We come here every time we come to Asheville. Typical pub food (delicious) and great beer selection. Clean, super friendly staff and great local music. Hope to see them again soon.

My wife and I arrived in Asheville last Thursday evening and were walking around Asheville looking for some live music. We had heard Jack of the Wood had some so we stopped in and found some seats at the bar. The band was in their last set by the time we arrived but there was a jam session afterwards. The... More

As you approach the entrance, your first thought may be "artsy", and you may be right, but soak in the simple ambience, and relax to the background music (yes, you can actually have a conversation at normal tones), while indulging on one (or more) of the multiple local craft ales (or in my case, a local cider - Noble).

Have only ever been here on a Monday with friends and family to play QUIZZO, an Asheville version of Trivial Pursuit. Always, always fun. You have a team, come up with an irreverent name and answer the questions. The MC reads ten questions with a common theme and you are given two minutes or so to answer. After the first... More

Stopped in for brews with friends to kill sometime before dinner. Friendly staff and a nice selection of drafts.

This has always been one of my favorite places. The food is great. The beer- super! And the live music- informative, new, great! The parking is where you can get it but this place is more than worth it!

I've been to Jack of The Wood many times and it's always a great experience. The bartenders are fantastic and their hempnut burger is my absolute favorite! It's by far one of my favorite local places to go!

We landed at Jack of the Wood for dinner on 12/27. The place was rocking with a band, lots of folks drinking and eating. Our table shared the bison nachos to start. They were delicious. I had the fish tacos for dinner while everyone else chose a burger. My dinner was top notch and the burgers got rave reviews as... More

Good at best...more of a drinking and music spot than food. Horrible parking. It was fortunate that we had to park by Asheville brewing Company and ended up going there to check it out and have a few beers.
