If you are looking for the best mountain trout, prepared in at least 5 different variations...this is the only place. Think it might need to be a little Cashiers twist on the low country favorite, shrimp and grits, can't be beat.
Who would think the fried chicken livers tops your sweet southern grandma...they do. Lovely old cottage in a beautiful setting, excellent service owned by two really cool brothers, Chad and Todd. Consistantly on top of their game. My favorite spot in the old house or on the pattio...next to the fireplace in the evenings. They also have an awesome cottage to rent tucked back in a corner of the old orchard. Don't miss this classic spot. Need reservations!!

This restaurant is what everyone has in mind when in the "country". The rustic old building is a perfect compliment to lovely natural scenic town. The best part though is the well prepared, tasty food. Everyone at our table enjoyed their selection and our dishes of seafood and pasta and broiled (I think) swordfish was the best ever. Professional service topped of the evening nicely.

We dine at this restaurant annually during our vacation in the area. For the past eleven years we have eaten at this quality restaurant during our last night''s stay before returning home. The owners are extremely friendly and the staff is equally friendly and provide excellent service. The wine & food menu offers many choices and every meal we have had there over the years has been excellent. This is our most favorite dinner restaurant in the Cashiers area and in our top three for the entire Highlands, Cashiers & Franklin area. We love the Southern touch of the evening meals and have tried just about every item on the menu at one time or another during the past. We absolutley love this restaurant and can't wait to dine there during our next trip to the area. We highly recommend you try this fantastic restaurant if you've never dined here before.

I will get right to it.. Food was great.. the service was as always very relaxed. Living and eating here in this area it takes about 3 hours from start to finish. love the old house that was made into a great restaurant. The owners are always on site to make sure you are always enjoying you meal. The menu is always inviting and offers the best quality of food. We always get the Pasture and the sea... the Orchard Chicken or the Chimney Top shrimp. Comes with a great amount of sides and a salad. Will go back love to support Native people that offer a great service and that is good food and a great time.

Our only dinner out for our girls weekend. So happy that we picked this restaurant! The food is excellent and the service was superb! Three of us ordered the trout (3 different ways) and all agreed that it was amazing. I would have given the restaurant an excellent rating, but the noise in the large dining room was horrible. If given a second chance to dine there, I would ask for a smaller dining room.
