Wow! We were headed to another restaurant but when we got there they were closed on Mondays. So we saw that this restaurant was not too far away. We're so glad the other restaurant was closed. Bogart's has an awesome atmosphere. The place is really nice. Our waitress "Nubian Princess" sorry we forgot her name but my husband called her... More

Ordered rib eye sandwich with sweet potato fries and a portabello sandwich with baked sweet potato. Service was prompt even though every table was taken, and the waitress was super pleasant. The food was excellent. The fries were cooked perfectly and had no oily taste to them at all. We will return and try more items on the menu. The... More

Noel, I'm happy you loved the sandwich and sweet potato fries! Those are both big hits around here, and it's great the fries were cooked just how you like them. I appreciate the feedback on the restrooms -- making sure they're properly maintained is a huge priority of ours. Cleanliness is exteremely important to us! I hope you make it... More

Went to dinner after golfing all day. Bogarts is the place to go. The steaks are outstanding. The beer is cold. Everyone in our party ordered a steak. Nobody went away disappointed. the food there was fantastic. The waitress staff was right on point. Very nice place to unwind.

We took another trip with our family to NC. We stopped at Bogarts for lunch. We all enjoyed our food. Thanks! Our waitress was great! My only disappointment was finding out they still do not serve real butter. Solution: I will either pack my own or I will not order anything that requires butter, lol.

Looks big on the outside but cramped and hard to navigate on the inside. Lots of locals at this watering hole. Food is adequate and plentiful...beer and mixed drinks are what they should be. Lots of kids. Small country combo plays often up in the rafters stage. Expect noisy, but pretty good as a whole. Very diverse customer base.

It's really great to hear that overall you enjoyed your meal with us, Tanner, but I'm sorry to see that it was only about average. I'm not sure exactly where we had room for improvement, but we never want to stop short of perfect for our guests. I hope we'll have another chance to fully win you over someday! Best... More

Everytime we are in or near Wayneville, we go to Bogart's for the steak. Best steak for the price. Has become a traditional stop.

I'm disappointed to hear this, especially from a regular guest of ours. You should never expect slow service or cold entrees -- that's not how we do things around here.
