Description: A Unique Farm to Fork Experience: Innovative Southern Food with a Local Backbone & Home Grown Libations Frogs Leap Public House is a farm to table country pub at the corner of Church and Montgomery Streets, built in 1918 as the southeast's first Buick dealer just one block south of Main in the heart of historic downtown Waynesville. FLPH is focused on the culture, art, music, wine, beer and especially the food of Western North Carolina. Like the City of Waynesville itself, FLPH is Southern down to its roots, but draws influences from around the world. The food is fresh and local, the libations are home grown, the music is American and has a beat. FLPH is home to a family with a passion for serving world class food, wine, and spirits in a soulful, comforting atmosphere.

“Hit and miss”
Reviewed March 2, 2013

We have visited twice. The first visit we sat in the bar and had appetizers and drink. Had a great experience which prompted our second visit. The second time was not the charm. Not sure if we caught a bad night, a bad server or both. Ordered the soup and sliders no more than medium rare. Simple enough. After not seeing the server for 15 minutes she delivers the sliders, well done. The buns were not toasted, they were black. I asked her about my soup to which she replied it must not have come out. Server speak for I forgot to order it. I ended up sending the sliders back and getting only the soup which was mediocre at best. Probably wont be back.

Reviewed February 25, 2013

This is one of 2 places where we go to treat ourselves when we've been good:) Great food and nice surroundings. Service is very attentive. I recommend this be one of the special places you visit when in Waynesville.

“A little to uptight”
Reviewed February 9, 2013

4 girls in for a fun afternoon at the bar. Laughing having fun with our first cocktail. Owner comes over and tells us we are being too loud must be quiet for restaurant patrons in other room. Seriously? Ok time to leave. What a financial loss Won't be back and we live here.

“worth the drive”
Reviewed February 3, 2013

Located in Waynesville, about 40 minutes up I-40 from Asheville, FLPH is located on a side street that challenged our GPS.

On-street parking. I imagine that at times this might pose problems.

Warm pleasant ambience. The hostess, and Anna, our server, were friendly and knowledgeable.

The wife had shrimp and grits, I had the pork chop, and we split the pecan pie dessert. All were well prepared and seasoned. Anna suggested excellent wines for each of our entrees, a chadonnay for the wife and a cabernet for me. If we had to look for a gripe, it did take about 40 minutes from the time our order was taken until we were served.

We'll come back here next time we are in Asheville.
