We had lunch July 13 about 2pm. Greeted by friendly staff, attentive servers, very knowledgable about the food and wine! Food came out timely, beautiful presentation, fresh and hot! We even got tempted by the homemade vanilla cake with Chocolate frosting! Awesome! Again a beautiful presentation! Almost looked to good to eat! But We did! And it was fantastic! All... More

Went for lunch and the food was great. A little pricey but it was worthy. It probably looks good at night... they have a mural/fence along the property with small lights imitating the stars.

We visited Corkscrew about six months ago; food good, service lacking. Today after visiting a local winery we stopped by.... Excellent on every level Great service; thank you Sidney! Excellent app, mushroom pate and entries of the trout and eggplant. We ate downstairs which has been completely redone ... Frankly casual,nice and cool ( 95 today) and delightful. The food,... More

I ordered the Muffuletta sandwich. What I received was a ham sandwich. The person I was with ordered the cheeseburger medium rare and it was well done. The waitress was made aware of this and her statement was, "Well, I told the chef what you wanted." Would have received better food and service at Subway.

This place offers upscale fine dining and a fun bar area with music. Make sure you go around back and check out the Van Gogh style mural. Also go to the restroom in order to walk past the historical city jail.

Attended a bridesmaid brunch here. Great mimosas. Very good quiche. Service friendly and efficient. Just off the beaten path.

It would be easy to accidentally drive past this little gem with the non-descript exterior. That would be a mistake. This is easily the place in Dahlonega to celebrate a special occasion. While we were there celebrating our 17th anniversary, a bridal party enjoyed their celebration, another couple got engaged and others simply enjoyed the great wine, food and attentive... More

We've been to Dahlonega several times and the central square is delightful, quaint and not too 'touristy'. Usually we eat at an upscale burger or pizza place as we have a small army of kids. I've never had a bad meal anywhere in the city. Just 1/2 block south of the main square is this absolutely delightful find. My daughter... More

I rarely find a restaurant I can call 5 star, but this one even exceeded my critical standards. Yes that's right, they have upped the star bar to 6 and maybe, even to 7 stars. The service was professional, yet friendly. The chef is more akin to being called an artist, than cook. They even had live music, a couple... More

This is a great place that is a little off the main track. The food is a step above most in the area and very good. I am a great fan of the Duck salad and would recommend it without hesitation. Give it a try.

Thank Dean H
