Join us starting Friday, May 20.

We can't wait to welcome you back to the The Bluffs! We will reopen on Friday, May 20. This year, we’ve made a few adjustments to our schedule:

  • Open Monday through Thursday from 10:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. for lunch and dinner.

  • Open Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

  • Breakfast and lunch will be served first come, first serve (no reservations required). We will take reservations for dinner, but they are not required.  We’re offering evening reservations because we know many of you make long drives to dine with us. To make sure we have enough time to prepare the best meal for you, our last seating reservations will be at 7:30 p.m. 

  • Parties of 10 or more are asked to make reservations in advance for any meal.

See you soon! – Sharon Pinney & Chef John Gamradt

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.
