“Great Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 6, 2014

Vidalia is consistently one or perhaps the best dining bisros in Watauga County. It has both a core menu and daily specials. The setting is small and definitely requires reservations to insure seating. Food is master chef quality in presentation, creativity and a delight to the palate. We have been there a half dozen times. We have enjoyed the chicken and dumplings, crabcakes, roast elk, sturgeon, and Ahi tuna. All exceptional! Full bar and good wine selection.
On one occasion staff was less than friendly but that seems to have been an anomaly.

“Chicken and dumplings”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 2, 2014

Quant small cozy bistro style in downtown boone. I has the onion rings as an appetizer. They were large, not greasy and delicious. The chicken and dumplings were tender and the dumplings were like little bits of heaven. They prefer reservations get the Mac and cheese as well.

“Best in Boone”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 11, 2014

We ate here about 3 years ago, and it has gotten even better. There is not doubt that this is the best restaurant in Boone. Good service, food, and good local dishes. Nice wine selections.

“Found this gem while on vacation...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2014 via mobile

Great staff, friendly & attentive. From just the 2 separate dinners we chose I wish I could've sampled a little of everything everything. Starter: Cracklin Mac & cheese...awesome
Meal 1: Chicken & Waffles..awesome
Meal 2: Meatloaf (best I've ever had)
Prices were very reasonable...
A must if you're in the area

“Always Amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2014 via mobile

I have been a loyal costumer of Vadalias since they opened.

I have probably eaten there well over 30 to 40 times over the years and I have never been disappointed.

They deliver consistently great food and service every time. High quality ingredients from farms and vendors I know. Couldn't be happier.

Thank you Sam and the whole gang for another wonderful birthday celebration. Well see you next time!
