Restaruant at Gideon Ridge Inn, Blowing Rock NC

I'll be staying at Gideon Ridge Inn in Blowing Rock NC next weekend. Does anyone know anything about their restaurant ("Restaurant G" I believe)? I'm considering it for dinner Saturday night. I'd also be interested in recommendations for lunch in the area (also for Saturday). I like all kinds of good food. The person I'll be with doesn't prefer seafood. Thanks for any advice you can offer!

  1. I would go to Rowlands at Westglow over the restaurant at GR. I have been only twice and while not bad, nothing exceptional...but the view is great. It has been quite some time since I visited but the last time I went it was a set menu with all guests seated at once. Lunch at Bistro Roca or Storie Street Grill are fine. You will not be in a dining mecca but should be able to find some decent meals.

      Thanks, winefuhrer! Those look like very appealing recommendations. I didn't know about Bistro Roca; their menu posted on line looks quite good! Depending on whether we're feeling like a small drive, I'm also considering the Gamekeeper in Boone. Thoughts about that one?

      Cheers,

        Gamekeeper is actually on Shulls Mill Road closer to Blowing Rock than to Boone. It has been awhile since my last visit but I have heard some positive things. If you are up to driving to Boone, I would say Joy Bistro and Vidalia are the best bets.
