Great meal between adventures

We both ordered the BBQ sandwich platter with Mac 'N Cheese and sauteed kale, and we both ate every bite. For a restaurant operated by the adventure company on location, the food was excellent and the prices very reasonable.

To celebrate our anniversary, we chose to return to this lovely place overlooking the mountains of North Carolina for maybe the 5th time. Couldn't have been a more wonderful evening. Kayla, our server, was perfect and we enjoyed visiting with her. At some point in the evening every one of the serving staff interacted with us....everyone was so warm. The... More

Though the Village Bistro has not opened up yet this year, if you enjoyed the food severed to you then your next stop needs to be Coach's, next to the Jarrett House in Dillsboro N.C. All of the Village Bistro's chefs and cooks are now preparing new and old dishes to please your appetite.

The food was tasty and well prepared. Since we were there off-season, they were out of some items such as kale salad, and some nites no trout. Good service. Average prices.

The menu was small, but what they did have was delicious! The outdoor seating provided an excellent view of the mountains. Definitely a quiet little romantic place.

From Bryson City back to our vacation cabin in Nantahala we were searching for a place for dinner.

This restaurant could have been great but the flavor of everything I ate was ruined with the salt. Way too heavy handed! It started with the oil and herbs for the bread-even that was loaded. Then I had salmon-perfectly cooked, mashed potatoes, and asparagus-all loaded with salt and I like salt. The view is lovely as we ate on the... More

We spent a lovely evening at the Village Bistro with North Carolina friends. The food was great, the view just gorgeous. The dining room is warm and rustic, but open, large, and architecturally lovely. I would go back. It was, however, a trip, a restaurant that is sort of a destination--the clientele has to know about it, or be advised... More
