Predictable "local" buffet with the usual. Food was good. I especially liked the fried chicken. It seemed a little pricey for what was offered. The ambience is average, but it seemed clean enough. It has an accessible location and seems to be popular with locals.

Now before I start I only ate once off the buffet and it was good I did not experience any of the problems others have had. I have visited Dahlonega for at least the last 20 years and always passed Danny's but never ate there. The first time was a few months ago and there were 4 of us that... More

The breakfast is excellent. Ordered two eggs country ham, grits and hash browns. The country ham portion was huge and tasty! Coffee was good and flowing. Our waitress was a little bothered but the other ladies made up for her distraction. Overall very good and recommended for breakfast.

The place was clean and the young lady that greated us was frendly, but the food was not so good. It is buffett style or you can order from the menu. We chose to get the buffett. I had a fried chicken breast, mashed potatoes and gravy, lima beans, corn bread and strawbreey pie. The crust on the chicken was... More

After reading the other reviews, I should have tried breakfast. We went for dinner on a Thursday night. We ate from what they call "The Cafeteria Menu" I can only describe it as disgusting. Dry turkey, beef that didn't look like beef, instant mashed potatoes, canned grey green beans, canned peas. Our bill for 2 meals was over $30. I... More

We are new to the area and over the past couple of months we have been to Danny's for breakfast, lunch and dinner. We were pleased with breakfast and lunch, both hot off the grill. The cafeteria line at dinner left a lot to be desired. Everything was cold. Meat loaf, chicken tenders, rice, beans, corn bread, all cold. There... More

They were friendly, and the food wasn't bad, but it was nothing to write home about. I would have liked to try their breakfast, we we had lunch which had just been put out. Even so, by the time we were eating it, it was pretty much cold. Nothing was bad but overall just pretty much so-so. The all-you-can-eat salad... More

The wait staff was very friendly, and service was decent. The food left me wanting. The brown gravy tasted like it was made from boullion cubes, the grease used for the chicken fried steak tasted like it needed a change. Nothing special, reminded me of school cafeteria food.

Tons of cars and trucks are always parked out front of Danny's Restaurant, so we decided to give it a try. We weren't exactly sure what to do when we arrived, but the staff was very friendly and explained our choices to us.The atmosphere is friendly, but not fancy. Breakfast is served until 10:45 am , so we didn't get... More
