    Beautiful location and atmosphere. Went for NYE dinner and chose the special menu. Filet and lobster tail were ordered by both of us and I have to assume that all the entrees for the “special NYE menu” were pre-cooked at various temperatures because the filets cooked medium rare were dry, tough and had zero juice and zero flavor. Can only assume it sat under a heat lamp for a long time. It was extremely disappointing. Sides were the same. Super skinny overcooked asparagus and potatoes au gratin that were dry, cold and without flavor. Service was excellent and again atmosphere was lovely but don’t expect freshly cooked if there for a special occasion/holiday.

    This was our first trip to dine here and we will be back. Our NYE dinner experience here was great! Our server Nancy was amazing, drinks were nice, food was awesome, and after our dinner we went to the bar to continue our evening. The bartenders were great too, despite the place seemingly being busier than normal due to the holiday festivities.

    The ambiance is wonderful, remindful of an English country estate. The food was plentiful, like home cooked, all our favorites. even though we were the last seating, no worry about running out. Excellent cocktail and wine list. Service was spot on. The entire experience was fantastic. Kudos to the Hostess who was nice enough to move our group from the back banquet room to a cozy corner banquette which we thoroughly enjoyed.

    We met our sons at Rocky Face for an early dinner. They attend WCU. We will definitely return to the restaurant and probably for a weekend visit. It was so peaceful and relaxing. The food (delicious), staff (shout out to Chris-our waiter) (very nice and accommodating), view (beautiful) and we were able to take our time and enjoy. Our sons loved it and may be back to play a round of golf soon. Thank you!

    This is a really gorgeous restaurant with beautiful mountain and golf course views. Our waitress was excellent and food was good. My companions ordered better than I did and their meals were excellent. I ordered one of their Specials that I didn't really care for. But there were several things on the menu I want to try. We will definitely return.
