“Find this gem and give it a try!”
Reviewed September 2, 2014

The Buckhorn Tavern is near Lake James and Morganton, NC. Opened in 2014 after major remodeling, you might not guess that it is the oldest wooden building in the county. Let's just say that they did a great job! The food was awesome and includes items such as bison and lots of local produce. We went for Sunday brunch. Their other meals are dinner, currently Thursday through Sunday. This may expand soon, so call to check. There is a nice bar, which is a rarity in the Lake James area. It is a pretty drive out NC Hwy 126 to get there.

“Stop here if you're ever in the Morganton/Lake James, NC, area”
Reviewed August 13, 2014

We came upon this gem of a restaurant quite by accident and boy, are we glad we did! It opened its doors earlier this year (2014) and it is the best food we've eaten in NC so far. We had the buffalo tenderloin steak and my husband is still talking about it. Who'd a thunk buffalo meat could be so tender and delicious? Their caesar salad was memorable in that it has a hint of lemon, which was novel and oh so delicious. We can't wait to visit NC again so we can go back to this restaurant and try some of their other dishes.
