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.

This was a great little cafe right outside the prk -- our rock climbing guide recommended it, and for good reason. The food was fresh, fast, and the outdoor patio was really nice, overlooking a rocky creek with a view of Chimney Rock park. My husband and kids had the burgers, and they thought they were pretty good. I had the club, and it was terrific -- and the house made parmesan chips were really delicious. Service was friendly and quick -- will definitely lunch here again when we come back to the area.

Our food was served quickly and was very good. Sitting on the deck looking at the river and the chimney rock made for great atmosphere.

We got the hamburger and corn dog specials. Was very fast and friendly. We had done a lot of hiking, and this hit the spot.

the wife and I had lunch after going to chimney rock park. We were welcomed when we arrived and given a menu. You have to go the the counter to order but they bring the food to you. I had the reuben and my wife had the chicken salad. Both were very good. you can sit inside or on the deck overlooking the creek.

Wife and in laws checked out Old Rock Cafe.. Overall the food was pretty good. I had the buffalo Chicken sandwich, and some of the fried green tomato's they were delicious. Definitely worth checking out. My brother had the burger and he said it was delicious.
