The Restaurant at Gideon Ridge
Fantastic food, good ambiance, top shelf liquours, good service. A great place for a special occasion dinner.
Simply a wonderful meal for four longtime friends who have eaten at many restaurants together around the world. It will be one of our best memories
The absolute best restaurant in Blowing Rock! Plan ahead, reservations are hard to get!
What a delightful evening! The service Sarah provided was professional and very comfortable. The food was absolutely delicious. We sat next to a cozy fire and enjoyed every minute of our evening. I can’t really say enough about how lively this restaurant is.
The tuna and trout appetizer was fresh and tasty. The lamb sirloin was wonderful, cooked properly and we'll presented
Liked the cozy ambiance and especially liked sitting in front of the fireplace. The service was very good. We thought the food was good, but not quite the wow we expected. We would definitely try it again.
Everything was top notch. Duck is amazing!
Excellent food and service!
If I could give this place 10 stars I would! I love this place. Every time we visit NC we HAVE to eat here. We call this place our special hideaway. The food is beyond amazing and the views of the sunset over the mountains is like no other. This place is very special. We always have the best time here and the service is excellent. It is a hidden gem in the mountains of North Carolina. Best food, best wine and best views. You feel special when you eat here because of their limited seating and exquisite food options. Fine dining at it's best! 10 stars all around.
What a fantastic experience!! Everything was perfect! We arrived a little early for our reservation, so we had drinks in the library while waiting for our table. The food was phenomenal. My husbands lamb was a little undercooked for his preference, but it tasted great nonetheless. My duck entree was one of the best meals that I have ever eaten. Overall great experience!
Quiet, relaxed atmosphere with superb food and an attentive chef
Excellent meal and service. Definitely the best restaurant in Blowing Rock.
We had an excellent dinner. The food was creative and beautifully presented. The service was excellent with very good timing between courses. The cocktails were delicious too.
Nasty weather night... ended up being a truly quiet, romantic, dinner. Wait staff was very attentive and food was exquisite. The restaurant is tied to the Inn. It's at the top of the mountain next to "the Blowing Rock"
We have been repeat customers over the years. Never fails to meet our greatest expectations.
Excellent dining experience. The food was outstanding and the service was the absolute best!
Food presentation and taste is some of the best we’ve ever had! Service was great as well!
Will definitely be going back!
This was our 5th visit over the past 5-6 years when we visit Blowing Rock and they haven't missed a beat. Nothing better than watching the sun set over Grandfather Mountain while having a cocktail on the patio. The food and drinks are outstanding as well making this restaurant a must see when in the area.
Wonderful time with interesting wait staff honoring pleasant presentation of food including well prepared Octopus salad and an excellent Mushroom fondue as appetizers followed by an exceptional brussel sprout salad with an entree of a great pork chop.
This was our 1st time at the restaurant and the ratings that we read about it were on target. The food was outstanding. One reviewer said it was as good as the Artisinal, which is our favorite restaurant, so we had to go here. It is as good as the Artisinal. The staff is very knowledgeable and friendly. We will be back.
We were not expecting to be so blown away by the food here! Made a last-minute overnight stop at Gideon Ridge, and managed to get a reservation for dinner. The food was absolutely outstanding, and Corey was such a friendly and knowledgeable server. Even if you are not staying there, I highly recommend eating there if possible! One of the very best restaurants in Blowing Rock.
Several people told us this was the primo restaurant in the Blowing Rock area. They were absolutely right.
One of our best meals ever, anywhere. Healthy light and exceptionally flavorful. Can’t wait to drive the 6 hours to go back for a meal
Our second time. My husband loved his Tempe. My beef dish was superb first time. Not so much this time.
Wonderful meal/ Great service at best setting in Blowing Rock/ staff are attentive and knowledgeable/ chef is superb.
Hunter ALWAYS comes through !! It was as Delicious as my last visit. Hunter is one of the BEST Chef’s in Western NC!
Best dining experience in Blowing Rock, bar none. I’ve eaten here many times over the last 7-8 years and have never had anything but exceptional food and service.
Wonderful from start to finish to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary. Arranged beforehand to have a gift at our table and it was ready upon our arrival.
Scenic location and intimate, quiet dining room. Handcrafted cocktails and a 100% local farm to table menu. Our server Corey was fantastic, her descriptions and recommendations were spot on. Textures, temperatures, acidity...we are fairly accomplished home cooks and we were impressed by every dish.
Well worth a trip to Blowing Rock. One of our most memorable meals.
Amazing all around
Food was absolutely delicious! The escargot and locally sourced mushroom appetizers were divine.
Our server was wonderful, romantic ambiance on a foggy night on the terrace. Try the scallops for your entree, you won’t be disappointed.
Great food, great ambiance, fantastic service. Our group loved it
First time dining at Gideon Ridge with another couple. We were seated outside to take in the scenic view and enjoy the wonderful mountain air. Food was delicious. Presentation was very appealing. Service was friendly and knowledgeable. We couldn’t have enjoyed our dinner more. The chicken liver pate was delicious (and I’m not usually a pate fan). Local fresh ingredients featured.
Wonderful meal by excellent chef. The whole evening was special.
Outside dining on the patio was our choice upon arrival, and the mountain view at sunset was incredible—an added bonus with no price!
hard to get in as it is a small venue, but worth the wait. We'll definitely go ahead. The lamb was super!!
Top Drawer in every respect. The food was creatively prepared and exceptionally tasty. The ambiance was very nice, and the service good. We will return.
Great dining experience, with fabulous view and food and service!
Excellent dining experience, however the parking is sparse and difficult.
Gorgeous setting wit mountaintop views.
Service exemplary, and the food truly
5 star. Experienced one of the great dining
nights in recent years.
Outstanding dining experience. We had a later reservation on a week night so it wasn’t particularly crowded. It is heavily booked so consider reservations a month in advance. Prices are high but food very creative. Some of the portions a tad “precious” For us probably the best restaurant in the High Country. We will return.
