Being locals we favor lunch over dinner for dining out. Vidalia always offers good choices for lunch, great food, nice portions, and a pleasant environment. It's just far enough down King St. to be accessible when downtown is packed with students or tourists. The new outdoor area is great in good weather.

When I went to school in Boone, around the time the Earth's crust began to cool, our idea of a good meal was the dearly departed Buck's Biscuits or Chanelo's Pizza. How wonderful to have such amazing eateries as Vidalia these days. Imaginative and tasty. Moderate prices. Awesome service. Great wine. My husband and I, along with another couple, had... More

Rather lacking in ambience in my opinion. Whilst I generally like restaurants with an open kitchen, this one didn't do a lot for me as the chef and his team all seemed a bit miserable. Our server was reasonably efficient but their apparent enthusiasm seemed a little artificial. The food was all reasonable but not one dish stood out in... More

Nice atmosphere, great food. Favorite place in Boone. This restaurant has a cosmopolitan feel. If it is crowded, you can sit at the bar and eat.

Great surprise to find a hamburger on a gluten free bun. We also had chicken and waffles, mac and cheese, shrimp and seafood soup. All were well prepared and tasty. Atmosphere was friendly, clean and trendy. Service was very good and professional. Will return on my next visit.

Came here with a group of 13 people for my birthday dinner and we loved it. We ordered the Mac and cheese, pork fries, pimento cheese and fig and prosciutto salad as starters. The hoe cakes with the pimento cheese were my favorite and I love the cheese "croutons" on the salad. I had the risotto for my meal which... More

My wife and I love Vidalias. Street parking is sometime a problem. Food is excellent. Menu is limited and has a solid wine selection. Love the fish tacos at lunch and great salads/soups.

Food is great. The place is also very nice. I recommend the tuna entre or the burger. Skip dessert, it was nothing special.

This restaurant was a great choice for lunch. It was recommended by the B & B Innkeepers where we were staying. We had a friend meeting us who is a strict vegetarian and this place offered many choices. All the food we had was delicious and perfectly prepared. The homemade potato chips are heavenly ! The squash soup was fantastic... More
