“Kid friendly”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012

This restaurant had good food, and a very very good beer selection at a reasonable price. But I am writing his review primarily because the staff were without a doubt the most kid friendly, courteous waiters I have even seen in a restaurant. My wife and I drive through this area several times a year and will choose to go through Banner Elk just because of how friendly these guys were, from now on. Please support this business.

“wonderful cajun food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

We ate at this restaurant on two occasions. The food is excellent and the service was superb. The first night we had creole and a cajun food sampler dish. everything was very good. the second night we had drinks and appetizers. Try the bourbon teriayka wings, very good as was the queso and chips and french onion soup. We had a wonderful waiter both nights, his name is Walter. ask for him when you go there

The owners of the b&b we stayed in told us to try this place. They said it was good. They were wrong. It is great. We really enjoyed the food and the girl the helped us was really nice. The drinks were very, also.

“WONDERFUL”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2012

I love traveling to New Orleans and a big part of the reason is the food. Now I don't have to get on a plane or drive 10 hours to enjoy the best style of food in the country. Winston, brought it to Banner Elk in the Bayou Smokehouse.

“Awesome Po'Boy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2012

As good as anything down south. This people moved up here from LA and they know how to fix some great food. This place was recommended by our innkeepers at banner haven and they were right on the money, "cajun food in the highcountry" and done right.
