Just returned from lunch. Food was amazing. Last month I brought my parents and great friends there for dinner. Was the second time my parents have eaten there and have determined hands down it is their favorite place in Waynesville to eat.

I appreciate that the food was clean and simple but the ribeye was not a $30 steak. Someone needs to learn how saute green beans. The steak was oddly sweet.
