Haywood SmokeHouse

Here at the Haywood Smokehouse we do things the old way, sometimes the hard way to deliver to you a unique and authentic Smokehouse experience.

Thought we would come back and try this restaurant again since we had just tried a new rib restaurant in Maggie Valley-just a few miles away.
Oh their pulled pork is excellent! Generous amounts of this well pulled apart meat with luscious pieces of that great dark “bark”! Needless to say, they will still have our business! Yum!
(But could you please bring back you delicious fried potatoes? Please)?

Panacea Coffeehouse Cafe & Roastery

Reviewed By Mequel F

Stopped in for a coffee and hot chocolate for my daughter so I'm rating based more on service and atmosphere than food. Although I got a slice of quiche which was good and it was served with a bowl of fresh fruit slices. They had a pretty decent menu for lunch...paninis, salads. I would definitely go back to try. The ambiance was awesome. Located in the historic Frog Level of Waynesville, Panacea is a large, open, renovated warehouse next to railroad tracks. Lots of seating, including table seating and conversational sitting areas with sofas. Outdoor seating too. You order and pick up your order at the counter and bus your own table. Very casual, comfortable.

The ice cream was mediocre for the price and the dog in the parlor didn’t add to the taste. The worker didn’t provide a solution by letting the dog stay. The owner of the dog said if we didn’t like it, to go back to FL. WELCOME to Waynesville! Guess there are other parlors.

Surrounded by antiques, some for sale. The smell of the many foods they served was intoxicating. No table service. You get your own drinks. Very popular with locals and tourists alike.
Bread was so good and fresh. I got the meatball sandwich, which if it was not so good, I could not have finished it. Very generous.
Lots of seating on two levels. Just off the main shopping street.

The Sweet Onion

Reviewed By Brad S - Chicago, Illinois, United States

We wandered in mid-afternoon on a Thursday. Main street was packed, so it was nice to park on a side street close by. It's a nice interior, friendly greeting, and the seats are all along windows. The menu has many tempting options. I tried the lunch special, a chicken sandwich concoction with chili mayo, bacon, onion, queso cheese. If the chicken had not been fried with a very sweet coating, it would have been quite tasty. The sweetness really killed it. Once I scraped off the breading eating leftovers, it was pretty good. The Parmesan fries were excellent. Our other order of an Angus burger with various toppings was much better, and the cucumber/tomato salad was fabulous. For being pretty empty mid-afternoon, our server kept disappearing past the hostess station while we watched our food come up and sit for several minutes. A second server even collected our food and served it to us. Not terrible, just a little inattentive.

Although I had a full breakfast, the biscuits were the best part - and when I say biscuits, I mean just one as they are large. Friendly staff and good menu.

We serve weekday lunch specials, and our full menu every evening and weekends with a special Sunday brunch.

My husband and I were traveling and found this seafood restaurant via Yelp. Had high rating and we were not disappointed. We shared the creamy seafood chowder full of crab, shrimp and lobster and then a plate of fried flounder and hushpuppies. Excellent tender fish and sweet hush puppies. We also ordered a High Country Shrimp out of curiosity. For a small local favorite restaurant this dish is really gourmet. Blackened grits cake tasty and crispy topped with succulent shrimp and lobster in a buttery leek sauce. Really excellent! It’s worth your time stopping by for a good meal. The desserts looked great but we were too full. I only gave four stars as the place is very old and a bit dusty. A little sprucing up and modernization would improve the ambiance.

Small town meets upscale ,understated farm to table restaurant. We had a great meal and great service. You walk in and are just not quite sure what to expect but truly delicious food. Very unique offerings. We had a main course and a small plate. Trout, Ribs and Gruyere. Drinks were great everything was great. We will be back next time.
