We are recently returned from France, Germany & Austria, where we dined royally in some phenomenal locations. But still the Restaurant at Gideon Ridge is where we have eaten the tastiest steak, served the most graciously, on the loveliest terrace, with views out over the most spectacular mountains.

Had a fantastic evening here. Sat outside on a crisp cool night and every part of meal was superb.
Call instead of trying to book online as they may still have room when it says they are sold out.

We were in Boone in February but snow prevented us from getting to Restaurant G so it was top on the list for this visit. We were greeted warmly and invited to sit in the den area and enjoy a drink before dinner. In a few minutes we were asked if we would rather dine inside or out. Even though it was a little cool, about 65 degrees, we chose the outside patio . We were given our choice of about 10 tables with various views, all of the beautiful. We chose wine, the crab cake appetizer, the garden and spinach salads and both chose a beef tenderloin for the entree. The food presentation and preparation were 1st class as was the service. We will return and have already recommended it to friends who vacation here.

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!!
