The chef did a great job without having any advance warning that we are vegan. They were very accommodating, made it no big deal, and came up with something delicious, while our non-vegan friends raved about the rest of the menu and the fact that the restaurant has their favorite beer (Celtic?). Service was fantastic. Cute, quaint, nicely tucked away... More

Best dinner and breakfast I have had in a long time. Lamb was fantastic but the sides were just as fabulous! Trout was also killer. You get a bunch of food so beware when you order. Breakfast at the inn was amazing as well. The lightest scrambled eggs and waffles I have had in along time. This is a true... More

We like to escape the Thanksgiving craziness and come to Glen-Ella Springs. We stay for a long weekend and enjoy dinner in their restaurant each night. We especially love the rack of lamb and trout. They also make yummy homemade ice cream as a dessert option. Lovely place, wonderful inn keepers, nice staff, and delicious food!

Located down gravel roads, so don't think you're lost. Lodge type building with pretty garden in the backyard. Our group ordered the macadamia encrusted chicken and rack of lamb. Both were prepared and presented perfectly. Our server was excellent and very attentive.

Quality and selection of food rivals that of cosmopolitan areas including Atlanta and New York. The service is superb and at the same time relaxed.

We've eaten at Glen-Ella 5-6 times now and each visit has been extremely enjoyable. We were concerned when it changed owners a few years ago but the kitchen certainly hasn't suffered. A recent fall evening featured really perfect rack of lamb, exactly the doneness ordered and a salmon entree ditto. Glen-Ella is remote, but a viable destination to a beautiful... More
