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

Canyons has a great view of Grandfather Mt. The bar is a wonderful friendly place! Kristen is one of the great attentive bartenders! The Duck Burger when on special is great! Order the Nachos!

The only reason to go here is the view. Filthy restaurant and mediocre food. If the public parts of the restaurant is this bad, I can't imagine what the kitchen looks like. Many good restaurants in Blowing Rock- skip this one.

The food, the view, and the Sunday Jazz Brunch made my meal a trifecta! Also, the deck seating is dog-friendly. I had trout and eggs and it was delicious. Trout is a tricky fish to prepare because it's a thin fillet and is easy to...More

I'll agree with a lot of the real reviews about the food and atmosphere. What a shame!! The lot it's on is amazing. From inside, the best views are basically by the doors to the restroom...??? I'm going to need someone out in TripAdvisor land...More
