James at the Mill

Serving haute cuisine of the highest caliber, the James at the Mill restaurant blends traditional and contemporary American flavors with a touch of fine French cuisine to create tasty and innovative dishes. To sample a bit of everything, diners can opt for the tasting menu. This is made up of dishes such as seared diver scallops with spring asparagus risotto, pesto crusted halibut with olives and haricot vert, braised beef cheek agnolotii with red wine mirepoix sauce, and hickory-grilled quail on pork and roast garlic sausage with chive gnocchi.

Penguin Ed’s BBQ

An award-winning family-run restaurant, Penguin Ed’s BBQ has been feeding Fayetteville’s masses for the past 16 years and is still going strong. Using a slow hickory-enhanced method for smoking meats, Penguin Ed’s serves up a variety of barbecued meats. These include pulled pork, beef brisket, ham, Polish sausage and pulled chicken. The restaurant also has takeaway options.

Bordino’s Restaurant

For affordable fine food and an extensive wine list, Bordino’s Restaurant is one of Fayetteville’s most appealing restaurants. Dine here on a Monday to enjoy a three-course meal complete with wine in a special deal, or stop by on a Friday for signature cocktails during the night-long happy hour. A great choice for a celebration, the restaurant itself remains quiet while the bar is lively, especially during weekends.

Serving succulent steak and seasoned potato wedges on a thick wooden chopping board until late, and fruity cocktails until even later, Theo’s is as well-known for its bar as it is its dining room. Stop by during happy hour and enjoy a couple of the share plates while sipping a drink. Options include filet tip sliders, duck confit quesadilla, mussels and chorizo, slow-roasted pork shoulder and Thai shrimp, but the list goes on and on.
