The Blue Coyote Bar and Grill

alt="Blue Ridge Mountain Cabin Rentals, blue ridge ga vacation cabin rentals, dahlonega ga rentals, hiawasee ga rentals"

Blue Ridge, Georgia

We found the Blue Coyote Bar and Grill by looking for a great local bar and eatery - and this is one! The bar tender and wait staff include a mother and two daughters serving up great drinks and  very tasty American bar food. Karaoke and trivia nights will make your day complete!

The pet friendly outdoor patio had a variety of guest and equal variety of dogs! 

Inside we found Dale Allen, a local artist, painting a beautiful mural all along the back wall and had to have a picture of it shown here.  Bottom Line: The Blue Coyote is worth a trip to the bar! (And the men's room - check out the beer keg urinal below!!!)
