The food is always good but the service is a bit slow. Maybe that is because they take extra time with making the great food. Still a bit too slow for my liking.

This is a beautiful place; lots of wood, lots of art and a fantastic dog friendly porch. The food was very good but our favorites of the day were the fondue appetizer, the Reuben sandwich and the mushroom and Swiss burger. Piping hot and spicy pimento cheese that you want to dip everything in and a huge burger cooked the... More

We ate here just last night. The ambiance is amazing! The bar top is made of a single felled ambrosia birch and its absolutely lovely. The food is good. We like to get several appetizers and share. Highly recommend the Southern Fondue- the hush puppies come out light and hot- yum. The mussels were ok- definitely heavy on the salt.... More

Atmosphere was ok. Food ok. Just an average meal. Other restaurants in town were much better. Brevard was a nice quiet friendly town. Great hiking and beautiful water falls

Ate here tonight with a group of friends. We are here visiting from Chicago so we know a good restaurant when we see it. Seriously, do not miss this one. We had many appetizers, the edamame, seared tuna & vegetable spring rolls were just outstanding. Even the fried kale on the tuna was a treat. I had the planked salmon.... More

Eat there often for both lunch and dinner. Friendliness of staff is exceeded only by selection and quality of menu items.

The menu was varied and the food was good, not outstanding, but good, and I had a pleasant evening there. I love the building, the outdoor seating, etc. -overall, the restaurant just had a very relaxed yet chic vibe. My only issue...tried to go back another night, didn't have a reservation, but inquired if there was a table for three... More
