Logan's Local Restaurant Guide

A Guide to Dining throughout the Piedmont Triad

High Point Market is right around the corner, and there is one aspect you cannot overlook on your visit – the food! After a long day visiting showrooms, there is nothing quite like sitting down and dining on the finest food in the Piedmont Triad. Part of the fun of Market is getting to taste incredible dishes. 

I’m Logan, director of buyer services at ANDMORE, and I’m happy to help you find the best eats in and around High Point. Whether this is your first time to Market, or you are trying to expand your High Point restaurant line up, my hand-picked selections are here to help you find the best option for your taste buds and budget!

High Point/Jamestown/Kernersville

While it is famously known as the hub of Market, nothing beats the Southern charm and atmosphere of High Point! After taking on the adventures of Market, there is nothing better than sitting back and enjoying conversation over a delicious meal.
From traditional establishments to Southern staples, there are a wide range of options in and around High Point. Other nearby cities that offer great bites include Jamestown and Kernersville —just a quick car ride away.

Best of all, you can enjoy wonderful southern hospitality and unique dining opportunities when you stay in High Point. Whether you need a cup of coffee and a quick bite, or you plan to share a three-course meal with friends, here are my favorite eateries in High Point and its immediate surroundings.

For those who are staying outside of High Point or want to explore other dining destinations away from Market, Greensboro is the perfect place. The third-most populated city in North Carolina, has a sprawling and historic downtown full of shops, art, and restaurants 

Part of what makes Greensboro a great dining hub is the range of upscale restaurants great forsharing on social, and one-of-a-kind establishments that are local to the area. Best of all, there is something suitable for every budget and group size. The walkability of the city makes it ideal for stopping for a bite and heading to a bar or brewery afterward.

Another charming and historic city, Winston-Salem rounds out the Piedmont Triad. Also known as Camel City, Winston-Salem is full of history, delightful shops, and plenty of outdoor sights and hikes. Its food scene is also out of this world!

As one of the South’sTop 10 Cities on the Rise,” there are many new and incredible restaurants opening each month, so even if you grab a bite and wander around, there is plenty to do on Fourth and Trade streets.If you are interested in visiting these amazing dining destinations, here are some of my favorites.
