Amazing views and great food!

Situated at over 5,200 feet the views are amazing and the food is very tasty. We go there several times a year. FRESH mountain trout and many other entrees. You will not be disappointed but you may face a line!

Visited The Pisgah Inn last year just before they closed for the season. You must try the "pan seared trout", fantastic. The portions are generous, the staff are helpful and friendly. This place is a gem on the Blue Ridge Parkway. Well worth the breathtaking drive.

This is not your typical National Park eating stop. This is a dining experience better than most restaurants in Asheville! The trout is to die for, and the view will make you think you went to heaven!

This is a must stop on your trip along the Blue Ridge Parkway. Plan to spend some extra time to sit in the rockers or stroll along the path. Had the chicken pot pie both times I visited and left stuffed and happy!

Neat place high on the mountain top, hearty portions and great desserts. Very friendly staff and a great gift shop. Expect a wait on pretty days, lots of traffic on the parkway usually means a wait. But let's be serious, it's all about that view. Spectacular!

At the Pisgah Inn, you can get a window seat overlooking the Blue Ridge mountains. You will see a panoramic view of mountains, and sky. It is truly an amazing and stunning view. The desserts are AWESOME. My suggestion is chocolate peanut/butter pie. Their meals are also delicious, and the service is very nice. The drive up there is gorgeous... More
