Found this place by accident decades ago when it was just a gas station and grocery store. Owner was so nice. Went back every time we were in the area. Since it has become a diner, we love their burgers and fries. Always great service and food.

The worse restaurant we have ever experienced. Waited over an hour for a grilled ham and cheese with soup. When it came, it did not have cheese. Send it back and 10 minutes later we got it with cold cheese. It was supposed to be grilled. Send it back and 20 minutes later got it back with, of course, cold... More

Came for breakfast today and while I have no real complaints at all, it was just okay. Nice enough country place, if they had one or two more folks working, it would have made all the difference. The young lady serving, running the cash register, getting drinks, (doing it all) was doing her best. The owner needs to step up... More

This small country café is well known to locals and visitors to the north Georgia mountains around Helen and Lake Burton. Great breakfast offering with delicious biscuits and gravy but they stop serving breakfast at 11:15 and we were 15 minutes late. I got the Cuban sandwich and wife got a BLT. Both were very good. Restaurant only seats about... More

What a quaint little eatery! The young lady running the store was simply delightful. We enjoyed burgers and handmade milkshakes. Try the caramel macchiato with chocolate ice cream! Fantastic. So glad we happened upon this rare gem.

We were at Sunburst Stables and the tour included lunch at Old Batesville General Store and Restaurant. It is a must stop if you are in the area. Great old-time charm, food, and service.

A limited, basic menu--but they do a good job of preparing the food on the menu. Fast, friendly service and prepared just the way you ask for it. My wife recommends the chicken salad sandwich. We were there for lunch but I understand breakfast is very good and served until 11:30.

Cute little restaurant/store. Good service, good food, reasonable prices, nice location. My wife and I stay within 10 miles of here on our trips to North GA, and we stop in for breakfast at least once while in the area. Close to several scenic/tourist areas. I would recommend stopping in earlier for breakfast as it can get busy.

We were driving from Atlanta to Asheville and needed to stop for lunch. We ended up stopping here :) It was a weekday in August, and there was no other customers. We were served quickly and the food was just fine - basic but tasty. We had grilled cheese and fries, and my husband had the fish. We had never... More
