5 New Restaurants In and Around Waynesville NC
Pigeon River Grill
101 Park Street | Canton, NC 28716 | http://bearwatersbrewing.com/index.php?page=food
The closest to East Fork Ranch and one of our favorites. Housed inside the local craft brewery of BearWaters Brewing Company, this is a great place to unwind after a day of adventure. Family friendly with outdoor seating on the river.
117 Main St, Canton, NC 28716 | https://www.southern-porch.com/
Housed in one of the most beautiful buildings in downtown Canton, The Imperial Hotel. They serves everything from scratch. Menu items include southern fare staples such as shrimp and grits, fried chicken and some of the most delicious fried green tomatoes you’ll ever taste.
111 N Main St, Waynesville, NC 28786 | http://birchwoodhall.com/
Think southern traditional dishes like Chicken and Biscuit, meatloaf, or shrimp and grits with a farm-to-table twist. Full bar with a great list of handcrafted cocktails, and a nice selection of beers and wines. Awesome location on Main Street in the heart of downtown Waynesville.
Firefly Taps and Grill
128 N Main St, Waynesville, NC 28786 | https://www.fireflytapsandgrill.com/
What we love the most about this restaurant on Main St. in downtown Waynesville is their Sunday brunch. We also love their lunch and dinner menues, but Sunday brunch is a tradition in our family and Firefly Taps & Grill delivers one of the best brunches in the area.
Luna Mexican Kitchen
1863 S Main St, Waynesville, NC 28786 | (828) 246-6666
Modern Mexican fare from the mountains! Great salsa’s, some really tasty main dishes, and of course margarita’s. They also have a great beer and wine list.
