“My favourite family place to stay”
Reviewed November 19, 2012

This place is beautiful. We always stay in the blue ridge section of the hotel because of the fantastic view of the horse fields and mountains. The rooms are extremely spacious and well equipped. The rooms could use a little updating, but are always clean. The housekeeping staff is great and service at the front desk is always great. It is perfect for families, lots of room to run and animals for the kids to see. Its also very quiet. This is my second stay here and it won't be my last. Do not miss dinner in the dining room, just bring a big appetite!

“Awesome homestyle restaurant !”
Reviewed November 14, 2012

The Dillard House has been a longtime favorite of ours, we try to stop by every time we're in the area. It is old-fashioned dining in a classy, yet rustic atmosphere, with beautiful views of the mountains. The food is excellent and plentyful, a breath-taking array of choices of veggies, meats, side-dishes, rolls, etc., are served in individual bowls ( just like Grandma would have done), as many as the table will hold. Best of all, if you finish one, it will be replenished for you. So it is basically "All-you-can-eat", just different... and yes, you may take your left-overs with you. :-) ... Yay!! Squash-casserole and pork-chops are some of our favorite items. Dessert is also included, usually a peach-cobbler or similar. All in all for what you get it's a very good value for the price paid, and simply put a "must have experience", when in North Georgia !
The Dillard House also offers lodging, as well as outdoor activities, such as horseback riding. A petting zoo is sure to appeal to kids big and small alike.

“Great catering!”
Reviewed November 14, 2012

The Dillard House catered our company Thanksgiving Dinner earlier this week. Needless to say- they went out of the way to make it great! Quantity and presentation was great, they even brought things we didn't ask for. It was a traditional meal, Turkey, Ham, Mashed potatoes, dressing, green beans, creamed corn, butternut squash souffle, peas, cabbage casserole and rolls. That was the main meal- they also brought several salads, deviled eggs, a fresh fruit and veggie tray and at least a dozen pies and cakes. I can't say enough- they might seem a little on the pricey side, but they deliver, come back for the pans, and will also include items like tea, ice and papergoods if you ask. Well worth it!

“Great variety”
Reviewed November 12, 2012

My wife and I enjoyed a very nice Friday dinner at the Dillard house. There is a large menu board on the wall when you enter. Once you are seated, they bring all the menu items that change to some degreee daily, ~4 mains-fish, fried chicken, ham and country steak, and ~10 sides-salads, casseroles, breads... to your table! This is all southern cooking just so you know what you are getting into before you get there. It is all you care to eat so you may request as much as you'd like of any item. They do allow a to-go box as well. Dessert is after the meal and is also all you care to eat. Pies, cobbler. For the quantity served I felt the quality was overall maintained. I thought the main dishes were a little dry. I thought the sides were excellent. I thought dessert was average. Service was good but not overly friendly. Overall a fun meal, though not sure I would do it again-once may be enough.
