An unexpected mountain dining experience with amazing views

Seeking relief from the record breaking heat in NC we headed onto the Blue Ridge Pkwy to higher elevations to walk and view the scenic mountain tops.

Another great meal at Pisgah Inn. Took grandson and girlfriend up for a nice dinner. When we arrived, the power was off so couldn't be seated right away - they couldn't confirm that we would be able to order a hot meal. Soon the electricity was restored and we were seated and ordered. I had the Chef Salad, hubby had... More

Ate here on 6/25. Very good food and service, views are excellent. Tried the walnut encrusted trout with blueberry butter at the recommendation of our waitress and I thought it was great, although my mother didn't feel the same way. Overall a wonderful oasis in the middle of the mountains to stop and eat in.

We really enjoyed eating at the Pisgah Inn. Try to get a window table if available as the view is gorgeous! Our waitress was Connie and she was an excellent server. We had the chicken pot pies for lunch and they were delicious!

Both meals were excellent and the views were outstanding. The best grilled salmon I've had and wife pork chops were excellent also. Breakfast is part of your room charge and a real sit down breakfast. Lot of choices too. Great atmosphere for your meals.

My husband and I were in the area for our wedding anniversary. We were tired from hiking and driving, and googled to find a good restaurant in the area. After calling ahead to check about reservations and dress code, we headed over. I was excited to be trying the trout, and was told the trout was caught that morning. I... More

This is our favorite place to eat, and went there for Father's Day. The food is amazing, the service is very good, right down to de boning your fresh trout at the table, if you wish. Decadent desserts. Views of 20-39 miles from 5,000 elevation. We go there several times a year. You will not be disappointed!!

We always come here for dinner when in the area and enjoy a delicious meal. This meal started out the same way. Rib steak special was terrific, tender and full of flavor; the basic trout was tasty and quite a large serving. We were very pleased and decided to order the blackberry cobbler for desert...what a disappointment!! It was as... More

My husband and I went to the North Carolina Arboretum for the day and realized that the Inn was just 9 miles away and decided to go for dinner. What an awesome place! We had a 45 min wait (no reservations) for dinner and enjoyed the nice gift shop and a local beer on the deck. The food was outstanding... More

We had dinner and breakfast here. Dinner was excellent, my wife had chicken scallipini and I had the fresh rainbow trout. While the fish was good, my wife's meal was outstanding. I highly recommend the summer squash casserole. Breakfast was free as we stayed there. I had french toast and sausage and my wife had pancakes and sausage. Mine was... More
