It's a great place for good food. The pizza is out of this world. I love their subs and of course their pasta dishes are the best too.
When we go in everyone knows my daughter and it feels like a family.
Great family place to eat.

WELCOME TO SEASON'S Fresh Local Ingredients. Inspired World Cuisine.Though easily accessible-just past the city limits of downtown Hendersonville-Season's at Highland Lake gives diners a premier culinary experience that is worlds away from the hustle and bustle of city life. Entertaining guests year-round for breakfast, lunch and dinner, our restaurant is indeed, as varied, rich and enticing as the four distinct seasons from which its name is derived. Diners will experience a fresh cornucopia of seasonal herbs, vegetables, and edible flowers hand-picked in our onsite organic garden. All served to you in a presentation that is vibrant, eclectic and imaginative-not to mention savory. Once you dine with us, you'll see why we have become one of the most sought-after, and celebrated dining experiences in all of Western North Carolina.
We enjoyed the food and atmosphere at Season's. We visited for the breakfast buffet and an evening dinner at Season's. The large windows were nice in the mornings especially with a variety of birds, squirrels, and other wildlife running around.

My wife and I came here for lunch to avoid the crushing crowds at the Apple Festival in nearby Hendersonville.
Parking is literally a tight squeeze; the two main parking areas are pretty small. One enters through a front or rear door, peruses a fairly large menu written on chalkboards, and places one's order with someone behind the counter. While waiting in line it is necessary to stand by the bakery display case--quite a calorific temptation.
Order wine, beer or a non-alcoholic beverage at the counter; pour your own water and collect your plates and utensils at nearby stands and walk to a couple of indoor areas or a large, shaded patio to find your own table; a server will deliver your meal when it is ready.
It was a beautiful day so we chose the outdoor seating. The metal table and chairs were not particularly comfortable, but sitting under the huge shade tree was a pleasant experience.
We split a goat cheese pizza, which was large and good. There are some pizza places I have been to where I said "Must come back for another great pizza;" this is not one of those places. The pizza wasn't bad, just not great.
The rustic, stand-in-line, do-it-yourself shtick fits in well with the Western North Carolina mountain vibe; we will probably come here again next year to avoid the Apple Festival crowds in Hendersonville.
We had to fight not to succumb to the temptations of the many attractive bakery items; perhaps we will be tempted to try them some day, but even looking at them blows our daily calorie limit.
We give service a poor rating because we pretty much had to serve ourselves, get our own water and utensils, etc.

Basically lunch buffet but they do serve breakfast. Unfortunately, they use paper plates and plastic forks and spoons due to the lack of city sewer. Food is average but cheap.

Fresh local ingredients, many from our organic garden, combine with European inspired cuisine to create a delicious and healthful fine dining experience. The seasonal menu changes daily. Save room for the amazing Viennese deserts. Our dining room with its stunning mountain views is open to the public year round Fri & Sat nights, Thurs-Sun in summer, and anytime for parties of 6 or more. Complimentary hors d'oeuvres served from 6:30-7:30, while you enjoy the mountain views from the terrace or by the fire in winter.We have an excellent selection of wine, beer, and champagne - by the bottle or by the glass.Casual elegant attire required. Jackets for gentlemen suggested. Call for reservations.
A spectacular restaurant in the mountains. Any sybaritic epicurean will thoroughly enjoy the food and experience. Very highly recommended. Classy

Everything we’ve ever had from here is fabulous. We split an eclair for desert tonight. We were lucky to score the mandarin orange donut twists for in the morning. Whether you want chocolate, something delightfully lemony, an apple fritter, or cookies, pies, cakes, etc.....it’s here and worth dealing with the crowd to get!

Stopped for lunch on a recent weekend. Seating both inside and outside. Not much atmosphere inside. Food was very good, prices reasonable, portions were substantial, service friendly. A decent option in downtown Saluda.

Popular as a relaxed live music venue since 1998, The Purple Onion offers outdoor dining, a Mediterranean inspired menu featuring fresh, locally sourced ingredients, a wide selection of micro brews, fresh roasted coffee and a wine list featuring over sixty price friendly, sustainably produced wines.
After reading a billion reviews of restaurants in the Tryon area, we settled on the Purple Onion in Saluda. We were not disappointed. My daughter warmed up with some hot chocolate and my husband and I had the pimento cheese app. It wasn't amazing, but it was definitely good, and I appreciated that they put enough pita chips on the plate that we didn't run out of dippers after two bites. We all had small pizzas for dinner, and were all happy with them. The pepperoni seemed like it was fresh-cut from a big pepperoni log instead of taken out of a freezer, which was a bonus. We would definitely return, especially when it was warm enough to sit outside. Cute town.

We honor the rich Carolina BBQ tradition of low & slow but unlike many pits you won't find any Bubbas here. Though there is often confusion with our name, our pitmaster Starr Teel and Todd Mullin in the kitchen are both classically trained chefs. So remember, we're not Hubba Bubba, we're Hubba Hubba as in "Mmmm! Look at that brisket. HUBBA HUBBA!" Our menu features scratch made sauces and classic sides as well as unique seasonal sandwiches, soup, salad and even fish and shrimp on Fridays and Saturdays in summer. And we're ready for anything you can dream up so remember us for catering. We do much more than just b. Catering phone: 702-1301 Hubba Hubba is also a great gathering place. It's an informal place to bring a client for lunch, take a break from a busy day and a choice location for entertaining friends old and new at a catered event or let us cater offsite in Flat Rock or Hendersonville. We're open mid-March to just before Christmas. Check our website for hours.
Stopped on the way home from our mini-vacation in Asheville, NC. Outside seating only, so check the weather first. Very good BBQ. Sides were good also: baked beans, slaw, collard greens, corn bread, etc. Real wood smoked BBQ. Luckily I had cash because they don't take charge or debit cards. Watch for the sign, it sits behind another restaurant. Cool decor!

Kilwins offers chocolates, fudge, and ice cream, along with gifts.
We’ve visited many Kilwin’s at other locations and they are always great. The Hendersonville location didn’t disappoint. The staff was very friendly and the ice cream was delicious. Prices were a bit steep like they always are, but the quality is outstanding. Highly recommended when you’re looking for a sweet treat.
