I had the loaded chicken salad. My wife had the fish tacos, which had been recommended. Maybe it was the fact that the restaurant was closing for a private party in 3 hours from when we arrived (noon), but service was slow. The restaurant was...less than a quarter full. The food was very good. However, the waitress was inattentive. She first returned to refill water after we were done eating. The menu we got at the Dahlonega visitor center is outdated. Prices are $2-4 higher on the new menu. Additionally, the menu is has decreased in size. Meatloaf and chicken pot pie are two dishes that are not on the current menu. The porch is heated and closed off from the outside. It was quite toasty. Would we give it another chance? Probably, but not if time is tight.More

DO NOT USE FOR CATERING. I would give zero stars if I could. My fiancé and I decided on using Yahoola Creek as our wedding caterer after being blown away by our tasting at the restaurant. However, on our wedding day, our food did not...resemble the tasting at all. The green beans were clearly from frozen and the shrimp and grits were micro sized. Do yourself a favor and do not use them as a vendor. Pictures from tasting vs what we had wedding night..More

A year or so ago I wrote a 1 star review for this place and never went back. After hearing about some changes, I ventured back with friends and am ecstatic to now change my rating to five stars. The food and service were both...excellent. We are now ready to put their brunch at the top of our list on the weekends.. We have been three times and everything we have tried is delicious and plentiful.More

The view in the enclosed balcony and the food was spectacular. We enjoyed every bite in our casual dinner. We ate at our favorite table and loved the fish.

This restaurant is good. Great location in the woods. We sat on the patio and enjoyed the fresh air. Our group was four hungry hikers (we just did 10 mile hike nearby) .... ... The food. Great. I had the burger which was near perfection...on a chobani bun. The nice touch was seafood soup for the side, which is healthier than french fries. My friends had fried chicken salad, tacos, talapia; and all enjoyed their meals. One woman is a chef and she really liked her food and only complaint was it was slightly salty. Service was so so. All in all worth a stop here.More

Went for Sunday brunch on Valentine's weekend based on a recommendation from friends. Just a big disappointment. Starting off with our service. The young guy who waited on us just could not get anything right. I ordered a Cosmo and it tasted so sweet with...very little if any alcohol. Our drinks came very late even though it was not that crowded. It took way too long to take our food order. Other partied that came in after us had their orders taken before us. The waiter took our orders. Then came back almost 10 minutes later and said "I can't read my own handwriting, what did you order again". All four in our party just looked at each other and could not believe it took 10 minutes to figure our order could not be read. I can't make this up. Eggs Benedict, Inside out Grilled Cheese and Omelet's were just average. Fruit coming with the meals were not fresh. Oh and the music was too loud and could not understand what it added to a family restaurant. There are better options in Dahlonega.More

Leah the wedding coordinator was an absolute delight to work with. She and her staff, including Kristin, followed my decorating instructions to the letter. My husband and I were absolutely delighted with the overall service, ambience, quality of the food as well as taste, the...terrace level space was welcoming, clean and overall just perfect for a crowd of 38 people. Nice background music was playing in the background, parking was convenient and the private restrooms most appreciated. At the end, the staff kindly assisted me in packing up the many beautiful decorations we had delivered. I had been told by a Dahlonega resident that this facility was the very BEST nearby for a rehearsal dinner when the wedding was being held the next evening at Wolf Mountain Wineries. If I could, I would give this facility overall TEN Plus stars. We could not have been happier all the way round. Thank you, Leah and Staff! Bob and Lori HowardMore

We had a very poor experience at this restaurant. Firstly, we walked in and someone asked us to wait 5 minutes to clean a table off, even though there were multiple available tables. We stepped outside for 15 minutes, and nobody said anything. I stepped...back inside and a woman asked if we could wait about 10 minutes to clean a table. We stated that we had been waiting already for about 15 minutes, and instead of being seated, we were told to go sit at a table on the patio. We sat down, and we didn’t have menus nor were we even greeted for about five minutes. As a result, we got up and left. The bartender and the waitress watched us walk out and didn’t try to stop us or find out what was wrong. We will take our business elsewhere. They seem to cater to certain people, so if you feel as if you won’t fit the type, you shouldn’t waste your time and go.More

This chef is topnotch. Fried green tomatoes, burgers, fish tacos, grouper sandwich. It's got to be hard to please everyone in a group of six, but he did. The service from waitress Leah was excellent.

Yahoola Creek Grill is consistently great! Their menu is diverse with plenty of comfort foods and they always have specials to add to the selection. I live in Dahlonega and I choose to eat here at least twice a month. The service is always friendly...and personal. Oh, the deserts are sooooooooo good with plenty of options! They also seem to manage the mask scenario with common sense being relaxed when possible and more strict while serving those who may be more fearful making dining a pleasant experience for all.More

Cute little restaurant and it was dog friendly-for us...a big plus. The food great and the staff was good. I do think it’s a few dollars higher per item than expected. For a family of 4, lunch was $80 including tip. (This was without cocktails)....Overall, it was a good experience.More

I had an amazing entree called vegetable cakes and there are several excellent salads that are vegetarian. I'm not sure whether they would be considered vegan.
