A unique experience in a tucked away corner of North east Georgia. Brunswick stew, cole slaw, brisket, fried fish, lots of different southern foods. Not a cheap place to eat if you have a crowd, but not overly expensive. Plastic plates and cups, like a picnic inside, but many friendly local faces.

Having heard a number recommend this restaurant, my wife & I decided to try it out one Saturday afternoon. We were seated by 1:30 for a late lunch, at a time when not crowded.

The meal includes fries, hush puppies and coleslaw along with three pieces of fish. The beverage options are water, sweet tea, tea or soft drinks. This is simple fare served with pride and there is no reason... More

We were a family of 11 on vacation, renting a beautiful lake house in Lavonia, Georgia. On our last night, we decided to go out and try some local cuisine. We picked the Gumlog BBQ and Fish Lodge as it was only 5 minutes away and we had already read some really great reviews of the place. We were all... More

Been around forever but the food is getting smaller and the prices are going up. I don't come here much anymore as there is better and cheaper close by.

Our group had reservations on a busy Friday lunch hour so not a long wait for a table. Their menu of BBQ & fish lends to quick service. The beef brisket was delicious and the prices are very reasonable
