Jeremy was our waiter and he was amazing. We ordered everything he recommended and it was to die for. I also really apotheosis manager changing our seat as it made all the difference in the world in our experience! We will definitely be back.

We loved the Chef at Lake Rabun Restaurant, ate there so often. Now we find that he and another employee have formed Fortify Kitchen and Bar in Clayton. It is just as awesome as I expected it to be. Will be visiting every time we come to our cabin on Lake Rabun. So glad you didn't go too far away!

Everything was perfect! We were in town for a bachelorette party and decided to treat the bride to a delicious dinner at Fortify. Two of us got the Filet Mignon and two got the Chicken Picatta which were both delicious and cooked perfectly. Our dessert was the best part! Chocolate Caramel Tart- YUM!
Great location, great environment, and great food!

Very amazing ambience. Food was tasty. Generally overrated. Extremely small amount of food for a very high price. Hardly any options for customers that are animal free. Tons of dairy in everything. Who actually charges splitting fees anymore? I was hungry when I left. I would love to see them offer some healthier options.

Great place to eat in Clayton. Suggest making reservation for dinner as we saw a lot of people turned away.
We have enjoyed both lunch and dinner there. Service is great and they have some great bartenders!

Had the salmon and it was great! Perfectly cool and beautifully prepared. The summer salad was excellent. Oh and the chocolate/caramel tort was amazing. The service was excellent. Altogether it was a meal that I thoroughly enjoyed!

Every time we go to Fortify, we walk out talking about what a great experience we had. From the reception to the dessert, we are met by outstanding staff. The food is not only wonderful but the timeliness is aways impressive. Well done!

Excellent meal and service. A wee bit noisy but it was a packed house and we now know why. We would and have already recommended this restaurant to others. If we are in the area again we will be back and maybe get a chance to try Fortify Pi as well.

Fortify was recommended to us two years ago, and we have been enjoying this gem in Clayton Ga since.
We travel through Clayton almost monthly, and always make reservations at Fortify - if we can’t get a reservation, we sit at the bar and watch the mixologist create some of the most interesting cocktails.

Staff are well trained and professional, yet so inviting. The cocktails, appetizers, and entrees never disappoint- some of the best sauces, etc

Our server told us the specials and while she was getting the drinks, one of our party noticed there was a vegetarian option. Three of our four do not eat meat. When our server returned and read us the veg option, there was no other choice to be made except for the side. It was one of the best vegetarian dishes I have ever had. We all four enjoyed it. Desserts were enjoyed as well. Thoroughly recommend the restaurant. Their cocktail selection is quite delightful. Farm2Cocktail shrubs make it difficult to choose!

We were promptly seated by a friendly hostess. The restaurant was full, but the table spacing allowed for easy navigation for patrons and waiting staff. Our waitress was knowledgeable, friendly and very attentive.
The menu had a variety of gourmet dishes listed with a detailed description of the main course and accompanying vegetables with an emphasis on locally grown items.
The quail were butterflied, cooked to perfection, moist with a flavorful sauce. The bread furnishes like an appetizer was accompanied by a soft honey pecan butter and a local soft cheese. Vegetable choices included sauteed yellow squash and vidalia onions, asparagus, or a yellow corn green pepper medley.
The desserts were decadently scrumptious. The chocolate caramel tart was deadly delicious.
