Our soup was cold, we had to send it back to be reheated. Our sandwiches were
greasy, I literally had grease running down my arm! The music was good, while very very loud. We found ourselves shouting to hear one another-then the music would stop, and there we were still shouting!

My husband and I stopped in on Saturday for his birthday after hitting the Mayberry Distillery around the corner. Old North State is a quiet little restaurant and winery tucked away in downtown Mt Airy with quaint charm and warm ambience. Our server, Savannah, was on point and a wonderful addition to our night. If you like a deep red wine I recommend the Old Gentleman Merlot, my husband loved it, or for a lighter blend, go with the Soul, which was my favorite. We both had the Ribeye which was cooked to perfection! The potatoes on my husbands plate were tucked away under his steak and "to die for", he said, while I had the bacon cooked brussel sprouts, yum! We will definitely be back for the wine tour and chefs table soon!

My wife and I ate at oldNorth State for her birthday. We were greeted very graciously and seated promptly. Our waitperson came to our table and waited on us with outstanding care. The food was fantastic and as well as our plates were decorated extremely well by the chefs. Noise level was a little on the noisy side. Everything else outweigh the noise. plan to return.

A bit noisy and busy (Valentine’s Day dinner), but service was friendly and efficient and food was well prepared and tasty. They have some very acceptable house wines (from which you may request a taste if unfamiliar), as well as a very reasonably priced and varied wine menu beyond the Old North State wines. Price is quite reasonable for the quality. Definitely worth return visit(s) when in the area.

Their chef created dishes are so delicious, and the plate presentations are beautiful. The ambiance is perfect for a romantic dinner, and the service is impeccable!

Very good food, Chef Chris has turned this restaurant into a 'go to' place. Portions are a bit big for me but that is not a complaint - it meets the customers' needs in this area. People are most friendly and accommodating.

Our waiter was fantastic. We’ve had him during a previous visit. He allowed friends to test wines, which they loved, before ordering. They all loved the Wild Sea Bass. The only complaint had to do with the fries/chips’ temperature. Cold. They didn’t want to cause a disturbance. Other than this, excellent!

Our first time dining here, seated promptly, great service. Nice variety of items on the menu, everything was very good. The shrimp/veggie egg rolls were delicious. I had a salad and tacos that were great. My husband had a pasta dish. Nice selection of wine and adult beverages. We would definitely return if in the area again.

Just passing through town and saw this on Open Table. The food and service were both excellent. We each had a glass of the wine of the day, the Fish Hippie Soul and it was good. My friend had the salmon salad and raved about it. I had a hamburger and fries and it was good.

This is my third visit to ONS over the last 6 months. What a treat! There is a fear (at least with me) that there will be a disappointment going back to the same restaurant when the previous experience was good. Sorry it's just my nature with restaurants. We waited at the bar for our friends to arrive. The bar experience was excellent. We got a little history of the building. I lived in Mt. Airy from 1974 until 1990. I don't remember much about the businesses then. Nevertheless, I love the beautiful job you folks have done. We had a mixed drink and sweet tea (the driver has to abstain). Excellent tea.
I judge restaurants by how good the crab cakes are. I had another # 1 place until I tasted yours. The best. No fillers that I could see or taste. My friends had the crab cakes as well. My wife had the scallops. I never order scallops but did enjoy one of hers. The bread and olive oil was a nice touch.
Can you tell we liked it. No dessert. Professional waitress. We'll be back with more friends. No disappointments.

Haven’t been here since it operated as a deli. My wife and I had salad, entrées, dessert and a bottle of wine with tip for $85. We’ve lived in Washington DC the past two years and can’t remember a meal we enjoyed better then at OSW. They can still improve on the ambience as it’s too open an area. The wood floors and open ceiling make it a bit noisy. Didn’t expect paper table clothes and napkins either. However,they are are going for the winery feel and they’re getter there. We will be back!!

The only steak on the menu is a low quality cut. Avoid.
Waitress came to our table 5 times in a matter of minutes when we said we needed a few to decide. Told her it was our first time and our Anniversary. SIGH! Felt like we were putting HER out.

My wife and I were on a short vacation going through North Carolina and Virginia and luckily dined at the Old North State Winery - it was great! The food was delicious, we enjoined the ambience of the restaurant and the server (young lady) could not have been nicer. The dinner was one of our best experiences in our travels.

Food and atmosphere were excellent. However, no one ever came to refill or ask if we even needed refills on any of our beverages. We had to actually at the end of our meal ask someone ourself for a refill on our beverage after waiting our entire meal without anyone checking. The restaurant was not even busy, there was probably only three other tables occupied at the time.

We attended the First Sunday Brunch and the food was good but nothing was labeled. With a few things we did not know what we were eating. Service was not very good even for a buffet. I was served heavy cream instead of half / half with my coffee. We called to make a reservation and who ever answered did not know how to take a reservation and I never got a call back. Between the experience and just ok food it was not worth the price.
