The parking is difficult and if you have to park any distance away it is hilly. The chairs are uncomfortable but if you get the bench side it is good. Service was good. Food average and dessert a disappointment.

Went here on Tuesday night. half price wine by then bottle or glass. Wonderful meal. One of us had lamb burger cooked perfectly. Chared on outside almost raw inside. It was cooked perfectly. I had the Shrimp burger. Outside of the coast, I have never had such a delicious burger. Can't wait to go again

See review of the hotel. The food was really good, and a much better included breakfast than most hotels. (A nice surprise, since we didn't realize it was included when we booked.)

If you make reservations on Sunday make sure you request back dining room. Don’t make a mistake and get seated in the front dining room or bar area. Space in front room is so crowded you can breast move your elbow to get the fork to your mouth. Space is over seated so be prepared for slow service and food cold. More staff needed. Food is ok but not worth the price or struggle to get it. Go to the Ridgeline, opens at 11, plenty of seating, jazz on Sunday and food better or for the best breakfast Sunny Rock.

My husband and I had dinner here, and they had their regular menu, along with a price fixed menu. On it, you could choose between a selection of options that also included your beverage of choice -- tea, coffee, a red or white wine, or a beer. Very good and reasonably priced. Excellent service, too. We made reservations, and I'm glad we did. This was our best meal during our four-day trip to N.C.
