First-class Inn and Restaurant! Dinner on the terrace at sunset with magnificent mountaintop views was stunning. Most of the menu is locally sourced, so varies with the season. We started with enhanced Fried Green Tomatoes, then Roasted Red Pepper bisque and finished with Duck Breast, which was the best I've ever had. Excellent Wine list and an incredible and most friendly staff topped off this wonderful experience. More

We have dined there before, so we had had the elk and bison and emu, which are all incredible. This time I had the pasta dish (with duck confit) and it may have been the best thing I have ever eaten. Maybe it was the ambiance and 5 star service, but it was really good. If you have not been.... go. More

Discover Asheville

Some of the area chefs in Asheville have nicknamed their town "Foodtopia" because of the area's well-known creative passion for great cuisine. Culinary experts throughout the entire western portion of North Carolina appear to have adopted this sentiment. Elegant fine dining establishments can be found alongside mid-priced luncheonettes. You can find a creative local deli for sandwiches, soups, and salads. Your hotel's dining area may turn out to be a five-star restaurant. Whether you're in Asheville or another Western North Carolina hub, there is no shortage of high-quality food choices. European flavors are popular; German schnitzel with spaetzle shows up on menus around town. Mexican fare is another plentiful option, and Caribbean spices have found a place in the Asheville area too. Many local menus provide vegetarian and vegan choices as well as gluten-free options.
