“Excellent Food and Great Views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2014

This is a family style southern restaurant where there is no menu. Everything they are serving that day is spread out on the table before you and you eat as much as you want until you run out then ask for more of your favorites. There was absolutely nothing on the table that was not delicious (and hardly any room left on the table due to all of the serving plates and bowls). I am not sure what more there is to say because it was all great and you are even allowed to take any leftovers home, so make sure to order more of whatever you might like to eat later after your stomach has returned to normal size. One side of the dining room is surrounded by windows to show off the picturesque views, so I would recommend asking for a table near the window. This will definitely become a regular stop anytime we are going anywhere near the area.

“Very unwelcoming. :/”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2014

My husband and I were on a tight schedule but we wanted to try and eat breakfast here after staying in one of their chalets the night before. I checked the website to see what time the restaurant opened the next morning and it said 7am. After checking out, we walked down the hall to eat and there was no one around to seat us or even welcome us. I finally found what appeared to be the host- I'm not sure, really- and he informed me they did not open until 7:30, which was not for another 15 minutes by that time. Unfortunately, we just did not have time to wait that long so we left to grab a quicker bite. Especially because it didn't look like they were even ready to serve anyone as no one was around to even ask for assistance. But, on the way out I decided to mention the time error on their website so in case other guests were on a schedule like we were they could be better prepared and informed. The receptionist at the checkout counter seemed to care less that we were incovenienced by this website error and did not even offer an apology, but instead gave excuses. Hotels/restaurants are all about hospitality and just acknowledging or sympathizing with a guests concerns goes a long way. It may seem like a minor thing, but it made a big impression on my family and we most likely will choose another spot next time.

“Again one of the Finest Southern Meals”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2014

We got to the Dillard House at 4:00 PM in time for the lunch meal and at ourselves into a food coma almost bad enough we could not drive back over the mountain to Highland. The fried chicken is still some of the best in the south. The cold slaw is just the way I like. The yeast bread rolls are sweet and good. The roast pork was bursting with apple flavor. The wait staff were great and helpful. The place does show some signs of wear and they were training new service staff while we were there.

“What a feast!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

We had lunch at Dillard House and the southern, home-style food was delicious! There is a single, price fixe menu and everything is served family style. This was our first time, and we were stunned by the variety and the generous portions. We were served fried chicken, pork chops, biscuits, corn muffns, strawberry jam, coleslaw, chow chow, sweet potato caserole, broccoli rice casserole, mac 'n cheese, tomato-onion-cucumber salad, green beans, mashed potatoes and gravy, lima beans, corn-on-the-cob and candied pineapple. Dessert was strawberry cobbler with vanilla ice cream. If that's not enough, you can ask for more of anything you want! We'd definitely go back.
