Best View in Blowing Rock....and that's about it

The view was amazing, especially for winter in the mountains, which is why my husband and I finally decided to stop and try the food. We went on a Sunday and there was live music which was a plus. Our waitress, I think her name was Ashley, was great; she was honest about menu suggestions, quick and efficient, and immediately returned with anything we requested. She was conversational and knowledgable about local shops and attractions. My husband ordered fish and chips which was incredibly greasy and somewhat bland. No salt or seasoning was used, just oil. I got a chicken and spinach burrito which was served in a cold tortilla; the food inside was as bland as the flour tortilla and it hardly resembled a burrito. The inside of the place could use some updating (the floors are uneven and somewhat disgusting) but our waitress let us know the building is almost a hundred years old so its understandable. As we were leaving an older guy with white hair, who I think was a manager or owner, was seemingly drunk and berating his employees at the front desk/entrance; it was extremely tacky to do in front of customers. I couldn't help feeling sorry for the employees. He was basically degrading the poor girls in public. The view was spectacular and the service was great; the food was barely edible and the manager/owner was offensive and unprofessional...can't see myself going back there

all it's got is a veiw

Location location location....the veiw is really cool , but the rest of our experience was pretty poor. not enough room in the dining room, had to eat in the bar. Listened to cussing employees, and I believe a rather inebriated owner?...very rude old guy with white hair running around acting like an AS#$%@^. Food was bad, overcooked and bland. Waitress was awesome though, told us about several neat things to do on our visit. Next time I'll just stop and take pictures from the parking lot like we saw several other people doing.

Someone Obviously Has No Sense....

Whoever wrote the last review of Canyons obviously has no sense of smell or taste. NCSkier has given a rather incorrect and unfair portrait of one of Blowing Rock's dining cornerstones. My family and I eat in the area often and have found that Canyons is one of the only places in Blowing Rock where we can satisfy the whole family; there really is something for everyone, young and old, whether its been a regular menu item or a nightly special. (On the one occasion when my son, a picky eater by nature, was not pleased with his food, it was promptly taken care of by their extremely hospitable staff) The drinks are reasonably priced and actually contain alcohol, something that most area bars haven't quite gotten the hang of yet. For any "tourist" who wants an experience wrapped in rich, colorful history, read the menu; it offers a detailed history of the building which any employee there can elaborate on--I've asked several. And Canyons is now a smoke-free dining atmosphere, just like every other place to eat in the state of North Carolina, so anyone not wanting to eat in a smoky building can do that there as well.

Avoid Canyons - Bad food and too smoky

Canyons is a tourist trap. The food is awful. We ate there on a Saturday night. I ordered a cheeseburger and my friend ordered the chimichanga. We also ordered the spinach dip. The cheeseburger was overcooked on a cold, untoasted bun. The fries were not good. My friend's chimichanga was filled mostly with rice. The spinach dip was burned. This was one of the worst meals I have had in a long time. The atmosphere is incredibly smoky. You and your clothes will reek of smoke when you leave. Skip this place if you want good food and a smoke-free atmosphere.
