Description: Garden Deli is hidden under the cool shade of its trademark weeping willow tree on Burnsville's historic Town Square. We offer a lush garden setting for outside dining either under our tree, or under a covered deck 6 months out of the year. We also offer a full-size dining room inside with natural wood walls, hand-made lanterns, and oil paintings of local landscapes. We have a fireplace and a cozy atmosphere during the colder months, as we are open year-round.

Crab cakes and crous was AWESOME! Memorable presentation. Staff were attentive. Crowded atmosphere but not too bad. Ribs were dry but tasty. Thanks for a great dining experience.

Recently had lunch here while visiting relatives. Had a short wait-place was full-we found out why. Menu selections were numerous. We decided on the daily special soup and sandwich. The portions were very large and the quality was great. Our waitress was outstanding. I related this to the cashier when we were leaving-she said their wait staff "had been with... More

The food just wasn't all that good. The seafood bisque was on the salty side. My Ceasar Salad had iceberg lettuce in it! Seriously. The fish on my husbands sandwich was cooked perfectly but it was a piece of fish on a sad roll. No lettuce, tomato, or any other fixings. No. Not true. I forgot the packet of tartar... More

Our Garden Caesar Salad is "Made with a blend of fresh hand-torn Romaine, Green Leaf and Iceberg lettuces" as it clearly states in the "Garden Salad Specials" section of our menu. You ordered a Garden Caesar Salad topped with Turkey & Bacon, without dressing. We take pride in all of our salads at Garden Deli. We NEVER USE BAGGED OR... More

We stopped for lunch, we had soup and sandwiches...very good, good service. My husband had a Club sandwich and I had a BLT. Both were prepared perfectly and very good. Others our party (7 of us) were also very happy with their meals. This restaurant was not open at night when we were there, so could not return for dinner.

This restaurant has been around for years, and I can understand why! The food is constantly GREAT! Nothing special...just good tasting fresh-made food. I've been going there for over 8 years.Their menu ranges from soups and salads to sandwichs and desserts. There are daily specials depending on what fresh food is available. Very casual, with seating indoor and out. They... More

We had dinner on a Friday Night (the are open for dinner three nights a week). Nice casual restaurant with reasonable prices. Specials looked interesting but we opted for seafood (shrimp and grouper). Great selection of cold draft beer and interesting wines available too.

My husband and I will be coming back for sure. Hot roast beef and chicken sandwiches we got were fabulous. People are friendly.

While spending a getaway weekend at Mt. Mitchell, we drove the 15 or so miles over to Burnsville to have a casual meal at The Garden Deli in historic Burnsville. Couldn't have made a better choice. On a balmy summer evening, the outdoor seating was just right for enjoying a meal. The Garden Deli has an expansive outdoor seating area... More

We had reservations for a 7:30 play, and needed a good, easy spot for dinner. This was a beautiful place. We ate outside, under a canopy of trees. The atmosphere was gorgeous, and the food and service were excellent. Highly recommended!
