“Great find”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

Two couples finished our day of North Carolina wineries here. We were too late to see the vineyards but had a great dinner at Harvest Grill. The wine tastings and flights in the restaurant were dramatically served and very economical. The food was great and there was enough variety that everyone had trouble deciding. Offering starters, small plates and entrees...there was something for every appetite. The desserts were all delicious (yes, we had them ALL by choosing two samplers). We were also impressed with the cheese plate which focused on some local ingredients. Stop by if you're in the area. It is very close to interstate 77 and would be worth the trip.

“Excellent food, terrible service”
Reviewed July 4, 2013

Traveling I-77 and stumbled across this gem thanks to TripAdvisor. Drove about 2.5 miles off the interstate through some gorgeous farmland, back a long lane of the winery. The scenery itself is worth the drive. Has to be one of the prettiest places we've visited in quite awhile. The menu is limited but there is still a range of items to fit most palates. We tried the SW burger and the buttermilk chicken salad. Both were excellent. Wonderful flavors, very fresh, and filling. Be warned; the burger is messy but well worth the multi-napkin experience. As a side, try the key lime cole slaw. That hint of lime makes for such a unique flavor and gives it a burst of freshness and "summer." Just had to try the SW banana split. It was definitely worth our "sacrifice"; we would have licked the platter clean if alone. Unfortunately, this great dining experience was marred by terrible service. We watched as table after table emptied of those who arrived after us. Our waitress took forever on every aspect of our meal: greeting us, getting our drinks, taking our order, refilling drinks, giving us our bill and returning our change.... We were off the road well over 1.5 hours which was ridiculous given the size of the lunch crowd. Didn't seem like this service was representative of the restaurant but still. The food was outstanding but if traveling on a schedule, be aware.

“Lighter Fare, But Not in Price”
Reviewed July 1, 2013

Nothing can beat the setting for sure. It is picture perfect complete with babbling brook. The menu is limited just as Food Network chefs recommend. With a vegetarian in a our group, this sometimes can be a problem. There were several choices...he ordered the Southwestern Bean Tart and reported it was yummy. However, he did not know why it was considered a tart. His wife ordered the vegetable panini . She said it was Delicious but it was very small serving. My trout was dry and the serving was only one side of the fish. I've always gotten 2 fillets when I've ordered it. The relish was unusual but tasty. Are 3 pork cracklings worth mentioning? The potato salad was very tasty, The pimento cheese was on several plates. Its a creamy mixture, very light and refreshing. My husband opted for sirloin and absolutely loved it. He shared a bite of the spinach and I was pleased with its flavor and texture.

The food was excellent and the service prompt. The large table next to us was a little loud and we couldn't filter out their conversations. TMI .
Lunch with tip was a little over $80 for 4. If we had opted for an appetizer and a dessert, it might have been filling. As it was, after a quick wine tasting, we opted for large ice cream sundaes at home.

“The Harvest Grill... what a trill!”
Reviewed June 15, 2013

Wife and I travel to the area once a year and the Harvest Grill is one of the destinations we have to visit! The meal was once again out of this world. Took advantage of the special package offered at the Hampton Inn (which is managed by the same company that owns the Shelton Vineyard). The appetizers, main course and the desserts were out of this world! We started out with and shared the Crab Cakes and assorted cheese appetizers. Rib-eye steaks were both our selections for the main course and they were cooked to perfection. (Would recommend going with the red wine recommendation on the menu with the steak). Then… after all that … the desserts. There is a list of at least a dozen and all of them were tempting. In the past, we have chosen the “assorted dessert” item, but with the special package, we mixed it up ourselves. I chose the grilled pound cake with strawberries and ice-cream. My wife selected the 3 Sherbets. Needless to say, we both had to loosen up a notch on the belts… what an evening.

“Order to-go!”
Reviewed June 5, 2013

The day we visited the winery was sunny and pleasant, so we asked at the Harvest Grill if they would pack a 'to go' order that we could eat outside. They did, and it was wonderful! We had an order of fried duck wontons and a toasted grilled chicken sandwich with some kind of delicious slaw on it. While we waited for our order, we previewed a few of their wines right there in the restaurant lobby. When our order was ready, we took it to one of the picnic tables outside and ate it amid the gorgeous surroundings. Definitle a formula for a wonderful lunch.
