The building is a bit off the beaten path, but the food and wine were excellent. We had a goat cheese called Rowdy Gentleman, great Shrimp and Grits (menu calls them 'life changing') and wonderful salmon. Would recommend this place. Would certainly go back.

Read the reviews and expected it to be expensive. The portion sizes weren't necessarily an issue as some had mentioned. We had shrimp and grits and beef tenderloins. Beef was good. Shrimp and grits only okay. Smoked tomato soup was very good. Don't recall the...More

We had a delicious dinner at IvyWild. The service was great. The food was delicious and we especially enjoyed the presentation of each dish. A few surprise offerings from the chef made the dinner even more enjoyable. Great place for couples.

One of the best filet mignons I've had--and I've had great homemade ones. Delicious pork, grits, and an amazing chocolate fondue-like dessert. We'll be back.

Very limited menu...also very expensive choices. We opted for soup and salad and two cheeses for appetizers. She crab soup was not hot and too fishy tasting. Salad was good. They now have a bar so we didn't have to bring our own wine. Big...More

What a surprise to discover destination dining, hidden away in the mists of Sewanee Mountain. The inventive, chef-driven menu features local farmers, foragers, and organics. BYOB. Seating from 5 to 9 PM on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday.
