Really just not impressed. The resort spent thousands of dollars to upgrade the restaurant and change the menu. Seems to me like a lot of money for the results. I think that the menu is too limited and the prices are, in my point, outrageous for what you get. A simple comparison with the other restaurant on the lake, Larkins... More

This was recommended for steaks to us at check in. We sat in the bar area because we did not make reservations. We had a nice view of Lake Lure and our waitress, Wendy, was super nice and was also the bartender. While she was very busy she didn't miss a beat. She was very attentive and efficient, great personality.... More

One of the best fine dining experiences on Lake Lure. They are rarely overbooked on weekdays, ensuring a table by the windows! The food is perfectly prepared and the waitstaff genuinely care that you have a wonderful experience.

We went here for the blackened prime rib...The meat was good, the potatoes were dry and tasteless and vegs were tough. But there is a beautiful view of the lake. For the price we were not happy.

We were here in June and again in September. Every time we went to this restaurant it was closed. They advertised a Friday night event and when we went was told only for residents.??

We had lunch here as we were staying in Fox Run. We arrived just as they were opening. There appeared to only be one server the entire time we were there. Service was very slow and prices were on the high side. However the view was great and the food was average as well!

We were there for our family reunion in July. Decided 3 of us wanted to give Sunday brunch a try. Went to the reception desk and was asked if we had a reservation.
