Southern Comforts is the new name for the old Knights on Main in Blowing Rock. the new owners are the former Mountain House owners from Boone. Rumors abound about why they moved and changed their name after 25+ years. The service hasn't changed a bit. the owner has her reputation and apparently... read more

Sorry, we won't be back. I asked for a teaspoon taste of the chicken salad, just to see if it was loaded with mayo or not. I got a stern "No". I ordered something else and asked for a couple of raw sliced onion pieces. I didin't get a "NO" but I was told there would be a charge for... More

As a fan of the old Knights on Main that use to inhabit this building (and which i loved for breakfast) I was anxious to try this new place. My best friend and I have been visiting Blowing Rock twice a year for more then a decade and went to Southern Comfort on an early Wednesday morning. While our waitress... More

Went here for lunch and had the specials. Well prepared food served by a competent waitress. Food was a good value and the restaurant is cozy and worth a stop.

My husband and I were in the area for a short time. We discovered Southern Comforts, which had rather recently changed management and name. I had the fried chicken with homemade mashed potatoes, green beans, and biscuits. Three pieces - huge pieces - done absolutely perfectly. My husband had hamburger steak with onions and peppers, old fashioned spiced beets, and... More

We were pleasantly surprised at Southern Comforts, which is where Knights on Main was. It is excellent food. We were a little hesitant as we had been regular customers of Knights for years. The food is home cooking, well-prepared, just plain delicious. And the prices are reasonable. We were in Blowing Rock 2 weeks ago and stayed for 2 nights... More

I was visiting from Raleigh with my Yankee mother in law from NY. Our waiter, Pete, was really nice and provided amazing service even though my mother in law gave him a hard time about the food. It was obvious that the food was frozen and not prepared in house. The mashed potatoes were oddly colored and cold as well... More
