|The Mountaineer Restaurant overlooks Soco Gap and Sheepback Mountain. Built on 3 acres of beautiful property at approximately 3,800ft. elevation, we have an awesome view of the mountains and are located two miles west of Ghost Town and just below the Nine Story Tower. We can spot the back side of Catalochee Ski Resort and the roller coaster at Ghost Town! It is just beautiful, giving us the “Home of the Million Dollar View”.The restaurant has been in operation since the 60’s, with the original building built in the 30’s, making us one of several legends on the mountain. The interior is cozy and friendly, with tongue and groove pine floors, ceiling and walls. We have a wood burning fireplaces for the chilly winter days and all of our skiing and tubing friends.
These are just a couple of the great attractions located right in our backyard!
The Blue Ridge Parkway is only 1.5 miles away, making us a great destination for summer and winter travelers and motorcycle enthusiasts! Serving everything from peanut butter and jelly to Surf and Turf, we are family oriented and affordable. We serve Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner, will pack you a picnic lunch and even provide the picnic basket, cater your affair or host your party!
We pride ourselves on Great Food, Great View, and Nice People. We’re “just up the Hill, but worth the drive” so come up and see us!
