Have been going to Lake Lure for years now. Wouldn't miss eating at Point of View. I love the scenery, the servers are a delight, and the food has always been very good. I would highly recommend it.

Had dinner there twice this trip of two weeks. Great view overlooking the lake and mountains. Excellent food, impressive wine list. Staff are friendly and fun as well as attentive. Knowledge of the menu is high. Lots of specials daily or weekly.

Been going there for 18 years last two times I've been there the food sucked raw meat or overcooked kids didn't like it. Rather eat McDonald's leftover food from a dumpster then eat that nasty food!

Although the "view" is across the street and through the power lines, the restaurant (if you have a window or patio seat) does have a view of Lake Lure. The visitor photo posted on the site by another reviewer as of this writing is accurate. Our server, Cathy, was delightfully candid about the menu and specials and we were not... More

This restaurant has a great view of the mountains and Lake Lure! The chicken parm was good! I didn't try the Prime Rib that was offered due to surgery and can't eat red meat for a while but noticed other peoples plate and it looked so delicious and so juicy!!!

We were a little hesitant to try again since they are under new ownership but boy were we glad we did! The menu so much better though we were glad they kept some of our old favorites. The remodeling really gives it a whole new feel and we're glad we gave them a chance. Definitely will be back, there are... More

From first looks, Point of View seems a little dumpy with it's white washed walls and florescent lighting. However! That is in no way a reflection on the food! The food is beyond fantastic, a particular favorite of mine being the trout. This restaurant also knows how to make a perfect baked potato. The staff is very friendly and always... More

First time eating at this restaurant on the Lake and we were not disappointed. First, the entrees were very creative and absolutely delicious. Shrimp and Grits with fried green tomatoes, chicken and waffles, and organic sirloin. The service was excellent. The owner took time to stop by and check in that all was well. The view is simply spectacular!!! We... More

We stopped here because of the nice view and favorable ratings, but were pretty disappointed. The food was average at best, although the menu prices led us to expect a little more. The service was very friendly and efficient.
