Located on Highway 321 in Blowing Rock, Foggy Rock is a locals favorite. Food is excellent with a varied menu. Service is generally good, and the bar tenders really know what they are doing. Great beer selection on tap too.

I had seen reviews of this place and hoped for good things. It didn't disappoint. The range of choice on the menu was really good and while my friend had the catfish slider (yum apparently), I had the Kick Earth salad (I think that was what it was called) . Was trying to get away from fried food for a... More

We've been to Blowing Rock a lot but have never eaten at Foggy Rock because it's been so crowded. It wasn't crowded this afternoon so we tried it. I'm glad we did. I had their special soup - it was mushroom artichoke soup. It's homemade soup, reminded me of the soup my mother used to made. It was excellent. Then... More

Went here with 5 other ladies for lunch on a Saturday. Everyone enjoyed their meal, especially the chili and the eggrolls. The service was quick, efficient, and friendly.

My family and I spent a week in Blowing Rock, NC and we ate there 3 times because everyone wanted to eat the food from here. It is right on the main highway and the food is delicious. I recommend it.

Server Ashley was excellent. Avocado Black Bean spring rolls sounded too weird for is but we tried them and were glad we did. They would be better with a Lighter Thai style wrapper as the egg roll wrapper is tough and uninteresting. The filling is actually delicious and worth trying. Wings had a batter type costing which overwhelmed and resulted... More

Crowded place filled what appeared to be a mix of locals and visitors. Interesting mix of flavors among the menu items. Generous portions. The small side salads are huge and delicious. We had the Grandfather Mtn fried chicken with Mac& cheese and yummy cornbread. Excellent meal.

We spent the weekend in the Blowing Rock area for a music festival. We have eaten at the Foggy Rock before and were pleased that it remains very good. The trout three ways is excellent. We ate at the bar because it was a busy night, but enjoyed the company of the bartender and some fellow diners. We will definitely... More

The food was delicious and fresh, the restaurant was quaint, just what you would expect in the mountains. The service was excellent, we were there a little after the lunch crowd. I look forward to eating there again.

Genuine mountain cafe with a creative menu. Nice selection of salads, sandwiches, and entrees each with a flair. Great burger, and bang bang shrimp tacos with homemade pimento cheese appetizer.
