The food is so very good - great chef. The vegan vegetable soup, fancy grilled cheese & moon burger were especially good. The prices are reasonable. Ambience is really nice.

We were visiting from Indiana and enjoyed brunch here and then when the wait was too long at another local restaurant decided to eat here again for dinner. It was delicious. The soups were wonderful, the lobster macaroni delicious, crab cakes great, meatloaf very comforting and the drinks well done! The service was wonderful, we were a larger party with... More

By the looks of the stage and the posters for musicians, this is probably a great place for live music, but for lunch? Not so much. We got into town in time for a late lunch and this looked cute, so we decided to try it. Our waitress carefully explained everything they DIDN'T have that day (meatloaf not available, chicken...

My daughter and I ate at the Crimson Moon for a pre-hike lunch. She had been for breakfast or brunch and wanted to try it again. We arrived about 11:30 and the place was pretty empty. Our server was very sweet and attentive our entire meal. I had the Whistle Stop burger and my daughter had the grilled cheese. My... More

I RARELY write bad reviews but this one is exceptional. Food was just adequate once it finally arrived, more than an hour after we ordered and after begging for status and water a couple of times. Our waiter seemed barely bothered by the delay. My order was screwed up but we were so hungry we ate, quickly paid and left.... More

The cafe is a nice place to visit. It is in an old store or warehouse from long ago. The staff was friendly enough. They have a bar and serve beer. One item is a 3 cheese grilled cheese with tomatoes, lettuce, etc. I asked for bacon on the sandwich. Oops, no bacon. They did offer to get some bacon.... More

Although we have tried many other good restaurants in Dahlonega over the past couple days, this was my favorite...should be much higher than #16 on Trip Advisor. We had the fondu, crab cakes and grilled cheese sandwich, all were excellent. For those traveling with kids, they also had quite a few kids menu selections as well. It has a quirky... More

We stumbled into the Crimson Moon on a weekday afternoon looking for a little local flavor for lunch. We were the only ones there at first and loved the rustic charm of the place. Husband ordered a wonderful burger with bacon, cheese and caramelized onions. Juicy and luscious. His regular fries were cooked crisp and full of flavor. I had... More
