Saturday night surprise

During a girls shopping weekend, we asked a vendor about local favorite places for dinner. She recommended Yahoola Creek Grill. We arrived and found the atmosphere welcoming. They had a small seating area inside and a large covered area outside. We chose inside (just a flip of a coin). We were... read more

We actually pulled in to this shopping to turn around and go to another restaurant, but when we saw this place, we decided to give it a try. We had our 1 year old with us and the waitress was very helpful and patient. We ordered him the kids chicken tenders...a large portion and really good. Our meals were as... More

Decided this morning to take a little drive (2+ hours) and go to Dahlonega, GA. Checked the reviews and the menu before leaving. After doing a little shopping with my mom, we headed for Yahoola. Service was excellent!! Prices were good! And the food, well, the food was amazing!! We ordered the fried green tomatoes (my mom's favorite food and... More

We just left YCG and my wife and I were totally satisfied with our dining experience! :-) We started with Fried Green Tomatoes which were the best we have eaten. I had the grilled lamb chops with tomato herb rice and Lori had the fish tacos w/rice and beans. We were both delighted! Also, there sweet corn bread muffins were... More

The Yahoola Creek Grill had decent ratings on another site so we thought we'd give it a shot and were not disappointed. The brunch menu was not extensive but varied and the salmon benedict eggs were very good. Wait staff was very pleasant and professional and sitting on the porch in near 90 degree weather was still very pleasant. We... More

A co-worker and I had lunch at the Yahoola Creek Grill today. What a fabulous meal we had! I ordered the arugula salad with grilled tuna steak. I believe that it is one of the best restaurant meals available in Dahlonega. My co-worker ordered the Yahoola Creek Farmhouse Salad, and enjoyed that, too. They were large portions, but they were...

We haven't been to YCG since 2013 after a less than exciting experience. After hearing good things from others we decided to give it a second shot. Put quite simply, it's overpriced mediocre food that does its best to be fancy. The shrimp and grits was 5 shrimp with a few pieces of andouille on top of a grit cake... More

My wife and I are long time fans of Chef Rick, who recently returned to YCG. Maybe it was the party of dozens on the patio last night, or maybe things are still in transition in the kitchen. Whatever, our meal fell a little short. We both enjoyed the flavorful flatbread appetizer, and my wife said the quiche of the... More

I've eaten here twice with girlfriends and everything I've ordered has been wonderful. The fried green tomatoes are delicious as is the salad with the fig dressing. Last time I tried the chicken mac which apparantly is a favorite of the local college students. Try it and you will know why.

I stopped into the restaurant and for some reason a grilled cheese sandwich caught my attention. It is called an Inside Out Grilled Cheese. It has cheese on the outside and ham and I think some more cheese on the inside. It is then topped with a fried egg. This is by far the best grilled cheese sandwich I have... More
