It is a cute restaurant, that I also a wine bar. When walking into the restaurant, you walk through the win bar to the restaurant. The chairs remind of being in a log cabin. They are the perfect setting for a mountain restaurant.

Staff were very accommodating and ensured dishes were amended for my children due to their allergies. We went back again (it was so good) for take away... More

Over the course of a weekend I had three meals at the Cork and Bean. Two breakfasts and one dinner. All three were excellent. I can't say enough about the friendliness of the staff and the quality of the food. I highly recommend!

We recently moved to WNC and were finding a hard time finding restaurants that we loved. We accidentally stumbled across the cork & bean and instantly fell in love. We've been here a few times and tried several different things. Among our favorites were the chicken pot pie, burger and tomato soup. This place has a great atmosphere, beautiful decor... More

During our visit to Bryson City for the Polar Express experience our family of 6 enjoyed breakfast two days in a room at this restaurant gem. The restaurant is beautiful inside and the food is amazing. The first day we were asked if we had a reservation, which we did not, but that wasn't any issue and we were quickly... More

The chicken pesto crepe was great, atmosphere was nice, but being a wine drinker, I didn't get the direction for a nice glass of wine with dinner that I was expecting.
