Enjoyed a flavorful lunch at the famous flat rock with room. Went with the family and everyone enjoyed their choices for lunch. The entrées were plentiful and everyone left satisfied.

Very friendly staff with great service. Superb atmosphere. We loved eating outside on the porch area. Husband loved the food; I would order something different next time.

I had always heard that the Flat Rock Wood Room was very good and recently was able to eat there. It was excellent! I had the grit balls for an appetizer and then the barbecue platter and fries. The Miller Lite also comes in the...pint aluminum bottle which was a bonus. All of it was excellent and the service was great too. The prices were also very reasonable. I highly recommend going here to eat. There is something for everyone. The next time I go I am going to try the big pretzel, the burnt ends, and the pizza. This place is popular and fills up quickly so go early or go later if you can. Also if you need social distancing or like to find things to complain about (i.e. you are high maintenance), I recommend you stay home, make yourself a meal, and eat there.More

Large pretzel, grit balls and fries onion straw petals were off the hook just for starters. Next, we ordered a quarter roasted chicken plate with baked beans and mashed potatoes. Then, we got the smothered Mac n cheese n bbq bake! We will definitely be...going back to try other things as all these selections were on point. The service was courteous, friendly and quick (right on time with everything). We were early cause we just got off a long hike so we were there around 4pm but we could see they were starting to fill up by the time we were ready to leave. My 5 year old insisted that when we get home I need to give them a five star so here I am cause they were worth every star and the time to write this review.More

We called on 12/30/20 to make a reservation for 12/31/20 and they said no reservations taken. But they said the time we wanted around 3:30PM would be easy seating. They said they will be open till 8. Great it seemed. So come 12/31 at 3:30...we arrived and while all the employees were inside the doors were locked and sign said closed. So we called and they answered.... turns out the owner just decided to close and let employees enjoy New Years. I get valuing the employees but after driving 50 minutes from Brevard with guests to try his food that we talked up and we called. Not good. Since he has no care for paying guests and we called the day before we will not be back. Very unprofessional.More

We stopped here based on a recommendation on a rainy Christmas Eve and we could not have been happier! From the time we stepped in, we were greeted with kindness and the restaurant was very clean and decorated for the holiday season. It was such...a pleasure atmosphere. The sweet tea and Cheerwine were refreshing and just as expected, but our waitress, Laurie, surprised us with the appetizer special, cheesy bacon deep fried grits. They were amazing just drizzled in their sweet house BBQ sauce. I loved them and 6 was enough for me to take leftovers. This was the first restaurant in a long time that all 4 of us (husband, me, and our 2 kids) loved everything we had! My husband got the ribs and they were seasoned perfectly with the sauce on the side, how he like it. My son got the jumbo chicken wings and he said they were the best he's ever had and in his top 3 for meals ever! I had the piggie skillet which again, was amazing! It's the creamiest Mac n cheese, covered in pulled pork, with I think are bacon bits, BBQ sauce and green onions baked in a skillet. It was so good and some of the best Mac n cheese and pulled pork I've had. The fries and onion straws were perfectly hot and crispy and my daughter's grilled cheese with pulled pork was huge and just as good reheated the next day. I would highly recommend this place to anyone staying in the nearly Asheville area or passing through Hendersonville. If you go, enjoy and tell Laurie we sent you!More

No delivery but maybe you can order takeout -- but you'll miss the atmosphere.

Yes there is! Sorry I didn't say that in my review. It's a nice large area along the front, under the roof with ceiling fans. And I really appreciate that they haven't crowded the tables so it gives each pup their own... More
