Woodsy interior, warm, cozy. Very good local brewed beer from Asheville, and the rainbow trout was good but make sure you have it broiled not cajun blackened.

One word: trustworthy. You know what you'll get for very reasonable prices. Good service, great food, neat mountain-themed atmosphere. Full bar and lively customer base. This place stays busy for a reason.
