Where to begin?...this is our new "home away from home"! We fell in love with Nut Brown Ale in Asheville and began our mission in finding Blind Squirrel Brewery. We were not disappointed. The food is outstanding. I can honestly say the Beer Cheese Nachos are addicting. The pizza,mmmm! Top that with the best brews we've ever tasted...you'll be hooked!... More

Out for a ride over Roan mountain we happened upon the Lodge and brewery. We took a chance and stopped and so happy we did. The food was fantastic, the brews even better. What made it worth while was the people. I can't say enough about this gem. We had a few brews, and some appetizers and it was great.... More

We had a wonderful lunch - including the blue salad w/chicken, fajita wrap, beer infused cheese soup and blackberry cobbler!! We also accompanied our lunch with outstanding beer from Blind Squirrel! The staff was very friendly and we met some new friends! We also enjoyed the 4th of July parade!

We were biking though the mountains of TN and NC and we spotted the restaurant with outside dining that initially caught our attention. We turned around and were pleased to find it to be a restaurant, brewery, winery, lodging, and water tubing concession all at one location. The owners converted the original general store over a hundred years old to... More

First off, where is Plumtree, North Carolina? And how did we find our way here? Directions couldn't be found on the iPhone, but Google was able to do the trick! Toe River Lodge and Cafe has it all. It is a B&B, a brewery (Blind Squirrel Brewing), billiard hall ($5/hr on the table), bargain shop (make an offer!), disc golf... More

We joined a party of 10 for Thanksgiving and enjoyed ourselves. Our only complaint was we were the last to arrive, but before reservation time and were told rest of party had already gotten their plates to take to table. When we got to the table, we discovered that the rest were drinking wine and talking. Was an awkward situation... More

In a beautiful area that offers a variety of activities. A fun family atmosphere. Great for couples, groups or special events. The restaurant, brewery and wine is all a part of this family business.
