We went over Labor Day Weekend and it was pretty busy. We had to part in the satellite lot, but the buses ran continuously. It's definitely too far to walk especially in the humidity. We went around back right away and it wasn't too crowded....More

Ole Cheese... Mayo with a hot pepper cheese would be my best guess. But don't quote me on that 😊

Western North Carolina is known for its love of food and passion for great craft beer. At our Mills River Taproom and Restaurant you’ll find an abundance of both. Visit the Taproom to sample one of our 23 beers on tap, many produced just a few feet from the restaurant. Beers are accompanied by artful, chef-driven food focused on small plate, sharable, whole animal and farm-to-table dishes sourced mainly from local suppliers. We are a first come, first serve restaurant. Please feel free to stop by the host stand to put your name on the list, or grab a beer and head outside to our Back Porch and Beer Garden to take in the views of the beautiful forest or stroll through our Mills River Estate Garden. We use the homegrown vegetables and herbs for our restaurant and small-scale pilot brewery.
