Located within walking distance from The Skyway Village Inn and just off the Blue Ridge Parkway lies a unique gem for the area. From the outside it might appear to be an average small town restaurant.. but once inside the decor, view and aromas quickly tell a different story. Polite and fast service it is a location that can fill... More

Go for the view and not the food or drinks!! They had no turkey to top the ‘turkey salad’ my husband ordered so the waitress offered chicken instead. That was fine. I ordered a mixed drink which was tasteless. My steak and cheese sandwich was way too salty. Then when the bill came I asked what the extra $4.00 was... More

Great wholesome food with terrific panoramic view. We were there on a chilly, windy fall day and all you could do on the patio was take pictures. I was thrilled that when I made my reservation I requested indoors, because the patio was closed due to weather. We could still enjoy the view from our table on the next room... More

The view from the restaurant was spectacular and the food was good also. We would definitely recommend this to anyone in the area. You should make it up there. It's worth the drive.

We dined at the Mountain View this past weekend, along with everyone else in NC! But not to worry, it was worth the wait. We wanted to be seated on the deck so we could immerse ourselves in the fabulous view. Food was good and waitress was great! I ordered a turkey salad sandwich.....could have been more turkey salad on... More

Our sole reason for our visit was to have a drink and watch the sunset with a 360 view of the mountains. The view was beyond gorgeous. We didn't eat so I cannot give a review about food. My cocktail was not very well mixed and was a too strong, but that is easily forgivable. If we adventure back to... More

My family and I had planned spending the day in the NC mountains, and came across the Mountain View Restaurant online. The restaurant's website boasts stunning views and good food, so we planned to go there for dinner. After spending the afternoon picking apples, we got to the restaurant shortly before 5:00. We were shocked to find out that their... More

I am very sorry for your bad experience at Mountain View! We are a small and very busy establishment. We highly recommend reservations especially on weekends. On this day we did have a wedding party reservation on our deck. Again I sincerely apologize for you bad experience. More

We stopped at this restaurant after reading about the mountain scenery online. We were NOT disappointed. The day was sunny, and the view was gorgeous. Our timing was perfect, as we were seated outside without any waiting. We ordered turkey Reuben's, and they were good. Turkey was carved, not pressed deli turkey. I enjoyed it, but a little dry with... More
