Ate there on 10/10/17 with a party of 5. Everyone enjoyed their meals. The tomato basil soup was the "star of the show". The ham & turkey club was great! Definitely a must visit in Ellejay.

Hubby and I were exploring north Georgia and stopped for lunch. It is very quaint and inviting. I had a very good grilled cheese sandwich. My husband had a beef and pepper jack sandwich. Service was excellent.

...next to the Blue Ridge Olive Oil Company in the old theater. Bigger space and bigger kitchen and the ability to serve alcohol the reason for the move. Let's hope the food quality stays the same.

The lines are long for a reason. The food is great. Try to get there early so you don't have to wait as long as we did. The wait staff was great and table and chairs comfortable. Highly recommend.

Have only eaten in Ellijay the one time at Cantaberry. It is more of a laid back sandwich shop, not what I believe would sere your needs. I would continue to search on line to look for something else.
