Best Meal between Ky and NC

We try to stop here on every trip! Sometime use this for trading the grandkids and having a nice family meal together, as it is about the half way mark. We have tried almost everything on the menu and love it all. Enjoy speaking with the owners when they have a free moment. Love that they have... read more

Delicious Russian food all made in house. Be sure to try the tea! They brew it over night and use the blossoms of the flower to flavor it. Home cooked meal that's worth the drive!

We really enjoyed our visit to Grill 73 on May 17, 2015. The food was absolutely AMAZING!!! An added plus was having time to visit with Valentina since we hit the restaurant between rush hours. You are such a breath of fresh air with your honest and energetic approach to life. We have recommended your restaurant to everyone we have... More

Three brothers and one wife/sister-in-law driving from St Louis to Hendersonville, NC after a strenuous "vacation". Bro #1 always wants to try a new route in search of nifty cuisine. Bro2 and I really wanted to press on, get to the house and have a drink. Diverting off of I40 to find some obscure Russian restaurant was the last thing... More

Three of us ate, and each ordered something different. Everything was delicious: fresh ingredients, excellent seasoning and textures. We enjoyed every bite! We had borsh, piroshke, shishkabobs and ravioli (I can't remember the Russian name!) We were so full, but couldn't resist sharing an order of the dessert crepes...YUM!

We have seen the sign here before but finally got a chance to eat tonight. We are delighted to have the authentic Russian food. Excellent seasonings, steaming hot freshly presented food. Delicious. Just like grandmother's old country recipes. We even got to order take home extras. Very reasonable prices. Decor was charming and the health inspection report shows 100. We... More

When you have a chef that makes authentic Russian cuisine....why have a burger! The fried cabbage pirochke were excellent! The scalloped potato pie very good as were the Cabbage Rolls. Valentina's sweet tea probably the best I've had. Very clean......including the bathrooms. Russian food is a little bland, but suited us well. Worth the excursion off the main highway.

The cabbage rolls are tangy and mild, but 3 aren't enough! When the owner asked what I wanted for dessert, I told her 2 more cabbage rolls. Can't get enough of this stuff. The owner treats all her customers like family.
