We just stopped in for a drink after shopping. This place has a wonderful view of the river and Chimney Rock, and very friendly and helpful staff. Nice place, wish we'd had time to stay for a meal!

After spending the day hiking at Chimney Rock State Park this was a good place to stop and relax for dinner. We sat on the deck and had a great view of the mountain. The kids could play horseshoes or corn hole and run around in the grassy parking area below the deck where we could still keep an eye... More

Service was horrible took waitress 20 mins to get drink order.......not to mention she was very rude! Our dinner was the nastiest thing I ever put in my mouth! I have had my fair share of bad dinning experiences but this was by far the worst!

This was our first stop after we unpacked at our honeymoon cabin! It was rainy and flooding, so we were 2 of about 10 people in the whole place. We ended up just ordering fried mushrooms and wings and they were SOOOOO GOOD! Now everytime we go somewhere and order the same thing, this place is what we compare it... More

We sat on the porch during a nice Friday evening. We asked the waitress for a recommendation. She offered that the barbeque and wings were good. We took her advice and were pleased with the barbeque. They also have pizza, but it is Hunt Bros, not custom made in the kitchen (menu insert for that). It was karaoke night when... More

We were here about 7:30 on a Thursday night. Only one other table seated. We ordered a Chicken salad, nothing on it hardly, a bowl of chili and a grilled chicken sandwich with fries. The salad was skimpy, the chicken breast burnt on one side and the chili tasted like it had cooked for days on a steam table then... More

I have been here before and had great food and service. The service is good but food wasn't up to Parr. I had wings that were under cooked and kids had what seemed like frozen patties for burger and tenders. Good southern tea and good waitress but I miss the great wings you used to have. I hope you turn... More

Should have know better when on Thursday night at 6 PM a place of this size only had one other table of diners. Salad bar had not been refreshed since before lunch and may have not been refrigerated since everything was limp. This is unacceptable when a small dinner salad carries a charge of 4.95 ea. Dinner was only overpriced... More

Service is slow and so so friendly upstairs, but give the downstairs bar a try . You won't be disappointed!
