We went to Canyons for our 34th anniversary. It has a great history, good food, and a beautiful view. Very friendly staff, and music entertainment at night. Great experience.

Such an incredible view overlooking the blue ridge parkway. A great porch to have lunch & a drink. Really nice crafted beers (I don't drink beer but I had great one there!)
