Excellent location in downtown Waynesville, NC. Wait staff friendly, food is good. Nice place to just hang with friends and visit.

You are best to order the local ale. The food is okay, but their brew makes up for anything lacking! A great place for a toast with friends.

I had steak and cheese, companions had turkey Chipotle wraps. Tots and brussel sprouts were delicious as sides! Beer also delish. Don't miss this one!

Nachos are the best I've ever had. Fish & chips are great. Never had a bad meal. Large variety of beer. You can get beer canned to go so you don't have to buy a big growler.

This place has a wonderful atmosphere and great craft beer. It is definitely a popular place in Waynesville so a wait may happen, but completely worth it.
