We visited Oak Steakhouse for our anniversary and it did not disappoint. We were greeted warmly upon arrival and they truly made us feel special on our special day. Our server, Kevin, was highly knowledgeable and attentive without being overbearing. Food was excellent as expected for a high end steakhouse. Surprisingly the oysters were the best I’ve ever had! Pastry chef was also exceptional. We will definitely be back.

The Rocky Face Tavern at Springdale Resort has become one of Western North Carolina's favorite destinations.

Under the direction of Page and Sid Truesdale, Haywood County natives, they have created a menu of Southern favorites and serve them in an ambiance that is both inviting and captivating.

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.
