This is connected with the Old Edward Hotel and the atmosphere is upscale with linens and attentive service. We had a nice lunch here. All lunches were tasty, including the chicken salad and short rib pizza.

After a pleasant wait in the outdoor wine garden our table was private, the wine list more than adequate, and the entrees were very good. Service was good as expected making for an enjoyable evening,

I've only eaten here for breakfast, but my reaction to that was a Wow! The absolutely best stone-ground grits I've ever had, perfect omelets, and the lightest biscuits that alone are worth coming here for.

Delicious food, exquisite service. Had both supper and breakfast and the only problem was making a selection from the menu.

This is what we came to highlands, nc for. Fine dinning experience in every aspect. The service was amazing. Attention to every detail. The southern pork chop was cooked perfectly. Our expectations were exceeded at this fine restaurant. Thank you very much.

We look forward to trying Madison's. Is there a dress code? We plan to stay on Sunday the 19th and Monday the 20th of April. Are there different menu items featured on different days? Cordially, Steve

Resort casual is perfect. Old Edwards is a leisure resort, and you need to be comfortable. Women even wear nice jeans sometimes, or a simple, unfussy dress. Or if you're feeling dressy, that is fine too, but I wouldn't... More

Innovative farm-fresh cuisine in an environment of relaxed elegance. Most menu items sourced locally and grown organically at The Farm at Old Edwards. Dine indoors year-round or outdoors in the warm months at the Wine Garden beside the beautiful waterfall.
