Saluda Restaurants

Below is a list of restaurants, when visiting historical Saluda, North Carolina.  

Saluda Whistle Stop Pizza & Wings

Saluda Whistle Stop Pizza & Wings is one minute from Green River Adventures, and just a few minutes from the Gorge Zipline in Saluda. Aside from pizza and wings, there are several other options on the menu; beer and wine are available. The outside deck is a great place to people watch, and during cold months it is enclosed (with heat) for guests to still be able to enjoy. One thing to keep in mind, is that there is no complimentary tap water available. Due to the building's size and age, there just wasn't room to fit in CO2 tanks (for fountain soda), soda fountain machine, ice machine, etc., when the business opened. However, you can purchase the bottled water or bottled sodas they have available. Check out their website for current hours and menu.

Welcome to Saluda Whistle Stop Pizza & Wings
Our wings are not battered (making them naturally gluten free) our fryer is filtered daily and we use a NON-GMO Sunflower oil to cook with. Which insures no flavor bleed through from other foods and a much healthier alternative to many other oils many other places use, the cost is worth putting out crisp, flavorful food without the unhealthy oils and bi-products in dirty oil.

May - October, the diner is open on Sundays 11-4. This is a 50's style diner, serving homemade desserts, milkshakes, and standard diner fare.

Saluda Grade Cafe

The Saluda Grade Cafe is a 5 minute drive from the Gorge Zipline, and 10 minutes from Pearson Falls in Saluda. The restaurant is right on Main Street, next door to the Purple Onion. The lunch and dinner menu is a bit more on the upscale, pricier side; however, locals love the food. The dishes are prepared fresh to order, so the food may take a while to be served. Beer and wine are available. The menu has vegetarian options, and Chef Kaye can accommodate vegan and other special diets.

Subway in Saluda, North Carolina, is just a couple of minutes from the Gorge Zipline and Green River Adventures. I first recommend eating at one of the local mom and pop restaurants, but if that's not possible, then you can always stop here for breakfast or lunch. Mon - Fri they open at 6:30 a.m. Sat - Sun they open at 7:30 a.m. Subway is located right next to the Triangle Stop gas station in Saluda.
