Dining In & Around Waynesville

From intimate farm-to-table fine dining experiences to locals’ favorite eateries, what defines Waynesville’s restaurants is freshness and innovative preparations. The Waynesville & Maggie Valley, NC area offers a marvelous array of restaurants for lunch and dinner, with quality and variety that far surpasses expectations for small mountain towns. In the summer, and during the fall leaf color season, we recommend making your dinner reservations in advance. This is particularly important on weekends and holidays, and we will be pleased to make reservations for you. Also, be sure to check hours on Sundays through Tuesdays as a lot of places are not open all 7 days of the week.  We’ve also included some great options in surrounding towns like Maggie Valley, Canton, Silva and others.  We have not included information about Asheville restaurants, but without a doubt, downtown and greater Asheville has one of the best food and beverage scenes in the country!

Be sure to check out our detailed Waynesville Dining Guide (link below!).  We’ve laid our our favorite spots with more detailed descriptions of the amazing food scene in our wonderful mountain town!
