There was nothing wrong with this restaurant. It just wasn’t memorable. It was good. More attentive service would have brought it to very good, but our server never brought my son’s salad or the cole slaw that came with my entree. I wasn’t worried about...it because the portions were more than generous, so I didn’t remind her. The beer was cold. I thought the spicy greens/tomatoes were excellent. I had the signature dish, the crab cakes. I enjoyed them, but they weren’t the best crab cakes I’ve ever had, but I appreciated their take on them. My husband enjoyed his chicken alfredo. It is a quaint little spot near an old train depot. I know it can be draining to attempt a connection with each and every family that vacations and dines here, but doing so would drive your results. Best wishes!More
Stumble on this gem after a day of visiting family. What a find! The stuffed mushrooms were so good & came out in a NY minute! I had the shrimp & grits, husband had the fried catfish. Simply wonderful... all that was missing was some...boudin!More
We had lunch here today, following the recommendation of friends who had "discovered" the restaurant a few days earlier. First of all, we loved the appearance of the old building's exterior. Upon entering, we were pleasantly greeted and seated. Our server was friendly and efficient....I ordered 1/2 muffuletta sandwich with a cup of gumbo. I was not disappointed. My husband had a delicious hamburger and a cup of red beans and rice. We enjoyed the entire dining experience and look forward to returning..More
We live in Dalton, Ga and stop by when traveling. The food and service is A+. Small place and very easy to get to in Ellijay. The staff is always helpful and friendly supporting this restaurant...We have tried different things on the menu and everything...has been great. The wife loves the crab cakes and I like the gumbo to get started. There is a large variety on the menu. Highly recommended.-.-.More
Have been here several times so we decided to go before they closed. I ordered the catfish platter and it comes with cole slaw hushpuppies and fries. Wife ordered the shrimp platter with same sides. Their catfish filets are huge and delicious as is the...shrimp. I gave a 4 on this because of the fries. Crinkle cut and they where not good. Home fries would be better or sliced fries. Anyway this place is reasonably priced and worth the money!!More
Exceptional service and phenomenal food! You HAVE to try this place! The stuffed catfish is the best, it does take a little longer to cook due to being cooked at a low temp in a skillet to insure it gets fully cooked without being burnt...on the outside! The burgers are also fresh and never frozen! Try the Cajun Depot burger, it's the bomb!More
