The Bourbon Barrel is a lovely little restaurant located in the Hazlewood section of Waynesville. The atmosphere is charming, the staff is attentive, and the food is very good. Last night we brought our nephew who again ordered the steak and smashed potatoes and enjoyed every morsel. My husband again devoured the pork chop. Before we went I had gone on-line to look at the menu, and decided I'd have the vegetarian stuffed peppers which sounded yummy. When I got to the restaurant, I found that they no longer offered it, and decided on the vegetable stack. Our waitress informed us that one of the specials was a three-cheese ravioli with mushrooms and vegetables and would be replacing the veggie stack that night. So, of course, I ordered it, and it was wonderful. A delightful sauce and loads of crimini mushrooms accompanied the ravioli, and it was way more than I could eat in one or two or three sittings, so I was the only one taking a box home (I can't wait to dive into it!). One of the restaurant's regular appetizer offerings is a lobster cheesecake made with creamy goat cheese and seasonings. There are big chunks of lobster and the slice is generous--enough for the three of us. When we go to Bourbon Barrel, we expect the food to be excellent, and we've never been disappointed.
