Servers are very nice and attentive. Food is great! A great place to eat for a special occasion. Making a reservation ahead of time is a smart idea, and if you want to eat outdoors, be sure and let them know ahead of time. It looked like there are some locals who enjoy the place as well as tourists!

Although casual in atmosphere, this is one of the most refined restaurants in town in terms of food, wine and service. Try the shrimp and grits...fabulous!

We stayed at this boutique hotel in 2017 as well as September 2018. We had several breakfasts and one dinner on this trip. The menu selection is very broad and the food is excellent at reasonable pricing. It seems this restaurant is a favorite with locals, and with good reason. Even if we were not staying here, we would go out of our way to eat here. Blowing Rock and Boone have many good restaurants, but this one will always be on our "must" list!

Spur of the moment overnight trip to Blowing Rock and thought we’d try this place. Server was very attentive and helpful. She recommended several options for us; my wife got the Shrimp Burger - which she loved; I got the Swedish Meatballs - which were OK; not fabulous but OK. Our server noticed that I did not finish my meal and discounted it (50%) which I appreciated. Will definitely go back.

We always each here. It's so good. We love to sit outside if the weather is good but the inside is so nice, too.
