This was our second time to visit Anthony Wayne's, which is the former Gateway Club on Church Street, just one block off Main Street in Waynesville, NC. This time we went for Sunday brunch. My wife had Chicken and Waffles, a plate made famous, I think, at the Red Rooster Restaurant in Harlem. Along with the large portion of waffles and chicken was smoked bacon, and a side of syrup. I had the fried trout, which was excellent. We both had a glass of wine to accompany our brunch. Anthony Wayne's has a full bar, with a nice selection of wines and beers. The food pricing is very reasonable for such an upscale restaurant. The interior is very classy and comfortable, with a very relaxing atmosphere. The staff is extremely professional, friendly and accomodating. Each time we have eaten at Anthony Wayne's the food has been excellent and the dining experience wonderful. We will definitely return.

After having lunch there earlier in the week, which was terrific, we had dinner on Friday night. The dining room is quiet and elegantly decorated without being overdone. The service was prompt and pleasant. I had shrimp and grits, which was so very TASTY--didn't need any thing else--my husband had fried oysters and salad. He said the oyster sauce was really good. The bread was light and perfect, with a wonderful dipping sauce. We will definitely go back. They do need some outdoor lighting and sign work. If one did not know it was there, it would be missed completely!

We were member's of the Gateway Club when it was a private dining club and now that they have gone public the world will know what great food they have to offer. Always an unusual menu, but always good and fresh. We're all luck to be able to go anytime we want.

My husband and I had a delightful evening listening to live (but not loud) music and enjoying a delicious dinner with great service. We highly recommend Anthony Wayne's at the Gateway Club in Waynesville, NC.

For a wonderful evening out you cannot beat Anthony Wayne's. The historic building has been beautifully restored and the ambiance is fabulous. The menu is varied and excellent at lunch and for a candlelit evening meal.
