Small Town, Small Restaurant, Big Surprise!

Visiting this little town off Lake Chatuge, which spans from North Caroline down into Georgia, we found this little place on our GPS when we were looking for ice cream places. We found much more!

This small joint has the worst food in Hayesville. It bills itself as serving a great hamburger. The burger tastesd as though it was a frozen sauteed patty. The toppings were not fresh. The owner has a lot of personality and is very pleasant. Service was excellent. There are a lot of fun things to browse through. Go for a... More

Never ate a meal here but the ice cream is great. A little slow in the customer service end, but very friendly. When visiting again, I will stop for ice cream.

This was the best and cleanest place I've ever been to.. They had a 100% satiation rating and had great food at reasonable prices.. Sheila's chocolate chip cookie Brownies are awesome.. Her male server Joe makes some good ones too!! A must see and a great place to #step back in time..

Have been a patron for years...best doggone burgers in town. Always a walk down memory lane with the massive amount of "picker stuff" on display there. The owner and staff are great folks with a joke or just "talkin". Old time place with a great selection of ice cream and burgers the old fashioned way.

This little place was the only restaurant opened on New Years day in Hayesville. It was full of antiques and we enjoyed the burgers very much. While there, we met a family that lives in the same town as we do in Florida. What a small world! They had just purchased a cabin and invited us over to see their... More

From the moment we walked in, we were treated like family or old friends that they've known for years. This place makes you feel like home. The staff was great, the food was yummy... NEED I MENTION THE CHOCOLATE COOKIE DOUGH BROWNIE?! Just go! Shelia will definitely be there to greet you with a smile.

The restaurant is in what appears to be an old general store with quaint decor, but that's the end of the good part. The service was terrible and one of the worst I've ever had anywhere. They were slow, forgetful and very rude!!! The menu was very typical hamburgers, sandwiches, chili, french fries and onion rings. There was nothing special... More

My girls ( 8 and 11) loved it. They sat and played checkers while waiting for their meal. The waitress was sooo attentive and made sure we were well entertained. As soon as we sat down she was scooping popcorn out of the popcorn machine for us. The decorations take you back to the past and the food was very... More

Stopped there for ice cream on a hot summer afternoon. Parking is awkward and potentially dangerous. At first glance it appears to be a nostalgic little general store in a cute log cabin. However, hanging on the front porch there are two large religious/political signs that, frankly, I found offensive. I typically would not support a business that advertises this... More
