We loved our meals. Everything was prepared with extreme care and tastes were really lovely. My husband had the lamb (tender) and my choice was also great. Especially notable was the wonderful soup.

The food is consistently great at Gideon Ridge, but we had a chicken pate this trip that was simply “of another world” fabulous. It was the first thing I thought of the next day! Awesome chef.

For an inn located in the Blue Ridge, I don't think someone would expect the quality of food served with a good wine list that's fairly priced. We ordered 4 apps that we shared and the house made boursin stuffed piquillo peppers and escargot were...More
