We've passed through Morganton a number of times but were surprised to discover such a great dining place we'd never been to. The food was uniformly excellent - my wife's salmon BLT was a messy mound of deliciousness. I had the special of the day, an enormous club sandwich. We lucked into one of the first warm days of spring and got to enjoy our meal on their outside patio. We'll be back there next time we go through Morganton.

Wonderful, eclectic fare, high end service and exciting dishes and desserts. Ask about the bourbon bacon brownie - in a word, "WOW!"

Hands down the best place for lunch in Morganton. The lunch prices are so reasonable, usually between $8-$10 for quality, tasty food. For lunch I have had the salmon sandwich with sweet potato chips (3 times it's so good) and the shrimp and grits (twice). The owner is friendly and inviting as are most of the staff. Dinner is amazing as well. Check out this gem in downtown Morganton. Also love the outdoor patio when the weather is nice.

Our second visit to this well staffed and well run gem in reinvigorated Morganton. If they prepare fish well, they must be OK, and all 4 of us had fish dishes very well executed. We had 3 of the 4 salad choices from the menu, which were also well prepared, well dressed and delicious. A bourbon, bacon brownie went home with us and was densely chocolatey and, even if lacking much bourbon flavor, the bacon adds an interesting crunch and tastiness. Good wine, beer, and drinks list, excellent wait staff, eclectic decor, just a great place to get value for your restaurant dollar. (Entrees in the $18. to $30. range)

We had a very amazing dinner starting with the fried green tomatoes they were just delicious! We each had a grilled wedge salad and shared the salmon over risotto . Very fresh and unique flavones! A very good crowd for. Week night! I Highly recommend dinner here it was very good and worth the drive down from Asheville.
