An amazing experience. The service is impeccable the food outstanding. Chef Nate uses the freshest ingredients bought daily at the market. Or flown from afar. The cuisine is innovative with sophisticated touches and unique flavor combinations. Desserts are delectable. Beautifully presented. The setting is picturesque.

We enjoyed three fabulous evening meals at Rowlands during our stay at Westglow. Not only were the meals delicious, but they were beautiful to look at! I have food allergies and I so appreciate the care with which my food was prepared.

I have nothing but raves about this dining experience. From the amuse bouche through the strawberry gazpacho and on to the chicken saltimbocca…..everything was presented with penuche, cooked with great skill, and enjoyed by the eye and the palate. The service was equal to the food. My companion had the rack of lamb cooked perfectly AND the lowly brussels sprout... More

Rowland's is a fabulous find. nestled in The Westglow Spa and Resort! We were walked in the entrance to be lead to a warm, southern, intimate, and charming room which had an amazing view of the mountain at sunset. There was an outdoor porch and rocking chairs. To make the evening more charming, there was a pianist and a fire... More

I don't know where the other reviewers ate, but my experience was NOT 5-star. Atmosphere was marred by background Motown, a musical genre more fit for a burger joint. Food was bland and featured large portions canned vegetables. Service was polite but inexperienced. Wine list probably came from the local supermarket. The only element consistent with fine dining was the... More

If you want 5-star cuisine served in a 5-star yet personal friendly manner, THIS is where you want to be. The ambiance is delightful and the waitstaff (BRAVO, ROBERT!!), is superb.
