We decided to meet some friends for lunch and needed a restaurant half way between where we both were staying while in western NC. We chose Stoney Knob and we are glad we did. Even though it was lunch time reservations were recommended, and we are glad we called ahead. The place was packed with people waiting outside. The decor is funky, the staff amazingly friendly, and the food is very good. If you are in the area, I would put Stony Knob on your list for lunch or dinner.
