Slightly off last night but we'll be back

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... read 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

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

Invited friends to lunch at Yahoola. The menu had a nice selection of choices. The burger with fried green tomato and pimento cheese was yummy, plenty of food with leftover. Nice apps, goat cheese tart was very tasty. We enjoyed the apple and cherry pie, homemade at it's best. Next trip, soon.

My husband and I went here on a rainy weekday night. The service was okay. When we looked at the menu and saw that a chef and sous chef were listed our expectations went higher. The prices were above average but we thought if it is of good caliber- why not! My husband ordered the vegetable pasta. He complained that... More

My family was in recenly with some very picky eaters. Laura was patient and knowledgeable about the menu. She was able to adjust a few items, so that my kids were happy. She also recimened the Chocolate torte...and I do too!

We had an excellent lunch there one day. My salad with a fig vinaigrette was particularly tasty. Location is a little ways out of town so not as convenient for dinner if you are staying in town and like to walk.
