This place has gone out of business. Has been closed for about 2 months. . They changed the name of the restaurant to Comfor,t I guess to make people think it was a new restaurant, but it was the same owners, menu, etc. and poof it was closed.

We drove up to eat and it was closed during regular hours. No sign on the door to indicate why. We had eaten there several times this summer.

Upon entering we were told there would be a 10 minute wait even though the place was more than 1/2 empty. Once seated our waiter appeared. We ordered and never say him again until he brought the bill. No one came by to see if we needed anything (which we did) nor ask how the food was. Rice was cold... More

The atmosphere is decent, unfortunately our appetizers came out before our wine which we ordered at the same time. Then the soup showed up luke warm and the bottle of white wine was the same. The place was not busy, only four other tables in the restaurant, so it's a shame. The Ribeye steak was about a 1/2" thick and... More

Overall really delicious food! The main dish was fantastic, the sides and appetizer were average. There was a great wine list, and wonderful ambiance. Our server was nice enough not terribly friendly, and the hostess was wonderful. It may be a little overpriced, but still nice for a special evening out.

Hearthstone is located in a shopping center in Banner Elk, but once you walk in the door, you are transported to a cozy, lodge-like restaurant. The menu has quite a variety from low-country to steak and fresh trout. We especially like their flat bread pizzas for appetizers or as a meal paired with a salad. They have an extensive wine...

My husband and I found this restaurant on tripadvisor. After reading the reviews, we made reservations and took a couple of freinds with us because it sounded very nice. The restaurant is very pretty and the staff was friendly and knowledgable. We ordered an appetizer and was very pleased. We were not happy with the entrees, but that could be... More

The portions are quite large and the food is rich so go with an appetite. The atmosphere is perfecto and the area can't be beat. I would definitely recommend trying this as a must see while in Banner Elk. The live music in the background also added to the ambience.

Five of us celebrated family birthdays. Good children's menu, fries were excellent! Good wine list, delicious pea and thyme soup, trout and Israeli couscous were superb. Too full to try the desserts! Would recommend though it is on the pricy side.
