Welcome to Spirits Tavern
Dahlonega's Best Restaurant, Bar and Grill
Spirits Tavern is not your usual Bar & Grill. We have menu options that please even the most sophisticated of pallets. Combine that with a super awesome atmosphere, great people, live music and you have the most spirited restaurant in Dahlonega, Georgia!
“The Best in Dahlonega for burgers,” is how one of our loyal customers, Shannon, described us.
We are confident YOU will be saying that too after you sink your teeth into our juicy, mouth-watering delicious burgers! Our unique blend of fresh spices is just one reason for our delicious difference.
Our main difference: We use only primo ingredients, including humanely raised, antibiotic-free and hormone-free meats. All of our burgers and hot dogs are certified Angus beef. White Oak Pasture's 100% grass fed beef is also available.
As an alternative to beef burgers, we also offer Springer Mountain Farms chicken as well as turkey and vegetarian burgers! ALL of our burgers are prepared with yummy spices to make your taste buds do that happy dance you so much desire!
Our customers are the number one priority; that is why we prepare every meal “made-to-order.” So when you come to Spirits, sit back, relax, and enjoy yourself on our super comfy chairs.
Cindy and her husband decided to try Spirits Tavern on their date night and wrote us to say that everything was “out-of-this-world delicious!”
What Sets Spirits Tavern Apart?
We do our best in selecting only the finest produce and wholeheartedly embrace the the farm-to-table concept to ensure we serve the freshest vegetables and greens. Additionally, the eggs we use in our recipes come from cage-free farms.
At Spirits Tavern, we consider our individual customer’s needs and sensitivities and offer a wide variety of vegetarian and vegan choices, such as vegan, meatless burgers, sandwiches, and salads.
Did you know...All of our dressings, specialty sauces, breading and the specialty syrups -- used for our yummy specialty drinks -- are made in house! No pre-packaged highly processed ingredients here!
You Have Boiled Peanuts - Fried Mac & Cheese - Fried Green Beans?
Yes, we do, and any other combination that Chef Kevin gets inspired to share with us! Not only are the ingredients carefully selected, but so is our menu!
Where else can you enjoy boiled peanuts, fried mac-n-cheese or fried green beans? In addition to these three, we also have a delicious array of sample sizes so that you can try our unique items.
Some of our other appetizers include Panko-Encrusted Chicken Fries* with our guaranteed “Comeback Sauce.”
Our most popular item is our lovely-named Trash Pile. No, it’s not scraps for our compost pile. It’s an addictive concoction that starts with your choice of French fries or tater tots, which are topped with a generous serving of chopped Angus burger, drizzled with shredded cheese, onions, lettuce, and tomatoes and for two bits, your favorite dressing.
Be Aware! Chef Kevin is always adventurous in the kitchen, so our menu is subject to change.
*Our hormone-free chicken breasts come from Springer Mountain Free Range Chicken.
Who Let the Dawgs Out?
In addition to our incredible burgers, our customers come back again and again for our out-of-this-world DAWGS! These are no ordinary hot dogs. They are made with certified Angus beef (Hormone-free, antibiotic-free) and have the best toppings this side of the Mississippi!
