Canyons A Nice Spot

We had lunch at Canyons on our recent rip to Blowing Rock. Very good food, very good service at a very reasonable price.

I was excited to find out that Canyons has a separate vegan menu (ask the hostess for it), since my fiance and I are both vegan. I ordered the veggie burger wrap with the side vegetable medley. The veggie burger wrap, which is only listed on the vegan menu, was served to me with a cheesey sun-dried tomato spread on... More

Amazing view, especially at sunset on a clear day. The food, however, is only average, as is the decor. The place is always packed, so be prepared to wait if you have a party of more than 4 people.

Was seated in the bar area, where the foul patron rants were very offensive. Waitress offered to seat us elsewhere on our way out of the door. That should have been the sign to leave. We stayed for the mountain and valley views, which were impressive from our table. No bad views from most tables. I ordered the fish and... More

We stopped in on a sunny Saturday afternoon in May. There were no tables available on the outside deck, so we were seated inside by the window. When we saw an outside table open, we asked our waitress if we could be moved, which she did promptly and with a smile. The views of Grandfather mountain, Grandmother mountain, Mount Mitchell...

Came to Canyons because I read about the views and they were right, the sunset views from the deck are amazing. Food was good, nothing amazing but I would return for a relaxing dinner outside to take in the mountains.

Delicious food, fantastic view, and pleasant staff. We often sit on the balcony to enjoy the view. It is especially pretty when the fog rolls down across the parking lot and into that valley.

My husband & I ate there for dinner on Sunday. Good service, good value, good food & great views of the mountains. You can eat either indoors or out on the deck. Full bar, nightly specials & they have a Sunday brunch with Jazz music. I had the special which was a honey bourbon steak and my husband had the... More

The restaurant sits with a spectacular view of the mountains, but the food was just ok. We still enjoyed the experience and our evening.

My wife and I stopped by Canyons to have an appetizer (the nachos were awesome!) and a few drinks. Their selection of draft beverages was terrific. In fact, really liked their LOCAL choices. I tried two of the brews from Boone - I believe the brewery was called Lost Province. Wonderful tasting. It was a bit quiet the night we... More
