Unpretentious, delightful, divine view.

I understand that there was an old inn here before this one was built in the 60's, and it is sooooo 60's in the way that is becoming appreciated as mid-century modern. We got there on a late summer weekday after trying to eat there last fall to find a 1 1/2 hour wait. The restaurant doesn't open... read more

We were on a trip through the Smoky Mountains and my mother had such memories from childhood of this place. So she made reservations weeks in advance and was excited to stop here for lunch. Unfortunately the place has changed in the last few decades. Many of the views were overgrown with trees, the grand porch is now tiny, and... More

Great food in a excellent restaurant associated with The Pisgah Inn. The views are breath-taking and the dishes on the menu specialize local seasonal favorites. Even breakfast was well done!

No, I'm not one to photograph food. The beautiful part comes from the views of the Blue Ridge Mountains seen through the glass walls of the dining room. Spectacular! The menu was varied, with many enticing choices. The catfish /shrimp po-boy lunch special, with a Highlands Brewing Dark Mocha Stout was the perfect match for the inspiring scenery. Great service,...

Stopped in for a late lunch Saturday. Seated promptly by the wall to ceiling windows. Menu covers a wide range of offerings.Fresh trout is the highlight here. Prepared three different ways.Our table chose walnut encrusted trout(large portion and cooked perfectly) and rib eye steak(8oz, 3/4",flavorful,bit tough in spots,but overall not bad). This comes with bread and two side selections.Our table... More

We ate lunch here back in June and it was really good. This time we decided to get up early enough to have breakfast at Pisgah Inn Restaurant. We had to drive from Gatlinburg on The Blue Ridge Parkway. Our breakfast was served nice and hot and it was so good. Our server was little odd. We kept asking him... More

We visit the Pisgah Inn Restaurant frequently, but not usually for lunch. We were there on a weekday and waited approx 20 minutes for a table. ( A table by the window would have been much longer). In order to feed as many people as possible, the tables are a little close together. Not private by any means. I had... More

We have been here probably a dozen times over 10 years. The views are constantly changing as the weather changes. The food is pretty consistent as well as the service. The menu is limited and has a wide variety of food such as beef, pick, fish, chicken. There are specials every night and they might a little pricey. Deserts are... More

Had Dinner here with several friends. Everyone's food was great and the atmosphere and food where wonderful. It was busy when we got there but a glass of wine out on the deck while waiting just added to the evening... A little off the beaten path but well worth it. Excellent Gluten free options...
