Fortify Kitchen and Bar
We had another overall enjoyable dinner at Fortify. There was a minor issue at the start when no server was assigned to our table. The manager made things right once she was made aware and our dining experience from that point was very good. The Gouda fritters are always a favorite appetizer and the steak special was excellent. Always a good idea to save some room for dessert - YUM! And I can’t forget their wine list, which has ample glass and bottle options. Looking forward to our next visit!
My husband and I split the special. I wish we were told about the 8 dollar splitting fee. Other than that, we had a great overall experience. Thanks!
Fortify never disappoints! Love the food, cocktails and first class service! Top notch all the way!
As usual we had already decided what we'd order from the Fortify email earlier in week ,,,,, but ,,,,,, either missed a 'special' entrée or 'they' snuck one in and now had to rethink dinner. Such a tough life ! But as we had decided on the Halibut adding Wagyu beef was an easy choice and allowed us to have a shared Surf and Turf which is always a favorite ! Which was better ? We won't be surprised to see both of those items on a 'revised' menu soon. Did I mention the delicious salad(s) or the 'special' dessert, or the 'far above normal' staff ? I won't because you'll begin to think I'm a Fortify friend or relative. LOL (NOT)
The fish was fresh, the service very quick and the atmosphere delightful.
As always the food was wonderful and the service also
Excellent as usual
Me and my wife love trying new places to eat. I read your story on line and wanted to try it. I have told others on line and in person about our meals. My wife said one of the best meal she has ever tried. Your quality is and employees were first class. We will be back in 2 weeks and will tell others. We eat a good bit in Highlands and Cashiers but now Clayton Ga. I work with 400 hundred people and they will all know. Thankyou for a great night.
We all had the snapper special, and it was excellent. My husband and I split ours, and the portion sizes were adequate. The vegetable sides, were quite small, however, much smaller than at other Farm to Table restaurants at which we've eaten. The asparagus had only about 4-5 short stalks total. The roasted Brussels sprouts were quite good, as were the green beans. A short pour of red wine was $10. We all shared the chocolate chili creme brûlée, which was good and chocolate-y, but not very spicy. Again, it was quite small for the price. Not a bad serving size for one adult, but certainly not large enough to split. We would go back, and recommend it, with the caveat that it's pricey for what you get.
Very good place to eat!! Top notch
Finding an additional 'special' added to (as expected) a great meal because we had 'surf and turf ' for our shared dinner rather than our planned 'surf and surf'. Great evening and really enjoyed all of the folks working !
Fortify Kitchen and Bar never disappoints!! Amazing food and service. Definitely our favorite in downtown Clayton 🤩
We sat in the back room and were able to have a nice conversation while we ate. The service was excellent; Manny was our server and couldn't have done a better job. The food was great; we shared a selection of appetizers and particularly enjoyed the fried oysters, which were large and cooked perfectly.
Food was great! Service was great! It is a bit expensive, but not too bad, spent $100 after tip for 2 entrees, an appetizer and drinks (beer/wine). We will be visiting again soon!
Great food Great Atmosphere... I highly recommend!
Ending up sitting at the bar. Bartender was excellent!
We had a wonderful time at Foritfy Kitchen and Bar. Our dinner was out of this world. We are local so it was great to the taste products we know come from farm to table. This place has put Clayton, Georgia on the map. Our downtown streets are busying with tourists and locals. My husband was given a gift certificate building a rocking horse for his bosses new grand baby. We are so grateful for the chance to check this top rated place out in our town. We will definitely be back bringing friends and families. Great place for families, locals and tourist. Welcome to Rabun County like no other business in town can.

Always a great experience,, we like Tiffany as well.
Food was OK, the veggies were amazing but my lamb didn't have flavor. The beef soup had way too many ingredients, sometimes less is more. The waitress was very friendly and nice. I would give it a 2nd try.
Service was excellent!
We are fairly regular diners and really love Fortify.
Excellent restaurant in a beautiful Northeast Georgia location
Everything fabulous! Service, food, drinks. Noise level was fine because we ate early. I will say that sometimes it can be quite loud during the busy dinner hours, but won't keep us from coming!
This place never falls short. The food is always interesting and well prepared with top notch ingredients, often locally sourced. Service personnel are knowledgeable and professional.
Food and service were stellar as always. Luke and team world class. Tiffany coming over to say Hi was extra touch. One of my favorite places in world. Steve Franklin
Most Excellent dinner across the board! Food , service, ambiance.

The food is always fresh, creative and delicious! The service is always excellent! A must visit if you are in the area.
I keep going back every time I’m up in the mountains an excellent restaurant
Outstanding! Great service, ambiance, fresh food, and a wonderful dessert. A great place to take a special person in your life.
I don’t usually write reviews but this was an exceptional experience and excellent food. Highly recommend the place
Our first dinner visit. Food was the best. But brunch is the best. Grits are like no other. Bacon trout potatoes some wonderful upscale southern girl happiness. We will be back soon.
Fortify is our favorite restaurant...tonight we brought my daughter for her 23rd birthday. Food was outstanding,Allison our waitress was amazing. Thank you fortify for yet another fabulous evening!! Ps your bourbon selection is excellent!!
Hard for a restaurant to hit on all cylinders- Fortify has done it- we had lunch at Pi- then dinner at Restaurant and Bar- was the culinary highlight of our trip!
I and my companions really enjoyed the atmosphere and the food. The only problem I had was, one of the wait staff took my plate before I was finished eating. It wasn’t the end of the world and we got a good laugh over it! I would certainly recommend Fortify to anyone!
Food was excellent as always. The seating is a little tight not offering much privacy, but the delicious food keeps us coming back.
Always quality in every aspect.
Always a great experience in eating. The individual service was prompt and nonintrusive yet a pleasure. If I could suggest an issue, we were seated along the wall directly across from the bar. As we were a party of two, my wife was seated with her back to the wall and I across from her. The guests to the right of my wife had their table separated from ours no further than two feet from ours. During our meal their server, not ours slide in between their and our table with his backside toward our faces and food. Rude and not in good tastes. We enjoyed all the other aspects of our one time of a year meal and look forward to visiting again.
Great food and service as usual! Our guests were impressed!
Absolutely amazing, Bison short-rib. Scallops with sweet potato gnocchi. Apple pie type dessert. Phenomenal
Thanks for the warm welcome tonight, Jack, Carlton and all the others.. Sherry and I loved our scallops and crab cakes. So proud to have Fortify here in beautiful Rabun County! 🙌🏼
