The restaurant at The Terrace Hotel has a new menu, new hours and new name - the Lakeside Bistro! We now have gift cards too! 

Southern cuisine with a modern twist comes with warm hospitality and spectacular lake and mountain views at the Lakeside Bistro. Located on the third floor of The Terrace hotel at Lake Junaluska, the Bistro offers casual indoor dining within the spacious restaurant and scenic outdoor dining on the patio overlooking the lake. The expansive dining room offers ample room for social distancing, and outdoor heaters enhance patio dining in cool weather. 

The menu features comforting, craveable starters, salads, shareable sides, entrees and desserts, many made from scratch and incorporating fresh ingredients across our entire menu — in season and locally sourced whenever feasible. Specials include historically favorite dishes from Lambuth Inn, creating a tapestry of both old and new flavors.

The Bistro offers an ideal setting for meaningful family gatherings as well as festive banquets, receptions and events. 

Before or after a meal, guests are invited to stroll the lakeside Rose Walk, explore Lake Junaluska’s many gardens or enjoy views from Inspiration Point. 

Location/Directions: The Lakeside Bistro is on the third floor of The Terrace hotel, which is located at 689 N. Lakeshore Drive in Lake Junaluska, North Carolina. Restaurant guests are invited to park at no charge along the Rose Walk on North Lakeshore Drive or the top of Terrace Drive, come in the hotel's main entrance and go to the third floor.
