Not sure how long this has been as I had not been there in a few weeks. Sorry to see them go as it was always a pleasure to visit. Hey Christie, hope all is well with you and yours.

Food was cold and home cooking was a lie. You can tell the difference between pre packaged and home made. Who are these people trying to kid? A bad sanitation grade that I only seen after I ate. Yes the food was that horrible. Bad when it tastes so bad you look for the grade and you have to ask... More

Our waitress seemed to be in another world. After sitting at our booth for a while, she finally came to get our drink order. She came back a while later and forgot she even asked for our drink order. Then she took our food order and we waited at least a half hour, then she came to say they were... More

I do apologize for your service, we just hired her and she has been reprimanded, she has no experience waiting tables, not full service like us and she was just over whelmed and didn't want us to think she couldn't do it if she ask for help. We strive for the best service possible, but unfortunately when you have to... More

I did not feel welcome. My son and me was very disappointed in the food and the service. We both had a couple of side dishes we couldn't eat, told the waitress and she didn't care and didn't want to replace them. The bill was 20.00. Certainly not worth it. The attitude was I don't care. Never offered to refill... More

I'm a "Yankee" from the Philly suburbs, where it's normal to see a Catholic church on every other corner. I'm now in the Bible belt in NC. We stopped in a gas station and asked for recommendations for lunch. We were directed to the Shepherd's Table and never really made the biblical connection until half-way through the meal. The building... More

We went for a mid week dinner for 2 and will be going back. The food was very good, good portions, and the dessert was great. We had open faced roast beef, mashed potatoes, and mustard greens with one meal- the other meal was meatloaf mashed potatoes and green beans- both meals were delicious but took a bit longer than...

The Shepherd's Table is comfortable and the country cooking is first class. My particular favorites are the meat loaf and open face roast beef sandwich. The potato salad is as good as any I have had. They also do a nice job on the apples and mustard greens. We do not travel to the Blue Ridge area without working in... More

I am naturally wary of "southern cooking" places. I have some excellent home cooks in my family and it is my experience that most places fall well short of my expectations. It doesn't help that I am a picky eater. We tried The Shepherd's Table on a whim. It is hidden on a hill and you could easily drive past... More
