We love this restaurant. Have had several birthday celebrations, anniversaries and intimate dinners here. Wine list is very nice without being pretentious and food selections are always top quality and tasty. If you love the highlands you have to visit Rowlands! Give the Westglow Spa a try, too. I promise you will not be disappointed. Best foot massage since Thailand.

Rowland's is the dining gem at the center of world class Westglow Spa. The restaurant is situated in the mansion that was once the home of Elliot Daingerfield, a well known impressionist whose works still adorn the restaurant. The furnishings are a treat to look at as is every course presented in this elegant restaurant. There's an English long case... More

Everything is made to perfection. The staff is makes the experience even more of a dining experience. I have dinned at Rowland's two nights in a row and everything is exceptional, the sea bass is a must!

We made reservations well ahead having seen that Rowlands was one of the top 10 restaurants in WNC. We had to see for ourselves. They passed our test with flying colors. We were seated in the sun room and were immediately and continually cared for by Jessica. The menu had several interesting items that made choices difficult. I always opt... More

Everything at this restaurant was 1st Class. I would compare it any of the great restaurants in the Napa Valley. The service, presentation, taste, and view were all over the top. It was well worth the price and the drive up the hill.

A spectacular setting and view in the historical hope of artist Dangerfield. Great for a quiet drink in the cozy bar or the elegant parlour with views to Grandfather Mountain. Top class dining is offered and the house also features lovely comfortable accomodation on the upper floor. A must visit in the Blowing Rock area.

My how things have changed.. One of my most glorious reviews was for this restaurant a couple years ago,going so far as to rate it 5 stars in every category. After dinner last evening my rating has dropped considerably. The ambiance remains wonderful, table service good but that's where the rating begins to drop. Length of time between ordering and...

My wife and I were looking forward to a wonderful meal. After arriving, we were so impressed with the property, order drinks on the porch and enjoyed the beauitful views. Once we were seated, greeted by a nice waiter, we were served a little appertizer, with no flavor, maybe that was our first tip. We both order salads, could'nt believe... More

We ate their during our all inclusive stay. The first night was a 4 course meal. More than what we could eat. My wife was not feeling well, so the staff assumed she wasn't eating much because she did not like her chooses. So, they kept bringing her other plates to try. Even provided two deserts.

The approach to Rowlands is a hint of what to expect. We were given a tour of the house which is magnificent. Several parties gathered on the front portico to watch the sunset and marvel at the beauty. Dinner was on the sun porch which only adds to the elegance of Rowlands. The sous Chef was in charge this night... More
