We visit this restaurant a couple times each year. We love it! The chicken strips are really good. The views are beautiful.

Worth a stop to eat in summer season. Great views and rustic look. Wait staff were very nice and knew how to get the home cooked meal out soon. Classic Southern fare.

It was a nice "extra" on our visit to see the vistas high atop Mt. Mitchell (elev. 6,683′) to have lunch. The food is hot and tasty. I had the mountain trout which was very good. The views are gorgeous. It was good.
