Best Places to Eat in Waynesville NC

Waynesville NC has some really great places to eat. In the mountains of western NC there is some fine food, not all of it is family style and southern. I love good food and great service. Ambience is also important for the occasion.

Big Mountain Barbeque

79 Elysinia Ave, Waynesville, NC 28786

The BBQ is excellent and cooked the old southen way, long and slow. The sandwhich is served without sauce and is piled high. Lots of sauces to choose from, so try all of them. The place is small in a neighborhood setting and is rustic, nothing fancy. Just great BBQ>

Maggie's Galley Oyster Bar

49 Howell Mill Rd, Waynesville, NC 28786

Great seafood and service. The seafood is the best in this area. Not as good as the beach, but good. The seafood chowder is one of my favorites. The atmosphere is very rustic. Scary on the outside, nice on the inside.

Sweet Onion

39 Miller St, Waynesville, NC 28786

The restaurant is more upscale and has large portions. The menu is varied and has daily specials. The onion soup is so flavorfull and lots of cheese on top. The Ahi Tuna appetizer is a meal in itself. The salads can feed four. Great service, food and atmosphere.
