“Closed and for Sale.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2013

This restaurant went from riches to rags within a few short years, and finally culminated in it's closure. What a shame, as it was 'the' place to eat for a while. The owner was always very nice, the wait staff were for the most part efficient and pleasant, but for some reason everything about it began to slip, until the final demise. Again I say....What a shame. One can only wish the owner and staff better days ahead.

Do Not Confuse this restaurant with the similarly named restaurant located on Hwy 226 South along side of the BRP, in Spruce Pine and over looking the McDowell County countryside.

“Glad its closed”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013

Last time I visited this restaurant food was terrible, had a weird bad smell, waitress not friendly, and I saw a guy in back washing his hair in prep sink..... yuck. Glad its closed before someone hot sick. Sad for the owner but maybe its for the best.

“Wrong Restaurant”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

The reviewers who described spectacular views and great food are obviously thinking of the other Mountainview Restaurant in the area that is located on Highway 226 at it's intersection with the Blue Ridge Parkway. It does indeed have an imaginative and well prepared menu.

But this Mountainview Restaurant, also known as "Sally's" does not have outdoor seating, spectacular views, or great food. It is in a converted double-wide trailer and the only views are from the highway on your way there. It has declined in recent years from once being "okay" to now being best described as merely "edible".

“Is this place really still in business?? It is horrible :(”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2012

The owner cant pay her staff or keep them. This USED to be a booming place in our little one horse town. Now unsuspecting "out of towners" are the only ones giving this place a try & they come out feeling sorry for the waitress & cook. It is time for this owner to shape up or ship out!!!
