We frequently have dinner here. Alway excellent food, great service and good value. This visit was for later evening cocktails at the bar. Really attractive, rustic bar setting, with greta bartenders.

They took us without a reservation, and they were very busy, sat us within 5 mins. Staff and servers were on top of our every need and the food was delicious and plentiful.

Coming here due to the very positive reviews and I have to chime in. This was a great lunch in nice a quiet atmosphere. It was however crowded. So consider reserving a table at forehand.

Off the beaten path, cozy setting with exceptional cuisine, fireplace, great cocktails and amazing wood fired pizzas that change seasonally. A favorite destination for us locals!

Try the calamari. Delicious. Sister restaurant to the Gideon Ridge B&B and restaurant. Located on a side street in Blowing Rock.

We really enjoyed our meal at Bistro Roca. The atmosphere is great, the servers are super, and the food is excellent. It is quite pricey though. So it's a one time stop when we are visiting Blowing Rock.

No but there are a few others in Blowing Rock, downtown that dogs can sit with you outside. And they bring them water.
