“No Joy”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

This was a quaint place to get breakfast or lunch if you didn't mind a ridiculously long wait on the kitchen staff to prepare your meal. Now you still get the ridiculous wait and the food is terrible. Went back several times hoping that I just hit them on a bad day, no joy. The food is consistently of poor quality and the amount of time it takes the kitchen to produce the bad food is absurd. They seem to be concentrating on selling overpriced salt lamps and low quality, high priced fake country trinkets. If you need a salt lamp or low grade fake country trinkets, I would suggest eBay. If you are headed to the lake or fishing in the area in need of a meal, keep driving.

“This is how Cracker Barrel started out!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

The first few times we drove by the place was so packed that we just kept going. Then we tried going mid-morning and were able to get in with no problem. They were not serving breakfast any more, so we both had sandwiches - and they were quite good. We had 2 sandwiches, a couple sides, sweet tea's, and split a desert - and got out of there for $20 (which included a 25% tip). And, by the time we were leaving every table in the place was taken. This place is like an old-time general store with little folk art items for sale. Cute place. I wouldn't eat EVERY meal here, but you gotta try it out. (I'm really surprised it has such a low rating in Clarkesville.)

“A bit pricey”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012

Great food, huge biscuits, but the lunch prices will give you a heart attack.
Very cozy atmosphere, cute little store. Its just the food prices were way too high. I might get a biscuit there again but won't eat lunch again, unless the prices come down

“A great place to stop while exploring the area!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2012

Batesville General Store is a great place to stop for lunch or dinner while exploring the North Georgia Mountains. I've eaten here several times over the years & always have a great meal. I've heard they serve a great breakfast too!

“Great hamburgers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2012

A familiar stopover for travelers by car or motorcycle. Nothing fancy but a delicious, modest priced meal in a comfy atmosphere.
