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 Hamburgers

The first time we went here a couple of years ago I didn't care for it. Went back and loved it. Large selection. We had hamburgers on our last visit and they were very good.

I have eaten here many times. The food was very good the first few times, but has gradually gotten worse. This last time, it was terrible! My burger had no flavor. The bread pudding dessert was cold and hard as a rock. The waitress this last time was good, but I will not go back.

I sat at the bar, and the bartender was great! He was friendly and struck up conversation with everyone despite being extremely busy. The menu had everything from salads to sandwiches to fancy specials. I got a honey orange brew (amazing!) and thai spiced salmon (overcooked but still tasty) and was very happy. The atmosphere was laid back, with live... More

Thank you for posting your review and for your kind words. I apologize if your salmon was not prepared properly. That is actually one of my personal favorites so I am glad that you gave it a try.

There is not a whole lot to choose from in West Jefferson but we happened on this place and will return. Staff was friendly and the place was busy. Food was well prepared and the suggested wine has become a staple at home.

Fantastic food and great craft beer. Take a seat on the patio, order a flight and people watch. My husband had the cheese steak and I had the chicken, pear and pecan salad. Dessert of the day peach cobbler, yum!!!

Two couples met for dinner and this family atmosphere restaurant. We had Rueben, Chicken Tenders, Apple Harvest Salad and Tuscan Chicken and all meals were well prepared and tasty.

Had visitors from Alabama and took them down to West Jeff for lunch, looking around and visit the Cheese Factory. Lunch was the best! Two of us had burgers and two had lunch special.

We enjoyed a great surprise birthday party at Boondocks last Saturday. The Manager John went out of his way to help accommodate our party of 25 or so in the outdoor area of the restaurant that is not eligible for reservation.
