The gal behind the bar was super sweet. And helpful. The meal, however, was a disappointment. Fourty one bucks for a not so special lunch (without alcohol) is why we won't be back.

We enjoyed their hamburger special. The hamburgers were very tasty with wonderful fresh sides. The ranch potato salad was yummy too.

I stopped in here for dinner on a Monday around 7pm and it was not busy at all. Ordered food and a drink and both were ok, but this place is definitely geared more towards serving drinks than food. It's a bit much to pay $12 for a burger that tastes like a $2 burger from a fast food restaurant.... More

Stopped in during the arts fest in May. Very friendly place. Lots of different local Georgia craft brews plus other varieties of beers. Had the tavern nachos which were very good. The bartender was very attentive and gave good advice as to whichever brews were his favorites. Blogs welcome on patio.

Delonega, GA is a treasure in the north Georgia mountains. The home of the University of North Georgia, Delonega in nestled in the in the southern reaches of the north Georgia mountains, directly north of Atlanta, about an hour's drive up route 400. We visited Chestatee Garden and Tavern just to have a few drinks and ended up staying awhile!... More

Stopped in for a quick dinner. The service was exceptional! The bartender Corey went above and beyond to connect with our table. We had a variety of drinks and beer, plus he made our meals. The food is mostly grease bar food, which you crave sometimes. But, for the price and quality, I feel this should only be a place... More

I have only eaten here once or twice, but I have been here for drinks in college several times. It was always fun, the outside patio area is nice to sit at when the inside gets too crowded. The drinks are good and the bartenders/servers were very sweet!

We stopped here for lunch on a motorcycle day trip in the mountains. Walked around the whole square and this place caught our eye. Nice outside patio. Small but cozy place overall. Owner extremely nice and hospital. The place wasn't that busy when we were there so he made time speak with us for a few minutes... super down-to-earth and... More

Great place for a beer and lunch just off the square. Nice draft beer selection and a killer pretzel and cheese sauce. Reasonable in pricing and great in quality.
