We stopped in in the late afternoon to get appetizers and wound up filling ourselves with one of everything. They were all great, but the tuna app was amazing! Service was fantastic, too. She did a good job pairing wines and was über friendly. It's nice to feel wanted.

We have dined at Corkscrew Café on previous vacations to Georgia so we were anxious to bring our Colorado friends and try the Sunday Brunch. Our meal was outstanding, as was our server, Sydney. Sydney timed our appetizers and entrees perfectly to hit the 12:30pm threshold for champagne on Sundays. (Yes, there are blue laws here!) I could go on... More

We sat on the covered patio area and had a good bottle of wine and a great steak. The live entertainment was a fun addition to our meal and the staff were friendly.

We were hiking in the north GA mountains and stumbled on this little gem!! The food was excellent, the staff was incredibly friendly, and the wine was outstanding! They have a Bordeaux that I loved!! Can't wait to go back!

I was most impressed with the friendly attentive service of such excellent food. Everything was absolutely top notch. I frequently eat at the Corkscrew Cafe when I'm in the Dahlonega area. Love their onion soup, and they can make magic with portobello mushrooms.

We arrived at 5 PM without a reservation and were told we had to sit downstairs in the climate controlled exterior facility. The reason was there was a show at the theater next-door that started at nine it seemed odd that we couldn't dine and be out of there prior to the reservations coming in but that was fine The...

The Chef is back and he is amazing. Went to a wine pairing and was SO delighted that this young man has returned. The food is very tasty and the wines are delightful. The resturant is small but the service is remarkable. You will enjoy.

Food, service , wine selection was perfect! We try to eat here every time we visit Dahlonega. Convenient to our hotel, less than a block. I had the yellow fin tuna and wife had fillet mignon ....both cooked perfectly!
