We had a great time here for our anniversary. Everything we had was very good, from appetizer to entree. Service was great and the atmosphere was definitely good for a quiet date night. We will definitely go again and will recommend it to friends.

We have always had wonderful meals at the restaurant at Gideon's Ridge. This dinner was excellent, enough so to make us book in again the next evening! The mushroom bruschetta was divine, the fruits de mer appetizer was delicious (use your spoon to get every drop of the yummy broth!) , and both of our entrees were outstanding. The duck breast was crisped on the outside, tender and tasty. The grouper was fresh, tasty, and a nice thickness. All of the accompanying sides were also delicious. The pomegranate cheesecake was the perfect finish. Service was attentive, and we enjoyed a visit from the chef. An outstanding meal; we will be back!!

This is our second time eating at the Gideon Ridge Inn. The chef and food are amazing! The location and view is intimate and breathtaking. Our only minus this trip is that we felt somewhat abandoned by our server. Felt like we got more attention from the chef who comes out to visit and check on everyone (nice touch!), that we did our wait staff. Once the food was delivered to the table we didn't see her again until we had to flag her down to get the check. Perhaps they were understaffed that night . . . but it still wouldn't stop us from coming back on our next trip to Blowing Rock!

Pretty much a wonderful dining experience this evening. Attentive yet not overbearing service, truly top-notch food and cocktails, and excellent desserts to top everything off. Do not miss the mushroom bruschetta appetizer! Not inexpensive but certainly worth the investment. We live 5 hours away but we shall return.

Simply great. The food was fresh and well prepared. Arguably the best restaurant in WNC and I've been in most of the choices. Chef Womble told us, during one of his two visits to our table, that he ordered my striped bass that morning and it was received at 4 pm. It was just outstanding in preparation, presentation, and taste. My wife had the lamb shank and loved it. Every course was top notch. Excellent wine list as well. Looking forward to a future visit to Blowing Rock and the Ridge.

Perfect evening for patio dining to celebrate husband's birthday. Patio spot was ideal for quiet conversation and beautiful views on woodland garden. Wait staff was excellent. Menu was creative; prep and presentation followed the lead.

The view & ambiance was superb. We sat on an open patio overlooking the mountains. Our waitress was very friendly and informative. There was no rushing. Our table was ours for the night. The chef came out and visited each table.

My wife have been to this restaurant on just a dining night out as well as our last two anniversaries. There is not much more to say other then it is a Gem in the Mountains of North Carolina. Mountain ambiance , Great food well presented and great service.

We had dinner on the terrace on Saturday evening 7/16/16. A beautiful setting and an intriguing menu that had us debating the choices. Excellent, creative food and knowledgeable service, alerting us as to what was running low for the entrees.

Turn off of Hwy at the "The Blowing Rock" sign and then make a left on to Gideon's Ridge Lane. You'll soon find your at a spectacular viewing spot of the Blue Ridge Mountains at the restaurant site, and a few of the outdoor tables offer this view. Other outdoor tables have a beautiful view of the naturally landscaped backyard with Koi pond. Rabbits and deer can be seen passing by to graze in the evenings. The restaurant is inside a B&B and has a lot of old school charm. The service there will make you feel at home and the food is worth the $$. Be prepared to spend around $130 for 2 without ordering a bottle of wine. The menu offers chicken liver pate, unique and very fresh salads and the fish entree is always fresh caught that morning. A truly special place that's worth visiting! My date and I both had the grouper, and it was cooked perfectly. Try the german chocolate cake for dessert - it's special. Wine list is impressive, and they also offer good wines by the glass. I had a glass of the red blend and it's velvety smooth. They also have a nice offering of homemade mixed drinks. Loved that the chef even stopped by our table to be sure we were happy. Can't wait to go back!

My wife and I have been coming to Blowing Rock for many years. This year we decided to try Gideon Ridge for our anniversary dinner and were not disappointed. The service was outstanding, the drinks and wine were first class and the food was definitely some of the best we've ever had anywhere in the world. We will be back.

This visit was our fourth visit. We have never been disappointed. This evening a bad wind storm struck just after we arrived. The staff had to make changes with the outside dining (which is wonderful when weather permits). The transition was very smooth...everyone working quietly and efficiently. We, thankfully, were seated in the first dining room. Another delightful evening at Gideon on the Ridge.. . love this place! Our waitress was wonderfully attentive. The Chef visited our table to make sure we were satisfied. Martha Bodie ..
