We sat on the front porch as we brought our dog with us. The server was very friendly and went out of her way to provide good service, even bringing our dog water and a treat. The food was very good. One note to those planning on going there, they do not serve alcohol but you can carry in your... More

Visiting Family were heading home the next day and we decided to get pizza at the Amore so we didn't have to cook & it is close by. We order 3 different 12" pizzas, pepperoni, marghurite, & veggie. They were absolutely terrible! Crust was burnt, had a funny back flavor, and about inedible. Must say, they had plenty of cheese... More

So glad this place is open again- lunch 11:30 to 2pm - dinner 5-9. The baked Brie was perfect appetizer size and my rack of lamb very flavorful crusting with a Pinot sauce. The green beans crisp tender and the mashed potatoes flavorful. Looking forward to many more good meals.

I keep wishing and hoping and praying they will be open this season but I do not see signs they are open. Where shall we eat in Lake Toxaway ?

Every time I eat here I enjoy the food! I saw the review from August 2 and, yes, it was busy, but this is not Burger King. This is not fast food – not good food made fast – just good food! To me it is worth the wait anytime I'm here! Tonight there was a lamb special with peach... More

This wasn't our first time there, so we were surprised to have such a poor experience. We were there on a Thursday evening, there were open tables, both inside and out. We were asked if we had reservations, said no. Girl behind counter said, just pick a table. Ten minutes later she brings us a menu. We ordered, each of... More

We ordered fish and chips and a salad. The salad was good. The fish and chips was a very small portion, but tasty. The waitress told us she didn't give us very many chips (fries) because they ran out. We stopped here for lunch. Not much else in the area.

Dinner at Amore was a great surprise. Unassuming from the outside, and a log cabin atmosphere inside, we had reservations, fortunately--seating is very milted. But dinner was amazing. The chef is fantastic. We had flounder and trout. Vegetables were perfect- the brussel sprouts roasted perfectly. No wine here, but you bring your own bottle(s) and there's no corkage fee. Great...

This was the worst dining experience we have ever had!! We went here because of the positive reviews on Trip Advisor. Something went terribly wrong. We were told that since we didn't have a reservation to sit outside. Our waiter took our drink order right away. There were three other groups of two outside with us. It started off w/... More

My wife were on vacation in June we were looking for a place to eat and we found this little family run restaurant and I have to say that the service and food was great we even went back the next morning for breakfast. I would highly recommend this place to everyone visiting the area.
