Fabulous food but waiting for the kitchen to prepare it was long.

Delicious! I had the crabcake sandwich and homemade sweet potato fries. I'll definitely give them another try!

Went with a large party and was not at all impressed. Two people got their meals a good 7-10 minutes after the others were served. One meal was lukewarm. Nobody was thrilled with their meal. Service left much to be desired. I'm struggle v to find something good to say and have nothing to offer other than my Mac and... More

My family came here on a quiet day for lunch. There were two other tables occupied. We were seated right away by our waiter, a little before 2:00, and ordered our food by 2:00. We all ordered simple sandwich meals. When we asked for French fries, we were told they weren't currently serving French fries that week. We all decided... More

My husband and I had brunch here recently. The restaurant was so cold, I was uncomfortable throughout the meal. I understand that this is a vintage building and would expect it to be drafty, but it was freezing! Other than the temperature, the atmosphere is good. Our waitress, while friendly, was absent throughout our meal. Periodically, someone else would come... More

A group of women friends went here for lunch. The waitress was. Sweet, but the food was horrible. Barely warm, salty, vegetable soup and a burned grilled cheese with cheese that was tasteless. I think stick to this as a music venue.

We loved this dinner and music venue on our last trip but to our disappointment it was closed for repairs to the building this time. It seems that they rented the place out to a college group who had a large party inside which included jumping and dancing which damaged the structural integrity of the floor in the main room....

The music is the draw here, understandably so. As the food and service leave so much to be desired. We wanted a memorable anniversary dinner, and prepaid for seating earlier on a Saturday afternoon for that evenings performance. The one man acoustic act was good (can't recall his name) but everything else paled in comparison. First, the seating is awkward,... More

Went to see Roxie Watson in concert which was wonderful. I ordered steak and bake potato. Steak was very fatty but cooked the way I wanted it. My baked potato wouldn't even melt my butter or cheese it was so cold. Then I ordered a mix drink. It was $8 and was barely in a glass not much bigger than... More

We live in Dahlonega and love stopping by Crimson Moon to see who is playing. The venue is small and personable. I can get rather loud depending on the music style (everything from blues, folk, bluegrass, country, jazz). The food is a little pricy but worth it for the added entertainment. We especially like the homemade biscuits and gravy on... More

Heard some great music here. This is a very intimate setting, where visitors are encouraged to sit and listen to the artists without a lot of talking. Of course you can talk quietly and interact with the artists, but when you order food and drinks, it is expected that you respect other people's listening experience by being quiet. Good Beer...
