We loved everything we had. Portions are generous. You won't be hungry but you have to try desert. It's the best part.

We have eaten at Gideon Ridge twice in the last month. The food is very good, well prepared and plated. The lamb shank, marinated for quite some time, had a nice flavor and good consistency. The prime Delmonico with green pepper sauce came in even better! One of the best I have had in quite some time. The room is relatively small and cozy. It was too cool to eat outside but that looks friendly too. The service is variable. The first night it was good, adequate, the second helter skelter. The server came by at unpredictable times and completed the required tasks in sections. The drink order came in stages, the act of taking the dinner order came over two visits and so on. For a high end restaurant this should not happen. Still ignoring the server the food made up for it.

I could eat here 7 nights a week. Love the menu selections as they are not your typical appetizer and entree choices. The chef creates delicious meals and all are very good! The view is spectacular as well.

What a elegant and great dinner, for two. Chef Hunter Womble is awesome, after each course he would come and check to make sure all was well. We had the Calamari fantastic. Continued to the Brussel Sprout salad, with Blue Cheese and Bacon, need I say more. Main course I had the Lamb, so tender and tasty. My Wife had the Speckled Trout, also very tasty. I will return the staff was so friendly. Loved it!

Cozy restaurant in a B&B that has great views and awesome food. A little pricey but well worth the price. Great ambiance, service, and menu selections as well as bar & wine selections. They book up fast so make your reservation at least a month in advance.
