This place had a great menu and excellent alcohol selection. Beware that they close pretty early though (9:30). We all became OBSESSED with the baked brie appetizer. The salads were also noteworthy.

Never had a bad meal hear. Great food, made to order, using local growers when possible. Outdoor seating also.

Have been here for lunch and dinner. There are always great specials for lunch. The chicken salad is awesome. Dinner is intimate with candles. Great place for a date night or a night out with the girls!

Lunch menu is usually a bargain and something a bit different then the usual. Relaxed and friendly service both day time and night time. Evening can be a nice social event for friends and family.

I went there for lunch last week, the floors were filthy!! The place had just opened and the tables were sticky with old wine! I went to the bathroom and it just got worse, 2 rats ran out the door and into the kitchen. I told the owner, but i was ignored. TERRIBLE place for lunch or dinner!!!

Wished we lived closer. That's how awesome this place is! Wait staff, Angelo, was attentive without being overbearing. Bartender, Cricket, was able to make suggestions of beer to try based on our preferences. And, then there is the food. Appetizers of oysters with pimento cheese grits, carrot/ginger soup, grilled romaine salad, filet and ribeye, topped off by the creme brûlée.... More

Delicious duck, gigantic pork chops, and luscious appetizers. The dining was delicious. Outdoor seating was romantic and set a beautiful tone to our meal. We will be repeat customers.

We've passed through Morganton a number of times but were surprised to discover such a great dining place we'd never been to. The food was uniformly excellent - my wife's salmon BLT was a messy mound of deliciousness. I had the special of the day, an enormous club sandwich. We lucked into one of the first warm days of spring... More

Wonderful, eclectic fare, high end service and exciting dishes and desserts. Ask about the bourbon bacon brownie - in a word, "WOW!"

Hands down the best place for lunch in Morganton. The lunch prices are so reasonable, usually between $8-$10 for quality, tasty food. For lunch I have had the salmon sandwich with sweet potato chips (3 times it's so good) and the shrimp and grits (twice). The owner is friendly and inviting as are most of the staff. Dinner is amazing... More
