Such a nice variety of selections for lunch, service was great. We would visit again while in the area and recommend the restaurant to others while leaving.

This is our fourth or fifth meal over the last few years. The experience and the food have remained well above average . The prices are well below what you would expect for the quality of the food and the thoughtfulness of the servers. The distance between tables is ample. You don’t feel crowded. The menu seems to change frequently to interesting dishes you wouldn’t expect . I had a shrimp stir fry with an observation that the rice would have tasted better to me if the rice had actually been fried. It was more like boiled or steamed rice. Overall The dish needed a little more flavor for my palate. My wife had the beef version of the stir fry. It had a very good flavor although the bite I had the beef was tough. My wife enjoyed hers. The other folks at the table enjoyed their dishes with one saying the fried oysters were the best she had eaten., The burger looked great. We did not have desert but a piece of coconut cake looked delicious on the way to a table.
Mt Airy is fortunate to have such a quality restaurant. The history of the building brings back good memories because my mother dragged me to Belks as a kid. I’m very happy the building has been preserved.

We have really loved going to Old North in the past, but feel the past few trips the flavor was not there. For the price, we feel like it should be kicked up a notch.

Nice restaurant. Nice you can make a reservation being Mt Airy can get crowded. Little expensive. Lunch menu was just ok. Would have liked more selection. I just really enjoyed it years ago when you could order at the counter and you had things on display, especially when you had small pies (key lime) and such for sale.

My husband and I both had the cheeseburgers with bacon, French fries and a delicious macaroni and cheese. The meal was served quickly and cooked to perfection. I had the autumn leaf wine which was just right— not too sweet or too dry.
Terrific atmosphere and good food!

Enjoyed the meal and the service. On our next visit, we were thinking of doing the
Chef's Table where the meal is a 7-course meal with wine pairings for the different courses.

Service and ambiance was great, we tried several
Glasses of the house Riesling and it was delicious. The food was above average, but not an outstanding value for the pricing. Was happy to support a local business, but most likely wouldn’t dine again with this same menu. Will buy wine by the bottle though!

Outstanding experience this past weekend at Old North State winery. Excellent atmosphere and ambiance. Friendly and accommodating staff. Delicious food, our waitress made some great recommendations. Good wine prices, huge menu of craft cocktails and beers. Great attention to detail. For example, my husband and I split a wedge salad before our meal. They thought to separate it into 2 plates without me having to ask. Those small details make a difference! We will be back!

OLd North State winery is our go-to restaurant and winery when we are near Mt. Airy. We have never been disappointed with the wine or menu offerings. We do enjoy the crab cakes and spring roll choices! The staff is always very attentive and knowledgeable. We will continue to dine the ONSW at every opportunity.

It was so great to visit this restaurant again. It was my first restaurant outing in over a year and I felt very safe. The Seared Scallops accompanied by mushroom ravioli and roasted Brussels sprouts was incredible. And the chocolate ganache was a perfect ending. ❤️

My wife asked me to fill out this survey because I was very disappointed with our dining experience. The quality of the food was good but the quantity of food was very lacking. When you spend $140 for a meal and have to stop at a fast food restaurant when you leave because you are still hungry is not acceptable! I will not ever return to this establishment nor will I recommend it to anyone!
Sincerely,
Thomas Byrd

Our party of four thoroughly enjoyed our lunch experience on Friday, February 12, 2021. ! The food was excellent and reasonably priced. Korey provided great service—attentive and yet didn’t hover over/interrupt us excessively. (That is something that bugs me). We will be back!

They have the best fried green tomatoes I've ever eaten (and I've eaten alot). They are sandwiched between homemade pimento cheese with a side of pickles. What's not to love.

Everything else was great as well.
