We decided to not cook this Thanksgiving. After some discussion, we headed north about 25 mile to Dahlonega.
Some people might be turned off at the thought of sitting at a table full of stranger and "tying on the feed bag" but not us. This restaurant does not accept reservations. So, you pay before you enter the dining room. On busy days, such as ours, you will wait in line. We waited about ten minutes. If it's a longer wait, they will take names and call them in order. The building itself is historic and they are all kinds of interesting stuff inside to keep you busy while you wait.
The table we sat at held fourteen people and only one place was empty. The serving bowls were filled when we sat down and we just started serving and passing the bowls around the table. When a bowl was empty a staff member would refill it. There were plenty of choice to suit any taste. The fried chicken is to die for. And at the end.... pie. What can I say.
We enjoyed the food, the company and the atmosphere. The staff is wonderful. Don't miss exploring the shop and the rest of the house especially the old Gold Mine shaft they discovered under the house. After the meal, enjoy a walk around Dahlonega Square and explore it's many shops or a drive through the mountains.
Truly a wonderful day.
