Dillard House

1158 Franklin St., Dillard, GA - (706) 746-5348

Several Roadfood.com members visited the Dillard House early in August 2006. We found the description written a couple of years ago by Michael Stern to be spot-on. We enjoyed a dinner and the next day's breakfast and both lived up to the great review written earlier.

The dinner vegetables are all garden-grown locally. We loved the butternut squash and asparagus as well as the fresh melons and tomatoes. Dinner meats were as described, with the sliced beef coming from a rib roast and quite tender. The breakfast was also great. Grits, redeye gravy, country ham and bacon, and some wonderful sausages made this a morning to remember.

Our servers were quick to remind us of the "take it with you" rules, which encourage you to take a box of leftovers with you when you leave. We snacked on ham bits and fried pies all the way across Tennessee after leaving Dillard!

The lunch menu at Dillard House. The roster changes constantly through meal time as some dishes are added and some are eaten up. This can provide a sort of tantalizing torture if you are waiting for a seat (as you will do on a busy weekend) and hoping that, for instance, Brunswick stew remains on the menu when it comes your turn to eat.

Not just a place to eat, Dillard House also is an inn, cottages, and motel, plus a stable offering rides on horseback or in a carriage. (Charles Ammons photo)
