It was the best of meals. It was the worst of meals. All wrapped up in one. My wife got the special which was outstanding as the potato soup and grilled cheese on sourdough was nothing short of excellent (and that is rare for me to say that). My burger, however, was really disappointing because the burger was well done... More

Nachos are the best I've ever had. Fish & chips are great. Never had a bad meal. Large variety of beer. You can get beer canned to go so you don't have to buy a big growler.

The beer selection was very good, as was the atmosphere and service. The food was not very good. The chili was bland, the Ceasar salad had a little too much mustard-spiced dressing on it, and the salsa tasted more like spaghetti sauce than salsa.

My wife and I had a great time exploring downtown Waynesville and we decided on having dinner at the Tipping Point Tavern. It was an excellent choice! Their menu offered many delicious choices at reasonable prices. They are also a micro-brewery so we ordered a flight of their brews. They were all excellent! My wife ordered the veggie quesadilla made... More

We've been to the Tipping Point on a few occasions & have been pleased. This time was an ok visit. It seems that their menu has changed along with ownership. The Rueben sandwich was ok, a little salty for our taste, & chicken enchiladas were non eventful. The craft brew was acceptable but nothing spectacular. Not sure if we will... More

This place has a wonderful atmosphere and great craft beer. It is definitely a popular place in Waynesville so a wait may happen, but completely worth it.

This was our last stop in our exploration of the Asheville craft beer scene since it wasn't far from our hotel. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful. We were able to order a couple flights and sample nearly every beer they offered. They had every style one could hope for on tap, from tame lagers and brown ales to a... More

Friday at lunchtime, we got the last seats. Friendly but somewhat distracted wait staff. My wife's reuben was tasty but a little dry. My chicken enchiladas were interesting, but did not taste like any enchilada I'd had before. I had two beers. The first was very good (porter), the second not so much. I might be back, but there are... More

Very friendly, and the food is tasty! Be careful, the portions are huge. Many items are available in half orders!

A buddy and I stopped in for lunch while on a motorcycle trip. We first saw another pub that had a pretty long wait. This one didn't and since we didn't want to spend too much time sitting we took a chance. Well that gamble did not pay off. We ordered a drink and food. 30 minutes later we hadn't... More
