We agree with a couple of other reviews that said the quality of food has really gone done and certainly not as good as it has been in the past. We ate there Sunday for brunch as we have done in the past and all four of us were so disappointed. Two of us had to send ours back as... More

This was our favorite place to go whenever we visited Dahlonega. We brought a lot of friends here when they visited us from out of town for lunch and dinner. We went there with family yesterday for lunch and sorry to say but the food has really gone down hill. Ordered the chicken salad sandwich as I did once before.... More

We had shrimp and grits, Thai pasta, and two breakfast plates. Everyone enjoyed their brunch meal. I think the shrimp and grits could have been accompanied with a biscuit, or some bread. The decor is pleasant.

We wanted a Sunday Brunch after working at The Holly Theater next door. The Southern Breakfast on the menu hit the spot! The patio was cozy and filled with aromas beyond imagination. We will be back🎃

After a long day at Amicalola Falls, we were tired, hungry and needing to refuel. We didn't want to spend a lot of money and decided on the Corkscrew. Absolutely love the design of the indoor and outdoor spaces. I would have given a higher rating if the tuna dish I ordered had fresh fruit rather than the mandarin oranges... More

This used to be one of our favorite restaurants but the last two times the food quality was not up to par. Last night guaranteed we will not return. They were out to tuna and salmon. My husband and I ordered the braised short ribs. There were two pieces about 3" by 1" and looked beautiful. However all 4 of... More

I've only sat downstairs, outside. After going down a steep staircase, the patio is fine. The food was good, but I pity the poor waitstaff bringing food down those stairs. Ours ended up all over the stairs, and had to be made again! Keep the menu fresh, as in subsequent visits, the freshness is disappearing....

Nothing special except the prices which were extremely high. The server was nice but servers had to go up and down steep stairs to get the food from the kitchen. I would not go back
