Very nice addition to Morganton.

Good wine selection. Casual but elegant. Love the eclectic variety on the menu. I took my out of town guests for dinner. Everyone enjoyed it.

Enjoyed another great lunch in Morganton today with a friend. He had the lunch special and I had the shrimp and grits. For dessert I had a small cup of the tomato soup, it was to die for! Cricket did a wonderful job of keep our tea classes filled and our meal moving. I can't wait till my next visit.... More

Decided to try the place because of all the good reviews, never stayed for food since it was so loud it was hard to hear a conversation across the table. It is a rather crowded place, i see here I am not the first to say that it is noisy. Wont bother coming back when there are much better places... More

They do have a outside area to eat which is really good. We ate inside because the outside was crowed. We when with a group of 7 and it took about 5 minutes for them to sit the table for us. The waitress was great with this group. My wife had shrimp and grits with greens on the side, it... More

This restaurant is in a great downtown location with outside seating. Great ambience and excellent staff! I had a salad with a bacon vinaigrette that was A-mazing! The spring rolls were cooked perfectly, but missed the Asian flavor I was looking for. My colleague also enjoyed their meal, but I can't remember what it was.

Root and Vine is a quaint restaurant. Menu offers a wide selection. I had the shrimp and grits with collard greens. Was a little apprehensive ordering shrimp and grits, at other places I had ordered the same, the portions were ridiculously large. Here , the portion was just enough. The shrimp were large. Very tasty and well seasoned. Service was... More

We met friends at Root & Vine for dinner and this was our first visit. We had to wait for a table for about 30 minutes but the bar was more than accommodating. Once seated the service was excellent, and the food superbly served. All dishes are wood grilled and seasoned just right. I had the Chilean Salmon and I... More

i was visiting Morganton on business and this restaurant came highly recommended so our group of four decided to make reservations. It is located on the corner of a Main Street in town with lots of local character. The restaurant looks as if it could have been an old drug store from the tiles on the floor and the ceiling...

We live in Hickory, NC about a 30 minute drive to Morganton to this Restaraunt ....WOW! Nice surprise. The cornbread (and gluten free) oysters w grits was amazing....one of best dishes I've ever eaten! I had the NC grilled trout w collard greens and my husband had the ribeye....everything was delicious. Great service. We will definitely return and highly recommend.
