We had been to Jackalope's many years ago for lunch and when we saw they had Sunday brunch and we had company, I decided to make a reservation. I was extremely disappointed with the Brunch menu. The only thing different from their breakfast menu was that they were making omelets. I felt that we were ordering high priced diner food.... More

We happened to catch them at a very slow night, and were worried the food would be bad, but were pleasantly surprised. The food was good, fresh, and the corn bread soft and yummy.

My family and I ate at Jackalope's and loved it. The food was very satisfying and the staff friendly. We will definitely be stopping in next time we are in the area.

My fiancée and I were advised to grab a bite at the Jackalope Restaurant by a fellow hiker on Grandfather Mountain. We are so glad we took the advice of a stranger! It was about 10-15 minutes away from Grandfather Mountain's park entrance and we didn't get lost (he told us to find Beech Mountain)! Once we arrived the waitress... More

Stayed at the inn for three nights. The restaurant had just reopened. Easily the very best breakfast anywhere near near Beech; sweet potato pancakes, yum. The new menu is fabulous; real home cooking. Be sure to try the chicken and pastry and the mac and cheese. great stuff, and a good value.

Jackalope's has closed. It is being remodeled and will reopen under a new name and new owner/mgmt. We were told it should reopen sometime after Memorial Day.

One of the original restaurants on the mountain. The trout dinner is wonderful. Many other good choices. Very friendly management. Better to have a reservation.

We saw the online menu and were very excited to try a few items just to arrive and discover they had a new menu and to add they were out of chili and chicken which half of their new menu was dependent upon. We were very disappointed at the experience. Very small menu. The atmosphere was decent once you walk... More

For the high price, I was very dissapointed, Steak was tough, and kale was almost inedible, you can't mess up a potato, grocery store bread was like cardboard. Don't waste your money. But the view was nice.

We stopped there for lunch. The place was empty at 1PM, and they still only had breakfast items. The restaurant looked unkept. We ended up leaving and not ordering any food. I can't believe people gave this such a high rating!
