This was a happen up for us as we had just left the road over Patterson Gap and through the Persimmon Community. Just pulled in and found a very nice place to have a light lunch. People weren't totally friendly but I found out later that they catered to the lake customers which are relatively wealthy. Blackened Grilled Chicken sandwiches... More

All these reviews for Burton grocery don't belong here. Though it is a great place to grab a bite to eat, so is the cafe bar! Good food, cold beer, great locals and pleasant visitors. Truly a Rabun icon and 60's original. Pool tables and jukebox. The last of the dives, for sure. Check them out.

The people in this establishment are truly the best! My tire busted while I was heading home to Atlanta from this magical lake, after visiting a dear friend. The gentlemen in this bar (the owner amongst them) stopped what they were doing to assist me. I was truly in need and when I attempted to offer them a little something... More

We used the app Urban Spoon to find this place as we were leaving Dick's Creek Falls. The food was pretty good with good portions, There is a bar next door so don't get confused with that. You will want to go to the grocery. You get your drinks in the store, They have a pretty good selection of wine... More

First and foremost, the name of the restaurant is Lake Burton Grille and Grocery, so hopefully folks are not confusing this new and improved (after a recent fire) spot with the next door bar. Service is great, food is simple, but elegant. The fish tacos were superb and the chef was smoking prime rib outside in the pit while we... More
