I recently ate at the Moose Cafe at the Asheville Farmer s Market; it was a big disappointment. The service was great but the food was over cooked and underseasoned. I would not recommend eating here.
I have lived in NC all my life and this is just bad cooking.
New Moose Cafe in Colfax, Nc. is actually located in the Farmers Market in Greensboro, NC. Went there last night for supper. It was a disaster. We were only people eating, that should have been my first clue. There was 4 of us, the waitress brought 2 biscuits, I asked if they had honey, she said yes, came back with sorgum, no honey. I ordered chicken casserole, she came back, out of that. I could only eat that as I am allergic to MSG, every thing else had MSG in the food. I ordered Blackberry cobbler, it comes with ice cream, she brought it with whipped cream on both sides, they were out of ice cream, however, she said we can make you some fried ice cream, doesn't it take ice cream to make fried ice cream, duh. The Blackberry cobbler was supposed to be cooking, so for sure this was left over from the day before. Only one person at the table got any food, and they boxed it, and left. I can truly say, DON'T EAT THERE, WHATEVER YOU DO.
What can I not say about the Moose Cafe! This place was awesome. The atmosphere was very lodge like (i.e wood paneling, Mason jars, canned vegetables), but this was the best place we ate at the entire time in Asheville.
The service was quick and EVERYBODY was so nice. My boyfriend and I ate here 2 days in a row and we were only in Asheville for 3 days. The portions are MASSIVE. I've been known to take down 2 plates in one sitting at some restaurants, but I couldn't get through a half a plate here. Biscuits come with EVERYTHING and they are melt in your mouth good.
One of my waiters was completely honest with me about the food and when I told him I couldn't decide on what to get, he bought me out samples. The chicken and dumplings were so good that my boyfriend, who likes nothing with gravy, actually liked it. Our meals were less than $20 for the both of us and I took food back to the hotel at each sitting. Even on a busy night, there was not a long wait nor did we feel like we were being ignored. I would eat here everytime I went to Asheville--if I was ever going back. They need one in Charlotte, NC!
I can't praise this place enough!! The food was beyond good and made from scratch. The value and the amount of food is excellent. Fast and friendly service. It was one of the best meals we had while in Asheville. Can't wait to go back again. You will NOT leave hungry!!
Definitely a down home country restaurant. Location is convenient, right off the interstate. The biscuits were really good ... moist, flaky, and hot. The Fried Chicken Breast with Gravy was amazing! Turnips, green beans, pinto beans, and apples were all good. B-B-Q Pork was good as well. Would surely recommend this place for someone looking for a good Southern meal!
