So glad we got the recommendation to try The Orchard and happy that they were able to fit us in even though they were completely booked. One of the top ten meals I have ever had. The Pork was juicy and I could cut it with a fork, the special lamb shank was out of this world as well. Everything... More

Came to Cashiers for our anniversary to do some leaf peeping. The property manager for the house we rented recommended The Orchard for our anniversary dinner. It didn't disappoint; excellent service, atmosphere, food and drinks. The price was not exorbitant either. As the property manager described it, it won't test your Visa card. Now let me say, this is NOT... More

We had had a bad experience here in April, but gave it another shot. We are happy we did! Excellent waitress with great personality. The bartender came to the table to take our drink orders, and to deliver them. Flavorful steak. The menu was a little rich to go too regularly, but they were happy to make our steaks without...

My daughter and I came her for dinner on our stay in Sapphire. The food was excellent, as was the service. I had the salmon, and it was delicious. The restaurant is in an old renovated farmhouse, and there is plenty of parking. I highly recommend this establishment, and will surely be back!

I reviewed The Orchard in January 2012 with the same title: The Best in Cashiers. We spend our Summers at our home in Cashiers, NC. Over the years, our favorite restaurant is without question: The Orchard. It is owned and operated by brothers Chad and Travis. One or both are always there to greet you and honor your reservation with... More

The restaurant looks alike a small hours but when you get inside you see how large it is. The wait staff were friendly and the food was delicious. The do have a $25 corkage fee if you bring your wine which was a bit steep. The trout was well prepared and quite tasty.

We had not visited this restaurant for several years. We decided to go after some poor experiences at other local restaurants. The crab bisque was very good; initially I had some doubts because it was a bit spicy (I worry about spice being used to disguise stale seafood). The bisque was very creamy and had a great taste. My wife... More

This was our second time to eat here. Excellent food and service. Prices range from $9 to $30. Not your average restaurant so don't expect burgers and shakes.

We are no strangers to The Orchard Restaurant. Dining there has been our most anticipated treat since we began visiting Highlands some years ago. Unlike some of the other highly rated restaurants in the area, it has never failed us. The chef has created an inventive, varied, and delicious menu that takes advantage of seasonal, fresh, local ingredients. Don’t miss... More

My spouse and I visited the Orchard for dinner - our second time, both on Friday nights. The dinner was excellent. He had steak the first time and looked forward to returning for another steak. This time, he had a filet with goat cheese. The filet was tender throughout and the goat cheese made it more delightful. I had trout... More
