What a wonderful dinning experience! We were visiting the area for a long weekend and made a reservation based on TA reviews. If you love food prepared with love you'll love this place. Warmly greeted and offered a choice of inside or outside table both with beautiful views. Our server, Savannah, promptly at our table to see if we were... More

The food was excellent along with the service. Breakfast was great also. The chef came out and spoke to us. The view is great!

The food is delicious, the rooms are romantic, and the staff is great! The view with dinner is outstanding. We will come back to celebrate special occasions.

My husband had steak and I had lamb. Both were good but the portions were small. We were still hungry after appetizers and the main course. So we ordered dessert, but that wasn't worth the money. Neither of us liked their dessert. The waiter was very professional, and the view was nice over other people's heads.

Gideon Ridge is the best meal in Blowing Rock. Great food, service, and wine list in an awesome setting. Every item we had was excellent and well presented. Enjoy a cocktail on the porch. Is small so I suggest having a reservation.

This is our third time dining at Gideon Ridge and each time just gets better! We typically come to Blowing Rock on a kid-free getaway once each winter and always try to make Gideon Ridge one of our stops. Last year's visit, our service wasn't very good, but we wanted to give it another try since the food and view... More

The only positive thing I can say about the restaurant at Gideon Ridge is the view. Our wait staff was not familiar with the menu. Wait staff also appeared to be unclean. We did not feel welcomed there. We had to seat ourselves. Dining area was a mixture of several different decor styles. I ordered duck and my husband had... More
