A great place to go when you’re in Asheville. The entrees are a bit expensive but the fried okra is ahhhhmazing, so it’s worth it. More

Was somewhat disappointed on our first visit since remodeling. The refreshed interior looked nice but renovations seem to have increased the noise level considerably. Our server was not well acquainted with the new menu and had to frequently go to ask someone else basic questions. I had a burger as that is a Monday special. The special does not include a side so selecting one, at a rather steep price, negatively affects the "special" pricing. The burger was ok but was over cooked and the added condiments were so cold that they almost neutralized the warmth of the burger. I ate it as it wasn't worth the trouble to send it back and wait for a replacement. I expect we will return in a few weeks and see if the bugs have been worked out as we have been customers since the restaurant originally opened. More

My family has a home in the area, and every year we look forward to dining at The Canyon Kitchen. It's been a tradition for years. Highly recommend going early, enjoying the view and a cocktail to start off with. You can't go wrong with this jewel ! One of a kind. More
