Truly, a fine dining experience, unequaled ANYWHERE in the southeast. Pricey, but worth it!.

I had the sea bass and the kale salad and loved them. My husband was well pleased with his steak. The bread and amuse bouche were great. Our friends both ordered the meatball and found it too heavy, spicy...but they loved the truffled polenta served with it. The service was excellent and they gave us a seat by the fireplace which was perfect for a cold and blustery evening.

My husband and I dined recently at Rowland's to celebrate our anniversary. When we arrived, our table was sprinkled with red rose petals and had a card from the restaurant thanking us for choosing Rowland's for our special occasion. The food was creative as well as delicious. The service could not have been more welcoming. The restaurant and inn are located in the 100-year old mansion of North Carolina artist Elliott Daingerfield, and the view is amazing. Roland's is adjoined by the Westglow Spa, named #1 destination spa for 2017 by Travel & Leisure. All in all, this is a very special place.

As always, wonderful experience from the cocktails to the meal and especially the chocolate finale. Thanks for making my Mother’s 75th Birthday so special.

We dined at Rowland's based on a recommendation from a friend. We were not disappointed. The staff, ambiance, menu, drinks and our food was all excellent. By far the bast dinner during our stay in Blowing Rock. I would highly recommend Rowland's to anyone who enjoys fine food.

Have been here several times before and service was always great. This time not so great, not sure if she was new, but she was very inattentive. Food and ambience was great as always.

Everything was outstanding from the valet parking through the dessert! Our waiter, Austin was attentive, answered our questions and made some outstanding recommendations. Make sure you save room for dessert--apple crisp and the chocolate cookie were our choices! The restaurant itself is beautiful!!

Magnificent setting, elegant ambiance, impeccable service.

I am a world traveler (and old so I have been everywhere). I must say that starting with a glass of fine champagne on the classic veranda with open Blue Ridge views before you ranks among my Top 10 settings.

Yummy food - cooked perfectly with delicate yet proper seasonings, and presented with artistic flair. Creative appetizers, with our choices outstanding (tomatoes, pork belly). Entrées were more conventional - certainly gourmet yet just short of exciting a foodie. Because of that, I rated food 4 stars given "4 1/2" was not available. Maybe I was spoiled by everything else being perfect.

Can not summarize it better than "we will return."

I really wanted to love this place. The location and restaurant both are just a tad off from’s this little things... attention to detail, knowledgeable wait staff, that cause this place to miss its mark!
