DAHLONEGA RESTAURANTS

Doesn't get much better than this!  Enjoy delicious Cajun food while perched on the front porch, high above Dahlonega's town square.  A great place to sip wine and watch the sun set...

CONNIE'S ICE CREAM PARLOR & SANDWICH SHOP  

Sweet tea?  Check.  Friendly service?  Check.  Hand-dipped ice cream cones?  Yes - just don't be surprised if there's a line out the door in warmer weather!

CORKSCREW CAFE

One of Kranberry Kathy's favorites.  Located right next door to the Holly Theater, so you better make reservations if it's a show night!  Their Pork Chop dinner is to-die-for:  triple nut crusted with a fig demi-glaze, served with mashed potato du jour and asparagus.  Yes, please!

DAHLONEGA DESSERTERY

If you're in need of an early-morning coffee, this is where you need to go.  If you're currently dieting, this is where you do NOT need to go.  Their desserts are downright sinful. 

DANTE'S ON THE SQUARE

A bright and sunny place to eat while shopping on the square.  Delicious Carribean-flavor fare.  Everything from crab fritters to  yummy 'reggae burgers'...

DUMOND'S PATIO GRILLE

Barbecue.  Delicious Barbecue.  Nuff said.

GUSTAVO'S PIZZERIA

Remodeled, expanded, added a bar...and now serving liquor! Gustavo's pizza is downright delicious - but better call ahead and make sure they're open (they've been known to have oven issues and closed early).

OYSTER BAR 

Coastal North-Carolina cuisine with a relaxing beach-y decor.  There's always a game on the tv in the bar upstairs - love that!  Beer + wine only.

SHENANIGANS IRISH PUB

Drink a Guinness with the locals!  This is THE place to be if you want to chill out and eat good Irish pub food.  Relaxing outdoor covered patio and open-air deck.  Coolest wait-staff in town.

THE CRIMSON MOON

Wanna eat a meal in one of Dahlonega's oldest buildings?  The same building where Zac Brown used to play, and where you currently might find Shawn Mullins or the Indigo Girls performing?  Thought so.

THE FRONT PORCH

Another great view of the Dahlonega square, open only during lunch and closed during the winter months.  This is the place to take young kids for a hot dog or grilled cheese.

THE SMITH HOUSE

A Dahlonega restaurant classic located in a historic building above a recently discovered secret gold shaft!  Family style seating - that means you sit at big ole' tables with strangers.  Southern-style meals, served up in bowls, and passed around from person-to-person.

SMOKIN GOLD BARBECUE

Brisket is to die for - it'll make you want to slap yo mama!

SMOKIN DAVE'S BARBECUE 

Another great Dahlonega Barbecue restaurant.  What does Kranberry Kathy think is their best dish?  The Pig Stickers:  a particular cut of pork that is very flavorful, tender and without alot of fat...

SUSHI MOTO

Just as you're beginning to climb the hill as you enter D-town in one of the very first little shopping centers on the left is a sushi restaurant that is really, really good.  For real.  You would not expect it in a North Georgia Mountain town, but trust Kranberry Kathy - it's delish:
