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

Thank you for not letting a few bad reviews stop you from seeing for yourself what Boondocks Brewing is all about. We have had the privilege of serving over 22,000 guests since November 1, 2014 and yes we do make mistakes occasionally as all humans do. We learn from those mistakes and greatly appreciate it when someone takes the time... More

Thank you for taking the time to post your review and we hope that you will return soon. Operating a business in a small town is a challenge at times but that just makes me that much more determined. Ashe County and West Jefferson are amazing places to live, work and visit which is one of the reasons that I... More

Two of us had burgers (ranch burger and the carolina burger), one with reg. fries, and one with sweet potato fries. Burgers were prepared exactly as we asked, and were excellent. Our friends had the cajun chicken sandwiches with fries -- they also were very pleased with their food. We'll definitely be back.

Thank you for dinning with us and for posting your review. With two full service bars and two large dinning areas the atmosphere does get a little noisy at times but we take that as a sign that people are enjoying themselves as the noise does not come from our TVs or background music. In the future if you feel... More

Let me begin by stating we are most appreciative of the owner's investment in the community and local economy. When the restaurant first opened, the revised menu was refreshing and the food was enjoyable. We would dine once or twice a month but have cut back to once every two or three months due it the gradual decline of the... More

Steven, Thank you for your honest feedback and for your support.

We are also making some changes in the Kitchen and unfortunately we will be... More

No matter what we ordered there was a mistake. Drink orders were messed up. Appetizers were not right and dinner had a different mistake. ALso out of so many of the beers we wanted. Very disappointed. Good thing was all the TV's to watch football.

Thank you dining with us and for taking the time to post your review.

This is an attractive place and everyone is very nice. I wanted so much to like it that I gave it many more chances than I should have. In a town with any choices at all, this place would not have survived. The previous poster who commented about food being "heated up" was 100% correct. Though they often have very... More

Our family went to Boondocks while on vacation in West Jefferson. It was my favorite resturant we went to during our visit. I had the Okra salad and the rest of our group ate hamburger. Everyone enjoyed their meal. We ate outside on the terrace area on a warmer afternoon and it was beautiful to look out at the mountains.

We went to the NC mountains to find a "cut your own" Christmas tree farm and stopped for lunch here. The restaurant is located in downtown West Jefferson which has many cute, locally-owned shops. We've had pretty good experiences at most restaurant/tap rooms we've been to, but this wasn't one of them. The restaurant was very clean and everyone was... More

Ate here twice in 3 days. Great sandwiches, salads and burgers. They have great craft brew beers as well, the milk chocolate Belgium was wonderful! Even took a growler to go! Don't miss this place when in West Jefferson.
