The best meals on the Blue Ridge Parkway are served here. Expect a wait, but so worth it. We went there three times over the course of 2 days. It was so good we wanted to try several things on the menu after the first visit and were not disappointed.

My husband and I had planned a spring trip, to drive the second half of the Blue Ridge Parkway from Roanoke, VA down to Cherokee, NC. I had been to Mabry Mills years ago when I was a kid but I never remembered it being as beautiful as it was in April. The day my husband and I stopped, all... More

This is a very pleasant and informative stop on the parkway. Great place to stop with the kids or just to get out of the car for a short walk.

As well as watching the mill working a short walk around the rest of the site gives you an insight into how people lived and survived in the early days, with working... More

Stopped at Mabry Mill and was pleasantly surprised. It is a beautiful place to walk around, take pictures, and learn about the mill. We were greeted by Noel at the mill who showed us a buckwheat plant just outside the door (I would have never known) as well as described how it would be ground into buckwheat flour. Very interesting... More

Mabry Mill is one of those places that make you instantly feel the stress disappear. A relaxing walk through history, with demonstrations of crafts and a beautiful mill where you can buy Mabry Mill buckwheat flour as well as grits. The scenery is breathtaking and perfect for tripod family shots. Despite the amount of visitors, it is well kept and... More

very carefully and thoughtful historic display of the "ancient" settlers. Very interesting. A must see for kids to show them how people lived and worked for there bare existence. Boardwalk from one exhibit to the next. Especially the mill is worth a trip.

Perfect for young and old, all year ( though the restaurant is closed in winter) there is something beautiful to see. Great place to stop and stretch when cruising the parkway.

We drove up from Fancy Gap to eat at the nearby restaurant and visit the mill. It was like walking back in time. The boardwall was especially nice. The mill was very well preserved and worth the trip.
