“Well House Deli Cashew Chicken Salad”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2012

When you are roaming around the beautiful, little town of Dillsboro, NC, be sure to stop in at this unusual deli (located in the basement and original well house of the Dill home). The deli is located under several nice studios and local craft shops, and serves up some delicious food. Most luncheon items are sandwiches or salad plates. The food is fresh and portions are plentiful. We had the Cashew Chicken Salad--on lettuce and in a sandwich. Tasty, not your typical chicken salad, and obviously a local favorite. You order at the counter, the food is brought to your table, and you clean up your own mess. The deli was filled when we arrived but we didn't have to wait long after we ordered. No one was rushed to leave and everyone seemed to really be enjoying their lunch choices. They do serve dinner two nights a week (I believe Thursday and Friday) with their Prime Rib being the specialty. The atmosphere is cool and very pleasant on a hot day and the flower gardens around the building are very colorful and enjoyable. Also, be sure to walk over to the old well located in the corner of the deli and look down into the still working old well.

“Not as expected from past experiences”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2012

Had eaten here many years ago and was disappointed this time. The restaurant has a barn like odor when you enter (you don't notice it after awhile) but it isn't a great intro to eating lunch. We had a trio of scoops of salad (chicken, tuna, egg) that were too gooey and tasted the same. They were served on one lettuce leaf and there was one cherry tomato cut into 4 pieces as embellishment. The plate was not as we expected based upon the description. The service was excellent, cordial, fast. A good place if you need super casual, fast, simple but not meant to be a luncheon spot for ladies day. Definitely kid/family friendly and you could go there after white water rafting.

“Good food, small town flavor”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2012

I didn't see the faces of the staff when our party of 14 entered this small, local deli, but they were friendly and accomodating. The choices are simple and everyone said their meal was good. I had the Triple threat sandwich of meats and cheeses; it was fresh and delicious. Good value for the cost. Service was prompt, but our large group overwhelmed the kitchen and it took awhile for some of the meals. Great place for a leisurely lunch. Nearby potter's shop was a plus, too.
