We really enjoyed our dining experience. The wait staff and chef were friendly and attentive. And the food was excellent. We can't wait to return in the future.
had a wonderful anniversary dinner here. Shrimp Scampi for an appetizer,
Rib eye Steak, roasted potatoes and broccolini, Beef Tenderloin, roasted potatoes and grilled asparagus. Everything was well seasoned and cooked to perfection.
Service was excellent. Waitress and staff was very attentive. Highly recommended. Sara was a very good waitress and we enjoyed on Sunday as well at the Tap House, another restaurant at Waynesville Inn and Golf Resort and Spa.
We have been coming to the Waynesville Inn for thirty years. The dining experience this year in the Cork and Cleaver was one of our most memorable because of the friendliness of the staff and the quality of the food. I had a good number of our20+ guests tell me they felt the food this year surpassed the quality of previous years. We were served various items on the menu, and by all indications that I received the food was excellent. The servers were pleasant and very helpful, but the service was slow. Part of that is that our group all arrived at the same time and had not pre-ordered except on Sunday evening..
My only complaint, and it is not serious as the staff took care of the problem, was the fact that our reservation for Sunday evening in the Tap Room downstairs had not been communicated to the Reservation Book. We were not on the book until I happened to mention it to our Sunday lunch server who checked and found no record of our having made a reservation. However, the staff rallied around when we took early orders for the Sunday evening meal, and delivered the order to the kitchen where our meals were delivered in a timely manner.
We have been here several times over the past few years and it always is such a pleasant experience from the service; ambiance; view, food and pricing. They have limited days and hours so check before you go. They have something on the menu for everyone. The filet is a favorite but this time we each had fish dinners. We shared a scallop appetizer and a shrimp scampi appetizer. Both very nicely done and presented. Scallops were done just perfectly as was the rather large shrimp in the scampi. Caesar salad was fresh and just enough. My wife had the Mahi special which was grilled to perfection. I had the trout what was just as big as her fish and likewise done to perfection. Could not have asked for a better evening. Thanks Cork and Cleaver
We truly enjoyed a lovely dinner served on the covered patio at Cork & Cleaver, overlooking the golf course with a view of the mountains. Our server, Alan made us feel very welcome and provided excellent personable service. The food and drinks were quite good. We will be back.
We went off season on a Tuesday night and were the only people in the restaurant all night long. I told my wife I had rented the restaurant just for her but she didn't believe me. Still they could have canceled our reservation but they were fully staffed. Unbelievably good food. Obviously excellent service. Would be glad to go back. I would even wait in line. A+++
Service was good (drink orders and clearing plates). Buffet tables were set up nicely with a good variety. However, some of the food was very disappointing (too salty to eat). Wanted to try before booking for a large Christmas group, but won't go back.
There was a great variety of food from roast beef to turkey and macaroni and cheese to brussels sprouts and turkey dressing. There were oysters on the half shell, boiled shrimp and a variety of fruits. There was garden salad as well as Caesar's salad. The desserts were varied as well. The best part of my meal was the pecan pie, yummy! Everything else I had was good, but not exceptional. The front part of the restaurant was cold and the service was fine for such a large crowd of folks.
Staff did a great job when we brought our 97 year old Father for Thanksgiving brunch. They took very good care of us!
The Cork and Cleaver had a small, but diverse menu. Nothing too pretentious. We both had very nice salads and steaks cooked just as we ordered. A small, but decent wine list too. Our waiter was excellent -- helpful, friendly, and attentive.
