American | Blowing Rock, Blowing Rock

The very best restaurant! They have found perfection in every detail and every dish. The location is also magnificent. We had the seafood salad and pate to start. The seafood salad was fresh and tasty and the pate amazing! We each had the pork tenderloin and it was out of this world. It was cooked to the perfect temperature and was tender and the black lentils and asparagus each had their own delicious seasoning, texture and taste. Truly a work of art! We had the flourless chocolate torte and it was the best we’ve ever had. Jessica was our server and helped us with every course selection, was attentive throughout the evening and made the experience wonderful! The Chef also came out twice to make sure everything and everyone was enjoying themselves. Gideon Ridge is perfection! More

This is a unexpected gem of a find. - That's the best kind! A beautiful Inn and Restaurant to enjoy anytime or on a special occasion. The ambiance is quietly captivating. What a wonderful place to watch the recent Blue Moon rise over the mountains and through the trees while enjoying an outstanding flavorful meal sipping Pinot Grigio/Gris, Adelsheim, Willamette Valley (OR) 2015!
