Follow-up Trip Report - Dining

We were in Lake Lure for a week staying at a timeshare in the Rumbling Bald Resort. That was very nice, although we did not dine at the resort's restaurant (Lakeview Inn I think it was called).

We thoroughly enjoyed A Point of View, which participates in the Restaurant.com program ($25 g/c for $10 . . . or less if you find them on sale). The food was outstanding (Sunday & Tuesday are prime rib or trout dinners for just $13.95) . . . and the service very attentive. Highly recommended!

We also did Alyssa's which is in town across from the public beach area. We first went there due to the Restaurant.com deal, but did return another night. They had very good sandwiches and my DH loved the fajitas. They are also owned by the same folks at A Point of View.

In Chimney Rock, we had dinner one night at Genny's, a nice family restaurant that had great value and wonderful southern home cooking.

We also had the occasion to have dinner one night in Asheville as we were driving into NC the first night. We had dinner at Providence 620 (exit 50) which was also very good and pretty reasonably priced.

If you are a Restaurant.com fan, do not bother with the Riverside Tiki as it really looked like an old run down motel with a bar out back by the pool. We couldn't imagine anything good coming from dining there, so we took a pass.

We did consider La Strada but frankly felt they were out of our price range when we looked them up on the internet. Same for Larkins on the Lake, which actually came highly recommended for lunch by the folks at our resort's marina. (They suggested it for a nice place to dock and dine on the day we rented a pontoon boat.)

All in all, a good dining experience while staying in Lake Lure. With the tourist season beginning this weekend, we know we were fortunate to pretty much have the place to ourselves. I would suggest reservations at Point of View.
