Pizza buffet mmmkay !!!!

The lunch buffet here is excellent. The pizza is ever changing during lunch and normally thin crust and excellent. The salad bar is pretty vast for a lunch deal and the employees are great. Very nice hostess !

Ordered angus burgers with onion rings... Received everything cold! Asked for med-well, got similar-raw? N&N hasn't been taking CC's since Nov. Found out owners in Divorce settlement... Wonder if N&N will be around much longer? Our wait staff was great but Kitchen staff/manager needs to get their game on, if they want to stay in business ...

I got the patty melt and it had almost no flavor. It took about 15 minutes to get my check, and there were only about 4 tables filled. I might of just had a bad experience, but I won't be going back.

We sat in a cozy booth and had a large pizza and an apple ale (me) and a beer (him). Loved that they only have beer from smaller breweries. We had half Hawaiian and half veggie and both were really good. Very casual atmosphere. Service was good, but not great. We would return if back in the area.

This was a typical all you-can-eat buffet. Most of the restaurants in Waynesville were closed on this Sunday so the lines were long at Nick and Nate's, including travelers and locals. We had to wait about 30 minutes. The food and choices were good but nothing was outstanding.

There are other, pricier places for lunch when in downtown Waynesville. However, if you just want a place to relax a bit and enjoy some regular (not gourmet) food, this is a good place to do it. We sat by the window, but they do have some cozy booths too. They have a salad bar, with average or above selections,... More

On recommendations from friends we took 17 people (3 large families) to this restaurant today. Very good pizza and the Greek salad was perfect! They were out of kids menus and so we didn't know they had kid-sized portions until we were ordering but that's ok. We had a couple of people that got the meatball sub and chicken fingers... More

First, if you're not in a hurry or don't care about service, this is a solid stop in Waynesville. The pizza IS GOOD but there seems to be a lack of leadership and ownership has some problems. They only accept cash or checks now (yes this is 2014) and we were told that this was because the owners are getting... More

We stopped in Waynesville after crossing from Pisgah Forest through the mountain road and attending church - and a local gave us a heads up about Nate and Nathan's restaurant. It was a busy, bustling place on that holiday Sunday after Christmas, but they accommodated the groups that showed up. My wife and I had the half pound Angus burgers... More
