Restaurants in Helen, GA: Mully’s Nacoochee Grill


I’m just going to make it known that I really enjoy good food. Food that is cooked to perfection and presented in a way that almost makes it look like art really does make me happy. 

One look at the menu at Mully’s Nacoochee Grill and you’ll think you just stepped into food heaven. From steaks, seafood, to delicious desserts, they literally have it all.

So much in fact that you might need a few extra minutes deciphering what you want to eat…but don’t worry, just make certain to order one of their amazing appetizers while you’re waiting.



It’s just a must to order an appetizer anytime that we go to a restaurant and I immediately zoned in on the one I wanted right when we sat down. The Grit Fritters had our names all over it and I could hardly wait to give it a try.

Let me just say that we made the perfect choice as this was probably one of the best appetizers that we’ve had. That’s saying alot! The outer coating was perfectly crisp and the bite-sized portions were flavorful and delicious. 

Once our pallets were tempted by the appetizer, we could hardly wait to order our entrees.



My choice of the night was salmon and cheese grits and I can assure you that it was cooked perfectly. The salmon was moist and flavorful and the cheese grits were delicious cheesy goodness. When the waiter came and took my plate, I was sad to see that I’d already finished the meal! (It was really that good!)

My husband ordered the New York Strip Steak off the menu and had the same reactions that I did. Pure, delicious taste and an aftertaste that left you wanting more.

Last but not least, make sure you save room for dessert! Chef recommended the Chocolate Bread Pudding. This rich, comforting dessert was certainly made to perfection!

The charm of Mully’s Nacoochee Grill

What I loved most about eating here was that it looked like it was a charming old house from the outside, but inside it is transformed into a warm and welcoming atmosphere that combined casual dining with delicious food, plus entertainment.
The ambiance was wonderful as it was a wide mix of tourists, locals and business professionals, all together in the same space enjoying wonderful food and great drinks.
Speaking of drinks, I recommend that you check out their bar and drink options while you’re there. It’s almost impossible to not order a glass of wine while you’re visiting Helen GA since they’re known for their local wines.
