Cornerstone is undoubtedly my favorite place for breakfast in Asheville (given that I can't afford the Grove Park Inn's prices). The food is freshly prepared, served hot and the service is attentive and friendly. Add to that a very handy location about half a mile from downtown (easy parking!), near I-240 Chunns Cove exit and it's clear why it is... More

We don't like fast food restaurants so we are always looking for something different. We found Cornerstone Restaurant in Asheville. I ordered a chipotle hamburger with sweet potato fries and was only able to eat half of the hamburger. It was delicious. My husband ordered chicken fried steak which came with two sides. He got a very nice sized salad... More

Nice prepared fresh food with enormous portions. The blackened chicken breast salad was prepared diligently without any shortcuts and tasted great ,too. The triple decker club sandwich was fantastic and size made it difficult to finish. Cheesecake for desert was an added bonus. all in all, excellent food for such a fairly limited menu. However, everything was prepared to our... More

My husband had the trout and he said it was on the dry side. I had the broiled scallops which were very good but they came with cocktail sauce rather than melted butter which is what I prefer. Baked potato and baked sweet potato were both large and fluffy. Salads were good. Friendly wait staff - casual atmosphere.

Hands down, the best ribs I have ever eaten. I have tried a lot of ribs. These are the best. Philly cheese steaks are also fantastic.

They have a wide variety of excellent foods! The prices were very reasonable. I had a portobello sandwich that was 1 of the best I've had.

Locally owned by a Greek family, great choices on the menu for chicken, steak, seafood-- even if you didn't want Greek food. Locals told me about it when I went to see the Biltmore Estate. Just wanted to try something different. Very pleased. High marks on reviews. Only Longhorn's had a slightly higher review. They have great steaks here too.... More

Went here for breakfast today, wish I would have saved the money and went to Wendy's or Chick-fil-a. Food was very average along with the service. The pancakes were very rubber like. My wife ordered the yogurt and it tasted sour.

I was on TripAdvisor looking for a restaurant that might have a particular Greek dish I missed out on at the Greek Festival last weekend, and stumbled upon Cornerstone, the place where I have brunch on a regular basis. I never even think about their Greek dishes... anyway, I love this place so much, I got curious what reviewers had... More
