We stopped for lunch just a few days before they closed for the season November 1st. We had the lunch special of tomato soup and a grilled palmetto sandwich which was very good and a glass of ice tea. Service was very good too. The only thing I could criticize is the building is in need of some TLC as... More

Stopped for lunch after visiting Mt. Mitchell. Wait was about a half hour, staff friendly. The gift shop was limited. I had a grilled chicken sandwich with fried okra. My husband had a hamburger with French fries and we shared the peach cobbler. Overall the food was good and the view from our table beautiful.

We drove up to see the early fall colors and the scenery was gorgeous. The restaurant is a great place to enjoy reliable American food. Today we had hamburger steak, French dip, Philly cheese steak, vinegar-finished collard greens, and chicken noodle soup. Gourmet it's not, but satisfying and reasonably priced.

It was a nice "extra" on our visit to see the vistas high atop Mt. Mitchell (elev. 6,683′) to have lunch. The food is hot and tasty. I had the mountain trout which was very good. The views are gorgeous. It was good.

We stopped in for lunch over the Labor Day weekend, and we were very pleased with the food and service. My wife and I had burgers with fries, my daughter had the grilled cheese with soup. We enjoyed our meal and got a window seat, wow what a view. The service was great even though they were slammed.

Outside eating porch area with a great view. Menu includes appetizers, salads, sandwiches and more. I had the blackened chicken greek salad with homemade delicious dressing, my husband had a burger with potato salad and chicken wings. Servers were very attentive. I'd go back for sure. The only drawback is parking is limited, so you may have to park and... More

Driving on 80 West, got hungry and this was the only place off the Blue Ridge Parkway. Nice place, clean, friendly staff. Had the french dip sandwich and fries - very good for a 'park' restaurant and at $10 not badly priced. My husband had a grilled chicken salad which was on the small side for $10 but tasted good,...

Love going to this place to eat when we visit. It changes over the years, not quite the place now as it was a while back. Seems to be some wasted room they could take advantage of for more seating, but it's still great. The servers are wonderful and friendly.

We typically stop at this restaurant when we are on the parkway. I believe, the restaurant is leased, as we were told on one of our first stops. This is the first time we stopped for breakfast. 3 choices for the breakfast menu ( eggs or pancakes with sides, or egg sandwich with something). $6.99 for the sandwich and $7.99... More

The views....just go!!!!! The food was good and priced right. Staff was excellent despite us arriving 30 mins before close. Don't judge I have two kids. Food: had mountain trout and delicious. Kids had chicken tenders and liked them. Collards and coleslaw was on point and delicious. I would definitely return!!!
