Appalachia has long been known for its plentiful outdoor activities. As well as, beautiful mountain views, and Southern hospitality. But did you know that it is also a great region for dining? Some of the best restaurants in North Georgia are right around the corner from Ocoee Adventure Center. There are so many different mouth-watering and soul-satisfying places to eat in the vicinity. It can be hard to decide which restaurant to try first. Lucky for us, our friends at the Blue Ridge commerce center have created a handy guide for all the restaurants in the area. Many people ask every year so I’m going to give you a list of some OAC’s favorites!
If you are starting in the Blue Ridge area, or traveling that way from the Ocoee River, check out Trailer Drive-In or Pete’s Place for breakfast. A fabulous farm to table lunch can be found at Harvest On Main. Wrap the day up with dinner and a beer at Chester Brunnenmeyer’s. But for a more polished environment try The Black Sheep a call.
If you are traveling toward Ocoee Adventure Center from the Cleveland TN side of river, the guide above doesn’t really help much. Thankfully we can help. We recommend stopping for breakfast at the Ocoee Dam Deli. The deli is located on the left of Hwy 64 on your way to our outpost. The breakfast burrito’s and pancakes are amazing.
Lunch is best found at City Cafe Diner in Cleveland TN. On the way back through, be sure to stop at Aubrey’s or Jenkins for dinner. Both have a full service bars and a diverse menu. If you are wanting to have a romantic getaway with your significant other, book a dinner table at the Bald Headed Bistro. The restaurant has an excellent wine list and high grade steaks.
If you plan on staying local check out our guide favorites, El Rio for Mexican, Habenero’s for Tex Mex, and The Copper Grill. These are located in Copperhill TN. Just a few miles from our outpost.
