This was probably the sixth time we have dined at Root and Vine. I would suggest that we have had 3 very average experiences and 3 above average experiences. There is no consistency. What may have once been the number one restaurant in Morganton is now slipping way down the list. I would recommend Treat, Wisteria, and King Street Café... More

My wife and I were in town for business and wanted to grab a quick lunch. It was not too busy so the food came quickly. It was fresh and very tasty (turkey sandwich, salad, and tomato soup). Simple, yet satisfying. We will soon be moving to the area and will probably try other dishes and maybe the wood-fired pizza.... More

This is one of the best restaurants in Morganton! Their dishes are all amazing, and their staff is wonderful as well. They have an extensive draft and bottle beer selection featuring local breweries. They just opened up a pizza oven in an attached restaurant that makes fresh pizza that is very good. Their menu changes from lunch to dinner, and... More

We absolutely love to go to Root and Vine. It's great for a special occasion, or for wood fired pizza with friends. They even went the extra mile to make my husband an almond cream cake for his birthday. So wonderful. We never have a bad meal, service always warm and friendly. Please go, you won't regret it!!!

I have had lunch at Root and Vine multiple times with friends and family. It is a great place as it is centrally located in the heart of uptown Morganton. Excellent atmosphere, delicious food and attentive service.

The only problem we had was waiting for our meals. The waitress was lovely and comped us the wine, for the wait. We will... More

Root & Vine is not one of my favorite places to eat for lunch, but recently, my friends and I had a lovely dinner in the evening. The food was excellent. I had grilled Romaine, shaved parmesan house caesar with focaccia and crab cake Napoleon, fried green tomatoes, and sauce remoulade. All of my friends said they enjoyed their meals.... More
