“Excellent West Coast style food, in these hills...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2013

Have been numerous times, food has always been terrific! Service can be a little slow when Resturant is very busy but that is as expected.

“Great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 31, 2012

The wait was not too long, and the restaurant was very clean. The food was great. I shared the meat loaf with a friend. The dishes are big enough to share. I shared the creme brulee with my party of 4 and it was very good. I will return here on my next trip to Waynesville.

“Surprising find in quaint town!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2012 via mobile

All entrees ( chicken, meatloaf, crab Mac &cheese, boneless short ribs) were under $16 each. Food had great flavor and not just run of the mill fare. Atmosphere was friendly. Restaurant was also very clean. Would recommend to anyone.

“Outstanding food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 20, 2012

We went to Waynesville over a year ago when we decided to have our daughter's wedding at the Waynesville Inn. We went back several times during our planning phase and each time we ate at the Sweet Onion. It has become a favorite of ours! The food is consistently outstanding, especiall the Tri-tip pot roast. We went with a group of friends and everyone loved what they ordered.

“Great Find”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 18, 2012

Had a really good lunch at The Sweet Onion for the first time. The atmosphere was really nice and gave a warm feeling. The menu had a variety of items to choose from and there seemed to be something for everyone from starters to dessert. Friendly staff and great service. We called our order in and came to the resturant and within minutes of being seated our meal was served. This was a great find and we will definately be back.
