I had dinner at Wild Craft Eatery with my daughter and her room mate. I had the "QUESADILLA BAYAMO": filled with slow roasted coffee molasses pork, yams, shitakes, spinach & chevre goat cheese, over mashed pintos and cranberry salsa. It was delicious as was everyone else's food. It may have a new name and menu but the service and food... More

Nice and relaxing. Food takes a while but worth a simple hamburger. This place is right in front of Appalachian college.

Glad you enjoyed our atmosphere and food! As part of our new name and game we are striving to make our food both delicious and fast. While we didn't pull it off seamlessly the first week we feel confident as we adjust to the change in the menu we will be getting faster and faster whilst keeping our food fresh... More

Recent name change, but everything else is as great as it use to be! Wonderful farm to table menu. Inventive and unique options all at a reasonable price. As little slow at times, but not a big problem. Welcomes dogs on the outside patio -- a nice plus.

We stopped in as we arrived in Boone for a 4 day vacation. Traffic was heavy due to the college across the street. We picked this place because it was there & we were both hungry. The meatloaf & the hamburger were delicious. Some places they would have been almost the same meal but here each dish was very unique... More

We are so glad you enjoyed your meal. Much of the credit for our meatloaf and burgers must go to Hickory Nut Gap farm for providing the amazing beef we use, but we did work our spice magic on it :) Look forward to seeing you next time! More

I had the curry dish and added a hunk of wild salmon. A pile of broccoli and other veg. Great salmon perfectly prepared. Delicious curry. Reasonable prices.

Hob Nob offers a nice variety of salads, sandwiches, and other rather informal options that are delicious and filling! They also have a large covered outdoor eating area that is quite pleasant. Right on King St, so convenient to App State and local shopping.

If you didn't know how good the food was, you might pass this by. The restaurant is small (go early or wait) and low key. There is an outdoor seating area. Dogs may accompany their owners in the patio area. The menu is a sampler of many cuisines. All prepared with fresh local and organic ingredients. There are a number... More

My wife and I found this using TripAdvisor although we have certainly passed it numerous times. The waiting area is TINY unless you sit outside but all the outside waiting seats were taken. We were seated in about 10-15 minutes however. The restaurant was running at mostly full occupancy so we did have to wait for a drink order to... More

Excellent local restaurant with an amazing variety to choose from. Everything from Asian to TexMex. Local farms are used for many selections. Small restaurant with outside seating... So get there early and enjoy!

Nice to sit outside, even in the rain and stay dry. Burgers and smoothies were good, nachos were very good. Service was friendly.
