The Homestead for husband's 50th - Restaurant Recommendation

Flying to Roanoke from CA for 4 nights at the Homestead. Got a screaming deal on a 1 bedroom suite with breakfast from Luxurylink. Restaurant reviews on TripAdvisor are not so wonderful for the resort :( We WILL have a rental car and can easily leave the grounds. We are from the SF bay area where amazing restaurants are plentiful! Not worried about spending the money IF the food is worth it. Any dining alternatives BESIDES what the hotel has to offer?
