Classic Car & Biker Night



an absolute gem!

This place is an absolute gem! The food is delicious. My partner and I both got the house New York strip and it was honestly some of the best steak we’ve ever had. Melt in your mouth good. We took our leftovers and heated it up on the grill – almost as yummy as it was at the restaurant!! For the cheap prices they give you HUGE portions too! Our server was extremely sweet and attentive as well. All the staff seemed very kind and had a smile on their face. An all over amazing experience and we will be returning often!

Come for the food

Come for the food, stay for the hospitality and the scenery. I enjoy driving and finding new places. The Mountain Aire Seafood and Steaks Restaurant proved to be a welcome surprise with its excellent choices in seafood. I ordered the salt and pepper catfish with fries and sweet tea. The catfish was super tasty and the crust was unbelievably crunchy with the perfect blend of herbs and spices. The fries and tea rounded out my meal and my check was very reasonable. Needless to say my dog Bruster was happy to see the doggie bag.
As I paid my bill, the owner made some hiking suggestions so I took off sightseeing on the Blue Ridge Parkway.

My family used to eat here

My family used to eat here many years ago. Now my children are grown and we came back to celebrate a birthday. We enjoyed the variety of food and will be back when we return to the mountains.
