    We took our son and his two boys to Sunday brunch. I was hoping for eggs benedict, the boys were hoping for chocolate chip pancakes and we all got what we wanted. The Springdale Benedict came with a wonderful hollandaise sauce that was obviously made from scratch. I had a lovely fruit salad as a side, but would have loved it if there were a veggie offering that would complement that hollandaise sauce (i.e. broccoli, asparagus or potatoes). We asked for a side of fries, and even though it wasn't part of the brunch menu, the chef made it for us. The French fries were awesome! No old fry oil here, they were delightfully fresh and wonderfully seasoned. we'll be back for dinner just so we can have another batch! This is such a classy restaurant - beautifully designed with vaulted ceilings and gorgeous views. It would be a gem in any setting, but for Cruso, it's an amazing venue! I hope they stay open year round (not just golf season). We would definitely recommend Rocky Face Tavern to friends and anyone looking for a classy restaurant off the beaten path.

    Very friendly staff & beautiful place. The food & drinks were delicious. We later saw there was a special advertised online but we were never told about it. Waitress was new but very efficient. Said "heck ya" too often, but just a habit I think. We will definitely be back and refer others. Well worth the drive.

    We booked a table for 12:30 and our table was ready upon arrival. We were actually given a choice to upgrade to the outdoor veranda which was excellent. We were greeted promptly. We got drinks promptly. The food was outstanding and the price was reasonable especially considering we were at a remote country club. The views were great. The venue is new and absolutely beautiful. All the employees were excellent.

    Creative menu. Potato skins were great. Pork scallopini and trout were good. Not impressed with cheese sauce from a jar on nachos, and food was served lukewarm. Great service. Would try again to give food a 2nd chance, but won't rush back.

    Rocky Face Tavern - Springdale ResortResponded on October 24, 2022Good morning! Thank you so much for coming to see us at the Tavern.

    Four of us had drinks and dinner here on a Friday night. Although Springdale Country Club/Resort is a bit off the beaten path, the relatively new owners reportedly have ambitious plans for the golf course, facilities and lodging. A good deal of money has been invested in the facility over the past couple of years, and the restaurant/bar, called Rocky Face Tavern, is attractive with beautiful stone work. We arrived early and had a couple of drinks at the bar before dinner. Call brand drinks are moderately priced (around $10) but aren't very generous pours. You'd be better off going with the well liquors -- a vodka martini from the well was only around $6! The four of us in the party all ordered from the Friday night specials menu. A couple of us had the house burger (around $16 plus an extra few bucks for fries) and two of us had the fish and chips ($23.50). We all enjoyed the food. In fact, I thought my fish and chips -- a large portion of lightly breaded Atlantic cod plus steak fries -- was probably the best I've had in the Asheville area. Service was pretty good, although the restaurant seems to suffer, like many others these days, from occasional staffing issues. Guests seem to be a mix of locals from the Cruso/Canton area and visitors staying at the property to play golf. The restaurant has two nice fireplaces, one inside and one outside. However, the staff did not start fires in either one, even though a fire would have felt good (even inside) on the cook autumn evening. Again, maybe that's a staffing issue.

    When we booked the Springdale Golf Course's Rocky Face tavern -- we knew that the view of the mountains and the course would be "spectacular" and it was !! We had a table outside on the covered balcony with a view which overlooked the golf course and the Mountains --- and it was BEAUTIFUL -- perhaps second to none (in considering all of the other 'public' restaurant venues.) And to top it off -- most everyone in our party (8 people) said their meal was 'excellent'. I would "Highly Recommend" Rocky Face Tavern.

    This was our second visit at the Rocky Face Tavern, the first being a wedding reception in late August. That night made us want to come back on our own to enjoy the beautiful scenery and delicious food. I think Springdale's fabulous renovations on the property are so inviting but seems it is one of the best=kept secrets, unfortunately, in Haywood County. Wish them the best in having more people discover them!!
