Trip to Grandfather Mountain

Breakfast is very good! We didn't eat dinner here. We really enjoyed staying at the Inn as it was cozy and quaint. You can hear the traffic but it didn't take away from our enjoyment.

My wife and I went to Jackalope's View to have a nice dinner out. I should have turned around and left on arriving. We pulled into the parking area, which was across from a utility shed, and found the lot littered with trash, a hose stretched across the lot and holes in the walkway. It looked very neglected and unkept.... More

We travel to Beech Mountain every year and usually dine at Jackalope's VIew once. The service and view were great as ever, but the quality of the food has suffered tremendously. The crab cake was so salty, it was almost inedible. The beef tenderloin was thin and overcooked. The couple behind us and another couple 2 tables down from us... More

We sat on the back deck & the view was beautiful. However, the rest of the experience was lacking. Most importantly the service was mediocre for the price of the meal. Cats and dogs wandered around the deck area constantly coming close to all guests and at one point jumped in chair to try a guests salad. Meal wasn't as... More

To start, the view is one of the best restaurant views you will find in the High Country. Driving up to the place I wasn't sure we were in the right place since it is a bit dated looking on the outside with a dirt parking lot. The good - I had the scallops and they were excellent, my wife... More

My wife and I have been here twice and have enjoyed our meals both times. If you enjoy seafood, be sure to get the lump crab cake for an appetizer or dinner. It was pure bliss. I ordered elk the first time and loved it. That's not a regular menu item, but they sometimes have seasonal exotic fare. The duck... More

We've eaten here every summer/winter for the past 15 years, and tonight's meal was really the best we've ever had at Jackalope's. Apparently they have a new chef, and all of our courses were fantastic. The spinach artichoke dip was the perfect ratio of veggies to cream/cheese (not too creamy) and the escargot was served out of the shell in... More

Six of us had dinner there tonight. Two ordered their short ribs which were tough and dry. One ordered the pork chop which was tough. The crispy duck was not crispy and almost raw. The two salmon orders were so so. Food was definitely overpriced. Waiter never asked about dessert and emphasized about tipping several times.

My husband and I chose this restaurant for the spectacular view of Beech Mountain. The atmosphere was super, price paid for meal was acceptable, and the food was good. We ordered the short ribs and salmon.

This was an amazing experience! My wife and I didn't want to leave. The view was great and the food/services was fabulous. We ate and enjoyed the upstairs bar area. Definitely recommend this as a must for anyone visiting the area even if you just stop in and take in the view.
