Our peaceful Lakeside Dining Room, with its fireplace and breathtaking views, is guaranteed to lower your blood pressure. The floor to ceiling windows allow for unobstructed views of the lake and mountains, giving guests the feel of being on an Alpine retreat.
We also offer a bar menu which is a more casual setting in our mansion bar. The mansion bar bar snacks from 2:00pm - 10:00pm Monday through Sunday

About the restaurant

Sometimes the magic of sharing a table with friends over fabulous food and wonderful wine can be elevated by a place. Canyon Kitchen has that impact. Canyon Kitchen uses local produce and organic selections from our own community gardens and the surrounding area to source our creative Appalachian cuisine. Our multi-course menu is offered a la carte and will change regularly, sometime daily, and is enhanced by an extensive wine list and fresh, seasonal cocktails. A $40 corkage fee will be charged for bottles up to 750ml.

We recommend that all parties arrive 30-45 minutes before their reservation to take in our beautiful meadow. Reservations are subject to a $25 per person credit card hold that will only be charged if you cancel within 24 hours of reservation.

20% service charge is added automatically to each check to be distributed amongst our front line staff. We thank you in advance.

About the restaurant
EDISON, craft ales + kitchen is an inventive bar and restaurant that brings together the food culture and local flavors of downtown, with expansive indoor and outdoor seating and spectacular views of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Named for frequent historical visits from Thomas Edison and his "Vagabonds" (Edison, Harvey Firestone and Henry Ford), EDISON serves NC craft beers, small batch bourbons, handcrafted cocktails, and regionally inspired food in a contemporary, fun, and artistic setting.

Several renowned artists who celebrate the creativity of the area and call this community home are showcased in the indoor dining room, offering our patrons a true Asheville experience. The jalapeno bacon wrapped bison meatloaf crafted by Chef Michael Pupillo is a must try !

Our waitress, Lindsey, was gracious and helpful explaining menu items, and we enjoyed her sense of humor. Food was delicious and some unique items ( jalapeño bacon wrapped bison meatloaf) were a hit. Views were awesome, and the hallway outside the restaurant was filled with portraits of famous patrons. Only wish the gift shop had been open.
