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

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 there are many who like it. Many don't....

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

This restaurant has been closed for over a year. It was terrible- both food and service including lunch and dinner.

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

See review for Glidewells--processed cheese square on top of french onion soup that never melted, frozen mush fries and unremarkable burger. Wish I'd spent the money at the grocery store & cooked at home.

I don't know how to rate this one. The name brought us in, along with the historical building. Once in its not inviting just cold tables and chairs all over on one side and huge bar on other. Next room is small but nice with fire place. Now comes service the young waiter was trying but seems no training is... More
