    The food is upscale and just the best quality at Appalachia - the views are awesome and they don't mind if you take your drink down to the lake after dining. Severs are awesome and it's one of the finer dining places in Lake Lure

    Our dining experience was very pleasant! The hostess was accommodating, our server was very friendly and attentive. The food was good, i had the trout as my main dish and shrimp appetizer. The shrimp was fresh and delicious! I was just a bit confused with the trout dish. It had beans, tomatoes and cabbage as a side and i thought made this dish a bit complicated. The trout was very good but maybe better with some simple sides. The trifle for dessert was excellent!

    Everything was wonderful! Our waitress was very knowledgeable of all of the offerings from the bar and what the Chef had to offer. We can’t wait to come back again. The weather wasn’t great so we weren’t able to enjoy a cocktail out on one of their many decks. What a wonderful view they have.

    We had the most wonderful meal last night at the Appalachia. We were staying at the Lodge, but it is open to the public. Every course was outstanding! Beet with Burrata and Wedge salads to start, appetizers of pork belly and chicken liver mousse, entrees included trout and pork chops. Our server/bartender Sydney was fantastic, and her course timing was perfection. I will certainly be dining here again on our next visit to the mountains.

    I made a reservation a month in advance for 4. When we arrived on time we were told we would have to sit in the bar area as they didn’t have any 4-tops in the main dining area. The whole point of making a reservation was to reserve a table with a view. Extremely disappointed as we had guests visiting from out of town. The hostess didn’t seem to care. That said, the food was excellent and our waiter (who was also the bartender and made excellent drinks) was wonderful.
    Appalachia at The LodgeResponded on April 3, 2024
    Thank you so much for joining us for dinner! I truly wish we would have known that you had a table preference at the time of your arrival! All tables in our main dining room were currently occupied by diners with an earlier reservation when this guest arrived. Any guest that arrives and asks us for a different table than the one given, we will do whatever we can to make guests happy! Just simply ask us! I will point out that we have many guests request the bar area so we do not see that room as a less desired space. I do hope you are able to visit us again in the near future!
