My girlfriend and I were on our way to Blowing Rock last Thursday for a long weekend and decided to go a long way to get there from Raleigh just so we could have lunch on the patio at the Root and Vine restaurant downtown Morganton. This place is excellent and does everything right. This was my forth time eating... More

Food & drinks were on the pricey side but to get that type of FRESH food and local (also others) microbrew it was well worth it. My wife and I sat outside and although it was a hot day we stayed shaded and very comfortable. They do have a bit of a nuisance from the flys, but we were outside... More

Coming from Charlotte where we have lots of incredible dining options we didn't expect to have a meal of this caliber in a small town. From our appetizers to our entrees to desert the entire dining experience was extremely good. We even considered going back the second night we were in town! We will definitely return on our next trip... More

Visiting Morganton camping in nearby S. Mountains State Park and celebrating our 49th anniversary. I read the "terrible" reviews and chose to ignore them because of the number of excellent reviews. Believe the excellent ones. They have a very nice patio to have a drink before dinner or to eat outside. Located on a street corner but noise not a... More

My daughter and I stopped here on our way to Asheville. We had our dog with us so we were limited in our choices. But definitely there were no limits on this really good experience. We dined on the patio so our dog could join us. The wait staff was very courteous and brought Dottie a bowl of water too.... More

My wife and I tried this recently after hearing about the place from friends. The service and food quality were first rate. This restaurant is located in a downtown location in Morganton and offers indoor and outdoor seating. About the only negative was the menu's were in a plastic sleeve. Sounds picky, but this place charges for the premium food... More

The wait staff was gracious and asked beforehand of we wanted to sit indoors or on the patio. Nice selection of mixed drinks and beers. The food was great and presented in large portions. The crab cakes, although not fresh, was plated beautifully with fried green tomatoes. The cook is willing to work with you if you are a vegetarian,... More

I was not expecting the caliber of meal that this place delivered. All four of us sitting at the table were blown away. I'm from south Florida and would like to think I have fairly high standards when it comes to foods. This restaurant greatly impressed me. I had the filet with the (Amazing) Blue cheese sauce, along with the... More
