I have lived in Ashe County (Fleetwood) for several years and I just had dinner at the Mountain Aire for the first time. I really loved it. The food was great, they serve you HUGE portions and the service was awesome. Wanna send a special...THANK YOU to Candice my server. As I shared with you, I will bring the whole family back next time. DaveMore

It’s a difficult time for restaurants that we understand. Fortunately, the food is excellent!! Steak cooked exactly as requested. Flounder not greasy & thick. Deviled Crab just like ones we love, but rarely find. We will return!!

We get the large platter and split it when we go! The fish is always delicious and the baked potato and salad bar are always fresh and tasty. My children have gotten hamburgers and chicken fingers and liked them both. There are a lot of...options on the menu, something for everyone.More

Stopped in for dinner while driving up the Parkway. The joint got crowded. We luckily made it in while the restaurant was still empty. It filled up completely within about 20 minutes. We all enjoyed our food. Food came out quickly, plenty of quality checks....Friendly enough service. No alcohol, though. Dry country.More

cooking then this is the place for you. I ordered trout, they ran out, then hubby ordered a chicken breast, ran out, ok, they only open at 4:30, we got their at 7:30, I find it hard to believe they ran out. If you want...anything grilled or broiled they charge you extra, and you had to pay extra because I actually wanted veggies with me dinner which tasted frozen from a bag. The waitress was super friendly, but the place is very dated, floors were dirty and salad bar was lacking in greens. I can say we won't be stopping again.More

We ate here our first day of vacation. I got the ribeye and my mother-in-law got a fish plate and we shared. Everything was great. The service was good too.

I love restaurants like this one. The person running the register owns the place; that says something. Hush puppies are legit! Really crispy and a tad sweet. I had the sirloin and shrimp special which was to my surprise excellent. Sirloin was perfectly seasoned and...Medium rare. Shrimp were firm, large and perfectly seasoned. All of the rest of our food was perfectly prepared as well. Ambiance is not amazing, more of a throwback in time. Service is pleasant, helpful and very accommodating.More

We are new in area and needed something different for a change. It was okay- service was friendly, food was delivered timely. One ordered regular seafood platter (2 of 3 items were eaten), the other a basic seafood item(all eaten). The meals were served hot,...but just average in flavor, portions were sizable. Nothing spectacular about the experience. The facility is dated, and has an strange odor when you come in front door- it was not pleasant and persisted during meal. Menu has broad selections, salad bar was basic but nevertheless a salad bar. Large seating areas, and appear to be able to close off a room for a large gathering (aka family reunion). Located just off the Blue Ridge Parkway for easy on/off if traveling north or south.More

My husband chose this restaurant for his seafood birthday dinner. Honestly, it was going well until Michelle, the sweet waitress, told me she could not give me a large bowl of lemons when I asked. Never have I ever been denied lemons at a seafood...restaurant. It left a sour taste in my mouth and attitude for sure. Luckily, because she was so very busy, and the other waitress asked if I needed anything. When I asked for extra lemons. The extra help changed my MIndMore
