We just returned from Cashiers, NC where our son was getting married. We prearranged to have the rehearsal dinner at the Gamekeeper's Tavern. Leigh Coggins helped us with every step of the process by sending menus for food and alcohol and giving us suggestions along the way. They even had our favorite vodka for us. We arrived in town a few days before the ceremony and had a lovely dinner on their outside area. The food was delicious, service great and scenery gorgeous.
On the evening of the rehearsal dinner, the fireplaces were lit, bar well stocked and there were numerous waiters/waitresses. We even were able to bring a slideshow to play on the TVs in the dining room and bar area. The evening started with an hour long cocktail hour with passed appetizers: Chicken Satay, Wrapped Mozzarella Balls, Artichoke Brushetta and a cheese/vegetable tray. All were delicious and there was enough for everyone to have as much as they wanted. We used the bar area and the outside area for the cocktail hour which was perfect. The dining room was warm and inviting and comfortably held all 90 of us. Dinner included grilled Caesar salad, Chicken a la Cali, Sliced Beef Tenderloin, Carolina Plantation Rice and green beans. They even made 2 vegan meals for several of our guests. Dessert was white chocolate bread pudding and berry cobbler with ice cream. The food and dessert was scrumptious.
We had the restaurant for the entire evening (6 pm to 2 am). For the service we had plus the delicious food and great alcohol, we would have expected the bill to be over the top but it was very reasonable.
Anyone who is planning a wedding in the Cashiers area should consider Gamekeeper's Tavern for the rehearsal dinner, reception or for just a wonderful dinner experience. Thanks to all who made it a memorable evening.
