I love this restaurant. They never disappoint. There is always a creative seasonal menu featuring farm to table ingredients. As a pescatarian I enjoy their great veggies and seafood options. If you are in the area I highly recommend checking them out.
Fantastic food, drinks, service and just darn good.
Always great! Love having in the neighborhood! Always recommend to anyone visiting and that they take me with you.
Great restaurant in downtown Clayton, GA. The atmosphere and food were excellent!
Shane had a very busy night under control.
Food was excellent. The service was friendly and responsive.
Truly one of the best restaurants I’ve ever eaten at. The service, food, and quality was superb. I will be back again and again.
Great gluten free/vegan and vegetarian options. Your gluten free rolls were amazing, it felt like I was eating real bread!!! Thank you! Your food is always delicious! I come all the way from Atlanta for your food.
You always fulfill our expectations. We enjoy the experience every time. Thank You.
We loved it all. Can’t wait to come again. Thank you.
We love this restaurant, we try to visit over time we are in town. Food is always wonderful. We both ordered the steak, which we have had in past and was aways great, but this time my husband ordered it cooked medium well. His was well done. I ordered well done no pink, mine was pink on inside and chared or burnt on outside. We did not complain since for is usually great.
Excellent experience. We will make plans to eat there again. We will refer friends and family to eat there too.
Our 2nd dinner at Fortify did not disappoint! It was excellent, from the inventive cocktais, to the appetizers, to the main course, to desserts. Our server was great too! We will be back.
Great dinner! Their special soup was amazing—potato.
Great place. Our second time, and we'll go again, but do not get a table in the back by the restrooms....takes away the charm. I should have requested to be moved.
This is an awesome restaurant in the North Georgia mountains. Carlton, the mixologist, is the best bartender we've ever had. His shrubs are amazing!
Our waiter, Jeremy, was absolutely fantastic. So personable and helpful and really just made the whole experience! And the food was amazing to boot!
Wonderful dining experience
Always a great spot for any occasion
Great meal and great service; Fortify is a favorite of ours.
Great place to eat, good service and very helpful team.
Had a reservation for three. When we arrived the women put us a very nice table. Before we settled in she came back and said she had promised the table to someone else and would we move. Bad mistake. We ended up at the back where two sat on bench next to wall and i sat in a very uncomfortable metal chair facing the wall. Next time I will be specific about what I expect.
Fortify is a great Farm to Table Restaurant located in beautiful downtown Clayton, Ga.
It is well worth an hour drive to just eat there. Everything we have ever eaten there has been
prepared, seasoned and well plated ...........DELICIOUS!
For this area this is a great choice however, they are kinda full of themselves. They never let you switch vegetable choices, and often think they are doing you a favor letting you dine there. I don't know what that's about.
I'm glad that the quality of the food is almost always very good.
Always great food. We brought friends visiting from Seattle who were also very complimentary. So thankful to have a restaurant of this quality in Rabun County
Better and Better! From the day we walked into Fortify we have watched and enjoyed each and every accomplishment and from the best to better is one of the greatest things I can say about this Mountain Main Street restaurants.
The food is amazing and the service is superb. We highly recommend it to all of our friends
A mixed bag on our first (and probably last) visit for a special occasion. Our open table reservation was not on file - an awkward check-in as we were presumed to have no reservation and discussion about what to do with us as we looked in at a mostly empty restaurant (it was early). I would recommend calling the restaurant directly to make a reservation since they had no record of our open table booking or additional confirmation provided the day before.
Cocktails were delicious, as were our starters of fall salad and butternut squash soup. Breads were lovely and gluten free options were especially nice - lots of GF options on the menu (most of them). Entrees were ok - lamb shank was tender but not especially well seasoned. Venison was also very tender but somewhat bitter. Plating could have been nicer for the price point. Coffee delicious but seasonal creme brulee wasn't torched and reminiscent of butterscotch pudding - definitely skip.
We knew of the place as area foodies and market gardeners that had heard good things from other farmers. Ambiance and service were nice (arrival aside) and appreciated the soundproofing on the ceiling to moderate dining noise. Cliente very diverse - dress ranged from business casual to tank top, man bun and visor. They have stiff competition from a couple of other restaurants in the area that are closer to home for us which is makes it less likely for us to repeat our visit.
Very good food and ambiance. My only disappointment was the inability of the chef to alter my entree to accommodate my keto-type diet by removing the starch from the course. It was made fairly clear by the server that it was “their way or the highway.”
Love Fortify. The food is wonderfully prepared, unique combinations, beautiful presentation. The service is excellent, noise level was great this evening, though can get lively at times.
Excellent service and food and management stop by table to ask about experience
We dine at Fortify regularly and have never been disappointed. The food is always superb and the services is excellent. We love taking out-of-town guests to Fortify because we know it will always be a great experience.
Service not up to usual standards. Took waitress too long on drinks, had to ask another server for bread. Annoying.
Food was delicious, as usual.
I love this restaurant - probably my favorite in the area. Service is out of this world, food is amazing and good wine list. This is a restaurant you would expect to find in a major metro area.
Awesome food and service. Met a lot of friendly locals. Loved it.
Everyone in my party thought the meals were exceptional. The ambiance was fantastic and service by Jeremy was outstanding. Came to this restaurant two nights in a row it was so good and we'll definitely be back. What a gem for Clayton.
We live this place!
It is a favorite. Food, drinks and service are outstanding!!!
We try to carve out time for dinner here anytime we pass through. This time we specifically came and stayed overnight in town to have dinner there and celebrate our anniversary. It was fantastic. Love their fried green tomatoes. Everything that comes out of their kitchen is beautiful and most importantly, delicious!!!
Every staff member there makes you feel so welcome. I wish to especially thank the hostess, Morgan for all she did to make our dinner feel like we were the only ones there. She and our precious server Katie, pulled off a huge surprise for us that really made our 27th anniversary more than memorable.
Can’t wait to return.
Best meal we had in N Georgia. Seated quickly, attended to by a lovey, tall server who was very charming and professional.
Food was beautifully presented, portions were generous. Apple and caramel ice cream was delicious.
The modern decor set off the food beautifully.
On vacation in Clayton for first time had a wonderful evening and dinner. Sea scallops were awesome, atmosphere was very appealing with great service, owner extremely accommodating. Would highly recommended dining there.
