Lake Rabun Hotel and Restaurant:
Award-Winning, Farm-Fresh Dining
Cuisine prepared at the Lake Rabun Hotel & Restaurant is American, brushed by world influences that range from Middle Eastern and French to down-home Southern. It’s unique and adventurous, with ample selections for even a vegan vegetarian.
Executive chef Jamie Allred has introduced the Farm to Table dining movement to the mountains of North Georgia with flair and creativity. He uses and involves regional farms and farmers during the entire growing season. Featured Farmer Thursdays bring a selected farmer into the restaurant with his or her produce to acquaint our guests with uses and growing practices, while the chef prepares small plates featuring delicious recipes that use a variety of fruits and vegetables as well as other produce supplied by the farmer.
The restaurant also features an outstanding wine list that offers wines from local vineyards, micro-brews, and a full bar.

“What a special find! A wonderfully evocative 1920s inn with original furnishings, a beautiful mountain setting at North Georgia’s lovely Lake Rabun, a renowned chef with a commitment to locally grown, healthy and delicious cuisine, and a staff that can’t do enough for you. Don’t miss the shrimp and grits, local greens salad, pumpkin seed encrusted mountain trout, and stuffed chicken special.”
