Elegant restaurant near the mountain cliff.

Gourmet food in a mountainside restaurant. Friendly hosts. Nice candlelight dinners for those special occasions. Excellent food but prepare to wait while the chef prepares it.

We went for dinner while vacationing in Cashiers. We have had several good dinners here, but this had to exceed them all. They use local ingredients and everything is very fresh. Looking out at the flowers in the yard was so relaxing. My husband and I loved the corn, bacon and apple soup. Joe, the waiter, was friendly and most... More

The place was really quaint and nice. The Orchard Chicken was perfect and we had a wonderful dessert . The value is very good for a place like Cashiers.

Went with the wife for dinner and we were impressed. Starting with the bartender and wine steward we had a good red blend recommended to us. Our attentive server was always timely but not overbearing - and he was always friendly. The manager stopped by to make sure things were going well. The food was fantastic! The restaurant is very...

The Orchard is absolutely the best of Cashiers. Love the Orchard Chicken and Trout Chatooga. All meals include a salad and delicious side dishes. We're grateful to have this restaurant and appreciate that we year rounders can visit in the winter.

My husband & I have been coming to the Orchard for 3 yrs & have never been disappointed ! The chicken livers are always ordered, without hesitation. We also appreciate that they have stayed open during the winter months for their customers. The integrity of the staff is quite refreshing. I dropped an expensive scarf on the floor & guess... More

Great ambiance, very good service; the dishes are too complicated for my taste. It would be nice it some more simple food were also on the menu. Travis and Chad are wonderful chefs.
