“Intimate restaurant with great food and service”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

This restaurant was located at the Inn where we vacationed. It had excellent, high-end food. The staff is genuinely friendly and the chef is excellent. I highly recommend it.

“Special Evening - Scrumptious”
Reviewed 26 May 2014

Superb outside dining experience with splendid views. Food exquisitely prepared and perfectly presented. Great place for a special evening. Even better to stay at the inn. Highly recommended!

“return visit”
Reviewed 20 May 2014

lovely spot and good food, not great food, but good. I was irritated by the staff setting up for breakfast before we were even through w/ our entrees. (It was only 9:00 p.m.) Not classy for an expensive restaurant.

“Great dinner”
Reviewed 18 May 2014

Great dinner, although I admit reluctantly going all the way with 5 stars. For $30 entrees, I really wanted to be wowed with rich, complex flavors in the dishes. Our grouper and beef dishes looked amazing and had combinations of fresh, local ingredients. Just didn't quite have wow-factor. Wonderful service. Views were amazing. Still glad that we splurged on this dinner.

“Phenomenal!”
Reviewed 15 May 2014 via mobile

The restaurant may be hard to find, but its worth it with phenomenal food & lovely views. I had the North Carolina pork chop which was tender and succulent after marinating in apple cider. Hubby had grouper which was tasty & super fresh, as the chef told us it had just arrived at 3pm that day. Shrimp appetizer was delish as well. Its about 1-1/2 miles out of town. Take the turnoff for the Blowing Rock attraction and bear left near the top of the hill. You won't be sorry.
