4/5 Good

The Umstead is a very beautiful property. However, I was very underwhelmed by the food experience. If you’re able to get a reservation and have at least 2-3 hours to kill, I hear Heron is good...but unfortunately I was unable to get a seat. The food in the lobby bar was not good at all...the menu was limited and restricted to a small area. I had the soba noodles with grilled shrimp, not good, the chicken, dry and not good and the lobster roll, how do you mess up a lobster roll? Not good. The property is way to nice to offer such a bad food experience. I actually ordered take out at Ruth Chris up the street and it was excellent.

Always a treat - relaxing getaway. No need to leave the property to dine. Pool cabanas & spa provide ample entertainment opportunities. Incredibly friendly & efficient staff. Definitely a must.
