“Great Food, Spastic Service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

We usually go here for lunch after skiing and are usually very pleased with the food. Occasionally, we just don't like something, but we all have different tastes. My wife despises their gyro and I was unimpressed with it. Burgers have always been very good and the fried corn is delicious. Their micro brew beers - they can keep. Another micro brewery smokes them in that regard, though, again but we all like different beer types. My biggest complaint is one waitress who is ATROCIOUS. I would suggest leaving if you see a slender young lady with dark wavy hair coming to serve you. She must be the owner's daughter is something as she is consistently horrible - and we have given her way better tips than normal figuring she might have had a bad day - but apparently she is having a bad life, so it is back to normal 20%.

“Upbeat Fun Bar and Grill”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

If you want to have a beer and some fish and chips.. this is the place. A good spot when you want to go out for burgers, beer and ballgames on TV. Packed on weekend nights, some live music.. it's the local hang out.. Fun.

“Good Beers and Good Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

My wife and I visited Waynesville on a weekend getaway in February. After a bit of strolling historic Waynesville, it was recommended we eat here. We were glad we did!

“good for a quick bite”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

Located on the main walking route and having specials is a very good thing. I really enjoyed the Shepard's pie, a personal favorite. Not as crazy about the fish tacos though. Smiling and quick service was appreciated both times we visited.
