“Good service, nice food”
Reviewed May 1, 2013

The cafe has nice service although my waitress went to the cooler to look for my zinfandel wine, not knowing it was a red. The food was nothing extraordinary but nicely made and enjoyable. I would go again. You get what you pay for!

“Best cheese steak sub ever!”
Reviewed April 28, 2013

Great food and good prices. Burgers are good but the cheese steak sub is the best. Great with a Blowing Rock Ale!

“Fun Decor - Great Food”
Reviewed April 21, 2013

The atmosphere here is really "blue ridge mountain" like and the food is great. The service is quick and its a nice perk to have a cafe right up stairs. I recommend this place if you are wondering where to eat in banner elk. Delicious steak and mashed potatoes.

“Delicious food, Super music, and Friendly staff”
Reviewed April 16, 2013

Banner Elk Cafe and Lodge is a fun place to eat. The location is terrific in the shadows of Beech, Sugar, and Grandfather Mountains. You can order from two kitchens and the wait staff is quite attentive. We particularly enjoy sitting outside and listening to the live music. Not many restaurants provide live music, and the music is definitely a plus.

“Nothing spectacular”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Friendly servers & food was OK. We just had burgers & fries because we were ready to get to the resort after 13 hours traveling. The burgers were better than fast food, but nothing special. The desserts in the case looked great, but we were too full to try any
