Had a family lunch at Bogart’s. Positive: the waitress was friendly and attentive. Negatives: the food was disappointing. Had steaks cooked to much and too little, under cooked baked potatoes, and cold greasy cheese fries. Was not crowded so can’t blame the poor quality on...More

I judge any place on the freshness of the baked potato, especially if the claim to have a good steak. The ones we were served shouldn't have left the kitchen. We will return to Waynesville, but not Bogarts.More

Stopped in for a late lunch. Everything was good-from the service to the salad dressing. Had a friendly server, too. Chicken tenders came in a large portion and the kid’s cheeseburgers were a good and ample size. Chicken salad sandwich was tasty. The house salad...More
