4 Reasons Horsefeathers Roadhouse Rocks the House in Lake Norman

misc full platterSmartphone users have a real advantage when dining out. These days, anyone can take a sneak peek at an online restaurant menu here in the Lake Norman (LKN) region and decide if the menu is too small, too large, or, as an often-quoted children’s story character concludes in her porridge search, “Ahhh, this one is just right.”

Here at Horsefeathers Roadhouse in Sherrills Ford, North Carolina, we keep things “southern”, simple, and easy going when it comes to both food and entertainment. Our focus is squarely placed on hospitality and quality served up just right in a casual, inviting setting.

We believe that a North Carolina-style “just right” menu should focus on freshly made, down-home southern comfort foods along with the beer, wine and spirits most loved by the laid back Lake Norman crowd. Simply put, we offer exactly what the lake is all about. Horsefeathers Roadhouse LKN menu fits our casual atmosphere like a well-worn ball glove. Casual, fun, and definitely not boring!

Our patrons here at the lake have the flexibility to mix and match foods and drinks in order to create their favorite combinations for satisfying appetites that range from the light to the hearty.  We’re honored to provide that flexibility from opening to closing, year round!

Here are four MAJOR reasons that the best food and drink combos can be found right here at Horsefeathers Roadhouse in Lake Norman:

  • Innovation, not novelty: Fusion foods, small sample plates and odd, novelty ingredients might work elsewhere, but here at the HFR we stick with the tried and true. Mouth-watering appetizers, entrees and house fresh side dishes along with creative innovations are where we really shine. Our in-house cooker and smokehouse operation is the largest one in the Lake Norman Area. Have you tried our sizzling BBQ and other unique smokehouse specialties? If not, better late than never!
  • Authenticity instead of Star Trekky: Since HFR is in the heart of the South, only genuine southern foods work for us. Other restaurants may “boldly go where taste buds have never gone before,” but we’ll stick with a fresh bar menu featuring southern dishes that are regional favorites and draw people in from Statesville to Davidson.
  • Unlimited inspiration: Our well-balanced HFR menu has 10 main categories with plenty of mix and match choices in each of those categories. When it comes to creating the very best combos, we reach for the gold, and leave the bronze and silver awards to others. 
  • Easy, not fussy: Fancy squiggles of sauces and fussy arrangements of foods can slow down food preparation considerably in the kitchen. Our culinary team takes a more modest approach with a focus on getting the order out hot and on time. Dainty we are not! Blue collared, fresh, piled high and sauced up; that’s the way we roll!  

More than anything, our goal here at Horsefeathers Roadhouse Lake Norman is excellence. That includes our facility, entertainment, food service, extensive beer selections, and our all-important and expansive Carolina menu. The entire gang at HFR is passionate about serving the best food in the entire Piedmont. If you haven’t visited us as yet, please give us the pleasure of meeting you soon!
