Went to LRH for our 25th anniversary, and to check out the new chef. We were delighted to be served by Josh, former manager of the restaurant, who is back helping out in the transition. Josh always adds to the dining experience, which should always be the case with fine dining. And the food...oh wow! Chef Ryan is an excellent... More

Only one and a half hours form Atlanta but seems far away. Beautiful rustic setting and wonderful food. Have been many times and I am always surprised by the inventive , tasty menu. You can't go wrong with any choice here. Lovely brunch on Sunday and located near beautiful drives around Lake Rabun.

Totally understand why this place is always booked. The food is excellent and the restaurant's charm makes you want to keep coming back for more.

The peach Martini was as good as it can get. The entrees were ok but the sautéed spinach was not to had unless you ordered the vegetable plate. No figure! The service was good and even the water boy got tipped. He was outstanding. The desserts were all made with fresh goodies and can't be beat. Very busy place!

I recently dined at the Lake Rabun Hotel Restaurant with my family. We were seated promptly by a very friendly young hostess and our waiter was prompt and courteous. The food was excellent and the atmosphere of the place was amazing. However, during the course of our meal, I noticed the floor manager outright ignoring the needs of tables, including... More

Wonderful food, great location. Not too many choices but this restaurant would stand out most anywhere. Casual, but elegant, dinning. The sunday brunch is fabulous.

We ordered watermelon and cucumber gaxpacho shrimp cocktail and delicious smoked trout bruschetta! Our entrees were Braised beef brisket with... More

This review is of the restaurant, not of the hotel itself. The setting of the old hotel for this restaurant is unique and pleasant. The patio is particularly enjoyable. The food is excellent, but pricing is expensive, particularly when compared with other restaurants in Lakemont and Clayton. The only true disappointment is that there are NO vegetarian options on the... More
