I enjoyed the decor of the restaurant, but it seemed a little out of place for a mountain location. The food was good, so nothing to complain about. Service was good as well.

The food is always great and specials really are special... not leftovers from the day before. From the wait staff to the chef, everyone it's making sure your meal is the best.

We enjoyed Sunday brunch at The Painted Fish Cafe. The menu offered unique entrees, salads, and desserts.I enjoyed a sweet potato waffle with strawberries and whipped cream and a salad with strawberries and mandrin oranges. My husband's favorite was the fried Oreos he had for dessert.

This is one of my favorite restaurants in the entire High Country area. The price is reasonable and their menu has a wide variety of items to please anyone from the dainty diner to those with the heartiest of appetites. I highly recommend it!

We had a great meal here. It's not fancy on the outside but the food was wonderful. The service was good and we had a very enjoyable dinner.
