Small menu but decent variety. Trout was tasty, daughter's cheeseburger good. Brussel sprout appetizer was a hit with all of us!

An unexpected change in plans had me swinging by Native after a brief search on here for a good nearby restaurant. What a fantastic surprise! I sat at the bar and the barkeep was absolutely excellent. I'd brought along a book to keep myself busy...More

We chose the covered patio which was very nice on a late summer day. They also have heaters and wall covers so should also be available in cold weather. Nice menu selection and we both enjoyed our meal. Good selection of local beers. Nice atmosphere....More

Native was started by two North Carolina couples who recognized the need for sustainable food practices, and a responsibility that we all share when it comes to our soil, water and air. We believe strongly in supporting farming techniques, which are sustainable, organic, and regenerative. These local farms restore the fabric of rural communities, decrease water and air pollution, preserve and build topsoil and produce wonderful crops. The foods they deliver to our tables are high in nutritive value and are without chemical residue. Our support to these dedicated farmers yields healthier ingredients that strengthens our sense of local community, builds our local community and, most importantly, it is a vital step toward protecting these resources for future generations. It is important to us that we not only provide local food, but that we strive to support our local breweries, artists, musicians and community. Native is a gathering place to celebrate our local culture, and we hope that you enjoy your visit with us!
