One of the best restaurants in Waynesville nc. Lovely atmosphere and fine dining always. We love this place and go often. If you want a great meal and love special food go here. Can't say anything bad about this one. Very romantic place.

I visit this restaurant regularly, and I am never disappointed. The food is wonderful and the service is stellar. The menu is farm-to-table, and it changes regularly to reflect seasonally available local ingredients.

I have been to the Frog's Leap previously. But I have been trying to watch my weight, getting ready for the summer. Even though I was dieting, the meal was great.

Is this place still unwelcoming? I read the reviews, pretty terrible how a hostess can influence a restaurant experience to this degree. We will try a few others.....

A Unique Farm to Fork Experience: Innovative Southern Food with a Local Backbone & Home Grown Libations

Frogs Leap Public House is a farm to table country pub at the corner of Church and Montgomery Streets, built in 1918 as the southeast's first Buick dealer just one block south of Main in the heart of historic downtown Waynesville. FLPH is focused on the culture, art, music, wine, beer and especially the food of Western North Carolina.

Like the City of Waynesville itself, FLPH is Southern down to its roots, but draws influences from around the world. The food is fresh and local, the libations are home grown, the music is American and has a beat. FLPH is home to a family with a passion for serving world class food, wine, and spirits in a soulful, comforting atmosphere.
