I was at first reluctant to eat here after reading some of the reviews re service but glad I gave it a try. Don't pass it up. We were welcomed and seated quickly. Our server was Heather: all service attitude, knowledge, smiles, and recommendations when asked. The restaurant provides an attractive setting. My wife and I had the lamb chops... More

My husband and I stopped in one evening for dinner while passing through Cashiers.First off it is one of the most beautiful buildings I have ever seen. Though we didn't have a reservation we were very lucky to sit outside (would recommend one, they looked quite busy.) Our server was Rene or something like that, not really sure because she's... More

We ate at The Gamekeeper's Tavern last night. We had enjoyed a meal at the bar a year ago and were happy to revisit, but we were disappointed. The waitress, who didn't appear to have more than four or five tables to keep up with (and it was late enough in the evening that the place was not overly busy)... More

Once again The Gamekeepers Tavern proves itself to be the best restaurant in the Cashiers/Highlands area. The food, atmosphere, service, food, music, location and did I say food? Tonight we had the salmon, scallops, elk, shrimp and grits and trout dinners were perfect. The appetizers, fresh baked bread and outrageous desserts...delicious! We are a family of 5 and everyone was... More

Ate dinner at The Tavern this past Saturday night. We sat at the bar and really enjoyed the atmosphere. I had the catch of the day and it was very good. Everyone in our party liked their food, particularly the scallops. This place is a must visit if in Cashiers.

Food is top notch, for foodies and wine lovers. There is definitely a local game theme, and you will usually find local trout and an occasional exotic animal or two on the menu. Not everything is game and you can find steak, lamb, shrimp and other typical menu items as well. Everything is excellent, but personally the greek nachos are... More

After 5 minutes we asked the hostess if we had to serve ourselves from the coffee pot. She contacted our server and she finally pressed and poured the coffee.... More

Enjoyed dinner on the expansive porch on a lovely summer evening. The staff was friendly and the food was great. We has grilled Caesar salads (one with chicken, one with shrimp) and the pheasant. All were good portions, but not as large as one might expect. The dress code varied widely, ranging from families in jeans and flip flops to... More

We visited the restaurant on the Sunday evening after July 4th and found the food and service to be top notch. The cocktails were "pricey" - a Patron margarita was $13 (small glass). My husband and I both selected the scallop entrée and loved them. I asked to leave off the garlic mash and substituted the coleslaw (low carb diet... More

This restaurant has a locals special dinner of a burger and a beer where you are required to sit in the bar area and not on the lovely patio. That brought with it sarcastic comments from an overly snooty waiter, and poor unfriendly service. We were there to check out this restaurant for a large family reunion and made the... More
