Excellent Easter Dinner!

Six of us went to Point of View for afternoon Easter dinner and the menu was great - deliciously tender prime rib, heavenly ham and trout. It was as close to a home cooked dinner as you could get! Hope to get back there soon.

We spent a few days in Lake Lure, for our 44th anniversary. We ate at the Point of View on a Sunday although we had planned to have our anniversary dinner elsewhere on the following night. However, our Sunday meal was so good that we went back on Monday to celebrate. We had the filet mignon, which was cooked just... More

On my birthday snow was forcast for Lake Lure and almost all places were closed. I called to see if Point of View was open and the owner stated no, because of no help; however, when she found out it was my birthday she stated "come on and my husband and I will cook for you and your party" What...

A large group of friends and I visited Point of View for lunch one afternoon while vacationing in Lake Lure. The owner was extremely friendly and made all of our food in a very timely manner. If you stop in, have Susan make you a bloody mary! They were delicious! I only rated the bar scene average because my group... More

This is a restaurant that I have given high marks to in the past. They clearly over shot their level of competence on February 14. For the fixed menu the appetizer was average, the soup thick, lumpy and bland, the salad very average and small, the main course- Rack of Lamb had a coating that offer almost a fried/burnt taste...

Our group of 10 was from Charlotte, in Lake Lure renting a cabin to celebrate a friend's birthday. The staff at Point of Veiw was small and extremely friendly and attentive. The owner, Susan, waited on us personally and she was hilarious. The food was SO good. Despite the small staff, our food came out quickly and without mistake. Everyone... More
