We stopped by the LAB for a couple of beers. We did not eat there, but the food looked good...better than your average pub grub. They brew their own beer, and it is really delicious. The restaurant space is very cool, open areas and a mix of tables and high bars. Our waitress was knowledgeable, friendly, and fast! We will... More

Had dinner here with friends that live in the area. Ordered "The Goat" beer and a Buncombe County cheese plate appetizer. The beer was great with a mild smoked saison flavor. My entree was the Yemiser W'et. Now if you know and like Eithiopian food this is not it. It's the chef's take on it. More like a lentil soup... More

Located in the heart of downtown Asheville, this is a great spot to relax and watch the parade of people outside. They hired a new brewer last year and all of his delicious brews (9 on tap) are now available to enjoy - get a sampler of all of them and then pick your favorite. I did not eat here... More

Burgers, Steak are excellent. Beer brewed on premises, awesome beers! I hope the menu changes soon, as some dishes I just didn't care for, but that is just me. I always sit at the bar, as it's a great way to see everything going on! Ask for Rachel or Amanda! Hope to be going back in a few days.

Pretty cool atmosphere for a brewery. Love the outdoorsy feel it had with the bays open. My husband really enjoyed the beer. My kids weren't fond of the kids meals. My son and daughter said the chicken tenders were dry and hard. I tasted it and they were overcooked/old. My BBQ Chicken sandwich was pretty tasty. My husband loved his... More

Judging by many reviews, maybe the night shift is better than the day shift in preparing dishes. I ordered the PLT, prosciutto, lettuce and tomato for a mid-afternoon lunch. First off, expensive prosciutto should NOT be cooked as it is already aged. Cooking it as if it was bacon will kill it. The prosciutto ham was extremely salty and fatty... More

Choose somewhere else. Only local beers. Limited food selection. Salads were good but gumbo wasn't gumbo -- Campbell's gumbo soup in a can would be better -- I've had a lot of different gumbos & this needed to be deleted from the menu & the recipe (if there is one) destroyed. Pass on by.

I had trouble finding a place that had non-pub options and a brewery. This fit the bill. Great people watching. Quieter at tables near the open to the street windows. Beet gnocchi, Brussels sprouts with pork belly, and peanut butter pie were all yummy, though not culinary perfection. Local, adventurous, and interesting combinations. Great service. Ample portions. Didn't love the... More

I like the LAB food, just don't like the music level...too loud for me, especially if sitting on the patio area. The food is always top notch. I had the Falafel sandwich the other day. It was very tasty...just a little messy. It was a wrap...that came unwrapped. I tore the wrap in half and made two small sandwiches...much easier... More
