Capers on the Square

78 Public Square N
Dahlonega, GA
(706) 867-0070

Mediterranean/Greek food located downtown on the square. The owner’s family is from Greece. Open daily for lunch and dinner, full bar. One of the popular Dahlonega restaurants on the square. They also sometimes feature foods from a specific country on certain months. You can also eat outdoors.

19 Degrees North

19 North Chestatee
Dahlonega, GA

Located on the square with indoor and outdoor seating. Features seafood, steaks and comfort food. Many like to eat on the second floor enclosed front porch with a view of the historic square.

Shenanigan’s Restaurant & Irish Pub

87 North Chestatee
Dahlonega, GA

Great food in an Irish Pub atmosphere. The bottom floor is very pub like with low ceilings and dollar bills attached to the ceilings celebrating a special moment or first drink at legal age (tends to be a little noisy if looking for quiet). There is also a screen porch and patio dining area adjacent to the pub like area. The second floor is up the stairs and is more traditional. The place is guest favorite. Free music on weekends, karaoke and trivia nights on weekdays. May accommodate vegans if you call ahead. Located right off the square. Indoor and outdoor seating. One of the popular Dahlonega restaurants. They really do St, Paddy’s day well and shuck oysters for shamrocks.

Gustavo’s Pizza

16 S Public Square
Dahlonega, GA

Great pizza and great crust- New York style. By the slice for lunch or whole pizza. You can order a basic cheese pizza all the way to the kitchen sink (our favorite) Good beer selection also with many local beers. You can also order a flight of beers. On Thursdays they sometimes have pint nights with a brewery featured and you get to keep the brewery glass. They also have traditional Italian entrees like pasta and huge calzones big enough to share. Decor is pub like with a large bar you can sit at or your own table.. Right on the square. Affordable also. Good place to watch the game. Live music sometimes. 

Bourbon Street Grill

90A Public Square North
Dahlonega, GA

New Orleans/cajun style food in one of the oldest retail buildings in town. You go up the old stairs to get to the restaurant and notice how the stair risers are worn down from many years of foot traffic. On the first floor there are art galleries to browse before or after dinner. Out back on the first floor is patio dining with fire tables during the colder months. On the upper floor you can eat on the front porch under cover but outside and view the square below as you eat like a Bourbon Street eatery in New Orleans.

Spirits Tavern

19 E Main St D
Dahlonega, GA

Unique cocktails, live music, craft beer and build your own gourmet hamburgers. We like their grass fed hamburger and farm to table sides. The restaurant decor is pub like with a long bar to sit at or have a private table. Tends to be noisy on weekends.

Pueblos Mexican Restaurant

82 E Main
Dahlonega, GA

A favorite for Mexican food and great option for vegetarians. They are located across the street from their normal location while the restaurant is being totally renovated. Affordable and authentic Mexican food and good margaritas (not too weak or too strong). Live music at times

Yahoola Creek Grill

1810 South Chestatee St.
Dahlonega, GA

This restaurant is located on the way into town and has great food and local wines and spirits.
