We tagged along with the owners of Azalea Inn and ended up here for dinner. They said it was a favorite place of theirs and the food was good.

We had a great dinner with Greg and Amy before they headed back to the B&B. Then we met some locals and closed the place down that night. We had several beers and made some new friends. It turned out several people from the B&B were there and we all sat around and had a great time with the staff and local folks.

Our server was awesome. She ended up hanging out with us, after she got off work. If was a lot of fun.

Good food, good people, clean bathrooms, not the typical tourist place.

We ate out on the deck and had a wonderful evening and great food. I had the fish tacos made by Chuck which were terrific. My wife had the fresh made potato soup by Mike and loved it. We also nibbled on zucchini fries. What a great time. We try to go there everytime we are up in the mountains!

Great food and large portions. Fried okra to die for. Sport bar also. Great place to hang with friends or meet the locals.

I love b-b-q brisquet but you can't cut theirs much less chew it. I don't understand why they consider themselves a Texas smokehouse.

Food was good - we had burgers and the trout. Enjoyed the outdoor ambiance of the town of Banner Elk.
