Tucked away on a mountainside in Dahlonega, Georgia overlooking a scenic river, this fabulous place is a little hidden if you don’t watch carefully for the sign.
And once you see this quaint and charming place that is a transformed older home, you will understand why it is the number one venue in all of North Georgia.
Warm, cozy and friendly - the perfect place for an event of any kind but truly lends itself best for weddings
At the door, you will be ushered into a very welcoming environment with a fireplace, small twinkling light strewn everywhere, and three lovely decks overlooking the Chestatee River. The deck areas are quite large and are great for any kind of event; in fact since The Oar House started doing events in 2004 there has been almost 800, from weddings and wedding receptions, rehearsal dinners, bridesmaids luncheons, corporate events, graduations and much more.
You will be admiring the view for a while, strolling over the green next to the river, almost all seating at The Oar House has a view of the river.
Second only to the atmosphere, is the food. With the sky being the limit, the culinary expertise of The Oar House allows the event to dictate the menu. As an example, one of our signature appetizers is dates stuffed with monchego cheese, chorizo, and wrapped in smoky bacon.
Who could have guessed that these were the epitome of deliciousness? Most guests are a little hesitant to take a date to sample and then almost come to blows over who would get the most dates. Best appetizers EVAH.
Other menu selections such as fresh lump crab cakes and delicious fresh trout that is melt-in-your-mouth tender. The Oar House "Reserve" filet, Prime Rib, Pork Chop and variety of pasta dishes.
Desserts are another specialty of The Oar House. Like other parts of the menu, desserts are also fresh and made on the premises to order.
As one guest wrote, "Great location, friendly people, quite fabulous food – what more could you possibly ask for?
If you are planning an event in North Georgia, Dahlonega or anywhere close, you must check this out."
We are pleased to announce The Oar House received the "Best of Dahlonega" for 3 years in a row.
