    We were in town for a family getaway and tried this restaurant. It was lovely. The service is great and the food was delicious. We tried the duck, the fried chicken and the trout as well as the duck wings and the chicken liver pate. We finished off with banana pudding. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

    The food portions were very large. The food had some really flavorful sauces and fresh ingredients. Why the low overall scores? SALT! Both dishes were extremely salty, one was so bad we had to send it back. The other dish was VERY salty and very peppery. Neither spice was needed because the sauces were so good. I’m not sure why they put that much salt in the food, it really ruined our meal. The beet salad was terrific though. They did give us a 25% discount for the issues with the food. I’m not sure I will be going back- it’s a shame really.

    Good food, had brunch items: chicken and biscuit, smothered 3 cheese grits, omlettes. All were very good, felt like there should have been more grits in the dish, but it was very good. The Bloody Mary Gravy, is really good

    We had a good time. The bartender, Ethan, was really helpful with his suggestions. We started with the goat cheese fritters. There were 3 to the order which seemed a little small. The seasonal pepper jelly that came with it was on the sweet side and a nice complement to the tanginess of the goat cheese. G had the fried chicken sandwich and he really liked it. It came with hand-cut fries which had this seasoning on it that contained nutmeg. It was definitely unexpected but a little too nutmeg-forward. I would ask for it without the seasoning. I had the chicken pot pie and it was to die for! It was the epitome of comfort food. I wanted to go swimming in the pot pie gravy. It came with a side salad of butter lettuce and honey walnut vinaigrette. To me, the dressing had too much red wine vinegar. I had read about their 3 shareable items, which were: Dad’s Tomato Pie, Macaroni and Cheese, and the Collard Green Casserole. We ordered those to-go and brought them home. All had a faintly sweet note to them because of the biscuit crumble on top. The mac and cheese is a stick-to-your-ribs dish that could be a meal in itself and had a nice smoky flavor. The collards were incredible and the tomato pie was very good. If you’re in the Waynesville area, I would highly recommend Birchwood Hall!

    We had the chicken fried chicken that was on the lunch menu. It was absolutely delicious. BUT, the service was poor. We had a reservation for 1:00 and arrived at 12:55. We were seated immediately, but after 15 min. and no waiter we finally said something to the hostess. She went and spoke to the person responsible for our table and he finally came. This was the person who had been glancing our way from the time we were seated, just choosing not to acknowledge us. The couple next to us was unhappy, also the same waiter.
