Hidden away in the hills of Boonville, NC, the Hearth (or Big Woods) Restaurant is a wonderful secret that I almost hate sharing. It's part of a winery that makes much better wine than I would have imagined coming from the "Yadkin Valley Wine Country." The restaurant is beautifully rustic, all wood with an enormous vaulted ceiling, and it's set... More

Food was good, service poor. Unfriendly and slow. Waited a long time for a table when a lot were open and no one ever sat there.

Seems the restaurant and the vineyard have different names. A tad confusing but the food is really good and we will be back.

Sitting inside the Sanders Ridge winery, their restaurant is wonderful...I've eaten here a couple of times & the food is wonderful! Kudos to the chef. Always pleasantly treated by the staff & it's certainly picturesque. Would definitely recommend.

Every time we have dined here the food and service has been excellent. Nice selection of foods. Very picturesque setting, overlooking their pond and gazebo. Definitely worth the visit.

We had been to Sanders Ridge winery before and were happy to come back for dinner to Big Woods. The restaurant and tasting area share the same room and it works well. The setting is rustic, the wines are great, and the food is wonderful. I had steak smothered with mushrooms on a bed of mashed potatoes and spinach. The... More

If you like great food, a quiet rural setting, beautiful surroundings and enjoyable wine, Big Woods in rural Yadkin County at the Sanders Ridge winery is the place for you. My wife and I discovered the restaurant about two years ago in the Boonville community of North Carolina. It is definitely a rural setting, as the drive to the winery... More

In my opinion this restaurant should be considered one of the best in the region, and one that I would drive quite some distance (I live in the triangle) to get to. Good wine from the winery. You can buy a bottle to drink at the table, and it's priced from $10-$25 (same price from the winery). Many of the... More

My family loves simple food off the farm, so going here was a real treat. We came on a Thursday when the restaurant served family-style meals. Big steaming platters heaped with succotash, sugar snaps, mashed sweet potatoes, and creamy coleslaw with cherries were laid in front of us. The main course was fried catfish with the some of the lightest,... More

All of our visits to the restaurant have been great. We're happy to have this place for great food in our community. We're always proud to take guests; Neil and the staff are friendly, and the family history makes it warm and personal.
