The Yancey House

I recently had the pleasure to shoot and eat at the Yancey House Restaurant in Yanceyville, North Carolina. Owners Michael and Lucindy Willis operate a wonderful establishment in a beautiful Victorian house that was the home of Bartlett Yancey, US Congressman and UNC Trustee, and the namesake for Yanceyville. The hospitality is exceptional and the food is to die for. Loved the sea bass and the crab cakes. For more info, go to

Lucindy is a retired English professor and does all the cooking.

  1. I envy you! I love southern cooking. LA just doesn’t have any good restaurants. I am really enjoying your blog because I have a deep affinity for the South. I am sold! I will keep coming back to read more!
