On a winter's evening, The Orchard offers a notably cozy and warm respite from the cold. This was my first visit, as it was for my three friends. We were a little tentative to travel at night from Highlands to Cashiers, but it turned out to be a reasonably easy drive. Even though it was winter, we did call ahead... More

The food is always excellent; service can vary, even if they are not very busy. Some of the wait staff is superb; then there is the rest of the wait staff. The menu is the same as it has been for years, but the specials provide a little variety. "Danny Boy's" fried chicken livers are great; I've never had a... More

My husband and I, along with with my sister and brother in law, came to The Orchard Restaurant for our New Years Eve dinner. We have a place in Toxaway that we get to when we can and we are always looking for a really good place to go out to eat at. I highly recommend The Orchard Restaurant. The... More

I have been dining here for 12+ years. Chad and Travis, brothers/owners, know how to operate a restaurant. The Orchard is always consistent and offers great nightly specials. There are two reasons I do not give them an excellent rating. Their regular menu has not changed in 12+ years and their wine menu stinks!

My sister and her family have lived in this area for years. Every time we visit they take us to dinner at the Orchard. We have never had a bad meal. From venison to trout everything is always cooked to perfection. The staff is friendly and the waiters are well schooled in the food and drink. My sister says the... More

We were here for New Years Day dinner. My husband said it was the best venison he ever had. I tend toward the vegetarian and their mushroom ravioli with lots of other veggies in a luscious sauce was to die for. So often the vegetarian choices do not get much attention -- not here. The wine and drink choices were... More

My favorite restaurant in Highlands/Cashiers area! Summer and Winter vacation, it's my first choice. We're from Fort Lauderdale, Fl and have many 5 star restaurant options in our area that we frequent and The Orchard is right there with them if not exceeding them! The food is fresh, gourmet, delicious!!!! The wine is superb and so is the Sommelier which... More

Although the warm winter season reduced tourist traffic in the area, we still needed a reservation for The Orchard. Our server was very friendly, the wine by the glass selection very good, and between my sons and I we sampled several specials, appetizers and dessert. The venison special was out of this world delicious. We rounded out the meal with... More

We took our family here, and at first our kids were not happy about going to a nice restaurant that did not have a kids menu. Our youngest got the quail appetizer, and he loved it! My husband got the venison, and he said it was delicious. Our daughter inhaled her filet. Our middle child got the Orchard chicken, and... More
