Recently my husband and I were able to “escape” to a nice dinner at Christy Lee’s Courtyard Grill in downtown Blue Ridge. A rare date night that we were able to enjoy while relaxing in the beautiful courtyard of this restaurant. I had really been wanting to visit because living in Blue Ridge, we often take walks to downtown and I had been admiring Christy’s while letting my kids toss pennies into the fountain at the courtyard, meanwhile seeing the people eat in peace in such a lovely atmostphere! I told my husband, next date night…lets for sure try Christy Lee’s!
I was most pleased at the service and food that we received. They offer great seafood, steaks and a large variety of other items. If you are an oyster lover, you can receive $1 oysters all day! They are closed on Sundays and Mondays but every other day you can enjoy eating inside the nicely decorated restaurant or enjoy the casualness of the courtyard while listening to live music! If you are visiting with your pet, he or she is even welcome to hang out in the courtyard with you! I know this was a real asset for a couple we met that was visiting from Florida and had their Lab with them. It was too hot for him to stay in the car…he sat there nicely in the courtyard and the waiter even brought him a special treat!
I think you will be as impressed with this restaurant as I was. While you are visiting downtown Blue Ridge, enjoy a ride on the Blue Ridge Scenic Railway. You must also stop by Sister’s Fudge for that special treat! Enjoy your visit!
