High Point visit ----food recs?

I will be in High Point for a few days next week attending furniture show. Love seafood and live in New England. I'm looking for your favorite local spots that prepare fresh fish/shellfish in a "southern" you can tell not looking for Maine lobster. Thanks

  1. I have the same question as the original poster! I'll be in High Point for about 5 days, also at furniture show, and would love to have some good (great) food. I'm not concerned about price or type of cuisine, just looking for good food. I'm looking for local, not chains.

    Are there no good places to eat in High Point? I ask because there were no responses to the original post - and that was a year ago! And, if there are no good places, can someone offer suggestions for the next best thing (in other words, should I just stick with chains?)

      I would recommend the following:

      O'So for seafood
      Gianno's for Italian
      Blue Water Grill for seafood
      Steak Street for steak
      Southern Roots for southern food (actually in Jamestown)

      Blue Water Grill
      126 E State Ave, High Point, NC 27262

      Steak Street Restaurant
      3915 Sedgebrook St, High Point, NC 27265

      Southern Roots
      119 E Main St, Jamestown, NC 27282

        Went to souther roots last year was ok
        Bimini in High Point was a rec from a local.....had some kind of a steamed pot of shellfish again fair. I was surprised no response to my post last year,,,says alot about the food there...lots of after hour drinkers at furniture show that dont care about food

      2. If it were me, I'd take the time to go to Lexington for barbeque.

        1. Unfortunately High Point isn't really known as a bastion of fine dining, but there are a few decent spots. I'll second O'so--it's worth a trip. I'd also mention Liberty steakhouse--decent craft brews and the food is fine. You'll find many more restaurant choices in Greensboro, just a short drive away.

            I will seond liberty. I went for the first time this past summer and it was actually pretty good. Do follow Sue' suggestion and at least try a few places in lexington. Also hit greensboro for Saigon and a lot more food options. Just 15 to 20 min away?

          2. try Marisol on High Point Rd in Greensboro. Excellent but on pricey side.

              That flash fried oyster looks like it might have my name on it.

              1. re: Sue in Mt P

                personally 1618 W Seafood Grille is my favorite for seafood in Greensboro. you can google for reviews. Marisol much closer to HP. Much quieter as well.
