The Restaurant at Gideon Ridge Ratings and Reviews
As always Gideon Ridge Inn's restaurant did not disappoint! We brought friends who had not been there before, and they were very impressed, planning to bring their adult children along in the future. While it is a bit of a drive from Banner Elk, it was definitely worth it.
Gideon Ridge was absolutely phenomenal. From the inn itself to dinner, Gideon Ridge was hands down the highlight of our trip to Blowing Rock. The inn is quaint and comfortable, with a charming quality. Dinner was exquisite and one of the best meals I have ever had. The ambiance, the staff, and the chef himself are incredible. You must go if you ever find yourself in Blowing Rock.
Never disappointing. Outstanding service & Food. The portions are a bit small, however the quality is very high. Tucked away on a Mountain top Ridge near Blowing Rock, with great views and some trails to explore. Best place for fine outdoor dining in the High Country Awesome Place.
Do not recommend for Children.
Wonderful. Outstanding service, and delicious dinner. Restaurant (and Inn) staff are gracious, friendly, and accommodating. Chef Hunter Womble has a real talent for marrying flavors and ingredients to create masterful offerings. Ambiance, setting, quality of food, and overall experience were exactly what we were looking for. Can't wait to return!
Gideon Ridge is an excellent restaurant with a great staff and excellent views. The chef came out a couple of times to answer any questions we had, and of course receive our compliments on the excellent food! Several vegetarian options were available, and we were very satisfied with the entire experience.
This was a delightful dining experience. Gideon Ridge Inn has beautiful mountains views, lovely setting in old home, and we enjoyed dining alfresco. Service was friendly and competent. Food was artfully presented and absolutely delicious. We enjoyed chanterelle bruscetta and melon, mint, cucumber salad and duck breast and salmon entrees - highly recommend.
Can't say enough about how much we love Gideon Ridge.We live not far away in the foothills and it's a favorite now for us.We like to arrive a little early and have a drink and enjoy the spectacular view.Always seated exactly at reservation time and from the Chef,to the servers and of couse the food could not be better.Already looking foward to our next visit.
We stayed 2 nights at the Inn eating both breakfast and dinner. The staff were warm and informative and the service was exceptional. Only one main course was not as tasty as everything else. I teach culinary arts so while we were celebrating our 44th wedding anniversary it was an additional treat for me to be served by well trained staff and explore different locally grown and unique combinations at each meal. We will return in the future.
We went to the restaurant at Gideon Ridge for my birthday. I saw mixed reviews and was hesitant but I am glad I made the trip! The food was creative and delicious from the appetizers to dessert, and we were not disappointed. The staff was friendly and attentive. The view of the mountains was absolutely beautiful! We will be eating there again!
The best meal we had while staying in the area. I had the sea bass and my wife had the NY strip. Both of us were very pleased. Met the chef. He's a pro and very personable with the guests. My fish was pan seared, very light, juicy and well seasoned on a bed of vegetables. We had a bottle of wine and cocktails. The bill was $180 not including the tip. I will go back for sure.
In our opinion, Gideon Ridge is the best of High Country dining. The food is delicious and the service is friendly and helpful. Our waiter, Tyler, made our guests and us feel like he enjoyed his work and wanted us to enjoy our dining experience. Hunter, the chef, is creative and uses local ingredients to create culinary masterpieces. My husband's sea bass was extraordinary and the key lime pie and strawberry shortcakes were also 5 star! Reservations are a must! Book early if you are planning to be in Blowing Rock in the summer or fall.
