The food is average, however when you are at the top of Mount Mitchell, food can be very good. The service was exceptional. The hostess, waitress and cashier were extremely nice, polite and professional. Kudos,to the staff.

What a beautiful park. The restaurant was a little disappointing as it was advertised as fine dining. I viewed it as bar food without a bar. The menu consisted mostly of sandwiches and sides including deserts. The food was good and the service was friendly....More
