Overall the food was very good and the menu had something for everyone. The fried asparagus was especially tasty as were the french fries. Would love to try the lodge menu next visit.

We have been going to the Banner Elk Café for many years, have always enjoyed it, has a wide variety of foods that are good. The service staff has always welcomed us and our two Shiloh Shepherds with open arms. It was a place that had covered outdoor seating so when it rained or snowed it was great to take our so well trained Shiloh Shepherds. Apparently they had one misbehaved dog which the owners should have been asked to leave. Because of this incident they have punished all of the dog owners that go there saying no more dogs except the very small area that is not covered. When I talked to the owner's wife she was not pleasant at all and as a result my family and all of the friends that we would bring there will no longer return. Such a mistake for one unfortunate incident to take it out on all of the others that have supported them.

Easy to locate restaurant and parking. Excellent food, pricing and friendly wait staff. We will return to this restaurant whenever we come to Banner Elk to see our grand-daughter play soccer at Lees McCrae College.

Pleasant service and good, moderately priced food. Nothing fancy here. Have visited several times and received consistent quality food and service.

While staying in Newland for a couple of months, we had the opportunity to frequent the Banner Elk Café for lunch and dinner. The wait staff is extremely friendly and helpful. The food consistently good and cooked the way you want it. You can try anything and if you don't like it, change your mind and they are happy to bring you something else. You have access to two menus: the café and the lodge. Bring your pet and they have seating available for you. Music some nights outside. We never tried the menu from the lodge. A bit too much as we are light eaters.
Grandkids ages 5 and 17 both like it too.
