The restaurant is very lovely, has good service, but not too fussy. The food is good, Southern style. If you're lucky, and it's the soup of the day, get the crab & corn chowder. Husband had the short rib special, and it was meltingly delicious.

It was my wife's Birthday and this is her favorite restaurant in Cashiers. The setting, atmosphere, service, food and wine was perfect. Travis treats you like you are special. I only wish the wine wasn't so expensive. We'll be back!

We are a big fan of The Orchard. There are many wonderful restaurants in the Highlands Cashiers area. This one ranks right up there with the best of them. Not quite as pretentious or full of themselves as some of the others, it has never failed to deliver fine meals. Last night I had venison and my wife had salmon.... More

This is my personal favorite of the restaurants in the Cashiers Area. The food is outstanding. I've traveled a lot, dined at the finest restaurants, and none surpass The Orchard. Glenville Trout is my favorite, but every dish I have tried (and that is almost every one on the menu!) is distinctly delicious. The ambiance could be improved (call Francie... More

Great food especially if you love mountain trout! Service is excellent and not stuffy at all! Been four times as a tourist and can't wait to go back again! Gourmet food at reasonable prices!

Five of us had a wonderful meal at the Orchard. My husband and our friend had the Glenville Fried Trout and said it was the best he's had. The rest of us had the Franklinia Ravioli which was amazing. One of my friends is a vegan and they substituted marinara sauce. She said it was excellent. The ambiance is very... More

Our group of 8 had dinner there on a Sunday evening, all loved it. The special grilled swordfish was so moist and tasty, and I can especially recommend the quail sliders, and lamb chops flambeau. Every dish we had was presented wonderfully, and so tasty. Do NOT miss this restaurant if you are in the area.

For 14 years we have eaten here numerous times through out the seasons and never been disappointed. It is our families #1 go to favorite. Southern charm, mountain atmosphere and consistently fabulous food -time after time, meal after meal. Tell Chad and Travis the Hiatt ' s sent you - and dine on the back porch or patio if it's...

Wow, fresh trout prepared 4 different ways, delicious and fresh. Pasta with large jumbo scallops was awesome as well. Try the quail appetizer as it was outstanding. Fried green tomatoes were also very good. Generous pours from the bar.

Can't say enough about this place. Delicious food, good wine, delightful staff. Try one of the trout menu selections; I have not had one that is not delicious. For that matter, I have not had any food here that was not great. Don't miss this one. May need reservations a good bit ahead of time during the busy fall season.
