Third time at restaurant and always excellent. Make reservations. Food and service is fantastic. The lobster roll is great......my wife had. I had flank steak which was best ever. Best restaurant in Blowing Rock.

Very nice restaurant, porch was very cozy and comfortable. We went for the fire oven pizza, was good but wished they had more choices. We went early so did not need reservations. Would eat there again. Good service, reasonable prices.

Bistro Roca is always a favorite in Blowing Rock. Casual yet excellent food. Service was prompt and courteous. We had the trout, chicken, and crabcakes, all delicious. The chicken had a sweet flavor that melted into smoky. Flourless chocolate cake was a flawless finish.

For atmosphere and food this is my favorite restaurant in blowing rock, especially if you sit on the back porch. The wedge salad and wood fired macaroni and cheese are to die for!

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