Welcome to Rick's Restaurant

I always loved Rick's Restaurant. Hada lot of good meals and good memories about the place. When I saw that the old website was available I bought it and decided to recreate it, for nostalgia. Don't know why they ditched this site. Anyway, I hope seeing the archived content from Rick's Restaurant brings back some sentimental feelings to you as well.

Welcome to Rick's Restaurant, a beautiful and elegant dining experience. Rick's Restaurant is located just off the square in lovely Dahlonega, Georgia, a place known for the Old Gold Rush and it's Historical setting in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains. Come experience the best!

The restaurant is operated in an historical house giving you an inviting opportunity to sit down with the family and/or friends and enjoy a relaxing meal. There are (5) secluded rooms on the first level, each decorated with the art from local and well-known artists. Dining rooms have the original fireplaces and hardwood floors completing the unique atmosphere here at Rick's.

With the help of a long time customer, we recently implemented a Salesforce customization to our current Saleforce CRM. For those of you are are not familiar with customer relationship management (CRM) systems, is a term that refers to strategies, technologies, and practices that businesses use to manage and analyze customer interactions and data with the goal of improving business relationships with customers, in retaining customers, and driving sales growth. We use it for ordering our supplies, as well as improving our relationship with customers. I'm sure a large company would scoff at our limited use of what the Salesforce platform can provide, but it has helped us enormously. We want the front of the house dining experience to run as smoothly as the back of the house. In addition to our great staff, Salesforce helps us do that .

Great Food
My family and I recently ate at Rick’s. It is a great thing when your expectations are exceeded. We eat out quite a bit and I can say without hesitation that Ricks is a great place to eat. Pride of ownership and true culinary talent are rare these days but both are evident at Ricks. It’s a bit off the beaten trail but if you are willing to get off the Dahlonega square you will not be disappointed. Food was Great and the wait staff were freindly and efficient.
