I like duck and the duck duet was excellent! Chicken fried duck breast with gravy and a sweet potato gratin that complimented the dish nicely! The smoked Gouda fritters are always a necessity! Also enjoyed the autumn old fashioned very much. I’ll be back while this dish is still on the menu.

The only things that really wowed us were the Gouda Fritters and our dessert. The fritters were warm and tasty and our tart was rich and flavorful. The entrees were another story. The portion size was inadequate for the price we paid for them, and the flavor did not make up the difference. We’ve been there before but it seems like both the quality and quantity are falling too much for the price.

I have been fortunate to travel and dine on every continent on the world except Antarctica. I can honestly say that the quality and presentation of the food is second to none. The service is also 5 stars.

Unfortunately one person in our party is avoiding carbohydrates and felt it unnecessary to upcharge $4 additional dollars to have no potato with his steak so he opted for a salad instead and he probably wouldn’t go back

We were visiting from out of state an saw this restaurant while driving through town. We decided to try it and we are so happy we did. The food was fabulous, we had the pork chop (cooked to perfection) and also the special which was grouper., equally as good. Service was excellent as was the ambiance. We never eat at the same test twice while traveling but will probably make an exception this time and have dinner again before we leave.

I don't know where to begin. My husband and I recently celebrated our 42nd wedding anniversary at Fortify - and as usual, we were not disappointed. We love everything about Fortify from the architectural ambiance, the attentive staff, the creative and delicious food, the wine and drink selections, the attention to detail to the local sourcing of ingredients - Fortify has perfected the art of pleasurable dining.

Food was delicious. The atmosphere was wonderful. Our waiter was most accommodating with my wife's celiac issues and brought gluten free bread for her. Definitely made our anniversary dinner perfect!

We love Fortify, but we were seated at a table that ended up next to a HUGE male gathering—VERY NOISY!!

As always, the food was delicious. However, this night the squash was very salty, and the creme brulee a bit thin. Still a wonderful meal.

Fortify is always on its game! The food is always great. If I had to pick anything to critique it would be the service. The service was very good, but slightly rushed. We will be back again and again!!

If you really want to feel embraced by the ambiance of the North Georgia mountains, Fortify is the place to go. As we entered, on every wall we were able to enjoy the breathtaking nature photography of Peter McIntosh. We were seated promptly, in keeping with our chosen reservation time, and the service was attentive and excellent. I had the filet, which was divine. My husband had the swordfish, which was also spectacular. We look forward to our next savory visit to Fortify!

It was ok but not as good as the recommendations. My scallops were way to salty. Server wasn’t as attentive as expected. Overall I would say it was good but not great!!

First time eating boar, and it was far, far beyond my happiest expectations. Great sides, amazing desserts. Whole family absolutely loved everything they had. Jeremy was super, other wait staff took care of us from time to time as well and together they left nothing to chance. It was the perfect kickoff to a marvelous weekend. We can't wait to do it again!

38th Anniversary. The trout was fixed to perfection as was the fillet. Service held its customary quality that we have receive each time. The quality of the products that are used in making our wonderful meals and deserts shine through.

We have already recommended Fortify to our friends. A true JEWEL of a restaurant in Northwestern Georgia .... Great food, staff and service. It was great to experience wine from local vineyards . . . and know that the food was also locally grown. Can't wait to go back for another excellent dining experience.

Both of us ordered the special of the day red snapper. It was served hot and moist and the side green beans were very tasty. Our server (Joey) was very polite, funny and attentive. We couldn’t have asked for better. We drive an hour to get there and have never been dissatisfied. Usually go there for special occasions or with a group and enjoy ourselves thoroughly. 😎👍🇺🇸
