    We arrived for our reservation and were seated promptly. The waitress was able to explain the menu choices and drink selections. The food arrived quickly and was very good. Don't expect fancy, but expect quality.

    We had reservations for brunch and were set immediately. The problem is, we waited for our food for almost an hour after we ordered! Had the daily special eggs Benedict, pretty bland. Disappointed in the experience in that I spent almost $300.

    The food choices were great with really creative options for vegetarians like me. I had the mushroom risotto but was torn between the four amazing options. The cheese plate was huge. Also the mocktails menu is delicious. The Herbal Remedy is delicious My husband had the pork chop with a delicious savory bread pudding. Chef Michael Reppert and his team have done a wonderful job. Want plainer fare? Check out his NY style diner Zella’s in Swannanoa!

    Wonderful dinner with friends on a Wednesday night. Green tomato gazpacho soup was out of this world - just the right amount of heat. Pasta with shrimp/chicken/sausage and tomatoes/peas was so good. And the best coconut cream cake I’ve ever eaten.

    Absolutely delicious breakfast. The corned beef hash was phenomenal as well as the chicken biscuit and the Benedict. My kids loved the French toast. The spring sparrow cocktail was incredible. Our waiter was so attentive and had great recommendations. Such a great experience and highly recommend!
