“always always good”
Reviewed April 30, 2013

Their food is always good and I have been here on countless occasions. Sweet potato or sweet potato fries are a must! Sandwiches are amazing and very filling. My grandfather, who is a tough critic, ate here once and ordered a steak. He grabbed the waitress and told her to tell the chef it was one of the best steaks he had ever had.

“Great food, even better service”
Reviewed April 27, 2013

Bogart's is one of the few non-chain restaurants in Waynesville that is open on Sunday afternoon and evening. We drove past it then circled back a few minutes later when we didn't find anything else open. We regretted not stopping the first time past. The restaurant was full and people were waiting; still, we were seated in less than 15 minutes. Service was excellent and cheerful. The soup (tomato basil) and salad were fresh and tasty; a bacon cheeseburger was so generous my husband barely touched his fries. Then came dessert: peach cobbler, which hubby had been craving every since we hit Georgia, did not disappoint. The brownie with ice cream and puffs of whipped cream was obscenely big and delicious, but too much to finish. Would we return? In a heartbeat.

“Best Restaurant in Town”
Reviewed April 25, 2013

I live in Waynesville and have been eating at Bogart's for over 15 years. I have never had a bad meal there. In my opinion, it is the best restaurant in town. The servings are large, the prices are reasonable, and the staff is courteous and friendly.
