We had a 5pm reservation for a party of 8. We were in town to see Jamey Johnson next door. It took forever to get drinks, and service was terrible!! We ended up having to leave without dinner!! 2 hours and no food... very disappointed!

Our group had several steak and seafood dishes and all were well prepared. Steaks were done exactly as ordered, nothing over or under done. Cheerful, attentive service. Interesting variety of original dishes, prices very reasonable for such good quality.

This place is temporarily closed due to renovation. It will reopen in Spring 2017.

The Chophouse of Hiawassee will be closed beginning on January 2nd for renovations. Chef James will be introducing his new concept "Hawg Wild BBQ and Catfish House" sometime in early spring. This will be his 4th such restaurant with the other locations being in Clarkesville, Commerce and lake Burton, Georgia. The renovations will include a redesign of the dining room and kitchen areas, covering the front lakeview patio and building a new smokehouse. Hawg Wild BBQ and Catfish House is known for it's authentic BBQ and the freshest catfish available. We look forward to welcoming you to the new restaurant this spring!
