The food consistence and quality is horrible!! Fatty, overdone steaks and prime rib. Take out orders are almost always wrong. VERY poor quality control in the kitchen. The wait staff and management are great.

The staff were genuinely friendly and efficient. The steaks were tasty and cooked as requested. The off street parking was ample and the restaurant is kept clean and tidy.

If you are in Blowing Rock during the peak leaf color change season; this is a good place to eat to get away from the crowds on the main Blowing Rock tourist street. This is just like the Outback in your hometown.
