Everything on the menu here is good and affordable, but the real appeal of this location is the astonishingly beautiful mountain views from its outdoor deck. This restaurant is a favorite with locals and visitors alike.

Stopped by Canyons today. It was closed. Work crews were actively working on the building. There is a new banner pulled over the Canyons sigh- " OPENING SOON! THE RIDGELINE". It was time.

There are wonderful views of the mountains and valleys below you. I had always heard that the food was exceptional but i did not have that experience. I have been there a couple of times and probably will not go back.

Not only does this local spot host spectacular views, the food is good as well. What a fun place to enjoy the North Carolina mountains. On a clear day you can see for mikes. There are great views from inside or out.

I've eaten all over Blowing Rock, and this is hands down the best restaurant in town. Amazing views you won't find anywhere else (unless you're a millionaire with a hilltop home). Looking out the window at the bar is worth at least one drink, and...More

This old restaurant has a great view of the WNC mountains and the food is good. A very friendly waitress made the visit even more enjoyable. One thing, though, is that wait to be served our meal from the kitchen was awful and frustrating.
