We ate here twice for lunch and stayed two nights here. OMG the food is off the hook delicious! Eat here no matter what!!! The Inn is so quaint and charming....a little noisy but will not keep us from coming back. The bed and the linens are 5 star! We parked and walked everywhere, location is perfect!

They have been opened only a year and really great! Owned by same folks that own Ragged Inn. We had lunch there and really great....price is very reasonable and food outstanding. Limited seating but wait time if crowded not bad....worth the wait.

We ate here tonight and the food was pricey but very good. They were busy when we got there but the server was still very sweet and the food came out fast considering how busy they were. We do not drink so I cannot speak to their beverage list.

My husband and I went to this restaurant on vacation the night before we left town. We both had a salad and thought it was well made, fresh, and tasty. Good customer service. We would go there again.

When the weather is cooperative, it's fun to sit outside and people watch. The food is good and the staff is friendly.

This was by far our best meal/service/beer in Blowing Rock. This gets 5 stars for all of the above. We got the flights of beer (Big Chocolate Porter was my fav, but I also really liked the Belgian Dark and the Stout) and then ordered more. Our server was great, offering us samples of some of the other beers (which... More

Great Beer selections, well formulated and brewed up to perfection!! We hung out in front of the fireplace and had some great grilled oysters. Fun place to see the Local charm and find some new friends. The couches out front are a great place for a large group to relax and talk, will go back again for sure.

We loved this place! Food was ridiculous! Try the sweet potato bisque, bison burger and brat. You can't go wrong! You'll want to purchase a souvenir Tshirt! :)

A real gem of a brewpub. Beers were excellent and very creative. Lots of fun atmosphere. Great to sit on the porch and have a craft beer. Now brewing on site so you can tour the brewery.
