Terrible food and dirty. Bad service. The only good part of the restaurant was the outdoor seating. The building now houses the Town Tavern - which is wonderful.

Enjoyed at lunch at MK's very much. Wings were delicious and prices were very reasonable. Burgers were so big that my husband and I will definite split one the next time we are there. Atmosphere was relaxing, staff was pleasant, and music was great! Will definitely visit MK's the next time we are in Blowing Rock!

Now known as MK's comfort food, don't let the name change fool you. The sanitation rating is not great and the food is only passable. The french onion soup came with a slice of processed cheese floating on top that never did melt. The fries were frozen, reconstituted mush. The hamburgers were previously frozen thin patties. Despite several space heaters and a fire, it was cold. The only bright spot was the sunny disposition of our waitress.
I wish we had bought from the grocery store and cooked at home for the money.

The patio is inviting and pleasant. We ordered a salmon cake sandwich and the catfish platter. Both were OK, not bad, but nothing special. Service was a slow and it wasn't very busy.

Stopped here for lunch during the Hurricane Sandy blizzard. No waiting, service was attentive and congenial. We decided to share the soup of the day which was a potato and bell pepper soup and the fried green tomato bot with sweet potato fries. Service was exceptionally considerate. The blt was split onto two separate plates along with what seemed to be full portions of fries on each plate. The soup was presented with two spoons. We have to say that everything we ate was excellent. In particular the sweet potato fries were the best we've ever had and the soup was so flavourful we could not spoil it with crackers. Nice selection of local draft beers. We were very surprised to read the recent bad reviews.
