All I can say is don't pass this place by without having a meal. The menu contained many great entrees. We choose Flat steak dinner and Shrimp'n Grits. The craft beers selection was exceptional. Best place in Waynesville hands down.

We enjoyed the food (we both had the sirloin) but our waiter was poor at best. He would forget to bring us important items; for example, after he served our steaks we had to wait several minutes for steak knives before we could eat. I doubt we will return because of the service.

Ate here for lunch. Was traveling on vacation. There were a lot of locals coming there for lunch too. That always is a good thing. Had a roast beef panini. The beef was very tender. Also, had the soup of the day, "Chicken Pot Pie" soup. Was pleasantly surprised. Very flavorful. Tasted like it had a little sherry in the... More

This is where the locals dine... casual, fun, maybe loud (but that's because everyone is so friendly) and terrific food! My wife and I have dined there several times, and each time has been great. If you're like me, you enjoy trying different beers from the area you're visiting. The Bourbon offers a nice selection of local and regional brews... More

TOO LOUD! Food was good. Sirloin steak was yummy. We were celebrating anniversaries with another couple and we could not hear each other without leaning way across the table. We will ask for a booth way in the back next time--if there is one. Why do restaurants have so much hard surface and no sound absorption?! Our server, Chris was... More

I have nothing but great things to say about this place. From the moment I walked in i was impressed with the decor and ambiance. We sat at the bar and I immediately noticed the local craft beers on tap. The bartender quickly greeted us with a smile and menus. She gave us excellent service. My partner and I each... More

We had a delicious salad and large sandwiches that we took half home for our evening snack. We just smiled at each other after taking our... More

Fun place, bourbon is king here! You can sip on a nice bourbon or find it in a dish cooked by the Chef. My spouse had the bourbon sirloin with smashed potatoes it was only,$19.95 and he loved it. My son ate the voodoo pasta and I had the pork Marsala with wild rice and asparagus. We drank three local... More

This restaurant was amazing! I highly recommend it. Don't be fooled, it's not just a steakhouse. I had delicious well-cooked salmon for dinner. There are many, many different types of bourbon to choose from, and they'll pour it anyway you want it!
