On August 21, 2017 day will turn to night, the temperature will drop, the sun will disappear completely, and a total solar eclipse will make its way across the United States. Haywood County will witness the eclipse around 2:30 p.m. EDT. It’s time to start planning your visit! The Great Smoky Mountains of North Carolina is a pristine location for witnessing this rare event. We will have a special farm to table summer menu and a feature cocktail to help you enjoy this event. We are not open Monday but we are open Tuesday to Saturday nights! Call 828.456.1930 for reservations.
