My husband stopped in for a bite after spending some time in Chimney Rock Village. They advertise home cooking but it was not home cooking at all. Half of my food was cool, not cold but not hot. The outside seating really needs some adjustments. The tables were not cleaned and the restrooms need some repairs. Unfortunately, would not return

My wife and I stopped in here to eat after spending the day at chimney rock State Park. We sat outside by the stream and enjoyed a very good meal. The food was served quickly and the staff were very friendly. I would not hesitate to come back again. Also, I loved sitting beside the stream. It was very relaxing.

Afternoon led us here for a late lunch. We ate outside on the deck, and although the new railing blocks the river view a bit, I understand why it had to be added. Had fried flounder, hamburger steak and hot dogs. All were very good. Home cooked food. Service was a bit slow, but there was the hiring sign and... More

Good solid food at a reasonable price. Not extra special, but good. Plus everyone working there is very nice and helpful. They are hard workers you can tell.

When we visit Chimney Rock, we usually eat at Genny's Family Restaurant. This last time we visited, there was a "Help Wanted" sign on the door. And yes, they did need help. Service was VERY slow. Also,our server started out as one person, and ended up being someone else toward the end of our lunch. That is not a big... More

There was 5 of us girls. We got seated. Service was slow. I ordered grits eggs toast liver mush. I am not sure if it is the butter or grease. I did not care for breakfast. It was very pricey paid 12.34 for breakfast.

Arrived at 12:30pm to have a casual lunch. No one was there! The place was empty. We stood at the front for about ten minutes before someone finally came out from behind. She said we could sit anywhere, but we would get our food for at least 45 minutes after we ordered. Huh? They were empty. No explain action given.... More

The big draw to this place was sitting on the outdoor patio overlooking the stream, but they have put up lattice to block the view. Unless you get there right when they open, you will not be guaranteed one of those tables anyway. After a 50 minute wait after ordering simple breakfast itetms, without the view, we tended to concentrate... More
