Good food, wide variety of choices, creative/local menu, friendly staff, great atmosphere (we ate outside looking at Chimney Rock), awesome prices. While I have never eaten anywhere else at Chimney Rock Medina's seems like the best option- an authentic restaurant in an otherwise pretty "touristy" town.

My daughter and I must eat gluten-free and Medina's was highly recommended to us by Kerri, the host of Arbor Cabins (where we stayed). The restaurant is very small even with some outdoor seating and it doesn't look like much. But we gave it a chance. We tried lunch first--had the buffalo chicken dip, chef salad, and my daughter had a sandwich on GF bread. Everything was SOOO good! Our last evening in town, we decided to go back to Medina's for dinner. We tried the spinach artichoke dip (also a winner), then we both ordered the Chicken Mediterranean dish which came with mashed potatoes and a vegetable medley. Not only was the presentation worthy of a much more expensive restaurant, the meal was delicious! So glad we were introduced to this gem!!

We ate breakfast here on our last day in Chimney Rock and it was very good. The food was excellent and fresh. There were 8 of us and everyone was happy and full for our travels back home. We will be going back to Chimney Rock for a longer stay and the Medina's will be our first dinner stop.

Have eaten there many times. The food is always excellent. Even if you have to wait it is worth it.
The Chicken salad is outstanding. They incorporate many local vegetables. Love all of their homemade soups. New lunch specials every day. We eat there at least twice a week. Service and personal attention could not be better.
