Boondocks Brewing Tap Room & Restaurant opened our doors on August 1, 2012 with a mission to provide a fresh, unique and engaging destination for residents as well as visitors to Ashe County. We are a locally owned and employee run small business that is Committed to Excellence and Dedicated to our Community. We are Ashe County's first and only commercially licensed Craft Beer Brewery and we brew small batches of hand crafted beers weekly. We have one of the State's best craft beer selections on tap and in bottles in addition to having our own beer on tap. In 2013 we added an outside dining area that locals call the "Boon Deck". In 2014 we opened our new "Brew Haus" just up the street to provide a venue for large parties, special occasions, offsite catering, corporate events and fund raisers in addition to providing much needed expansion space for our brewing operations.

There are many selections of beer on tap and we all enjoyed sampler tastings of many beers. We decided on burgers and sandwiches and felt that the food was good. We would certainly return.

What a wonderful addition to downtown West Jefferson NC! Great pub atmosphere with a gorgeous outdoor deck and two bar areas inside! Great beers on tap and the food is far more than what you would expect for pub food! Its a restaurant for every age and families welcome! We will be back again and again!

Good atmosphere -- average food. For those of us who watch what we eat, there are few healthy choices.

Our party of four chose burgers from the extensive menu, and we all ate every single bite! I am a "burger aficionado" and these are some of the best. Service was very friendly and fast. A place down the street says "best burger in town," but it's false advertising.😄

Not only a great restaurant, it's a micro brewery! The bar area is fantastic, menu is excellent both for lunch and dinner. Good parking. Town is fantastic.

This was our third try here. They were very accommodating with seating. There were 3 at the bar when we arrived and no one else. We ordered three orders of wings, shrimp, and salad with chicken on it. ALL wings were cold, dry, and had very little sauce. They forgot the chicken for the salad. The shrimp were typical frozen...

Food was hot and good (Cheese stake and onion rings). I was there on a Wednesday so the place was not too packed. Waitress was very nice. Will go back. The only thing I did not like was the onion rings. They were out of a bag and not hand made. For the extra $1.50 up-charge I expected better. Stick... More

Thank you for spending time with us and for taking the time to post your review. You are correct, our onion rings are not not hand made.

We visit West Jefferson a couple times a year and hadn't been to Boondocks yet. We were excited to try it this trip but were a little put off by some of the reviews. I suppose every establishment has a bad day, but they were top notch for us. The interior has been tastefully transformed (formerly Fraser's) and the TV... More
