We live in the area, but had not visited the Wisteria until we recently had a weekend guest. Our mistake. This farm-to-table restaurant deserves all the good reviews it has gotten and the media attention as well. We enjoyed the Sunday Brunch. This is no buffet. Great off the menu food and excellent service. Two of us had the Wisteria... More

The atmosphere is great as well as service and food. The best hummus and pimento cheese ever. Love the presentation of the food and that it is local farm to table.

I found Wisteria on Trip Advisor because Morgantown was halfway between Knoxville and Pittsboro and we were meeting up. Who knew Morgantown off I-40 was so picturesque. This small restaurant and bar is charming and well designed. A wood ceiling damps the noise and you can hear people speaking. I had the special frittata with a turnip beet salad on... More

Limited menu but food is superb. Very small place but creative, innovative southern menu. Service was a touch rough, but its tough to get polished servers up in the mountains. Atmosphere warm and cozy.

I've eaten at Wisteria a few times and have not been disappointed. They have a good wine list and they give each dish care and attention. On my last visit I tried the gnocchi. It was the lightest, most delicate gnocchi that I have had anywhere. My niece had the burger and fries. The burger was hefty and flavorful. The... More

What a pleasant surprise to find such delicious food in a small, quaint southern town! The biscuits had a buttery, crusty outside with a fluffy delectable inside and were topped off by homemade jelly. They were worth every calorie!! I had bacon which was no regular store bought meat...delicious. My husband had sausage gravy and enjoyed every bite. The only... More
