From a hot, fresh fulfilling breakfast to a dinner with a view, the city of Ellijay and the surrounding area has a lot to offer. The food is like homemade cookin’ especially in the early fall when visitors come for the Apple Pickin’ festivities. The atmosphere is quaint and there are options for ALL palates. Here is a list of our favorite Ellijay restaurants:

740 S. Main St, Ellijay, GA  30540
Phone: 706-276-9924

Open for: Lunch and Dinner

Specialty: Pizza and Sandwiches; Beer and Wine Package Store

Pro tip: Get there early on weekends.


The Hitching Post is a local iconic stop to buy a cold beer, local wine, hot pizza and authentic sandwiches! Though technically not in downtown it’s just around the bend. The pizza sauce has a unique one of a kind flavor and Mayor Al does NOT skimp on the toppings! Sandwiches are made cold or toasted in the pizza oven. The food is always delicious and the customer service is always on point. The best part, you can also pick up packaged beer and wine to take home with you.
