“Many options”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2013

We went for a nice dinner, the atmosphere was lovely, our server a bit overly attentive but the food was quite nicely made. We were able to buy a bottle of wine and have it corked which was a good option.

“Great food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013 via mobile

We had super food and great friendly service. The cost is a little high, but we have decided that this is one of the top two places to eat in Banner Elk.

“Excellent food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

I had the spinach and artichoke dip, and the alfredo, and both were delicious (and large portions!). The server was very attentive, friendly, and jovial. Though the food was obviously freshly prepared and home made it still came out quickly! I will most assuredly be returning to sample the rest of there menu selections!

“Excellent, both creative and basic meals”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013

A group of six, we had a wonderful meal. Two pizzas, very nice crust and a just-right amount of topping and cheese. Our basic eater had penne with marinara and it was just fine. I had an excellent Mediterranean salad preceded by an amazing artichoke heart appetizer. Can't wait to go again.

“The Hidden Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

I had been here before and had one of the best Chicken Marsala meals ever. I went back again 3 years later and they did not disappoint. I highly recommend the food. The service is a little slow, but its a family feel and the great food more than covers the mediocre service.
