Mike & I are lovers of great seafood. Being from South Carolina, we are use to taking quick trips to the beach for a delicious seafood meal or having those wonderful low country shrimp boils for a get-together with friends and family.
Since moving to the Inn, we have missed having a place to go to for a great seafood meal. The fried shrimp platters in local restaurants just don't quite hit the spot - even though they are good.
So we were delighted to find a fantastic seafood option that has started recently in our area. Niblicks Restaurant at The Clubs of Olde Mill is offering a delicious seafood buffet every second Saturday night. Seafood chowder, fresh salads, fruit and cheeses, smoked salmon, boiled shrimp, crab cakes, crab legs, salmon en croute, oysters on the half shell, prime rib and luscious desserts are just some of the offerings.
The food is worth the trip (an easy and scenic 40 minutes from the Inn) but coupled with the beautiful setting, it is a marvelous way to spend a Saturday evening. The Clubs of Olde Mill is a magnificent resort stretching over 800 acres of beautiful rolling hills, soft cool valleys, and a 54 acre lake with streams trailing all throughout the golf course. Niblicks Restaurant is located in a prime spot overlooking the lake and golf course with the mountains in the distance.
One of our guests, Peter from Canada, took these pictures when he and his wife dined at Niblicks.
So plan a trip to the Mountain Rose Inn and while here, save a night for a trip to Niblicks and enjoy some wonderful seafood!
