Saturday night. Date night. After a great day in the area, our visit culminated in a dinner at Wisteria. Their wine list is good as is their cocktail list. Our service was excellent. The changing menu is something I like and I think the chef has done a good job of pulling together flavors and ingredients. We had the brussels... More

The restaurant has more formal dining upstairs and a pub downstairs. We ate in the pub and it was excellent.

Farm to table restaurant with broad selection of pasture centered meats, vegetables. Locally sourced foods. Great selection of beers and wines. Live entertainment on weekends at times. Outdoor seating. Service is occasionally a little slow but the meal is definitely worth the wait.

We live in the area, but had not visited the Wisteria until we recently had a weekend guest. Our mistake. This farm-to-table restaurant deserves all the good reviews it has gotten and the media attention as well. We enjoyed the Sunday Brunch. This is no buffet. Great off the menu food and excellent service. Two of us had the Wisteria... More

The atmosphere is great as well as service and food. The best hummus and pimento cheese ever. Love the presentation of the food and that it is local farm to table.

I found Wisteria on Trip Advisor because Morgantown was halfway between Knoxville and Pittsboro and we were meeting up. Who knew Morgantown off I-40 was so picturesque. This small restaurant and bar is charming and well designed. A wood ceiling damps the noise and you can hear people speaking. I had the special frittata with a turnip beet salad on... More
