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.

Good Place to Eat in West Jefferson

My parents and I visited this restaurant. Dad had the fish and chips with cole slaw and he is still raving about the cole slaw! Mom had the burger and fries and it was cooked perfectly for her - such a large burger that Dad had to help her. I had the fried okra salad which was good. I was... read more

I was through riding the Blue Ridge Parkway and on nights off I'm always looking for a good beer bar or brewery. Because West Jefferson had Boondocks, my wife and I decided to stay in WJ for the night. It turned out to be a good move. Boondocks has excellent in house beer. My mug is tipped to the brewer...

Beer selection is great. Food can be good n then a return trip might find food not so good. Inconsistent. We have changed meeting place with friends to a local pub down the street where we have found the beer to be excellent n the food always good. I think that Boondocks might have issues in the kitchen.

I've tried the fish and chips twice and both times the fish (cod) was overcooked - considerably. Burgers are not bad here. Beer selection is unusually good, but they don't seem to pay the same amount of attention to the food. There are better places to eat in West Jefferson.

The place was busy on a Friday night with 95% of inside capacity filled. the outside was not busy but was a cool evening. 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.😄
