After reading all the rave reviews, we made a definite plan of checking this place out. Got their steak which I had read was the greatest. It is not. It was tough and bland. Our steak we had at Texas Roadhouse the week before beat it, hands down. Got breaded mushrooms. They tasted like the usual frozen variety you can... More

Large rustic restaurant with great steak and beer. The service is good and the prices are decent. I wouldn't recommend the chicken sandwich (I think it's a frozen chicken patty, yuck) but everything else is really good. Good ambience, I do wish they would make the bar area for adults only, lots of screaming kids often climbing over booths, not... More

I'm glad you love the steak and beer so much! In regards to your date nights, I understand where you're coming from, and I'm sorry you've been frustrated with the noise level at times. We're a family restaurant, and we welcome all guests to sit throughout the tavern. Other than that, it's great you always enjoy yourself, and we hope... More

Large restaurant that seemed to be full of locals. I highly recommend the baked sweet potato! My co-worker got a steak and was a little dissipointed. Lots of seating, so don't let the large number of cars out front scare you off!

First parking has always been an issue here know that before you arrive. And it's always extremely busy. We are from in town so we ordered go for dinner. First the phone wouldn't work so the order had to be made in person and upon mentioning the phone not working the woman just smiled and had no apology or explanation.... More

Angela, it's a shame we dropped the ball on your to-go order this time. It sounds like we may have had an off-night in the kitchen, and getting orders right is always our goal. We'd love to have you back again sometime for another try -- I know we can do better than this. Take care, Kathryn Millis More

4 of us went for supper. Each ordered something different. Servings was exceptional and more than one could eat. Our waitress was continually filling our drinks. This is an outstanding place to relax and eat. They were very busy but our food came quick and I will definitely go again should I be in area.

First time at Bogart's and we had a very good experience, it was well worth the wait. Our server was very pleasant and the food was very good. I really liked the open kitchen in the bar area and the upstairs dining area looks like it would be great for a larger party.

Bogarts is a friendly delicious restaurant with great hamburgers and steaks. The huge barbecue stuffed sweet potato is large enough for two hungry people. We almost always have a meal at Bogarts when we are in Waynesville.

Excellent local dining with a bar area and upstairs area perfect for large parties. My grilled salmon with baked sweet potato was just right sized for an early evening appetite. For physically impaired, be aware the wait line can stretch out of the building and adjacent parking can be congested. No valet. People seem content to wait.
