Located in the North Georgia Mountains town of Dahlonega, Capers on the Square is a purveyor of fine Mediterranean dining and Craft Cocktails.



My parents and brother came to America in 1955 from the island Skopelos, Greece.  My godfather, Anthony came over when he was just 16 years of age.  Even still after hearing the stories from my family, I am amazed at their bravery.  Moving to a country in which you do not know the language and starting anew took great strength.

After being born in Pensacola, Florida and raised in Atlanta, Georgia, we moved to Dahlonega in 1993 to raise our children in this wonderful small community town of which we have grown to truly love.  As far back as my grandfather we have been in the restaurant  business.  Tommy (my husband) and I have each spent almost 20 years in restaurants so I guess it's just in my blood.

Absolutely, my favorite part of this journey is meeting and talking with all the customers.  Seeing someone enjoy the food that I was raised on not only makes me proud but also honors my family and their sacrifices.  So when you see me smile and thank you on your visit, know how much we truly mean it.
