Upon arrival in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains, you find your way upon this upscaled lodge with a local feel. The beer list has their staple beers, as well as a few new ones they are trying. You can go for a goblet of your favorite higher gravity brew, or test a few different options. The downside to doing a beer flight is their limitations of two different types, and you can't mix and match; limitations on a tasters palate. The food is cooked and prepared in house, the old fashion smoked taste carries through all of their dishes, and is a must. They have a smoke platter that has been plenty for my husband and I (and more), on many occasions. On this smoke platter you get baked beans, corn hash, chicken, smoked turkey, bacon and a local sausage link. They put a disclaimer in their menu that you can not make any substitutions. I understand on the meats with more fuller portions, but there are a lot who do not care for sausage, taste, greasiness, and the casing on the outside. So to pay for something you won't eat and can not sub out, yet want to try all they have to offer, it is disappointing. Great view and place to visit for local brews and food. Do not recommend sitting at the bar, the bartender is a young lady who may know a lot about the beer, but has a poor customer service attitude, and is very short in her responses. This is one of my bigger complaints and given the time of day we visited (a beautiful warm summer day) we would hope for a personality that reflects the astounding local view and feel of the establishment, yet she reflected a damper, sour feel (one you might expect on a rainy depressing day). With that said, the beer is great, the food is fantastic (with large portions for the $), and well worth the visit!
