Reviewed July 13, 2014

Escargot was fair. Rack of lamb and veggies were superb. Trout with browned lemon butter was pretty good. I'd go back again.

“Fine Dining”
Reviewed June 28, 2014

Being on the historic listed establishment and desiring a place a little less "touristy", we spent an anniversary dinner here. Food was well prepared - had prime rib and lake trout. Salads were average and dinner rolls were "store bought" Vegetable was al dente green beans. We both enjoyed red velvet cake for dessert. Service is adequate but lacking for fine dining. We ate inside dining room, yet we had to continuously "swat" flies -- makes us wonder what is flying around in the kitchen.

“Excellent- great meal....early bird a hit!”
Reviewed June 25, 2014

Huge delicious ribeye.....cooked to perfection. Red velvet cake to die for. My daughter wanted something other than what was on the menu and they made it for her. We were both satisfied when we left!

We had a lovely lunch. Hotel is beautiful. The service was good. The Buffet was varied with rib eye roast to individual prepared omelets. The desserts were lovely and quite a variety.

“Sunday Brunch”
Reviewed October 25, 2013

he Sunday Brunch at the Veranda (Lake Lure Inn) is very good and the atmosphere is incredible. We go every year and it is never a disappointment. Choices include omelets, potatoes, cheese grits, bacon, sausage, salads, fruit, prime rib, pork loin, french toast, chocolate fountain, and multiple desserts. It is a beautiful presentation and a total must for any traveler in the area. Advise to call and make reservations in advance.
