We stopped in Waynesboro specifically to eat at Bogart's at the recommendation of our tour guide at the Thomas Wolfe museum in Asheville. We were en route to Cherokee and it was kind of in between lunch and dinner, so the parking problems that other reviewers have mentioned was not an issue. We were not quite sure what to make of the place when we walked in; it looked a little anachronistic, like a 50s or 60s supper club/steakhouse - a little dark, a lot of rustic, knotty wood. And perhaps it was the time of day, but the clientele seemed a bit geriatric, so i was a little concerned that the food might be on the neutral/bland side. But it turned out to be very tasty, and a good value. We started out wiht the Broccoli Bites as an appetizer, and they were delicious - crispy batter on the outside, and the broccoli firm and flavorful inside. I had the steak salad, which was made up of an 8 ounce ribeye cooked to order, nice crispy greens, cheese, tomatoes and cucumbers, while my friends had the 8 ounce ribeye dinner. All of our steaks were cooked perfectly and full of flavor, and my companions said that they enjoyed their sides. In retrospect, i wish I had left room for dessert, as it seemed like the type of place where they would be good, but we were too full to even try the Mini Desserts of key lime, red velvet and tiramisu.

Our server was very attentive and cheerful, keeping our drinks filled without being obtrusive. All in all, it was an enjoyable meal, and well worth the stop.

We had lunch at Bogarts in Waynesville, NC on a Monday. We thought we would not have to worry about crowds but in October all the 'leaf lookers' were in town and it was crowded. Especially the small parking lot where we had to wait for a small space. But we were seated after a short 15 minute wait. Staff was friendly and helpful and lunch came in a timely fashion. Ordered a yard of onion rings for our group of 4 and they were a tall stack of the best rings I've had in a long time. They were scarfed down in time for our entrees. Phillycheese steak sandwich was luciously filled with tender steak, onion and bell pepper and gooey cheese. Beef tips were tender but the mushroom gravy almost tasted like it came from a jar. Grilled chicken breasts were juicy and flavorful, steak was really good and tender. The best thing there...BAKED POTATOES, I wish I could have one now! So good.

Went here with a group of 6. Every one enjoyed the food and atmosphere. Our steaks, (the filet mignon), we're tender and juicy. The service was very good. We would definitely return.

We had dinner at Bogart's on our recent weekend to Waynesville to attend the Arts & Crafts Festival. We had not been to Bogart's in a while so decided to try it again! We got there and had a hard time finding a place to park and had to park across the street at a business that was closed for the evening...thank goodness!! We then had to wait for 20 mins. until we were seated at a booth where we were greeted by a very friendly waitress who took our order for sweet, iced tea. We ordered a cheeseburger and fries and it also came with a pickle and my husband ordered the philly cheese steak with green peppers, onions, fries and a pickle. It was delicious when we got it!! There was still quite a long line when we were leaving...so get there early if you really want a great meal along with great service with a smile!

This was our 2nd time to eat dinner at Bogart's. Good food and service. They could stand to do some dusting of some of the many objects decorating the place but that was my only complaint. Good location and a very busy place to eat.
