Archers Inn d was wonderful and the restaurant was top notch. Perfect after a day of skiing. Set into the side of the mountain you will find a friendly bar and a cozy restaurant. Get there early to watch spectacular sunset. Excellent menu with entrees ranging from $18 for to die for fried chicken to $30 for the magnificent Duck... More

The rooms were just ok and missed some of the things that are standard in most hotels such as a fan/vent and a toilet paper holder in the bathroom. The room was a rustic decor that was nothing special but it was clean and has had some updating. The mini blinds on the windows did not seem to provide complete... More

I had dinner here twice, while in the area. The view, when it's clear weather, is fabulous! You can sit out on a deck, or inside by the window. The service was very friendly and checked back often. The food was good, with some nice beer selections. There is a full bar, and wine list as well.

We went to dinner because the restaurant was supposed to be special. It started out to be very pleasant but tried out to be one of the worst meals we have ever had. Not because the meal was bad but because a business owner had little or no sense of what it takes to run a business. Our table was... More

The flavors in their food are incredible! Had Seared Scallops and spinach mushroom risotto and it was out of this world! Also had the Chix-Ham Marsala. Loved everything. Portions are very generous. Desert was Crème Brule and Pumpkin cheesecake. We took lots in our to go boxes and ate every bite. Could have licked the container.

Jackalopes is the on-site restaurant for the Archers Mountain Inn (renamed Jakalope too). Both are under new ownership. While we spent a three-night stay and had a delightful time. We dined two nights at the restaurant. Our experience was wonderful. The staff treated us very well and seemed truly eager to help us have a good time. The menu was... More

We have never been to Jackalopes but its not for lack of trying. We have a summer home in Banner Elk and our friends who also have a home there also left several messages on their recorder. We were trying to make a reservation for 4 for dinner but no one ever returned any of our messages. Frankly, we just... More

Friday evening my husband and I stopped at Jackalope's View at 4:55pm, they start serving dinner at 5pm. We sat outside on the deck, the weather was perfect. We enjoyed the new appetizer, the cheese plate, it was great with Smoked Gouda, Brie, Cabrales, Crusty bread slices, Genoa Salami, Prosciutto wrapped asparagus, Olive relish, Almonds, Pickled onion rings and sliced...

We were in town for an event and had Sunday Brunch....the weather and views were jaw dropping,especially if you sit on the terrace with a Bloody Mary. The brunch menu was weird...small fruit and salad section which was fresh and tasty. The entrees were sauce laden...even the scrambled eggs came with fruit crepes with creamy sauce....no healthy or low carb... More
