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.

Great food in the quaint town of West Jefferson

Really nice restaurant located downtown West Jefferson. A variety of televisions located throughout the large seating area and around the bar give it a sports bar atmosphere. My husband and children were seated quickly and had a very nice table by the window where we could watch all the hustle... read more

This is a top-notch restaurant and upscale brew pub. It is well-managed and the staff is trained in consistent service. The menu has a variety of options from appetizers and sandwiches to fish and steak entrees. There are plenty of events and special nights with live entertainment. In Ashe County? In Watauga or anywhere nearby? Go to Boondocks!

When visiting West Jefferson over a long weekend we usually eat at Boondocks at least once. The food at Boondocks I would rate as average and over priced for its quality. What continues to bring me back to Boondocks is its micro-brewed beer. I'm a stout beer drinker and the fall stout keeps bringing me back. It is very good... More

Thanks for stopping in. I did follow up with the Manager on Duty Sunday and she remembered your situation as did our kitchen manager. Actually both cheese and onions were on your original order. The fact that we use our house made Beer Cheese as opposed to sliced cheese sometimes causes the cheese to "get lost" as a result of... More

Thank you for spending some time with us and for posting your kind review. I apologize if our pricing seemed a little high.

My daughter and I enjoyed dinner at Boondocks this Monday night. Even though they were super-busy, they took good care of us and the food was excellent.

While in town, we had to try some local brews. So I had a flight of beers of what they made there. One called "Truth Serum" wow, had a bite to it, but it was tasty! I'm sure enough of those and it would live up to its name. We shared a pepperoni Flatbread and chips and salsa. Salsa was... More

This was a Really nice restaurant with a great atmosphere. They were able to accommodate our group of 10 and the wait was not too long. The service was great and everyone in our group loved their food. Their blue cheese bacon burger was amazing! They also have a great selection of their own craft beers
