the Lamb Chops are excellent and the Pecan Crusted Trout was a huge portion. Everything was perfect and the Inn is charming.

A cute little inn hidden a long way down a gravel road more in the Hollywood area, not in Clarkesville. It was very rustic but elegant with a beautiful view and amazing food. Not a place to go if you are on a dinner budget, but definitely an experience worth paying for.

Ate at the restaurant twice during our stay. The staff & service was excellent & very welcoming. The food is amazing. Both had the tuna special on our first visit & the trout & steak on our second visit. Highly recommended the chocolate melt in the middle pudding for dessert, well worth the 13 mins for them to cook it.... More

Delicious, beautifully presented and a real treat. My husband had the chef's special which was a pasta with mussels and I had roasted chicken. Both were impeccably and creatively plated and very tasty.

Great place to entertain good friends especially if they are from out of town. They will wonder where you are taking them down a gravel road. The mildly rough ride is worth every inch. The restaurant is old time charm. Great menu from steak, Pecan crusted rainbow trout to lamb, you can not go wrong. Prices are good for the... More

Glen-Ella Springs is a beautiful place. You can walk around the grounds and see the gardens. The food is one of the best I have ever eaten. Wondering setting and great service. The food is wow.

Good variety of options and great presentation, quality, and taste of food. Much better than one would probably expect in this remote mountain location. We stayed at the Inn and had dinner on a Sat evening and breakfast 2 mornings. Loved both presentations. We sat on the pretty patio for dinner and looked out over the beautiful gardens and could...

During our our stay at the Glen--Ella Springs Inn we enjoyed 3 breakfasts and 2 dinners in their restaurant. Every meal was superb. It is the best restaurant in North Georgia and ranks with the very best in Atlanta.

Beautiful place, with great staff and a nice menu. Food is prepared as food is supposed to be prepared: tasteful. This is place is truly a hidden gem. I would tell anyone to go and have a dinner and if possible stay in their B&B. I have no doubt the experience would be at least as good.
