Fair....

Food was not bad, but not that great either. Pretty average. Probably would not eat there again. Friend had the Philly and she said it tasted burnt and very dry. Service was slow but waiter was having to wait on too many people.

Wow! The whole experience from the moment we sat down till we left was fraught with peril!! Do not go there unless you are interested in how NOT to run a business or just like to observe sociopaths at work

We went here on a Sunday night and it was pretty deserted. Started with some beers, and wine, and that went just fine (the selection was OK, but not great). Menu was limited, with a few items not available (even though it was in August at the height of the tourist season). I ordered a burger, but was informed that... More

We ordered burgers and when they came my youngest , who's 8, said they... More

Stopped here to watch the USA play in the World Cup. I sat at the bar for a good 10 minutes waiting to order a beer while two bartenders argued about their work load. Asked to see a menu and was informed that they were out of wings, bacon, and two of their taps were empty. Asked if they would... More

After a harrowing six hour drive to Bryson City, we stopped into Tuckasegee Tavern to catch some much needed time away from the car. What we did not expect was the great selection of beers and some nice bar food. A great place to unwind from the drive-in and really set the mood for some great mountain views.

Very good food that you wouldn't really expect from a Bar. Very cool staff, friendly and willing to go above and beyond! Cool porch to eat, drink and take in the scenery.
