Very good food! Have not had a bad meal here yet. Nice atmosphere and scenic views of the mountains. Warning: the kitchen here loves spices and garlic. Eat what you love here but bring the acid reflux meds!. Will viist again.

My husband and I spent a weekend in Waynesville for our anniversary and chose The Sweet Onion based on it's menu of Southern staples as well as other favorite items of ours.

She kept our glasses filled and met our every request. He food recommendations were not only helpful but "spot on" as far as... More

I had lunch h ere recently with a group of friends. Everyone enjoyed their selections, the waitstaff was attentive, prices reasonable, atmosphere and decor pleasant. I had house salad with shrimp - very tasty. The restaurant is convenient, in downtown Waynesville. One of our favorite local restaurants.

We have had lunch there a couple of times. Food, service & atmosphere were good. Lunch menu items fairly resonable price, but looked at the dinner menu and it's somewhat high for the items compared to other places locally, like steak & seafood restaurants.
