Great Locally Owned Restaurant

We were staying at the Homewood Suites, which is an easy 1 minute walk to this restaurant. The food and service were very good. Portions were larger than expected. The spinach salad was wonderful and the scallops were as well. We actually ate here 2 nights because we liked it so much the first... read more

We stopped in for lunch and had the Spanakopita which was a special, not on the regular menu. It was very good and it came with a salad. It is nice to have local restaurants to eat at and we look forward to going back in the next six weeks to eat again. Our server was very nice and we... More

This place has been here as long as I can remember...it's been years since I'd been here but was not disappointed. They give you plenty of food and prices are good. Great service too

Great place for home style cooking. Great chicken noodle soup on a cold, rainy day. Met a friend there for lunch and we were able to sit for hours and talk without anyone disturbing us. It was quiet ( which is rare anymore). Always like to select this place over the many chain restaurants.

Wasn't expecting the quality of the top Asheville Breakfast eateries, but was quite disappointed with the very average diner experience. Waitress suggested the home fries which she described as really great. They were not so great! Below average at best. It remedy you of Denny's only locally owned I believe. A huge portion of disappointing food.

In a city that has many specialized and fancy restaurants, it is refreshing to dine at one that simply provides good food and service at a fair price. There is nothing trendy or pretentious at the Cornerstone. Nor is there an issue finding parking. I ordered a lamb gyro platter that arrived with fresh vegetables, delicious meat, and good sauce....

Just drove in to town, checked in at the Hampton and wanted something easy. Manager suggested this restaurant and it was a good recommendation . Service was very good and the food was very good. Sweet potato was great! Our server was attentive and pleasant . Everything we had was very good. Nice surprise for us!

We were in search of a place to eat breakfast and one f the locals recommended Cornerstone. Am I glad he did! The food was delicious and the price was very reasonable. Much better than overpriced specialty restaurants.

This place is great. The waitresses are super friendly. The servings are huge. My wife and I ate there 3 times during our vacation. At the urging of our waitress, twice we split a meal between us and we still walked away full. That also makes it a cheap place to eat. You won't be disappointed.

We like to visit local family owned restaurants whenever possible so as the Cornerstone is located within a few minutes of our daughter's home, we decided to give them a try. While we weren't disappointed, we weren't thrilled either. Our server, while pleasant, could definitely use a little more training. She had to be reminded of a couple of things,... More
