The Ridgline Restaurant

About The Ridgeline...

The Ridgeline Food & Spirits, formerly known as Canyon's Restaurant,  is a family owned and operated restaurant which was purchased from previous owner, Bart Conway, by Richard and Faisuly Scheurer in February of 2018.  

While Rich and Faisuly fell in love with the building and its history, it was the breathtaking view of all the mountains they have hiked with their 2 daughters, Alex and Sarah over the last 10 years that initially attracted them to this location. Located on the edge of Blowing Rock, the building offers amazing views of the iconic John's River Gorge as well as of Grandmother and Grandfather mountains, Table Rock and Hawk's Bill.  On a clear day you can see as far away as Mt. Mitchel in Asheville!

Taking to heart the colorful history of the building and the High Country in general, Faisuly, who is passionate about art, history and great food, set about to create a vision for the new space that would celebrate all three in unison.  This is how The Ridgeline was born!

It's eclectic interior celebrates the mountain rustic with the understated sophistication brought by the many families that have made Blowing Rock their home over the generations.  Mirroring this dichotomy is our mountain menu with that global twist... From chicken wings to shrimp scampi and everything in between, we are proud to serve fresh, local ingredients and non-hormone, all-natural fish, chicken and beef.  

To bring this all together, Rich set out to create a list of fun, unique cocktails, a thoughtful and varied wine list as well as a locally/regionally emphasized beer list.

From our family to yours....we welcome you to our new "home" in the latest incarnation of a building that has seen many different transformations. We want you to come, enjoy a great meal, a fun cocktail and  create new memories with friends and loved ones...become a part of our story...and join us in celebrating Blowing Rock and the High Country!
