Went there on a warm Indian Summer night only to find out they closed the outside dining a week earlier (in October). A noticeable effort is made by the management to make sure everything is good with your dining experience. Wait Staff was friendly and prompt. Food is excellent. This has a Sports Bar and Grill atmosphere that is just fine for the whole family. We had the "Italian" Sausage Dip w/ Nacho Chips which was very tasty followed by the Prime Rib Special. Large portions and served just right. Would have gotten 5 Circles if they would have payed attention to the weather and opened up the outdoor dining. (It was over 75 degrees out at 7PM).

The Silver Moon

Next to the large resort of Reynolds Plantation. A true find. A group of 6 golfers choose to eat here 3 of the 5 nights we stayed in the area. Extremely well priced with every type of food- fresh seafood, red meat, chicken,pasta, ribs (best we ever had). Not extensive wime list, but very well priced.

Reviewed By Mindy and Roger A - Janesville, Wisconsin

WOW! Great food, Excellent Service, Reasonably Priced & Very Popular! The Silver Moon opens at 5:00 PM. We arrived early and as expected, waited in line with others for the door to open. That's how good this place is!

Our food was excellent and the portion large, couldn't eat everything. This is generally a casual restaurant, attire is flexible. Ginger, the owner, stopped at our table to visit and inquire on our meals. Ginger is a very pleasant & engaging lady who also makes all the desserts. Speaking of desserts, we each ordered desserts, all were wonderful and again a large portion. Peanut butter Pie, Strawberry Shotcake & Caramel Fudge Cheesecake.

This restaurant offers Bar Service and has an excellent selection of quality wine. Live music every Wednesday & every other Tuesday. Our waitress, Sherrel, is wonderful. She has worked here for 5 years. Ask for her, you will be glad you did.

Dairy Queen is known for having wonderful ice cream snacks/desserts/treats. This DQ did not disappoint. Delicious blizzards made quickly and correctly. Ingredients mixed well throughout the treat. I always recommend ordering a cup of ice water after any ice cream.

El Agave Mexican Restaurant

Reviewed By ATLLegalEagle - Greensboro, Georgia

This family owned Mexican restaurant is a favorite among locals. The food is fresh and tasty. The Steak Ranchero is a great alternative to steak fajitas and you get much more meat. Cheese steak burrito was great but needed the side of beans and rice. The Texas Margarita was smooth and delicious'. Grilled shrimp got rave reviews too. They have some nice booths that fit 6 patrons. They are closed on Sunday.

Reviewed By Jay M

Excellent, excellent BBQ folks. Everything we had here was outstanding, tried the ribs, chicken and pork. Sides excellent as well. Ambiance is basic but you aren't here for that are you? No you are here for BBQ and these folks sling it with the best of them. Very excited to go back and explore other parts of the menu.

Mellow mushroom eatonton ga

Cool, fun, laid back dining experience. Kid friendly, also with a full bar!

Reviewed By JZChicago - Chicago, IL

In town visiting and heard they had good food. We had to wait 40 minutes for a carry out order of a burger, ketchup only, 2 steak and cheese sandwiches and an order of red potatoes. We got there to pick up order and they gave us red peppers instead of potatoes so we had to wait an additional 10 minutes for them to make them. We got home only to find a dried up burger with NO ketchup for our son who couldn't even choke it down as it was so dry. The steak sandwiches were horrible and we ended up throwing them away. Needless to say, I wish we would have ordered McDonalds as it would have been much better and lots cheaper. Don't waste your time or money.

Inaho Sushi & Hibachi

Reviewed By ewoka13 - Atlanta, Georgia

We live here and honestly didn't know this place was open. We absolutely loved it! My husband had Hibachi chicken & shrimp, I had tempura shrimp and vegetables. We cleaned our plates. I've never eaten sushi, before I left I went up to the sushi bar. They were so nice explaining to me what everything was. I will definitely try some sushi next visit. So happy we have a place like this! And they are open on Sundays!

Georgia Butts

To go bbq of all kinds with lots of sides. Outdoor seating offered catering also. Breakfast served till 11 on weekdays. 12 on Saturday and Sunday

Reviewed By jenned17 - Conyers, Georgia

Loved visiting Georgia Butts BBQ at Lake Oconee! The fried okra was fried to perfection and crispy, the baked beans smoky and hot and the chopped (really pulled) pork on the pork plate was clean, no fat or gristle and lightly sauced to perfection. The sauces were good--be careful of the hot BBQ sauce, it'll get you! Will definitely head back to try other items on the menu that sounded appealing. Give it a try next time you're at the lake. Hope to also make it back for the live entertainment and maybe to visit by boat.
