Where People Come To Gather

The Yard is a themed-restaurant located in the renovated old jail on the Dahlonega Square, featuring unique dishes and specialty craft cocktails and brews.



What’s our purpose at The Yard Bars?  Moments of excitement…All made possible by our flavor and innovation.

We understand how to best serve our customers through tried and true service principles. Instead of following trends, we set them. We create food we’re proud to serve and deliver it fast, with a smile. No matter where you find us, we’re making sure each meal our customers enjoy is delicious and one-of-a-kind.


Being located in an old jailhouse, gave us an amazing canvas to work with when designing the interior elements of The Yard Bars.

We have taken the strong ‘bones’ of the building and historic interior and added a modern flair to it.

The ‘Cellblock’ downstairs is a great place to meet with friends and make some new ones as well as enjoy the true history of the building and enjoy one of our Craft Cocktails.  


As the first jailhouse in Dahlonega (200 years ago), it was only logical to allow the history of the building to take over.

The original desire to create a fun space on the square was replaced by the history of the building. Instead of just another restaurant, we wanted to create a unique destination, showcasing the rich history that is being revealed.

What are people saying about The Yard?

“I highly recommend The Yard. The food was phenomenal and the portions were large (for me). The atmosphere was quiet and nice for a Friday night. I had the lobster mac and cheese and my fiance had the soup of the day, mushroom soup. Both were very good. Our server was Andrea and she was very attentive and had excellent recommendations. We will definitely ask for her again. I’m excited for the next time we visit and can’t wait to see the cells again.” – F.M.

“Went for drinks and the staff was super friendly and made our evening fun! We also met the owner/chef- very nice guy!! It has a really great vibe and easy going feel. Highly recommend this place!!!” – M.W.

Super cool place and great food!

“My sister and I stopped in here on Saturday, January 5th. We had an amazing lunch and the dessert was….well you could slap your momma about it!!! We were able to speak to the chef, who told us the history of the building and how he progressed on his vision. We toured the speakeasy downstairs and were honestly just blown away by him, the amazing waitress we had, both big and small!!! As well as their food. What a wonderful place to eat and if you stop in, make sure to ask to speak to Chef if you can. Just an awesome experience all round. I look forward to going back next time I’m in town. 😋Thank you!!!” – S.S.
