The Inn on Church - Hendersonville, NC

I suppose this is what you would call a mixed review.

We had an early dinner at the Inn on Church this Saturday. We finally succumbed to the advertising of "orgainic produce, hormone-free meats, artisan breads and cheese and Amish butter"

The porch was really nice, I wish it had been warmer so we could have eaten outside, but the interior was pleasant as well. Our waiter was friendly and competent, but note to waiter: never say "veg".

Fried Calamari app. Greasy and salty. a bad start.

Bread not great, olive oil (where's my amish butter?) not great either.

Waiter brought me two Sauv Blancs to sample (points!) and the New Zealand was very nice.

My entree: Prawns w/ linguini in caper wine sauce with "heirloom tomatoes". The giant shrimp were really good, and perfectly cooked. Major points here. The linguini was not greasy and reasonably good. On the sides of the plate were some steamed green beens, carrots and a half japanese eggplant. Points for that, too.

Husband's entree: Very bad petite fillet. Not cooked rare, meally and tasteless. Topped with pieces of lobster that were OK and had an OK sauce on them. It has always been my opinion that anyplace that serves any kind of sauce w/ steak is about to give you a POS steak, and my opinion is only reinforced here.

My pasta was $24, which seems a little high for 4 shrimp and some pasta, and Jeff's steak was a travesty at $28.

So...I might try it again for lunch sometime, but for dinner, it's not worth the prices.
