Spent a lot of time on the internet looking at dining options for our brief stay in Asheville, NC. The menu and beers looked awesome at LAB. Let me start with the good.......The service and atmosphere were awesome. It's a great venue. However, the food was mediocre at best. My daughter ordered scallops over grits and the grits were so...

Nothing wrong with the place - service was fine, my masa cakes and spinach was bland but friend raved about the beet gnocchi. My second time there but my experience still registers "average".

Get the beet gnocchi...seriously so dang good! Friendly staff and live music on some nights. Had a seasonal pumpkin beer. This was after I was allowed to try a few sips of some other brews so I could better make up my mind. Vegan and vegetarian friendly.

Small, but GREAT beer menu. Perfect music to have some good chat. I would like other kind of music, but can't complain. I always enjoy it. My favorite: 1st. Gear

I was visiting Asheville for the first time. It was recommended to me that I visit L.A.B. I went here to eat and to drink a good beer. The food was very good. I had the pretzel bites to get started b/c pretzels with beer are a must. I ordered the dark beer. I can't remember the name but I... More

We were with friends checking out Asheville on a quick day trip and decided to stop here for lunch. The service was really S L O W. I mean, like astronomically slow...so strange since they weren't overly crowded. The beers were quite bitter (so if you like that sort of thing, then you'll love it). I ordered the pork tenderloin...

The beer was good and the burgers with blue cheese and grilled onions were fantastic! Best burger ever. We also had a delicious caesar salad with their own house dressing. Food was great and reasonably priced with a good atmosphere. We stuck around and played Monday night Trivia which just added to our fun evening. Great place to eat, drink... More

We were visiting Asheville and tried several of the brewery's. Lexington avenue Brewery had three young ladies standing at the front when we arrived. We read the sign that said Seat Yourself and did so. One of the "hostesses" came over and put the menus on the table without an introduction or comment and walked away. Our server came over... More

I have enjoyed several very good meals at LAB, but that was years ago. The beer is decent too, though I'd imagine it's getting harder to compete with all the new offerings in the area. I am very sorry to say that the last meal I ate there was so gross and inedible that it is unlikely I will ever... More
