This restaurant in a little out of the way place in Waynesville, NC is delicious and the service is excellent. If you go, try the shrimp with fried green tomatoes appetizer..Yummy!!

The food was great, the staff was very attentive, and even stayed open a bit longer to accommodate our party.

This is a good find in Waynesville. It is a little off the beaten path but is very popular so call ahead for reservations. The service was great and meals delicious. It is a little on the pricey side but we were not disappointed. i know we will go back.

The only problem was picking which dish to get because it all looked great (I chose the bacon wrapped meatloaf). Food was amazing.

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.

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
