Farm to table concept. Completely overrated. The food is good, but far overpriced. And the portion sizes are below average. Service was fair. It was busy and crowded. But as I stated earlier, it's an overrated experience.

We met my mother-in-law here for a quick lunch. Morganton has a growing downtown with a couple of very cute places. This restaurant being rated very well was an obvious choice. The service started off strong but quickly went downhill. They were very busy, so...More

Salads and sandwiches are prepared fresh so things can be omitted as requested. They have three vegetarian options but I'm a meat eater so I have not really looked. My vegetarian and no gluten friends are quite happy there.
