There were 10 of us who ate here....my wife's brothers and sisters and spouses for a reunion in Black Mountain. The owner was so accommodating...we had a great table, the server could not have been more helpful, and everyone in the group enjoyed the appetizers, entrees and desserts. I had the pot roast....out of this world. Fish selections were excellent...and... More

I have had the breakfast buffet at least six times; always superb! Mother's Day, Easter, Christmas, my birthday, Church dinners...these occasions have been delicious and fantastic. The desserts are awesome. Makes my mouth water just thinking about them.

We chose this Inn as the site for our destination wedding and reception. Our party totaled 16, including one 4 year old. Everyone was delighted with the style, service, food, and willingness of the owners to accommodate us. Because of the high humidity and temperatures we elected to have the marriage ceremony inside on the enclosed porch. Owner Doug was... More

Our family reunion had a nice dinner. Enjoyed the delicious scallop and flatbread appetizers. Crab and bean salad terrific. Desserts are overwhelming. The weak spot is the wine list.

We held our family reunion here for ~30 of us who stayed 4 days and it turned out to be a perfect choice for food, accommodations and hospitality. Plus it was conveniently located to the hub of town for an easy walk to food, shopping and the town Arts Center. Doug & Jenny work hard to see to your comfort... More

Excellent selection of unique dishes in nice casual atmosphere. Pork chop with homemade apple butter topping was fantastic. Wife had a really tasty spaghetti squash dish that involved mushrooms, spinach,and hashed potatoes I believe. There were like 9 dessert options, all homemade, all sounded tempting. Wife had bumbleberry pie which was especially good. I had junebug pie also good. Biscuits... More

Most importantly, I guess, is that the food was really really good. We were a party of 7, and we got 5 different things. All 7 reported to be excellect: pot roast, meatloaf, trout, scallops, spaghetti squash. Several had the soup of the day (chicken, kale, turnips, etc.) and several had house salads. Both were very good. Desserts also varied... More

This restaurant is in a classic old Southern home in Black Mountain. Bits wrap around porch has cosy rocking chairs to "set awhile" with friends. They specialize in traditional "down home" Southern food of the highest quality and their desserts are devilishly wonderful.
