First trip was pick up order and the owner was who i talked with. He was very friendly and the quality was great. Second trip my family of six ate in the location. The snooty server was very non attentive and left food off from what we ordered. The food quality is great, the service was terrible.

We enjoyed a wonderful dinner at The Corkscrew Cafe. We enjoyed the steak special and fish entrees. Great Wine choices, some vegetables were grown locally. Server staff and the chefs did an provided excellent service and quality food. Look forward to returning.

The food at the Corkscrew Cafe is excellent. I shared a steak sandwich with my sister and we each had a cup of the French Onion soup. The steak sandwich was so tender and the bread was soooo soft and fresh. The French Onion soup was some of the best I have ever had. My husband had the club and he usually complains about food, but he really enjoyed his sandwich. The owner of the cafe stopped by our table to make sure our meal was to our satisfaction. That was a nice touch to an excellent meal. I will definitely dine here when I'm in Dahlonega.

We went for dinner. This was not our first visit. As usual the food and service were exceptional. We always look forward to visit to the Corkscrew. Rob does a wonderful job making sure everything runs smoothly. The weather was perfect for sitting outdoors and that made the evening better. They always respect the reservation that we had. We find this uncommon with many restaurants. The Ahi tuna and duck dinners were both delicious. We are looking forward to our next visit.

The Corkscrew Cafe was a great find during our trip to Northern Georgia wine country. The food was outstanding, including a wonderfully creative cheese plate with pickled peaches and homemade jam. My wife's steak was cooked perfectly and my tuna was seared rare the way it is meant to be served. Our waitress was a delightfully attentive young person who made the experience very enjoyable. The wine list is very defensible, including some tasty local wines. This is a great location for a date or a family meal where the food is dressed up but you don't have to be.
