Don't let the outside fool you

My wife picked the Jackalope View and when I pulled up the pictures I was expecting a ski bar, but to my surprise it was upscale food with an amazing view.

Their breakfast is all we've had here and it is excellent! Nice service, but not excellent service. I guess it's according to which server you get. But has a beautiful view located on the edge or cliff of the mountain. You can see Sugar mountain from view. Really nice Inn also. We stayed here couple of times. They could use... More

The shrimp and grits were amazing. The service was great. The food took a little time to get out, but nothing too crazy. The view alone was worth the trip.

The view is spectacular. Even if the sun has gone down its great. Our waiter, Kevin, on both our visits has been exceptional. Very knowledgeable and entertaining. Vicky the bartender upstairs with the wonderful bar with pool tables was great & made us some delicious after dinner cocktails. Have plans to return. Great!

Great way to end a day of skiing. A really special spot we look forward to everytime. The "chicken and dumplings" and skirt steak with bacon jam were both phenomenal. And Richard was knowledgeable and enthusiastic about everything, adding to a great experience.

The service was bad. The waiter abandoned us. The chef took another table order in front of ours so we waited 2 hrs to eat mediocre food.

We had dinner new years eve. Food was excellent. The sauce from the shrimp and grits was possibly the best I've had. The bartender, I think her name was Vicki was very friendly and attentive. She went out of her way to help us with an issue in our room.

We enjoyed the convenience of this being right next to our lodge and were pleased in general. Only 1 wait staff for the whole restaurant lets you know they don't expect to be busy and it wasn't. Good upscale dining in a casual setting.

my wife and I stumbled upon this as we drove a couple miles up the road from our B&B Banner Haven on our way to Beech Mt. We stopped because of the view and were pleasantly paid back...It only had 3 tables being served at sunset, and we were given a window seat overlooking the valley...After taking our wine order,...

Beautiful views from any table, try to book your reservation before dark. The food is excellent, really. Try some of the NC wines that they'll recommend, they were a pleasant surprise. The service is amateurish, but they're friendly and they're trying. I wouldn't let that hold you back, all in all it's worth a trip up the mountain to eat... More
