We've been here a few times now and always been pleased. Good mix of steaks and sandwiches, and the sweet potato fries are great! One of the best places in Waynesville. Expect to wait a little bit during peak season.

Thanks for coming back to see us! I'm thrilled that the steak and sandwiches are always on point, and same with the sweet potato fries. See you next time! Till then, Kathryn Millis

If you are staying in Waynesville and need a quick bite this place is open almost all the time and I had the Ribeye special and it wasn't bad at all. I thought it was priced right and the staff is friendly. Nice family place.

So glad you loved the ribeye, Danielle! We don't think a good steak has to be expensive, and it's great you thought it was a good value. Come back again for another sometime! All the best, Kathryn Millis

Great food, we had excellent steaks and shrimp. Feels like a place locals go. More of a simple atmosphere, but great value. We got two seats fairly quickly after 8pm even on a Saturday.
