Went for lunch. Nice selection of down home comfort food and good service. As an added bonus, if the day is clear, the mountain view is excellent.

Sitting in Canyons restaurant looking out on the Blue Ridge and Grandfather Mountain is truly extraordinary. It almost makes up for the average fare. The food is not bad at all. Some dishes are really tasty, but overall it is nothing to brag about. And the restaurant itself doesn't seem clean to me -- dirty carpets, sticky tables and smudged... More

We ate here at 'brunch' time. The food and service were very good. You can't ask for more than that when you are able to look over the beautiful Blue Ridge.

The waitress was great. The food was good but not great. The place has very nasty carpet and the restrooms for women was disgusting. The parking is horrible.

I don't get the uncomplimentary reviews I am reading on tripadvisor for Canyons. My food has always been great. They offer a variety of different options from Mexican, to burgers and other sandwiches. My personal favorites are the enchiladas and I always request spinach and shrimp which they have no problem accommodating, and the Maui chicken sandwich or plate. I... More

Visited Canyons again on a recent trip to Blowing Rock. Still a special place. Beautiful views from the deck of this historic old place. Honest pours at the bar. We stick with the local farm to table dishes, which change frequently. The local trout special was excellent, and my wife thought the duck burger was very tasty. Friendly, attentive service.

Had lunch today I had the special duck tacos, and my husband had chicken finger plate. The food was good cooked well but not special. The view off the deck is amazing. The building is run down and is in need of a good cleaning.

If you like your food served by someone with a nose ring and as good as you can slap together right out of grocery store packaging, then you just might like this place. Did I mention the HVAC system must be from the 60's? The only good thing about this place is the location

It's really all about the view -- breath-taking. My husband, son, and I ate brunch here. Portions are generous. Our son had steak and eggs, which came with breakfast potatoes and a muffin. I had salmon cake benedict -- asked for eggs cooked easy -- one was perfect; the other cooked too long. Also came with breakfast potatoes and a... More
