My husband made reservations and we were seated promptly. It's gorgeous inside with a warm atmosphere. Our waiter was super friendly and gave us great service. I ordered the filet mignon and had mashed potatoes and veggies on the side ...it was cooked perfectly and it was all delicious. I ordered the peanut butter pie which is house made and... More

My wife and I came here to celebrate my birthday having read and heard good things about it. The evening started off fine, the service attentive and the appetizers good. The main course is where the troubles began. While my buffalo filet was delicious, the scallops Dijon ordered by my wife was rather bland, or tasteless. Things worsened after this.... More

A warm and comfortable old stone inn with a beautiful 'newish' sunroom addition - the Old South Mountain Inn is the perfect spot for Sunday morning brunch. Almost anything that could be wished for is offered on the buffet - from fresh fruit and salad to roast beef and potatoes to egges and sausage to french toast and chipped beef.....not... More

Family dinner here on Christmas Eve which was very disappointing. Nice rustic atmosphere but that was the highlight. Most food overcooked (all the steaks at our table), bland sides and wilted salad. I hate to say it but go to Dennys and pay a half to a third of what we did for this quality. Service was ok but had... More

Our family and extended family dined here for the Christmas Eve dinner. We made reservations weeks ago which is necessary if you plan to dine here and not have to wait. The woman who "greeted" us when we walked in did not seem festive or pleasant. Thankfully our waitress and the other staff we interacted with were very nice and... More

I ordered a $28.00 filet mignon on Saturday December 17th. I asked to waitress if I could have the rice medley instead of the baked potato which came with the meal. I had had a baked potato earlier in the day for lunch. She said NO, because the kitchen was too busy to deal with that. I couldn't have been... More

Been wanting to stop by this inn for years and was not disappointed when my husband and I finally had dinner there. Definitely fine dining. Need reservations. Hostess turned several couples who did not have reservations and the inn did not have the wait staff to serve a full diningroom. Food and service was excellent. Our waiter, Chris, was attentive....

We had a party of 16 to celebrate my mother's 80th birthday. Had reservations for a Saturday evening but they were very busy and we had to wait for about 30 minutes. Bar area was already crowded with about 40 folks for a wedding rehearsal dinner so just had to stand inside the foyer and wait. But once seated, the... More
