We are locals that stopped for lunch. Everytime we come I am always amazed at the beautiful view. We got a great table where we could see everything. We were very pleased w the sandwiches and salad. The service was good and we enjoyed a wonderful time.

My Wife, her Aunt visiting from Philadelphia PA, and I visited the Pisgah Inn Restaurant just off the Blue Ridge Pkwy, located above the magnificent Pisgah National Forest!! Firstly, the views of the Forest are breathtaking!! My Beautiful Wife described the view as an "Ocean of Mountains" due to their wave-like appearance!! Then, there's the Restaurant's Greeters! Very pleasant and... More

It seems every time we go to the Pisgah Inn Restaurant it continues to go downhill. It started this time with a chipped water glass that cut a lip, then to an uncooked crab cake which was replaced very late in the meal by a chefs salad when a house salad was ordered. The food was mediocre at best and... More

As an Ashvillian, we frequent this restaurant when we have out of town guests. The food is quite reliably good and the views are always impressive. Great service, and a nice gift shop. The New York Cheesecake is delish, and we love the fried pickles and iced tea.

This was a wonderful little gem that we came across. The views were amazing and the food was very good too! Get there when they first open if you want a table right by a window. :)

A beautiful, scenic place to stop along the Blue Ridge but the food is ordinary. This is our second time having lunch here and it wasn't as good as years ago. Pack a picnic lunch and enjoy the view.

This is a4 star restaurant with views of 30 miles! It just gets better each time we go.. The fish is wonderful, fresh, filleted at your table. Really good veggies and desserts. Never been disappointed!

The Blue Ridge Parkway is known for hundreds of miles of views, mountains and hospitality. The Pisgah Inn Restaurant is one of the very few places directly off the BRP to stop and eat. We are fortunate to live in the area and once in awhile we make time to drive up from Waynesville and eat there. What I love... More

My wife and I have been coming to Pisgah for over 15 years....it "was" one of our favorite places. The restaurant was always a highlight, and we have praised the view and food to many friends. When we came for a two-day visit this year (missed last year), I was shocked to see how much the restaurant had declined in... More
