Mildred’s Grill

Mildreds Grill

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.

Mildred’s Grill hours change seasonally.

  • I just wanted to say that Grandfather Mountain is truly one of the most beautiful places to visit! Last year on a vacation to the Apple Festival in Wilkesboro, my fiancee decided that the Mile High Swinging Bridge would be the perfect place to pop the question! We were half way across when he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him! It was beautiful!
