dinner was just average ... service was good but at $70. per person not worth the money. Breakfasy was as good as before.

I always love a restaurant that provides each table with more than one server and I never have to ask for anything because the server already knows what I need. So, besides great service the lamb and filet were amazing. Tender, fresh, cooked perfectly, beautiful presentation and exquisite sides also prepared perfectly. Deserts were key lime pie and buttermilk pie.... More

Food used to be at least average, but since national retreats took over, big management structures have done it no favors. Food more like assembly line, boxed or frozen poured into buffet line bins under hot lamps. Custom order service gone south, food quality and taste just blah

Highly recommended whether you're staying at the Inn or not. The food is delicious, the staff are attentive, the ambiance is wonderful and the nightly guitar music makes it all perfecto.

Ate here all our meals except lunches while staying at the Greystone Inn. Service and food was first rate and well worth the price. Allie, Sarah and Chris were all top notch!

Too heavy on the sauces. Not much in imagination. Extremely slow service. Needed to ask staff several time for items.

6 courses and lots of choices! Servers are impeccable! The smoked trout spread could be an entire meal it's so good! Can't think of a negative thing to say- you'll be delighted! And very full!

Dark and cozy at night with fireplace and guitar/singer doing some of my favorite songs (Neil Young!!) made it good, and the food presentations were delightful, just found six courses (!) a bit more than I needed, but began just tasting so I could last until my favorite all time NC entree--trout, came along-nicely encrusted and flavored with honey.

It's the reason we go to the Greystone inn, year after year. Hasn't changed from exceptional quality in 20 years.

I don't get the chance to go out to eat very often due to time constraints. The experience at this place was fantastic. We were treated like royalty by Chris the manager, Rolly, Laura, and all the servers. My first meal was so good I had the exact same thing (but a different dessert) the next evening. I'm not planning... More
