On a short visit to Waynesville, looking for a place to have a casual dinner, we slipped into Burbon Barrel Beef and Ale. We received excellent friendly service, enjoyed a well prepared and tasty burger and selected a robust ale recommended by the server. This seems to be a local spot and it was full of folks enjoying themselves, so... More

We've enjoyed many nice restaurants in Waynesville but had never tried the Bourbon Barrel...we were sorry that we had not visited sooner. Our dinners were excellent. While everyone enjoyed what they ordered, I can attest to the quality of the maple glazed pork. It, and the accompanying sides were outstanding! The service was excellent as was the dessert. I would... More

The visitors center in Maggie Valley recommended this place for a good steak. My husband and I had the ribeye. It was delicious. It was more of an upscale restaurant then a steakhouse. The waiter was very attentive and we were not rushed. Good for a Friday night. I would have liked a vegetable. There were onions and peppers on... More

I can't review the food because we never sat down. We found this place on Trip Advisor & by a recommendation of a local shopkeeper. When we walked in, we noticed all tables had wooden chairs, but the booths had seats with cushions. We asked for a booth and were told they were only for a party of four or... More

We are local to the area and have always had excellent food and exceptional service at this restaurant. The atmosphere of the restaurant matches the quality of the food and with a full service bar, you can't go wrong to have dinner here. We always enjoy the firecracker shrimp and fried green tomatoes with a rib eye or burger or... More

This is a relatively small restaurant serving upscale food, wine, beer, and bar drinks. The crab cakes I had were WONDERFUL! The meat loaf my husband had was WONDERFUL! Our companions had the burger and they were very pleased with it. There were other items on the menu that no doubt would have been very tasty. The domestic beer was... More

Had the best prime rib in the area. This was an enjoyable dinner. We were served well, and we were not rushed. I will return.
