The food is very good...FRESH Southern cooking. The ambiance can either be fabulous or "why did I come here?"...depends on the individual. Regardless, it is definitely worth a visit.

The history of Elliot's racing is all over the restaurant. I would recommend the burger! Service was good and we would return:)

We visited this place over 20 years ago and was in the area so had to go back. Nothing has changed! Food is still as good as we remembered, still the same atmosphere, a friendly place in a small town honoring NASCAR great Bill Elliott and upcoming Chase Elliott. Take your time - enjoy and don't be in a rush!

Fries are passable. Atmosphere is NASCAR. It's fun to hang out around the square. Just order the burger and enjoy!

Been going here for years. Get the Bully Burger, some fries and wash it down with some of the best sweet tea ever! Don't be in a hurry- enjoy the slower pace around these parts or you will be frustrated! Good breakfast also, & friendly service.

I visited this little spot while I was in Dawsonville for some training. I had a hamburger and fresh cut fries the first day. The burger was cooked right in front of me on the griddle. The burger was fresh and really good. The fries we're cooked perfect. The second day I had hamburger steak with gravy, homemade mashed potatoes,... More

Good food and local ambiance. Service was slow the day I went. But hey, I wasn't in a hurry. You got to gave chili dogs at the pool room. I recommend sitting at the bar.

I revisited the Dawsonville Pool Room with a friend who had never been there. The Pool Room is like a shrine to Nascar driver Bill Elliott. There are hoods, front ends, and tires on display from Elliott's race cars. My friend had a hamburger and hotdog with fries. I had a hamburger steak, fries, and slaw. The food was VERY... More

We got several items to go and it was made to order. The bacon cheese burgers were really good, the fresh cut fries I could eat all day, and the onion rings were crisp. The decor was neat to see for the history of the place. We will def eat here again whe. We are in town.
