Our daughter gave us a gift certificate for dinner at Rowland's for our birthdays.

The restaurant is the lower level of the Greek Revival style mansion built in 1917 by the artist and author Elliott Daingerfield. I understand that the second level houses 6 elegant bed rooms. The Mansion is gorgeous and offers fantastic views of the mountain range while sitting in chairs on the Portico waiting for dining time. We watched a beautiful sunset over the North Carolina Mountains.

As an appetizer my wife had heirloom tomatoes with goat cheese and I had giant prawn. Both were excellent. As an entree my wife had the salmon which she stated was good and I had the sea bass which was very light and delightful.

For dessert we shared a piece of Nutella chocolate cake. It was wonderful.

The maitre d, Gary, was very informative and pleasant. He explained the history of Rowland's restaurant. The Waiting staff was unsurpassed.

All in all, we had a wonderful experience at Rowland's restaurant., Westglow. We hope to return in the near future.

Near Blowing Rock in western North Carolina and by the Blueridge Parkway, beautiful old mansion, surrounded by gardens and inside the great atmosphere, antiques, confort, attention to detail, make the occasion fulfilling.....Sitting by the piano while we wait for our table, music, cocktails, a great find....an excellent Amarone by the glass at $10.00....a bargain!....Then the food, delicious, the sea bass, the steak, the salmon, salads....I have been to this restaurant on several occasions and always consistent, one of the best anywhere...and the service impecable. Highly recommended Reserve your table well in advance.

We dine here as often as possible every summer. The impeccable service, presentation, and spot on wine pairings are the best North Carolina has to offer. This team goes out of their way at every level to ensure that you are pampered and happy.

We spent 5 days at the Westglow resort, and every breakfast was superb, the only short coming with the dinner menu was limited selection and the fact that it did not change during our stay.
The quality of the food was what you would expect at a Relais & Chateaus restaurant. EXCELLENT! The service is a perfect compliment to the kitchen.
We had the pleasure of being served one evening on the front portico at sunset one evening. A romantic way to end a perfect day.

We wanted something really great to celebrate our 44th Anniversary. We are so happy we chose Rowland's. It began with a very welcoming valet and hostess. We were guided to a table on their glass enclosed veranda. I then saw why Gary, when I made the reservation, asked if we were celebrating a special event. Our table was decorated with rose petals and a personal card acknowledging our Anniversary. What a warm touch to start the evening. Our server, Lauren, was very attentive and helpful. Our dinners of red snapper and pork loin were fabulous - well presented, delicious and well portioned. What a great evening that ended with the sun setting over the Appalachians. Don't miss a great meal and evening at Rowland's when you visit Blowing Rock!
