    Hello, Great article and information here. First of all, I think that Blue Ridge is a beautiful place to visit.

    I love Italian food, so my favorite on this list is Rustic Restaurant. Also, it has a high review rate from other customers. As well, I like to have a meal at Carroll’s Barbeque and enjoy the grill foods.  

    I think that all these restaurant recommendations are of good quality and services. 

    Thank you for sharing


  2. Nance says:

    These locations look unique and gorgeous – are any accessible by public transport or is a car needed? Mystic mountain pizza looks fab with veggie option and live events – I am on the next plane to the US -lol  The Blue Ridge Boat Dock and bar  has breathtaking views .All in all the restaurants in this region offer a wide menu and beautiful backdrops . 

    • Alyce says:

      Hi Nance, There is not a formal system of public transportation in North Georgia, but if you stay at a location in Blue Ridge, you should easily be able to walk to many of the places on the list. Enjoy!

  3. Page says:

    Blue Ridge Georgia seems like a beautiful place with a lot to offer. I have driven through Georgia myself but never really had the time to explore around to see all it has to offer. After reading your article I am very intrigued to get back to Georgia and giving myself time to explore Blue Ridge and all it has to offer. I wrote down a couple of these dining places that caught my eye when I do go. Great informative article! Thank you very much.

    I am curious how far of a drive it is from Blue Ridge to Atlanta.  I have a cousin in Atlanta that I will be visiting and we’d like to do our own thing for a week before we visit here.  I’ve always wanted to visit the area.  It would be a longer drive no matter what as we live in Florida.  I think given what we are looking to do, the Harvest on Main sounds just like where we will go for dinner.  Sounds great!

    • Alyce says:

      Hi Leahrae, Atlanta and Blue Ridge are about a 90-minute drive from each other. It’s always nice (and easy) to see both towns with a quick day trip, but in my opinion, it’s even better if you can stay a bit longer in the mountains! Enjoy!!

  5. Abel says:

    Thank you for sharing these Blue Ridge restaurant options. I have been planning to spend three days in North Georgia and I’ll need to book at least 2 business dinners. It’s helpful to see there are more than two options that will suit the occasion. It’s critical to be able to get reservations for dinner when business is involved! Thank you!!
