Description: WELCOME TO SEASON'S Fresh Local Ingredients. Inspired World Cuisine.Though easily accessible-just past the city limits of downtown Hendersonville-Season's at Highland Lake gives diners a premier culinary experience that is worlds away from the hustle and bustle of city life. Entertaining guests year-round for breakfast, lunch and dinner, our restaurant is indeed, as varied, rich and enticing as the four distinct seasons from which its name is derived. Diners will experience a fresh cornucopia of seasonal herbs, vegetables, and edible flowers hand-picked in our onsite organic garden. All served to you in a presentation that is vibrant, eclectic and imaginative-not to mention savory. Once you dine with us, you'll see why we have become one of the most sought-after, and celebrated dining experiences in all of Western North Carolina.

“Outstanding Breakfasts”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 January 2012

The ambience is beautiful, a country inn decor. We ate breakfast twice, included with our room in the inn. The food was exceptionally delicious, and the service was the best--very friendly and helpful.

“Enjoyable Dining Every Time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 December 2011

We have eaten at the Season's restaurant several times when we visit family in the area and have always enjoyed the dining there whether it is for a casual lunch as this visit was or dinner or special occasion buffet. The food is always great and something other than the ordinary. We enjoy trying something different on each visit and find that the menu changes often to make the choices interesting. We have always found the service good. We have had the same waitress on several occasions and gotten attentive but not intrusive service. The setting in great and we look forward to dining there when we are in the area.

“Quality is taken seriously at Seasons”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 December 2011

In planning a long weekend for a group of 5 couples, I selected Seasons for lunch just before we went to the matinee at the Flat Rock Playhouse. And, I also selected it for brunch on the Sunday as our last gathering before returning to our homes. I had eaten here previously so knew I could count on impressing our friends. And, I was not let down. The quality starts with beautiful grounds and a small gift shop as you enter the restaurant. The hostess is genuinely pleased to see you. The environment is all about relaxing and feeling comfortable. We were seated in a beautiful, sunny room and our waitress was attentive and informative about the area when she was asked questions. She had no problem presenting us with 5 separate checks and did so with a great smile. The food was delicious and the prices were comparable to any good eating establishment. The cost for 2 glasses of wine, 2 yummy and large sandwiches with fries was $39 and with tax and tip it was $50. Our surprise was that the usual mandatory 18% tip for a large group was not automatically included which made us all tip 20% or more. I had the French Dip sandwich and my husband had the Fried Green Tomato BLT. Both were delicious! The waitress was aware that we had theater tickets so she made sure we were served and received our bills promptly.

The brunch on Sunday was even better if that's possible. We had reservations at 10:30 a.m. which is opening time; and, therefore, we beat the large after church crowds. We were seated in a lovely room with a fireplace to warm us. Christmas decorations and music already in place made for a picture perfect setting. This was my second time for the brunch so again I knew that I would not be disappointed and I was not. The buffet at Seasons' is just the right size and has just the right amount of brunch/lunch selections. It does not under or over whelm. The restaurant uses seasonal and locally grown food. Each dish is well prepared and arranged with flair. If you are a vegetarian or a meat lover, your needs will be met. Again, the staff is excellent. Everything is included in the price of $24 per person except alcoholic beverages, tax and tip. Seasons' is the best possible way to start and end a trip in the southern North Carolina mountain area.
