Stopped in for lunch and was pleasantly surprised. Service was fast and friendly, the pulled pork was delicious and plentiful and the view of Lake Chatuge was awesome. Prices were reasonable with a good variety of menu options. I would definitely stop here again.

Do not miss this place. Beautiful views looking over the north Georgia mountains and Chatuge Lake. Awesome food and the best catfish you will ever have! We also had the pulled chicken and pulled pork and both were excellent. Freindly staff and very reasonable pricing.More
