Since my daughter lives in Asheville we often go there. While it's really just your basic pub type bar, the music is always terrific. We discover fabulous bands almost every time we go. The staff is nice and the drinks won't break the bank. For grown-ups looking for a fun time it's a great... read more

The food was overpriced and mediocre, the beer selection was OK. There was ample seating for a group.

We went in for a little music on a Friday night after a wonderful dinner. Heard some great music from the Floorboards and enjoyed some wonderful NC local brews. Definitely a place to relax and unwind on a Friday night

You can get a good beer here and some reasonable food. Just don't expect good service because this is one of those places where the staff gives preferential treatment to their friends and if they don't know you, you barely exist to them. The whole bar is a bit too tragically hipster but though crusty on the edges it is... More

Stopped here on a Friday, early afternoon to grab a bite and kill some time. It turned out to be a great place to listen to music. If we didn't have to leave we would have stayed all night. We had a few short pours to try some of Green Man's brews with our meal. The atmosphere was perfect. We... More

Place was packed at 2pm on a Saturday afternoon. Hot cider was too sweet. Loved the Scotch egg. Bison burger was fantastic. about $20-25 per person with booze, excluding tip.

We were short-term visitors to Asheville, looking for some good, authentic music, and were guided to Jack in the Wood. Great choice - terrific music, friendly crowd, bar food if you want it, only a $5 cover on a Saturday night.

This pub features jamming by local fiddle/banjo/guitar bluegrass players. It's a pub menu, so it's limited but tasty and affordable. We'll go back for sure!

The atmosphere is unbeatable. We went on a Sunday for Irish night. The music fit the atmosphere making it so relaxing and enjoyable. The food was top notch. I highly recommend it day or night. I will absolutely be back.
