    The Inn at Nicewonder Farms has thought of everything to make your stay relaxing and easy. Hickory offers a edge on local cuisine and the result is delicious and new. The wine produced from the vineyard is very nice. We had a great stay and truly enjoyed every aspect they had to offer. Staff is super friendly and well trained.

    This restaurant continues to be outstanding. The portions on both the "small" and "large" plates are probably less than you would ordinarily expect, HOWEVER, the amazing combination of flavors more than compensate for what might be lacking in quantity. If you're still hungry, a solution is right at hand - order MORE!! I look forward to returning at the next available opportunity.

    One of the best meals we've had in our 16 years living in this area. The grounds and main building are magnificent- it could be situated right in the vineyards of Napa/Sonoma or SoCal. Gorgeous at night. The wait staff are so wonderful, and they love their jobs and engage the guests. Truly a great experience. It is pricey but for a special occassion, so worth it.

    Our overall experience was very nice. Our server was attentive and did a good job. Realizing she does not control the efficiency of the bar staff or the kitchen staff. The quality of the food was excellent overall. The fried chicken could have been more juicy. It wasn't dry, but it wasn't juicy either. The Chow Chow Pancake was delicious! The sauce took it over the top! Awesome!!! The two desserts were outstanding!

    I wish I could give it six stars! A fantastic dining experience with first class farm to table dining immersed in Appalachian heritage. The level of service from the time you park your car until you leave was also as good as any five star resort I’ve encountered. A must try!

    Chef Travis Milton once again astounded me with his amazing creations. This time it was the chow chow pancake, sprouting cauliflower in curry sauce, and bbq pork ribs with a blackberry bbq sauce. For dessert it was a deconstructed banana cream pie. Quite simply, every new meal has outdone each previous experience that I thought was the best ever. After many meals at Taste, this was our first at Hickory and the elevated dining experience is a great vessel for displaying Chef Travis' unique talents. This is world-class food in a welcoming environment.

    I misread the magazine article that introduced me to your place, I think Taste would have been more my style as far as menu and ambiance. I had the Quail at Hickory and it was Very Good, but the sides were disappointing.

    I read articles about the chef’s spin on Appalachian food and ended up spending a weekend at the winery where this restaurant is located. I was not disappointed. Most (if not all) the ingredients are locally sourced, grown on property or foraged and everything I had was amazing —Shrimp tacos, gnocchi with morel mushrooms, salad, broccoli, carrots and Spam spread —yes, that Spam and it was surprisingly delicious. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Travis, the chef, told me they were planning some cooking experiences with the guests using ingredients from things they forage around the property sometime in the fall and I am looking forward to returning.

    This restaurant is beautiful. The outdoor patio has fire pits. Chef Travis Milton is creative and brings Appalachian-style food to the Nicewonder Inn and Vineyards. It has an upscale feel, but it's truly a laid-back and spacious environment. The staff is warm, knowledgeable, and friendly. From appetizers to dessert, I am simply in awe of the flavors and the presentation of the food. It's worth every penny.
