Lake Rabun Hotel and Restaurant
A "Gem" on the LakeService, Food and Atmosphere is wonderful. Each time I visit here, all is good. Will be back many times.5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Brunch Value aroundA quaint Hotel on beautiful Lake Rabun with a great Brunch available on Sat/Sun. If you want to order a bottle of sparkling wine, there is a good value Spanish variety for a great price (wait til 1230 on Sunday, tho). The brunch menu has several very nice selections, the food is excellent - well and freshly prepared, the amount of food is generous, and the prices are very reasonable given the setting. The Chef (Jamie Allred) is well known and featured in "Best Chefs of America." He uses a lot of ingredients from local farms and gardens in this area. If you are in Northeast Georgia and would like a nice dining experience - recommend you give it a try!5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMMake ReservationsI hate to give this restaurant such a great rating, because it is hard to get reservations after 6:45 pm. Everytime we are in that area we go. It's a great place to take friends as well. During the summer, you will reservations at least two weeks in advance!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day BrunchWe enjoyed our brunch at Lake Rabun Hotel & Restaurant. It was our first visit. The food was delicious; the service was attentive. The setting of the hotel and the ambience were lovely - nestled among trees above Lake Rabun, with a rustic but up to date feel inside. The only downside: The Mother's Day menu was not friendly to kids - a problem for a mother celebrating with her children. There was no kids' menu, and we were told no substitutions. We asked, however, if the hollandaise sauce could be left off of (but nothing added or otherwise changed to) our 7 year old son's poached eggs, ham and biscuit. The kitchen refused, and all came slathered with sauce. He didn't eat any of it; we all contributed food from our meals so he could eat.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect Mother's Day BrunchWonderful place for a get away weekend lunch and dinner. It's a historic hotel with a comfortable dining area. The meals are excellent, using local products when possible. You must try the shrimp and grits! Our server, Jack, was attentive and very upbeat. We dine here as often as possible and are never disappointed. It's a very romantic place for that special person. We had a little private room that was perfect for conversation!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMunsatisfactory seatingWe are regular customers who are becoming a little disenchanted with the lack of good seating. This place seems to have a policy of filling up the worst tables first. We think every customer should be seated at the best table available no exceptions.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic food and view.Fantastic food and view.

I see why the reviews put the Lake Rabun Hotel Restaurant in the top 6 in Georgia.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMWe stopped in for lunch onWe stopped in for lunch on a cold and dreary Sunday afternoon. The great service and excellent food were the perfect pick-me-up.
We started with the delicious fried green tomatoes with grits and ham gravy. The tomatoes were perfectly fried--crisp, not greasy, and the grits and ham gravy were a bonus.
Our burger was cooked to perfection--excellent beef, applewood bacon and pimento cheese and huge amount of perfect hand cut fries seasoned just right. We saved the best for last and enjoyed the best Monte Cristo I've ever had. Slightly salty lean ham and turkey, bacon and swiss, fried to golden crisp perfection in a beignet-like batter, topped with fresh strawberry rhubarb jam. Messy nirvana!3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is the second time myThis is the second time my wife and I have dined at the restaurant. The menu is uncomplicated and the food is always fresh and perfectly seasoned. We both really appreciate the chef's interpretation of farm-to-table.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMBoth my husband and I lovedBoth my husband and I loved everything we ordered.
