Lovely restaurant, gorgeous patio view of the mountains! Waynesville’s hidden gem! Excellent! We were a large party who were graciously and cheerfully accommodated. We were all (ages 11-78) delighted with the range of options on the menu. We were even more delighted by the delicious and interesting preparation of our dishes, especially as we had many different selections. Also best rolls in Waynesville hands down! Desserts also great! We will be back very soon and promise to give heads up on our party’s size. Thank you for a lovely meal and evening.

The appetizers were good, but the non -vegetarian platter was quite meh. They were really pushing the combo platters too. Service was great and the ambiance was very nice.

About the restaurant
Nestled in the heart of downtown Asheville, decorated with carvings, and statues imported from India. Mëhfil brings you authentic Indian food in a beautifully relaxed atmosphere.
Come enjoy a casual meal with friends or a celebration with your loved ones. Either way, you'll be taken care of by our knowledgeable and friendly team. We take pride in what we serve and how we serve it - Good Food and Great Service. We also offer takeout, delivery, catering and in Jul 2023 we have added Mow, Mehfil on Wheels, a food truck serving Mehfil food. Mow is a regular at the local breweries and can even come in to your neighborhood. Our signature dishes include the lamb chops, goat curry, deluxe mixed grill-an assortment of lamb and chicken seekh kebab, tandoori shrimp and lamb chops. No one does the tandoor as good us and our awards are testimony to that.

The Rocky Face Tavern at Springdale Resort has become one of Western North Carolina's favorite destinations. In the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains, under the shadow of Cold Mountain with sweeping views of the Rocky Face Mountain, our upscale casual dining experience will soon become your favorite choice for a night out!

A most unusual dining experience. The view of the Blue Ridge Mountains is spectacular, but so is the four-course gourmet meal.

About the restaurant
**To purchase tickets, reserve one of our experiences, please see the options listed below.** Established in 1998 by Susan and her husband Stoney Lamar, The Purple Onion was conceived as a 'third place' in Saluda, a neutral spot for friends and family to enjoy great food, engaging conversation, and live music. This vision flourished with a dedicated staff and supportive community. In 2020 the legacy was passed to Chambli Stuber and Emily Lamar, who continue to honor its tradition and role in the community, celebrating over two decades of service. Situated in historic Saluda, The Purple Onion boasts outdoor dining and live music on Thursday and Saturday nights. The Purple Onion features a variety of ethnically inspired dishes with an emphasis on the Mediterranean’s simple and healthy cuisine. We offer a selection of pizzas, pastas, seafood, vegetarian and meat dishes. Specialties include locally sourced trout and organic produce, along with antibiotic and hormone-free meats and poultry.

Eaten here 4-6 times a year since they opened a decade ago. Wife and I grew up in large cities with great restaurants. Posteros is the high quality restauarant you will find in New York City, Boston, St. Louis, Cleveland, Chicago or any other major city and at a great value. Posteros always - every single time - turns out delicious meals. There are a few other good establishments in the Hendersonville/Asheville area but NONE can match Posteros. Enjoy!

About the restaurant
You haven't fully experienced the Blowing Rock, NC region until you've dined at The Gamekeeper. It's a true gourmet restaurant with an engaging blend of upscale elegance and mountain charm.


Famous for an evolving menu that blends the traditional with the exotic, The Gamekeeper features a selection of perfectly prepared game plus a range of continental and American entrees.

Acclaimed chef and owner Ken Gordon brings tremendous warmth and skill to the table treating you more as friends than guests. You'll experience a meal to remember that includes fine wines, decadent desserts, and a generous serving of personal attention. You'll leave happy and impressed with a desire to return soon!

Banner Elk
About the restaurant
The best award-winning steakhouse in the area! Worth the drive from Banner Elk (13 miles), Beech Mountain, Sugar Mountain (30 minute drive) , Johnson City or wherever you are. Americano Steak House is a local, veteran-owned restaurant featuring hand-cut steaks, fresh seafood, amazing salads, 1/2 pound steak-burgers, decadent desserts and the only full liquor bar in the East Tennessee mountains will over 100 wines by the bottle and glass.

We kindly ask that you do not show up early for your reservation, but simply on time. We are a small, boutique steakhouse that focuses on exceptional food and incredible service in the mountains of East Tennessee and typically cannot seat guests earlier than their reserved time.

While we have always discouraged them, our policy towards no shows/same day cancelations MUST be firm. No shows and same day cancellations are the plague of the industry and we ask of you to uphold your end of this commitment as we are thrilled to provide on our end.

Americano is a gem in Roan Mountain. We much prefer to come from the tourist area of Avery county over to this quaint restaurant. I loved the calamari, and the size of the side salad with my steak was perfect. My filet was very good, and cooked as requested. We will be back!
