Sophisticated menu with unpretentious prices

This is a visually-beautiful restaurant right next to the Holly Theater just off the main square in Dahlonaga. We ate in the outdoor area behind the restaurant. The menu is ambitious and sophisticated, but the prices are surprisingly reasonable. I enjoyed the duck, while my spouse enjoyed the... read more

We enjoyed the quaint downtown atmosphere and opted for the dining room instead of the patio seating. Service was good considering the downtown was busy.The salads were fresh, colorful and tasty. It is a place we will visit again.

This is a sweet offbeat and friendly place. And it's right in town, just 4 doors off the square. The wine selection (by the glass) is rather limited, but certainly adequate. Small town, small establishment. I've been twice, once recently, and once a year earlier. Lunch with wine. I found the menu overly fru fru, overly complicated ingredients. And nothing... More

We always eat at The Corkscrew Cafe at least once when we visit Dahlonega. The Pecan Crusted Pork Chop is too die for and there are no words to describe the Banana Chiffon Pie! Can't wait for oour next visit in October!!

We eat here frequently while visiting Dahlonega. This is a nicer restaurant. It's great for a special occasion. Excellent brunch. Outdoor seating. Good wine selection. Salads, steaks and fish are great but the creamed spinach is my favorite.

Our family had lunch during a brief visit to Dahlonega. We happened upon Corkscrew at lunchtime. We all had excellent dishes, and the service was perfect. We would come back again for lunch or dinner.

We were in Dahlonega for a family wedding and stumbled upon the Corkscrew when we couldn't find where we were staying (one of the Dahlonega Square Villas). The owner came outside with my husband and pointed the way to the hotel. We came back for dinner which was outstanding (I had the celery root puree to die for with a... More

We were regular patrons of the Corkscrew until the end of 2014 when the menu yand staff seemed to come unglued. We had heard that there was new management and a new menu so we thought it deserved a try. We tried the tomato bisque and the pretzel, both were very good. When we ordered $32 ribeye steaks we were... More
