Food was good but when I went to pick up I had to go thru the bartender while the lady at the cash register fiddled her thumbs. Took about 10 minutes to get food that was ready and waiting...frustrating!!!

We ate here the first night in Banner Elk and I craved it the rest of the vacation but never made it back! It was very good and there were other menu items I wanted to try! I would definitely recommend eating here.
