Excited about Eating by Ernie Hiers

This week's edition of Excited about Eating visits Restaurant X in the college town of Davidson, North Carolina. This bistro-type restaurant offers an international menu featuring pub fare, seafood, and upscale beef dishes.

Dora here. It's easy to see why they've been nominated six times for the Open Table Diners Choice Award (click link for reservations). Food choices were great, but they also offer several seating alternatives. We chose the covered patio. The plastic screen makes it nice and toasty for winter diners. 

We visited on Saturday during Brunch, so I chose Shepherd’s Pie, meat, vegetables, and gravy blanketed with mashed potatoes. We visit a lot of pubs and I have ordered Shepherd’s Pie many times, but I have to say, this was the best ever! The meat and gravy, with deep flavors and just the right amount of juice, blended very well with the mashed potatoes. It was the type of dish that you just couldn’t stop eating until it was all gone, and that happened quicker than usual because my wife enjoyed it also.

Dora here. Guilty! I confess my fork kept digging in to that wonderful goodness! I was powerless to control it. The flavors popped and it wasn't overloaded with unnecessary vegies like some. Warm and perfect for a cold day!
Fish & Chips

Good thing you also enjoy Fish and Chips, Ernie. Phew! And the fries were just the way hubby likes them, thin and crispy, the kind you can gobble down a ton and not feel heavy or bloated afterward. The fish batter was nice and light, not greasy, with generous portions.

Restaurant X is located on Main Street, along with many other quaint local restaurants. It's a beautiful area, one I imagine we will explore more fully soon. 


Not sure how they chose Restaurant X for their name. What's the most unique named restaurant you frequent?


We rate this restaurant 5 fork out of 5 for a family friendly restaurant serving outstanding food.

I can see why you couldn't resist digging your fork into Ernie's pie, Dora. Although those fish and chips looks wonderful.

It was an equal share opportunity. I'm sure the server thought we were weird, eating from one plate first and then the other. But everything was soooo good. :)

Jill, it was great although I am not sure it was an equal share, but it went fast.
