“Amazing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2014 via mobile

After spending the afternoon hiking in DuPont we decided to wander over to Flat Rock out of curiosity. We started getting hungry so we did a quick search and this place popped up. We hadn't read any reviews and didn't expect much.

The staff was exceptionally friendly, polite and professional. The outdoor seating was very comfortable and relaxing. At no point were we ever rushed. Michael was our waiter and he was very knowledgable of the food and brews. Initially, we were going to order platters to eat in and pizza to take home because we simply couldn't decide. He changed our mind, so we ended up ordering two pizzas to eat in. My wife had a cheese pizza and I ordered a red sauce pizza with sausage and onions (i forget the name). The were absolutely delicious! The crust was awesome. The sauce was awesome. One of the best wood-stove pizzas I've ever enjoyed. I'm so glad we went with the pizzas.

However, we couldn't walk out without dinner in tow. So, we ordered the pull-pork platter with mac-and-cheese and collards as well as the brisket with BBQ beans and mash. At 10pm we started getting hungry again and decided to heat up a little of our dinner for a snack. We devoured it all! The brisket was the best I've ever had even after being nuked. Everything was superior.

We spent a week in the area and unfortunately discovered it on our last day. It would be worth a trip back just to try the rest of the stuff on the menu as well as some of the other beers on tap. If you are visiting DuPont Park, this is a must visit after. Our cabin was south of Brevard and it was well worth the hour drive back.

“Try the meatloaf”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2014

I was with a party of four. The other three had the barbecue-I am not a big fan so ordered the meatloaf. It was barbecued, of course. It was the best I have ever had and was enough for a lunch the next day. We all enjoyed our meals. Ate on the porch & had great service.

“Delicious barbecue”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

In one of our day trips out of Highlands, we stopped at the Wood Room in Hendersonville as it had been recommended for it's excellent barbecue selections. It is also known for its brick oven pizza. There were four of us, and we each ordered various types of barbecue….pulled pork, beef brisket. Their homemade cornbread accompanied salads and plate dinners. Don't miss the cornbread!! Jeff was our waiter, and he was great. He helped us with our selections and was very solicitous and quite knowledgeable and enthused about all menu items. The Wood Room is a recommended stop if you're in the area.

“Good pizza”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2014

Go figure---we went to a restaurant that has won numerous awards for their Bar-B-Que and had their pizza. We had a wide choice of toppings and they prepared the crust just right---thin, crisp and very crunchable. The Wood Room is popular so get a reservation even if you are going early.

“Excellent pulled pork”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2014

We had a very nice visit to this upbeat restaurant. Although we had to wait for 1/2 to be seated, the wait staff was very nice. It was a bit noisy but we ate on the patio which helped. The pulled pork was excellent along with the sides of cole slaw and mac and cheese. I look forward to going back.
