Fabulous Food with a View

My husband and I have been visiting this restaurant for more than 30 years and it has maintained its "flavor" throughout. The dining room overlooks mountain ridges for as far as one can see but you will still be distracted by the food. They filet whole trout tableside, have delicious steaks and... read more

A beautiful jewel in the midst of the Blue Ridge Parkway! The food is wonderful whether it's for lunch or dinner. I was very pleased to discover they have delicious vegetarian options too!! The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. The view is breathtaking. Sometimes there is a wait, but it is worth it!!

You have to travel up the Blue Ridge Parkway to the Pisgah Inn for dinner. You sit at dinner overlooking the amazing Smokey Mountains. They have FRESH TROUT brought in everyday. Your dinner comes with salad, fresh sauteed vegetables and great fries, I know they have potatoes and rice also. They do not take reservations but it doesn't matter grab... More

If you have ever traveled on the Blue Ridge Parkway, you know the rarity of finding a good resting place that has restrooms, air conditioning, and food! (Most important.) This little inn is a mighty fine gem in the heart of the Smoky Mountains. It is named for the popular hiking trail up to the summit of Mt. Pisgah located... More

My friends took me to the Pisgah Inn for lunch and we had an enjoyable meal with a view of the mountains. We were told the wait for lunch was 40 minutes, but we were paged w/in 20 minutes. We were seated and served water. We ordered French onion soup and 2 of us split a Pisgah Pecan salad with... More

We've visited many times over the last 50 years. It's always a fun place to visit. The restaurant serves some special treats including the rainbow trout filet. I chose the Monte Cristo, a multi layer sandwich featuring egg batter dipped and fried outer bread, with layers of turkey and cheese separated with bread from thin slices of sweet ham. The... More

Good food, reasonably priced, right on the Blue Ridge Parkway. We have returned to Pisgah Inn Restaurant several times and have never been disappointed.

A must stop for travelers along the Blue Ridge Parkway. Went there for lunch. Suggestion: Get there early if you want a window view. Arrived around 11:45 and by that time the restaurant was filling up; did get seated right away but not at a table close to the windows. Within 10 minutes of arriving people were now waiting. Had...

Was really excited to eat here, but it was average at best! From the pictures on their website it looks like fine dining...it's not! With that being said, the view of the mountains was spectacular, and they also accommodated my wife's gluten-free and other food allergies (That's a plus on our book!).

We've been to Pisgah Inn many times but today was the first time the kitchen lost our order. Although we were seated right away, we had to wait 45 minutes on our food. The waiter was extremely attentive and kept apologizing but finally the manager came out to talk to everyone at our table. When our food was served, everyone... More
