We had different entrees at dinner, and we were both amazed by the taste and presentation. The chef does an awesome job in every way, and the wait staff is both helpful and wise. (No hovering, but always available. Perfect!) We could not have improved anything... this Inn has a great reputation for a reason... they do everything right.

Had dinner here with friends. The food was absolutely mouth watering! Trout and tenderloin were our choices for entrées. Then came the scrumptious desserts- hummingbird cake and chocolate fudge cake. What a chef!!!

My husband and I ate here last night and were completely blown away by the chef's tasting menu. This was as good as any meal we've had in DC or NYC - the combination of flavors, freshness of ingredients, and presentation were all outstanding. Scallops with beet puree, salad with granola encrusted goat cheese and fresh cukes,tomatoes, NC Tilefish with... More

We have spent at least one week a year for the past 5 years in Blowing Rock, NC. Each year we have taken a ride past the beautiful Mast Farm, admired its fabulous gardens, and said we would love to try it for dinner without the grandchildren who travel to the mountains with us. This year we stayed at a... More

Every course was more enticing than the one before. Mast Farm Inn cannot be beat for freshness and flavor. They are also very accommodating to the vegetarian palate. If you are enjoying the beauty of the Smokey Mountains plan for dinner at Mast Farm Inn.

That's the motto here, and it works! Everything is local, and they aren't trying to be pretentious, but rather serve a great meal. Excellent.

We came with high hopes but this restaurant fell a bit short of what we had read and had been told. Our bartender told us about the wonderful raspberry daiquiris she had prepared and we ordered a couple. When she delivered them she said she had forgotten how many seeds were in raspberries. She was correct. The drinks were tasty... More

My teenage daughter and I visited Simplicity on Saturday July 12. She had the vegetable dish of heirloom tomatoes, potato and fennel gratin, squash, and crispy kale and was instantly hooked with the flavors the chef is able to create. I tried the tasting menu of five dishes that ranged from savory waffles, salad (with a spectacular pea puree), shrimp... More

Amazing meal. Relaxed but intimate atmosphere. All food locally sourced. My husband had the tasting menu. His salad of heirloom tomatoes looked like a painting.

I ate a Friday night meal at the Mast Farm Inn, sharing the 4 course menu of the day and the Crispy Duck Breast entree and creamed kale with my wife. It was the freshest, most delicious meal I have had in years. The scallops on the 4 course menu of the day were the best scallops I have eaten... More
