Menus & Prices
Each evening we present two menus; An "A-La-Carte" menu, for those who wish to design their own meals, and a four course "Chef’s Menu" designed by Chef Andrew Long, and which is different every day, at a set price every day. See both menus and prices below. Our cuisine can be described as "Sophisticated Southern Country Gourmet Mostly Organic Farm-To-Table Fine Dining". What we offer is gourmet fine dining of extreme quality and freshness; a meticulous cuisine prepared with mindfulness, mindful of our mountain region’s heritage, and mindful of the high quality of the natural ingredients, with a level of care and personal service second to none.
