First, I must disagree with the review by someone in Boone, who talked about the 2 menus. Yes, there are 2 menus offered to you, which gives you a larger variety of food available to choose from, how is that a problem? Since we visit this restaurant often, we have always been told about the possibility of the food not coming out together since we would be ordering from 2 separate kitchens. Not a problem, the food comes out within 5 minutes or less from each other. The wait staff has always been very friendly and helpful. Also, as far as the difference in price when you order the same thing from the other menu, they do NOT offer the same food on the other menu, so that is totally not true. Sounds to me like the person who wrote the review didn't bother to go to the restaurant but must be in the business of writing bad reviews!
Our experiences there have all been positive, the food is excellent, the prices are very fair, the atmosphere is "fun", the summer concerts on the patio are a blast especially for kids, the ice cream shoppe has a large variety of ice cream. homemade waffle cones (YUM!) and shakes, the espresso bar not only has a large variety of coffee drinks but also smoothies & frappes (who doesn't love a Mocha Frappe' (skinny of course) !!
To sum it all up, this place offers everything and NOTHING I can complain about !! Hats off to the owners & employees who make it what it is, a Banner Elk Icon !!!!
