This is a favorite spot for locals and is jam packed during tourist season. There's a small bar, and the food is chef prepared. We enjoys their burgers and salmon entrees. Their sweet potato fries are excellent. They make their own salad dressing. I'd give them a five, but there seems to be some turnover with the waitstaff. I've eaten... More

First off, the views of the Appalachian mountains are stunning. We went on a very busy Saturday afternoon in the summer, so the restaurant was actually turning away large groups of 6 or more. The food was very good (I had the mahi-mahi Reuben sandwich). My friends had various salads which they all enjoyed. The server was attentive and brought... More

I have eaten here many times, with my husband and friends and with my hiking group, always had a great meal and good service with a gorgous view. The view is still there, but that's about it. I took my family there today for lunch, there was 12 of us. Upon entering the restaurant the "manager/hostess" never said "Hi, hello,... More

My husband and I ate lunch on the deck and saw a gorgeous mountain view-hence, the restaurant's name. It was a comfortable July day with a breeze so the outdoor eating area was perfect. We only ordered sandwiches but they were yummy. My husband thought his Reuben was delicious and my Cranberry Turkey panini was good, too. This location is... More

Nothing tastes more amazing in your mouth as your eyes are feasting on decadent view of the Blue Ridge Mountains from the porch or dining area of this well preserved and elegant yet inviting restaurant.

What a stunning view from this restaurant!! Beautiful! I ordered rainbow trout and my husband had mahi mahi sandwich. Everything was cooked to PERFECTION. I haven't had trout cooked so beautifully in a very very long time. Great service from a new young lady just hired, and a really lovely wine selection. Very much enjoyed this lunch with our kids...

The view and the food were outstanding. The service was very friendly and polite. They were very busy on this Saturday visit and things were a bit hectic, but they did just fine. Will go back.

Good food at reasonable prices, friendly staff and a great view. This is right off of the Parkway outside of Spruce Pine, NC. Well worth a stop.

Great food too. I would have given this a 5 however we had a few issues. We called for directions, whoever answered could not help us, and said well it is packed here anyway. So after asking could we make a reservation, she said yes. We get there (after stopping back at our motel to ask for directions) and there... More

Stopped by here on a rainy afternoon. Good food, better view even with the rain. The fog would roll in and you could not see anything and 20 minutes later it was all clear again. Pretty cool.
