Website doesn't say anything about the restaurant being closed permanently. We walked by and it was locked up & dark. Not sure why they closed, when I visited last year, I really liked it.

Excellent food, interesting menu, good service, reasonable prices. Conveniently located just off the square in Dahlonega. Interesting little shop next door for pre- or post-dinner shopping.

I had dinner with a party of 20 to begin a weekend of wedding celebration. The staff were courteous and patient. They did not hurry us at all. The food was wonderful! The restaurant was eclectic and very cool place! Will return!

The quality of the food was very poor considering the price. We had duck and pork chops that were both over cooked. Would not go back.
