“Oh yes, love it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012 via mobile

Friendly and eclectic restaurant with multiple rooms. Reservations suggested. New menu items often. Prices are reasonable and the service is great. Definitely worth the drive to eat.

“Great food and service but...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2012

We recently visited this restaurant based on the reviews from this website. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience: delicious food, good service and quirky decor. However, when we left, we discovered that a car was blocking the exit out of the back parking lot. After informing the staff--who acknowledged they knew who owned the car--we waited at least 10 minutes and then went back in to remind them we were still waiting. Apparently it was the owner's car and when he finally came out to move the car he glared at us, as though we were bothering him. I'm not sure why because we had not been rude in our request for him to move his car from blocking the only way out of this lot!

“Super good!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2012

Who would believe this place is in Weaverville? I had the scallops with Gorgonzola slaw and my friend had fish (can't remember what kind) and both were so fresh and cooked to perfection! Will definately go back and recommend to anyone who is close to Asheville. Yum!

“Strange but Good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2012

We ate at the Stoney Knob Cafe during our stay last week in Asheville. The food was excellent as was the service. The decor was a little weird, particularly the life size statue of the Blessed Virgin Mary, but it all seemed to work together to make the evening very pleasant. Upon returning to Asheville I would certain return to the SKC

“Great service and food. Neat place.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2012

Off the beaten path, this was a nice change for our week in Asheville. We went because of all of the reviews. The atmosphere and decoration is very different inside. It wasn't bad nor was it cool, I guess it is hard to explain. The menu was interesting and had several choices. Both of our meals were wonderful. Great wine list too.
Unique deserts, and the waitress suggested the house special, poppy seed goat cheesecake.
Although the service was outstanding, I was disappointed about the desert. Although we both really like goat cheese, it just did not work for us. We each only had a bite. The waitress asked, we said not for us, and she said well next time back try the lemon cake. No offer to exchange or remove from the bill.
