Places to Eat

From dressed up to dressed down, our area restaurants offer everything from casual dining fare, like burgers and barbeque, to something a little more special, like local trout or a thick prime rib.

Whatever you have a taste for, you’ll find it here!  Becoming more and more well known around the Southeast for restaurants featuring locally sourced produce and meats, our area has become quite the draw for folks from Asheville, Charlotte, Atlanta, Raleigh and beyond.  Award winning chefs have found a haven for their creative menus in our area.

You can certainly Craft a special menu and dining experience each day you are here.  During the summer season, be sure to visit a local farmer’s market for the freshest veggies, fruits and herbs! Local specialties like the ramp or fresh mountain trout are musts during your mountain visit.

Our restaurants, mostly locally owned, certainly put the Craft into their menus and into the preparation of their foods.  We look forward to sharing our great foods with you!
