OK, be warned, the decor is dated, but don't let that sway you. The views are fantastic, patio seating is available fcfs. The wait staff are very attentive and will check in on you even if you're not their table. The food is wide ranging in offerings, well prepared, and reasonably priced. We had a standard entry - burger - and a special -trout. Both were well prepared, served hot, and tasty. We ordered an app of nachos that were a little light on fixings but pretty cheaply priced. They also have a killer selection of local and micro brews. Overall well worth the trip.

food was OK at best. the building was awful, old dingy, floor dangerous for disable or elderly. where our table was located all we could smell was food cooking and what smelled like mildew coming from a stairwell. our server apologized for being tipsy she said she was called in on the day off the proceeded to flirt with my teenage son. well for the cost of meals there they should probably close for a bit of renovations i don't see how the can pass health codes

If you are looking for a great, very casual brunch in Blowing Rock this is your restaurant! There is absolutely nothing fancy about this place. Come as you are and expect to wait! That is because everyone else wants to dine here too and enjoy the incredible views! It is worth it!

The service is good...can be a little slow but it's super busy- every table is occupied so that is to be expected for a great cooked to order meal. Our server was attentive and pleasant, and her recommendations were spot on!

There were three of us...we ordered 2 omelets and the strawberry waffle special. All were delicious, as were the breakfast potatoes (be sure to ask for a side of ranch as our server Campbell suggested- so GOOD!)

There was an awesome jazz band playing- just loud enough to enjoy great music without making it hard to have conversation.

We will definitely be back!

Canyons is a great place to have a bite to eat in the Blowing Rock area. While the building is indeed a little dated, we love to sit on the patio and enjoy a nice dinner while watching the beautiful Blue Ridge mountains. Sunsets here are amazing and are a regular for us at Canyons while we are in the area! The food is great too and the staff is very friendly! Very diverse menu and great daily specials!

My overall rating is for the view mostly, and the nice, friendly and enjoyable Alexis at the bar who was very good and took great care of us for a couple of hours. Didn't have food, other than chips and salsa. The decor would probably deter most from visiting here, but the deck that overlooks the mountains is hard to beat, and other reviews seem to back me up on this. It was raining but they also have a view from one of the back dining areas, that unfortunately looks like someone cleaned out a storage room and put tables in it. Again, the view trumps the decor.
