This is my favorite in the state of North Carolina. In my opinion, it is the only true rival of Ben and Karen Barker's now closed (and greatly missed) Magnolia Grill. Incredible menu with excellent follow through; quiet but attentive service, and a beautiful ambience. Their wine list extensive and superb with a broad price point. My only reservation about writing this is that it will probably make getting a reservation more difficult; good to know I can eat in the bar.,excellent too, but limited menu.

A fabulous restaurant in a beautiful location. The restaurant is designed to look like
a barn, but what a barn! There is outdoor seating, an open kitchen and a
wonderful wine cellar. The menu changes often, always a nice variety of
fish and meat and an extensive wine list.
I eat here regularly and have never been disappointed.

Took my wife to Artisanal for her birthday; just us. The setting and the view were incredible (ate on the terrace). Food and service were impeccable. Couldn't have been a better evening and my wife really enjoyed our time there.

Just the drive onto the property will take your breath away, but wait, it's only the beginning!
A World Class dining experience in one of the most wonderful venues ever created comes next.
Creative Drinks and extensive wine list, you must try the Calamari Appetizer, everything feels like it was prepared just for you! Impeccable service and our server shared a recipe with my wife via email the next day.
Reservations a must although you can often do a walk-in for a drink and the bar menu.
Thank me after your meal!
