The restaurant at Glen-Ella Springs Inn is open to the public and inn guests beginning at 5:30 pm most evenings. Offering one of the finest dining experiences in North Georgia, the restaurant presents award-winning cuisine in a rustic, yet elegant, country atmosphere. Recognized as one of the Top Dining Destinations in the state of Georgia by GeorgiaTrend Magazine since 2004, Glen-Ella Springs Inn has long been recognized as a north Georgia favorite.
Guests enjoy our many signature dishes such as Sautéed Jumbo Shrimp with peppers and andouille sausage in a smoked tomato sauce served along side our fried Parmesan grit cake, or the herb encrusted New Zealand Rack of Lamb accompanied with a Jalapeño mint sauce, maple whipped sweet potatoes and fresh green beans. Trout, steak and Macadamia crusted chicken with a Dijon cranberry sauce are also regular menu items. Nightly specials are typically seafood inspired.
Chef Bill Wilder takes the lead as Executive Chef at Glen-Ella Springs Inn. Bill worked in the hospitality and service industry for more than 20 years mastering practically every facet of a restaurant before deciding to attend Le Cordon Bleu where he graduated with honors in 2005. He continued to advance his culinary skills working with top rated restaurateurs such as The Fifth Group’s Bold American Catering and The Peasant Corporation both in Atlanta, GA.
Bill came to work at Glen-Ella in January 2012 and brings not only a highly developed ability, but a strong desire to retain the very best of Glen-Ella Springs while continuing to introduce guests to new culinary experiences through his nightly specials. Being an avid golfer, his time away from the kitchen is usually spent on the golf course, with music and comedy running a close second to his favorite past time activities.
