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.

From the spring chicken breast and curry seafood entree to the red snapper special, the flavors and presentation were perfect. There was a mix up with my order, but our server Michael, handled it beautifully. The warm crab dip was excellent as well. I'd say the only negative was the noise level. There is a patio we would have tried... More

I love to eat somewhere that has options for those of us who try to eat low carb without us feeling like we are missing something or being overcharged for substituting or just not allowing substitutions at all and Root and Vine is not like this at all. I spotted pork rinds on the menu right away, which was so... More
