No, I'm not one to photograph food. The beautiful part comes from the views of the Blue Ridge Mountains seen through the glass walls of the dining room. Spectacular! The menu was varied, with many enticing choices. The catfish /shrimp po-boy lunch special, with a Highlands Brewing Dark Mocha Stout was the perfect match for the inspiring scenery. Great service,...

Stopped in for a late lunch Saturday. Seated promptly by the wall to ceiling windows. Menu covers a wide range of offerings.Fresh trout is the highlight here. Prepared three different ways.Our table chose walnut encrusted trout(large portion and cooked perfectly) and rib eye steak(8oz, 3/4",flavorful,bit tough in spots,but overall not bad). This comes with bread and two side selections.Our table... More

We ate lunch here back in June and it was really good. This time we decided to get up early enough to have breakfast at Pisgah Inn Restaurant. We had to drive from Gatlinburg on The Blue Ridge Parkway. Our breakfast was served nice and hot and it was so good. Our server was little odd. We kept asking him... More

We visit the Pisgah Inn Restaurant frequently, but not usually for lunch. We were there on a weekday and waited approx 20 minutes for a table. ( A table by the window would have been much longer). In order to feed as many people as possible, the tables are a little close together. Not private by any means. I had... More

We have been here probably a dozen times over 10 years. The views are constantly changing as the weather changes. The food is pretty consistent as well as the service. The menu is limited and has a wide variety of food such as beef, pick, fish, chicken. There are specials every night and they might a little pricey. Deserts are... More

Had Dinner here with several friends. Everyone's food was great and the atmosphere and food where wonderful. It was busy when we got there but a glass of wine out on the deck while waiting just added to the evening... A little off the beaten path but well worth it. Excellent Gluten free options...

This us a must-see on the Blue Ridge Parkway, just south of Asheville. The restaurant is an area favorite, but best to go in off-hours -- or be ready for a wait. The Pisgah Inn Restaurant offers great views and good cuisine. If there's a wait, sit on the rockers on the balcony to chill and enjoy nature at its... More

Many great options on the menu, but the grilled whole trout, filleted at your table, is the highlight. Service is great, and the view from the expansive windows can't be beat: mountains, mountains, mountains! Breakfast is also really good.

I had the BLT. Loaded with good thickcut bacon and fresh picked tomatoes. The fried green tomatoes were delicious. My friends had the crab cake po boy and left nothing!! The view was spectacular. Worth the drive.
