“The Orchard is an outstanding favorite of mine”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 7, 2011

Cashiers NC is a welcome escape from the heat of Atlanta's summer. Enjoying the cool air, the mountain views and dinner at the Orchard makes for a great weekend. The food here is very good. The number of cars in the parking lot on a Friday or a Saturday night tells you it is a popular spot with locals and visitors. Reservations are a good idea if you want to avoid being disappointed. The menu is interesting ... some specials and stand by dishes like mountain trout and shrimp and grits. Everything I have ordered with the exception of a soup has been very good. The county is a dry one so you can brown bag your own wine and the staff will pour it up. People do and it works well. Last weekend our waiter added a little local history about how some of the dishes are named just enough to be interesting . The Orchard is a great place to have dinner... I hope to enjoy it several times this summer.

“Fantastic!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 2, 2011

We had dined at this restaurant a few years ago while visiting Cashiers and enjoyed it. Decided to try it again and were not dissapointed. My husband and I were offered a table outside on the patio. Really nice being next to the flower garden. Our meal was wonderful and our waiter served us well. Wish I remembered her name. We ordered mussels for an app. and dinners were the sauteed rainbow trout and shrimp & grits. Delicious! Don't forget to take your wine since they do offer brown bagging here.

“My favorite dinner during our stay in Highlands”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 1, 2007

My favorite dinner during our stay in Highlands was at the Orchard restaurant. The view was wonderful and the food was very excellent. I had salmon topped with avocados, mashed potatoes and asparagus. The salad that came with the meal was large and very good. We were also given a large basket of bread. This was a fantastic meal for the money. My Husband had a rib eye that was also excellent and of course I got his asparagus.
