Description: A Unique Farm to Fork Experience: Innovative Southern Food with a Local Backbone & Home Grown Libations Frogs Leap Public House is a farm to table country pub at the corner of Church and Montgomery Streets, built in 1918 as the southeast's first Buick dealer just one block south of Main in the heart of historic downtown Waynesville. FLPH is focused on the culture, art, music, wine, beer and especially the food of Western North Carolina. Like the City of Waynesville itself, FLPH is Southern down to its roots, but draws influences from around the world. The food is fresh and local, the libations are home grown, the music is American and has a beat. FLPH is home to a family with a passion for serving world class food, wine, and spirits in a soulful, comforting atmosphere.

Dropped in for a draft beer and a snack. Good selection of craft beers and the bar maid suggested appetizers that could be shared. May go back for a meal at another time.

Stopped for lunch, a nice place with a unique farm to table menu, had a smoked chicken sandwich and a shrimp Po boy, both very good and very good craft beer.

I have eaten lunch about six times that Frogleap public house. I liked it so much that I would take visiting guests when they came into town. They have an interesting flair with their food. For example, even their meatloaf is unlike anything I have ever had. They also do a great job with fish and pork....always a creative and... More

On vacation in Waynesville and called some local friends to meet us for dinner here. We had picked the place based on TA reviews. Was a little taken aback when they arrived and said they had been there two nights before. I was surprised they hadn't mentioned it earlier but they said this is one of their favorites...and we soon... More

My wife and I were looking for a great place to have a date. We found this place and were thrilled with this treasure. We went for lunch and it was very nicely appointed. They had a huge chalk board that told where they got all their food from. Incredibly fresh, and very fairly priced for the amount of food... More

My family and I stopped in here for a late lunch. I am so glad we did. the food was absolutely delicious and the service was great. This is a farm to table restaurant in which they use as many local products as possible. The menu changes daily and is always seasonal and fresh. I enjoyed a summer arugula salad... More

Visited Frogs Leap on Sunday morning for brunch. I had made a copy of their menu, and it suggested to call for reservations. I did and the hostess explained that it was not a brunch buffet, but ordered from menu. That was fine with us. Made reservation for 11:30, which is the time they opened. My husband and I ordered...

I don't recall ever posting a review on Trip Advisor, but after being absolutely impressed by FLPH, I feel compelled to share my experiences! I have been an executive chef at a fine dining establishment in the past, and have managed several restaurants, now am part owner of a restaurant in a nearby town, and I must say that I... More

Love love love this place! The food is on point! This was our second visit and both times we were impressed. The first time we went we had an amazing arugula pistachio salad and two great entrees. The cocktails were perfect too. This time we had brunch and couldn't pass up another delicious arugula salad with fried goat cheese balls... More
