Wife and I went for dinner. Both got burgers and they were good. Definitely better than fast food but nothing to knock your socks off, and a little pricey. Tea was sweet as was the dessert which is proper in the south. Parking is a challenge was my only negative.

I'm glad you liked your burgers, Alex! You're right -- sweet tea and dessert are how we do it around here. We know the parking situation isn't the best, but I hope it wasn't too much of an inconvenience. Hope to see you soon, Kathryn Millis More

We arrived about 6p on a Sat and beat the crowd. At $19, the 12oz Ribeye (w/ one side and salad) was reasonably priced...the meal was average, nothing special. I'm not saying I wouldn't go back, it just wouldn't be my first choice.

I'm glad you managed to avoid a wait, but it's a little disappointing that you weren't too impressed with your ribeye. We want to be better than average, and hopefully, next time we'll do even better. Hope to see you again, Kathryn Millis More

The kids enjoyed finding the bear in the dining room. Our group tried the steak, chicken tenders, and ribeye steak sandwich. All was very good as well as the beer on tap.

We had filet mignon and it was grisly. Sides were mediocre and kid's steak was not edible! Food was overpriced and disappointing.

Kathryn M, Owner at Bogart's Restaurant & Tavern, responded to this review

Candace, it's a shame that your steaks weren't what you were looking for. We'd never want to serve overcooked steak, and I'm sorry yours came out that way this time. I hope you'll give us another try sometime -- I know we can cook those just right in the future. Hope to see you again, Kathryn Millis More

Went there because of the reviews....a little disappointed, place is nice, waitress was nice (never told us about any specials but very pleasant), my husband and I each had the 8 oz ribeye....his was tough and chewy and had way too much salt on it (must of been a smoker who cooked it), mine was ok...sweet potato was very good....

Thanks for stopping in during your visit, Debbie! It's a shame that you and your husband weren't too impressed with your ribeyes -- they should never be anything but tender. We'll make sure to get those right if you ever stop by again. I am glad you liked the sweet potato, though, and it's great your server made you feel... More

Much of the appeal of the "better" chain restaurants is consistency and variety of menu options. They do it with corporate support, guidance and attention to detail. Bogarts accomplishes the same without anything like that. Somebody is working hard and doing their job. Look at the parking lot...people notice...I expect it will roll on....reward the locals!!

This is a real country cooking experience in a log style restaurant with cuddly bears watching over things (you will see what I mean when you visit!). This is a popular eating place for locals which, for me, says it all. A great atmosphere with friendly, helpful staff and reasonable prices. We always eat here when visiting Waynesville.
