Always enjoy a good meal. Wish they would change the menu more often. Had the lamb shank and it was delicious, cooked perfect.

I would drive back to Waynesville just to eat in this restaurant again. Although very crowded (popular), the service was great and the food came quickly. Don't forget to check out the dessert case in the front!

The grouper piccata is so delicious. My husband loved the crab cakes with risotto. My daughter in law loved the deconstructed lasagne, and our son loved the lamb. No disappointments. Good wine selection too.
