Come to the Kitchen and celebrate good food.

chicken and waffles

Locally sourced, seasonal ingredients. Creative comfort eats. A place to wind down and savor life, family and friends. That’s what Dean’s Kitchen+Bar is all about.

New seasons bring new flavors, and our summer menu features an abundance of fresh local fruits and vegetables. Enjoy one of our seasonally inspired lunch or dinner entrees, or choose to build your own plate the way you like it. No matter what you choose, you’re sure to get a taste of NC in every dish. Our culinary team works with farmers and purveyors from the NC mountains to the coast to source the freshest, tastiest dairy, fruits, vegetables, meats and more. These local ingredients are then crafted into delicious appetizers, salads and entrees made in house and from scratch. Let’s not forget our refreshing craft cocktails featuring local NC spirits from Chapel Hill, King’s Mountain, Raleigh and Jacksonville. Heck, even our after dinner mints are from Boone. Eat local. Drink local. Love local.

Want a taste of what to expect? Made-to-order sweet potato biscuits with NC country ham, pimento cheese and homemade jam. North Carolina oysters, shrimp and mountain trout. Summer bruschetta, roasted corn risotto cakes and watermelon panzanella salad. NC pork porterhouse, chicken & sweet potato waffle, fish tacos and house ground burgers. And that’s just the beginning — there’s plenty more where that came from. Come to the Kitchen and celebrate good food.
