Place to eat
Lakes End Grill and Marina
One of my favs...great food presentation and view of Lake Nantahala. Order the ribs and banana pudding. Outside seating viewing with a firepit to sit by to relax and listen to music. Alcohol is not served here, but it is worth visiting for sure.
Love the food here, plus the chance to rent what you need for a beautiful & fun adventure on the lake! Let me know if you decide to go, I have an inside tip!
After or before going to Wayah Bald this a great place to stop for a meal. The route to the restaurant is scenic and the view of Nantahala Lake from the back deck while eating great comfort food is relaxing and beautiful. Rental boats are also available. Address: 17838 Wayah Rd. Topton, NC 28781…
The diner at the Lakes End Marina is worth a visit. Great sweet potato fries and home cooked everything else. Easy to get to from the lake or road side.
“A short drive from The Old Campbell Farm, you can dig your own bucket of dirt from the side of the mountain and sift through it for rubies and sapphires.”
“See the beautiful Great Smoky Mountains from the top of the world!! Appalachian Trail crosses here!”
Point of Interest
“relaxed walk, bike or jog along the river, you can drop in kayak at the fairgrounds (nice small clear river) or along the river with lots of parks to pull out and enjoy a picnic, my favorite is all the way to Currahee Brewing company”
“We don’t usually eat Mexican food since my wife is sensitive to spicy foods. But, she loves their quesadillas. I enjoy their variety and the prices are very reasonable. Great place to meet friends. Address: 788 E Main St, Franklin, NC 28734 We have several other Mexican restaurants in the area we just haven’t tried them. ”
“We enjoy meeting here with friends for great BBQ. Their ribs are fantastic and when I order a side dish I always choose the baked beans. They have a wide variety of dishes. Hours are 11-9 Mon - Saturday. Reservations or walk in. ”
