Ordered the ribeye special medium rare and it came out burned black and crusty on one side and definitely not medium rare on the inside. Very disappointed. Place was not busy. Service was good.

Garden Deli is a spectacularly decorated restaurant from the outside, automatically offering a curb appeal that could lure almost anyone in. While receiving amazing service from my wonderful waitress, Tonya, I could not help but look around at how busy it was. Even though it...More

My family is from Yancey County. I remember when the country store was here before it burned down. Now that's a long time ago. Their dinners are OK, but if you plan on getting a good salad or sandwich, you are in the wrong place....More

The Garden Deli has a little something for everyone. It’s much bigger inside than I thought. When in the area give it a try, I want to go back in the summer and eat outside.

The Garden Deli looks small from the outside, but has plenty of seating inside. The pulled pork sandwich and club sandwich were delicious. Service was very good despite the fact that the restaurant was full.

Garden Deli is hidden under the cool shade of its trademark weeping willow tree on Burnsville's historic Town Square. We offer a lush garden setting for outside dining either under our tree, or under a covered deck 6 months out of the year. We also offer a full-size dining room inside with natural wood walls, hand-made lanterns, and oil paintings of local landscapes. We have a fireplace and a cozy atmosphere during the colder months, as we are open year-round.
