The best of everything

If you want the best food, the best service, the best view of mountains, eat at Newsman's at The Orchard Inn in Saluda, NC. The food is locally sourced, highly creative, and artistically presented. You might say, "It's too pretty to eat." But don't let that you stop from enjoying one of the best meals you'll find in these parts. Normally, the evening meals are served late in the week and on the weekends. Because the restaurant is in an Inn, it does not serve lunch. You'd be wise to reserve a table in advance. The evening meals have a fixed menu with a good selections of options, usually including beef, chicken, fish, veal, etc. I think there are four courses -- served in courses on white linen. And the wine list? Fantastic! It's not cheap, but not the most expensive restaurant either. Dinner runs about $65 per person, note including the wine. But it is a wonderful experience to sit in the dining room, looking at the mountains and be served beautiful, creative, and great-tasting food. Go there for that special occasion. Go as often as you can.

Consistently outstanding

This is our favorite restaurant. The menu changes constantly, but always offers great selections. The first and second courses are generally quite unique and make choosing one very difficult. Wait staff is among the best you will find anywhere.

We planned our next time as we drove away

The peaceful, inviting atmosphere begins on the way up the driveway and continues throughout the building, porches, and grounds. The best aspects of our experience were: 1. Hospitality of every staff member we encountered, 2. An excellent menu and wine list, 3. Each dinner course was A +++ !!, 4. Cathy, our server made us feel right at home; she explained the choices thoroughly and answered our questions clearly, 5. The dining area was almost full, but with the placement of tables and the view we never felt even a bit crowded.

Fantastic evening !!!

What more could anyone ask for!

We were so delighted the first time we visited and ate there that we keep going back for more. We were seated at the Perry Como table which is a somewhat secluded table. The food is artfully exquisite. A limited, simple menu that changes with the freshness of the local foods available. What does that mean? It means the creativity is kicked up many knotches in flavor and beauty. I highly recommend it. Make sure to call ahead for reservations. And dress nice, it’s a special place. Wonderful views.

Always comfortably elegant and excellent

We just came home from a 5-night stay at the Orchard Inn, which included 3 dinners in a row at Newman's, all wonderful. The menu changes weekly (to offer what is seasonally available), so we had the same menu each night, but, with the options they offer, we were able to enjoy new flavors each evening. There were 3 choices for 3 of the courses, plus 4 main course options, every option delicious and beautiful and prepared with great care. Each item provided layers of lovely flavors, all enhancing that course's primary focus. We had all four of the main course options, each fabulous (beef tenderloin, veal tenderloin, duck confit, and tilefish), as were the desserts. For other courses, we loved the ramp and potato soup, the salad (simple but awesome!), and the perfectly prepared and shrimp and scallop offerings. The excellent wine list provides any matching you could want, with great choices by the glass, and the menu offers suggestions to help those who may not know wines well enough to choose the perfect pairing. The staff is professional, warm, friendly and knowledgeable, and every experience we have ever had (many, many times over 34 years!) has been delightful. We believe that the dinner experience is an excellent value for the price, including the wine offerings. Please give yourself the treat of coming here!
