My husband and I stayed at this delightful Inn for an early birthday celebration. So, we made dinner reservations as well. While enjoying one of the most delicious dinners, my husband wondered how this quaint Inn was able to hire a five-star Chef? The food was that good! We sent praising words back to the Chef and he came out to thank us personally. Surprisingly, he was a young man who worked hard and with much passion for his love of cooking! The dining room was brimming over with locals as well as with the guests staying at the Inn. The owner and staff were incredibly welcoming and helpful! The Inn itself is overflowing with special, artistic touches that we appreciated very much. The garden and grounds were lovely. It was easy to feel all the attention to detail and the love that put it there. We LOVED the food and will return again and again! Kudos to the Chef and to the Inn! Thank you for the splendorous experience. You helped us to create some very fond memories...

A Prime Steakhouse of the highest caliber that transports you into another world, where time stands still, and memories are made.

Community is more than a restaurant, it’s a destination you seek out for the ultimate dining experience. From the Maître D’ that greets you at the door, to the smoked cocktails at the bar, and the world class steaks you enjoy with a bottle of your favorite wine, everything is done with style and impeccable service, in a relaxing prohibition atmosphere.

It was a perfect evening. The staff was friendly and inviting and the wait staff was very attentive without being over bearing. The food was delicious and beautifully presented. The upstairs atmosphere had good energy while the downstairs was more quiet and intimate. We had a wonderful time and will definitely visit again!

About the restaurant
In the mountains of North Georgia the Lake Rabun Hotel & Restaurant has been welcoming guests since 1922. Restored in 2008, the hotel and restaurant offer the best of rustic elegance. From the antique heart pine walls to the locust beams on our deck, expect unique, local craftsmanship. The decor is rich with period antiques, hand-woven rugs, and local artwork.

It features a creatively prepared and presented Contemporary American menu with a Southern twist in the farm to table tradition. Fresh produce locally grown is hand selected and prepared by our Chef de Cuisine, whose entrees respect the natural flavors of high quality, humanely raised and locally harvested food. His kitchen produces cuisines from many regions including Classical French, Southern USA, and Mediterranean. Many guests describe the food at the Lake Rabun Hotel as "the best in the mountains."

About the restaurant
Great barbecue and chef pride go hand-in-hand. And we have both. Our southern-inspired menu has the classic recipes that you crave, and the perfect twist on traditional dishes that are sure to satisfy. Taste our Bourbon Glazed Salmon and Bacon Wrapped Smoked Meatloaf. Or check out our signature Louisiana dishes including Jambalaya or Shrimp and Grits. Our meats are smoked in our Ole Hickory Pit Smoker and everything in between is made in our scratch kitchen. Our rubs and sauces are all our own recipe. Incredible smoked meats and great bourbons are what we're made of.

I would have given a perfect score but although my food tasted great, it was luke warm when it came out. I ordered the Shrimp and grits and chili and both were not warm enough. I am guessing these are items that are heated and it was early lunch so they may not have reached maximum heat.

The service was excellent and food we ordered was delicious. We got the ribeye, pork chop and the Norse chicken. All food came out timely and perfectly prepared. Our server was awesome, the chef greeted us and the management and staff were very attentive. I will definitely bring my family here again.
