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.
