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, Claudia Nesbit, 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."

Josh (customer interaction and wine suggestions) and Beth (customer service and attention to detail) are stellar. Our server, Valerie, was attentive. There was an issue with us getting charged for someone else's two glasses of wine which I did not notice on Saturday night. A call to Beth totally rectified the wrong charge. The food pairings are unparalleled. The service is very upscale. The best of the best in Lakemont

Had reservations for 8:30pm, arrived 8:15pm was told we wouldnt be seated before 8:30pm. Completely understandable, but seating us at 9:00pm not understandable. No reason was given why. We ordered our drinks and crab cake. Drinks came quickly, shortly after our crab cake arrived. We began to eat and my wife notices a hair in the base of the crab cake. Our food took around 45 minutes to get to the table. It took so long that the waiter comped my wifes wine. My wife inquired to the waiter if we were suppose to receive bread with our meal like the other tables had gotten, she with a suprised face said, "You didn't get your bread?" Well the bread comes in a wicker basket and there isn't one on the table. We then ordered dessert and it was really good. Our experience was way under what I was expecting, the general manager came to our table 4 times and didn't notice the bread missing but looked at my wifes phone to see the picture she was looking at. Maybe they could pay more attention to what going on with the service and food. We won't return.

We celebrated our 25th Wedding Anniversary at the Hotel and had a fabulous time. Everything was more than we could have expected. Our room was very quaint and comfortable, just our style. The common areas were warm and inviting, but the restaurant and food were off the charts. Our anniversary meal was superb, and everyone made us feel special on our special occasion. We will be back again very soon.

New chef just joined the staff. Typically menus change when a new chef steps in. Waiting to see. Menu did not offer choice of sides with entre’s, but manager indicated that would return to menu. New chef has strong resume. High hopes.

Wonderful food and atmosphere. We were staying the night at the B&B. What a treat to be able to walk downstairs and experience such a lovely dinner. Friendly staff and amazing food. Highly recommend both the B&B and the restaurant.
