! Good food, good service, very nice owners, all make for a good experience. Not really much going on in downtown Cornelia unfortunately, but Fender's is worth a venture over to the downtown area if you are around.

Fenders is 1950s motif diner located in in downtown Cornelia, about a block off old hwy 441. The place is scrupulously clean with a simple menu of 1950s diner fare. Food was excellent, the decor is interesting and the original pressed tin ceilings alone are worth the stop. Give them a try, you'll be glad you did!
