The Back Porch Bistro, owned and operated by Pete & Tami Swanson, is Ellijay’s "hidden gem". Our quaint restaurant is located in the heart of Historic Downtown Ellijay with access via the Ellijay Marketplace. There is an additional rear entrance from our spacious, pet friendly outside deck. We feature fresh hand made wraps, sandwiches, & paninis ; including a variety of vegetarian, vegan, and Gluten Free options. All our sides, soups and desserts are homemade by Tami herself. One taste and you are assured it is homemade and not simply called homemade. We also offer burritos and bowls, Cuban sandwiches, and a nice selection of salads. Come in and enjoy a first class food experience in downtown…
We've had a second home in Ellijay for a little over 10 years and stay there roughly every other weekend. We've always heard great things about this place and I'm so glad we finally tried it! Nice variety on the menu - we had the...Cuban sandwiches which were excellent. Very friendly staff, a cute dog-friendly porch. I didn't find it "touristy" at all. In fact, it just was good food at reasonable prices served by nice people in pleasant surroundings (cute art too!) - which is great for everyone: locals, tourists and hybrids like us. We will definitely be back to try some of the other things on the menu. Thanks for a great meal!More
Back Porch Bistro has great food and service. Their sandwiches are amazing and I highly recommend getting them made like a panini. Their service was fast and very friendly. They also have a great location and porch area in downtown Ellijay. We really enjoyed this...place!More
My husband, our dog, Lucky and I were in the area for a few days of hiking. We discovered this spot by seeing the back porch from the street. It was perfect for us having a dog. Clean water was set up in a dog...bowl, and when I went inside to order at the counter from a very nice server(ended up being the owner), he gave me a dog treat for the dog. Sandwiches were very good. I had the Turkey Cranberry & my husband had the Roast Beef w/brie. The sides were very good(Homemade taste), potato salad and apple slaw. Prices are good. Very comfortable patio seating, clean bathroom. Really was a enjoyable find. We returned the next day for another visit.More
We look for local owned places and Back Porch Bistro was just what we were looking for. We ordered the Gyro with Potato Salad and the Fiesta Wrap with Apple Slaw. The sandwiches were so good! Friendly owners, brought to our table fast, great mix...of flavors!More
Stopped in while walking around Ellijay. We were looking for a snack and found great sandwiches. We both had chicken salad. It was yummy. The almonds were a surprise! The potato and macaroni salads were heavy on dill and mayo but weren’t terrible just a...little runny. Staff was friendly.More
