Executive Chef in Residence

It is obvious there is in an executive chef in residence here in that the dishes are varied and unique. Reservations are recommended as seating is limited and this is probably the most gorgeous location for a restaurant on Lake Rabun.

We stayed two nights. Had dinner the 1st night at the hotel. We had read all the reviews and couldn't wait to try it. I had the Salmon and my husband had the Filet. Both were good, except my husbands potatoes were not cooked long enough, they were hard and the quinoa that was served with my Salmon was a... More

Sophisticated dining experience in a 1930's restored Hotel on Lake Rabun. Make reservations and try to schedule your visit to allow for at least one nite's lodging..

This little out of the way spot was a good find. Service was efficient and pleasant and the food was fresh and good. They were very busy and managed to work us in.

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. And... More

I apologize for the fact that you feel that the situation was not handled properly. Upon learning of the incident, the restaurant manager immediately brought another drink for your friend. The server who had spilled the drink offered napkins to dry up any spill, but neither the manager of the server noticed anyone being "drenched" or we would have certainly... More

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.
