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.

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.

Canyons was not the place to eat today. The hostess struggled to get us seated. He tried to get us to eat in the center of the dining area when we asked for a window seat with the view. The view is the #1 reason...More

A favorite of the locals, this offers good food and drinks and spectacular views down the gorge. Sit on the deck in good weather and enjoy. Also a great place to watch sporting events on tv.
