    Had an early dinner with another couple. The beet and goat cheese salad was excellent and too big to finish for two of us. Had two trout dinners, country fried portobello, and fried chicken. Large portions, very tasty, and interesting sides. Everyone was very happy with their meals. Service was friendly and good. We've been before and we'll definitely go again...

    I was craving some fried chicken and y’all did not disappoint! The pimento cheese biscuit, and of course the chicken smothered with that delicious peppered gravy what else could you ask for? Kudos to the chef!!

    We are in Waynesville for six weeks and Birchwood was one of the top suggestions from locals we know. The menu is FUN and varied. We had the tomato pie, goat cheese fritter and fried portobello as shared entrees, to be different, and they were great! Hope to go back before we leave

    My husband had the meatloaf with potatoes which was good and a large portion. I had a hard time finding a healthy option. I had the roasted chicken breast but it was very dry and too much cream sauce. I wanted the trout but the server said it has bones in it. We shared the "tomato pie". It was not a pie at all, nor was it a casserole. It was soupy chopped stewed tomatoes, with three tomato slices on top sprinkled with cheese and bread crumbs. It was not very good.

    Ribeye was absolutely perfect and tender. However I dislike the practice of placing the meat on top of the accompaniments. Our server was good, friendly. Cocktail delicious.

    Visited for the first time and was very impressed with the quality and flavors of the food. We had 3 different entrees, which I tried all three, and each one was unique with great flavors. I would have been happy to have been served any of them. I would highly recommend and will definitely return again.

    Went on a Sunday… they have a different menu only on Sundays… the food looked good … but was horrible… chicken was dry, sauce had no flavor… This restaurant needs to stick to its regular menu.. we have been there in the past on a weekday and the food was really good.

    This was our first visit to Birchwood Hall. The service was excellent - our server was attentive and engaging without being overbearing. The food was DELICIOUS (pimento cheese burger and the meatloaf), as were the drinks. Very happy to have found this gem and will gladly return in the future.

    The trout, duck wings, steak and sangria were really good. The chicken and biscuits was good except the bottom of the biscuit was very hard. But the Apple crisp could’ve used a little more crisp, but in general, was very good. The service was perfect, attentive and timely.

    We typically love Birchwood.but they were way off this time. Service was poor, took over an hour for appetizers, waters went empty and then when the food finally came
