“Enjoyed so much at lunch, went back for dinner!!”
Reviewed October 12, 2013

We checked the reviews on TA and liked what we read, so we stopped in for lunch today! We both had the South of the Border burger, one with sweet potato fries and one with potato salad....all scored at the top! Burgers were tasty and cooked perfectly. We sat at the bar so we didn't have to wait...downtown was hopping today with an arts festival. We could see in the kitchen and were amazed at the well oiled machine they have going there....the cooks nor the servers never missed a beat and turned out great, hot food in a timely and efficient manner!! We decided the servers mention of how good their Reubens are was enough to bring us back for dinner to try it! Well, she was so right again! It was very good...chose the traditional with 1000island over their own version made with sour cream! Next time! The onion rings are excellent...everything I saw looked delish! The service was great too. Highly recommend Bogarts.....and yes will return for sure! Diet cut backs start tomorrow!!!

“Food and Atmosphere”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

We have been to Bogart's in Waynesville several times in our trips to North Carolina. We have never been disappointed. The food has always been served by friendly wait staff. The salads are crisp and dressing delicious. The main course is serve hot and the sides well compliment the meal. The bread served with the meal is great too. It is a great find in a great little mountain town with great people and great food.

“Great steak”
Reviewed October 3, 2013

Was told about this steak house by the owner of hotel we were staying at in Maggie Valley, NC so we road over on a Sat. night. It was very busy and we had about 20-30 min wait. When they seated a party of 30 before us we were not sure if it would be a good night to try. Wow were we surprised, service was great- fast and accurate. Then the steak I got was in the top two I have ever gotten. In our party of 8 everyone said fantastic meal. Will return just to see if it could be that good two times in a row.
