While visiting Flat Rock, we stopped for lunch at Season's. It was en enjoyable relaxing experience. The staff is extremely helpful and polite. The restaurant is attractively decorated and immaculately clean. We had a party of four, and all of our dishes were excellent. The menu offered a selection of salads, sandwiches and even fish dishes. The salads were fresh... More

This is one of my favorite "semi-local" restaurants. It is a 40 minute drive and worth every moment of it. The menu is always different and leaves me wondering what I might have missed. There were 4 of us and we each had a different entrée and there were 3 appetizers plus 2 salads and 2 desserts. None of us... More

We are so happy that your recent birthday celebration with us was such a pleasant experience! In making a 40 minute drive, you expect it to be worth your while; and it sounds as if it was!

The Season's is an excellent, but pricy restaurant. The service, food, and atmosphere is excellent. We had the pork hop, sea food medley, bison meatloaf, and salmon which were all very good. Plus the wooded, private setting was very nice. Be sure to make reservations!

We had never visited your restaurant before although we're from the Hendersonville area. Had the pleasure of dining with you last night and while it was a buffet style dinner and not ordering from the regular menu, the friendliness and hospitality of your staff was more than enough to make us want to return soon.

The bar has a full selection of premium wines and liquors and the staff were very professional and attentive. However, the food was not up to the standard I had expected. It was Valentine's Day evening and the menu was pre-set. The meat was overdone and tougher than I would expect at a premium restaurant. Not a good value for... More

The breakfast buffet was very fresh. The oatmeal had fresh fruit and was served hot, the eggs were also warm. Each day switched between pancakes, french toast, and waffles. A lot to choose from between chessy grits, fresh fruit, cereal, sausage, bacon, and more. Excellent value with friendly servers! Can't wait to return!
