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!

Cute 50's diner - we went twice while staying at the river on vacation for breakfast. My husband loved the egg sandwich and French toast and once he got the pancakes. I thought it was good, but the omelette was too cooked for my liking (just the way my husband likes it), I loved the biscuit it was huge! The... More

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.
