Great food but noisy

This was our second visit and the food was excellent again. Very good service and reasonable prices. The environment is a bit upscale for this area, yet relaxed and casual. My only complaint is, if you're with other people the acoustics make it very difficult to carry on a conversation. Other than... read more

We were greeted with a smile, served with friendliness and assisted with our choices. The Lobster Cheesecake appetizer was phenomenol. The French Onion soup was perfect, not as salty as other restaurants we have tried. The Cobb Salad was more than enough food served with a champagne vinaigrette that was scrumptious.

Great steaks and seafood. Excellent service. Great wine selections. Excellent desserts. What else do you need? Very nice ambiance for a special meal or celebration. Make a reservation if at all possible. Try them out. I especially like the salmon encrusted w/horseradish and breadcrumbs.

Then this young lass then asks if we have a reservation...which we did not given the hour. Clearly we... More

I love this place! I've eaten there many times. The salads are wonderful. I love the fried oyster appetizer. The steaks are great! The service is excellent! I love the Cobb salad. It is nice for a special night out, but also good for a group get together.

The wait staff was attentive, friendly, and efficient. My husband and I had dinner here as a break from the breweries and casual eateries we had been enjoying in Waynesville, and Bourbon Barrel did not disappoint. His sirloin steak was more tender and flavorful than

The staff was very friendly and welcoming. The food was delicious and hearty, filling and well presented. Beers on tap are all from local NC breweries. We tried "Catcher in the Rye" from the Frogs Level Brewery in Waynesville and it was absolutely fantastic. Prices were reasonable.
