Believe me, we tried. What’s funny is, we’ve chatted with several other couples who we met on the train, and we run into around the same touristy places. I asked them if they found any good places to eat, and nobody has. We finally got a good meal at an Irish Pub in Delonega today, but not Blue Ridge.

The shops are good, the train is good, the people are nice, but the food is the pits.

Fightingtown (bar food), Harvest on Main (chef driven), Southern Charm (meat and veggies) are each popular and well regarded restaurants for what they do. I could keep naming more good restaurants, but if you're unable to find good food at a restaurant in Blue Ridge, my best advice is that you have to get more than 100 yards off of 515 to get past the Burger King and the Arbys.

It is possible to pin a thread but it would only be one thread and there would be all sorts of topics in one thread; therefore it might not be that useful. The Administrator limits us to two pins per forum.

I won’t mention names, but we inadvertently chose two restaurants owned by the same group. Another couple went to Southern Charm, and it was fine, but not remarkable. I’m not interested in “home cooking.” I get that at home. If we were here longer, we would certainly try other restaurants and surely something would be OK. Someone said Sue’s Burgers were good. We had hoped for fresh trout somewhere, but nowhere we went offered it.

Go East.... Try Jim's Smokin Que south of Blairsville on Hwy 19. Some terrific BBQ!! The SawMill Place has wonderful breakfast. For Cuban you can't beat Dan's Grill just north on 19 from the BP/Duncan Donuts in Blairsville.

And for trout.... you might try The Flying Trout. Admittedly I've never been there, but I checked and they do have Trout on the menu. They are off Copperhead Parkway in Blairsville as well.

I always go to Mike’s in Ellijay. It’s good homestyle food and the people are very friendly, not touristy at all. They serve whole fried trout.

Sue’s burgers are awesome! Joe’s BBQ as well. Love Harvest on Main. Fighting town is pretty good, too. Is Christy Lee’s still there?

Dillard House in Dillard, Georgia (not far from Tallulah Falls and the North Carolina State line)

Smith House in Dalonaga, Georgia (just off the old court house square)

Both of these restaurants are "Family style" where huge quantities of luscious southern cooking (everything from fried chicken to countless fresh vegetables) are brought to your table with limitless refills. I will say that between the two, I prefer Dillard House over the Smith House by a hair. Both definitely take out Southern Charm of Blue Ridge by a mile.

If Hilton Head/Bluffton/Beaufort can’t get its own forum, I doubt North Georgia could. Sumter SC has a huge thread in the S.C. forum, but isn’t put in Columbia SC area sub forum, I’d love to know how each area gets one though. Maybe it’s luck of the draw.

Edit: For whoever told me in a rep comment that Sumter is not in Columbia. I am aware. My sister lives there, it is about 35-40 miles and 45 min to an hour East. However, Sumter is not big enough to be a forum on its own. And when most people think of Sumter, Columbia is often lumped in. As they are pretty close connected by USHwy 378.
