When we walked in we were immediately greeted by Chef Megan welcoming us to JL and End Posts. The hostess then escorted us to the dining area which was a small, quaint room with just a handful of tables in it. The view outside was beautiful even on a rainy night. The rain kept us from exploring the grounds but didn’t prevent us from having a terrific meal with first class service. My wife and I were dining with another couple. The four of us had four servers assigned to the table. Each of them (Amber, Hali, Dana, and Justine) were friendly and professional in every way. Amber was the lead waitress and also had a great sense of humor about her. They offer multiple courses which we took advantage of and also paired our meals with a nice Massimo malbec. The four of which each ordered a different main course yet each of us walked about very pleased. I had the strip and it was well prepared. It is high quality food. We appreciated that after our meals and dessert that the head Chef Brian came out to the table to personally ensure that we had enjoyed the meals that he had prepared. A class move on his part. We assured him that the meals were outstanding and that we really enjoyed our dining experience thanks to the incredible wait staff. This is certainly about quality food over quantity and the meals aren’t cheap but you be happy you came. Great food, great views, and great service. We will be back, hopefully with better weather, so that we can take advantage of the full JOLO experience.

Does not disappoint
by PilotFoodie —
Truly a wonderful find. The wait staff treats you like royalty. The attention to the smallest detail is amazing. And then there is the food and the wine (order the Jolotage)... Expect to have a leisurely meal. It feels like you are at a friends house while they are cooking complicated gourmet dishes just for you. Everything is made from scratch using only the best ingredients. You will not feel rushed. This visit my wife enjoyed the cucumber gazpacho, fresh spring vegetables, and the roast chicken. I enjoyed sweet cornbread with tomatoes and onion relish, roast quail over sees corn, and smoked venison over steel cut oatmeal. What exceptional combinations of flavor. Looking forward to our next visit.

My review is in the title. Amazing dining experience...wonderful from start to finish! Our server Dana was extremely professional and provided us with a wonderful flow of serving and communicating, we were celebrating our wedding anniversary and she allowed us nice quiet moments throughout dinner. Overall a wonderful experience!

The food is excellent and the setting is beautiful. I had wild salmon cooked to perfection. My husband had New York strip that he described as tender and flavorful. I opted for a tomato salad, which had various varieties of tomatoes prepared in different ways-all were wonderful. All seats in the dining room have bright views of the outside-really lovely. The wait staff is very attentive and knowledgable. Be sure to take a short walk around the grounds before or after your meal.
I had lunch here and was completely overwhelmed with the setting and food quality. This is an extraordinary dining option in an area which has very limited choices. The dining room is very small, so reservations are a must for dinner. Right now they are not taking reservations for lunch. The lunch menu is limited but varied. Pricing at lunch is much more reasonable than dinner. I will go back!
We chose End Posts to celebrate our 35th anniversary, in part because they had an outstanding vegetarian menu. The service from our entering the door until our departure was superb, but the food and flavors were the stars of the show. Everything was prepared and presented with attention to detail and the mix of flavors. I had a roasted beet salad with small buttons of avocado mousse and orange gel. The beets were sprinkled with coarsely ground pistachios and the mix was phenomenal. There was only one vegetarian entree this evening, black-eyed pea ravioli served on a bed of summer succotash accompanied by a poached egg. The ravioli was perfectly prepared, partially wrapped with ample parmesan-reggiano flavoring. The succotash was finely diced summer squash and zucchini with whole black-eyed peas, chopped tomatoes, and just a touch of chili to raise the flavor to a higher level. The poached egg was a surprise but prepared perfectly and added new textures and flavors. All was topped with slightly crisped Swiss chard pieces, lightly salted. Just an amazing mix of flavors and textures. Bravo! Since we were celebrating our anniversary, the chefs sent a complimentary dessert of a buttermilk custard accompanied by two mini-muffins with almond and cinnamon flavors, and spots of strawberry reduction and fresh whipped cream. All was stunning!
The restaurant is small with limited seating, and the menu changes regularly but with limited offerings, but for my wife and I, this may have been the best meal of our lives. Highly, highly recommended for a special occasion."
"My husband and I would love to thank the staff at the End Post Restaurant @ JoLo Vineyards for making our experience so memorable! The staff truly knows what "Fine Dining" really means!!! Showing their passion on attention to detail and attentiveness to each and every one of their guests is #1. Chef Brian, is absolutely creative! Explosives flavors, and seasonings that continues to build with each cuisines that is served!!! We had the privilege to visit JoLo Vineyards the day before the Grand Opening about a month or so ago and was warmly welcomed by Chef Brian and Megan... they gave us a short tour of JOLO Vineyards and the End Post Restaurant and explained the vision on what guests will be experiencing. With this said, We told them we will be back!!! And here we are.... Everything they said about the vision of JOLO and End Post Restaurant is more than what was said and more than what we expected. It was & is a Spectacular and Mind Blowing Experience that far exceeded our expectations!!! Also, we were honored and privileged to meet the owners JW and his beautiful wife, Kristen. What an amazing couple with their welcoming and warm composure!!! Your vision will simply exceed all guests expectations. Again, Congratulations on your 27th Wedding Anniversary!!!
Thank you again for making this a Beautiful, Spectacular and Mind Blowing experience for us!! We will be back again!!!

“Wonderful dinner last night. How marvelous to find a chef who can create a great vegetarian meal closer than Asheville! We have dined as far south as New Zealand, as far north as Rekjavik, as far east as Siberia, and as far west as Hawaii. We have never had a more delightful dining experience...although True Food in Scottsdale, AZ came close. (then there was this great place in the Czech Republic where we had lentils simmered in summer wine and drank meade.) Bravo Megan! Nice job JW.”

This restaurant is at the Jolo Winery and like the winery, it is FIRST CLASS. The wait staff are in white gloves, service is over the top, the Chef is great. The kitchen is open to where you can watch food preparation take place. The menu is limited but the choices are great. I had the ribeye, my wife had the halibut( which is her all time favorite ) and I can say all the food was great. There is a good wine selection. The food was cooked perfect. The dining room is very comfy, although small it allows for the service and kitchen not to be over worked. Since it is small you should make reservations because they do fill up and sell out for the evening. They do also have outdoor dining which we prefer but due to rain we sat inside. Again JW the owner has left nothing out or to chance. This is one of the BEST RESTAURANTS IN NC. Can not wait to go back and sit outside. Please do your self a favor and go and enjoy.
After reviewing the website and menu, we knew the prices were above our usual night out. Since we were celebrating a birthday, we decided it was worth a first try. What we did not expect was the superb service that accompanied the delicious food. The menu is limited but everything we had was exceptional. Extra touches included a complimentary dessert for the birthday girl and a thank-you treat of chef-made shortbread cookies in a take-home bag. Wow. We are thinking of creating another special occasion just so ewe can return soon!
