    My husband found End Post on line so we were delighted when we arrived to find such a charming spot. It has a beautiful outdoor lounge area nestled in the vineyard and the restaurant though small is lovely. Most importantly, the food was incredible! The beet salad was far beyond any we've ever had and the scallops were cooked to perfection and served on an interesting corn ragu. While the meal was fairly price it was well worth it for a special occasion.

    If you want to feel like you are dining in California wine country, and this is the place to go. The setting is absolutely beautiful; The ambience is outstanding; The food is amazing; and Dana, our server, was so pleasant and accommodating. And the wine list.... WHAT A SELECTION! I WILL DEFINITELY BE GOING BACK AGAIN, AND AGAIN, AND AGAIN. I CANNOT SAY ENOUGH GOOD THINGS ABOUT JOLO WINERY AND END POSTS RESTAURANT. If you have not made a reservation yet, or visited their website, please do so ASAP. You will not be disappointed… That is a promise.

    After having tried (and loved) the tasting menu on trip #1 to End Post, we opted for a lighter meal this time and it was also Outstanding (and I do not use that word very often). The depth of flavors that Chef Brian creates with such simple, fresh ingredients is amazing. The service is superb and the 'white gloves' appear to be a thing of the past! I highly recommend this hidden gem.

    Proof you don't need to be in a big city for fine dining! From appetizer to dessert, the Chef prepares elegant looking and flavorful dishes. Attention to detail is definitely priority. This goes for the wait staff as well. White glove service, detailed description of each dish and a genuine feeling that they were there to make sure our dining experience was perfect. Right down to providing a stool for my wife's purse when they noticed her put it on the floor! Nice. Highlights for me was the creamed corn that accompanied the scallops (who'd a thought??) and the pork medallions were tender and flavorful! Oh, and the polenta, and the use of baby herbs, and even the dark chocolate truffles at the end, and the cookies at the very end ... Nice!

    We went for lunch and had their special of the day - Fried Oyster salad and it was very good. The wine was wonderful as well. Our waitress was prompt, courteous and her timing was perfect. It was a misty/rainy day. The turned the fireplace on which made the atmosphere warm and inviting. We will be back. Thank you.

    Absolutely fabulous! We had the 7 course pre fixe tasting menu ($99) and it was superb - I highly recommend it. Chef Brian Brown seeks out the freshest local ingredients in order to create his masterful menu. You can tell that he is well trained by the complexity and layering of flavors in each course. The servings are ample - and you won't leave hungry. The service here is as good as it gets. The wait staff is very attentive and professional (although, the white gloves might be a bit much for Pilot Mountain). We look foward to our second, third, etc. visits in the near future.

    Dined on 7/12/2014
    The food is delicious, no doubt the chef's are talented. The ambience is wonderful but as it became dark outside, the lights were turned down a little too low. The wait staff were not in tune with high end dining. Since this a new establishment, this may improve with time. Waitress did not seem comfortable of when to interrupt the table and stumbled over the menu descriptions. She brought the wrong food to our table first, and then mixed up the meals within the table. The portion sizes were too small for the price and location. Dinner took about 3 hours and that was ala carte appetizer + entre. Although the service and portions were lacking, the savory tastes made up for it. Price range is VERY high especially for the area.

    Without doubt the finest dining experience in Northwest NC/Southwest VA. Easily tops anything in Winston Salem. The service is 5 star; the food is creative and truly excellent; the ambiance is intimate and inviting. We truly enjoyed our evening at End Posts. What a delight to find in our own back yard a dining experience that rivals some of the finest restaurants in the world. We have traveled and dined extensively all over the world. End Posts is a stand out. We will definitely be back, bring friends, and recommend to others! Thank you End Posts and Jolo for raising the bar in our region!

    For the area, the ambience was excellent, however the service and the food was average at best. The attentiveness was great, but the servers lacked the experience that usually accompanies a 200 dollar us meal. The tuna was over cooked and under sauced, very blah. The Bert and shrimp salads were enjoyable, but again more ho hum. The scallops were good, but nothing was exquisite or left us dying for more... The wine was served at room temp? On a 90 degree day a lukewarm Pinot Grigio was just strange? We'll be back but for a cheese plate and wine as they have a beautiful patio... For 200 bucks there are winston restaurants that will deliver food and service worthy of that price point. They should hunt down head chef Jesse Williams!

    This was our first visit to End Posts and it was one of the best dining experiences we have encountered in years. I would highly recommend the restaurant to anyone looking for a different dining experience from most restaurants in the Winston-Salem area. The staff was very professional and attentive to our needs; the dining room was inviting and somewhat intimate; the view from the building is magnificent; and lastly the food was tasty and of high quality. We will definitely visit again.

    We recently had dinner at End Posts and were very impressed with both the food and service. Certainly one of the nicest restaurants in the area and a lovely setting. Had the rose made by their winery and liked it very much. Both the food and the service were excellent. Would highly recommend this restaurant. We will be back.

    WOW - A very upscale dining experience in NC's wine country. Still going thru the start-up phase but clearly on the path to becoming the go-to place for serious dining. Remarkable design with several romantic spots for out-door dining and a great view of Pilot Mountain. Put together a group, visit some wineries and end up here for dinner. You almost feel like you are in Napa or Sonoma.

    When I go out for dinner, I like a quiet, quaint and relaxing place to eat. End Posts was that and more. The view of Pilot Mountain was like a picture in a magazine. Food was very tasty. Amber was an excellent waitress, knew the menu well. Mount Airy and Pilot Mountain needed a restaurant such as End Posts.

    Fantastic addition to the Pilot Mountain Area. A gourmet dining experience like this was very much needed in that area. The food was prepared to perfection, service was superb-top notch and the views of Pilot Mountain are beautiful! We are so glad that we chose to celebrate Mother's Day at End Posts. I had ordered the Rib Eye Steak-the best ever! Served under a silver dome-what a beautiful touch! Loved the JOLO Wines. Chef Brian is extremely talented- all the food had a wonderful presentation. We were told that all of the bread is hand made in house by Megan- the fan bread is a must try when you go there! The restaurant is very tastefully decorated-there were no details that were missed. We will definitely will be back again. Cannot wait.

    Food was marginal and expensive. I had the $16 Omelette (one of the least expensive items) with cheese and spinach-that is all I had on my plate-a small greasy omelette with very litte taste and nothing else-for $16 you would think they would provide a side item.

    Our experience was truly wonderful. The staff were knowledgable and present without being intrusive. Our firsts (tuna tartare) and main courses (sea bass and ribeye) were fantastic and the wine list was fairly extensive. The JoLo wines are worth tasting; however, like many new wineries need time to develop. We recommend their Grey Ghost Vidal Blanc and Happy Endings for dessert (don't forget the cheese plate!). We will definitely be back!
