Large group!

We had our terrier club outing at the restaurant. There were 11 humans, and 5 scotties. The food was very good, and the service was great. Everything was delivered in a timely fashion. I had the Fried Green Tomato BLT, the only thing I can suggest is to change the bread, the French loaf was huge... read more

We will be back in the fall. The views are good. The trip to here is pretty. It's not open all day. The food was good. Not sure what style that they are going for. Brunch menu is that only. We came in late. We were informed of the outages due to the special meals for brunch. My wife had... More

My husband ordered pork chops and our son ordered a steak which both had so much fat on them there was more left than what they could eat. Expensive price for not so good food!! I ordered shrimp and scallops and they left the shell on the shrimp at the end but they were under sauce and pasta so you... More

We've visited this lovely restaurant many times and highly recommend it. We especially enjoy the Prime Rib Special. It overlooks beautiful Lake Lure.

What a fantastic restaurant. The owner opened up early for us. She and her daughter were so gracious and kind. The food was delicious and we will definitely be going back again the next time we are in North Carolina!

The food is outstanding. I had the grouper and my wife had the clam. Both were a delicious meal. But the most outstanding was the vegetables. Instead of the normal French fries you can ask for vegetables. They were grilled and garden fresh. Outstanding place to go to gave a meal.

I've traveled to Lake Lure half a dozen times during the past 20+ years and a visit to Point of View is always in order. A quaint little place, the food is consistently good. Our most recent visit was July 31. We had the stuffed mushroom appetizer, which is still good and still served piping hot. I had a Greek... More

We had a window table with a nice view. It was a Sunday evening and there was one gal for the entire restaurant waiting tables! I felt sorry for her. Our food was awful, we had one bite, paid our check, without tip and left, we came home and had a glass of wine with a peanut butter sandwich! I... More

Little dated but food makes up for it. Green tomatoes are fabulous, some of the best we have ever had. Trout was good, oysters ok, and too many wonderful and unusual sides it was hard to decide which to try. Wish we had left room for dessert.

We have dined at Point of View several times in the past year. Point of View has become one of our very favorite restaurants in the Lake Lure area. The food is local food, prepared and cooked fresh to order. Pleasantly casual dining inside and a patio for outside dining with a great view of Lake Lure. Servers are knowledgeable,... More
