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.

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
