Without a doubt, Fortify is the best restaurant in Clayton. The food is prepared with complex sauces and textures. Craft cocktails are excellent too.

The mixed drinks are some of the best I've ever had. The flavor and quality of the food from appetizer through to the dessert is excellent.

I love this restaurant. They never disappoint. There is always a creative seasonal menu featuring farm to table ingredients. As a pescatarian I enjoy their great veggies and seafood options. If you are in the area I highly recommend checking them out.

We love this restaurant, we try to visit over time we are in town. Food is always wonderful. We both ordered the steak, which we have had in past and was aways great, but this time my husband ordered it cooked medium well. His was well done. I ordered well done no pink, mine was pink on inside and chared or burnt on outside. We did not complain since for is usually great.

Great place. Our second time, and we'll go again, but do not get a table in the back by the restrooms....takes away the charm. I should have requested to be moved.

This is an awesome restaurant in the North Georgia mountains. Carlton, the mixologist, is the best bartender we've ever had. His shrubs are amazing!

Had a reservation for three. When we arrived the women put us a very nice table. Before we settled in she came back and said she had promised the table to someone else and would we move. Bad mistake. We ended up at the back where two sat on bench next to wall and i sat in a very uncomfortable metal chair facing the wall. Next time I will be specific about what I expect.

Fortify is a great Farm to Table Restaurant located in beautiful downtown Clayton, Ga.
It is well worth an hour drive to just eat there. Everything we have ever eaten there has been
prepared, seasoned and well plated ...........DELICIOUS!

For this area this is a great choice however, they are kinda full of themselves. They never let you switch vegetable choices, and often think they are doing you a favor letting you dine there. I don't know what that's about.
I'm glad that the quality of the food is almost always very good.

A mixed bag on our first (and probably last) visit for a special occasion. Our open table reservation was not on file - an awkward check-in as we were presumed to have no reservation and discussion about what to do with us as we looked in at a mostly empty restaurant (it was early). I would recommend calling the restaurant directly to make a reservation since they had no record of our open table booking or additional confirmation provided the day before.

Cocktails were delicious, as were our starters of fall salad and butternut squash soup. Breads were lovely and gluten free options were especially nice - lots of GF options on the menu (most of them). Entrees were ok - lamb shank was tender but not especially well seasoned. Venison was also very tender but somewhat bitter. Plating could have been nicer for the price point. Coffee delicious but seasonal creme brulee wasn't torched and reminiscent of butterscotch pudding - definitely skip.

We knew of the place as area foodies and market gardeners that had heard good things from other farmers. Ambiance and service were nice (arrival aside) and appreciated the soundproofing on the ceiling to moderate dining noise. Cliente very diverse - dress ranged from business casual to tank top, man bun and visor. They have stiff competition from a couple of other restaurants in the area that are closer to home for us which is makes it less likely for us to repeat our visit.

Very good food and ambiance. My only disappointment was the inability of the chef to alter my entree to accommodate my keto-type diet by removing the starch from the course. It was made fairly clear by the server that it was “their way or the highway.”

Love Fortify. The food is wonderfully prepared, unique combinations, beautiful presentation. The service is excellent, noise level was great this evening, though can get lively at times.
