While touring the nearby Western Carolina University campus with two teenage boys, an alumni said that I needed to visit Bogart's if I liked ribs or steak. I like both, so we stopped in for dinner and we were so glad that we did. Before even getting to our steak dinners, we ordered the Jalapeno bombers and found these to... More

The place was packed and we had to park across the road, which made since when we got our food. Very good place for lunch. Enjoyable!

Visited last month and as always, great food options, from a sandwich to a meal. A gathering place for locals and travelers alike. Wait staff were knowledgeable and quick to respond to my needs.

Have been here several times and have never been disappointed. Have tried many of the sandwiches and all are really good and well worth the money.

We grabbed a late lunch at Bogarts after a morning outing. I loved the local atmosphere and the local history books on the table but ours was very worn and food stained (didn't seem very sanitary). Lunch (steak special, steak salad and grilled chicken sandwich) was good but not special. Service too was good but not great. I would recommend... More

I'm sorry to hear you were a bit disappointed this visit, Elizabeth. I appreciate the feedback on the books, and it's a shame if that gave you any reason to doubt our cleanliness standards. I'm happy you enjoyed your entree, and if you ever come back, I hope we can find you the perfect dish. See you then, Kathryn Millis More

We ate dinner here. I had the chicken ceaser salad along with the potato skins. Both were good but really loved the potato skins. The bread they brought to the table was also good. My husband had the chicken Philly he liked it a lot with the exception of it having mushrooms. The place was busy so we were glad... More

We stopped at Bogart's because the parking lot was full and we decided it couldn't be too bad. Pleasantly surprised by the quality of food - every bit as good as the national chains! Service was great - wait staff was courteous and efficient - did not have to wait long for the meal in spite of being crowded. Good... More

The food was o.k..... not great..... the service was really good..... they may want to taste some of their food before it goes out.... mine was so salty i could barely eat it and my friend's food was so bland it was incredible....

Thank eric r
Kathryn M, Owner at Bogart's Restaurant & Tavern, responded to this review

I'm sorry to hear your entree came out too salty, Eric. It's also a shame your friend's wasn't great this time, either. Bland or overly salty food is definitely not the standard around here, and I hope you come back again sometime for another shot. All the best, Kathryn Millis More
