My daughter and I stopped here for dinner after a day of hiking, because there were so many cars there, it had to be good...located on a site with a covered bridge over a mountain stream, and a porch furnished with rocking chairs for those waiting, I wanted to wait longer, it was so charming. The owners were pleasant and... More

I love the Caro-mi it's one of the most unique and charming places around. Everyone I have ever taken there has loved it and gone back again and again. I'm a country ham girl and the slaw and macaroni salad as appetizers are top grade. If you don't like southern cooking please don't bother to come , but if ham... More

A real treat when we make the trek to Caro-Mi Lodge. We have always enjoyed our food. The country ham is my husbands favorite and I love their trout. The sides are always prepared southern style with the slaw being a little 'different'.

Dinner at Caro-Mi was very good last Saturday night. The restaurant is open Wed-Sat only. Times are on their website as is their menu. The menu is very heavy on fish. Fried chicken, chicken tenders and ham are available. Sides are served family style and you can get refills on the sides. Green beans, macaroni salad, cooked apples. Baked potato... More

We ate dinner here recently. We had eaten here years and years ago. We ordered rainbow trout, cold boiled shrimp and fried shrimp. The rainbow trout was quite good but was doused in a almondine butter - really almost ruined the fish. My son ordered cold boiled shrimp and got 8 pieces of shrimp for $17. This is a unique... More

If you are "traveling through" do not expect a franchise type restaurant like many younger folks are used to. It is a cabin style building with big front porch with rockers facing a beautiful mountain stream. Walk across the covered bridge and step back in time. Simple place, simple menu, good service, family owned and run and almost an institution... More

Traveling through Tryon, NC today and decided to check out this place. Our first visit and I last visit! There is a beautiful stream that flows in front of the restaurant which makes waiting for a table a pleasant experience. Once inside, things change. There is a one page menu of items to choose from. If you do not eat... More

This is just a favorite and has been since moving to the area twenty three years ago. We have never had a bad meal here in all that time and you just can't beat the atmosphere. It's like you stepped back to the day when life was a slower pace and great southern food was on every table. The fried... More

The absolute BEST country chicken livers around! The marinated slaw and macaroni salad is to die for. The old fogies that own the place are rude, hateful, and downright mean! This little place has been a family favorite for over 25 years. We drive over 45 mins one way 6-8 times a year. We come for the FOOD--not the hospitality.... More
