“the wings are ok”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2012

the wings were decent, but the other food were not the greatest in my opinion.
try not to go there when they have a karaoke night, it can get really loud and the restaurant is small in size.

“Good food and worth a visit!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2011 via mobile

Good wings, fried green tomatoes and sweet potato fries. Bartender was nice. In an area with few choices this place is worth stopping at for a bite to eat!

“Gem in the Mineral City”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2011

The Tin Lizard was a nice find during an autumn afternoon in Spruce Pine. The interior was nicely adorned, simple and welcoming. We had sandwiches and fries - go for the sweet potato ones! Entrees looked good, we were just looking for a quick meal. The wait staff was attentive, and the establishment offers free Wi-Fi for guests. There is a pub area with several draft brews and a nice bar. Give this place a try when visiting the area!
