Description: Start the day off right with one of our signature biscuits, which are named after the places folks love to visit in the region. Whether you want a Bearwallow Bacon, Egg and Cheese Biscuit or a savory Florence Preserve Biscuits, we have something for you every Saturday and Sunday. During lunch, enjoy a local grassfed burger, grilled sandwiches, salads and fresh baked fruit cobblers at this down-to-earth diner located at the entrance to Chimney Rock State Park. Relax outdoors on the riverside deck with a great view of Chimney Rock and the Rocky Broad River rushing by. Try one of the local craft brews or sip on a glass of wine. Check out the memorabilia of the "Rock" covering the walls for a glimpse of what life was like here over the past 100 years.

“Perfect meal right after a morning visiting Chimney Rock.”
Reviewed 22 March 2014

Great location just outside the Park gates. Very friendly staff and a nice selection on the menu plus a variety of local craft beers. Patio offers great view of the river and multiple decks to eat on even right down by the water. Great Chimney Rock Restaurant.

“Best Chicken Salad Pita!”
Reviewed 8 March 2014 via mobile

Every time we go to Chimney Rock, I want to go back for their yummy Chicken Salad Pita Wrap. Hubby had grilled cheese and tomato soup and said it was great too. Great fries as well. Beautiful deck views of the river.
