My husband and I had dinner there while staying in Highlands. We've eaten there before and appreciate how every aspect of this restaurant is top notch, yet unpretentious. Making a reservation is a must and sitting on the back glassed-in porch, is preferred. Bring a bottle of your own wine, since this is a dry county, and they will accommodate you for a $5 brown bag charge. Had lamb chops on this visit and they were ultra-tender. My husband had the Chattooga trout and loved it.

After hiking all day and wanting some pampering, with delicious food typical of the area and good service in an atmosphere in keeping with this wonderful part of NC, we were sent here by a local artist who said it's considered THE place by the locals for 'special' occasions. We were not disappointed. Fresh mushroom soup was perfect followed by pan-fried trout and yummy twists on Southern sides Thought about going back a second night but...didn't...should have!

Good food with large portions. Went with a group of 4 and we all enjoyed our meal. Ask for a table on the patio--it provides better ambiance than inside seating.

We ate here while in Cashiers-we wanted a more substantial lunch instead of the usual sandwiches at other places. We tend to go for lighter fare in the evening. The trout was the best I have ever had and the vegetables were great also!

The trout was fantastic; everything is fresh and expertly prepared. Do try to save room for dessert, because the two we tried (brownie and key lime pie) were outstanding.
