Stoney Knob is an awesome Mediterranean/American restaurant away from the crowds of downtown Asheville. The decor and ambiance inside make it a special place with several rooms to give the feel of an intimate cafe. Then add a large wine list and a varied menu prepared to perfection, and you have one great "diner"!! Reservations recommended.

As always the food was very good, service excellent but......on the wall was a big screen with Anime cartoon running. It was very annoying and seemed totally out of place. Both my friend and I mentioned to the server. Have been going S.K. for years and always take visitors but may reconsider if this is a permanent fixture.

We try and come here every time we pass through Asheville or stay. It is a little bit out of the way but worth the trip! So many different things to choose from. My wife loves the shrimp and grits. I try different things each time we have been here over the past 10 years. This time I had the... More

I remember back in the day when this was a small family owned diner operated out of a tiny "diner" car, which is why these many years later that it still has that family feeling--warm and welcoming. While the business has been passed down to the next generation that has expanded both menu and venue! A wonderful Sunday brunch, late... More

Ever changing menu of interesting flavor combinations in a funky atmosphere. Plan on a wait on Sat night and Sun brunch but many locals eat here during the week or earlier in the day. Lunch is the best value but dinner is my favorite. I feel like I'm in a big city in another country dining on the finest... I... More

This very funky little diner in Woodfin, just north of Asheville, is our favorite eatery in Asheville. The décor is so creative and funky with each room of the restaurant in a different theme. No matter what theme you choose, the food is always delicious and the service always top notch. We've been here 3 times and never disappointed. The... More

I couldn't decide between the two specials because both seemed so delectable. I asked the waitress which was better and she said well the chicken had sold out, so I went with the fish. What a pleasant and unique dinning and culinary surprise! It's evident that there's a trained Chef in the kitchen, as the food was prepared meticulously and... More
