This is THE place to dine in WNC so be prepared to wait for the first available table as they don't take reservations. The panoramic views are spectacular, the food heavenly yet affordable, and the service divine. The place is closed during the winter but when opened, always packed and a line waiting outside! Sit in the chairs and gaze... More

You will feel like you are on top of the world when staying at the Pisgah Inn and enjoying their excellent local fare. The menu is limited yet has all the Southern favorites you look for. Enjoy a great sirloin steak, ribs or salmon dish. Good fresh breakfasts each day is included with the room rate too.

You go to this restaurant for the view and it's worth it! Desserts are outstanding! I wish it wasn't so far off the beaten path but with a view like this it's understandable! Food is good... Can get crowded for good tables

The food is quite good and the view even better. Eater there 10-15 times over a 40 year period. Expect a wait at peaks times, especially the fall "leaf season". Onion soup is my personal favorite, but never had a bad meal.

We went with a group of 12 during leaf season. Not very smart. The wait tainted our perception of the food and service. The service was okay and the food was okay. The view is awesome.

We were a group of about 20 motorcycle tourers, that stopped for lunch after a long ride down the Blueridge Parkway. We were welcomed and seated quickly. The food was the best food I had had on my entire trip down south. The table of four we sat with had Fried Green Tomatoes with a wonderful chutney, French Onion Soup,... More

We had the pork chops which were okay but nothing special. Certainly not worth the long wait. Couldn't beat the scenery tho'.

We are biased as we stay here every fall for the leaf change. They could jack up the prices because the next restaurant is in Waynesville 25 miles away, but they don't. Even though this is listed as Waynesville, it is actually on the Blue Ridge Parkway at mile 408.5. The food consistently is quite good and the wait staff... More
