Appetizing Appetizers in Waynesville


Here in Waynesville, we pride ourselves on being a bunch of foodies. That means we know a thing or two about a good meal. And if we’re being honest, one of the best things about a meal is sharing it with others. So next time you find yourself here, grab your crew of friends and check out these places for delectable appetizers and sharable dishes:

Chew with a Brew 

Boojum Brewing Co.

If you’ve got heart eyes for truffle fries, you’ll love Boojum Brewing Co. While you sit and sip with friends, enjoy some brewery classics like wings and pretzels. Or try some shareables that are outside of the box like whistle pigs or their farmhouse stack.

Frog Level Brewing

For some tasty craft brews and snacks to share creekside, check out Frog Level Brewing. They’ve got soft pretzels, boiled peanuts, and more. If you like seafood, try their trout dip made from smoked fish from the local Sunburst Trout Farms.

American Favorites


This place has pizza, tacos, and cold beer on tap. What more could you ask for? An elevator just for their pizza? Why yes, they’ve got that too! Check out their impressive list of appetizers to share with your hungry group of travelers. You’re sure to find something for everyone to love.

The Water’n Hole Bar & Grill

Here they call their appetizers “teazers.” You and your group of foodies can feast upon loaded fries, onion petals, buffalo chicken dip, and more. Just thinking about those tasty options sounds like quite a tease to us!

Seafood Starters

Low Tide

If those hunger pains have you feeling a little crabby, stop on over to Low Tide for some sharable meals from the sea. Devour your choice of crab cakes, peel and eat shrimp, and some other delicious dishes for the whole table.

Maggie’s Galley

Another great stop for some seafood favorites is Maggie’s Galley. They’ve got oysters, shrimp, calamari, and more satisfying starters. We are melting just thinking about that tasty seafood covered in hot salty butter.

We know your mouth is already watering just reading this, so we won’t keep you. Join us for a taste of Waynesville flavor. Don’t forget to let your phone eat first and tag us using #Waynesville or @VisitNCSmokies.
