We were so happy to get a table at this beautiful restaurant in Cashiers. We had not planned ahead and had drinks in the bar area until later in the evening, hoping to get a table. Luckily, it was a rainy summer evening and one-ONLY ONE-couple was a no show. The restaurant was filled with well-dressed polite southerners and a... More

Canyon Kitchen has been on our list for years as a special place to take friends to when they visit. I brought a group for dinner recently - arrived early to enjoy the beautiful setting - on a positive note, the bar staff couldn't have been more attentive and the drinks were excellent. After we were seated, we waited. And... More

From the warm, rustic but elegant space to the charming and talented Chef, Canyon Kitchen leaves you wanting more. This is my second time dining there and both times I left feel like I was wrapped in a warm blanket and sent out with sun in my belly. The starter soup was creamy and had wonderful texture. Perfectly cooked, the... More

I have been visiting Canyon Kitchen for four+ years, especially on my birthday with very pleasant experiences. My most recent visit, on yet another birthday, was very disappointing. I made the reservations a month and a half in advance and my partner and I drove 30 miles to the restaurant. We were seated next to an open door on a... More

We were taken to this restaurant by friends that have a house outside of Cashiers - what a wonderful surprise! Restaurant is an updated "Barn" style with a large area inside & outside to dine. There is a large fireplace in the center of the building with comfortable chairs/sofa that let you enjoy the fire before or after dinner. The... More

We had an absolutely delicious meal. The chef accommodated all our food allergies and some were the best we have ever tasted. We highly recommend! We had no complaints.

Canyon Kitchen is located in the most beautiful location, Lonesome Valley. Arrive early and enjoy a cocktail out on the lawn of this valley, or walk among the fresh garden, that supplies many of the ingredients that you will be served. The beautifully appointed barn style building is set in a valley, with exquisite views all around. The food is... More

I am mystified by the reviews of the disappointed. My wife an I just enjoyed a great dining experience there. Cordial bartenders and a drink outside in adirondack chairs watching the sun set on huge rock faces provided a relaxing dinner prelude. At dinner, each of the four courses were creative; and all reflected a nice suite of flavors. For... More

We had heard many good things about this restaurant and felt we were lucky to get reservations on a night when we would be in the area. Our friends who joined us had eaten there once before and had liked it. The muffins which came out first were nothing special, and the next course,a tiny salad with a few greens... More
