My husband and I had lunch, on the deck, with an incredible view of the Blue Ridge a Mountains. The food was good as we had salads and wings. The wait staff was friendly and prompt with service. I would recommend this as a stop if you are visiting Blowing Rock.

We visited Canyons a couple of times during our stay in Blowing Rock. In preparing for our trip in Blowing Rock, the reviews of TA did NOT make this stand out and we did not intend to dine here. We had a couple of changes one day and ended up dining here early during our stay in BR. The food... More

My husband and I had a great dinner on the deck, watching the sunset on the Blue Ridge Mountains. The view was so amazing, endless mountains! The drinks were strong and the food was pretty good. I would pay just for that view!

As most of the reviews here say, the view is excellent. Pull into the parking lot, enjoy the view, and then go somewhere else to eat. My wife and I ordered the specials of the day. The rosemary chicken and the ribs. My wife was not impressed with the chicken. My ribs were burnt crunchy on one end, and very... More

What a view! Beautiful long-range view and good pub food. If you are looking for a place to relax with some friends, Canyons will provide you good pub food like burgers, Barbeque, wings, and a full bar. Comfy and cozy place at the edge of town.

We have been going to this restaurant pretty much since they opened. We enjoy their jazz brunch on Sundays and lunch on other days as well. I love their Wild Turkey sandwich and home-made chips with ranch dressing to dip them in. My husband likes their burgers and other sandwiches. We have also enjoyed their shrimp quesadillas that come with... More

This place has some good food with a great view. Service was fast and efficient. The trout sandwich is very good and almost to much for one person. There is alot of road construction in front, but hopefully it will be done soon.

I visited on June 7th. There is limited outside seating so we were not able to get outside which would have been preferable. Initially we were seated in the bar - where a loud wedding party was. We asked to be moved. We were then seated where there was a band. The music wasn't bad but they could not sing.... More

For a get-away weekend in Boone/Blowing Rock we were advised to go to Canyons to eat. We were not disappointed! If nothing else, go there to sit on the deck and look at the view down through the canyon and toward the mountain ranges in the distance...beautiful. Besides that the service was excellent, great 3 course special with delicious clam... More

We had an early dinner with our two small kids. The food was good, the soup, clam chowder and carrot curry were both amazing! The view was amazing as well. Friendly service and it was a nice place to eat with the kids, at least it was 5 to 7ish. We have been before and will continue to return.
