“Very attentive service & delicious food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 24, 2013 via mobile

My husband and I had a excellent meal. He ordered the black bean burger and it was very flavorful. I had the hearty vegetable soup and spinach salad. It was fresh and it left me wanting more. Highly recommend!!

“Best place in town!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 21, 2013

We visited Bryson City for our 10th anniversary and fell in LOVE with the Cork & Bean! The staff was super friendly and the food was amazing! One of the owners/managers was kind enough to show us around and welcomed us back personally each time we returned... yes, we went back a couple of times! You will too. I'm confident it will quickly become your favorite.

The food dishes were very unique and absolutely delicious - cooked & presented to perfection - and the service was great & fast. Wine and coffees were fabulous too.

We'll come back to Bryson City just to visit the C&B :-)

“WOW! Over the top”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 21, 2013

Adding our two cents worth. Were here May 2013 for a few days and wandered into the Cork and Bean for coffee. Looked over the menu and came back for dinner. Don't need to say much, this is Big City Cuisine at country prices!!! Wonderful fresh sauces and perfectly cooked scallops and beef short ribs which we shared and both had more than enough. Wine list is basic but adequate.

Truly a GEM!!!

“Nice Wine Selection”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 20, 2013

We did not eat here but did order two bottles of wine to go. The manager and server were very nice and even let us explore their wine supply which was in an old bank vault (very cool). The wine selection was great and will go back to try the food the next time.
