We've always thought of Canyons as a real treat for our special occasionsbecause the view is fantastic, and the food and service have always been great, so we chose to celebrate our first wedding anniversary there on Saturday night. I also appreciate their food-consciousness, using fresh and organic foods. However, this trip, everything about the evening was horribly disappointing. 1.... More

Our first time to eat at Canyons and we ate outside even though it was quite chilly. The clouds were hovering over the mountains. The food was very good and our server was very knowledgeable.

We always try to stop in at Canyons while we visit this area. If the weather complies, go out and eat on the terrace. Grilled burgers are yummy and the restaurant Is laid back. Great views and staff are all friendly & motivated.

I have to agree that the restaurant is dated - the carpet is so old. But, we sat on the outside deck and the view was spectacular. The meal was very average. But, sometimes it's worth average food to be in a spectacular place. Imagine what it could be if the place was spiffed up a bit and had really... More

Our steaks were a bit undercooked for how each person ordered... ie, med was rare, well was med, etc... It was delicious. The salad bar was awesome and the people loved the soup (I did not have any). The service was good. I do think it was a bit overpriced though.

The total experience requires beautiful weather, but the food is always good - not great, but better than average. Outside deck is fantastic, especially on a clear day. 50 mile+ views, spectacular! Good service from friendly staff too.

We decided going to this restaurant as we drove by and were impressed by the location, the restaurant has windows looking to the smoky mountains as well as a perched deck, but inside it needs a lot of TLC, the carpet looks dirt, the lights are not enough to provide enough illumination inside. The food was pretty good, although no... More

We wanted to stop here because of the view. It was mid day on a Friday so we thought drinks & apps would be fun. It was about to rain so we had to sit inside. Luckily we had a table by the windows in the bar area as the rest of the place was very dark and dungeon like.... More

We went there becuase the restaurant we wanted to go to in Blowing Rock was closed on Sunday. We had wanted to try this place because of their unique menu and how good it smelled when initially driving into town earlier that day. Once arriving around 6:00 on a Sunday evening we were immediately seated. Our waitress was ok at... More

The view is superb! It would nicely compliment a tastefully planned dining establishment. But, sadly the dining experience pales. The fare is merely a notch or two above standard pub food. And the decor is reminisant of an unkept neighborhood bar. I'd pass this one by the next time around.
