We stayed at the Wyndham Resort at Lake Lure and they provided us with a list of restaurants in the area. Since this was right around the corner from our unit and we had spent all day driving. we weren't looking to drive much further.
We visited on a Sunday night and they had a special of 20% off the large pizzas. We tried the one with chicken, jalepenos, pineapple, onions and drizzled with ranch dressing. The spicy and sweet complimented each other nicely.
When we had entered the bartender greeted us, even though he was the only waitstaff and handling the tables in the dining room as well. He checked back with us periodically and bantered with some of the regulars- you could tell that he liked his work. Even though we were not one of the locals he made us feel comfortable and wanting to return again.
