The waitress recommended to add prosciutto to our fig appetizer with manchego and that was a great suggestion. Our plates were beautifully arranged and well presented.

Broad selection of entrees. Service was helpful and prompt. The waiter had good knowledge of all items on the menu. Plenty of parking. Somewhat noisy but porch seating may have been better.

The antlers bar is so cozy, could have sat there all night. Loved the roasted figs. Service in the bar and restaurant were 5 stars all the way. I can't say enough about the roasted trout, phenomenal. Sit on the porch for dinner if you...More

I usually come just for lunch and usually on a Monday. Seems the food quality has diminished. Today, I had the chicken panini with a house salad and a cup of kale & fennel soup. The soup was good but too salty and the chicken...More

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