“Mmmmmm ...”
Reviewed July 10, 2014

This was our first dining experience at Gideon Ridge, as we usually get into the Blowing Rock too late or too tired for a "formal" dinner. What a fantastic surprise! From the Artisan Cheese Plate to the Amberjack and the Pork Chop dinner specials, to the unbelievable Strawberry "Shortcake" that was more like a taste of Heaven itself, there was nothing we didn't enjoy! We ate outside on the big patio on a perfect summer evening … our waiter was so personable and attentive … the wine was a perfect complement to our dinner … the coffee at the end was delicious … it couldn't have been any more delightful! Although the menu looks "formal" and we were concerned about having only travel attire, we were not at all uncomfortable … other guests were dressed as we were, and others were in dressier attire. This was a wonderful experience that we will plan on having again in future visits!!

“The best”
Reviewed June 14, 2014

The ambience is wonderful, the food outstanding and the view superior. For your special dinner in Blowing Rock this is the place to go. To stay here for a weekend would be the best way to enjoy the Blue Ridge Mountains. For a more casual dinner go to Bistro Roca which is also owned buy Gideon Ridge.

“Excellent Food excellent presentation”
Reviewed June 4, 2014

Three course meal was prepared in an outstanding way with all choices being freshly delivered that day. The staff was most helpful and friendly. North Carolina was having a promotion for restaurant week for $30 per person which was nice, but bill still cost $100 after drinks and dessert. Not for children.
