This was our third time visiting Vidalia for dinner and it has proven to be one of our all-time favorite restaurants. The menu is creative and the food perfectly prepared and presented. The wait staff is attentive, courteous and efficient. Good drinks and wine list. My pet peeve is when a server addresses my wife and I as "guys". My... More

So glad they have expanded, added more tables. We still made reservations, and it was crowded by the time we left. The food is always delicious.. I had the Vidalia salad and the chicken n' dumplings which were a little different than your normal dumplings, but delicious. My husband had the chicken n' waffles which he said were also very...

We ate brunch here for my mom's 60th birthday as a party of 8. Our server was very capable and got every single order correct, which I find to be a rare occurrence! The food was enjoyed by all, everything from sweet potato waffles to shrimp and grits to a mountainous stack of fried chicken, gravy, eggs, and a biscuit.... More

Our friends had their wedding rehearsal dinner here and it was amazing! The staff was so friendly and accommodating and really handled the large group well (50+)! We ordered drinks from the bar and never had to wait. They have an excellent beer and wine selection! They were so organized, despite the fact that all bar tabs were individual. Since... More

pretty pricey menu but I have to say that the food there was excellent! From the salads to the meat menu everyone was happy with their dishes. The service was also excellent.

We split truffle fries and they were very good. I had the Chicken and Waffles, collard greens, with defiant n.c. whiskey infused cane syrup. Amazing. My daughter had the chicken 'n dumplings and her friend the meatloaf. All excellent. My only complaint is the price of my dirty martini - $16. Glad I only had one.

Vidalia is a culinary surprise in the small college town of Boone, N.C. There really are some trained chefs hiding out here among the hundreds of fast-food joints, pizza places, & great brew joints. You can start with the amazing vidalia onion rings; follow with a terrific "small" salad of local farmed greens, corn, seeds, tomatoes, etc, & follow with... More

My friend Shannon and I were looking for a great restaurant in Boone. We hadn't been there in years and wanted a WOW experience! Boy did we get one! The food was amazing, great service and my friend said she had one of the best beers ever! The onion rings were so good, as was the wedge salad. My favorite... More

Went for lunch on Saturday in October. We were fortunate to find a meter parking spot right across from the restaurant, and we had made a reservation since the website encouraged us to do so. The reservation was unnecessary at that time as there were probably only 3-4 other groups there at the time. Prompt service, waitress was great. We... More
