Binion's Roadhouse

Reviewed By VacationMom69 - Ware Shoals, South Carolina

My husband and I drove a hour and a half to spend the our anniversary day in beautiful Hendersonville, North Carolina. Binion's was the restaurant we chose for anniversary dinner. We was seat immediately. Our server, Cassidy, was extremely friendly and helpful. She came back multiple times to refill our drinks and ask if everything was ok or if we needed anything. We had accidentally left our to go box on the table and when my husband remembered it and started back to get it, Cassidy was already at the door with it to bring it to us. The service is great, friendly, and they go that extra step to insure you have a enjoyable experience. The food was great. The prices were great. We will definitely be returning. Thank you Binions for making our anniversary complete.

Postero

Reviewed By Anne M - Hendersonville, North Carolina

My husband and I enjoyed a wonderful Valentine’s Day lunch at Postero. Elizabeth was our server who quickly brought us cocktails and before we knew it our entrees arrived. My husband enjoyed his Macaroni and Cheese. My Burger came with a large Kale Salad. I thought I would be taking a lot of it home, but both the Burger and the Salad were delicious, and I ate every bite!

We sat up in the loft area, against the floor to ceiling windows. It was quieter and more restaurant like, instead of bar/pizza place atmosphere. I had GF Moroccan pork chop [ at least 8 oz] and a wonderful sweet sauce [$17]. It came with mashed potatoes. My wife had Scottish SALMON, cooked perfectly. [$18]. One Italian pinot noir[$7], and the house special gin/mint/strawberry smash [$10].Trendy...

Two for lunch during the week. Not crowded, so we picked the sushi bar. The little app from the sushi chef was a nice start. We chose a 3-roll lunch and a Bento box with tempura. Fish were fresh and very tasty. Tempura very light and crisp. Round it out with green tea (excellent) and a Sapporo (ditto). We'll be back.

Flat Rock Wood Room

Our restaurant prepares award winning barbecue meats and gourmet wood fired brick oven pizzas. With a state of the art smoker, Flat Rock Wood Room smokes pork, brisket, and chicken which are used to create our appetizing sandwiches. Our barbecue restaurant does not stop there, we also create one of a kind entrees such as pulled pork platters, St. Louis full rack rib platters, smoked 1/2 chicken platters, and brisket patters, just to mention a few. Maybe BBQ is not what you crave, no problem, we also specialize in wood fired oven pizzas. With our Neapolitan pizza oven we are sure to please the most discriminating taste buds serving our flavorful pizzas.

TIP: Dandelion can be quite busy - especially if you have a group of more than four. In that case, set your expectations such that a wait is acceptable to you. They will accept a reservation in rare cases with larger (like eight or more)...MoreThank you for not only coming in but for taking time to write a review.

Never Blue

Never Blue is a non-traditional tapas restaurant. The word Tapas translates to small or little bites. We offer small plates of a variety of cuisines from around the world and also offer entree portions of some items. We have an extensive list of vegetarian and gluten free items, as well as soups, salads, sandwiches, chicken dishes, beef & wild game, seafood and much more. We have a wonderful dessert selection that we make in-house along with all of our ice creams and sorbets. We have full ABC Permits and offer an amazing martini and margarita list. We have 12 local beers on draft, and a very inexpensive yet diverse wine list. We have an inviting dining room along with garden dining in our enclosed garage and outdoor patio dining as well. We are open Tuesday-Saturday- 11:30 am to 9:00 pm for lunch and dinner Sunday & Monday - Closed.

Since our last visit from way out of town, they changed to a Tapas menu which we were looking forward to enjoying. Having eaten there a few times while visiting family & friends, we were expecting a great experience. We went there on a Saturday night without reservations but the hostess & manager greeted us with welcoming smiles and put us on a short waiting list. We were seated and our experience went downhill from there. The waitress greeted us with a friendly smile and spent some time reinforcing that there would be NO substitutions. We have dined around the world in both upscale & family type establishments which provide reasonable accommodation for food sensitivities and likes. We didn’t even have a chance to ask as the announcement was part of the greeting. Do to our sensitivities & dislikes, we choose some items that were acceptable. They were very good and we enjoyed them. Dessert was a problem for the dish that we wanted had a topping that the busser said could be omitted but our server Re emphasized NO modifications! Thus we choose another one that took 20 min to prepare and was very good. We reordered another glass of wine for the wait. However when we got it, the wine tasted very different from what we expected. However, in keeping with the constant service level, we were told we got what we ordered and the waitress even brought us a bottle as an exhibit to support her position. She would not entertain the fact we might be right.

As we left the restaurant, I looked for the friendly manager but she was not in site so we just left. The food was good and would recommend the food. The service was not enjoyable.

We stopped in for lunch. Three of us had Ruben and Rye which was wonderful with lean corned beef and wonderful sauerkraut and thousand island dressing. Another person had the roast beef special with horseradish sauce and au jus and he stated it was excellent.

Papa's & Beer

Reviewed By Nathan S

I ordered their skillet fajitas. Order came out so burnt it was inedible. The shrimp on the top of the steak, and chicken so burnt on it had to be pried off also tasted burned. Now that was bad but not the worst part. The waiter called the manager Brenda over to look at the charred meal. Still can’t believe what she said ...“it a skillet burn”. She promptly walked away never to be seen again. Not my first skillet fajita but will be my last meal at this horrible restaurant. With so many options don’t make this a special occasion. Worst meal ever!!
