This restaurant, located in an historic residence, is serving up delicious fare at an affordable price. Coupled with an exceptional, attentive staff, and warm, cozy atmosphere, and you've got a match made in heaven. The menu provided a complementary selection of entrees to meet even the most discriminating palate. The chowder was awesome and so was the shrimp gumbo, and it was just what we needed after spending a chilly day on Grandfather Mountain. The wine list included a nice selection of reds and whites, and we found the staff very knowledgeable of them too and quite helpful in guiding our selection. While we didn't have dessert we suspect it too would have been quite enjoyable. We highly recommend "In The Garden" to anyone looking for a great meal, complimented by a friendly staff, beautiful surroundings (including outdoor dining), and great value. We look forward to our next trip to Burnsville so we can try it again for the first time!
