Good Drinks

The drinks were very good. My wife said the petite filet was one of the best she ever had. I had the Pecan Encrusted Trout. Although, it was okay, I wouldn't order it again. Just wasn't a fan. The server initially lost our order, and it took about 40 minutes to get served. Really wasn't a... read more

Had dinner here with family. All dishes were adequate and decent. The trout is your best option. All else is not spectacular, but will suffice for a meal on the mountain if you don't feel like driving all the way down to Banner Elk.

We dined here with a group of friends and enjoyed the music on the lawn and later went inside for wings and wine! A nice way to spend a Sunday afternoon.

We were starving after a day of skiing and we stopped at the first restaurant on our way back from Beech Mountain ski resort! We definitely should have wait and drive a few more miles to spend our money in a better place. We had to wait at least 10 minutes before a waiter talks to us. They have a... More

This restaurant is located on the first floor of the Beech Alpen Inn. We ate here during our stay at the inn. We were very impressed with our meal. We ordered the Sesame pork chops with the carrots. Our choices were excellent. The spinach salad was big too. Sitting in the front dining area you will have a great view... More

We went here for dinner on Valentine's evening. The waitress was very friendly and the service was a little too quick for an evening out. With the exception of the soup, the food did not meet our expectations at all. We both ordered steak - one filet mignon and one ny sirlion. They came out looking very similar. Both had... More

We didn't stay at the Lodge but the rooms looked quite nice from what we could see. We went for Christmas Eve dinner and had a wonderful meal along with great service. The Chicken Piccata, Lemon Trout and Beef Piccata were all very good.

Enjoyed great dinner on the outdoor deck. The evening was warm and beautiful, and the service was on the money. My wife and I both had prime rib, which was perfectly prepared. We probably spent almost 2 hours there enjoying a great meal, along with a good bottle of wine. The appearance of 4 beautiful deer on the lawn only... More

We have been only to the bar, however, we have received good service The bar tender is entertaining and very knowledgable about the area. We noticed that the guests at the tables seem to enjoy the restaurant.

It is supposed to be a fine dining restaurant, and the prices reflect that. The waiter was very nice and did a wonderful job serving us. We sat in the fine dining area, and so our choices were confined to the fine dining menu only, which was the plan anyway. The rolls were heated up frozen dinner rolls (I know... More
