“The best restaurant for miles. Well worth a special trip.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2013 via mobile

Even better now that've added an outside patio. The food is always good. Even having just a couple of small plates instead of a main entree

“Blue Ridge Parkway culinary treat”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013

A pleasant culinary surprise! We ate here for the first time last year while on a motorcycle trip with friends. We visited again just last night as a dinner destination on another motorcycle trip. My husband had grilled trout and I had ham with bok choy (the same dish I had last time). The ham steak is not your typical ... Very good, although a little fatty this time. The trout was very good. The food is so good that we wish the portions were a little more! Nice, selection of wines. Chef Nathan and his wife are very good hosts. Service was excellent.

The place is continually improving on eating atmosphere, with now out door seating in a rustic setting. See you next trip!

“A hidden gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013 via mobile

My wife and i went to the knife and fork for our vacation blowout dinner. Everything exceeded my expectations. Our server was phenomenal. The chef took time to greet guests and you could hear his passion for his food when he talked about it. The meal was some of the best farm to table food we have had and remind us of the harvest table in meadowview va (barbra kingsolover's clan's resturant).

The portions are what one might expect at a fine dining restaurant, so be sure to ask before you order if you are concerned about how much food you will get.

If we make it back to Spruce Pine- the knife and fork will be a must.

“unexpected treat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

ended up at a B&B in Spruce Pine, NC after traveling down the Blue Ridge P'way. Knew nothing about the small town but B&B [Richmond Inn] recommended K&F. Not just good, but excellent. Modern American w. an Appalachian twist. Top flight service, superior cooking. Had cured trout belly starter and also ramps & shitake. Locavore. My wife & I had trout and hanger steak as entrees. Fine restaurant anywhere.

If you are looking for organic, seasonal ingredients, prepared in unusual and very tasty ways, with a charming table and terrific service, then look no further! I have never been disappointed - my favorite restaurant, bar none!
