I have eaten here many times over the years. Went back last night with my wife, and had an excellent meal and a great experience. My steak was the best restaurant steak I've had in a long time-cooked perfectly medium rare as ordered, and not over-seasoned or over-marinated. My wife had the coconut shrimp, which were also excellent. The appetizers, sides, salads, and dessert were very good; and our server, Brittany, was perfect. The atmosphere is always good, nothing at all to complain about. As we have come to expect, just another great meal at Bogart's.

Not sure I would return, the food wasn't to my liking. I like my steaks on the thicker side, these were too thin for me. I had the chicken dish, didn't care for. But the beer was great and so was the wine and bread. Staff very pleasant

Janet, it's a shame your steak wasn't quite what you were expecting. I think we have something on our menu for everyone, and I hope you stop by again sometime for another try. -Kathryn Millis

This is a local restaurant that has a large menu to select from. They have everything from burgers, ribs & chicken to salad, pasta, steaks and full seafood dinners. The four of us each got something different and everyone was very happy with what they ordered. Everything was cooked just right and seasoned to taste. The service was good and the atmosphere was good old down-home casual.

I went there years ago with my mother when we stayed at a bed and breakfast in Waynesville. I think we went every night... I decided to take my son there. My meal was fabulous again. The kid meal wasn't so great according to him, and I admit I tried the potato chips and wasn't interested in eating them either. He ate the grilled cheese, but he said it wasn't that good. I am not sure why. However, their rib eye was seasoned to perfection, and their bread, salad, and baked potato were as good as ever. I would go again but get there early. Parking is very limited on a weekend night.
