    We had the shrimp and grits which are absolutely delightful. I never would have imagined including pimento cheese in shrimp and grits, but the combination made it exciting. Best shrimp and grits we've ever had.

    A quaint and cozy feeling, lovely views, good service, and delicious food. I recommend the shrimp and grits. They were having a computer problem that delayed our dinner a bit. We returned for brunch a couple of days later and the problem persisted, they should fix that ASAP.

    We had a fun time at the Lodge. Unfortunately, the only deck open to diners was the one right off the bar. The downstairs decks were closed because of the guest rooms down there. Our servers were great, and took very good care of us. The Linguine with Clams could have used more spice, but all the rest of the appetizers, meals, and desserts, were delicious! The ambiance, and decor, were perfect! It’s a great place to go to celebrate, or just have a special outing!

    We ate outside to enjoy the spectacular view. Our waitress was knowledgeable, friendly and never rushed us. The food was superb that night and never fails to impress us. The Appalachia Restaurant is indeed a welcome addition to Lake Lure.

    FABULOUS FARE Appalachia is a very comfortable fine dining experience with a chef who obviously enjoys sharing her love of food. The restaurant is open to the public as well as to guests at the Lodge on Lake Lure, so it's not a surprise that the locals flock in for a wonderful dinner or a Sunday brunch. The dining experience is well matched by the view - FABULOUS!!

    While the menu was somewhat limited the food was very well prepared and the service was top notch. I realize the restaurant has only been open a few weeks so a limited menu is understandable.

    My husband took me here for my birthday dinner and it was wonderful. The atmosphere, service, and food was impeccable. Jill, our server was an exceptional individual and went beyond to make our dinner very special. My husband had the bone in pork chop and I had the backyard chicken, both were absolutely delicious.We shared an appetizer of salt rising bread with dipping oil and it was fabulous! We met Megan Medina, the chef, as we were walking to the parking lot and what a wonderful person. I can't say enough good about this restaurant. You won't be disappointed.

    Food was outstanding, service was even more friendly and fantastic. The experience made us feel we were dining at a friends house. Views of course are breathtaking. Can’t say enough about the whole experience. Shout out to Chef Kevin and Megan and our server Jill.

    Superb food, but experience dampened by group of drunk women at another table that were not dining only drinking. They were loud and obnoxious and disturbing everyone else in the restaurant. Management should not allow anyone in the dining room unless they are ordering food.

    This place is absolutely beautiful! The food was outstanding and the service was top notch. I had their shrimp and grits along with a beet salad and the meal was so fresh. The staff was so attentive and kind, willing to work with my gluten free needs. I would definitely recommend and I will be back on our next visit to Lake Lure!

    This was our 2nd time at the Appalachia. We truly love the rustic setting, the views, the great service and the wine & food selections. Unfortunately, our 2nd visit was ruined by a large table of guests next to us. Several members of that party were very intoxicated and spent the entire time literally yelling at others at their large table. The noise level in this building is already challenging, and at our first visit was worth noting. We understand that this is no fault of the establishment, but perhaps there is a way to do some soundproofing? Sadly, our 2nd experience here left not wanting to return anytime soon.

    Stayed at the lodge and booked Appalachia for the convenience. Very glad we did- food was delicious, service was attentive and friendly and the lake view is lovely. We were there on a Wednesday night and it was quite busy, I recommend reservations.

    They recently opened up three weeks ago and restaurant still have some staffing issues that will certainly be resolved in the weeks to come. The food preparation was very good and their cocktails were excellent.

    I would like to see the food arranged on the plate more artistically. I personally like dinner plates not bowls.
