Places to eat outside of the park?

My husband and I will be staying in the park at Skyland Resort for 2 days in October for our anniversary. We have stayed there before and have eaten at the restaurant there, so we know what to expect and will probably eat there on one of the nights, but we have never really ventured too far outside of the park. Can anyone recommend a good restaurant not too far off of Skyline Drive?

The Shenandoah kitchen in Luray has a wonderful brunch. It is a bit of a drive from skyland, you have to go north to Thorton gap then down the steep grade of route 211 to get there but it is a scenic drive. My wife loves the cheesecake french toast. I have heard that dinner reservations are required during leaf season.

This might be a little bit of a drive from where you are staying, but I really enjoyed the Baja Bean Company in Staunton (so at the southern end of Skyline Drive). Here's the link to the reviews:
