We absolutely loved this restaurant AND the location! Right in the heart of downtown Morganton. We made reservations, which appeared to be a good decision, because it got busy quickly. The menu changes regularly based on what's available locally as far as ingredients, fresh veggies, fruits, etc. A couple of dishes we had included bacon wrapped meatloaf and a locally... More

By 8pm the tables upstairs were full and loud but we got one of the few tables left in the quieter and darker bar section downstairs. My partner's Old Cuban cocktail was well constructed and my bottle of local English-style Peoples Porter was quiet delicious (and I speak as an Englishman). We ate a large locally-farmed beef burger, cooked exactly... More

This was our first visit here. What a nice place, great environment. We had several delicious appetizers. The pimento cheese, pigs in a blanket...all Great! I ordered the bacon wrapped meatloaf, it was a delicious dinner. I ordered the Apple pie for dessert and the very nice lady at the bar made me an iced coffee... it was delicious. Thanks... More

Saturday night. Date night. After a great day in the area, our visit culminated in a dinner at Wisteria. Their wine list is good as is their cocktail list. Our service was excellent. The changing menu is something I like and I think the chef has done a good job of pulling together flavors and ingredients. We had the brussels... More

The restaurant has more formal dining upstairs and a pub downstairs. We ate in the pub and it was excellent.

Farm to table restaurant with broad selection of pasture centered meats, vegetables. Locally sourced foods. Great selection of beers and wines. Live entertainment on weekends at times. Outdoor seating. Service is occasionally a little slow but the meal is definitely worth the wait.

We live in the area, but had not visited the Wisteria until we recently had a weekend guest. Our mistake. This farm-to-table restaurant deserves all the good reviews it has gotten and the media attention as well. We enjoyed the Sunday Brunch. This is no buffet. Great off the menu food and excellent service. Two of us had the Wisteria... More

The atmosphere is great as well as service and food. The best hummus and pimento cheese ever. Love the presentation of the food and that it is local farm to table.
