Went here for lunch after zip lining. Food was delicious and they have tons of desserts! I had the peanut butter pie and it was amazing! The service was a little slow, but I tend to expect that in the south.

Enjoyed a very nice lunch on the patio at the Purple Onion last week. The menu selections are varied and unique and the desserts are wonderful! Our waiter was friendly and helpful without being a pest. Downtown Saluda is a nice place to spend some time on a summer day.

First visit. We had the most delicious lunch! The service was wonderful. Sitting on the patio was great. Can't wait to go back.

Excellent food and service. Always a pleasure to eat at the Purple Onion. My tomato basil soup was rich and creamy. The turkey sandwich had avocado and the best cheese! We were there today for lunch. We try to go frequently for dinner, especially when there is live music. This is one of our favorite places to eat!

Wonderful evening of great food, super craft beers, excellent service, and live music! All at a reasonable price. Lively atmosphere in a comfortable setting. Wife had flash-fried catfish with stone-ground grits. I had fettuccine with a wonderful tomato sauce and shrimp. Both were superb. Highly recommend.
