Housed in a turn of the century bank-style barn located in the center of our Farmstead, the James Beard Award-winning restaurant offers multi-course menus of our Foothills Cuisine which is rooted in our Appalachian ingredients from around the region as well as farm products harvested just a few feet from the front door. Alongside the antique-style linens, custom chairs, and sterling silver is a style of cuisine that is more formed and delicate, and expresses the essence of our food from the farm and south, though not necessarily “southern food.” Complementing the cuisine is our James Beard and Wine Spectator Award winning wine program with more than 9,000 different selections housed in the Barn Wine Cellar. The Barn’s Bar program also boasts an impressive spirits list with over 300 Whiskies and Brandies available many of which are simply unattainable outside of Blackberry Farm.
Situated within the Main House, The Dogwood features a menu as dynamic as the veranda views of the farm and Smoky Mountains that extend beyond its bar and dining room. Inspired by that remarkable location, but open to creative interpretations and flavors, the Dogwood’s well-crafted cuisine is characterized by an eclectic perspective expressed through diverse dishes and fare. Seasonal menus are served in an intimate environment that is at once elegant and comfortable, with engaging guest experiences like passed small bites, shared plates and an ever-changing sideboard of classic farmstead desserts. Complementing this memorable cuisine, The Dogwood’s beverage program features a curated list of small production wine and beer and an exclusive assortment of inventive cocktails, unique whiskeys and American brandies.
