I would drive back to Waynesville just to eat in this restaurant again. Although very crowded (popular), the service was great and the food came quickly. Don't forget to check out the dessert case in the front!

The grouper piccata is so delicious. My husband loved the crab cakes with risotto. My daughter in law loved the deconstructed lasagne, and our son loved the lamb. No disappointments. Good wine selection too.

This is a great small restaurant! The homemade pasta is unreal, and the goat cheese risotto balls are out of this world!

Always a special evening and fine dining at its best. I go here often for special occasions. I tell all my guests at Emerald Gate Farm about The Chef's Table and they all thank me later.
