Zuma Coffee

Love Zuma, especially for Wednesday Open Mike night, followed by great live music on Thursday nights. It has the feel of a favorite local gathering place, I always look forward to going there when we are vacationing in Hot Springs.

Stack House

Great neighborhood restaurant. Mika was a great waiter. We arrived with party of 5 and a busy night but enjoyed drinks while table came available. Pisgah burger was cooked perfectly and everyone in our party loved their dishes. Definitely will be back

Star Diner

Reviewed By KenCookie - Asheville, North Carolina

We can’t stop going back to The Star Diner because each meal seems better than the last. In the past two weeks, we’ve eaten there twice—once for a friend’s birthday celebration and once with friends who have eaten there before. This is a small white tablecloth establishment—which makes it on the “fancy” side; however, the wait staff is the opposite of snobby.

Brian, the chef, is fabulous. The dishes we have especially enjoyed included… For appetizers: Caesar salad—delicious and presented beautifully; crispy fried oysters—enough to satisfy; almond crusted fried brie; smoked trout and almond pate. For dinner: steak medallions with wild mushrooms, mashed potatoes, and asparagus; Southern fried chicken saltimbocca; pan-fried scallops with a white cheddar grit cake. For dessert: lemon curd tart.

FYI, the décor is wonderful; be sure to check the bathroom.

Happy Cinco de Mayo

Reviewed By Linda T - Lexington, Kentucky, United States

I've been through this area for years on my way to/from kayaking the river, but I somehow missed this great restaurant. Our group stopped in to give it a try and were extremely satisfied. Our GPS would have gotten us lost, but we followed the road signs and easily found it. The building is very nice. I'm not sure about a previous review stating it was a "to go" place. This restaurant is large with tons of seating, a separate bar area, and outdoor seating as well. Our waiter was the most pleasant waiter I've had in a long time. Very polite, courteous, and efficient. The food was good, the portions were sizable, and the price was reasonable. We will definitely return on our next trip to the river. It's easily the kind of place that could become our group's must eat place after boating.

Momma's Kitchen

Reviewed By FrynPan - Eaton Rapids, Michigan

Whether you live here or just traveling through, you won't find any better example of North Carolina cooking and hospitality than Momma's Kitchen. This should be a must stop destination for food if you are in the area. But note: this is breakfast/lunch only, 7am - 3pm Mon. - Fri.
There were four of us, each with a different order. All meals were finger lick'n good and big enough to more than share, We left stuffed.
Prices were very reasonable considering the quality and quantity of food served.
Momma and her helper were as friendly and courteous as you could ask for.
The decor both inside and out totally reflected the "down home in the hills" feeling of the restaurant. And many locally made items were for sale in the restaurant.
If your destination is Hot Springs, don't miss a meal at Momma's Kitchen.

Madison County Brewing Company

Reviewed By Joyce O - Henderson

A great group of people have made a terrific place in downtown Marshall. From Jamie the bartender to the brew master Mad Co Brewing is just the right combination of old time architecture and friendly atmosphere to become one of my favorite places. I enjoy sampling their latest batch while munching on a brat or a slice of delicious pizza. Music is also a part of the scene, you can find artist playing on the Main Street patio most weekend nights. The back roof top patio has a great view of the French Broad River and the railroad tracks just feet away add excitement with their passing trains. All and all a great place to get together for a fun night and a brew or two.

Reviewed By David S - Asheville, North Carolina

I have eaten at Marshalls Main Street Cafe nearly everyday for the last month. I have eaten here for breakfast and lunch. The food is delicious and the service is top notch. It is close to the office and the girls bring my order over to me, if I don't get back before it is ready. That is AAA+ service. The gravy and biscuits with sausage and eggs yummy. Lunch I usually get chicken strips and fries.

This place is down the road from my work. I've never tried it until now. I've been there twice this week! Friendly people and great food. You walk to the counter in the back and place your order and they call your number when it's ready. Awesome onion rings and tater tots also! Cheap prices also.

Good Stuff

Reviewed By psl126 - Atlanta, Ga

Stopped for lunch after rafting on a Wednesday afternoon.
Only 1 other couple in there. We really could not get the flavor of the restaurant. We had a nice time playing pool while waiting for food. Our burger and fried green tomato sandwich was good. Just came with chips, fries extra cost, which made the sandwiches kind of pricey. Waitress had no personality nor did she check to see if the food order was good. She spent her time out back smoking so was not too available for service.
