This was one of the best restaurant experiences I have had in a long time. A group of friends and I traveled to the Asheville area for the weekend, and Saturday night was our "splurge" night. The restaurant space was beautiful, the food delicious, and the service friendly and attentive without being overbearing. Kimberly did an amazing job! As for the food, everything was delicious, but the short ribs and the lobster pot pie were the runaway winners of the evening, and the dessert martinis were a sweet-but-not-heavy way to end a perfect evening.

whatever you do, don't let the fact that this gem is in a Holiday Inn scare you. The special was a bison bone in ribeye, and it was amazing. The other main courses at our table were excellent as well. Because it is small service was great. I suspect a lot of folks shy away from the Holiday Inn part, and it is a big mistake if you are looking for a memorable meal More

My boyfriend and I can for his birthday. Our server, Marjory, was super attentive and extremely kind. It was so good to meet the manager, Scott. He came to check on us several times during dinner. The best part of the evening was the birthday dessert and the entire patio singing Happy Birthday! I hope to visit this restaurant again soon and see both Scott and Marjory. They made our first visit very memorable. The food was very good - we had blackened catfish and the fried chicken. Eating here is a MUST when you’re in Asheville! More
