Best upscale restaurant in the area

The food was excellent with an upscale menu and wine list, at least for the area. Service was very good. Highly recommended.

I have enjoyed The Orchard for many years. Never a bad meal. Always impresses my friends and family. Choose any meal on the menu.

We eat at The Orchard every single time we visit Cashiers - 8 times a year going on 15 years. The food is always delicious, hot, perfectly prepared and presented. The service is excellent and we have never experienced better ambiance in North Carolina. You should not miss The Orchard. Tell Chad and Travis "the apple lady" sent you.

I am not sure I would have rated this Excellent, but after the awful experience the night before, we could find nothing bad about the Orchard. From the friendly welcome, a waiter that actually knew something about the food, prompt drink service, we couldn't have asked for better. There were four of us, each ordering something different. Very large portions... More

So glad we got the recommendation to try The Orchard and happy that they were able to fit us in even though they were completely booked. One of the top ten meals I have ever had. The Pork was juicy and I could cut it with a fork, the special lamb shank was out of this world as well. Everything... More

Came to Cashiers for our anniversary to do some leaf peeping. The property manager for the house we rented recommended The Orchard for our anniversary dinner. It didn't disappoint; excellent service, atmosphere, food and drinks. The price was not exorbitant either. As the property manager described it, it won't test your Visa card. Now let me say, this is NOT... More

We had had a bad experience here in April, but gave it another shot. We are happy we did! Excellent waitress with great personality. The bartender came to the table to take our drink orders, and to deliver them. Flavorful steak. The menu was a little rich to go too regularly, but they were happy to make our steaks without...

My daughter and I came her for dinner on our stay in Sapphire. The food was excellent, as was the service. I had the salmon, and it was delicious. The restaurant is in an old renovated farmhouse, and there is plenty of parking. I highly recommend this establishment, and will surely be back!

I reviewed The Orchard in January 2012 with the same title: The Best in Cashiers. We spend our Summers at our home in Cashiers, NC. Over the years, our favorite restaurant is without question: The Orchard. It is owned and operated by brothers Chad and Travis. One or both are always there to greet you and honor your reservation with... More

The restaurant looks alike a small hours but when you get inside you see how large it is. The wait staff were friendly and the food was delicious. The do have a $25 corkage fee if you bring your wine which was a bit steep. The trout was well prepared and quite tasty.
