After arriving into town and walking around shopping, we decided to give Genny's a try. Glad we did. We had the Country steak and Gravy special, fried chicken, and chili/Cole slaw burger. The country steak was a real not frozen machine made steak that tasted very good along with the gravy on top.The home made potato salad was just that...home made and also very good. The hush puppies ( my own personal taste ) were outstanding and the BEST I have found from anywhere West coast,Texas, to East coast. Maybe the combo of a hint of garlic and cooked in peanut oil is what did it but am definitely going back tomorrow to try those crab patties! Oh and the Okra is also good. My one son liked his burger because of course it is just not anything served anywhere else. My other son is a chicken connoisseur and really liked that fresh cooked, moist great tasting crust fried chicken. The hot apple pie a la mode was easy to finish off a wonderful experience sitting outside and listening to the sound of the rushing water of the stream below. Also the staff is very friendly, but a word of warning! Even when your bill is placed inside that mason jar, you had better secure it better than that! A hard gust of wind hit and carried our bill straight to the stream and away it floated Ha ha.Enjoy!

Te view from the back porch is very nice. The food is average. Canned or over cooked veggies and canned fruit. The pulled pork is good and the local fresh fish. Good place for a meat and Potatoes kind of guy. A vegetarian will not be too happy.

The view was wonderful. It was nice to sit outside while eating and watch the water rush by....the food, well, not so nice. My idea of Country Fried Steak was not Banquet salisbury steak. The food was not that good in my opinion.

We stumbled into this restaurant after walking around the shops in Chimney Rock. It is an older restaurant with traditional home cooking. We had the country fried steak special and the blackberry cobbler. Plenty of food and the waitress was amazing.
