Some of the best food I've ever eaten!! The waiter was extremely nice and attentive. The atmosphere was cozy and warm. First time eating Shrimp and Grits at the recommendation of the waiter and would easily drive 6 hours one way just to eat there again. A must try if you're in the area.

While the price may be a bit high for the area....if you are looking for outstanding food and service then this is the place to dine. From the made fresh daily sauces, butter and dressings, to the locally sourced produce used in salads....each entree is prepared to order. The ambience is good, a bit more casual, and the wait staff... More

We went last night and was very excited. We got there and was seated in an awkward 2 top. Allison the waitress was very nice and went out of her way. We ordered the special ribeye and the voodoo pasta. The ribeye was mostly fat and the pasta was all grease. Very disappointed! The restaurant said that was normal for... More

Stumbled across this restaurant on one of our many visits to Waynesville, NC. Very open and pub like feel to the inside. Took a few minutes for someone to greet us even though the restaurant had just opened for lunch and only one other table was seated! Lunch choices mostly two soups and many creative choices for panini style sandwhiches.... More

This is a great place. I had been in town a lot and had yet to try this restaurant, but, had heard good things about it. All the good things were correct. Will definitely be back again on my next visit. On both visits the service was efficient, friendly and professional. The servers, while quite professional, remained casual enough to... More
