Hi Shirley, Just wanted to correct the misunderstanding Ellijay Deli is not the Back Porch Bistro. Ellijay Deli has moved from their original location in Downtown Ellijay. We are now located in East Ellijay on Craig Street. Back Porch Bistro did move into our old location on the square on Ellijay. You are correct their food is delicious and they... More

I am in love with their "east town" sandwich (chicken salad)! Extremely Friendly staff, helpful and great experience every time! They focus on the quality of their service, so although the atmosphere isn't anything "wowing", that wow factor is found in the good food…every time!

Friendly service. Tasty sandwiches with high quality ingredients. Chicken salad was all white meat and the homemade sandwich bread melted in your mouth. Very fresh! We both had the homemade broccoli cheddar soup and it was hearty and full of flavor. We will be back!

Great sandwiches. Ice cream in season. Go often and the read your mind so you don't even have to order. Cool quirky deco.

They have good homemade bread. The chicken salad is like I would make at home but much easier for me :) The Chili dog is great, the recipe is from a Ellijay Legand "The Pool Room". Very nice Staff & Owner.

Recent health score 91. This is a small "hole in the wall" located in back of an antiques shop on the town square (the deli can also be entered from the rear). It's open for breakfast and lunch. Lunch is built around soups and subs. They also have hot dogs and some baked goods. Ordering is at the counter. The... More

Great food and reasonable prices. The service was OK, but the atmosphere was just charming. It is a great place to pick up some sandwiches before hitting the State Park.

Everything was homemade here: the bread, the chicken salad, the tuna salad. It was just a cute, small town deli with a friendly and charming staff.

Great sandwich place in the back of an "antique" store on the roundabout in Ellijay. All the sandwiches are named for local areas of the county. Hard to decide which is the best. I personally like "The Mountaintown" the best. They have just added more seating.
