The cafe is a nice place to visit. It is in an old store or warehouse from long ago. The staff was friendly enough. They have a bar and serve beer. One item is a 3 cheese grilled cheese with tomatoes, lettuce, etc. I asked for bacon on the sandwich. Oops, no bacon. They did offer to get some bacon.... More

Although we have tried many other good restaurants in Dahlonega over the past couple days, this was my favorite...should be much higher than #16 on Trip Advisor. We had the fondu, crab cakes and grilled cheese sandwich, all were excellent. For those traveling with kids, they also had quite a few kids menu selections as well. It has a quirky... More

Best in town, but not the fastest. Delicious cheese grits, bacon, biscuits etc. probably in that order too😀.

We stumbled into the Crimson Moon on a weekday afternoon looking for a little local flavor for lunch. We were the only ones there at first and loved the rustic charm of the place. Husband ordered a wonderful burger with bacon, cheese and caramelized onions. Juicy and luscious. His regular fries were cooked crisp and full of flavor. I had... More

I always love going to the Crimson Moon. Staff understand gluten free and I'm never disappointed with their recommendations. This time I had a fantastic carrot cake that you'd never guess was gluten free. The family eats "normal food" and they love the selection and taste!

We had dinner there and it was very good. We had the lobster fondue appetizer and ribeye steak and crab cakes for entrees. We stayed for the "Boomers Gone Wild" music show and was somewhat disappointed with the band. The place could use a little sprucing up but overall a nice evening.

I read all the good reviews and decided to try this pretty restaurant: location I great, the live music was impressive but...the service was unreasonable slow. The food was just average. The staff was very nice and the vibes were good but in the end-- I'd skip this place.

Our wedding group met on the second floor after the rehearsal dinner. The service was very good and drinks reasonable.

It has a good location as it is downtown and near the college. My wife and I commented on how cool the atmosphere was and the menu had lots of great options. The waitress was prompt in taking our order. About 30 minutes after ordering, some friends showed up so we asked the waitress if we could move to a... More
