    The food was cold. Our table was not ready per our reservation time. And they would not make hush puppies because they had to close the kitchen down 45 minutes prior to closing. Would not recommend this restaurant. The chicken and dumplings was more of a mush, not tasty.

    Upon arrival, we waited over 10 minutes for a person to come to the HOSTESS stand (and we had reservations)... and the guy who finally seated us clearly came out of the kitchen. (This was 2:00pm on a Thursday, not dinner rush). We had looked at the restaurant menu online, which doesn't show prices. Much to our dismay, when we got the menus once we were finally seated, we realized that this restaurant was WAY overpriced compared to ones in downtown Blue Ridge. The food was marginal. For two people in our party their food order was not correct, and the waitress did not notice it until it was brought to her attention. To her credit, she take it away and make it right once it was pointed out. I would not recommend going here. There was a pizza place across the hall that smelled delicious. I regret that we didn't turn around and leave after no-one came to the hostess stand at the 5 minute mark.

    Nice place to eat but service was slow and it was not to busy. Food came over cooked and server did not show back up to send back in time. The chicken on the Alfredo was powder dry. Salads we great.

    We had reservations. Went to order our food and was told the grill was not working and that we would have to order something fried. We ordered them for our food about 20 mins later. After receiving our food an order came out with foods we were told we couldn’t order due to the grill being broke. Service was pretty slow but our waitress was dealing with a group of ladies who seemed to be petty. We would probably give it another try but we were let down with having to order fried food. Bad timing I suppose. :/

    Food was good, however the service was extremely slow. It took 10 minutes for someone (not even our server) to take our drink order. Once we placed an order for food, we waited an additional 40 minutes. We were told because our order was behind a group of 8. Common sense should have told them to get other orders prepared instead of waiting for a party we weren’t even with. It killed all the time we had on our short layover for a train ride. Definitely not worth it.

    Not a great experience. We stopped here on our layover on the blue ridge railway. I made a reservation to be sure we would have plenty of time. Our food took over 40 minutes to arrive making us have to rush our eating so we didn’t miss the train back. When the food did finally come out, it wasn’t good. The French fries were the best part but other than that, it wasn’t good. One of us left with a massive stomach ache and none of the kids finished their meals because they didn’t have time. The server only came by our table a couple times so our drinks were empty and we were missing quite a few items.

    A beautiful spot right on the river in town is what keeps me coming back. Burra Burra has a comfortable casual atmosphere and the local typical food and service adds to its charm. Prices have gone up, as most restaurants seem to be doing lately.

    Lunch was delicious. I was a bit concerned because of our schedule and not knowing if we would get in and out in time to hop back on the train. But, everything clicked along just fine and we had time to spare. Seating, service, food arrival were all spot on. I had salmon and it was delicious and my Mom had shrimp and it was delish too. Definitely would go again and would recommend. Riley was our server, she was attentive and very personable!

    Our party of 4 arrived 15 minutes after opening and the whole inside of the restaurant was empty. As we proceeded to the host stand they told us that the whole restaurant was reserved… no explanation or anything. Then I went on my phone and made a reservation with open table and we were sat 30 minutes later. However upon arriving to our online reservation the host was very stand-offish and almost seemed mad that she had to give us a table. She sat there for a couple minutes just looking at the reservation and finally put us outside on the patio for a table big enough for 7 people. Our service was great our waitress was lovely but our initial experience was a train wreck. I suggest not going at 11:00 due to the train because if you’re not part of it they will deny you at the host stand. This was on a Sunday.

    We have been to Burra Burra many times and typically LOVE IT. This time we visited on Sunday, October 1 and it was very apparent that something was horribly wrong. The man in front of us in line was turned away because "every table was reserved". We had a reservation so we got seated, but there were MANY open tables and some were stacked with dirty dishes. (During our entire visit, the tables around us were empty) People were sending food back to the kitchen several times because it was undercooked. Food was being delivered to the wrong table and then delivered to another table. It took over an hour to get our food. The wait staff was clearly angry and frustrated. This visit was not a pleasant experience.

    The waitress was a delight. That is where it ends for me. I have lived here for 4 years. I have been to this restaurant several times. We were one of 2 tables at the time. The nachos are considerably smaller than they use to be. Ordered chicken on them for an additional $6. NO chicken on the nachos. The toppings were few and far between. Such a disappointment! I was looking forward to this but sadly would be hard pressed to return. For $16 a soggy plate of chips I could have prepared better at home.

    We took the Blue Ridge train to Mccaysville with plans for lunch and shopping. We paid $100/pp to ride in the premium car and do the 4 hour trip. We had reservations at 11:15. At 12:15 we still didn’t have our food. Once we got our food we literally had about 15 minutes to eat and get back to the train. We had no time to walk around or shop. The restaurant was not busy but we were told after an hour that a group of 20 came in right before we got there. Someone should have come out and told us and those around us that it was going to take that long so we could have had time to go elsewhere and still shop. Some groups around us were still waiting as we left and finally had to go without eating. I understand maybe they didn’t have enough help or a large order unplanned but let us know so we can adjust our plans. And no offer for give us our meal free or our appetizer free or even dessert to go. And we really wanted to have some of the desserts they offered. We will more than likely not go back here.

    Disappointed that they didn't have the normal fried pickles (they had spears not the regular sliced and totally different breading) . Server brought wrong beer to start. We eat at Burra Burra every time we go to blue ridge ga, but may try something different next time.

    Overall the food was way over priced. 5 of our 7 meals came out but the other 2 seemed to have been forgotten as we waited another 25 minutes before they arrived. The food lacked flavor and was not well cooked. The fires were the best thing we had on the table.

    Unfortunately, we never got to drink or eat anything. After being seated and requesting service from the hostess a couple of times, we ended up leaving after 30 minutes. Overall ambiance was typical to a nice riverside bar, and it wasn’t too noisy.

    If you rode the train, not enough time to eat here, we had reservations for 5, food was slow getting to us but it was busy but not packed, maybe short staffed? They had special $10.99 chicken strip plate, that was good value, loaded nachos were expensive $18.99, smash burger plates were good portion, again pricey..chips and salsa were just ok, fried pickles were ok and pricey... bathrooms were convenient,
