You will missed this family owed business on Hwy 221 so drive slow. Just good mountain folk doing a good job for those who admire the Blue Ridge Parkway and drive the area. The portions are large the food is excellent. It an't fancy as some might say, but it is worth your time to stop. Mary is their Chef from another establishment and for years she knows how to cook. Don't waste your time going to Boone.... stop in Crossnore and experience the culture of the mountains. Then go to the store up the road too.

this is a family operated restaurant just off the Blue Ridge Parkway...near Linville and Newland NC...it draws not only the surrounding area but many vacationing Floridians...the owner is a gourmet cook...and her touch is everywhere on the menu....World class chicken fingers, home-made soups, salads and sadwiches....Everything is fresh...The real treats are the homemade desserts...fresh cobblers, homemade cakes and bread pudding are worth 6 stars...Open for lunch Wed through Friday...for dinner Wed through Saturday...not the easiest restaurant to find....but well wirth the trip....Very near Crossnore Mural and Crossnore School. No alcohol.

Not a "fancy place" but the food was great at a reasonable price. Good, friendly service. I had the fired shrimp, my wife had the fried flounder. The seafood was fresh, lite breading. The hush puppies were very good also. Good assortment of sides also.

With so few restaurants in this area one has to lower the bar a little. Unless you want to drive a long distance to get a great meal you are stuck with the few restaurants we have. So average becomes excellent. I haven't had a bad meal here but it's not my first choice. We usually go here just to switch things up a little. My girlfriend likes their pasta salad and they have a good seafood platter. I think most out of towners would walk in see the dining room and walk out. Then they would starve because they would walk out of ninety percent of the restaurants in the high country. So here's my advice. Take the atmosphere out of the equation and try the food no matter where you go. You will be surprised what good food you will find
