I have been to this restaurant a couple of times and have enjoyed the meals I have had there. I wasn't real big on the moonshine (yes...really) but the food was good!

Vidalia is a quaint small restaurant in downtown Boone. I had reservations for 8:15 and they were running a little behind but worked feverishly to get the tables cleared and us seated. I had the flounder special which was very good along with the pimento cheese appetizer(excellent). My friend has the tuna special and she said it was also very... More

I had the pleasure of dining at Vidalia for dinner on a business trip in April 2014. The food, the service and the atmosphere were great! I had read positive online reviews and was not disappointed - if anything, I was even more pleasantly surprised. I had the North Carolina trout, an oat encrusted trout filet served over a bed...

After years of frequenting this gem, I am still amazed every time I go at how mouth watering the food truly is. Sam is gifted! His team is gifted! Thanks again for another wonderful birthday meal. We shall be back again... More

We came early on a Saturday night without reservations. No tables, but we nabbed two seats at the bar overlooking the food prep/cooking area.. This was a treat. These guys had it down pat, and worked so well together as a team...Their plates came together flawlessly. The food was superb. Fresh, prepared to order and very tasty. I had crabcakes... More

In town for a college visit and stopped in for lunch. What a treat! The three meals we had were outstanding and really came across as fresh & satisfying. The farm to market aspect was apparent. I would strongly encourage stopping in to have some good eats. Enjoy!

Vidalia is consistently one or perhaps the best dining bisros in Watauga County. It has both a core menu and daily specials. The setting is small and definitely requires reservations to insure seating. Food is master chef quality in presentation, creativity and a delight to the palate. We have been there a half dozen times. We have enjoyed the chicken... More

Quant small cozy bistro style in downtown boone. I has the onion rings as an appetizer. They were large, not greasy and delicious. The chicken and dumplings were tender and the dumplings were like little bits of heaven. They prefer reservations get the Mac and cheese as well.

We ate here about 3 years ago, and it has gotten even better. There is not doubt that this is the best restaurant in Boone. Good service, food, and good local dishes. Nice wine selections.

Great staff, friendly & attentive. From just the 2 separate dinners we chose I wish I could've sampled a little of everything everything. Starter: Cracklin Mac & cheese...awesome Meal 1: Chicken & Waffles..awesome Meal 2: Meatloaf (best I've ever had) Prices were very reasonable... A must if you're in the area
