A word from Old Stone Inn
The Old Stone Inn offers a unique dining venue; our rustic stone walls, large wood burning fireplace and antique oak floors contrast nicely with our crisp black and white table linens and comfortable wheat-back Windsor chairs. We are just three minutes from Main Street tucked back in the woods for a feel of being far away from town high up in the mountains. Our menu features many of our "signature" dishes such as rack of lamb, hand-trimmed filet of beef, Butterflied local trout and Low Country shrimp & grits just to name a few. Chef specials are offered each week using fresh, seasonal and, when possible, local ingredients. Don't leave without trying our unique white chocolate bread pudding or one of our other delicious home made desserts. We also offer a full bar and a diverse unique wine selection. Whether you are a first time guest or a valued regular, it is always our goal to make your dining experience a special one.

Old Stone Inn reviews from OpenTable diners
  • A final dinner at the Old Stone Inn
    FoodiesMom1
    Dined on 11/2/2013
    I learned several days before going that the Inn is closing and I am heartbroken. This is one of my favorite places to dine when in Waynesville. Both my husband and I love the quiet and intimate ambiance, the roaring fire , the rustic décor. We both had the lamb which we love and the baked brie. If you have had the pleasure of dining here you know what a good meal it was. If you never took the time to discover this gem you have missed a wonderful experience.

    Old Stone Inn is reliably excellent. We've never had anything but an outstanding meal there. The service is impeccable and the setting is elegant rustic. It is one of our favorite restaurants in all of western NC -- including Asheville.

    Have been to this restaurant many times. Food is always excellent. Atmosphere is fine, especially when there is a fire in the fireplace. Best martini in Western North Carolina. Previous owner had an attitude that had some saying they would never come back. Present ownership is welcoming and friendly. If you were put off, I suggest you give this place another try.

    My parents have been going to Maggie Valley for 28 years. I got on Open Table, where I have had great luck finding excellent restaurants. I found this restaurant my family never knew existed in Waynesville. It is charming and the atmosphere is remote and special even though it is only a minute or two from downtown Waynesville. The service and food was great! We had the local trout and the lamb chops and the bananas foster bread pudding! I am a foodie who has traveled the world and I can say that we had an excellent dining experience. I look forward to visiting next year and years to come!

  • Long wait.

    Dined on 10/19/2013
    During past visits to the Old Stone Inn we found the food to be gourmet. However, this time the food was equal to that of most "Chain" restaurants. Most disturbing was the fact that we waited for ONE HOUR from the time we ordered until we received our food. The waiter was kind enough to adjust our bill accordingly but, the wait was entirely too long.

    We chanced upon the Old Stone Inn dining experience when we stayed at the Inn to hike our little bit of the AT. The restaurant was an incredible surprise not only for its convenience for us but for its own quality in service and delicious well prepared food. A culinary treat at the end of a day of outside activity.

    If you like a rustic and cozy atmosphere, with outstanding food, this place is for you. If its cool out, there will be a fire in the beautiful rock fireplace. The service was great and very accomodating. Old Stone Mountain Lodge is only minutes from downtown Waynesville, and I highly reccomend you going. We will certainly go again!!

    My title says it all. This is not our first visit to the Old Stone Inn and for good reason. We love the quaintness of the dining room, the simplicity of the menu and the quality of the food. I like a restaurant where the service is not rushed, table cloths and water glasses are kept filled.

    Old Stone Inn has changed a bit lately. The salads are large, and we used to order one to split. They would bring it already divided on two plates. Now it comes on one plate placed between us. The trout needed lemon, and I asked for some--they brought two TINY slices of lemon. I had to ask for more than that. Also, the trout had a fish flavor--unusual for fresh mountain trout. My husband had the filet and said it was delicious. Somehow, I didn't have the LOVE IT feeling that I usually have at Old Stone Inn. Still a great place to go in Waynesville for a special occasion.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 8/2/2013
    Overall, the experience was above average. The dining experience was quiet and the wait staff was very friendly, knowledgeable, and accommodating. The restaurant is tucked away in a scenic woodsy area of town and is great for a romantic evening or quiet dinner. The food was good, not outstanding. My guest had the duck and it was a bit under seasoned and not quite as crispy as preferred. I had the rack of lamb and thought it was okay. Tuna appetizer was very good. The bread pudding dessert is well worth the trip. One of the best desserts I've had ever.

    Not far from ours B&B. Not a huge selection on menu and rather pricey. When we inquired about splitting an entree, the charge would,have been $10. My steak was good. Husband and others ordered the dish, which they felt wasn't great....

  • Tucked away in a pretty mountain
    PortojonVIP
    Dined on 7/19/2013
    Tucked away in a pretty mountain setting, this lodge evokes feelings of a bygone era. Sit either in the old stone dining room or outdoors on a cool patio. Menu is basic upscale American with limited choices but all the expected staples were available and cooked as requested. Service was friendly and the courses were served at a nice spacing interval. Then wine list was acceptable if not special and there is a corkage policy. We were very pleased with the find(which we learned about reading reviews on Open Table.)

The food was brought out in a timely fashion and at the perfect temperature. The meal was plated beautifully, and most importantly it was delicious. I highly recommend the Lamb Rack. The ambiance, with the beautiful Christmas decor made our night very special indeed.

    Very nice place tucked away and secluded, but less than a mile from downtown. The atmosphere is rustic chic with a hint of olde tyme lodginess thrown in (big fireplace with animal heads on the wall). The wait staff was attentive and cordial. The cocktails were made perfectly to order. The menu, while not extensive, was well rounded. The food was prepared very well. The only deduction was for the appetizer (bruschetta) which while tasty, was not very substantial for the price, and the vegetables du jour (smashed potatoes, shredded red cabbage, and sauteed snow peas) were pretty minimal, too. You should treat yourself to a dinner at Old Stone Inn as it rivals Waynesville's excellent downtown restaurants and shouldn't be overlooked.
