Was this the place with no air conditioning in the middle of summer?
Yes, because this is the most unique restaurant in Blue Ridge. It was renovated from an old friend of mine's garage to a very amazing restaurant right on the banks of the Toccoa River. Air conditioning? You don't need air conditioning when you are riverside. Evidently you can't see the beauty and are totally out of place in such a natural atmosphere.

Wow, it's terrible that such a natural rustic gem isn't there anymore. How many coconuts did it cost for a beer there anyway?

We are from Colorado- I am a sixth generation native. My family is all buried in the mountain town of Breckenridge, Colorado. We have owned our little cabin almost 20 years because it was the closest we could get to a Colorado cabin.
The very first experience we had was lunch at the Toccoa Riverside restaurant in 1993. We were looking for cabins and stumbled across this restaurant. It was summer and very hot. But it was so great- just what we were looking for! We ended up building a cabin on Stanley Creek. And we have gone to the Toccoa Riverside restaurant ever since. Tim has always recognized us and has been very nice. I do hope he rebuilds and wish him the best. Mtngurl

I hate to hear it's no longer there. We went there every time we came up. They made the BEST peach cobbler on the planet. Does any one know their recipe for the cobbler? I hope they rebuild.

Well I guess that damn floodlight won't be a problem anymore will it?

I noticed this morning that they have started to clean up the debris. They did not hire a local grading crew to do the job. I wonder if they will hire local people to rebuild it.

Some guy out of Fla is trying to get them to build on a piece in Blue Ridge that MAY be subject to FEMA floodplain issues . Stay tuned.

Toccoa Riverside Restaurant is Back!! Opening to the Public this Friday less than a year from the terrible fire. it is very similar to the original, but fresh, clean, much more open to view the river, beautiful bar overlooking the river and the food is fabulous - as always. Come back and see what blue Ridge has missed for a year and what will soon considered the best restaurant in North Georgia - Congratulations Tim!!!
