Glad we came

We had one of the best meals in town.. heck, one of the best meals outside of Asheville. There were four of us and each meal was declared to be delicious. The food was fresh, well prepared and individual. I had the shrimp and grits and they were the best I have had in a long time. The oysters... read more

If you live or are traveling within 50-60 miles of this restaurant, it is worth your time to dine there. Hubby and I live about an hour away, and try to go several times a year, especially for special occasions. We always say that we are going to put it on our list of monthly dining experiences. The food is... More

The lady that answered said its recommended. So I made one for 5:30. Having just arrived to town, we didn't know how far it was from where... More

We have eaten here every year when we return for our time share at Lake Lure for the past 15 years. It is consistently very very good. Prime Rib night is a must. Fresh food and friendly service. And a great view!! Thanks Point of View!

It was a lovely fall day when we stopped here for lunch. Ate outside. View was nice. Meal was over priced for an average menu. Drive to Lake Lure for better meals.

We really enjoyed our dinner at this restaurant. The service was friendly and attentive. We had a beautiful view of Lake Lure while dining. I had the Fish and Grits and it was delicious. Everything was fresh and well- prepared.

My husband and I have eaten here before and today we took our family. The food is super delish and the customer service excellent. We had a beautiful seat by the window overlooking the lake. Will definitely eat there again. Grace and Darrell Lewis

We ate at the Point of View on a weekday night and got there rather early. We were surprised to see the place filled up as we enjoyed our meal. We had a beautiful view of Hickory Nut Lake while we dined. The service was very good. The only disappointment was that we ordered one of the specials and then... More

We stopped there for their Tuesday special of Prime rib. Didn't know what to expect, we received our dinner and it was wonderful. The prime rib was exactly the way we ordered it. Point of view sits on a corner of Lake Lure. Would recommend this because of the great prime rib.
