Hiking in fall…wineries in winter…boating in spring…waterfalls in summer. There are amazing adventures awaiting you in Blairsville. But regardless of the season, you need to eat!
Here are 13 of Blairsville, Ga restaurants that are outstanding for all different cuisines. Which one is your favorite?
Most Unexpected – Nani’s Restaurant
Looking for Cuban food, then head to Nani’s Restaurant. You’ll find a fusion between Cuban and Puerto Rican, but with a Spanish twist. Lunch and Dinner are served Tues – Sat. For lunch, get the Cuban sandwich topped with bread that comes straight from Ybor City. Delish! And on Friday and Saturday nights, ask for the special.
Local’s Hangout – Hole In The Wall
This is the place we always make time to visit! You’ll want to make it a tradition, too. Breakfast is served all day – the country fried steak and eggs are so delicious! And the kiddo breakfast is less than $5. Planning a day of hiking on a Saturday? Then you’ll be ready for the prime rib special that night (Fridays, too.) Bring cash – no cards accepted.
Food With A Theme – Aviator Café
Clouds on the walls and airplanes hanging from the ceiling, this is great for aero fans. Plus, the soups, salads, wraps and sandwiches are all made with fresh ingredients.
Weekday Breakfast – The Sawmill Place
We love that this restaurants seeks to use local produce! You can grab lunch here, but we love it for breakfast – a BIG breakfast. My family loves the made-from-scratch biscuits with gravy, and bacon. Oh – and the baked apples! Go early in the morning or you’ll need to wait – but it will be worth it.
Coffee – Cabin Coffee Company
You can certainly grab more than coffee, but we love this place for a mid-afternoon pick-me-up. You pick your roast – South American, African, Indonesian…and then select your drink of choice. Don’t miss the cold brews, too.
Salad – G&G Bakery & Café
Donuts, coffee, sandwiches and more…but we love the salads. Taco salad, Reuben salad, Greek salad, Italian salad…and the list goes on. I’m partial to the Oriental salad, and I love a half serving paired with a bowl of soup. Selections change daily – love the chicken noodle.
Burger – Copeland’s
First – pick your patty (because chicken and veggie burgers are also available) and then pick your style. Sure, you can get a Classic (with cheese and such) but why not try something new? How about The Georgia, with broccoli slaw and BBQ sauce? Or The Guac with queso, guac, tomatoes and mayo? There are also salads, sandwiches, steaks, and so much more. And my favorite? The full bar!
Pizza – Sicily’s
Open on Sundays, which is a plus – this is a great place for pizza and salads. The locals love it here, too. Be prepared for affordable prices, large servings, and a super friendly staff.
BBQ – Jim’s Smokin’ Que
This is a great stop for BBQ! We love the PIG-a-NIC family packs that you can take with you on the lake or to your cabin. They’re only open Thurs, Fri and Sat so plan accordingly…and when the weather is cooperating, you can work off those ribs by playing an affordable round of mini golf right on site.
Seafood – Mike’s Seafood Market & Grill
Forget the white tablecloths and fancy wait staff…counter service here is quick and easy and keeps the prices down on great seafood. Shrimp, fish, hushpuppies…all delicious with hearty portions. Not a seafood lover? No worries – steak and chicken also make the menu here.
Italian – Michaelee’s Italian Life Caffe
Gorgeous food with hearty “Italian Grandma” selections…you’re going to love it. Beware, though…you’ll love it even more if you know it’s BYOB. Bring your own bottle for the full Italian experience. There are great chicken, beef and seafood options – just make sure you also get a pasta…nothing can compare to their homemade selections.
Sweet Treats – The Cellar
OK – maybe we’re cheating a little. The Cellar is part of Michaelee’s…but it’s in the basement. Try the espresso and desserts, and don’t leave without an infused olive oil or balsamic vinegar. Homemade fudge…ice cream…homemade sodas…wow!
For Young Kids – Rib Country
GREAT BBQ for the whole family, plus kids under 4 eat free! Oh that pulled pork – great for lunch. Hungry after a day of hiking? Try the Feast for Two…pulled pork, beef, half a chicken AND ribs..plus the fixins!
Note sure what else to do while you’re there? We’ve got answers!
