Went for salad bar. It was kind of lame. Service was slow. It may have improved. Ill give it another shot this summer. Prices were very reasonable. I have to say that the staff was very friendly. Perhaps it was an off niggt. Food was ok.

While this restaurant is considered "fine dining" by most standards, the service and food quality is lacking. Our server was not familiar with the chef specials being offered; when asked for recommendations from the menu, he could not tell us much about the dishes being served. The restaurant does have a small salad bar, but it does not come with... More

Will never go back. Ordered cocktails, brought wrong, three times. Ordered steak and burger. Way over cooked, sent back twice. Ordered the special which included dessert, which they ran out of, and would not substitute for additional choices.

We had delicious food here and were so happy with our meal! The service was excellent and fast! We enjoyed the filet mignon, the prime rib, and the salad bar!

Our party enjoyed filet mignon, baby back ribs, baked scallops and skewered shrimp over the course of the week. We enjoyed red wines running from $20-$75... More

Enjoyed a nice dinner while visiting the area for a long weekend. Wanted to enjoy a nice sit down dinner and was not disappointed. Enjoyed a relaxed atmosphere, and an incredible meal. We all ordered different cuts of steak (one of our party is a trained chef so very critical, he was even impressed). We were all pleased with our... More

We visited this restaurant on a recent visit to WNC. It was a Monday night but was rather busy. The service was very prompt and friendly. We had the escargot and crab cake. Both were served hot and was good. The salad bar was very fresh with many options. Loved all the olive oil and balsamic options. We had the... More

Last time in the area we ate here and loved it. This time not so much. Slow service without a smile and ordinary food. Perhaps it changed management. Will not return. There is a lot of competition in the area.
