I read the reviews here and elsewhere, they right. The bread (rolls) are made in house and were mouthwatering. The Brussels sprouts app was delicious. Try any of the pizzas, and the salmon was good too. Caitlyn was a great server. Amy as greeter was...More

This was a fabulous restaurant all the way around. An extensive menu with interesting dishes. The octopus appetizer was to die for. The trout was the best I had. Make sure you dine on the patio!!

Great menu. We sat outside and really enjoyed the ambiance. The fried oysters on pimento cheese grit appetizer was exceptional. I look forward to my next trip!

The wood fired octopus was tender and charred and wonderful. The selection of wines was both exceptional and affordable even by the bottle. The presentation of all the dishes were impressive. Two, separate bars. One side quiet, one bawdy. Great food, service and value!

I’ve probably been to this place 30-50 times. The food here is excellent. The pizzas and drinks are really good. This restaurant is very important to Morganton and I wish it continued success.

We enjoyed our dinner meal at Root and Vine. The food was good. For some reason both the pork chops and trout were blackened? Still very good. Service was prompt, knowledgeable and attentive. The acutal restaurant is dark, chopped up and furnished with all kinds...More

Salads and sandwiches are prepared fresh so things can be omitted as requested. They have three vegetarian options but I'm a meat eater so I have not really looked. My vegetarian and no gluten friends are quite happy there.
