We stopped in for a bathroom break and a cold refreshment and had a delightful visit. We enjoyed a flight of four beers. The beer was tasy and our host was very knowledgeable. I bought a nice bottle of red wine. Take time to stop in here for a visit; you won't be sorry!

My wife and I have been here several times for lunch and a brew. We have never been disappointed. We are amazed at the quality of food that comes out of the kitchen. This is a great place to take visitors when they are in the area or a great place to have a wonderful meal for those of us... More

Love the Toe River Cafe and Blind Squirrel Brewery. I definitely recommend searching out this hidden treasure. This was our second visit. Today we brought other members of our family. We started off in the newly added bar/tasting room that was nicely done. We did a beer tasting - 3 sample flights - 12 different beers - nice varied selection... More

Tucked away in beautiful Plumtree NC, this restaurant and brewery is a real gem. We had hiked a portion of the Appalachian Trail nearby and dropped by the lodge for lunch. The menu wasnt extensive but our group raved about the quality and taste of each selection. Great sandwiches and remarkable beers! Try a tasting flight to get a sampling... More

Had a pretty negative experience here. Stay in one of the rooms off the general store. The bathroom is shoe horned into the tiniest of closets, smells horrid, and hardly flushes. Also, the outside street light shine right in through the blindless windows. This bed was festooned with doillies and pillows. It was like staying at middle class civil war... More

We were told about Toe River by friends and even though it was quite a drive from Blowing Rock, it was worth the trip. Incredible brunch and friendly service. Highly recommend!
