I live in Waynesville, and have been to BBB&A a number of times, and have never been disappointed. Always good food and service. I make it a point to bring guests here whenever I can...to impress them, and let them know that Waynesville is not just some hillbilly haven, but a place where the good life is experienced too. I highly recommend it.

While vacationing in Waynesville, the owner of the B & B where we were staying recommended dining at the Bourbon Barrel Beef & Ale. We had reservations, and, were seated by the window, which was really nice. I ordered the jambalaya, which was alright, but, nothing special. My husband loved the french onion soup. One of our friends ordered the chicken dish, and, thought it was delicious. Another friend ordered the pasta dish, and said it was out of this world. The men also said the Bloody Mary's were fantastic. If you don't order anything else, be sure to order the Bread Pudding with Bourbon sauce. It was amazing! The best I have ever eaten in my life!

The service here was super. I had the shrimp and grits and they were wonderful. My husband had the jambalaya and he said it was also wonderful. The only disappointment was the key lime dessert. The pastry was dry and the key lime and blackberries were extremely sour. It is a small venue so rather noisy but a wonderful place to eat.

Had a fabulous meal at the Bourbon Barrel. Started with a fine shot of bourbon on the rocks to follow with the most amazing fried pickles. I was pleasantly surprised when I had their signature top sirloin steak. It was the finest piece of beef I have had in a long time. In the leagues with the $$$ urban steak houses. Desert was sinful and made from scratch. Services was professional, friendly, and attentive. The only critique would be that the restaurant was loud and lacked an intimate atmosphere. I highly recommend this wonderful restaurant. Definitely a much needed addition to the Waynesville restaurant scene.
