Forty years in the restaurant business

Monet's Italian Grill and Pizzeria in Blairsville, Georgia recently celebrated 40 years in the restaurant business with 25 of them in Blairsville. Starting out in the Atlanta area, Joan and Dave Drake moved to Downtown Blairsville in 1991. Twenty-five years later, they are still welcoming patrons to their family-owned and operated restaurant located on Blue Ridge Street.

Open Mike Night, Dart Night, and Free Pie Day

New patrons will be delighted with the scrumptious meals and charming atmosphere. Described as "friendly elegance at its best”, Monet's is the perfect place for special occasions and everyday dining. Currently Tuesdays are billed as Open Mike Night. Bring your guitar and take a turn at the mike or sit back, relax, and listen to local talent -- starts at 6:30 p.m.

Thursday is Dart Night. Games start at 6:30 p.m. and everyone is welcome to join in the fun.

Wednesday is Free Pie Day. Get a free piece of delicious pie with every lunch and dinner entree. House specialties and activities change with the seasons. Weather permitting, Monet's also features patio dining in their beautiful courtyard.

Special Sunday night fun

Sunday nights are really fun at Monet's. Order from the special Fun Menu with pizza by the slice, burgers, and hot dogs with all the fixings.

Monet's has a varied menu for every taste

Monet's Italian Grill is open Tuesday through Sunday from 11:00 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. Guests enjoy great food including house specialties such as Baked Cheese Ravioli, Chicken Parmesan, and Fettuccini Alfredo. Enjoy the relaxing atmosphere of the spacious dining room or grab a table in the pub where large screen TV's bring excitement on game days.

Joan and David Drake bring a European flair to the North Georgia Mountain dining experience. Steaks grilled to perfection, tantalizing seafood, a large variety of pasta dishes, and handmade pizzas are just a few of the items that bring customers back again and again.

More to come...

Have you heard rumors about the young ghost that roams Monet's dining room? People swear they have seen her misty form and workers have found mysterious hand prints. If you know more about the Monet Ghost, please call Joan with details. Story will be forthcoming in due time.
