We've been here twice...and we love it! The views are breathtaking (you don't realize it until you actually go inside). The food is excellent too...very nice blend of upscale and straight up delicious food. We've both had seafood during both trips, and it did not disappoint!

It was Valentines, and we wanted to beat the crowd. I called ahead, to make sure they would be open in the afternoon. Certainly, I was told. I also checked on a dish they were out of the last time I was there. We drove from two towns away, and when we arrived, there was a "Closed" sign on the... More

Located within walking distance from The Skyway Village Inn and just off the Blue Ridge Parkway lies a unique gem for the area. From the outside it might appear to be an average small town restaurant.. but once inside the decor, view and aromas quickly tell a different story. Polite and fast service it is a location that can fill... More

Wonderful menu selection and cocktail selection. View is incredible, especially in warm weather, when porch dining is possible.

Go for the view and not the food or drinks!! They had no turkey to top the ‘turkey salad’ my husband ordered so the waitress offered chicken instead. That was fine. I ordered a mixed drink which was tasteless. My steak and cheese sandwich was way too salty. Then when the bill came I asked what the extra $4.00 was... More

Great wholesome food with terrific panoramic view. We were there on a chilly, windy fall day and all you could do on the patio was take pictures. I was thrilled that when I made my reservation I requested indoors, because the patio was closed due to weather. We could still enjoy the view from our table on the next room... More

The view from the restaurant was spectacular and the food was good also. We would definitely recommend this to anyone in the area. You should make it up there. It's worth the drive.

We dined at the Mountain View this past weekend, along with everyone else in NC! But not to worry, it was worth the wait. We wanted to be seated on the deck so we could immerse ourselves in the fabulous view. Food was good and waitress was great! I ordered a turkey salad sandwich.....could have been more turkey salad on... More

Our sole reason for our visit was to have a drink and watch the sunset with a 360 view of the mountains. The view was beyond gorgeous. We didn't eat so I cannot give a review about food. My cocktail was not very well mixed and was a too strong, but that is easily forgivable. If we adventure back to... More
