    Throughout the town there are several metal sculptures. When we were there back in October, 2009 we saw a dinosaur and some Blue Grass Musicians along with a number of others.

    As we walked the town on our last night there we saw this gas station/sculpture garden a block off the main street.

    We didn't get too much chance to see things during the evening, but the next morning we went back and saw a little bit of the Sculpture Garden before we left town.

    We arrived in Waynesville about 6:00 p.m. in the evening after having gone on a very interesting tour in Asheville, North Carolina about 22 miles away. For 3 days in the area we were trying out our 2nd Bed and Breakfast of our life and year in town. After we got settled into our room and met the host and hostess of our Bed and Breakfast we rode the short distance into downtown to get our dinner for the evening.

    The first place we thought we might want to eat was having a private function that evening (we tried it 2 nights later), so we walked around a little bit and came across the Sweet Onion.

    We had left our cameras back at the B & B. Thus no pictures for this evening.

    Favorite Dish: As we entered and passed the tables everything looked and smelled delicious. On the way back to our table we passed right by the open kitchen which had tables across from it and faced out onto the main entrance way.

    I started out with an oatmeal porter beer which was light and flavorful. Sue and I each ordered a little something before our main meal. We had a wonderful full flavored French Onion Soup along with a simple garden salad.

    For our main courses that evening Sue opted for the Halibut Special while I went with one of the specialties of the house, the Fried Chicken.

    Again, writing this 2 years after the fact one tends to forget a little bit about the flavors, but I do remember that the dishes were filling and flavorful.

    Check out the website which does have a listing of their current menu items.

    On Main St. Decent selection, good quality and v.good specials. Sit down, but not fancy. Very crowded during tourist sesaon, but nice in the off times for us locals.
    Decent and not too ripped of a wine list.

    Reservations are not exactly taken, but gets your name higher on "the list".

    Walk Ins easy during non-summer/fall season.

    Favorite Dish: Salmon

    There is a very nice fancy restaurant that serves absolutely great food, and it's right across the street from O'Malley's.  It's called Stefano's and I mentioned it earlier.

    As you can see from this picture, Waynesville is a car city.  You have to have a car to get here, but once in the small downtown, main street is walk able.

    We spent a few days in the area. On our second full day we were taking a ride through the Blue Ridge Mountains. On our way out of town we passed this store by the 2 Steeplechase Towers and saw that they sold English Toffee (one of my favorites).

    So after our day cruising the countryside we stopped in and bought a small container of English Toffee.

    What to buy: English Toffee - Whatever size you think you'll be able to eat.

    According to their website the toffee has no preservatives. So eat it quick (like you'll have a choice after you have the first taste)

    Favorite thing: A definite stop for any visitor to Waynesville would be main street. Wonderful restaurants and shopping in an old town feel. Stop by the Mast General Store for great old fashioned items and
    antiques, plus new clothes. There is a wonderful candy store connected that's called 'The Candy Barrel'.  The place really gives you a feel for the area.  There is also
    a wilderness shop downstairs from inside the Mast General Store where you can get maps, gear, or food for numerous available hiking/mountain climbing trails in the local area.  You can see
    the mountains in the background of the first picture on this page.
