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.

First visit and it was great. Our group had the salmon and sirloin entrees, and one had the chicken quesadilla. All were very good especially the salmon. There are more wines served than what was listed so be sure to ask. Didn’t have desserts as the servings were large. Will definitely return.

The perfect place for an amazing dinner in Mayberry. The Old North State Winery had great tastings wines and the list was interesting and well done. Our server was well informed, and explained the menu thoroughly...she also was friendly and not in any rush. It was a great evening...with music to follow.

Pros and cons here. Service was slow. The manager seemed more concerned with tasting his patrons’ wine offering and chatting the regulars up than helping anyone else. The server couldn’t keep our wine order right. The local wines were only adequate. There was a soft-shell crab special in the menu that was really good, but the fried green tomatoes were underripe, even for green tomatoes, and blandly seasoned. The fried oyster salad was mostly bacon! Weird. Nice relaxed ambience and a live singer. Overlit.

Reserved a table and we arrived early and got seated right away. Server friendly and got us drinks. We decided to share a salad and entree. Wedge salad huge, enough for four and they split it in the kitchen which was nice. Nicely presented and was good. They served the entree at the same time as the salad which we thought was strange. We asked them to hold it till we finished our salad. The entree was plated nice on individual plates in the kitchen,but the steak was tough and even hard to cut with a serrated steak knife. The roasted vegetables, especially the carrots were mostly raw. I like my veggies somewhat crisp but these were hard to cut. Au gratin potatoes were ok. Server seemed to disappear and we waited awhile for the check

We have eaten at Old North State Winery before, but they outdid themselves this Valentine's Day. My partner and I spent 2 nights at a local AirBnB and Valentine's night was so special! The four course meal was spectacular, each dish a work of art. The level of creativity was both visual and scrumptious tasting. Old North State has our vote!

Our night started with a fifteen minute wait for someone to come to our table to acknowledge we were there but it got really good from there. Once the waiter realized that we were there his service was excellent. The food was outstanding. We drive from Charlotte to spend an evening in mount Airy and the following day and we would drive back up just to eat dinner there
