Our server was somewhat hesitant as first and seemed flustered. She recovered nicely and ended by being very good. I had Moussaka, which was listed as containing penne pasta, it was good but of course contained no penne. Large side salad, the ranch was great! Homemade honey mustard wasn't as good. Wife's Chicken tenders large, lightly breaded and well cooked.... More

The food was very good. Big portions, very tasty. It was very busy when I was there so service was a bit slow, but the staff was very friendly.

We ate here a number of times during our week in Asheville, and it was quick, consistent and a great value for the cost. You will walk out with a carryout bag, and be happy with what you ordered and managed to eat on-site. It is not fancy, but it is darn good food for a great price.

Had soup and sandwich. Soup was perfect, not too salty. Sandwich was toasted to a golden brown with lots of chicken salad. Service was quick and pleasant.

My husband, son and I had a delicious, no-frills Thanksgiving dinner at Cornerstone. We were in town to visit The Biltmore Estate, and after walking all day, we just wanted a simple homemade kind of meal. We found it at Cornerstone. The food was tasty, the portions were huge, the price was sensible, and the service was great. My husband... More

I sometimes miss the '80's. Less pretentious food, good servings, and servers who are more frequently called Marge . Cornerstone is one of those holdback restaurants who embraces everything good about the days gone by. The only issue is that for people like me (someone with an egg allergy) there are very limited options. Grits, Oatmeal, yogurt with fruit. But... More

I decided on the steak and eggs for lunch and the steak flavor was wonderful. Everything we had was good and the restaurant is very nice

We stayed close by after our visit to the Biltmore. The food portions are huge and for the most part the food was great. Everyone in our party wanted something different and this was the place to offer different types of food! Come with an appetite and I would still be surprised if you clean your plate.

Thank Blessedmimi911
