A brief history ~ 

We began as a corporate catering company in Charlotte, NC serving clients such as the Richardson family's Panther Stadium, Ken Schrader, Dale Earnhardt, Trammel Crow, ProLogis, Childress Klein, and Mary Tribble Creations. We opened the Bayou Kitchen in the Elizabeth Neighborhood of Charlotte in 1988, and the Bayou Smokehouse and Grill in Banner Elk in 2003. Then, in 2006 we opened the adjacent Bayou General Store.

The Bayou Kitchen in Charlotte has been sold, and is now a restaurant called The Philosopher's Stone. Fortunately, many of our Charlotte guests and friends continue to "drive up the hill" and visit with us here in Banner Elk.
