I was extremely disappointed in management at this restaurant. A young waiter accidentally dropped a full martini on top of my friend's head. She was drenched! Accidents happen and she handled the situation gracefully, but we were left to clean up the mess by ourselves and it took approximately 10 minutes for the restaurant to bring a replacement drink.

We have actually eaten here quite a few times and have never been disappointed with the food nor the service. We went this past Friday for a gourmet dinner with paired wines and it was wonderful. We were very pleased with Chef Ryan's pairings and the flavoring of each course. Wonderful experience and look forward to another one soon! I... More

Excellent meal with a fantastic atmosphere. This is our "go-to" special dinner out restaurant. The food is good and the place just "feels good". I had a Squab appetizer that was fantastic! My chicken entree was a little dry, but the wonderful sauce made up for it. They were extremely busy, so I expect that the chicken had been held... More

Went to Lake Rabun Restaurant for a regional wine tasting dinner. Never been there before and what a joy. Very rustic, warm and casual. Warm fireplace, totally unpretentious . Although the restaurant was filled the atmosphere lead to a private evening with my partner. Wait staff well beyond exceptional knowledgeable attentive yet not intrusive. Dinner was totally inventive and included... More

We visited for an anniversary and had Sunday Brunch. The food was full of flavor and the portion sizes were just right. The service staff was very friendly and efficient and the hostess was exceptional. There is nothing they could have done better. We will return if were ever in the area again.
