Came here with my husband for lunch. The salads we order with chicken were fresh and tasty and huge portions. Baked potato was cooked perfectly and the waitstaff was really attentive. The view of the mountains was gorgeous! The only minor issue was that the...More

Stopped by after visiting the Blowing Rock. Just an average lunch with a great view. Had a kids menu and the food was okay. The bread on the Reuben was so hard that I cut my mouth several times.

For us, this is a favorite. As a global traveler, Canyons is an ideal mix of great people (the owner seems to know everyone!) some of the best views on the continental divide and nice southern hospitality. They are close to downtown - shopping, hiking...More

Great brunch with live jazz. Had snowed the night before. Very historic place. View over the mountains is the best there is.

Beautiful views but the food is underwhelming. Probably the best canyon view in Blowing Rock but the food is more like low end bar type food and the service is spotty.

Place seemed runned down and dirty upon arrival, but I kept an open mind because of some of the reviews. Service and food were terrible. Would not suggest to anyone and will not return. One of us has celiac and the menu said they had...More

Cooper was the best server. We were blessed to get a table near the window. We asked Cooper how long the restaurant had been there and he said 17 new manager. The building had been there since the 30s. Even having once been a brothel....More

The view here is spectacular. We arrived early, around 445 and hung onto our table through dinner and drinks until we caught the sunset. Burgers were very good. The beer list is ok but not overwhelming. They had Bell's Two Hearted Ale which is always...More
