We were here for Anniversary/Valentine's. Everything excellent for the occasion. Intimate and warm setting, wait staff neat and attentive, food outstanding. High on our list of special, out-of-the-way places. Don't be turned off by the dirt road for the last 1/2 mile. Trust me, you won't be disappointed.
The restaurant at Glen Ella Springs attracts diners who are not necessarily hotel guests, which says a lot. It's a fine, intimate and upscale establishment in an area where there are few upscale choices. The menu is not broad, but they seem to have dependable choices which bring the repeat business needed to survive. My spouse had the trout entrée and was delighted. There's a small but good wine list, as well. And it's all set on a handsome piece of land, about 10 minutes off State Hwy 441.
Consistently Fabulous! Always perfect meals and great service!
I have spent many of my birthdays here and always a great treat! Food and service is always wonderful!
It is always a pleasure to have dinner at the restaurant at Glen Ella Springs Inn. Great food. Super nice people. I hope to go back soon.
Outstanding service and the food was excellent as always!
The food and service were excellent. We had a ten-year-old with us and they had a children's menu that was perfect for him.
The venue is lovely and quiet.
Thanks, Glen-Ella for a memorable dinner.
I enjoyed a celebrating my birthday here with friends..I started with a yummy baked brie as an app.. and lamb chops as my entree.. very tasty.. My friend had the market salad which she said was delicious and the shrimp and grits that was ok..I didn't get pics of the rest.. we didn't have room for dessert.. They offer breads with butter with your meal
The service was not good at all. New Year’s Eve and our server had 1 table and it was still bad. Would not go back.
The tenderloin and vegetables was excellent however the risotto was way over cooked (hard and crunchy).
All was great - server used term "we" a lot i.e. "have we decided what we're going to order" & "do we have any questions".....don't care for that. Everything else was good.
I liked the food better previously. Some choices left me unimpressed, for example the lamb was delicious but adding maple syrup to sweet potatoes made them inedible.
I also found the warm pickles salsa on the mahi-mahi odd. Some of the breakfast foods seemed amateurish, one morning there was an “egg roulade” which turned out to be over cooked, unseasoned omelette, cut into pinwheels. Why? The “Duch apple” pancakes had diced almost flavorless apples in syrup, made me want to go in the kitchen and look around for a lemon to juice and zest, this did not appear to be the work of a chef. Also, great apples are easy to find in North Georgia, these were so not.
The onion soup is still good, the trout still tastes fresh, and I still like the squash casserole, but the white rice they serve with several dishes is just not wort the carbs or calories. I should not be so anxious to fix my meals when I spend this much to have some cook for me.
Service was fabulous, Beth is adorable.
Thank you for taking such great care of my parents for their anniversary. You made them feel special and they very much enjoyed the food. What great place!
Everything was great
The food was outstanding and the service was too. It's a special place and a great 'go to' for any special occasion! If you don't have a special occasion to celebrate; then just go there to treat yourself to an amazing dining experience! Totally worth the drive!
Overall amazing. Just a little louder than normal due to large group. But understandable this town of year for holidays
Food was delicious. Very nice ambiance.
The handicapped parking was not close as I would have felt comfortable with.
Our server was very nice, checked on us but not intrusive.
Be advised that the last mile was an unpaved road but the dining experience was worth it.
Great atmosphere, great service. The wait staff are always friendly. The presentation on the food is impressive. Food quality is outstanding and the atmosphere is inviting, romantic, and quiet. Highly recommend Glenn Ella Springs. We have been there many times, It never disappoints.
At the end of a beautiful drive through the forest on a gravel road, we found a well- preserved rustic inn with exceptional food! Maybe the best food in the region!
The service, food, and lovely atmosphere were just perfect ! Grace, our server, was delightful!
