We tried lamb ribs, sliders, and flatbread which were all very tasty. Has a full bar and nice... read more

We couldn't have asked for a better dinner. Crab cakes and vegetables superb, trout and sweet potatoes even better. Truly local, gourmet dining at it's best. The flavors are like a party in your mouth. Don't leave town without eating here.

We've eaten here 6 times since they opened, enjoying each time. Lunch (or just after) is a great time to go without much wait. (Then you can splurge on a great lunch and have a light snack for dinner.) We've had dinner too, but getting in can be difficult. Food is excellent to above average, price is as expected and...

After reading the comments, we were prepared for poor service and a pretty good meal. Well, the servce was very good, and the meal was as expected - above average and well presented. The downside is that the server was pushy - almost to the point of being offensive. The wine that was ordered "had tannins ... would we like... More

6 of us walked in without knowing anything about this restaurant.... Very pleasantly surprised! We had a lovely server. Extensive and interesting menu....I love it when there's so many good choices that it's hard to decide! I chose the local blueberry, peach, goat cheese fritter and arugula salad, others at our table ordered quesadillas, other salads and sandwiches. Fresh foods,... More

If you really want to dine at the best restaurant in Waynesville you must go to Frogs Leap Public House. The menu is amazing. Extensive wine list. Everything is farm to table and very reasonably priced. Don't miss this dining experience.

Very good, but pricey! This is a special occasion restaurant for most of us. They have some very strange combinations with weird names like Devil on Horseback. The menu changes all the time. Plan to be there a while, and get appetizers!
