The Bluffs is closed for the season

The road to reopening The Bluffs Restaurant has been a long journey, and we thank you for supporting the project every step of the way.


We are so grateful we were able to press ahead with renovations in 2020, because this work will allow The Bluffs to welcome back diners in the spring.


At that time, we hope to host a grand reopening under much more favorable circumstances. Check back here and follow us on Facebook and Instagram for updates.


Our deepest thanks for your patience and understanding!

Our Story

The coffee shop at Doughton Park on the Blue Ridge Parkway welcomed generations of locals and travelers during its original 61 years of operation. Thanks to the support of those devoted patrons and many others, The Bluffs will reopen in the spring of 2021 to welcome diners once again for great home-style cooking.
