Ambiance , CHEF, service, relaxing, best fresh desserts , reasonable prices ,and the special was soft shell crab. Now where else can you get that in the mountains? Four stars. EXCELLENT! A special place for a special occasion. Dress code: Vacation casual.

We really enjoyed our visit and would definitely go back. We also enjoyed walking around the town of Black Mountain (which is within walking distance) and going in several of the... More

Came here for our 33rd anniversary and was worth every penny and calorie! The service was very good also. Met a sweet couple that was celebrating their 57th anniversary and was from a town in NC that had the same name as our last name. You must save room for dessert!

Hi Scott, thanks for the review! Your story is a familiar one. A lot of people visit here and meet others with some kind of connection. I hope the other couple enjoyed their anniversary dinner as much as you enjoyed yours. What did you have for dessert? Maybe next year you can stay overnight in our Anniversary Room! More
