In my visits to the Waynesville area, I have been so pleased to find such great restaurants. Bourbon Barrel was wonderful. The food, beverage and wait staff were all delightful.

We have been coming to Waynesville for many years to a bible conference and each year we go to our favorite places in the Waynesville/Maggie Valley area and this year somebody suggested the Bourbon Barrel and we tried it and it was awesome! I like to try new things and I saw the Egg Plant on the menu so I... More

Bourbon Barrel stands out with its creative cuisine, relatively small, intimate setting and good bar selection. Items like eggplant crepes with goat cheese, 'Voodoo pasta,' lump meat crab cakes and meatloaf do not disappoint. Each menu item has a twist of something unusual and very tasty. Portions are large, with interesting plate presentations. The bar area is small, but has... More

7 of us visited this past weekend and no one was disappointed! Fresh, flavorful ingredients; a great craft/local beer list; and great service. We were fortunate to have reservations as this is not a large space and our booth only comfortably sat 6 but they accommodated us by allowing us to put a chair at the end of the table.... More

Visited this restaurant last year while visiting Waynesville, NC and it's a can't miss dinner location. We had Wedge Salad; Crab Cake; Double Pork Chop with Fries and house salad. The Champagne dressing is out of this world and the pork chop was superb. Wife said it was the best Crab Cake she's ever had. Restaurant is smallish, staff is... More

We had not been to this restaurant since last year and were very pleased with our meal and the service this week. Try the center cut ribeye -- absolutely terrific!!

Second time here but first for dinner. The steak was perfect, good wine and sides. Friendly hostess. Glad we gave it a second chance, while lunch was good, service was very poor the first time. Will be back!

Staying at a nice B&B with my fiancé and heard about Bourbon Barrel Beef & Ale. We decided to have dinner there that night. As we were going to a place for lunch, we figured that it made sense to just make sure we could find the restaurant for dinner. When we drove by, it looked great and we decided... More
