Gorgeous Views

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

We go here to eat every time we are in the area! Great food and great service every time. Always crowed but we always get seated very quickly. Will be going back for sure when in the area again!

We stopped here after a day of skiing at a local resort. Arriving right at sunset, the view was spectacular. Once inside, we were seated promptly enough, but the service was a bit slow for my liking. When the food arrived, it was average at best. My son's burger was so burnt on one side that it was inedible. For... More

I've been going to canyons for a long time. If nothing else come for the sunsets. either inside or on the deck they're awesome. enjoy a great drink and some really good food. They have great fries and the best veggie burger around. Finish it off with the darby pie or the chocolate enchilada.

You can't beat the view here. We stopped to take a sunset picture and decided to go back the next day for lunch. The staff was helpful and our food was good. The "Fish and Chips" that my son ordered was especially delicious. The plate had two huge, fresh pieces of flounder and crispy fries. There were people being seated... More

Everytime we visit Blowing Rock, we have to go to Canyons for their Sunday brunch. They have a two or three piece jazz band that plays, and the brunch food is very good. Other menu items I have tried are ok, so I stick to the biscuits and gravy, which are great. The view is really incredible. Great place to... More
