“Best in the Smokies!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013

My husband and I stayed in Bryson City two nights while visiting Smoky Mountain National Park. We happened upon the Cork and Bean and ended up having dinner there both nights. The food, service ad ambience were excellent. There were several dinner specials. The trout was excellent along with the appetizers we tried. Best hummus we've had, goat cheese en croute good too.

“Great vibe, great food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

We love the Cork & Bean; we ate there 3 times during our vacation to Bryson City a couple of weeks ago. We went twice for coffee, bagels, fruit and free wi-fi, and once for dinner, which was stellar. Order the Etouffee or Trout if they're being offered the night you visit (the menu dinner changes nightly) - both entrees are outstanding!

“Just GOOD!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

Using TA we narrowed down our lunch to 2 restaurants and were so glad we chose Cork and Bean. The entire staff was so friendly and smiling as we entered. The salads were fresh and plentiful. The crepe was amazing. Our ice tea glasses stayed full! Great service, great food and we will be back.

Just the fact we had dinner at Cork and Bean twice when in Bryson City for 4 days should tell you all you need to know about our experience. Food was great and desert even better. Very good crepes
