Casual dining in high style
While there’s so much to see and do on Grandfather Mountain, sometimes view-gazing is most relished with a sandwich in your hand — or soup on your spoon. Mildred’s Grill can provide both, whether you choose to dine al fresco or watching the birds seek their seeds just outside our large picture windows.
The 140-seat Nature Museum Restaurant serves hot, tasty food at reasonable prices. You can order in advance so that your food is ready and waiting at a time that best fits into your schedule. If you travel with a large group, you may enjoy your meal in the restaurant or outside as a picnic, or reserve the private dining room. Lunch options at Mildred’s Grill include:

The Mountain has more than 100 picnic tables in scenic locations throughout the park, including a covered picnic area situated next to the Nature Museum. You’re welcome to bring a picnic, or our staff will be happy to prepare box lunches for you.
Open daily from 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
