I couldn't say enough about how amazing the food was. You get a full course meal (drink and desert included) for the price. It is a must go to restaurant! The staff were all friendly and the waiter/waitresses were great and always taking care of you. I'll be back, for sure!

High prices for canned food on plastic plates. If you go, visit the bathroom!! They were trying to expand and came across an old mining shaft.

I'm sorry to say but we use no plastic plates and all our vegetables does not come from a can. I think the kitchen staff who peels and preps all the vegetable with thank you for such dis-kind words. All our dinnerware is stoneware. Not sure where you ate at that had plastic plates?? More

What a nice southern meal! Everyone had options and were pleased. It is right off the square and an easy walk after shopping.

Anytime I'm in North Georgia I make a point to take my family to The Smith House. The food is to die for and the service is even better! Bottomless sides, and the dessert, oh my.

Slow down and enjoy a family style meal. Food is country cooking at its best! Service is friendly and speedy. You will not leave here hungry! The atmosphere is welcoming and beautiful. Great lunch or dinner spot. Fried Chicken and Fried Okra are the best!

Was quoted a room rate and when we checked out the price was much higher. Front desk advised that was a week day rate and not Friday rate. However we reserved for Friday for rate that was quoted for that night. The room was nice and clean with nice amenities.

Famous for our all-you-can eat family style meals. Country vegetable and fried chicken is everyone's favorite. Stay in our historic inn and visit our historic town square of Dahlonega where the first Gold Rush was located. The Smith House is locked one block from the square.
