We thought that Expedia deal meant that this place would be "iffy" but it was comfortable, partially updated, clean and quiet. It also had an attached family run restaurant that was great!

The service was fine, the décor is dated. The water that was served tasted stale, like it had been sitting for days. The salads looked nice and fresh, no wilted lettuce or anything, so we had hope for the meal. I had the chicken piccata and my husband had the fettuccine alfredo with grilled chicken. In short it tasted like... More

Great Italian food. Nice folks. Good seafood menu since owners ran a restaurant on the coast for thirteen years. Pleasant place to spend a good meal with good friends

When you reach the top of the mountain so to speak on Hwy 21, traveling from NC's Piedmont, a very nice italian meal can be had at Nikola's Restaurant located at High Meadow Inn. The restaurant is about 15 minutes south of Sparta. Don't be put off by the exterior. It is showing some age. But the food here is... More

For the price the food was average. My wife had lasagna and the noodles were far over done, however, I thought the bologone was tasty. I had the red snapper and it was an "ok" piece of fish it was seasoned and prepared well, however, ity just want a great piece of fish to start with. Both of these items... More

There aren't many restaurants in this area. We had excellent service and the meals were very good and a great value. I would have given a higher rating except the ambiance was not the greatest and as another reviewer pointed out, the decor was dated. If in the area again, I would return to High Meadows Inn. (Is there any... More

Arriving late in the afternoon, early evening with three little children, no other restaurant nearby and we stayed at the hotel, this was a disappointing dining experience. It took about fifteen minutes before we had any service, an hour to get the food we ordered. At that point one of the kids fell a sleep, other one was hungry and... More

We had an excellent dinner, and at a very reasonable price. The veal is the specialty, but the menu is extensive. The sauces are wonderfully prepared by an obviously talented chef. If your staying at one of the Bed & Breakfast places off of the Blue Ridge Parkway, and the staff points you in the other direction.......instead head this way... More
