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.

We have been told by a lot of people this is the best place to eat in Blowing Rock. We have been twice and we're not impressed. The service was fair as well as the food. I would not recommend this place to eat.

We stopped for lunch to get out of the wind and enjoy the view. The food was very good and the view was better. Our waitress was very good and took good care of us. The fresh chips were very good.

Drove over from Banner Elk to have lunch. Have wanted to try Canyons while visiting the high country. Again, we were there for one hour and five minutes. In all fairness we asked for a Terrance table and that would be an extra wait, which...More

First of all, let me say my party of 15 had a great time at Canyons - but that's because we were celebrating a special weekend AND because we had to wait so long for our food that we kept drinking and drinking! (although definitely...More
