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

Celebrating our anniversary with friends. Glen-Ella Springs Inn Restaurant was recommended by a local. She warned me that it was kind of 'remote' but I did not know that we would go through a creek on the dirt road to get there! Google Maps took us a round-about way but I guess it added to the ambience. By the way,... More

Sit outside by the amazing garden. Crab cakes are great. Steak was very good. Breakfasts are divine. My daughter had the best creme Brule she's ever had

We saw this on ta and couldn't believe the reviews. So we decided to go try it out, my girlfriend and I wanted a nice romantic dinner and this place did not disappoint. We dressed up slightly (I wore khakis and button up shirt, she wore dress and her pearls) we could have dressed less but we didn't feel over... More

This place is charming. The food is fantastic, we really cannot bring to mind a better or more romantic dinner. The crab cake appetizer was delicious. We loved everything about our visit and would highly recommend it to others. Our serve, Katie, was delightful.
