I first visited this restaurant as a teen in the 60's. Now I live in nearby Asheville and still go there . I'm told it has been under the same management all those years, and they have been doing a superb job. The view is unmatched, the restaurant not large, so every table in the pleasant dining room can share... More

I have been coming here since I was a small child. Every year we looked forward to the trip up the Parkway from Asheville through the tunnels to this lovely mountaintop restaurant. It really hasn't changed much since then, and that is a good thing. We just drove up for lunch. The French onion soup is as delicious as I... More

We had to wait a little bit to have lunch at this restaurant. It is the only place that has lunch in the area that we were in at Blue Ridge Parkway. The wait was well worth it. They brought us warm rolls immediately. They were buttery and amazing. We all decided to order the pulled pork sandwich with fries!... More

Our yearly visit here brought us to this delightful location with views that can't be beat. While the service was pleasant the food was just OK. The French onion soup ($5.95) has changed once again, this time with a horrible lump of bread under the cheese. Neither one of us liked the taste or consistency. We split the Pisgah Inn... More

This place is out in the middle of the BlueRidge Parkway, not really near any city. We were camping at Pisgah mountain campgrounds, and saw the place on one of our hikes. We decided to try it. What a wonderful surprise! The views were spectacular, and the food was outstanding. Good variety from sandwiches to steaks to fried chicken. And... More

There isn't anything for me to dislike about Pisgah Inn Restaurant. The food is wonderful - fresh local fruits and vegetables add to the taste sensations. No assembly line food here.

After a day of hiking and driving a portion of the beautiful Blue Ridge Parkway we detoured here for a light dinner. The restaurant sits on the ridge adjacent to the Pisgah Inn and provides a magnificent view of the west Carolina mountains and the Pisgah Forest. Just prior to our arrival a thunderstorm rolled in adding clouds, thunder and... More

We were with a large group but had very fast, friendly and helpful service. The food was excellent, my steak was cooked just the way I like it, salad was much better than most house salads. Beautiful long distance mountain view from large windows. Will certainly return.

During a week-long Blue Ridge Parkway trip, we found ourselves at the Pisgah Inn Restaurant. My husband had camped with his brothers at the nearby campground previously, but this was our first visit to the restaurant. Everything about our experience was spot-on. The service was great, the food was outstanding, and the view was perfect. Much to our surprise, we... More
