One of the best dining experiences of my life. Everything and everyone was perfect.
The best experience ever!! Everything was just perfect! Thank you we will be back!
I have been lucky to travel extensively and I have sampled restaurants far and wee, but Newman’s is always a delight for my palate. The ambiance is terrific and the staff friendly and welcoming. The expanded terrace seating is lovely and warm and the perfect addition during the pandemic. Special occasions are always more special at Newman’s.
Awesome food! Def be back!
First experience for husband & I
Actually celebrating 68 B-Day.
Seldom do we go out to eat due to pandemic. You addressed all concerns and made going out a
beautiful experience. One humble
suggestion needs to be made...
Do all possible to hold onto the Chef
Amazing! Feel fortunate to have fine dining available in our hometown Saluda 💜 thank you
Birthday dinner. Excellent service, food, noise level and ambience.
Newman’s new outdoor seating area is absolutely lovely for a Covid safe dining experience. Outside temperatures were in the high 20’s, but with the overhead heaters, we were comfortable. The food and service were impeccable as always. It’s a treat for these difficult times.
We loved spending Christmas Eve here fir a very special meal and experience. The food was magnificent and everyone made us feel very cared for and comfortable. Highly recommend this wonderful place!
We always have a wonderful meal and evening at the Orchard Inn.
But Christmas is very special there..wonderful decorations, the
readings from Dickens, and of course the menu.
We had a terrific brunch there Thanksgiving weekend. Great fixed price menu with something for every taste. The entrees were all so inviting that we had trouble deciding on just one. Ended up with the Pork rib eye steak, the Salmon and the pasta Bolognese. All were perfectly prepared and beautifully served, just what one would expect from a Chaine des Rotisseurs restaurant. The wine list was also first class and we selected a Oudinot brut rose Champagne from Epernay. The brunch was served in their brand-new outdoor pavilion which was perfect on even a cool morning. This restaurant is a must visit when in the Saluda area!
A stellar experience throughout. Due to the pandemic, we’re laying low and very rarely eating out. The COVID protocols were excellent and we felt very confident and SAFE throughout the experience. Exquisite food, cordial and efficient service, and a charming ambience are all on the menu at Newman’s restaurant at The Orchard Inn. Give it a try, you won’t be disappointed!
Nice, intimate dinner. Perfect place to spend a night out with your spouse.
Fine dining level food, everything was fresh, entrees were all unique and delicious. It’s not often I don’t have any complaints, but Newman’s took care of us good. About 20-30 min from Hendersonville
what a great bday evening!! Service and food was wonderful. Staff was exceptional.
Ready to come back for brunch and the view!! )Missed the view coming in the evening).
Great food, service and atmosphere located in Saluda, NC. Highly recommend.
My husband and I had a very pleasant brunch a couple of weeks ago at Newman's. We took a long weekend trip to Saluda for a late anniversary getaway, and due to the timing of our trip, brunch was our only option for a meal.
Due to COVID, we decided to stay at an AirBnB property, but we wanted to also visit the Orchard Inn. We've stayed several times over the years, but never during the current owners' proprietorship. The Inn was much like we remembered it (it's been over 10 years since our last visit), but there have been many improvements. It was great to see the Inn doing well and brunch was quite busy.
We mentioned our anniversary in our reservation information and they had a small balloon at our table to mark the occasion. We were seated just inside the door to the dining porch at a very private table, but we were still able to look out over the valley. Brunch is a three course prix fixe meal with four choices for a starter and dessert and six courses for the entree. Hubby and I got completely different dishes and they were all delicious.
We started with drinks and a fabulous jalapeno biscuit with onion jam for the amuse-bouche. Our server was very familiar with the menu and was able to help with all of our questions. Hubby had Caprese Salad, Crab Cake for an entree and Apple Butter Ice Cream with shortbread for dessert. I had Roasted Butternut Squash Soup, Duck Confit for my main and Espresso Creme Brulee with biscotti for dessert. All around a wonderful meal with excellent food and service.
Once things slowed down with the brunch crowd, we were able to have a nice conversation with the owners. They both have extensive hospitality backgrounds and they have done a wonderful job of maintaining and improving the Inn. If you are ever in the area, you can't go wrong with choosing the Orchard Inn for your lodging or Newman's (named for one of their cats) for a special meal!!!
Great food, beautiful views! Outstanding service. I highly recommend it!!
Thank you for taking the time to review. We are looking forward to welcoming you again.
It was our anniversary. We enjoyed an awesome romantic brunch. It couldn't have been better. The staff had gone out of their way with anniversary wishes and service. Thank you! Can't wait to come back. Compliments to the chef!
It is always a warm and rewarding experience at Newmans. The secluded Orchard Inn takes you back in time and allows you to slow down and enjoy the ambiance
Excellent ambiance food and service outstanding and the views beautiful
Outstanding service, creative food and beautiful presentation. Lovely setting as well.
Excellent food and service in an awesome atmosphere!
If you are near, or planning to visit Saluda, NC, you MUST dine at Newman’s! We drive an hour from Greenville, SC 2-3 times a year for this special treat of culinary delights, elegant but warm and friendly service, and beautiful ambience. Marc, Marianne, and all the family and friends who give their time and love to the Orchard Inn make every visit a joy.
We sat on the back patio; great news. Also great brunch. Have been there several times and would definitely recommend...
The food and atmosphere were spectacular. Wonderful wine selection. All 4 courses were very well prepared and presented. A first class experience. We will dine there again.
Wonderful dinner in a romantic country inn. All due diligence performed because of COVID. Varied 4-course menu to suit all tastes. Nice wine list. Attentive service without hovering. Tucked away in Saluda, NC, and a great find!
This place is perfect! Beautiful views, incredibly yummy food, fantastic presentation of food, super friendly and attentive staff, and a great selection of wines. It’s a family-run place and the owners are very friendly, professional, caring, and experienced - and love cats and dogs, which was a huge bonus! It is very upmarket and cozy, and we celebrated my dad’s birthday there. They made the evening very special for him and we had a great time. The food was outstanding (and we’ve been to quite a few Michelin star restaurants so know our way around food!). Thank you so much for a wonderful evening!
This restaurant is really good but I don’t want too many people to find out about it. The owners run an excellent dining experience that is reminiscent of memories from my European travel. No detail is spared.
I took my sister in while visiting from Atlanta and she loved it as well. A new find for me but I love it!
Friendly owners and staff.
Great place, food, service, and ambiance. Always consistent and been there many times over the years . My favorite place of anywhere I have ever been !!!
Great food and wine, fantastic service, and spectacular view! We will be back with friends and family.
The tables were set up beautifully. The view out of the floor to ceiling windows was as pretty as a picture with the mountains & flowers. The meal was divided into four courses. Each course had five choices to choose from. And I can speak for my husband & myself that the food was wonderfully good. It is a restaurant to go to for a special occasion...a celebration of some sort. It was a dinner to savor & remember for my birthday.
Loved the view, the setting and an amazing service. Our watermelon salad was fresh and delicious - we had the risotto and the lobster, which were both great. And the desserts were the perfect ending.
As always, the food, service and ambiance were perfect. We go there once or twice a year and are never disappointed with the quality of the experience. My only wish is that they put a little more food on the plates. I always leave wanting more....
The setting on the back deck is breathtaking. The food rivals any I have had. Service is 5 star.
Awesome food. Great dining experience. Service was excellent. Very nice Inn with view of the mountains.
Newman's is a place for a slow leisurely dinner with an ambiance conducive to conversation. The tables were spaced apart to comply with the Covid-19 safety standards and all the staff was wearing safety equipment. There is an extensive wine list but unfortunately, they do not have cocktails. However, this did not detract from the quality of the restaurant. The menu is creative and with plenty of choices for all. This is not a child friendly establishment. The restaurant is located inside The Orchard Inn and there are antiques and beautiful objects throughout that sets the mood for quiet reflection and nostalgia.
The excellent food and ambiance make for a memorable experience.
The food is fantastic, the service is perfect, and the setting is beautiful. Newman’s is one of our favorite places for an elegant dinner. We highly recommend it!
special place for a special event expensive so best for someone who appreciates different and specially prepared food
Delicious food, beautiful presentation, nicely timed.
Music was too loud and music kept turning on & off.....very aggravating. Otherwise, quite a nice experience. Food was very good.
