A wonderful place to stop and feel like you're in the mountains(you are!!). Great selection of sadnwiches different from the fast-food ones. Several slendid salads as well, and generous portions on super deserts! Great service-with-a-smile, and grab an ice cream or some home made fudge on your way out the door! Just feet from Caesar's Head overlook too!

Winding our way up Highway 276 at lunch time we decided to stop at this unpretentious but beautiful rustic stone building that had a busy parking lot. We were seated immediately and served quickly some of the freshest, most reasonably priced food that we had on our trip. The family run restaurant is frequented by locals who know the family on a first name basis. It is obvious that they have a policy to serve their customers more than has been bargained for. Even our two scoops of ice cream turned out to be a much larger portion. My wife and I were thrilled with our good fortune.

I ordered the $25 Filet Mignon and when it arrived the entre consisted on 2 small slices (1/4 inch thick) of meat. I thought there had been some sort of mistake, but the waitress said that the filet is supposed to be 3 ounces. Later, the manager brought me a single additional slice which was a nice gesture. But still, I had just 3 bites of meat for this meal! It was delicious, but not nearly enough.

They should have indicated the portion size on the menu. I surely would have ordered something else.

We also brought our own wine, but their set-up fee was $15 per bottle, much higher than most restaurants.

Good food, but bad value.

This out-of-the-way little eatery, located atop Cesar's Head on US-276 in upper Greenville County, South Carolina, is one of those gems, perhaps often missed because of it's plainness and simplicity. Open for lunch Tuesday thru Sunday and dinner Thursday thru Saturday, this place offers a comfortable mountain atmosphere and quality fare. Lunch is limited to sandwiches, salads, burgers and hotdogs but dinner offers quality, full-service meals which vary weekly to availability. This is a small little place (10 or so tables) and dinner reservations are certainly recommended though if you were driving by and wished to stop, I'd certainly try.
Our service was good but this night was not a fair assessment of it. Prices were comparable with nice restaurants in nearby towns. The salmon was $18 and the tenderloin $26 and this included a very nice green salad. They serve wine and beer but no hard liquor. The wine list was varied enough to please most. For a very small restaurant, far from sources and other choices, this is a really nice little place which I will return to and wish well.
