Creative menu, good value, well prepared, nice interior with very high ceilings so conversation is possible, an eclectic clientele, restaurant has good level of energy. A top choice in a small town where better dining is kind of scarce.

I've been here for lunch, dinner, and special events. Food is delicious, local ingredients and creative presentation. Wine dinners are quite fun, with a special price for 4-course pairings.

Creative menu, excellent beer and wine selection, attentive service, with tasteful contemporary decor - it's a find in Boone. The perfect place to eat and relax after walking through town (it's at the end of town). We got in without a reservation but there were just two of us - a party of five was told it would be nearly...

Fish tacos were excellent and service was quick and friendly. Highly recommend if you are in Boone. Parking at lunch was easy for me.

We had a great dinner at Vidalia - a fabulous mid-range dinner in Downtown Boone. The Chicken & Waffles were the best we've had and should not be missed! The truffle mac n cheese (a special) was phenomenal and our waitress was great. Vidalia does a great job sourcing their food from local farms so the menu has a little... More

I'm a local, and had never eaten here because of the price point. I got to eat at Vidalia for a corporate lunch. We had a lot of people, and I would say most of my group had a good experience. The meatloaf of the day was amazing, but my "Cuban" sandwich was the farthest thing from an actual Cuban... More

I just stopped in at Vidalia last night (downtown Boone, near AppState campus) and has an incredible experience! I chose to eat at the bar even though I was offered a table because I was eating solo, and I just like eating at the bar anyway. Nathan, my server/ bartender was great -- the place was busy as it was... More

This was a fun place to stop in and have some lunch. They had a great collection of wines to choose from. The sandwiches and salads were great.

My first visit, and recommended by my wife, who had made a previous visit. Very good quality and good service. Nice atmosphere. Clean. No loud music. Very nice location. Downtown Boone is cool. Used to live there many years ago. It was nice then but really nice now.

Always order the mussel appetizer. Get a staff recommendation on wine. They have a unique list and I've always been thrilled with their suggestions.
