    Very limited menu with absolutely no substitutions. My coffee was cold and the cream curdled in the cup—even with a second cup. It was a disappointing experience.

    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.

    I would like to say that I enjoyed my visit or even that I got to try the food, but I didn't. After MAKING A RESERVATION for 1pm, I got to the restaurant at 12:40 by myself with my 4 year old son and 1 year old daughter and checked in with the hostess who was frazzled beyond belief. Honestly? I'm not surprised. The poor woman was running around like a chicken with her head cut off and not getting any help from management. Now I know things are crazy in the food industry world right now so I just will let that part slide. I waited patiently and asked her if the table that was right next to me was available (it had six seats) and told her if it wasn't then I understood and could wait. She said it was reserved for someone at 12:45. I told her, Ok, No Problem. A few minutes later she said "I am going to go ahead and seat you." Ok. Whatever works. So she seats me at the aforementioned table - I sit down with my kiddos, get them all situated with toys and a high chair and their water bottles. Server comes over so I order a cocktail and start to peruse the menu. The hostess then comes to me and says, "I don't want to make you mad, but here in a minute I'm going to have to ask you to move. But don't worry. I will help you move all of your stuff, but I gave someone else's table to you." Um... Ok... At this point I'm already a bit confused but then I realize there is a whole party of people just standing at the hostess stand watching me, and realize they are waiting for me to move. WTH?? So I get up and go ask the hostess "Is this your group whose table I apparently have?" She said "yes" so I said, "Go ahead and give it to them. It's too awkward to sit here and have them stare at me." I grabbed my kids and my stuff and left. Once I got outside I just started to cry. I was SO embarrassed. The rest of my party was walking up at that moment and asked what happened - I told them - and we went and enjoyed a nice, stress free meal at Boojum. We won't be back.

    My wife is on a very strict AIP diet and the server was fantastic by mixing and matching salad components for a few of their menu salads + perfectly cooked and special request seasoning of the salmon to meet her needs. Above and beyond. Thanks for making my wife's meal enjoyable, Oh, BTW my Father's Day brunch item was fantastic. The Fried chicken, biscuit, pimento cheese, and sausage grave in a bowl, I'd do it again in a heart beat!

    We had brunch on Sunday and it was fabulous. We both had the salmon with potato hash and fried eggs topped with hollandaise sauce. It was such a different brunch and we enjoyed it very much. We're looking forward to having dinner here soon.

    It took 50 minutes from when we sat down to get our salads due to technical difficulties with their ticketing system apparently. They did offer to comp us dessert to compensate, so kudos for them. The food was all good or great.

    The food was good but as for the service, it was non existent. Besides feeling forgotten at our table, I watched another table get up and go to the bar to get a drink, I had thought about it myself it get my water glass refiled, and a couple that they sat outside with menus finally left after about half an hour of waiting to see a waiter.

    Food was good. Collard greens were a little to sweet. Sweetness overpowered the taste of the greens. You need coasters for your drinks. Water glasses were sweating and puddling on table.

    Food came out quick… the collard green casserole was delicious. Only issue we had was the noise level. It’s a huge open room so all noise is seriously amplified. The screaming baby through our dinner made the experience less enjoyable.

    We visit frequently throughout the year and usually excellent, but a big shift this time around, almost like there had been a culture change or leadership change. Hostess only greeted us asking if we had reservations, which we did, just not the most friendly greeting. Asked waitress about beers and was shown the beer list and told they also have the normal domestic b@tch beers (rhymes with witch). Off verbiage for a nicer restaurant. Out of the duck and red wine by the glass I wanted. Asked to sub fries instead of potatoes and got the answer that chef Nick doesn't allow substitutions (maybe he should if he runs out of things). Food was good, but just a disappointing experience, especially for an anniversary celebration.

    We went for an early dinner and got right in , however I would definitely make reservation, especially now with tourist seasoning starting. They have a nice variety on their menu, most of them true southern dishes.. Usually a Chef special which never disappoints. Great sit down bar area with a nice selection of local beers on tap a varied wine selection and a craft cocktail menu. The waitress we had , Jessica , was so attentive , interesting and knowledgeable about the menu and bar selections. Definitely a excellent choice for a real Southern type meal in the heart of Waynesville!
