I enjoyed my seafood platter at the Cornerstone restaurant. The portions were large and the waitress was very friendly plus on her job making sure I was taken care of. The atmosphere was nice; I sat at a booth with a window facing the city streets. I also order the New York Cheese Cake. The cake was a large portion... More

Stopped here for breakfast. Good service and a good variety. Their portions are pretty large so would recommend sharing if not a big eater. Their home fries are some of the best I've had.

We ate here last night. It was close to our hotel and the menu looked good. It has nice booth seating which my husband and I like. He had a delicious burger and I had a gyro platter which was very tasty. Our waitress was nice and we would return here for sure.

After leaving Biltmore, we were looking for a place to eat dinner. This came up on our GPS as a suggestion and it was a great one. The service was great, restaurant clean and there was quite a varied menu. Portions were generous. One of the specials that day was stuffed trout and it was delicious. There was plenty of... More

Missed our turn to another restaurant, saw the sign for mountain trout, made a quick turn although initially concerned by the diner decor, we had a delicious meal. Two Greek specials were on the menu, Moussaka and Lamb Shanks. We opted for the lamb, perfectly cooked, very tender, in a tasty tomato gravy. What a treat!

Most importantly, the food is delicious! It has something for everybody. Price is reasonable. Big portions! However, they need to work on the aesthetics of this place--inside and out. It would draw in more customers if appearance was updated. If the gentleman at the hotel front desk had not suggested this place, we would have totally overlooked it. Give it... More

This is an interesting diner-type restaurant that has something for everybody - from ribs to seafood to Greek, to Mexican, steak and pasta! I had spinach-stuffed chicken and my husband had the grilled trout. The chicken was wonderful and my leftovers made another meal for me later in the week; he said the trout was "okay" but that it didn't... More

We ate here on the 14th September and had a very good meal. I had the Quesadilla starter and my husband the Baby rack of ribs. The portions were large. We were served by Robyn and she was excellent.

My wife and I stopped here with two of our adult daughters for breakfast. The food was very good and the portions large. It is not cheap, but considering the quantity and quality of food, the price was very reasonable. Service was good also. We ate about 10 am, so it was not crowded. I suspect during regular meal hours,... More
