Had been anticipating a meal at the GateKeeper for several years and somehow hadn't managed it. It was even better than expected. The preparations were outstanding
We had an exceptionally good experience. Originally it was a table for 2 but we had to change it to 6 at the last minute. We were accommodated with no issues. As always the staff was amazing and the service was impeccable. We have recommended the Gamekeeper to several of our friends whom have also visited and came back thanking us Tremendously. This is a must stop place anytime we are in the area. Thank you for a memorable experience.
Returned for our second visit, and appreciated the changing menu, seasonal options, knowledgeable staff and altogether culinary adventure. If you are visiting the Boone/Blowing Rock area, treat yourself to a food journey at the Gamekeeper.
The food at the Gamekeeper is always great. Lots of dishes you won't see anywhere else. The atmosphere is laid back and our server was friendly, attentive, and knowledgeable. You won't want to miss this local gem.
Only my second time here but is always great on service and best of all the food is fantastic.
Our server was very knowledgeable and helpful with suggestions from the menu. A very unique menu. The food was amazing. We will definitely be going back again. Our server gave us what felt like one on one service.
What a cozy place to dine on a cold snowy night. My trout was excellent!
On this particular New Years Eve night, the dinner was pre selected for us and was an 8 course meal starting at 8:30. Presentation was lovely and foods paced so that all was complete by around 11:00. Food was truly fine dining, with caviar, emu, elk steak, duck, lobster bisque, baked Alaska. Chose this restaurant partly because live music was scheduled for NYE festivities. There was no music as we were told the band “ was a no show” due to a recent snow fall. Very disappointing. Parking is scarce and on a steep incline. I felt the house turned restaurant was quite cramped. Travel to coat rack, and bathroom shared same pathway with kitchen staff, and waitstaff, so very congested. $$
Great food. Server was wonderful. Romantic. Unusual choices like Emu, Elk, Bison, Oysters & Flounder. Only one choice for vegetarian.
We had a great meal at The Gamekeeper.....we had been waiting to snag a reservation and we're glad it worked out. Service could have been a tad quicker at times, but the restaurant was very busy and our waitress seemed to have tables in another room, as well.....not a big deal.
