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.

Unfortunately we relied on the previous reviews thinking the food would be great..wrong! Servers were very nice, but the food was not good. Our table was placed next to a long planter full of dirt and dead plants. The place lacks presentation and seasoning on the entrees.

I was told to go to this restaurant for the mountain trout. Even though I like to eat fish, this made me a bit hesitant, because I’ve had trout at a lot of restaurants and never was very impressed. At Point of View, however, I found the lightly fried trout excellent. I’m not big on grits either, but theirs came... More

Recently vacationed in Lake Lure NC. Found this restaurant by accident but there were lots of cars in the parking lot so we thought it was a safe bet. Walked in, and was greeted right away by the owner who sat us at a great table by a large window that over looked the mountains and a beautiful lake. The... More

The only thing that beat the view and the service was the King Crab Legs! Nice, cozy and romantic atmosphere. Truly one of a kind view and terrific food. How can beat that.

If you are in the lake lure area this has to be on the list of restaurants to enjoy your dinner. We were a party of seven. All had a variety of food. All of us enjoyed. And I was with some lucky eaters. Go sit on the deck order a bottle of wine and enjoy.
