We had a less than positive experience here. We had a group of 10. The wait was horrendous, but the biggest issue was communication. One of our group ended up finding a manager that got things moving. Even after we got seated, the food came out at drastically different times. The food was decent but did not live up to... More

We had a really long wait and we had to ask for everything, the server even forgot our drinks at the bar by the time it made it to our table the pitcher of margaritas was water down.

Margaritas and chicken tacos were very good. Everything was fresh and service was perfect. Guacamole was my favorite! We will be back !

We ended up eating here with a group of friends after we found out the wait at Foxfire and Cheat Mountain were going to exceed an hour. The wait was a half an hour at Sunset Cantina, but I wish we had waited somewhere else. The service was terribly slow and the food itself was very sub par. The chicken... More

Not worth the long wait, the bad customer service from waitstaff, and the food is just OK...Just some advice for this restaurant: This is a vacation spot, you are gonna be busy, that does not mean that the waitstaff can get away with not checking on customers in timely manner. Also, take responsibility for when you make a mistake, it... More

We had the Fajita's and the Mahi tacos with chips and salsa. Both were very good. Quick service and a nice meal.

I wish there was something positive that I could say about this meal, but the wait was long, the service was slow, and the server was the worst of all. I cannot remember the last time I rated a dining establishment this low! It seemed like everyone at the bar was happy, though. Guess it takes a few drinks to... More

This was awful. I ordered the Cantina Nachos and they were so salty they had to be sent back when they returned they were equally as salty it was due to the beef being salty. Overall noones food was good.

We were up for our first night in Snowshoe and went in with a party of 4 without a reservation. Although the said a 40 min wait, they seated us MUCH more quickly. Both our Bartender and Server were really friendly, the food was great, and very affordable (compared to prices in Washington, DC where we live.)

We love to wait at the bar, have a drink and chat up other patrons. The staff are all amazing. This time we had burritos but the Texas Tortas was beyond words. Really rich though.
