“Best Meal I Had in the NC Mountains”
Reviewed October 19, 2013

Came here from a train ride and decided to try some home style food. I'm from the south, so chicken and dumplings were an obvious choice. We had a short 5 minute wait and were seated in a dining room style eatery. Our order was taken quickly, and at first I felt a little worried that there would not be enough food. Boy, was I wrong. Each entree came with a HUGE selection of sides, enough to satisfy each palete, from sour pickled beats to delicious candied apples. This was the absolute best meal I had while on vacation and would happily return if ever in the area.

“Couldn't get in”
Reviewed October 16, 2013

Actually, I don't know how the food or service may be because I couldn't even get inside. I use a wheelchair and the only entrance I could find has steps. Have they heard of the ADA?

Seated immediately, served immediately, a genuine dining pleasure. Excellent ambiance with genuine historical touches. Love the front porch rocking chairs.

“Family Style Resaurant”
Reviewed October 14, 2013 via mobile

Great place to eat! Jarrett House is a 1887 Bed and Breakfast in Dillsboro, NC. The meal is served family style. Pick your meat from fried chicken, country ham, sugar cured ham, fried trout, catfish or chicken and dumplings. All meals served with mashed potatoes, green beans, pickled beets, cole slaw, candied apples, biscuits with honey and vegetable of the day. More than anyone can eat and so delicious!
