Sandwich was good and the service fast

Had lunch there. It is somewhat a small restaurant and I was surprised when my sandwich came with a bowl of tomato soup (is it their specialty or soup of the day, I don't know). I had the egg salad and it was good. A friend had a "bowl" of soup (in a load of bread, with center torn out)... read more

They ha ve some very good dishes here! I'm not an oyster person, but people rave about them here. It's kind of funky inside, but everyone is service-oriented, and the owner Lee is almost always present. The hosteses are almost all college students from the University of North GA, in town, and they seem consistently sweet and willing to help.... More

We love eating here on a weekend for lunch! The upstairs porch is a great place to eat lunch overlooking the activity on the square. The BBQ sandwiches and hotdogs are great and the potato salad is to die for. Great for a casual lunch outside!

We did not have the displeasure of actually sitting down to eat at the establishment. After waiting over an hour for an estimated 25 minute wait, we traveled up the narrow corridor to the splash guard counter top where orders are to be placed. Our group was examining the menu prior to order when presented with the fact that they... More

The food at the front porch is good and reasonably priced. The service is good. The porch is upstairs and looks over the square. It is shaded and doesn't have people and pets walking right by your table. We like a The Front Porch.

A quaint, upstairs little restaurant with several tables on the balcony directly overlooking the square. A comfortable and fun vantage point over some great lunch choices. The menu is limited, but the standard fare of sandwiches and sides are perfect for a quick, but relaxing luncheon. If you prefer view over ambiance, this is the place to eat during your... More

We were pleasantly surprised to find this 2d floor lunch spot with numerous tables lining the outside porch railing overlooking the square. In my opinion, the lunch items such as chicken salad and bratwurst with saurkrat were excellent for a small establishment such as this and appropriately priced. The also serve hot dogs and a few other lunch type items... More

The best time go is when the weather is nice and sit out on the upper deck and look out over the square. Very pleasant. I always order their chicken salad sandwich with chips and my husband gets BBQ. It's not fancy, but a nice little place to eat when just strolling around downtown. Great view with nice seating. Average... More

Very limited menu, too expensive for what you get. The hot dog was tough, sauerkraut was soft and tasted old ,Italian sausage sandwich came drowned in terrible canned spaghetti sauce, potato salad was most definitely right out of a can also. We took it back and exchanged for ice cream which tasted like it had been in the freezer for... More

Eat there every time I visit Dahlonega. Great view of the square. Old historic building that brings back memories.
