Smith House

84 S. Chestatee St., Dahlonega, GA - (706) 867-7000
The Smith House is an elbow-to-elbow eatfest. Tables are communal, shared by local folks and visitors, who all behave as though they were at a family party, passing platters back and forth, chattering happily about the delicious food. Count on fried chicken, supplemented by Brunswick stew or catfish and hushpuppies.

Collard greens are a vegetable I wish we could get back north of the Mason-Dixon line.  They are especially good here at The Smith House.

Only one dessert is available on any given day at Smith House.  On this visit it was a simple piece of strawberry shortcake.
