My wife and I love the atmosphere. Extremely busy, but service was great. Food is great, but can be a little pricey. Parking is limited so you may have to park across the street.

We were there last Saturday night on our vacation, We first ate here last October. The steak is by far the best restaurant steak in North Carolina. Great service super friendly staff. I sure would love to bring family and friends from home to Bogart's. You just can't descibe how good it is. We will be back the next time... More

Enjoyed another trip to the mountains and to the local favorite restaurant - what a surprise to find a live band playing in the corner. This restaurant has yet another fun vibe added to it. If you are in the area, it's worth stopping for. Other reviews saying the menu is pricey is not true, makes me wonder where the... More

So the interior of the restaurant is awesome, playful, functional and easy on the eyes. The food is terrific, I had a deluxe cheeseburger plate and ate every single bite. There are many sides to this restaurant; however, its one downside is the cost. I felt like it was higher than normal. If you are on a budget, I would... More

Bears hanging from the ceiling and rustic decor make for a cute restaurant. However, we were told this was the best steak in the county and if it is, I feel sorry for the folks here! The steak was chewy and very salty. Disappointing.

Bogart's has been around for many years in Waynesville. We have a vacation home nearby and we 'discovered' Bogart's about 10 years ago. The menu is hardly exotic, but it is nice to go to a good quality place that has comfort foods that are traditional, consistent, and delicious. The chef isn't trying hard to be something that he's not......and... More

The food was pretty good but what it lacked was made up for in how friendly and accommodating the staff was. The inside atmosphere was cute and inviting. It was reasonably priced. We were with a large party that included kids. They let us graze and chit chat without ever feeling rushed. We walked there from downtown. I would not... More

We stayed at a motel very close and were able to walk to this place. The food is very good and service too. We recommend this place.

We went to Bogart's because it was one of the few places open later on a Sunday evening. It was okay, definitely edible but not memorable. Nice selection of beer, and friendly staff. Kids will like the bear-themed decorations throughout the place.

When traveling I like to eat at non-chain places. We happened upon this place and we are so glad we did!! Great food and good prices!! The ABC sandwich was crazy good! Apples, bacon and cheddar cheese all melty and gooey!! Wow!!! Sounds crazy but so good! My son got the Boagie Hoagie and loved it! It was almost as... More
