Genny’s Family Restaurant
451 Main Street
Chimney Rock, NC
Having hit Waynesville the day before, Dad and I thought we should find another nearby, cute town for lunch on Friday. I looked at a county map, picked Rutherford County, and figured out that we ought to go to Chimney Rock. It’s a pretty, easy drive from Asheville, and we already knew there were cute stores and cafes by the gate into the Chimney Rock State Park.
We took my parents’ dog with us, so we found a place on Main Street that allowed dogs in their outside eating area. Actually, I think Genny’s was the only one. It has a couple tables in a fenced in area for people with dogs. I was actually surprised it was the only place set up for dogs since dogs are welcome in the park and the best way to lunch is to sit outside by the river. Anyway, we got settled in, placed our order with a friendly waitress, and listened to the river while we waited.
Our food took a little while, especially considering the place wasn’t that busy and we didn’t order anything complicated. I got a hamburger, fries, and a biscuit, and Dad got breakfast. It wasn’t particularly special, but it was good. I’d go again.
You’ll notice that the dog isn’t in the picture. She apparently decided that the sound of the camera freaker her out that day. lol After lunch, we took a stroll along the river. There’s a very short little path there that has a nice view of Chimney Rock.
And I snagged my county sign pic on the way home.
