The food was delicious and in abundance. We all had to take to go boxes for our left overs. The waiter was beyond great!

I would look elsewhere to eat. Food was fair, wait staff seemed put out. We arrived 45 minutes before they were closing, so they probably were not at their best. Part of a lodge that looked very interesting tho.

We were staying at Nantahala Village and ate dinner here our first night. My meatloaf was fine, but drenched in an overly rich marsala wine sauce, and accompanied by very bland white rice. My wife's trout was pretty good. For desert we ordered a cold berry bread pudding. The waiter did warn us that it was cold, but that didn't... More

loved the surf and turf special, green beans and bread. My wife felt her salad was very small (it was) but her dinner of Dragon Shrimp was wonderful. Had dinner on the porch at sunset...that was great!!

The cafe had indoor and outside seating. The lighting indoors was a little too bright and the tables could have had linens, but the steaks were very good. The bread and dipping oil was very tasty.

Food was good, well steak was bland, but everything else was good. Portions really small! Not really Kid friendly options!

We read all the glowing reviews of this place and thought we'd try it on a recent visit. We were underwhelmed. The food was fine, the service spotty, and the lounge singer in the bar was awful and annoying. There are few places to eat in this area, so I would try it again to see if we have a... More

Thank you for your review although I'm sorry your experience did not meet your expectations. The singer only plays on Saturday night, so please do try us again on another night. More

We looked at the glowing reviews and decided to try the Village Bistro. The food was wonderful. The dinner started with warm bread and Tomato Basil Spread. I ordered the Ribeye and Grilled Shrimp special with green beans and Yukon mashed potatoes. The meal was one of the best plates I've had in quite a while. Most impressive is the... More
