- Cantaberry Restaurant: My personal favorite! Cantaberry Restaurant is a family-owned and operated restaurant that specializes in Southern comfort food. The menu features classic dishes like fried chicken, meatloaf, and country-style steak. Be sure to save room for dessert - the homemade pies are a must-try.

The restaurant offers a cozy atmosphere and a menu of classic American dishes, including burgers, sandwiches, and salads. The outdoor seating area is perfect for enjoying the beautiful mountain scenery. Ian and I really enjoy their burgers.
