Bit of a long shot, but any recommendations for the Lake Lure/ Chimney Rock area?
This is second hand, but there is a review on...
of Old Rock Cafe at Chimney Rock. Doesn't sound exactly like a "must try", but the setting sounds nice. If that link doesn't take you directly there, go to "our favorite restaurants" and click on it from there.
For not miss food...drive into Asheville...see the many Asheville post here on Chowhound.
