“WOW, what a find!!!!”
Reviewed July 20, 2013

You can be a little hard to please when you live in a very metropolitan area and then take a vacation to a less populated area, at least when it comes to variety and quality. Not at the Point of View Restaurant. We were lost when we first arrived, so we actually stopped to ask directions. The staff, and then the Owner went out of their way to assist us.
When we returned a few hours later to dine we realized that being lost was a great thing, at least in this case. The food and service here is just remarkable!!!!! Everything ordered arrived just as requested, and the quality of everything was fabulous!!! From the salad dressing to the dessert, it was one excellent meal!!!!
Can't wait to come back this way again.

“Great food and great service with a beautiful view”
Reviewed July 16, 2013

Point of View restaurant is not fancy and casual dress is appropriate, including shorts and sandals. The restaurant sits at the end of a slew of Lake Lure. Most all seats in the restaurant have a view down into the lake. Reservations are highly recommended. The food is fresh and wonderful and the staff takes great pride in providing efficient servce. I had sauteed trout which was excellent and plentiful. The side items and salads were equally as good and fresh. The restaurant has beer and wine available. It is a great restaurant with a great view and wonderful and plentiful food. You will be happy you dined there.

“Small Place with Big Menu”
Reviewed July 14, 2013

This restaurant is not on Lake Lure, but still offers a view. The menu had so many wonderful dishes that it was hard to choose. We had the escargot (which you cannot get in many places). What a surprise! They were wonderful. I had Veal Picatta, which was great. My husband had the Trout, which was also very good. Treat yourself to a very nice meal if you are ever at Lake Lure. Reservations might be a good idea. The restaurant is not large. Enjoy!

“Great View Only”
Reviewed July 7, 2013

Our family ate supper at the restaurant. I called for reservation, the person on the food was not overly nice. I thought twice about canceling. We went. The wine was great. The salad was okay and they said all dressings were home made. I ordered bleu cheese. If it was bleu cheese it did not have the cheese in it. The prime rib was overdone. The shrimp were cooked too much. Knives had fingerprints all over them. The waitress asked for new ones and the lady that brought them asked her why she needed new ones right in front of us. The decor does have a lot to be desired.
