We actually were taken here by some new local friends we made while in Cashiers. They told us it was their favorite place to eat. It was a little pricier than we're used to but I wouldn't say it was over priced. The food is excellent. Great experience.

What a great "find" thanks to its #1 rating. We stopped in without reservations and were seated easily. Our server, Joe, did a GREAT job taking care of us. We liked that the bartender came over also to answer questions about our drink choices. Both of the recommendations were spot on. The building is very old - kind of like... More

We had a great meal with a mix of NC staples as well as great crab cakes. The inside and outside seating are great and the grassy area in the back looks welcoming for kids. A separate wine waiter might have been intimidating but was not at all; he was a great addition and very helpful.

After eating at four other restaurants during the week that were average or very good, we ate at the Orchard and loved it. The best restaurant we ate at in Cashiers hands down. Service was top notch from Joe and the assemblage of support staff (wine steward/bar tender, water filling staff, dessert staff, and the manager). The ambiance in the... More

Went to the Orchard for a birthday celebration with 8 people. The fried green tomato appetizer was great, and the cheese plate was ample enough for all. We each had a different entrée and there wasn't a reject in the bunch. All were cooked perfectly, fish was truly boneless, sauces were the perfect complement. The service from Trey and Joe... More

The Orchard Restaurant prepared fantastic meals for us. I had the Silver Run seafood and pasta, and my husband had the Glenville fried trout. They were both filling and delicious. We also shared the flourless chocolate torte for dessert, and it was wonderful - not too sweet, and had a delicious pistachio crust. It was one of the best meals... More

We were greeted and welcomed by three staff people on our way to the corner window table looking out on the flower garden.........beautiful, calm, country feel. One of our party has to have Brie if it is on the Starters menu. We all enjoyed. We were surprised at the variety of Trout dishes available and two of our party raved... More

We had a nice quiet dinner at the Orchard. It is a very southern menu. We started out with the bison corn dogs and the chicken livers served over cheese grits. Both the appetizers were delicious. Next came our house salads with the house vidahlia onion poppyseed dressing which was wonderful. I had the Australian lamb chops for dinner which... More

Met by host who acknowledged our reservation and escorted us to window seat with view of garden flowers. Trey, the bartender and wine steward introduced himself to inform us he was there to assist and would be back. He returned later for our order of a cocktail.
