Best restaurant in Clayton. If there is a wait, don't worry. It will be worth it! Let the staff work their magic and find you a table. Let the kitchen work their magic and prepare your perfect breakfast! Doesn't really matter what you order. It...will be delicious 😋More

I cannot say enough good things about this cafe. We waited a little, but it was sooo worth the wait. Food is delicious and staff was so nice.

Drove down from Franklin, NC just to experience this place. It did not disappoint. They serve phenomenal dishes without cutting your options or condiments short. Best meal in the mountains!

What an experience. A great find for breakfast in Clayton. Stacked with memorabilia - you could spend all day just reading the stuff on the walls. If it wasn't so busy! The Trike was perfect, bacon - though a star docked for the large amount...of fat - eggs, hash browns and a wonderful biscuit. Inexpensive too.More

When traveling my passion is finding "that All American diner"! The Rusty Bike lived up to all the great review! Being a solo diner, I was seated at the counter. Wearing my college logo polo (VT), I was immediately questioned by the gentleman next to...me and a guy behind the bar. It was fun to have some friendly banter and my coffee showed up in a big Un of Georgia cup! Loved it! Maybe not some folks cup of tea but we had a good visit and I felt at home. Breakfast was eggs, sausage, and a biscuit. All good eating. The bill for the meal was under $10. As others have said, the place was packed. I enjoyed adding another great diner to my travel experiences! Be sure to stop if ever in Clayton , GA.More

This is one of the very few places anywhere in the world that I don’t mind waiting a while for a table. Their breakfasts and burgers are amazing. Very friendly place with lots of great staff. Don’t miss it. Gravy biscuits and fantastic.

We were a large group looking for a local place for a late lunch after a ziplining adventure. We called ahead to make sure they could accommodate us at the late hour. Service was fast and friendly, food was enjoyable. Greatly appreciated them getting us...in!More

Large portions of very good food at a fair price. Service was good considering how busy they were. When I Ieft at about 10:00 on a Thursday morning there was a line waiting to get in. I have never seen such a line anywhere for...breakfast on a Thursday morning. Excellent western omelet.More

Went on a Saturday morning for breakfast. There was a little wait, but not long. The staff was friendly and did a great job. I had the corned beef hash and it was very good, lots of corned beef in it. Eggs were cooked just...right, hash browns were crispy like I like them. And there was a lot of food on the plate.More

The food was good so no complaints there. My 3 stars comes from the extremely rude server (the tall one with dark hair). Now I am not unreasonable and I think I am very fair, but this lady was so rude to me that I...will give fair warning, ask for a different server. She basically accused me of trying to skip out and not pay my bill. Yeah, like I would do that over a child's chicken tender dinner yet leave a $9.00 tip on the table. Hope she reads this. I should have grabbed that tip and used it to pay. It was a complete misunderstanding and I won't go in to that, but next time be more tactful lady. I wouldn't purposely steal from you or anyone else. The fact you had a nice tip should have clued you.More

Great food, great service, it’s a must stop every time I visit Clayton! Love the Trike special. Country fried steak is great and my kids say the grits are the best, and so are the fries. Highly recommend.

We are open 7 days a week, 7-3. We are closed thanksgiving and Christmas. That Wednesday before will be a busy day. But the waits are generally short unless you have a large group.
