DINING

Our warm and inviting dining room offers both elegant and casual dining, as well as menus that make every meal memorable. Using fresh, local ingredients, let our chefs whip up something special for you, or visit one of Morganton’s many local restaurants.

What’s your food philosophy?

“Comfort and love. The ‘love’ comes from using only quality simple ingredients, prepared with care. The ‘comfort’ is found in traditional homestyle dishes, elevated to a new level. My goal at Grace Ridge is to deliver restaurant-quality food and service to each resident — because they deserve it.”

– Grace Ridge Executive Chef, Chris Lanza

“I’ve had the finest caviar in Russia, pheasant under glass in Paris, cheeseburger under a hubcap in Glen Alpine, but never had a better meal than tonight’s fried chicken drumsticks, fried green tomatoes, and fried okra. My compliments to the chef!” – Grace Ridge Resident

Ben Holland, Sous Chef

Café & Lounge

Residents and guests alike are enjoying the lighter, grab-and-go fare at our café and lounge.
